  1. .... will you trade next Monday 28 without fear of disruption with your platform, especially in this volatile environment?

  2. No, and that is a big NO.

    I think I'll take the week off and see how it copes with the NFP.

    Have had enough data and other outages not under our control last few days.

  3. I agree with you.
    Maria, which software do you use?

    Except for a temporary issue IB had with GTC orders the move of the mini Dow contract went OK. If orders seem to be working I'm not going to hang back just because of the move.
  5. It's my understanding the the most of the volume and complex strategies are on the T-Notes/Bonds; so it will not be the same thing...
  6. Good old tradestation 2000i with IQfeed as datafeed, IB as broker with a backup broker. Sit tight for only a few trades in a week but when we are in then only for a short timespan. Focussing on the "gotcha" trades.

  7. ...clearly almost no one is worried...

    Well I'm experiencing problems already, but not sure if it's my broker or the rollout to globex.

    IB's tws is reporting no Total volume nor high/low for day. bid/ask/last size is coming in though.

    And the 5lvl book is for the birds, btw...
  9. Still no total volume on bond futures - just size - any word on this?
  10. On TT X_Trader at the moment I see 39000 lots traded; MD Trader shows 5+5 regularly with bid/ask size.

    We have to wait at least the cash to open to check the situation...
