Clarification on Futures Contracts

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by StockKJay, Feb 21, 2007.

  1. Hey all, I have sent numerous messages to several futures brokers and have not received many responses.

    It appears to me that Interactive Brokers is the only broker that trades FUTURES currency crosses such as Australian/Yen, Euro/Swiss Franc etc. Why is this? Is there just no liquidity in these pairs in regards to futures or is IB just ahead of the pack as far as offering contracts? I understand that most would prefer Forex to trade these pairs, though I like the concept of Futures trading more so than Forex.

    I suppose my final question would be this, does IB offer EVERY contract traded electronically through the CME and why do other brokers not do this?
