    Erm...u mean "buy bid sell ask" kind of scalping? Like placing orders between the spread? A.k.a. "not lifting the offer"?

    Its possible on EC. CME handles order in a first in first out basis so it can be quite hard as lots of scalpers are queuing up to scalp the spread.

    As for IdealPro I think IB rep mentioned we can place orders between the spread.

    Sorry, I'm used to just lifting the offer.

    4. What is your opinion about frequency of change of quote
    of filling order ? By future market more as by spot
