  1. Hi All,

    would like to start this thread to see what instrument is best suited for forex trading. I have been in markets for last 4 years. has been trading eminis. I am an Ib sustomer.

    I can not trade between 10.15 a.m to 1 a.m and 4 p.m to 7p.m EST. all other time are fine. would like to know which tickler to follow and what would be a ideal candidate.

    please share your though. My trade is based on price analysis looking for some 6 to 10 pips move.


    thanks
