Like the dax on crack... so much fun to trade a contract that MOVES.
Where are you getting your charts? I am using TradeStation and I don't think HSI is available.
Through Bloomberg, but also thru IB charts -- IB shows VWAP on the bar as well.
Is this the contract you are referring to?
It seems quite expensive given a point value of HK$50 and RT exchange fees of $23 per contract.
Can you provide info on the ATR (doesn't matter how many days back)? Contracts traded per day? Your cost?
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. I gauge the HSI not by the multiple but by how much each point is worth:
5 pts= $32.00 USD
10 pts= 64.00
20 pts= 128.00
plus IB's fees
My only suggestion in trading this contract is not to go to the bathroom. In fact, you may even wanna think twice about blinking.
HSI current 5-day ATR is 178.
Put up a chart of this so we can see what it looks like...
Maybe not the best solution for RT trading, but decent enough to generate interest
Can you tell me what the symbol is for IB please. I aslso use Mytrack.
Symbol for IB is HSI and the current month is December. The last time I used mytrack, they don't have it available, but check with them if they have it now.
