    Since the nymex is raising margin rates i was looking at trading crude oil on ICE instead of the nymex. does anyone know if the spreads and liquidity are pretty much the same as the nymex contract or is it harder to trade on ICE?

    The ICE doesn't trade is merely the shadow of the CL contract on the Nymex (which is to say that WTI-ICE is all arbed/balckbox)...the liqudity is terrible, the DOM only makes sense when you are watching it relative again to Nymex, and the slippage is extreme...
  3. Sounds like a typical AMEX stock :D
