    losses and profits will remain in the currency of the contract. So if you have as USD account and trade a japanese product, you will have a yen balance in the account which you can convert back via IDEAL or IDEALPRO at your discretion.

    Where can I find delayed intraday charts for the JGB (big or small). I tried futuresource, but they have only daily (one day delayed) charts for the big contract. I tried IB but got the message that historical data was not available for this contract.

    I note that you specified delayed but you can plot realtime data from IB with Sierrachart. Lots of bad ticks in SJB data though

  4. What's the average volume on these contracts - SGX JGB & Osaka JGB?

    How liquid is it relative to the bund, ZB, ZN, Gilts, etc?

    I dont have Sierra charts - so not possible.

    Liquidity compared to ZB or ZN - very low. Average daily volume for JGB - about 4000 contracts. Scalping is not possible, but for longer term trades, I dont see a problem. I expect to lose 3-4 ticks for spread per round turn.

    We trade the JGB's in Tokyo. We get daily data from CSI and real-time from Bloomberg. I believe IB and Future Source also offer this exchange.

    We use a European full service broker and we're paying 2000 Yen per side - but it is a lumpy contract. You can trade the mini-JGB on the SGX - about 465 Yen.

    Yes, IB does offer the large contract in Japan for 750 yen. On the SGX we also offer the mini for 300 yen per contract.

    Select Real-Time Chart (not Historical Chart) on IB and you'll have a real-time intraday chart. This provides a maximum of one month data - and there doesn't seem to be any bad ticks at the moment.
