Need information - liquify and symbols - on US Treasuries,
ZB 30 yr. bonds
Zn 10 yr note
Bonds have about a $1000.00 per day range, trade about 125k a day on ACE, another 75k a day in the pit. Notes have about a $600.00 per day range and trade 250k on the screen and 100k open outcry. Very liquid, and maybe I'm nuts but ACE seems a wee bit quicker than Globex.
May I ask the tick value, and margin?
ZB trades in 1/32nd of a full point. Tick is $31.25
ZN trades in 64th's of a point. Tick is $15.625
Over night ZB margin is $2430.00 Maintance $1800.00
Over night ZN margin is $1755.00 Maintnance $1300.00
If you trade through IB, 50% daytrade margin applies just like ES
Do you know the exchange has a website with lots of useful info on it!
