    Hi Guys,

    I have scanned the forum for answers and think I know them but thought I would check with you all. My account is at IB.

    Any E-Micros have liquidity yet? (?no?)

    To do smaller size, are there e-minis one could trade, besides the euro, or should use FX pairs in IdealPro? (?Idealpro FX pairs are smaller and provide liquidity?) ; I don't want to use currency ETFs

    I can't bring up the IB contract for the E-mini Euro Future E7; All I get is an Index, Is it EED? if so what is the front month. (????)

    For FX should I use-try the NYBOT/ICE? Why?

    What are the best contracts to track Gold and Oil (?GC and CM or QL?)
    For these is ICE-NYBOT or NYMEX better?

    Since the contract periods are not quarterly, what is the general rule for the "next front month" when the current is expiring?

    Thanks in advance
