Not getting filled on the NQ globex

    My broker

    Security : Emini NQ

    Time Frame : 8.00 pm to 10.00 pm EST <globex>

    MY oder : BUY 1 NQ7UG at 1991.75 LIMIT, on the 'BEST' exchange selection within the order book.

    Currently the NQ BID = 1991.00, ASK 1991.50, size 3x15

    I see the 'Last Price' tick up 1991.25,1991.50, so there are some trades happening, BUT I am not getting filled, I even goto MKT order for a few minutes, still not filled.

    So why no action for me, do I need a seller with 1 NQ on the otherside for my trade to happen, is the indifference of order sizes the illiquidity thats stopping me getting a fill in GLBOX trading??

    Please advise

    Bloody hell...
  4. thats right u cant trade with them over night.i use them to and thats pisses me off some times, but on the other hand this way is better i trade just RTH when i see advancing-declining volume.over the night u completely guessing and probably loosing money most of the time.
  5. and if u still want to trade over night enter GTC order during TOS working hours

    Thanks I will use my Interactive Brokers (IB) to place orders. My system allows me to enter at these times. Thx

    As far as I can tell Interactive brokers are open all hours CME NQ trades, is this correct ?
