  1. i am a terrible sleeper. would love to know what the symbols are on ib for some of the most widely traded markets:japan, china, australia etc..any advice would be greatly appreciated. futures, stocks, whatever is trading in the middle of the night.

  2. moarla


    look also at europa: ESTX50, DAX, GBL
  3. I'd also like to know whats the best way to watch futures and international markets?
  4. This is a slippery slope, be careful :)

  5. good point Swordsman!
  6. not a good idea to stay up all night watching futures. Waste of time.
  7. Learn everything you can about the Japanese Yen (Asian Hours) and the EuroFx (London Hours).

    They trade very well, have a comparable tick size to the ES and generate some very nice over night moves ... but like swordsman says, you'd better make sure you have plenty of good coffee and can stay away! :)
  8. Unfortunately this guy is one of the biggest fucking idiots on the board.

    Ignore him.
  9. MHI, Mini Heng seng futures. Hong Kong index.
    The famous and hardcore GBP/JPY, sweet vol my love. Only for grown men. "Take a number and get on line for drama" (Mobb Deep).
