    ....yeh so what is the spread whenever i trade these futures? And what would be the comission for YM , i know ES is about $4 rt
  2. TGpop


    it's not the comission, im wondering how big the spread is in these futures, or is there a way to get no spread trading with a higher RT?

  3. Lemme' understand this, you are looking to buy on the bid and sell on the offer?

    The spread is set by the CME/CBOT exchange, not the IB.

    Are you sniffing glue or is is it 420 already?

    If you mean what's the usual spread between bid and ask for the YM and the ES, the answer is 1 tick most of the time. YM can be a little wider once in a while.
