A couple of questions for members that are familiar with the pit trades S&P contracts: Futures Contracts: 1. what size is typically on the bid and offer in the full size contract? 2. how do you typically enter orders for the full size futures contract and how long does it take to enter an order and receive a confirm? Are you calling the floor brokers direct? Options Contracts: 3. how wide is the bid/offer spread for front-months, near-the-money strikes for puts and calls? 4. what size is typically on the bid and offer for front month, near the money strikes? 5. same as #3 but for spread orders, say for a near the money straddle? 6. same as #4 but for spread orders? 7. how do you typically enter orders for options on the full size contract? (for example do you first ask for an indication of the market and then enter the order? do you place the order over the phone? etc...) Thanks. I appreciate any responses or additional insight regarding the full size contract that you might offer.
