How wide is a spread on silver on globex? Is it better than oanda? Oanda has 4-6 cents.
depending on the time of day and the orderflow
the spread can be under 2 cents in silve futures
other times when some market participants are afraid
of more "monkey business" ( i.e. if there was a spike up or down in the price of silver a minute or two ago prior )
the spread can be alot wider than Oandas until
the market calms down
Where can I check current difference between the best bid and the best ask? I checked cbot site, cme, liffe but I don't see that.
here ya go
mind you this time of evening in the EST USA
the spread is wide and volume thin
esp with the forex movement in the last few hours up and down
12.71 X 12.72 1/2
basis dec futures in SI ( comex )
Ok, so it's only $0.015 + commision? This is great. Oanda has (after hours) 5-6 cents.
Where can i check spread on-line? Like this http://www.euronext.com/landing/landingInfo-3127-EN.html
Only 1 cent during active trading hours. Often just half a cent. Get a real broker and see for yourself.
Screw all the other suggestions. Use nymexdata.cme.com . You can watch the live quotes for yourself and see the book and spreads for free for oil, nat gas, gold, silver and handful of others.
