Squawk Box

  1. no one is allowed to do bond squawk

    I think this is do to some CBOT ruling

    or perhaps because most of the volume is done

    electronically ?

    do any of the squawk services do nasdaq 100 futures?

    xsquawk.com does nasdaq 100.

    A search on this site will point you to several discussions on squawk services and how some guys use them.

  3. it makes a tremendous amount of sense, and it can bring a smile to your face when Ben points something out, that you can visualize from recalling from your experience on the floor, or in the pit itself!

    Ben's Awesome.

    Lol, when I started out I used to do 645am to 430pm with a 5 min break to take a leak.

    I've been using a bond pit squawk for five years. Well, now it's a ten year note pit squawk. Since 80% of the volume is now done on the screen, the value is probably dubious at best. I seem to do just as well without.

  6. Ben was practically jumping out of his seat! (see chart)

    It took me a few days to get used to the pace, but after 4 days I finally got used to Ben. Realtimefutures was very flexible about letting me extend my trial as well.

    I've never been on a trading floor, so I didn't know what to expect but I find that listening to the squawk keeps me very focused.

    I tried LOS.net, but stopped after a day and went back to Ben. I couldn't get xsquawk to work on my computer...I have some type of conflict that I need to work out, so I hope I can give it a try also.

    I would recommend trying a squawk box if you haven't done so!
