    Hi all
    we're not big fans of smartphones BUT if we could trade ES ( emini ) then we'd be happy to take a look. The problem is that I can't see how to do this reading the mobile app documentation. Anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Orderticket>ES > choose future >trade.
    And/or add tl a watchlist.

    IBKR mobile is pretty good.

  4. You are about to trade one of the worlds most efficient and competitive markets (S&P futures), you will got up against some of the smartest and richest trading firms.

    Yet you struggled to operate a simple mobile app, i don't rate your chances :D

    thanks for the head's up. Always ready to listen to people's opinions. Usually what I do is to get a rough estimate of the 1 sd move for the day using the vix ( again rough) and take it from there. I might check out the options skew. Thanks again though, always ready to learn.
