  1. Can Emini crude be traded with IB, either through clearport or globex. I am confused and can't seam to find out.
     
  2. globex. other deal was put on hold.
     
  3. Yeah, I am looking at the Oct QM right now on IB. 7040x45
     
  4. hows the liquidity on globex, and what is the the complete symbol on IB if you don't mind.
     
  5. Front month is November. QM V5
     
  6. The only available month shown on IB is Oct.
     
  7. I have never traded oil futures, but from watching them on my IB account I would much rather trade IPE than NYMEX. With IPE the price levels mean something and there is much more electronic trade. With NYMEX all you doing is lining up to give away your scalp.

    Yeah, this sucks. Its impossible to trade seasonal spreads with IB.

    It's impossible to trade them anywhere. NYMEX only lists the spot month, adding the next month out at 10 days before the end of trading in the front month.
     
  10. FORGET NYMEX emiNY QM, trade the REAL contract at IPE (symbol @ IB is COIL)

    It's for Brent, not WTI Light sweet crude oil
