Where does the ER2 trade

  1. I placed a bid on the ER2 and I'm pretty sure I was the highest bid and first at that price. There was a sell market order and I was not filled.

    I placed the bid on Interactive Broker to GLOBEX.

    I look at the TradeStation Time and sales and it says the exchange was CME. I thought that there was only (1) exchange for futures unlike stocks.
  2. Globex is the electronic platform of the CME. All kinds of stuff is traded on it now though.

    ER2 is traded via globex where a computer matches trades. There is no market maker, etc to blame. I'm not sure what happened with your order, but I have traded thousands of times via Globex and very rarely have problems.

  4. Globex is run by CME.

    I think orders on Globex are pro rata, so a bigger order than yours will get a fill before you do even if you were first.
  5. Pro rata on Globex? Whacha talking about.
  6. Yes, my misktake, only a few products like Euro Dollars futures are pro rata, the vast majority like ER2 are FIFO.
