    I have made some nice returns on it and also modified it a bit to cope with the scary moves lately.

  6. I've been a grain spreader for thirty years. Grain spreads behave very nicely.

    the liquidity level compared to nymex is low......but over the past couple of weeks (say 4 weeks) its even getting worse. last friday it wti/brent went from +50 to almost 0

    That is where i think the oppour. is

    Pls let me know if u have other ideas regarding this .

    i have managed to develop 4 trading strategies using the brent and the wti . would like to discuss this with anybody that is interested and also i want to learn

    I'm interested in trading the WTI-Brent spread from home and was wondering who you trade with.

    For some reason IB have all the single futures contracts but not the WTI-Brent Spread! :eek:
     
  9. it is awesome!...many times 1-2 tick spread...also, much less on daytrade margin then CL...to me, "Brent is the new mini Crude Oil"
     
  10. grain spreads are so much easier.
