Trading Tools & Links
LMAX - If you are a Forex trader these guys in London are hard to beat. The spread on EUR/USD is often 0.2pips or less, there is no dealing desk and they’ve invested heavily in technology to provide a super fast execution.
They now offer CFD’s on Crude Oil and DAX.
Trade Crude oil at $1 per tick per contract instead of the usual $10 at NYMEX. This allows new traders to improve their crude oil trading skills in a live environment without large stakes. Implementing powerful scaling strategies now becomes feasible.
Tradestation - The charting package I use. Get your charting free by becoming a brokerage client and doing 10RT’s per month
Tradestation Time & Sales Tool - Groups large trades back into more meaningful orders. A nice tape reading tool.
“Solidus Big Trade Time & Sales”
CME Globex broadcasts trades in the smallest size; for example, if a 1000-lot buy is filled with 1000 one-lot sells, 1000 one-lots are reported. This indicator uses Streaming Data Optimization to compress small trades at the same price/time into blocks, more accurately representing market activity.
