Options and Futures Trading Broker

Postby Relativity » Sun Mar 06, 2011 5:28 pm

Just wondering : does anyone know any broker that provides demo accounts Options and Futures Trading?

I don't know much, but maybe it might be worth taking a look (that the volume information and maybe market depth is presented differently?), since I heard EURUSD is tradable via Options/Futures. If such information can provide an edge, why not look into it? I do appreciate any help in advanced. Thanks!

Thanks a lot!

After trying out the demo, I figured my objectives are:

1-To see if looking at the ratio of Open Interest VS Volume in the future's D1 chart will increase our probability of trading the D1 wick (in other words, rat zone trading). All markets are interrelated/correlated in someway.

2-Because of point 1 plus the fact that Futures and Options are markets that are inherently bearish in nature. No idea about Forex since it wasn't really clearly stated in the book. Hence always trading short gives us an edge. I want to investigate this statement. Seems to be the case since after looking at all my successful trades, a huge amount of them are shorts.

Got these 2 ideas from Trading Rules that Work: The 28 Lessons Every Trader Must Master by Jason Alan Jankovsky.

Anyone has anything to add/criticise?

There is something consistent here that's maybe tradable? Hmmm....

http://www.nasdaq.com/investing/forex-open-interest.stm
http://www.investopedia.com/articles/tr ... 102203.asp

Volume = Number of Transactions Liquidated so far
Open Interest = Number of Open Contracts

Current D1 Volume is 90% of Current D1 Open Interest + Price in Rat Zone = Safe to trade

Still cracking my head to understand! Anyone with futures/options experience here? If any correct, then I will run stats for the pairs to see if the interpretation is valid.

Learning how to use Time and Sales + Market Depth + Volume/Open Interest ratio to gain the edge. So far I say, its working. Will take my quite a while to learn how to 'read the tape' correctly.
