Futures market rolls


Recommended Posts

Currently there is an option to auto-roll futures positions, usually 1 day prior to expiry.

I would find it very useful to have the option to execute a roll myself on the platform without having the risk of being "legged up" (executing one side of the roll and the other side moving away before you can execute that side).  I guess it could take the form of a "roll now" button that is greyed out until IG lists the far month.  When the button is clicked, it will buy near and sell far (or vice versa) simultaneously, thus rolling your position with no legging risk.

    • When there's no volatility and very limited price action in the forex market what does a trader do? Are the only solutions/options: Risk more capital Use more leverage if possible Extend your trading time, meaning hold your trades longer Any other ideas?
    • Here's a catchy tune to have in your head while you 'just buy the fekking dip'.     Push it!
    • Hi RFSmithers, Thanks for the tips... But when I searched for trusted "ECN" broker in Australia for CFD Index trading, IG Market is among the returned result! So with what you suggested and what the search result I got, IG Market seems to be still the one to stick with for CFD Index trading. Please note that, regarding the market trend is to be against your trade or not, from my experience so far, I think it is really up to you on when to enter the trade, for example: - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is flat with no trend, then it is just like you jump into the calm water and then you make the big splash which could be against yourself - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is on trending, where: if you enter against the trend, then you will be eaten alive from there - FULL STOP - Period; however if you enter on riding the trend, then you will be picking up the fruits along the way through...   So with the above, to summarise, it seems to me that (of course - correct me if wrong): 1) IG Market is still the trusted ECN broker in Australia for CFD Index trading 2) A trader needs to know when to enter the trade to ensure s/he to ride on the trend to pick fruits, but not to be eaten alive.   Cheers Victor           What do you think? Cheers.
