Are you referring to her gap trades? Or something else?No, not her gap trades, I mean she showed me how to get the best entry by shorting real close to hod or the current swing high. I use a 2 minute chart (can't post it for some reason, Jeff's site says its too large of a file) but if ya look at an intra day chart, you'll see the peaks - I look for those and thats how you get the best entry when you short.Commissions not killing you? Waht are they at IB?They are $4.80 for a round trip trade, so on the ES (S&P Emini), all I need to make $7.70 profit is .25 (ES trades in .25 increments) so commisions do not even get a consider from me - - unless I am having a bad day :-/How does it work out to be so low?They have different margin requirements on different futures as well as for different times of day or night. I think margin might be a requirement to trade futures.For instance, on the ES, they want you to have as your minimums: $1969 for regular hours. For outside of market hours, they want your account to have at least $3938.For the NQs, its $1500 for regular hours and $3k for outside of market hours........I am not 100% sure that I am reading their web site correctly but I believe this is what they are saying.They trade almost around the clock (while I was writing this post, I shorted the ES @ 822.50 and covered @ 819.75) couldn't help myself he he he.....shoulda flipped but too tired to watch it anymore tonight. The hours for the Eminis are (eastern) 12:15am to 4:15pm4:45pm to 9:15 pm9:30pm to 11:00 pmThey open sunday evening @ 6:30One of these days, I will figure out how to get my file size down so I can post my indicators.
