    Default Trading Index Futures on ASX

    Hi All,

    I would like to ask for some help regarding trading the SPI200 on the ASX.

    I trade futures on the the CME using Ninja Trader and know my around there but i find it hard to gather information on how trade the SPI200 on the ASX.

    I dont know who provides a relatime datafeed and what the good brokers are for Aussie Futures?

    Also if someone knows if there is a way to use Ninja trader to trade australian futures that would be great.

    Many of the traders here use Interactive Brokers.

    Hi Chris,

    I'm in exactly the same boat as you. I trade the ES and YM using Ninja, but have been looking to trade the SPI (Aussie 200) using Ninja. I have been told that the SPI volume is very low and this is an issue. We would be better off trading the DAX or Nikkei using Ninja as the volume is a lot better.

    When you have a solution, please advise and vise versa.

    I once received a quote from Halifax, however I will never use them again, so this is not a solution for me.

    Happy trading

    Hi Mr J,

    No I haven't looked at any of these. Are any of them good to trade? Do you trade any of these yourself?
