I've been having issues with the excess funds sweep and been getting margin notices for the past 2 months in my SPI futures trading with Interactive Brokers.
How I understand it.... stocks are held in the Securities Segment, while futures are traded in the Commodities Segment (for ES, SPI, etc...
Anyone aware of a change in the pre-open auction procedure on the SPI 200 futures contract?
The pre-open auction settlement previously occurred at 9:49:30 but this has disappeared from my IB data feed from the beginning of last week.
I have not been able to find any info on the ASX website and...

If it's not much to ask could somebody email me 2 and a half months of data for the spi 200 APZU as far as I know also known as ASX/SP200, AP ASX200 and Yahoo has it as ^AXJO and google INDEXAXJO. I am confused!
The data I need needs to be the 24 hours in csv txt format or Ninja...
Im very new to this game and was wondering if any of you fine people had traded SPI Futures (APSPOT) on IB, or somewhere else?
I have a simple system in mind that would stop out and then reverse a trade e.g. turn a long into a short after a swing, I cannot find anywhere that mentions...
It is often quoted that the SPI is "Opened by amateurs, closed by professionals"
My intention is to use this thread as a place for preopen SPI discussion.
Any / all market calls will be made before the SPI opens. 09:49:30
A maximum Stoploss of eight points will be used, at all times.
Looking for reliable data vendors that supply historical minute data (willing to pay) for SPI futures. As much historical data as first released by the exchange.
Interfacing with TradeStation a bonus but not a requirement.
I've been circling the SPI futures contract now for around a month. Signed up to IB and I"m just putting down the final calculations when I hit a few concerns.
Now from my understanding the inital margin in roughly $6000 ATM. So if I entered into 3 contracts (initial 18k) and...
Hi, I've just started day trading the SPI using Ninjatrader, CQG for data and AMP Futures [Chicago] as the broker.
I'm using the ATM feature in Ninja, and manually trail my stops using the chart trader as the price moves.
When my stop was hit I got the error - Rejected: New - Invalid...
Does anyone know of a site that "charts" the Aussie, US and other FUTURES markets. 20 min delayed no problem.
At the moment I'm using this Bloomberg site.
Not bad but a chart would be give me a better picture
Thank you for your help.
Was just wondering whether anybody has any insights on what's happening to the SPI. It just looks as if the market structure has changed a lot recently. There is hardly any flow let alone any intraday volatility left. Either somebody big has left the field or some pricing advantage is chocking...
Dear fellow members;
Where can I get charts on SPI 200 End of Day? Previously Futuresource.com would show them, but they change their website and it is no longer available.
I would appreciate your advice.
Today is the first day I'm trading live on the Spi 200.
I would like to share my trades with interested traders.
It will hopefully help me to become a better trader and
allow others to share and we may learn something along the way.
I’m considering trading the SPI futures, but before I join up with IB or other broker, I’d like to have a play with some historical data in Amibroker. Can anyone here help me out with that, or know where I’d be able to get this data from?
As a beginner trying to learn about day trading the SPI, I was watching the 1 minute spi chart from about 1:30 to 3pm today just watching how it behaves. It took off on an uptrend at about 2pm after a head and shoulders pattern developed between 12:30 and 1:45pm. Did anyone trade it today...
