Currency contract options feed from CME?
 
Where could i get free or demo (broker or service) of currency contract options live tape ? Maybe someone can recommend broker that offer this ? I know TOS offer this but with 10 mins delay and you need to fund your account with 3,5k$ ... So any info about that would be appreciated .

Not many people trade options but when they do, it's often with massive volume. Since they must be settled at a particular time you can sometimes see big orders hitting the charts - if you do follow options but don't have the equity to trade them try trading their effect on the market.

that would be etrade.....

i trade fx options on most all currencys.... you can check some of my posts and links in this thread.... etrade platforms offer free streaming quotes.... but you might wait for weeks or months before you see any buys or sells ..... very often i will be the only volume..... check the aud, gbp, cad, nzd and such..... look at how many strike prices and months you have to go through to find a single open contract......

i also use metastock, not metatrader, but you must pay for that platform and it requires a paid data plan..... etrade is free.....

be sure to check the open interest...... it's almost non-existant....... that means your at the market makers mercy.......h

What i meant is that the feed is straight from chicago mercantile exchange not from some market maker . It's something like this . It can not be manipulated by brokers . Also i just talked to etrade representative and they said that they do not offer demo accounts , to bad ...

P.S I want the feed not for option contract trading purposes but just for the feel what big guys are doing , and set spot trades according to that.

You won't get this for free. All CME data is available for a fee.

hey leanlow...... haven't forgot about you.... downloaded the platform and looked at it briefly.... this cyprus week has been quite busy so have not had proper time.....

and actally i do it inverse...... i use metatrader, or spot forex, to help me trade fx options.... as mentioned before, very few trade fx options.... so you might not have many takers here......

are you thinking about using the option traders as a contrarian indicator..... h
