futures mini trading on Free account

Recommended Posts

I'm just using the free account right now.  I'm trying trade futures mini like the ESZ17 and NQZ7.  Can I do this on the free account.  When I try to open a chart with those symbols it won't show any data.  But the charts will show Google or Microsoft no problem.

You need to use MT symbol format for futures.  The correct symbols are

@ESZ17
@NQZ17

this is assuming your datafeed supports futures. Which one are you using?

Regular Ally Invest accounts do not support futures (which is the one you have). Only Ally Invest accounts on the MB Trading platform support futures. Completely separate accounts at this time

So to confirm, if I need live Emini data and trading, what brokers are my options and is this available with a broker who covers the cost of Medved Trader monthly?

Ok, Optimus is not interested in small traders or those getting started.  I will check with ALLY/MB.  What is the current situation with IB's accounts for Eminis and datafeeds from IB?
