I’ve started applying the same algos I have to trade stocks with to FX, and like the results. I’m interested in doing this because work basically has my balls in a vice grip when it comes to trading. I very seldom am able to get things pre-cleared. To make it worse, I like trading options, and there’s no guarantee that even if I can get cleared to load an options trade, that I’ll be cleared to sell it before it expires. I also have to hold those options for a minimum of thirty days - yeah, which is a deathtrap. However, there are absolutely no restrictions on me trading currencies… shwing!
I have a few questions, maybe we could even connect in private?
- What broker is the best? 2. Specifically, I’m looking to trade options on currencies, which brokers will do this? 3. Minimum account size to do point 2? 4. In a given 6 month time span, let’s assume I take 20 options positions, and that in each position I’m risking no more than 5% of my total account. I understand how this plays out in equities, but how will this play out on currency tradnig? I guess the question I’m asking here is how do you measure volatility on currencies? Just like you would with stocks?
