An Even Break, From David Higgs

December 28, 2006 |

W. C. Fields said “never give a sucker an even break,” but this sucker got one, and I have to share it. Late this past November I started trading futures for the first time. However the futures datafeed I was getting was still in delayed mode. So the first couple of rounds I placed, I was watching old data stream by (I did think it was strange how my positions were acting with regard other market activities) and it wasn’t until I place an S&P market order and got filled 1.5 points better that I called to find out about the data, and got it live. So dumb luck fell my way. Embarrassing and comical.
