I understand that Futures has a "premarket" time 5 or 10 minutes before the regular market open where traders are allowed to modify and/or place STOP or LIMIT orders.

Does you support this "premarket" for any futures contracts?

If so, could you give some details:
- a representative contract for whom this "premarket" is supported
- how many minutes before regular market open
- which days of the week

If not, could you speak to whether you have any plans to support Futures "premarket" in the future?

I spoke With Terry re. this question today:
- Premarket Futures hours are supported in real accounts
- Pretty much for all futures contracts
- These premarket hours are listed here: http://www.cmegroup.com/trading_hours/

Thanks Terry and Gain Support,
