Curious, what times are you trading these futures at? Have you tried trading M6E? I had the impression that M6E has more volume when compared to M6A and M6B.

I trade from just after London open up to NY open. 6pm to 10pm local time.

I am just not keen on trading the Euro. Like most forex starters, I did trade the euro a lot, but found I had no "connection" to it. I was not up with the European fundamentals and news influences. Once I concentrated on my local currancy - AUD/USD - my results improved.

I find the mico GBP future (M6B) good for trading the (sometimes) big trend after the London open.

I really have no trouble getting fills on the micros. While there are lots of bids and offers on the DOM, most are just from bots, so they are not much indication, however they do provide fills.

Thanks for your insight.

So I can assume that based on your trading system, the lower volume of E7 and M6E is not a problem?

No, not really. There is naturally slippage and sometimes it may take a bit longer to get filled. But that has actually taught me patience. It has also taught me to not scalp out on good trades. With M6E its about 5 ticks for B/E so you don't really want to be scalping.

second that! I traded the E7 for a while and finally moved over to the M6e simply because I wanted smaller size...the E7 takes a while to fill. The m6e is not too bad. But in general when your targets require a few hours or days to hit then the slippage & fills don't really matter.

What are the total costs for each M6E trade?

I am not merely referring to commissions , but brokerage too.

My broker recently informed me that the total cost for trading M6E is $5.00 (this includes commissions and brokerage)...

Why is the brokerage cost so expensive for such a tiny contract??? I am charged less to trade ES & CL!!!
