M6E charting

I am having difficulty finding charts for M6E (micro EURUSD currency futures).

Can I use EURUSD spot forex charts to trade this particular future?

@kazz, in a nutshell, yes... but do NOT chart M6E. As @tturner86 said (I learned this from your journal Terry, thank you!) chart 6E and execute on M6E. They move in lockstep but 6E is what is actually happening, M6E is only there by proxy. Eventually you might want to keep an eye on the spot, they can differ significantly at times, it may or may not matter depending on your trading style.

If you are just starting out then I'd say stay focused on 6E. Even though spot forex, 6E, 7E and M6E are all tied together, futures volume is the most accurate you can use.

As already mentioned, if you want to trade the M6E or the E7, always use the 6E for charting and more important, always use Limit-Orders!!

I kept an eye on the spot by having both doms up. Made it easy to reference when I went to enter.

Thanks, this really cleared things up for me.

I'm currently using 8 but really liked 7, I don't use very many indicators or anything that is specific to 7 or 8 so to me it really doesn't matter. I do think the play back is much better on 7 mine is always super slow to load ( what im doing now)
