Tip


I have updated the title of this thread to better reflect its content, given the launch of the CME Group's E-Micro products.

I'm not a fan of sim trading. It's doesn't give you feeling of losing/gaining money. I start trading MES because I don't feel comfortable with runners. Instead of making 3-4 ticks I wanna make 3-4 points. Psychology is not so easy.

*CQG cost is for the SierraChart Data version. There is a minimum of $10 per month that pays for the first 100 sides. After that, it is .10 per side.

Purpose of new E-Micro's

Hi,

I noticed that daily volume on let's say MES (Micro e-mini S&P 500 futures) is almost 10 times higher than the open interest of the same future. Are you using these for day-trading or just warming up before building positions?

Micro SnP

I'm using it as a hedging instrument when the SnP is too big. It's a way to get a more precise hedge. It might be pedantic, too precise, as in the imprecise hedge is relatively small but that's how I have been using them.

/MES trading

Using MES for scalping and adjusting deltas on my position as the market moves. Easy to do and less hedge cost.

I love it after blowing a few accounts over the years 5000 aand 2500 in ES. I can now use larger stops let my entries play out. I have not placed a option trade in two weeks, no more time decay. My goal is only 50 - 100 dollars a day what i need to replace my salary. With the recent volatility I getting that using one mes contact easily.
