Hello traders,

Can you help us push the Micro-CL contract on CME/NYMEX by voting in this poll? I started pushing the micro indices back in 2012 and it took too long to get it done. We want to show them that there is demand for micro-energies.

Vote here: https://twitter.com/FuturesTrader71/status/1159824072240455680?s=09

I will be meeting with directors at CME later this week.

Appreciated!

@FuturesTrader71

I will vote for this. I hope you make this happen. I have seen so much benefit for new traders from the micros. There are quite a few journals here on FIO which may have not been created if it were not for the micros being available. Not to mention the great people who are now participating daily here on the forum.

I have used the micros myself to test strategies with real money which I could have not done with the full size contracts. This has been a huge benefit for me.

Thanks for the push to make this happen!

Hi FT71,

I am with you, but I am not signing up to Twitter just to vote - sorry. But show CME this post as I would trade a CL micro.

While you are at it, get the CME to fix up the currency micros so they are properly 1/10th the full contract with the same tick size. If they did this for several of the currency pairs and promoted it fully I am sure they would attract a few of the Forex traders being ripped off with OTC/bucket shop/CFD providers.

I voted no. like mentioned in the past, we already have more than enough derivative products. that will lead sooner or later to major problems.

I'm a strong believer that certain markets are not suitable for everybody. if you're a beginner, start with stocks/etf first. only after you have a good understanding how financial markets work, then you could advance to options. and then maybe you're ready for futures. but certainly not from the beginning.

just imho

Seems to be tick by tick with ES. I have not seen anything that would stop me from trading. I think CME did a great job introducing and making the micros work.

For Tastyworks on the MES its about 1-tick of slippage every few trades, its no big deal, and this seems to be the consensus I've seen from other traders as well. There is no need to be concerned IMHO because the benefits outweigh the slippage/fees.

Cheers!

True. I think of MES as learning tools, that one should eventually move you over to miniz. And in a learning tools, you would want it to be challenging.

I can respect that. However, I'm not looking to create "more" products. I'm pushing to help deleverage the existing ones. Opposing this is like opposing ETFs. The specs are the same. Only the size is 1/10th so that folks who are learning can do so at the lowest cost possible. There is clearly a huge demand for micros seeing as the volume of the Micro-Indices has been explosive. Also, in futures, people don't have to deal with the rules that exist in equities. Anyway...I have seen more people blow up trading CL than I care to admit.
