Thanks everyone! Apologies for late response, I've been offline for a few days.

This has given me a much better understanding of how things are linked, or in this case, not linked together.

I will continue my hunt for futures contracts that provide the price movement AND the trading volumes that I am looking for. The ASX September contract certainly looks better, but I'm sure there are others out there that have an even better fit. I appreciate your patience.


I like it

Just as an update...

I've switched my system to using the contract price and also using the September expiration which is much better in terms of volumes. Things are dramatically improved. Thanks again for the guidance!

Good to hear.

You'll want to be trading the month with the highest volume, which will change.

Example: It's currently September for the CME S&P ES contract. The Sept ES expires Sept 18, and generally people will roll out to the next contract (December) in the preceding week (usually 8 days before). You will see volume start to decline suddenly in the old contract as people start rolling out.

I don't know anything about ASX, but there will be a month with the highest volume, and it would be a good idea to find out how it works for your futures and roll into the next high-volume contract month when volume shifts.

Good luck with your trading.
