Sometimes i trade the dax but it seems that volume is poor. on my dome i have as bid an ask in the first row 2 or 3 contracts. on a depth of 5 rows between 12 an 20 contracts. There is also a spread of 2 tics between bid and ask.
At this speed the dax can go up or down very fast. so your risk trading the dax is very high.

As long there is no more volume i dont trade it any more.

Recently i restarted trading 6e and others instaed of the dax

i wish you succes in trading and be carefull because markets i away with you euro's or dollars before you even realize

Well depending on what you want to do with it, the fdax can be a great instrument to trade. However trying to do so manually could be a real struggle. Again, it all depends on what you want from it..

So true. It can be a great instrument to trade, but it can also kill you pretty quick. Definitely not a contract for the faint of heart. Like you said it all depends on what you want from it.

@ lawrencejude

Sorry for the late responce, i had to go working

Concerning your capital i would suggest asking how mutch your broker is asking for margin.

It really depends on the broker what the margin is

personally i would not trade under a capital of 15.000,00$ , even for 1 contract.

Liquid markets are cl, tf and others. But even es is tradeble. However its volume , since beginning 2015 is far less then

the 1,8 million it had before.

a good trading system and trading management is needed for all trading.

Succes with it .
