Your personal preference doesn't count. There is no serious argument current CFD's/Certificate traders should move to the miniFDAX.

As choke35 already said....it is a REGULATED market and I would always prefer a regulated vs an unregulated market.

Traders who already trade the FDAX won't move to the mini but traders who hedge via the FDAX may move to the mini.

So traders being just fine trading in, in your words, "unregulated" markets won't be fine with it anymore after miniFDAX is issued ? If this is the only argument ... so be it.

That's no matter of personal preference but starts with logics.

If you think about ever having a theoretical edge over a non-DMA issuer and/or market-maker on which you depend for better or worse, dream on.
Anyone who gets that will prefer a regulated playing field that is at least as level as possible for as many as possible.
From there on it's hard (and sometimes maybe unfair) competition and you acting within .

If the Eurex doesn't screw it up, I expect similar effects as in the US with the ES and other E-minis.
In the US, the mini asset class changed the entire market dynamics: Liquidity is much higher, spreads
are lower, RM/MM possibilities are better, and transparency is higher than they have ever been with full-sized
contracts (and more transparent than those of CFDs/Certs/Warrants anyway).

I guess a similar ratio like in oil. The CL now trades at 278K, the QM at 7k.

Which products do you trade?

I'm a little more optimistic since the ratio of mini index futures is normally better than the ratio of commodities.
Besides CL is already a comparably small (but very volatile) contract, only about 1/5 - 1/6 of a full-sized FDAX.

Are you seriously trading or are you just talking and hiding behind "regulated markets" ? Have you ever had to consider trading commissions and fees while trading SIGNIFICANT volume in one market/contract (>10%) and have you ever thought about the impact in your P/L? What do you expect to pay for a round-turn in the miniFDAX compared to your average volume and tick-size ?

Did you read my comments above ? Have you answered my questions ?

Do you seriously know what's about regulation in CFD's, Certificates, Warrants etc ? Do you know anything about DMA for Certificates, Warrents etc on the DAX and EUWAX etc ?

Have you ever considered any advantages/disadvantages for futures and certificates/warrants ... specially overnight ?

As said: I'd never try to convince the non-DMA/CFDs/Certs/Warrants buy side.

So still no valid arguments, except "market regulation" and "non-DMA" ... which btw shows you aren't deeply into it. Otherwise you wouldn't use both arguments ....

Nevermind. Nice weekend.

Useless discussion here.

If you don't accept the other side it is okay.

A professional trader should know what market fits to him.

Up to now, more than a third of your 16 posts in 6 years are here repeating something that everyone already
understood when you wrote it for the first time. Don't you think, that's a little weird, honey?
