Another option is to consider the Mini Nikkei contract. It trades on the Osaka exchange (OSE). This is *not* the low liquidity contract that trades on CME. It routinely trades volume comparable to...

A bit off-topic, but, anyone who has $500 margin on an emini should call your broker and immediately have them raise it to something sensible like $2000 at a minimum, at least for your own protection...

It's so funny that you posted this. As I opened the chart today I saw that the Dec contract was very thin and quickly realized that the Jan had taken over (250K vol compared to 120K or something). As...

Swing trade in CL

Last night I took a long in CL at 62.56, about 5 ticks from the very low. It took me a couple of tries so I'm down 25 ticks, but in the money 75 ticks as we speak. I think a bounce of 500 ticks is...

I see you use SC. There is a "position in queue" estimator, a-la the good ol' TT DOM, that has in my experience been very accurate. You should use it if you don't already.

In general, the stop goes at the price where the market would have to trade to invalidate your trade idea.
