Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


In a nutshell, you would have two charts. One would follow the mini contract and one would follow the micro. You'd do your analysis/whatever you do to make decisions on the mini but take your trades on the micro contract. They follow each other almost exactly but the micro has far less liquidity so there will be gaps in the prints. You would probably also have to make extensive use of limit orders due to the liquidity issue as well. You can get slipped a lot using stops and market orders on the micro.

@tturner86 had a pretty extensive journal trading the m6e micro euro.

M6E is the micro Euro and MGC is micro gold. Those I believe are the most liquid. There isn't a micro S&P yet but supposedly it's "coming". I think I recently saw a thread in the forums mentioning the S&P micro recently.
