I has been reading posts and looking for comments about Dow 30 Futures.
I'm starting in trading with Dow 30 Futures but looks like nobody trade Dow 30 Futures.
I just can find info about S&P 500

Any advise about my decision trading Dow 30?
Why everybody just trade S&P 500?

Thanks in advance.

The reasoning is quite simple:

The notional value of both contracts is nearly the same:
~$100000 (YM) vs ~$112000 (ES)

But liquidity of the YM is abysmal compared with the ES:
ES currently ranks nr 1 of all futures; the YM in contrast is currently worse than rank 20 of all futures.
