Hi, I would say, forget this strategy as soon as possible, doesn't make sense. Where is your stop loss?

Regarding the price, I guess you want to trade the Eurostoxx50? 1 tick = 10.-- minus commissions = i.e. 4.-- = profit 6.-- 9times winner = 54.-- 1 loss i.e. 10ticks = - 104.--

How should this work?

Thanks for your answer, I really want to trade in eurex

The problem here is not only Stop loss but there aslo Spraed and the execution order,
I am a beginner in this trading contracte futures and I do not know if the trade is open at a loss or open at zero, I mean, is there a spread

The Eurostoxx50 is one of the most liquid instruments worldwide, the spread between bid and ask is always 1 tick.

Of course! Futures are not CFD's, if u enter with a Limit Order, u get this price or better.

Whether you can or not, just forget about it. It's more likely a losing strategy!

No one can tell you if you can do something or not until you try it yourself.

most likely this simple strategy already get automated somewhere, so can your strategy be executed faster than somebody else strategy is the real question.
