Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

How is official start of Dax Mini?


Today officially started the Dax Mini on Eurex.
The first volumes look promising: around 1000 contracts per 30 minute since the opening.
Dax future itself had very good volumes too - so more trade volume in total is to note.

Hoping that things will continue like that and volumes will get higher.
As I can not see the CFD volumes one can only guess that a good bunch of CFD traders now
are on the Dax Mini.

Good stuff. I would love to see how my stuff would play out on mini too, but CQG/AMP still don't have it. Could you post a screen shot with say 30 sec bars around the 9 AM so we have a little bit before and after? Thanks.

Thanks. I will wait for a couple of months perhaps, but it makes sense to intraday swing trading to switch to mini dax already, because with larger stops and smaller position it should be fine, esp as one hardly would trade on premarket swings anyway

Points since week 2: 334
