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

This week had two trades:

one positive +7 points
one negative (SL) -30 points
weekly result -23 points

Points since week 2: 334

the negative trade based on the
wrong rule while there was a rule
conflict. (now cleared).
