Why do you think he trades the mini instead of the CL contract?

Think about that for just a second before posting the question and you could probably answer it for yourself.

Well it's pretty freaking obvious why someone would trade the mini over the CL isn't it?

The volume is much greater on CL and so, that leaves only one reason.............lower margin/capital requirements.

My point is you know full well why he trades the mini versus CL, so why ask the question?

If you already know the answer, then what is there to gain by asking?
