NQ & ES are good.
NG/CL are good too.
ZB is the best.
I never traded future option. I tried it in my paper account. the good thing is 24hrs open, you buy options any time you want.
another plus is: there is no margin requirement. so you can hold and wait if tempriraly against you, until you are protibale.
if big move is brewing, future option is great, since you do not need stop loss, ignore little (still large) adversay movement. easily doubled or tripled. if you caught crude from 110 to 77 recently or 77 to 95+, very good.
I think it is good, if you have a big view about the direction. buy early as possible as you can.
future options are very suitable for weekly/monthly timeframe. not several days, may be weeks and months.
have a good vision, see things several weeks ahead.
the minus is the volume is too thin, and the spread is large. if you want to buy it, maybe immediately red.
