After Hours Mini-Gold

  1. Why do I trade this? I've been stuck in a lousy 1 point short for the past hour and a half. This is seriously like watching paint dry.

    Anyone else trading this snooze fest right now?
  2. why are you even trading the miniGold?...takes a huge move to even make any $$$...also, are you ready margin wise to hold overnight or will you liquidate here soon?
  3. When I decided I wanted to try my hand at futures (been trading stocks for about 2 years prior), I wanted to go with something I understood in the most inexpensive way possible. In that order. Mini Gold seemed like my best option.

    And of course I covered about 5 minutes after making this thread..
  4. was this your first futures trade? and first minigold trade?...what did you net?
  5. No, I've been at it for about a week and a half now. Net on this trade after commissions was $26.00

    If you are going to trade in the middle of the night, you are better off with EC, which has a semi liquid 1/2 sized contract as well.
  7. What is /EC contract?
  8. did you ever get back into trading the miniGold?
