    What's the difference between the two contracts KT and KC, besides size, and why are they traded on two different exchanges?

    Btw, is there a "C" mini traded electronically?
  2. the order flow and volume is on NYBOT

    there is no mini C ( do you mean a mini coffee ? )

    ps beware of the stupid prop firms and MM who try to bully

    all the small specs

    better stick to mini forex or e mini gold or silver

    the vols and spikes in the softs and ags and other commodities

    have probably caused a TON of slippage to all whom try to

    play against the "dark side"

    Yeah, mean a mini coffee; currently contemplating trading the regular, KC. Was just wondering who uses the Nymex contract and why?
  4. Mini C would be mini corn.
    coffee needs a liquid mini contract...

    I guess about 10 years ago I recall seeing some mini coffee contract getting hyped; I thought it was called a C as in the class of coffee. Not sure what happened to it. Or I was dreaming.

    NYBOT is the action where the softs are. NYMEX volume for the softs is basically 0. NYMEX introduced the soft contracts only a few years ago, and it's not catching on.

    NYBOT is now The ICE!
