    Hey you all :)

    The small Osaka Nikkei 225 Futures (500 yen tick value) seems to be pretty liquid, daily volume similar to ES and FESX.

    Do you know how it is with the large Nikkei 225 contract (10,000 yen tick value) ? Is there at least some volume, can it be traded actively ?

    Thank you and have a nice evening,

    Ok, I just checked it myself... 50,000 to 100,000 contracts traded per day.

    The big N225 futures (OSE) has plenty of liquidity. The tick is about $99

  4. As comagnum said, liquidity is not a problem. The MM's keep the spread to 1 tick. I've traded both and the Mini is considerably more active and it is so much easier to get filled.
