With CME looking like it has lost the ER2. They need to get volume and liquidity in EMD up. EMD has about 80% of the daily range of ER2 and trades the same $10 dollar per 0.1 tick. I like Globex as a trading platform and perhaps the ICE electronic platform is just as good, but i notice it supports less native order types than Globex. The volume and liquidity in EMD needs to triple (atleast) to make it a viable alternative to ER2. This could easily happen if enough day traders move from ER2 to EMD.
