    That's already long overdue, especially on the NQ. Let's see what happens when the Dow e-mini hits > 100k volume:p

    Doesn't it tell you the big guys figure that's where a lot of small players have gone and they are going to jerk the minis around and take the little guys money.
  6. Tuesday, May 20th, the CBOT mini-sized Dow again set a new daily record volume of 54,639 contracts traded. In addition, a daily Dow Complex open interest record was also set.

    Won't be long before 100k is hit... :cool:
  7. Nobody is gonna take your money if you dont give it. You want smaller spread go trade stocks, see how much you will make there.
  8. Is it really about the spread? I don't know anyone that claims they are 'making the spread' in the E-mini, except for the arbs.

    And as far as gaming the little guy, from where I sit, there are very sophisticated routines being used to bag as many as possible before the real moves kick in.

    Believe it.

    Well, since it was pretty much a see saw day, one would expect the volume/point ratio to be above normal. Secondly, it says to me that buyers and sellers were equally motivated.
