    Hi people,

    I'm getting ready to switch to trading on the European timeframe, so I was wondering if anyone can help me identifying the most liquid electronic European futures contracts to trade? I know about the Dax.

    TIA!

    thanks Nick, that was a big help! Although it did leave me a bit confused. I was told that the Dax is one of the best contracts to trade. From that page, however, it seems as if it's actually one of the more ILliquid contracts!

    illiquid 2/300,000 contracts per day?

    or the BUND 1,500,000/2,000,000 contracts per day?

    IMHO the Bund is the way to go. Huge liquidity, and you get some very nice moves. Not as much noise/bs as you get in the equity indexes.

    This depends on your style...
    DAX is NQ on steroids.. :D

    I suggest starting with other contracts
    Eurostoxx , Bund, Schatz, Euribor
