Highest volume/lowest slippage futures

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by frostengine, Jun 30, 2011.

  1. What are the best futures for day trading? Are ES and CL the only two viable options as far as daily volume?
  2. Eight


    NQ's are ok.
  3. actually Es slipagge is not so good compared to others, TF and CL offers lowers spreads and enough volume to trade.

    YM may be also an alternative to ES if you're trading less than 5-7 contracts pers side.
  4. Slippage on the es? Less slippage and lower spreads on the cl and tf? What broker are you using. That statement is ludicrous!!!!!

  5. TY, I mean Ten Year notes, not thank you, lol.
  6. anything trading 50k + volume a day has plenty of volume to get in and out with 1-5 lots with little slippage.
