What another poor day for active scalping locals, 2 good moves during the day, then just stuck in a 10/15 tick range, on no volume at all. 71% of the volume was conducted in 20 minutes ( both during the movement periods). As soon as 5 pm ( GMT ) arrives the market just totally dies, and after such time is not even trading 20k contracts an hour. 4k contracts have traded in the last 45 minutes!!!!!!!! Total Dogshit market to try to actively scalp. My buddy has just been offered a deal at a prop shop as a "Trainee", and they expect him to trade 1 lots initially ( understandable) as well as overcoming the DESK fee of approx Â£2k a month,splits, commissions and to pay himself a salary on 1 lots, I have advised him strongly against it. Its ok for the guys who started a maybe 5-10 years ago, but these newbies haven't got a hope in hell actively scalping EUREX ( point and click) products on 1 lots , it would be a challenge alone just to cover the desk fee. Feel sorry for the newbies being recruited on this deal/basis.
