    Well, this is still in the planning stages, but I will wait and see what the liquidity on the $5 multiplier is like.

    I really prefer the dow, but I will start NQ/ES papertrading and see how that goes.

    Thanks all.

  2. I don't know if it is still the case, but sometimes the bid-ask spread would be 50 or 100 points on ACE during the day trading session. Of course, if you put a reasonable price in a floor trader would hit you, but if you are using stops you would get slaughtered. Trading thin contracts with a fully automated system can be a recipe for disaster - be careful.
