    The mini seems to have 10 times less liquidity than the full CME Euro FX. Is anyone trading the e-mini or is it pretty much a dead cat?

    I'm not now but have in the past. During the evening (last time I looked) it is pretty thin. During the morning hours NY time it's probably deep enough for small lot trades.
     
  3. Why don't you look at the Time & Sales? There's often 100+ lots going off - so how much do you want to trade at one go? If you are going to trade anything on a reasonable scale you need to be able to answer questions about liquidity for yourself.
     
  4. Why dont you just trade the regular Euro-Fx. I trade it and its deep and moves good. Just an idea...
