    The NQ seems to be very quiet. Where are its fans? Are the people shifting to the ES or other futures??

    It's not quiet, it's smooth, makes for easy trading.
  3. Why bother with NQ and all those Globex breakdowns ? :(
    Mini-DOW: 1000$ intraday margin and 2.52$ commission per rt (incl. all fees) :)

    Why does it suddenly become smooth? It was well-known for its volatility. It seems the behaviour of each instrument can change from time to time. No method can be used forever!

  5. I think the biggest reason is LIQUIDITY...give the YM some time and liquidity should be fine. However, keep in mind that the low YM commissions are temporary.
  6. Kind of happens when the instrument isn't traded by institutions and loses 70% of its value - viz natural gas etc etc
