As we all know, the the contract sizes of the mini indexes are one-fifth the size of their larger counterparts. However, the ES tick size is only half that of the large SP contract ($12.50 vs $25). On the other hand, NQ's tick size is exactly proportionate to that of the larger contract, in that its tick size is one-fifth the size of that of the large contract ($5 vs $25). The mini Russell falls somewhere in between at $10 vs $25, but is almost as disproportionate as ES. (As an aside, the mini Dow's tick size is proportionate to that of the large contract.) So the question is, would you like to see ES with a $5 tick size? Personally, I would like to see a $5 tick size so that there is no incongruity with the large contract. (Perhaps that is one of the reasons that I principally trade NQ.) Recently, I spoke with a CME representative, whose name I do not recall. He said that there are no plans to change ES's tick size, certainly not in 2008. For what it's worth, he said that if enough people wanted it, then the matter would be considered more seriously. Therefore, if you agree with me, then perhaps you might wish to similarly voice your sentiments to the CME. In any event, please vote in this poll to satisfy my curiosity. I know the topic has been raised before in other threads, but I don't believe a poll was ever conducted. Please feel free to add any comments you may have. Thanks for participating.
