    One point of Nasdaq E-mini = $20.
    One tick for Naz m-mini is 0.5 point, for S&P e-mini it's 0.25 point.

  2. So for each tick (half point) in the Nasdaq E-mini it is $10.

    What would each tick be worth in the full Naz 100? And is the
    contract 5x the size of the E-mini?

    A point in the full Naz contract is worth $100, so yes, its 5 times the e-mini version. The minimum tick size for the full contract is .05 Naz points or $5.

  4. I bet it cost a bundle to buy just one contract of the full Naz

    Thanks for the answers everybody!

    The margin for a full Naz contract is currently $20,625, roughly 5 times the margin for the mini.

  6. If I ever trade index futures, I think I will start with the
    e-mini. A little bit cheaper..
