SSF volume for scalping - getting any better?

Discussion in 'Financial Futures' started by 50 cent, Feb 28, 2003.

  1. Trading SSF with nice leverage and no uptick rule... sounds good to me. Is the volume these days already good enough for scalping, I mean scalping for 10c - 15c profit on 1000 shares, which means 10 contracts?

    volume does not matter for ssf's, at least not right now. mm's put up a two sided market and you can scalp off of this. you will have to beat the spread though and ssf's do not move tick 4 tick with the underlying. so yes you can scalp for dimes but it is not as easy (profitable) as with the underlying.
