Trading Treasury Futures

  1. Is any one here trading bond futures like ZN and ZB. I am mainly interested to know how easy it is to scalp them, i.e. ZB moves in 1/32 that will give one $31.25 per tick as I understand. How liquid is it during normal hours and during off hours.

    The ZN is very liquid with average daily trading volume of around 438,000 contracts. I don't trade the ZN right now so I couldn't tell you about scalping.

    The ZB trading volume is around 177,000 contract per day.
