What are the Most Liquid Electronically Traded Futures

  1. Hello,

    I'm looking for the most liquid electronically traded futures.

    Can anyone please provide a list of such instruments?

    The e-mini S&P futures is the obvious candidates.

    Are there any others?

    What I mean by liquid is that one where:

    + Tight spreads - a few ticks wide at most

    + If you stop order gets hit, you get filled not too far away from the current bid-ask (under most circumstances of course)

    + Small market orders (less than 10 contracts) won't move the price.

    + Enough volume such that a 2 minute intraday chart doesn't have gaps.

    By electronically traded I mean instructments that can be traded through an online broker, such as Interactive Brokers.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

  2. Definitely the emini s&p is a good liquid market. Most e platforms now get you fills in 2 seconds.
