    I am new and very curious about e-mini! What is it and how it works? What are the merits/demerits with emini? Is it a stock option or like any other ordinary stock? Looking at some trading journals in this forum, it appears that one point up or down of emini value is equivalent to a gain or loss of $20. Is that right? Can you short emini at downtick? Where can I get additional information about emini? Thanks in advance.

    go to www.cme.com
    and read all you can, then check out the futures section on this site, and then if you need more info - fire away.
    I started looking at this stuff about a month ago, and reading up on this site and cme, you really learn a lot. Learn a lot before you start trading this thing!!!
    good luck
