Hi guys and ladies, I've become addicted to the Micro ES and NQ. It happened fast. I'm doing 50 to 150 R/T's per day. I'm a former floor trader, and was on the CBOT and CBOE for almost 30 years. My style back then was to always have a core positional trade on while constantly scalping the paper that came into the pits I was in. I spent a great many years in the OEX pit on the CBOE, which was a scalpers paradise on many, if not most days. One could move 1000 puts or calls with no more than 3 contra names on a ticket. Man, the markets were deep in that pit. I recently came out of retirement because the action in the markets was too hard to ignore. That said, while I love trading mini's, the algo spikes and sweeps are tough to swallow for an old guy. When the Micros arrived, it was like a dream come true for me. I can make a ton of trades (small size) and never risk too much. Of course, the $ rewards are much smaller as well. That said, these Micros are working for me. At my age, taking on big risk makes no sense. I also choose scalping versus positional trading so that I can have plenty of free time for outside activities. My question is, what's the lowest round turn rate you've seen for the Micro ES & NQ? I thought I was paying 84 cents a round turn, according to my statements, but my broker informed me today that this was a mistake, and my actual rate will be 1.14 per R/T. I get it, they have to make a living too, no problem there. However, with the number of trades I make on busy days, over the course of time it adds up, fast. Unlike the floor, where my clearing firm always capped fees after I reached a certain volume threshold, the e-brokers don't. I see AMP offering 74-78 cents per R/T, can anyone beat that? Please feel free to PM me if you don't want to share details on the forum. My lips are sealed, for real. For the record, I really enjoy working with my current broker. He's a good dude, and the company is transparent, with great customer service. The commission kerfuffle came to light after I called him today and inquired why my statements were showing a lower rate than I recall him quoting me over the phone. I guess his firm was not hands on when it came to checking statements for commission accuracy? So I make the call, and for my honesty, I get rewarded with a 30 cent per R/T higher rate. LOL Like I said, he's a good dude and I love the firm, but I don't like to over pay by a large percentage. Thanks for any response in advance. Good trading to all. Jack PS I don't post often, but I really enjoy this forum a ton. There are a lot of really sharp people here. I tried a few other forums, uhhh nope, they aren't even close to ET.
