    IB allows trading the 3 Small futures. Symbols are: 75SME, FXSME
    and PRESME. IB shows today's 75SME July volume at just over 1k.
    When Small Exchange has a crude contract, I will look at it.

    I presume your intention is to learn how to trade.

    do not think trading illiquid futures / stocks on small exchange will help improve your trading skills. In fact, it could be detrimental and discouraging.
    There are thousands and thousands of illiquid futures / stocks in this world.

    many people trade CME products due to its low data fee and high liquidity.

  9. I was just looking at the volumes for the small exchange.

    Uh oh. Looks like they are not getting any lift-off.

    Volumes for the few products launched so far are in the range of like 50-300 for the day.

    Could it be becasue the products are ODD BALL meaning these are not composed of anything that exists in same composition anywhere else! so small size etc great a but what is the point?
    I stand to be corrected though in above assumption
