Where is the volume?

  1. I used to trade futures and left to trade stocks for awhile and now I'm looking back at futures...am I missing something? I think I read that the ES has volume around 12,000-15,000 these days...didn't it like have volume in the millions? Am I looking at something wrong?

    The average daily trading volume of ES in 2011 was 2.46MM contracts!
  3. Are you looking at the right contract?
  4. The trading session began at 5 PM central time, less than an hour ago. What do you expect volume to be?

    Maybe you should stick to stocks.
