Which Dow Futures? YM, DD, DJ?

  1. There are three sizes of Dow contracts. Everyone seems to be trading the YM, so I have a stupid question. Why on earth did they come out with a "jumbo" $25 contract when someone could just as easily buy 5 "YM's".

    Or two of the $10 dow contracts.

    Why would the CBOT have three products when YM's are enough?

    Ever heard of commissions?
