  1. why trade mini Crude when you can trade ICE Brent...

    mini Crude:

    low volume
    huge spread...can be .05 to .10 at times!!!
    1/2 tick value as CL

    ICE Brent:

    great volume
    low, tight spread like CL..normallu .01-.02!!
    exact tick value as CL
    DAYTRADE margin...way less than CL

    thoughts?
     
  2. Why trade mini-crude when you could trade NYMEX crude $10 tick.
     
  3. correct, exactly...my point is that ICE Brent has the same tick value at NYMEX Crude...BUT...lower daytrade margin...!!!
