    That's why I love IB, though personally I don't prefer the mini grains, I do prefer the attitude of making as many products available as possible.

    so that you can pay more commissions. :D
  10. MINIS could be nice for some swing trades, portfolio hedges, etc.

    @ $1,000 per limit day, the full size contract is a bit thick for many retail accounts, especially if you want to trade a multiple contract position on a swing basis and scale out.

    but yes - for scalping, the commissions are gonna be too much methinx.
