Hi Charly,

I'd say it depends on how often you want to get in and out of these markets. If you want to keep your positions for weeks it shouldn't be an issue, but if you plan to get in and out of trades multiple times a week you might be in trouble. Just look at the orderbook...it's not too crowded even during regular trading hours.

I personally would use limit-orders (or stop-limit) to trade these, otherwise you will get too much slippage.

Happy Trading!

Marco

Hi Charlie,

I would not dare using them for daytrading.

In CME website you can see that for almost all of them there is low daily volume but a relatively high open interest.
Probably they are used for position trading or for spread trading.

Regards
Jean

Derivative transactions, including futures, are complex and carry a high degree of risk. They are intended for sophisticated investors and are not suitable for everyone. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results, and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results. For more information, see the Risk Disclosure Statement for Futures and Options.
