Hi Joe and Andy,
im Mario from Italy. As first im sorry for my language.
I m an young spread trader who dreams to become an old trader;
I trade only spread from a few months after six month of paper trading.
So ive read everythink you wrote about spread trading.
I love your strategy and its so easy to understand what you two think about spread, cause you are very competents persons.
I have promise myself to destine next profit to my training and so next year i ll subcribe the traders notebook.
Now i want to ask you if is it possible to trade also mini spread, cause i have listening that the volume of mini s could be low and so could be hard to get out from the trade when you want.
Thank you for the answer and i wish both of you a merry cristhmas and all the best for the new year.
Mario

Hi Mario,

I am glad you are interested into spread trading. I think spread trading is something EVERY trader should have a look into.

Regarding minis and micros: There are many mini and micro markets you can use for spread trading. The only problem is, you have to use the front month whenever you trade a mini or micro contract. While also back months in the normal futures contracts are often liquid enough for spread trading, this is not the case with the minis and micros.

This means, whenever you want to trade a calendar spread, you should use the normal futures contracts (calendar spreads are usually low risk) and whenever you are looking into an inter-market spread you should trade the mini or micros in the front month.

In any case: always check the volume and check the bid/ask spread before entering a trade.

All the best,
Andy

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.
