So far so good it seems. About MicrosThe micro is not a different style of futures contract from other futures. It simply refers to the contract size. They are smaller. The upside is smaller, downside is smaller, and comms are smaller.Details:It is 1/10th of the regular size contract. It’s a 100 barrel contract (v 1000 barrels).For every dollar move in crude oil, the contract moves $100 ($1000 for the biggie).The tick size is 1 cent. That’s worth $1 ($10 for the big contract). The initial margin is $530. Tips for traders:OK, here are some ideas to get started or think about: Watch the full contract – both charts and DOM. Micro for execution only. The reason being is the big contract will is trading more often (for now). That means levels and other technical readings will be more reliable from the big contract.Work limit orders. There’s no need to pay up on the spread, but if you do it doesn’t matter given $1 per tick. While the market develops however, don’t feel the need to rush your execution. Watch deferred contracts as they develop (for spreading).Make sure your broker has reduced commissions for micros and SPAN margins. Learn More About Scalping and Spreading?Check my courses at MasterClassTrader.com. This market can be used in both the DOM Bootcamp and advanced spread course. Check out the special page for a current bundled deal. Also check out my new Telegram chat group subscription for spreader and scalps. The link is below. It’s a deliberately small group for active traders, all there talk about trades and help each other. Coming up, well next month we have micros in the treasuries, which I think will be fantastic. We’ll talk more about it when they launch.Until then, good trading.GB

This one is for all our DOM MasterClass Students and others interested in the interest rate markets. The CME have just announced a series of new rate contracts. The new contacts are quoted in yield, not the usual price format. That alone is interesting and takes a small complexity out of the trading process. And hot of off the heels of heels of the popular micro equity contracts, these ones will also be micro sized.There are 2yr, 5yr, 10yr and 30yr contract each with a $1 tick size, being 1/10th of a basis point. That makes a DV01 of $10, compares with the current Ultra Bond $345.Like the micro equity contracts, that means good potential to trade spreads or simply scalp the long end without the potential bottom line volatility. They launch mid-August, and we will look at them more then. Hopefully they will be something we will add to the trading kit.If you are new to, or rusty on, Treasury futures, please check out my other podcasts.

One of the biggest and most common mistakes retail traders make is they look at one market in isolation. Or worse – when they look at more than one market, they ignore how these markets can work together. Today we will talk about adding a couple of new things to your watchlist to help you start seeing relationships. Is it easy? Nope, but is it hard? No I don’t think so, but it’s worth it. Ultra futures – we’ll talk about them. It should be a short podcast, but an interesting one if you don’t know about these things. So please have a listen.Podcast references:MasterClassTrader Specials:https://masterclasstrader.com/specials/CME Treasuries Info:https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/why-futures/welcome-to-us-treasury-futures.htmlCannon Trading:https://www.cannontrading.com/
