Differences between Micro / Mini contracts Vs Normal

Post by trending3029 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 5:06 pm

Hi,
I am quite new to Futures and I had a specific query.
What is the difference between Micro / Mini contract Vs Normal contract excluding size? i.e what are the price differences between OHLC on a normal contract Vs Mini / Micro contract.

regards

There are several ways you can do some research on your own. Initially, you should start with the CME's site, checking out things such as contract specs, etc...

Then, I would suggest regularly tracking minis (and micros) versus their fullsized brothers using some form of data (CSI, Pinnacle, Barchart, FutureSource, etc...). You should pay a good bit of attention to things like V and OI, not just OHLC.

Lastly, checking with your broker may not be a bad idea as well
