Does anyone have any views on Orange juice / lumber and pork bellies .. these markets obviously have liquidity issues .. also things like oats and rough rice .. some of these markets show great trending tendancies but are traded on volumes less than 500
I am at present a 1 lot trader where I can be .. Obviously a 1 lot order wont move a market but the slippage can still be 1 % plus in terms of price from signal to entry..
Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts

Thanks

I stopped trading lumber after i experienced a couple of thousand dollars of slippage per contract. Rice is normally ok and oats isnt terrible.
