Micro E-mini Futures launch!

June 13, 2019

“Somebody must come in… We want them to play here!”

“CHICAGOMay 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, announced the successful launch of its new Micro E-mini futures on the S&P 500, Nasdaq-100, Russell 2000 and Dow Jones Industrial Average indexes, which became available for trading today.”

It’s great to have such a small tradable ES future. It makes it easier to adjust positions and it leads us to much more effective money management strategies.

Let me ask an easy question: what’s happened last year (December 2017) after Bitcoin futures were introduced in the CME board? Well, when big amounts of new liquidity comes in a market the potential volatility increases dramatically.

If there’s a bubble, the bubble bursts!

Let me ask another question: what’s happened on September 1997 when the E-mini futures were created? Well, there wasn’t a bubble.

Smaller futures contracts mean that many small traders can now affort to enter the market, both long or short. They are always doing the wrong thing. Buying greed and selling fear. On the contrary, big hands, institutional traders and investors, do the right thing.

When small traders came in late 1997, they helped to create the Dot-Com Bubble, because we were not in a bubble.

In late 2017, during the last Cryptos markets big bubble, big hands coming in recognised the too big bubble and made it burst shorting futures. The panic started and small cryptos traders started to sell their cryptos for what it has shown to be something like a 90% bear market in cryptos.

What’s happening now with the launch of the new Micro Mini Futures contract? Where are the big hands in the stock market? They’re already long since 2009. The day of the announce is very close to the all time stock market highs. They have been in the market for more than 10 years now. And they are looking to get out of it. Somebody else (small traders) will be long for the next big bear market coming.

Just another story. Let’s see the future”s” markets!
