Following are the most frequently asked questions by traders/clients about our Emini Futures Trading service:
1. What is the Emini S&P 500 Futures contact? The Emini S&P 500 Futures contract (ES) is one-fifth the size of the standard S&P 500 Futures contract (SPX), with 50 units per contract. Emini Contract Size = $50 x S&P 500 Index. So each point of gain in the Emini Futures translates to $50 gain. The advantage of trading Emini contracts include liquidity and lower cost per contract. Emini futures are available on a wide range of indexes such as the Nasdaq 100, Dow, S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and Russell 2000. The Emini S&P 500 futures contract is traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME Globex system). So when we say Emini Futures, we are referring to Emini S&P 500 Futures.

You can trades multiple contracts to increase your profits.
5. How many contracts should I trade with?
It depends on your trading capital. As a thumb-rule, we never trade Emini Futures with more than 50% of our trading capital. So at least 50% of our trading capital stays away from Futures Trading, in Cash or Money Market Funds, or Index ETFs (SPDR). The 50% trading at work is enough to generate the necessary profits to grow. Rangebound markets are good for trading with more volume. After the S&P500 has made large moves on upside or downside, we have to be more cautious because reversals are likely.
6. What is your Emini Futures Trading strategy? We trade the Emini Futures with price targets, which may come the same day, or typically after 2-3 days. We are Not doing intraday trading, so we are not looking to close our position just because the day is over. We aim to trade for about 10-20 points per trade, and we trade with the market direction in most cases, and we try to buy in deeply oversold markets, while others are still worried or unsure. Such trades give 30-50 points by the time market sentiment becomes positive. So we do a mix of direction trading and contra trading. It depends of the sequence of events that has led to the current price. We prefer to take a few S&P points in each trade, which adds by the end of a month. As you probably know, “Double your money in 100 days” kind of trading schemes rarely work, and there is always a big risk with such trading schemes of losing the entire trading capital. We like the S&P 500. It is the most reliable equity investment in the world. The summary of our Emini futures trading strategy is that we offer our capital on sharp corrections and take profits after large market upmove.
7. Any special package for large traders?
Yes, the futures trading strategy is different when you can hold 10+ contracts for 2-3 weeks because it enables deep discount buying during panic days and allows the partial profit booking on sudden market jumps. Large traders can aim to make 50 points per month per contract on annualized basis, or 600 points per contract per year!
8. Do you work with any funds or large traders?
Yes, we have worked with a variety of traders and funds. Everyone is looking for profits but those who have modest expectations seem to be the consistent winners in most cases. Going forward in 2016, we expect to work with more traders and funds, who can trade with 20+ contracts ongoing basis.
9. How much capital is needed to trade S&P 500 Emini Futures? The minimum margin to trade one S&P 500 Emini futures contract intraday is about $600, and you need about $5000 to open a futures account with most brokerages. We often carry positions overnight till the target or stop loss is hit. So you should plan for a fully funded trading account. Some traders trade intraday using our inputs till the target/stop is hit. You don’t need any special system to trade with our inputs. If you can enter orders on a web-based system, that is enough. We use limit orders on most of the trades, so please be ready to trade with limit orders. You are welcome to trade with multiple contracts, but you need to inform us how many contracts you are trading with so that we can plan your trades. The Emini Futures trading strategy is different when multiple contracts, say 10-20 contracts are traded.
