The Russell is known as the day traders market, and for good reason.
Once a member of the e-mini family on the CBOT, this is now traded electronically on ICE and it still has consistent volume, lots of great patterns, and consistency in our daily trading results.
One of the best things about the Russell is that you can trade this on any timeframe. Use our scalping method on a 4-range chart and grab ticks out of the market all day long, or look for swing trades on the 34-range charts for much longer trades and much larger profits.
Many traders that like the e-mini es will find that the Russell is a much more active market, and gives you a lot more patterns and trading opportunities than other stock index futures markets.
We see 15 trading opportunities each day on the Russell, so come join us in the trade room and see why
