Yep, but still that 25,000 euros minimum investment level. Quite the spicy meatball for the private investor. www.easy2trade.com allow you to open with £5K, enough to trade one FTSE, 5 Mini, even a couple of EuroSTOXX contracts on Eurex.
Good point about the DJ EuroSTOXX 50 Future, the average investor perhaps isnt switched on to the grapid growth of this contract.
Trading on fumes before november last year, now its volume is regularly bouncing around the 250-300K level daily. 10 euros a tick, exchange margin per contract only 2200 euros, great liquidity, long trading hours (extended to match the hours of the DAX contract) up to 7pm UK time, rarely any more than a 1 tick spread.
