You can trade the 6E, 125k EUR, for a DT margin of $500, each tick = 0.5 pips = $6.25
you can trade 125k EURUSD for ~$3000 margin, each tick = 0.1 pips = $1.25;
Now I wouldn't trade either, but one seems like a much better deal:
I understand what you are saying but I never really had an issue with how much size/leverage I can use. 20x per $100k is $2 million in size. Thats about 5pips equals 1% which is plenty for me.
I see earning an extra $5 per contract on a tick of profit as another reason to trade the Futures contract.
