More subs using e-mini or micro?


I’d like your opinion on what would get better relationship subscribers/money: a strategy trading standard e-mini or a strategy trading micro e-mini?

Let’s say that the return is the same on both cases, around 30%, being the leverage something in between 2 or 3. Are there more people in C2 with $60,000 to invest for one contract, or are there more people to invest $6,000 for one e-micro contract?

A subscriber with $6,000 to invest will not want to pay $100 for a strategy, something around $10 would be more reasonable. But then the trader would need 10 times more subscribers.

So, what’s more probable/reasonable; get 20 subscribers paying $100 and investing $60,000 or 200 subscribers paying $10 and investing $6,000? Or something in between?


If you trade e-micros people can scale up/down as they please. Probably makes more sense.
Charge whatever you like.

Focus less on fees and more on having a good system/track record. The money will always follow if you have that, regardless of what you charge.


I understand that it is needed to focus on having a good trading. But I don’t think that is true that the money will follow, regardless of price.

If the majority of the people in C2 invest (for example) around $10,000, it doesn’t make sense to make a strategy that cost $100. I’d need to make a strategy that cost $20 to get more subs, I guess. Also, with micro e-mini people with more money would need to scale too much, and would be less cost effective for them.

I think that there should be a “sweet spot” of the relationship between the type of people here, and the strategy cost.


Admin - what will C2 charge for the commission for the micro contract??
