MarketDelta Cloud is excited to announce Asia’s Most Liquid Futures Contract (Mini-Nikkei 225) is now available for Live Trading.
Mini-Nikkei 225 is the most liquid equity index futures contracts in Asia. The notional value of one contract is 100 times the value of the Nikkei 225. It is a tenth of the contract size of Nikkei 225 Large Contracts.
The daily trading volume of the mini-Nikkei 225 is very close to the ES (Emini SP500) and the liquidity is very good as well.
Contact your broker and ask them to enable your live account for the mini-Nikkei 225 which trades on the Osaka Exchange (JPX).
MD Cloud Symbol: MJNK (For example – MJNKM6)
Trading Hours: Open 7pm CST (Chicago) – Closes 1:10am CST (Chicago)
Tick Value: 1 Tick = 500 YEN or approx. $4.56 USD at today’s exchange rate.
The PnL shown in MD Cloud is YEN. So you would need to do the conversion to understand how many dollars your profit or loss would be. For instance, a realized PnL of 25000 Yen would be $228 USD at today’s rate.
Ways to Trade
Because this contract is based in Japan, its primary session is during the Asian open. That is evening hours here in the US, so anyone who works a full day could come home, have dinner, and then trade the primary session of the Nikkei 225 for a couple of hours during its busiest time.
Another way to trade it would be alongside Europe or the US morning session as a hedge or simple a correlated market to the other primary stock index futures.
This really looks like a great contact to trade with all the liquidity and price swings it offers. Good Trading!

DOM triggered stop orders are synthetic orders which work on the server and monitor the inside market (best bid and best ask) and only let your stop be triggered if a certain quantity available is left to trade. This prevents you from so easily “being stopped out” when just a few contracts trade at the stop price.
Instead, a certain threshold is set so that the market can trade at your stop price but won’t be triggered until the quantity remaining decreases to a value you set.
MarketDelta Cloud includes this functionality for free in its online futures trading platform. Get a demo of it at cloud.marketdelta.com. To learn more about the specific of DOM Triggered Stops, read on or watch this video.
The stop order is only activated if the Inside Market Threshold is met. The Inside Market Threshold is the value you set for bid or ask quantity of the inside market. When the inside market is less than or equal to the Inside Market Threshold the stop order will be triggered.
So there are 2 parameters to set for DTSP. The distance in ticks the stop order gets placed and the inside market DOM threshold. Ex. The Stop amount is 10 and the amount in parenthesis is 100. This would submit the DSTP order 10 ticks from entry AND then require the inside market (best bid or best ask) become a value less than 100. DOM triggered stops are fully synthetic and supported on all Exchanges.
DSTP – DOM Triggered Stop – DOM triggered stop orders behave like a stop order but do not trigger until the bid or ask quantity is less than or equal to the Inside Market Threshold which you set. So there are 2 parameters to set for DTSP. The distance in ticks the stop order gets place and the inside market DOM threshold. Ex. The Stop amount is 10 and the amount in parenthesis is 100. This would submit the DSTP order 10 ticks from entry AND then require the inside market (best bid or best ask) become a value less than 100. DOM triggered stops are fully synthetic and supported on all Exchanges.
DTSTP – DOM Triggered Trailing Stop – The same in all respects to DSTP orders but these also have a trailing component which behaves exactly like the TSTP order.

We just pushed out an awesome update to MarketDelta Cloud. Here is a short list of the primary new features and enhancements.
Yesterday I had the privilege of being interviewed by Anthony Crudele, host of FuturesRadio. FuturesRadio is a podcast focused on the futures industry. Listen as I tell the brief story behind MarketDelta, how the footprint chart came about and a unique way to apply it, and then where I see technology leading traders over the next few years.
This week Eurex Group launched a mini-Dax futures contract that is 1/5th the size of the “big” Dax (FDAX) contract. We expect this contract to catch on very well with retail traders because of the volatility it offers and the smaller contract size resulting in less margin required to trade it.
Eurex has registered market makers that are providing liquidity and judging by the depth of market from MarketDelta Cloud it already has people trading it. Contact your broker to get enabled to trade the mini-Dax!
The Edge trader education and training program has grown so exponentially that we created additional Tracks.
For example, Track 4 has 35 sixty to ninety minute coaching sessions. These classes are done live each week, and then uploaded into Track 4 for convenient access.
Track 5 has dozens and dozens of 2 minute clips of distinct trading set ups. In here, we SHOW you what to look for instead of just telling you.
Finally Track 6, is a bonus team room. This team room is unlike anything in the educational space. We connect Edge members to each other in a “virtual office” of like minded traders.

Happy Monday! We pushed live a bunch of behind the scenes improvements as well as a few user interface updates. One of the most notable when it comes to users requests is that average price is now displayed.
DOM (Depth of Market)
When you establish a position we now market the average price of that position on the price scale in the DOM with a golden yellow price highlight. As you add to or reduce your open position the average price will change.
By default, the last price (gray highlight) will be “on top” of the average position highlight if they are the same price.
Trading Order Tabs
Nestled between the Position and Realized P/L columns, we have added the Avg Px column which shows the average price of your open position.
