I agree with you. Short term trends in future have a very bad R:R plus has incredible noise/chop times. Most traders cannot SIT ON THEIR HANDS during these periods.
Said that - I believe Futurs trading is not for small trader with even 30K in the a/c. its just not.
Trading with stops will delay the demise...no stops will give these a/c margin calls almost every day.
PS: I don't like that you always post ur QUOTE in all threads. But I am sure you don't care and neither should anyone else.
