All the oppurtunity for new traders is in ES.

I base this on the fact that not only crazy traders like me, but also sane thinking traders all agree ES is a thing of the past.

So just going contrarian on you, when that many people all agree, they are probably all wrong.

I don't know how you would do it, but if you try to do it the way we did it it probably won't work.

But for somebody whose brain has not yet been polluted and can wade through a ton of negativity, I bet there is an opportunity there for someone who thinks and see's things differently.

now I'm just waiting for the post, "I don't know what you are talking about. I've been trading nothing but ES for the last five years and I'm making a killing."

i agree, the retail folks who start out . since its a zero sum game. someone has to loose to pay the bills for all those HFT trading desks

it seems to be a loosing strategy for most.

where is the edge.. sadly there is none.. hence trading itself. in the Long run is a big enigma.. there will be folks who will post.
" you dont get it ? do you.?

Oldtime, can you educate me please? Why do people think ES is a thing of the past?
