  1. $1,000.00 to $10,000 Futures Trading Challenge

    Could you or have you taken a $1,000.00 futures account to $10,000?

    What futures contracts (options) would you trade?

    *You can use $300.00 emini daytrade margins (ES, NQ, YM)
    *Corn $800 daytrade margins
    *10 year $400 daytrade
    *Euro Bund 300 Euros daytrade

    Oh yea, no, my account is not $1,000.00...BUT...just wondering who could and who has done this...any real comments, feedback?
  2. just wondering why you used $1000.00 to $10000 instead of $1000 to $10,000. Is few pennies that important to you?
  3. for real...no comment...hmmm...
  4. Took $3,000 to $10,000 when I first started trading and then took that $10,000 to just under $100,000 as of right now.
  5. Please don't take this the wrong way as I mean no harm but you seem to be wandering in circles completely lost as to what you should trade and-or how.

  6. I'd need to start with $1500. A conservative timeframe would be 10 weeks. With the right market...4-5 weeks. NQ
  7. Yes. Why do people like to chain "etc." so much?
  8. No, cuz a $1000 account isn't enough to Martingale my way out of losing trades :D

    How many contracts can you buy with $1000 anyway?
  9. wow...very impressed...what were you trading at that $3,000 level?
  10. what proven method would you use to achieve that?
