Sentiment: long on metals Most interested in mini silver futures. Never traded futures of any kind before Need a broker who doesn't mind a lot of hand holding to get me started. I'm leaning toward Etrade since there is a local office in my area. Would appreciate comments on the merits of a long position vs. day trading. I've heard that 95% of day traders eventually lose their entire stake. Not very encouraging. Got some SLW stock and a little bit of physical silver. Just looking for some leverage on some risk capital....but I don't want to be stupid and flush the cash down the toilet with newbie mistakes. Comments....thoughts....???
