  1. I have been trading stocks and options for 10 years but I have never traded future. I would like to start to trade S&P and NASDAQ futures and Emini. Any good book or online free tutorial?

  3. have you ever traded ETF's on the major indices ?

    example SPY , DIA , QQQQ , IWM ?

    or even options on the major ETF's with tight spreads ?

    those move like futures but with smaller leverage
    so if you make a mistake or freeze and cannot pull the trigger , the pain is less while learning
     
  4. I have only traded QQQQ and SPY and their options.
     
  5. ok ... so looking back at your QQQQ and SPY trading ... was this daytrading , swingtrading
    or something else ?

    Daytrading but I hold the position overnight and do swing trading if I can not close the position the same day with profit.

    Sounds like your seeking refuge from PDT....

    NQ is like trading 800 QQQQ but off of NDX basis.
    ES is like trading 500 SPY but off of SPX basis.

  9. Read everything you can on ET's boards. You'll gather a wisdom on this topic unrivalled by any tutorial or book in print. While reading, you got to use your common sense, otherwise it's labor lost.
