Hello all. I'm new to trading but it seems like it's a really bad time to be in stocks right now. I started looking at E-mini's and they seem like an amazing trading vehicle. The moves can be very wide intraday. Long enough to get in and out. At least a few good trenddays a month. Just think of the past ten days... And there's no uptick rule. Margin is just wild. No minimum 25 K. All though it's easy to be undercapitalized in futures, it seems like a great alternative to stocks. What do you guys think? I've done fairly well so far and I'm trying to build up my equity. Once I get my 25K I might jump to EchoTrade but for now, Eminis are it.
