Hello all, I traded stocks from 2001 - 2004 along with ETF's. I left the world of daytrading to get my degree in business. Now I am employed in the "real" world and the day trading itch has never left. The itch is like bad hemroid that flares up everytime I think about my mundane job (I know some of you are with me on this). So while working in my mundaneness for the last year I have been working on a trading methodology I am finally getting comfortable with. -I will be trading the E-mini S&P. (or another mini after hours???) -I have $4000 and will be trading 1 lots until I can triple my account. -My system generates roughly 3 to 4 trades a day on average Some questions I have - Is $4000 enough? My margin is 900 and I will most likely pay commisions of $5 round turn. - If I stay employed in the world of small cubicles and musty air what mini products can I trade starting from about 4pm - 5pm central time that has decent volume? - Did I miss anything????
