Want I want to know covers many aspects, but it is all based around the ES. (you can sub the NQ or YM): Capital: -what amount of capital per contract? (to provide comfortable leeway) -how many contracts would a full time es trader trade, an experienced one who makes a living off of it? Techniques: -what is more effective in es: trend, reversals, ranges? -what types of charts? (candles, bars, 5 min, 15 min) -average # of trades a day? (every any overnight) -what indicators: tick, trin, pivots, s/r Comparisons: -how does it compare to trading the s&p 500 contract -# of contracts before partials fills come into play and any other info you have would be great. (books, sites) i am starting to following the sp 500 everyday to get a feel for the levels and how it moves, in hopes of trading the es in the future. thanks again for any knowledge.
