    ES,YM,NQ,QM, CL is the most favourite by far for futures by daytraders.

    Then there are ETF in the AMEX like USO,FAS etc

    OIH moves well.
  4. For me, it's whatever is moving today. I look for stocks showing big gaps or unusual volume. By unusual, I mean like 2x normal.

  7. Stocks that are in play (earnings, news) that are very liquid and have a multi point intraday range (except GOOG). These stocks tend to change from day to day but most stocks in play will be good for a few days or so.
  8. i use to trade the es, now i focus all my attention on the nq. in my opinion way easier to trade. less shakeouts can use bigger stop etc.
  9. GC, QM and GBPUSD
  10. I think the rise of the ultra ETFs has altered the way many daytraders operate. Back in the day, most stock traders either concentrated on a few favorites or scanned for stocks that were in play. Now, why bother? Just trade the double and triple ETFs and get fantastic liquidity and leverage.
