larrybf: âNOW given my trading parameters should i stick with trading the NQ or should I switch to the ES mini. I am making money now... If youâre comfortable with the NQ and you're making money, I see no reason for you to rush over to the ES. You may find it worthwhile to put up a chart of the ES alongside your NQ chart and begin to observe the relationship, though. In time, youâll develop an understanding of the similarities and differences and can then make an educated decision as to whether you wish to trade the ES. â...but like everyone find myself "faked out" often utilizing my present system.â Trading the ES as opposed to the NQ is unlikely to alter the effectiveness of your strategy, unless it is highly specific to the NQ. From what you described of your methods, I suspect that that is not the case. Unless you feel that being âfaked outâ of trades is inordinately cutting into your suspected profits, then I would simply accept it as part of your trading methodology and continue to generate revenue.
