I currently trade stocks and am looking to move to e-minis hopefully in about 2-3 months time. So far, Iâve watched the NQ and ES for the past week and have some newbie questions I hope the more experienced traders can help me on. Would it be better to concentrate trading just one or trade the 2? Assuming that the ES and NQ move together when a trend takes shape do you split your allocation between the 2 or do you just take ES or NQ, and which would be better? When I start trading, Iâll be using 1 lot contracts until I learn how to. Hopefully, if, after 6 months, I do get to be âfairlyâ successful trading the minis, what would be a sensible # of contracts to trade on the NQ/ES on a 50k account? By the way, these are some things Iâve noticed. Please tell me if my observations are wrong, since I hope to keep learning more about the minis: The NQs seem to be the more âdominantâ of the two, meaning that when the NQ & ES move in separate directions, the ES usually seems to weaken in its momentum due to the NQs âpullâ. Is this because some of the Nas 100 issues are also in the S&P? The ES creates more âfalse brkoutsâ whereas the NQ usually is able to run about 5 pts at least from a brkout, even if the brkout stalls. Sorry if the questions sound real silly. Thanks for your help.
