I'm new and have been reading tons of threads, but I want to ask some general questions... It seems a lot of people have forsaken dayrading altogether for futures trading. Is it more profitable? Is it easier? What are the tax advantages? Is it as fun as trading equities? One thing that concerns me is I see a lot of people urging others to trade eminis, but I don't see many talking about how well they're doing trading eminis. I see a lot more people talking about getting killed trading eminis. I am mainly curious about eminis because I see a day when my trading style might become quasi-obsolete. I swing trade and pick bottoms. I need volatility and a market moving directionally and not within a small range. This amazing volatility won't last forever. So, in genral terms, what's the verdict on eminis? Clearly superior? Clearly more profitable? Or not clearly any of the above? Seems a little dry to me, but hey, making money is always fun. I do like stock trading though. THX.
