I am relatively new to futures trading. To be honest until now I am 1-2 contract piker. About actual profits there is a lot of bulshitting. Beause most traders have some statistic I would like hear their EXPERIENCES how many contracts needs to be trades at once to average $500 daily profit during year. Conditions: As minimum 150 trading days during year /so if your yearly ES profit was not compaable to $75000 you do not "qualify" to reply/. If you are trading more than 40 contracts usually do not reply, please. I believe your strategies can be others as by somebody trading 1-20 contracts. I know that problem can be that in some situation you are trading 1 and in another 10 contracts but I would like hear about some standard or average size. If your average daily profit is for example $2000 and you trade usually for example 20 contracts simple split it 4x and the reply will be 5 cars. Thanks to reply just those that are in fact sucesfull, with real results, not opinions. Get $5000 one day profit is after my opinion easier than average $500 during year. I can accept replies if you averaged 250 daily with 3 contracts that the $500 will be 6 contracts but if you averaged $50 with one contract reply 10 looks questionable to me /psychological problems/. I believe same will be interesting for many so I am glad hear any opinion. I know, volatility is higher these days so it is necessary look on longer time frame. I am not asking your exact profit numbers, I do not ask how many contract you are trading actually. In difference to replies in pool I am happy to see voting everybody if his ES trading results are above zero during past year.
