I heard quite a lot of people said 10K isn't enough to trade. After trading for a few months, I feel it is OK. 10K for one T-Notes or NQ contract is very reasonable(some may even think it is too conservative). Even I have more than 50K in my a/c, sometimes I also trade one or two contracts only. This is because I feel the odds of the trade isn't good enough but still want to go for it, so I play small. One contract won't give you very good profit even you right for many times, but it is OK to start with such amount.
