    Thanks, any reason why you go with Trading View?

    Thanks. Is there any reason why you'd focus on ETFs rather than individual shares? Won't you get bigger moves by buying individual shares?

    Less business risk, somewhat more market risk -- the effect of individual stocks is less (as you've noted), which means that there is less requirement to know myriad individual details. Yet, you can still have them grouped with a reasoned eye towards purpose. (Whether inverted, 2x or 3x or whatever...) Saves not only a boatload of time, but also worry.

  6. I would trade Eurodollar calendar spreads with a holding time of a few days to a few weeks. Low variance price action and low margin requirements enable you to take some heat and work your position without getting your face ripped off in most cases.

    with passive income and free time you can trade MNQ. try to make avg 2 bucks per trade per contract net (10 bucks risk 20 bucks profit), make 10 - 30 trades a day with up to 3 contracts. when capital grows to at least 6k or more switch to NQ 1 contract, add lowest margin futures spreads to diversify and better use of free capital ... this requires having an edge obviously

    Nice idea, but you learn nothing from it. I traded STIRS for years and back in the day it was an execution game intraday.

    Nowadays, swing trading STIRS is just like watching pain dry
