    Some markets have much more institution players than small players. Others have quite a lot novices. Do you think we need different methods to handle this difference?

    Anyone know where can I find data about different types of players in different markets?

    I was wondering something along those lines also. I have heard that the S&P market has lots of professional traders, and institutions. Does that make it tougher to start out in? Should you start in stocks, even though the S&P is more efficient? And with all the pros in this market, do certain strategies and indicators not work as well, or even better?
