Let me say up front that i am not a futures trader but have many years of stock trading under my belt. I decided to explore futures trading after i took a week trial for a futures trading education room where the guy had 27 days in a row of profitable days. (dont ask who, they are not advertisers here and i dont want trouble from the moderators)Every day i was there he did over 10k. There was no question in my mind that he got the trades because he used a buy\sell stop entry system with the orders entered well in advance. I was easily able to make the same trades on a simulator. The system used was a simple intraday support\ resistance system. Buy support and sell resistance. We were to scale in up to 4 levels 25% of our maximum intended contracts at a time with a 4.5 point stop and a 2 point profit target. I have been using the ib simulator and it seems to be dead on for fills so i do not think i am being fooled by inaccurate fills. I have 2 weeks on my own now without a losing day. The es seems so much easier to read than stocks like the qqqq. I would like to hear from veteran futures traders. Is now just a favorable market for this style or is it really this much easier to trade futures than stocks?
