  1. Hi all,

    Whats the most suitable contracts for daytrading? E.g Very liquid, Good intraday swings,ect ect.
    Come to think of it, not just metal futures but all commodities.

    Thanks NT

  3. what experience do you have in trading futures or even stocks ?

    you might want to experiment with the use of ETF's

    or use of the mini futures while learning what works and does not work in your trading methodology

    good luck
  4. CL is an energy commodity not a metal.

  6. If you're going for daytrading then wouldn't YM, ES or NQ minis be the best?

  8. SethArb,

    I trade Index futures,The Dax, Hang Seng ( to much slippage), Currency Futures Yen,Euro,BP. I just want to have a few more options to choose from and study for a while.

    I live in Australia and generally like to trade at the London Europe openings which is 6pm my time.

    At what time (Aussie time is CL most active).

    Thanks NT
