    I have been trading for around 4 months, but the stock market is moving a little crazy right now. I have made a little money with little losses. I want to start trading e-minis and futures contracts I surf the web to get information, and I keep running into rediculous education center's that want to charge you 6k-15k to learn how to trade the s&p 500 and that's just crazy! I need to know where I can go and get free education and learn. My goal is to become a day trader with futures contract's.
  2. There is a lot of good info out there for free... no need to pay anyone to teach you theory and general info. If you don't want to pay anyone to teach you their methodology, expect to put in a lot of work developing your own.

    By the way, don't buy software that promises big results overnight... it just doesn't work like that.

    Good luck,

  3. try to trade the various equity ETF's in small size

    ( really small size if necc )

    if you cannot get profitable after a few months of this then

    I suggest you give up the dream ( for the moment )

    of trading ES minis

    by the way ... there is a whole universe of sectors out there
    to trade both long and short ( not just SPY )

    but really you must start small

    good luck
