  1. I first conducted this poll about two and a half years ago, and ask that you kindly participate again in this new poll. The poll itself is the same. I just wish to see if the numbers have remained fairly constant over time. For comparative and information purposes, here is a link to the previous poll, but I ask that you only participate in the new one at this time:

  2. Please vote if you have not yet done so.
  3. better yet would be for traders to note...ES 75%, NQ 20%, YM 15% for example...do the breakdown
  4. Another reminder to please vore if you have not already done so.
  5. Judging by this poll, as compared to the one I conducted a few years ago, it would appear that ET's intraday traders are more inclined to focus on a single market than they had in the past. Assuming, of course, that the numbers are anywhere near representative. (Big assumption.)

    My guess, and I could be mistaken, is that most of the respondents who generate more than 75% from a single market probably trade only that one market. Please let me know if I am mistaken. If you selected this option but trade more than one market, please post a few words to that effect. Thanks.

    I think you should have included the option, "more than 100%" :D
