I'm a stock trader and know nothing about futures (and have no intention of trading futures). I met a guy at one of these trader hookups in my hometown last week and he said he traded the ES, 5 contracts at a time, and averaged between 4-6 points a day. Sounds impressive but I have no idea what it really means and didn't get a chance to talk to him anymore. How much money is that per day? And if he's so consistent why doesn't he scale up to say 10 contracts a day? And lastly, is that impressive? Do most good traders average the same amount? Or is it complete bs? tia.
