Hello! I`m scalper in Russian Futures Exchange and I`m intrerested in scalping in CME. I don`t know very much about features of scalping in America, and I don`t even know, if this strategy work in CME. Here, in Russia, we have very good conditions for scalpers (succesful scalpers make 10,000-20,000$ a month and more). So, surely, I want to try scalping in more liquid markets, and have some questions for CME scalpers (I hope here are scalpers =)). Ask, please, if you can:
1. How many deals do you make a day? In Russian RTS Index Futures I make 700-800 deals a day on average, can I trade just as aggresively in CME, or it will be not effectively?
2. How much money can make scalpers in CME? Do you know scalpers, who make more than 500K a year?
3. Which futures do you use for scalping?
Thanks and sorry for my English =)).
IF doing well in Russia, stay there. It is extremely hard to repeat that in western liquid exchanges. There are lots of people trying and failing, and a few who succeed on a longterm basis
