Swing Trading Futures

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by c.chugani, Jan 19, 2009.

  1. Its very common for people to scalp or daytrade index futures, but I would like to know if there is anyone here who swing trades them (ie. for a couple of days to a couple of weeks)?

    What are the main concerns when swing trading futures vs equities? How do you determine the % cash you need for daily settlements? Do you people trade outright or construct spreads with back months?

    Any personal insights, links to websites or books would be highly welcome.

  2. Unless you are willing to enter and exit in the overnight market when many deep retraces occur, you will likely get killed.
  3. You are a rocket scientist, if I were your teacher I would fail you for plagiarism!
