  2. Just curious. Paper trading 400 lots? Why not 4 or 40 or 4,000? Why specifically 400? Enquiring minds want to know.
     
  3. No offense meant here. But why the F would anyone care about some paper trade swinging a virtual 400 lot for ticks? :confused:
     
  4. Just go along with the little fella, we may have lost rubberbird, but who cares now we have Mishwar!!!! Check out the thread link he posted, he is a legend in the making.
     
  5. If you did not trade futures, what did you use to trade the S&P 500? SPYs, options on SPX? XSP?

    Why not paper trading 888 contracts?

    Actually, why even both paper trading such a huge number of contracts?
     
  8. How does anyone charge $0.004 on a made-up security?
     
  9. I think there may be a hidden meaning in trading three 8's.
    Truely a revoulutionary technique. Bravo, bravo I say.
