What Futures are the best for intraday & trend-following traders? Hi. I'm not sure which futures market I should trade. I'm a technical analyst & trend follower, so I simply use a chart to make intraday decisions. I usually don't keep overnight positions. So the fundamental part doesn't really matter to me. 1) I wonder what market will suit such type of traders best. I think the market should fulfil the following: - has to be very liquid & in high volume (so I can buy/sell as many contracts as I wish, say 50-100) - has to be volatile (but NO sudden volatile, say 100 ticks up/down all of a sudden) - no gaps in intraday trade - very easy for my stop-loss order to be executed (that's why I don't like sudden volatile) - the leverage ratio has to be high (eg I only need to pay $1000 to control $100,000 worth of contract) - there're many chances a day to catch some decent trends. As I'm going to trade full time, I hope I can find a market which can give lots of opportunities to me As the criteria list is just a draft, feel free to comment on it! You may even suggest any other criteria which I might miss it! 2) What futures market will probably suit me best? Thank you.
