What is the correct instrument to trade? I am new to this field of trading and want to get off the blocks like fast. i have heard not to do options because those types are strange and in college could not get laid at all, others say they are blacksheep of the family. Futures traders seem to have a lot on the ball but i wonder if they on average are as good as the average bond trader on a bad day. Stocktraders seem to fall somewhere in between, surely they are forever looking for the next piece of insider information to put them over the top for the year, that would make the mom and dad feel relieved for sure. But in all candor i need some guidence, please help. which is best for a well healed and handsome newbie to make the big splash? Thank you in advance for your kind, considerate and thoughtful self in helping me. Later, my new fellow sidekicks.
