Whats the best way to learn trading bond futures using TA?

  1. Hello, I'm 21 just got my undergrad been short term trading stocks for a year or so. I started off shitty but have turned it around.

    I'm looking to get a job at a prop firm but I find the only ones near me trade futures--specifically notes and bonds. I feel I have a respectable knowledge of basic fixed income fundamentals (duration, convexity, yield curve) along with basic rules and pricing of future contracts.

    However, I have no idea on the best strategy to go about trading them. I was just wondering if anyone can recommend some books that cover fundamental, TA fixed income futures trading or would be willing to share some minor tips on how they do it.

    I'm much more inclined and biased to rely on TA but loving reading anything :). thanks!

    I've been doing this a long time. Don't waste your time. If you apply TA to the bond futures you will get killed. Take that $, and invest it. Don't touch it for 40 years. You'll B way better off. Trust me.
