I purchased a trading plan thats the writet believes works for him. After reading it however I was expecting a little more in the way of how to do things. I read up on sites about Futures, they tell me what they are and how they are traded, but as soon as I hit a brokers website I'm totally lost. Where do I start?? The software is overwhelming, graphs and nubers here and there, data streams, brokers fees, the lot.... none is entioned in the trading plan, I think it presumes you are already trading, badly. I have never traded, so wheres a good place to begin? I dont wish to read theory, I', after a how-to on the leading trading software, and how to organise my future trading periods. Any good links? I was thinking of picking up 'Futures and options fo dummies' Will this book tell me how to get started and what all the info ont he screen means? Thanks Noob.
