    Im looking to open up my own trading account and trade via Tradestation, IB, etc (undecided), but my question is what market do you guys think is better to trade electronically on one of these platforms? I have experience trading Bonds and Oil. Im looking for volume. Im currently trading oil for a prop firm, but the market is very thin so Im wondering would trading the mini-crude would be worth it or would bonds be the better trade. Thanks in advance.

    What market is better to trade electronically?
    Or probably any index futures market if you think you can get to understand a chosen market and become a killer trader.
  3. Have you tried forex (currencies)?

    Best derivative instruments with a combination of liquidity versus volatility are: (IMO)

    E-mini S&P (futures)

    These two are not only extremely liquid, but their volatility is consistent. Consistent volatility equates to perpetual opportunities for a trade. They lend themselves perfectly to all modes of trading and timeframes.
