I notice that this board has about 99% stock traders and a few index traders. Why is that? I searched around and Maverick posted that he has only known a hand full of successful futures traders. What makes trading stocks better than trading futures intraday? I can only come up with risk vs. reward. Stocks can move $2+ in a day which is 200 ticks. Even if the 200 ticks in the mini russell is 20 points. Also, edge gets thrown around. Why does it seem to be easier to find an edge in stocks? Commissions? If that's it, why not Forex? Look forward to your thoughts.
