  1. like most of you I am with IB

    with IB you don't need to lose sleep

    but quite frankly you won't get rich with 3.5 k margin per index contract

    when I calculate how much money I would have made doing double the size with 500 bucks per contract

    like for example with MIRUS futures

    I would be damn stupid to stay with IB

    Just keep your IB account for the data feed.
  3. Impatient money is stupid money.

    Good luck getting rich.
  4. If that's so, I wouldn't expect you to change, cold/c-kid.

    it depends all on
    1) how much money you have
    2) how much money on single contract you are able to make a day

    you can be very rich very soon with IB, if you can trade

  6. first clever thing you ever said :p
  7. you should watch me wait for setups and gauge the trend

    a freakin sleeping duck

    a fat sleeping duck :p
  8. I won't tell you money

    but I will say, I make 200 bucks per car per day

    so for me its a HUGE difference 500 or 3.5 k per car

    as I imagine it is a huge difference for any trader

    200 bucks / car? what u are doing all day long? looking prono and trade for 15 minutes?
    that are 4 ES points ????????????????
  10. LOL you just gave me quite a laugh

    you see I honestly fancy myself a pretty good trader

    but if what you say is true

    I SUCK :D :D

    keep in mind I am not automated

    you probably are :(
