The E-Mini Pit
If you currently trade, or are interested in learning to trade, the CME E-Minis, this thread is for you. As opposed to just another market direction discussion thread, our focus here will be on providing a traders’ resource of specific information on the E-Minis, including discussions of brokers, trading platforms, order types, trading methodologies, money management techniques, futures-specific tax issues, etc. In addition, please post your trades, but please include your reasoning, so we can all learn. Links to charts, articles, seminars, and other message boards dealing with E-Minis or futures trading are encouraged. Also, please check this original post from time to time to see any new links we post here.
A Few Thread Guidelines:
This is a moderated thread, so please respect these few posting guidelines:
1. Please stay on topic. If you want to discuss corn, beans, or stocks, there are lots of other threads for those.
2. Please no bashing, profanity, or boasting. Show respect for the folks who wish to post here. Help out the new folks who want to learn.
3. If posting trades or market predictions, please tell us why you are taking that position.
4. Have fun, and help us make this board a valuable resource to Futures Traders.
