Eminis have become worthwhile trading vehicles. They are volatile, liquid, and provide plenty of signals for the day trader. After years of day, swing and position trading stocks, I decided to diversify. My favorites are now the S&P and NQ Emini futures. The Russell Eminis have lost a great deal of volume since they were moved to ICE and no longer work as well for most of us,at least for now. This board is for exchange of ideas on short term trading of Eminis, including Russell, Nasdaq S &P and Dow futures. High volume ETFs are also fine daytrading vehicles and discussion of these is also welcome. Chart settings, entry and exit methods, and various forms of TA used for short term plays are welcome. Discussion of trading systems and techniques are also appropriate and encouraged.
Political comments will be OK only as long as they are related to market moves. There are plenty of other soapboxes on SI for political rants and raves.
Now, let's make some money...
