Trading The Futures Market

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A new adventure

Due to popular demand, I am now trading the Futures. I am trading the E-mini and Dow-mini Futures (the ES and Ym). I am taking a small $5000 account and looking to grow it, compound and trade at ever greater sizes. 

I am doing a lot of live scalping sessions towards the end of the US session. If you want to see when these are next available then join our next YouTube live session by checking our YouTube channel here.

Which platform / broker are you using?

Good question. I tested quite few combinations and found that I like NinjaTrader the best. It suits my aggressive scalping strategies really well. The commission costs are also nice and low which helps with higher volume trading.

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
