    I think most individual traders lose money. It is better to work for a hedge fund or inter-broker and get a cut of their profits, which they make from management fees etc...

    What is the expected return for an individual trader? Can any "real" trader share your experience? I have read sth like 70000$ per year.

    Everyone can, all depending on the trader himself.

    True, futures exchanges are better regulated compared to the norm forex brokers... nonetheless, i believe the key issue is whether the wannabe trader could adjust to the volatility of the future markets with the key benefits of profiting from both up/down scenarios...

    If adjusted well, its truly a paradise coz you can trade constantly to increase your capital on a daily basis.. otherwise, it's the faster way to get out biz if can't follow the futures markets, esp when the spikes come in!!

    Futures is almost a true zero sum game (minus the comission :0). It similar to stocks, but you get much better leverage plus alot of volatility which is a plus for a trader! Patience is the key to the game, likewise money management will be the holy grail that you must search for. No one can teach you those 2 concept except for yourself (IMO)!

    Successful future traders can make 6-7 figures depending on their account size of course. We take a little chunk out of the market day by day while swimming with the big whales (hedge funds, instituational banks, etc)

    Plus in the USA you get a good tax advantage trading futures!

    Re: I would like to be a futures traders

    Yarman,

    I would be happy to start posting some method that I personally use. My methods revolved around price action and volume, hence I have a little learning curve when it comes to Forex! They have no real consistance vol. I have a few ebooks and video that I can post, but I've just had a baby and things have been pretty busy around here. When I get sometime this weekend I'll try to setup a share online and I will post some ebooks and video on futures.

    Tony.
