Sorry to be such a downer, but we have to accept the possibility that all the advantages reside with the pros just as they always have, and it may in fact have gotten worse. At the same time, the penalty for trying has also gotten less; retail commissions are much lower, quality historical data can be had for free, quality trading platforms and analysis software are cheap or free, you can hone your skills in sim, and even the smallest futures trader has equal access to market data and a place in the queue. I'm not yet sure there is a "secret" available to the retail trader.

Your not a downer, you're real as a breath of fresh air...thanks

I guess I'll just have to trade in the direction of the PRO's and just get a small piece of the move.
