Please forgive me for commenting (with helpful intentions!) that in my opinion, especially in the context of CL, this sits very, very uncomfortably indeed with the words "Futures Experience: Beginner" beneath your name.

Again, I don't mean it to sound as disparaging as it might, but I can't help wondering whether you might perhaps be asking a "bad question", here, because you're looking for ways to do something better, when in reality I suspect that "trying to do something completely different" is actually likely to be far more profitable and productive.

I think Matthew's and David's posts above ought to help you, also.

I couldn’t quote properly, so I’m sorry for not quoting your reply as posted.

First, I greatly appreciate your reply, tact and sensitivity - and take no offense (or offence ).

I think I understand where you’re coming from, but rest assured, I didn’t start with CL, it’s just where I am now.

I have built up from trading one lots to mostly ten to fifteen, with an occasional twenty.

I don’t understand what you mean by “better” vs “different” and would much appreciate more details/thoughts on that subject.

Thanks again. I really appreciate your thoughtful reply, and will diligently follow up on all suggestions.
