If I understand, you are looking for a brokerage to have a smaller account to trade mini futures contracts? The only micro contract I'm aware of is CBOT gold. Try dropping a note to Annemarie Ziron at Choice Capital in Chicago. Her email address is email@example.com Choice is a GIB with RJ O'Brien and they offer all the popular trading platforms.
Hello to everyone,
Just found this forum through a link from Reddit. Been studying Forex for about 1 year developing my own systems in MT4 / MT5/ MQL using technical analysis . Looking to expand my knowledge into futures and stocks , other trading platforms and research tools. And hopefully to bank a few more pips along the way.
I have been a member for a year, but have not yet contributed to the site.
I have been trading stocks and options since 1983, sometimes very successfully, and other times not. I use hgsinvestor software, High Growth Stock Software, for my end of day top down prospecting. I also teach High Growth Stock investing with my partner, Ian Woodward. We have held twice-yearly seminars for the past 12 years.
I use thinkorswim primarily for real time trading, and occasionally use Ninjatrader. I mostly trade debit and credit spreads on individual stocks, so I am a big fan of the TOS platform. I consider myself an intermediate term, or swing trader.
I am looking forward to being more active on Big Mike's Trading Forum.
after several years of money saving by an insurance company with earnings like 0.5 % per year i thought maybe i can do better myself. So I bought multicharts and opened an account at IB. Hope to do well. But that shouldn't be a problem with the knowledge found in this forum.
My name is Justin and I'm currently a student at the UofA. Started trading when i was 16 and of course I've gone broke a few times, but I have persevered and started to actually make money in the market. I hope to one day be a successful day trader and willing to put in as much time as it takes to get me there. I hope to learn a lot from this site and hopefully help others
I've been following forum for several months, great site for sharing info and ideas. I've been recently trading options on futures and am also interested in ideas regarding selling or buying options at earnings.
I'm very exited to stumble upon Big Mike's Trading Forum. From what I can see from the short time that i've been on is that it's a great place to learn and share information with minded people. Such a great idea! Thank you Big Mike for creating this community.
I've been trading mostly equity options for a while and have recently started trading more in the futures markets. I use the Thinkorswim platform for Options, ETF's and Stocks and Ninja Trader for my Futures trading.
Well i'm glad to be part of a community where we all share the same goal. Thanks again!
Hello All, I trade with several platforms including Tradestation, eSignal, MT4 and now Ninjatrader. I had to struggle like all of us do, losing money and paying my dues to the learning curve. Now I feel I am more confident in earning a little bit each day. Hoping to contribute to the forum and learn from fellow traders.
I trade eMini, Forex, oil, bonds, Russel, gold, Dow, and some currency futures.
I am an engineer currently working on my Masters in Financial Engineering. My goal is too research statistical methods for trading and proper valuation so that I can strike out on my own and leave engineering behind.
