For someone brand new with day-trading and a trading platform that let's you utilize a Sim, does anyone have some pointers? What should i start fooling with first? How do i develop a method? It seems like many methods are trade secrets that require gobs of money to uncover. Not sure how i feel about that. I will pay in coffee! What are some good standard indicators that I should start practicing with? Thanks!
since you asked how to start trading the ES Emini, i would like to point you directly to a website/youtube channel which shows a brilliant method which really works. It is free, too. You can buy a manual for 100 bucks, but this is not obligatory since you find the information also on the website and the daily youtube videos. The manual just accelerates the learning.
