i think it depends on your style and your own compréhension of this market principally.

But according to succesfull traders there are markets who are more difficult like crude, dax, russsel kind of market with less liquidity and higher volatility.

There are no easy or difficult market just markets with his own particularity.

A thought, I would gather that the easiest market would be the market that allows one to limit the amount of risk when trading.

there are several markets that you could be involved with:

1. Equities : Long term investment, Short and Long Term Swing trading, Day Trading
2. Commodities trading
3. Options trading
4. Forex

and probably a few others I have forgotten and flavours of trading in each.

The easiest one and most successful... is the one you have studied and understand.

From the tone of your question, I don't think you have studied any type of trading in any depth. Hence they will all be hard for you. There is no entry level trading for real money that is easy in any of these areas.

Think about it... it is like my father said to me (and I am sure he heard it somewhere else).....

If it were easy.... everyone would be doing it!

Actually, I started with #1 in 1998. I've played around with #2 in 2011...thought about doing #4 in 2007, but, never followed through.

Thinking of trying #2 again soon...

I can see you have been jumping around a little, that's ok , I did so too before.
But all markets will be hard to trade and give strings of losing trades.

I found that if I could not trade consistent good and profitable on a demo account there was way I could do it on a live account either.
- so step #1 was to trade 100 trades using my strategy and be conistent profitable on a demo account.

my first and best advice is for you to do the same.

I plan on sticking with the emini's...need to get a new trading computer and put the current version of Ninja Trader on it.

I tried the Shadowtrader stuff for a while in 2011...yes. It was an expensive training experience.

The question I like to ask is WHY?.
Why didn't you stick with what you started with?
Why did you switch?
Why are you looking to change again?

It's the first question you should ask yourself. Why am I trading?

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

OK....but have you got a proven profitable trading strategy where there is an edge ?
Have you been using the same strategy all the time , or have you been changing that too ?

I don't understand why you want to trade the ES instead of f.ex. M6E or forex...which will give you much more time to get confident in yourself and your edge ...?

I advice you to read Mark Douglas' book "Trading in the zone"
