How to prepare for trading?

Hi

I just joined this site and looking forward to getting advice from the people here.

I have been daytrading stocks for a a few years and of course i'm familiar on how to prepare for my trading day (i.e. Gaps, earnings, upgrades etc.). Also constantly listening to Benzinga squak box for stock news.

I'm interested in starting to daytrade futures as well,(ES, NQ etc.). How would i prepare for trading futures? any specific newsfeeds to watch? any headlines? specific sites?

Any preference on specific futures that's easier to (transition into) daytrade?

Thanks

Welcome stv17.


You will find several journals here with pre analysis posts and what to watch for. Given you mention the ES, probably this thread may be a good start

My take is that there is no easier product to trade in the futures market. You immediately are competing with professional traders all over the world.

It's more to do with what futures market suits your personality, I think. By that I mean there are slow / thicker markets and fast / thinner markets. What you choose depends on your preferences.


May I recommend to use the various search facilities available on FIO. If you have any questions about how to use them just let me know.


Good luck!
