I have been trading for the last three months with a broker in Chicago who allows me to follow his trades. He trades mostly Crude, the Euro, and Gold. After following him for three months I feel I am ready to open my own account (he is also not doing very well). What are the best brokers who offer the best commissions on futures? I am looking to trade Crude and the ES with roughly 10-20 contracts a day in both.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?
