I couldn't agree more on this. ES is the best instrument for its liquidity. I like it so much just on that factor. I used to get funded, manage to get great days like $1k a day on just a cap of 5 lots and losing days of about $300. The only reason I get kicked out is that intraday trading is a MUST for them while for ES, it's just an instrument that you should jump in about once every 4-6 days. Now, I'm trading with my own money, and it's so much easier to trade.

Now, my winning to losing days ratio is so much better. Just trade some other instruments while monitoring ES, you'll know when is the time to enter the trade for ES.

Are you referring to trading only on days when the es is heavily trending? When do you consider good days to trade?

Consider last friday, that was a good day NOT to trade, but I still manage to pull away $250 on just 2 lots. When ES is heavily trending and you happen to be on the right side with >2 lots, just sit and hang on tight. diversify your lots into different risk to reward. 1st (or maybe 2nd as well) lot is always to secure the money in, 3rd lot is about being greedy but MUST stop loss at a small profit. you'll be amazed at how just 1 lot can get your at least 4 handles when ES is heavily trending. otherwise, just scalp on other days to get a better feel of the market.

I always treat ES like a raging bull. and I'll look at the chart everyday just to monitor how the market is.

Read up on wave analysis,it`s closer to the market nature.It can be subjective a bit,but if your fitting it to the current conditions,you`ll get the results.Volume based trading could be very complex to analyse,though.
