Well, I think there is no 'easy' market or instrument. Since every market has its own specific behaviour and 'character', you need to check out which instrument fits best to your trading style and psyche.

So, if there would be an 'easy' market to trade, everyone would do it....

if its best for liquidity, it would be ES, if its for lower risk, NQ or YM; if its for very low risk, micro NQ or micro YM; if its for volatility, its NQ, help?

when I hear someone say easiest I think of somewhat slow moving so you have more time to think which ES is better for

Although NQ is $5 per tick, it is by no means "low risk." I definitely would not start out trading NQ, as it moves very, very quickly and requires substantial stops. The micros would be a good place to start.

I definitely subscribe to that.

Since I'm trading solely NQ for many years now I can say that NQ actually most of the time is a beast.

Stay away from NQ and try ES or maybe 10yr notes, but as already mentioned nothing is easy

Start with micro ES to get a feeling if you are brand new to futures

Exactly what @michaelleemoore said. Start with sim to learn the basics of your platform and then do yourself a favor and trade ONLY micros (MES, MNQ, MYM, M2K) until you are profitable and are comfortable with risk-management.

One thing I would add is find an area of trading to study that truly interests you and devote as much time as possible to it. In my opinion you're going to need to enjoy the work necessary in order to get where you want to go. Curiosity and interest will certainly help in this regard.

Good luck.

MES, if you're just starting out. ZN, if you've been trading for some time & also can read usual DOM occurrences on most days.

I was just reading through this post and saw your reply. Very interesting.

What are the different areas of study? Even in a broad sense -- like the study of a certain industry? I love to geek out on research and I'm a fairly new futures trader. Combining the two could be right up my alley.
