This is the same as a child finding out fire is hot for the first time. They have to learn somehow how the world works...

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

As @sam028 already stated, of course you can trade 10 contracts in TF and GC (as well as in any other market).

But your fills will depend on current liquidity and volume of these markets by the time you place your orders, so it could happen that you get different fills (and appropriate slippage as well) for your orders.

If its any help, here is the contract specs on the TF contract, AKA the Russell 2000 Mini

https://www.theice.com/products/86

The published margin is $5,610 per contract, but my broker asks $500 currently for intra-day.

Assuming you have a full margin only broker, to control 10 contracts you'd need $56,100 in margin, and on a intra-day supporting broker, $5,000 in margin provided you bail before closing of the ICE market.

So, can you trade 10 contracts, yes, sure you can, if you have the margin requirements your broker imposes on you.

Lots to learn here, do tons of research, and don't trade until you understand what you're doing!

Good luck!
