Newbie Question about Wyckoff and ES


I'm absolutely new to trading (3 weeks of paper trading), but I've been trying to learn as much as possible.

I've chosen to try and day trade the E-mini S&P 500 Futures. I'm reading about Volume Spread Analysis and Wyckoff's Accumulation and Distribution.

Does Wyckoff's explanation of the markets apply to the ES, knowing that there isn't a limited number of "shares" of contracts? I mean, anyone with funds can create/sell a new contract.

The VSA method seems to be working, but I sometimes feel that I'm getting lucky with my analysis.

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.
