Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

As josh said options will always give you the greatest leverage, but you need to understand how to trade them first.
The benefit of /ES is that you can trade it 24 hours a day contrary to options and SPY.

Here is a link to an Al Brooks article on the subject:
Brooks Price Action - Daytrading ETFs and Stocks

The article is missing, appears they all are on Al's site.

EDIT: It appears you need to be logged in on his site to view it. Duh.
