With $50K you have such an advantage where I truly suggest you trade 2 lots per contract and allow double the drawdown that you would allow for 4 contracts.
Swing trade first because you do have the margins to maintain and the capital to absorb the "noise" that the markets present. You will find that when you work with larger time frames you don't need that precise entry, and indicators actually do work much better on larger time frames in my opinion.
You will make mistakes. It's ok. Make intelligent mistakes and you will refine your method.
