QQQ trading

Hi,
I have question about about switching NQ to QQQ. I have a strategy for NQ but doe to tax policy I'm not able to trade futures. This problem will soon be solved, but in the meanwhile I'm curious about trading QQQ with the same strategy. Positions will be hold approximately 2-5 days. Is there any pitfalls for trading ETF's, that future trader should know?

qqq and nq will track each other almost perfectly. IMO, NQ is easier to trade after hours but if you are holding for a few days it shouldn't matter. Also there are taxation differences for Americans, but since you are from Finland I don't think these differences will apply to you. Just make sure to understand your sizing. I believe 1 NQ is equal to 800 QQQ.

Always read the prospectus of the ETF, some have management fees or rebalancing structures that are not favorable.

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.

If you have a consistent system for capturing 2-5 day QQQ swings then you don't have to worry about any sophisticated options strategies. Just utilize my easy 3-step program:

1. Buy at-the-money Calls or Puts as indicated by your system.
2. Sit back and have a few beers.
3. Profit
