Welcome Magnus. I trade Forex some on the side and find it much harder to make money in Forex than trading Emini futures. Futures are the truth. So much is stacked against you in Forex. The brokers trade against you, the spreads and the data feed all contribute to the challenge! It is much easier to overcome the spreads and scalp futures. I would much rather pay these low commissions than the forex spreads. Don't know where to point you for stats. Maybe try yahoo finance? Good luck!
I agree, trading the 6E is all the excitement of Forex without the added unbalanced risks against you.

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?

Depends on the broker. I would also say that one of the real beauties of forex is being able to trade the major pairs. Using LMAX or IB you wouldn't have any problems (I use both because IB has better liquidity) and spreads less than a pip are a must.
Hi, I haven't found any ES data on this website but there is a ton of historical S&P, NASDAQ, and DOW data and trivia along with all sorts of other cool historical data. Not sure if it is micro enough for your needs but maybe it has some value for you. Good luck on your journey! Wow just realized how ancient this thread is....... LOL! I was playing too many video games, waiting tables, and not giving at bulls butt about my 401k when this thing was started! But anyway if this helps anyone here you go. Where Did The DJIA/NASDAQ/S+P 500 Trade On...
