Hello everyone. I am trying to learn to trade S&P mini futures with very little success. Actually no success. I am interested in Intraday trading and what strategies and time frames work best.

The platform I use is Think Or Swim. I would enjoy sharing ideas with those who have the same goals. I have tried so many indicators that I can't list them all and I have studied and tried to trade "Woodies CCI" system and most recently John Carters system.

Thanks.

My suggestion is learn how to trade using a footprint chart and order flow. You can get the "Gomi" footprint here on futures.io if you become an "elite member". You can also get a discount on Jigsaw tools which I suggest you take a look at. Even if you decide Jigsaw isn't for you the free education offered on their website will point you in the right direction.

Free Jigsaw education material - Free Tape Reading and Order Flow Training Materials

BTW- I have no connection to Jigsaw other than being a very satisfied customer.

One thing to note is Jigsaw will not work on TOS. It is a good thing because TDAmeritrade charges 2.25 in commision alone for futures PLUS exchange fees. (although I have heard of people negotiating discounts) The exchange fees are around 1.28 for the ES so you would be paying 3.53 each side or 7.06 round trip on TOS. My broker (Ninjatrader) charges 3.62 roundtrip for the same trade. I have also heard some bad things about TOS data feed.

If I were you the first thing I would do is read Peter's free E-book
Surviving Day Trading - Our Free eBook - Jigsaw Trading

Just a word about "systems". I looked at quite a few of them over the years but never bought one. They sound great in the marketing material. "All you have to do is wait for the green arrow and buy"! The problem is you still don't know how to trade. When the "system" starts to fail (if it ever worked at all) you will be scrambling to find a new "system".

Good luck to you. If you decide to go with the Jigsaw tools do not expect to understand in the first month or two. It is something that takes time. Do the drills, don't try to trade when you are learning. In time you will see it.
