Hello Guys,

I've recently been very eager to learn about futures when I realized that it was a superior product for day trading. Listening to Chat With Traders episode with Ben (@BLB_Capital) really sparked my interest in order flow trading. I have been swing trading stocks for the past year with a bit of success. I have been daytrading stocks every now and then but I would love to learn to daytrade futures.

I was hoping the order flow traders (profitables ones even better) would point me toward legit resources that I can learn from and maybe a few tips about what I should be spending my time on and what to avoid. Also maybe set my expectations straight.

If there is already a similar thread to this i'm sorry and also I hope everything makes sense my written English is not the greatest.

Thank you in advance!

Then read the Jigsaw, daytradr, jouralytix review thread, read the Peter Davies Jigsaw AMA thread, both in the Trading Reviews and vendors thread.
Type "Jigsaw" in to search and read the Sierra vs Jigsaw thread, or the order flow tools other than Jigsaw thread.
The moderators spend a lot of time deleting duplicate threads so most product information is usually just in one or two threads. If you want information, it's all there, you just have to skim through it yourself.
