Have been trading US index futures for 1-2 years now. I have now moved to trading options on the indexes instead. I will journal the process as best I can.

I have traded the ES live and simulated almost every day for over a year now, up big many times only to give most back. My biggest problem is that I trade with an account to small for futures trading. Putting on a trade that makes money is no longer the problem for me. The real challenge at this point is position size, related to letting profits run. Trading 2 lots, preferably 3, gives you considerably more flexibility and will return larger profits in the long run. Most of my profits have come from 10-15% of my winning trades. So you must be able to manage profits in a way that allows you to let them run, just as hard as risk management (I think). OK i'm starting to go off on a tangent, SHORT AND SWEET COMMENT: I now trade SPY options, as well as a few others. This for me has been the answer to my problem. LEVERAGE WITH LOWER RISK. I can hold a position overnight now and sleep. My commission is only 1.50 on each side of the trade per option (could be better, but fine with me). 1/2 my trades I am out as a day trade, the other 1/2 swing for a day to a week, mostly 1-3 days. I am going to start a journal so I can journal my progress and hopefully find others that are trading the same. Can share and learn.
