2012 Trading Predictions

I (John Paul) may not have a crystal ball, but I have a prediction of where 2012 will end up. How can I be so sure? Although you may follow my real-tme price action methods of day trading, know that historical analysis has played a major role in my trading career.

Day Trading Stocks vs. Trading Futures

Trading index futures, such as the E-Mini S&P 500 (ES), offers more bang for the buck as compared to trading stocks. Traders who can successfully make two to four ES points consistently can eventually increase the amount of traded contracts. In addition, futures commission charges are generally much lower than stocks, with current round-turn costs averaging just above $4.00 plus exchange fees.

E-mini trading accounts can be established for as little as $2,000. However, $5,000 is the industry standard. Also, the...

Day Trading Data Feed & Broker Tips

Periodically, I like to help customers with things that are outside the price action methods I teach. This week I’d like to discuss commissions and execution. Even though we can’t control market direction or volatility, there are certain aspects of trading we can control. The first of these is commission. In today’s environment, we consumers have the luxury to be more selective in whom we choose to do business with (brokers). The next variable is the choice of trading platform; and considering today’s technological advances, there is an ever-increasing amount of choices. The next variable is cost. Keep in mind...
