Daily MACD is crossing, expecting some choppy selling, not much though,

then on to 3400 next week.

I think the key to successful trading is not using much leverage, unless you are really good at placing stops that don't get hit, don't use them. Instead, use 150k per ES or 15k per MES, trade with the trend, buying oversold hourly and taking profit and wait for another dip. I think it's not unreasonable to net 100 points per month that way, that's a nice living, not trying to get rich quick.

 

Basically, don't ever sell for a loss, wait for the trend to bail you out. And if you get into a 10% correction, just wait it out.

Thats exactly what Ive been doing on 3x TQQQ. Never ever sell at a loss.....theyre dying for you to fork it over like that. I use the On balance volume to get synchronized as good as I can with the MM inventory.....its not perfect but good enough. TQQQ has a super uptrend which will always bail you out.

Yes, cash instruments are safer with a smaller capital requirement. There are probably more trades in the futures market but I agree TQQQ trends very well.

Ive looked at the ETFs and it has to consist of large cap stocks that have tons of volume. The RUT with the small stocks will rarely ever work well......TNA 3x. Everything is the opposite of whats needed and the daily chart shows it. TQQQ is the only one I can find that has enough volume all the time during the trading session.

You might be able to position trade the 3x funds and make more over the year, but i like being able to trade the lower time frames 23 hrs a day, if you put up enough money to fully secure the contract to a 90% market retrace, then you don't have to worry about a perfect entry or stop, it's just not worth it going in undercapitalized or with the idea that you are going to trade an ES with 2k and not lose, it just is not going to happen.
