How fast can your e-mini trades be?

That's a pretty basic question, so I thought I would ask it in the blog about emini trading basics.

Well, the answer is, as often happens, "it depends." It depends on your target and your market volatility on a given day.

But if you an e-mini futures day trader, you are most likely to be a scalper, and even prefer to go for small, quick scalps. In a case like that your trades should not last long at all, a few minutes on average.

Some of such trades do not take even a minute and I like to call them "quickies" which emphasizes how fast they are. If you are a good KING trader, quickies are what you should encounter relatively frequently. On some days even you may even score a few.

For more about KING, an emini trading course of some renown, check out my site, including the section with its current e-mini day trading results.

Wanna see a nicely trending market?

Who wouldn't.

To see one example of it with basic explanations of what it means for the market to be trending as opposed to be stuck in a trading range, hop to this post on my other blog.

Speaking of e-mini trading basics

Or just e-mini basics, for simplicity, although I tend to write "emini" instead of "e-mini" because that makes things even simpler. Yet, it's "e-mini" that is the correct form, according to grammar Nazis, and who would really argue with them.

So speaking of emini basics, again, I think that all you need to learn what emini futures are and how to trade them is this single page. Yes, I admit, I am somewhat biased here, but nobody's perfect.

And if you are looking for a good emini day trading course, may I suggest this one. For starters, it's very reasonably priced. Not even $2000, let alone $6000. Yes, some of those things can be that expensive. And not necessarily any better than KING, if at all.
