I think I've found myself a new home with the E-Minis. The coming weeks will see. I stumbled across this website. The commentary on trading action he provides is credible. His book-list is solid, which is mostly to say, it overlaps with my own favorites.

I'll walk my own path, of course. But I'll also borrow from whom it makes sense to do so, probably the chief of which is Linda. It's going to bust my butt to work my way through her 135 page trading manual and her other materials, plus Farley's stuff, plus Bernstein's stuff, plus William's stuff. But it needs to be done, plus lots and lots and lots of hours of screen time.

OTOH, it's not as if I'm a total newbie. I've traded the E-Minis before, and it's not as if I want to make big money from the game. I really am just looking to do a couple of small, sensible trades per day and be done.

As for your doing the auto trading stuff, I can report this. I had a friend who went auto. Took him three years to get it up and running. But after he did, it was hands off and profitable. Linda, OTOH, says that of the hundreds of traders she's known, only two were systems traders. The rest used discretion. But Schwager's interviews with top traders prove that no matter who says something can't be none, examples can be found of traders doing it successfully. "If there's a will, there's a way."
