  1. hi 3 year old mike after the live chat the other night and how the chat room was all talking about futures trading v stocks i went to type in stocks V futures and your vid popped up.
    this was good content man 👍

  2. Mike: I need help. I use Tradingview to chart because I love their features and my broker Tradovate (that is owned by Ninja Trader) allows me to make trades through Tradingview. No one for weeks has been able to answer my question:
    If I want to trade, for example 2 contracts of the S&P 500 E-Mini Futures, what is that equivalent to in lots?
    Tradingview uses lots, not contracts.

  3. I prefer trading stocks to futures because future fees are 20x as expensive. For example, I trade 50 shares of SPY on TD Ameritrade for $0.11 and to control the same amount of shares in Futures, I would need 1) /MES contract for about $2.00. That's $0.11 stock fees versus $2.00 futures fees. So the advantage of stock trading is 20x lower fees, but the disadvantage is I have to put up about $20k for 50 shares of SPY (but I'm not really RISKING that much because of my stop loss.)

  4. I just started trading futures, I have a good winning percentage but my few losing trades are killing me cause I hang on to them to long…do you have any videos when trading futures to get out of losing trade. The problem is the price moves so quick you can be down 50 bucks in 5 seconds and be back to even in 10 seconds…what do we do?

  5. I'm just starting to learn all this. So, apologies if my questions are stupid

    2:40 You mentioned 10 point move on 100 shares of SPY is $100P/L? Does that mean each point in SPY is always $0.1? Or is the value of point subject to change?

  6. i started trading 2 years ago, and i gonna switch to futures, i was bag holding a stock for 8 months, and i realise futures doenst stay down that long, ecept a major economic crisis, future doesnt care about quaterly earnings, contract, ceo, insiders,etc…. bla..bla.bla…

  7. turn from your sins and believe in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and be baptized in THE NAME of THE FATHER THE SON and THE HOLY SPIRIT( if you haven’t already before CHRIST comes back or before you die

  8. I hit a like button yes i am interested in futures. But i got to watch ur contract Margin videos. If u do mini ES. Lets say margin requirement is 40000( just example) yes i see ur point not to use too many contract so lets say i use 1 contract with $500 margin. So still we are using a pretty high leverage x7 x8 x8 or am i completely lost ? One of our strong interest is the leverage that we do not have this kind of leverage with stocks. I need to watch ur past videos with likes button. Mahalo. From. Aloha state be safe

  9. Trading may not be suitable for beginners because it is possible to lose all your invested capital. I am sounding this warning because i had experience total loss trying to trade with less knowledge even after watching tons of video. Consulting a good broker that has a unique execution capability and a reliable trading platform is a better decision to make which makes risk management trading decision more simple. Harry Clark is a reputable expert in the trading world who manages my trade profitably which allows me make withdrawals. His management can be reached him(harryclark304@gmailcom) for traders who wants to be successful.

  10. There are more good reasons to trade futures over stocks. 1) There are over 8.000 stocks to choose from, that's 8,000 chances to pick the wrong one. With futures, you have four Micro Contracts to choose from; S&P index, Dow Jones index, Nasdaq index and The Russell 2000 index. All have $50 or less margins. Now you only have FOUR choices to evaluate and just select one and get good at trading it. 2) If you have an account size less than $25,000 you can only enter and exit 5 trades in any five day period on the same day. In other words, practically impossible to day trade. 3) You are far less likely to get "bent over" by multi million dollar ALGO trading programs that suck the early profit that is available in the first moves in a stock trade. ELECTRONICALLY and faster than you can blink…. 4) Stocks will sit in a very narrow trading range for weeks at a time, then POOF, make a big move. You not only have to be good at picking stocks, your timing has to be perfect, unless you are very lucky.
