Will Scheier, aka TF_Futures, makes trade calls on the E-mini index futures in the TF chat room each day. He also conducts a course that demonstrates the basis of the setups for those calls. The techniques employed in the course are designed to identify the major price swings of the intraday trends. These price swings represent the meat of the index futures trends, and if identified successfully, can provide significant profit opportunities. And futures require much lower margin requirements than normally associated with pattern day trading in stocks.
