Going on from something I read in another thread, it got me thinking how simple it sounded and how pathetic (right word?) normal wages are when you compare yourself to working for 1 tick an hour ~ $25, But I'm curious as to how many people approach their futures trading this way?
If I could make 1 tick a day - $125 a week, constantly, I'd be doing a whole lot better then what I currently am.
What about then if I tried to make 1 tick every 3 hours? - $250 a week
Then moved onto 1 tick every hour - $750 a week
You could then move onto 2 contracts and start again.
I guess that the process is the same as it is with all types of trading, you need to get plenty of screen time and practice till you find yourself an edge to where you can constantly be profitable.
The simplicity of it all just made me take a step back and realize that I still have quite a journey in front of me.
