I'm a full-time Emini day trader and split my time between Sydney Australia, Biarritz France and Kauai Hawaii. I've been trading for over 10 years and decided to go full-time when the GFC hit and my consulting business went quiet. Best decision I ever made.
The two biggest markets for day trading are the Emini (futures based on the S&P500 stock market index) and Forex. Coming from a background of trading individual stocks, the stock market index futures were the most natural choice for me. Plus at the time there was better trading data on Emini index futures than Forex. But these days I'm equally interested in the Forex futures - along with Crude Oil, Government Bonds, Gold, Silver, etc.

I use this Google+ account to alert followers to commentary I post on Emini-Watch.com. I also like to share interesting articles, not necessarily about Emini trading. My other interests include: surfing big waves, central bank intervention in the markets, the impact of ultra-high speed Internet on economic growth, the collapse of the Euro project, modern pre-fab buildings, etc.
