I am aware of the limiting interest and volume of these markets. Reason I seem to like softs is prolly they have done better for me than the other markets. I really never had an issue exiting. That may be partly as seldom have they moved away from my favor, if so not too far or for very long. They generally move back to my favor.

That's not all I trade though. I also like the seasonal swings in some of the energy markets. I guess I like seasonal swings in general. I look for them.

I still have an awful lot to learn being self taught at this. Heck I don't even understand some of the terms people on here are talking about.

Anyway thank you for the advice.

Now that it was mentioned a bit back. Risk management? Versatility of account is the best way I describe it. From what I read in forum here what I do is retarded. I like to keep around 90% of my account wrapped in margins, different markets of course. If it's a lot less there are 3 scenarios IMO.
I need more contracts on each trade.
There not many markets worth Tradeing.
I had a good month an time to pull some out.
Now back to versatility. Only in 8 right now. Some go up, some go down daily. I don't expect to make money on every trade. Just as many as possible LOL. I want to keep + trades @ 80% or better. I have one right now that is REALY kicking my behind. The rest can barely keep up to its loss. Well it my fault, I think I know this market fairly well an got in 3 days early. Should of got in Friday.
Anyhow I'm thinking by Monday morning it will be back to what I got in at, if not I Ill lick my wounds an bail. Either way got some more markets going into, plus some additional ones to existing trades. Guess I look at the month not the trade. However never make a trade I can't buy. I don't know if you call any of this risk management or not?
