To be able to make money day trading a certain amount of capital is required–yes, it does take money to make money.  The E-mini Futures markets provides some of the highest volume markets in the world and some of the lowest requirements to get started.  There is a great amount of movement and E-mini Futures markets are also higher leveraged.   This means that for every $1 USD that the market moves we make between $50 to $250 USD.  Most of our traders use the E-mini markets to make a full time income in about two hours a day. Certainly beats eight hours in an office, plus commute.
