Looks like your open positions are coming along nicely! I downloaded TT Trader, the ETrade futures platform recently and have been learning how to use it.

It's a bit overwhelming - about 8 windows open at once and there seems to be about ten different ways to do everything.

One thing I'm disappointed about is that they don't seem to have long term charts - all I've found so far is charts for the current day. The system seems to be geared towards day traders.

Would you recommend any websites for charts? Futuresource charts seem pretty good. Also, do you have any tips on which exchange may be better to use?

Thanks in advance ... I've been enjoying your blog and intend to keep following it.
