Looking to get into Futures Trading

Hello fellas.
I am looking to getting into day trading futures.
Read a lot about it and it sounds super interesting and something I would love to begin doing and perhaps get into it full time in the future (pun intended)

I have gone through a ton of videos on how to make my first trade, or how to trade futures for beginners, but it seems non of these videos and webinars are really showing you how to physically do everything (form finding a broker to actually making the first trade)

All the videos are show/explaining is either what future trading is, or they simply just straight to a chart and a live trade.

Personally I have no knowledge on how to read these charts, how to analyse these charts, how to even find the stocks/futures that are being traded, and so on.

I am what you would call a full out beginner/noob when it comes to trading futures.

I do have stocks I am invested in but that is totally different from day trading.

Where do I begin? Where can I find ALL the knowledge I need to literally start doing this on my own?

Thanks a lot!

Cheers.

Call up any broker and open account. Deposit money and then place bets. The more money you bet, the quicker you learn, it's that simple. If you bet nothing and use a demo account, you learn nothing.

Maybe your existing stock broker has a side business in futures, ask them first.

have a play on a demo account because you at least need to know what the buttons do..

EDIT: I just reaslised you are in Canada so im not sure what brokers you need off the top of my head

Do you have $10,000 (or equivalent) to put into a futures trading account?

I do have that amount, however was under the impression an amount of such is not needed. Why did you specifically ask about this amount?
