if they are trading those kinds of contracts they do need a good amount of coin and many will try with insufficient funds. i know what you mean. i just thought you were talking generally. i dont want to give people hope of trading contracts too big for them
Best markets to learn to trade are liquid markets otherwise you will have to worry about the spread. Also, liquid markets will give TA guys far more opportunities.
My advice is to get good job and then learn on the side and then slowly start putting some of that cash to work.
Just remember the psychology of a guy with a small account, they are often looking to get rich quick and those accounts blow up very quick.
