1) What Size account balance do
I need to follow the Daytraderís Bulletin Signals?
If you are trading the full S&P 500 contract, a $10,000 account minimum is usually required (by your broker) to trade one intraday contract. Brokers requirements vary, but you are better off with a larger account.
These are rough estimates and considerable variation exists among trading houses. Call your broker or futures commission merchant for their margin requirements.
For the e-mini S&P, you could trade contract sets of 3 with an account size of $10,000 or less (again, the larger account size is better psychologically).
For the large S&P, you would need a minimum $30,000 account, and then could trade our standard 3-contract set, although we recommend a $75,000 account due to our stop loss size.
2) Iím a beginning trader. Should
I use the Daytraderís Bulletin Signals?
We advise everyone, however, to become very familiar with the Overnight Update and the Signals. The Signals should be viewed while monitoring the contract(s) price action in real time. This will give you a feel for our procedures and techniques. It is critical for everyone using our service to read these FAQs and The Guide.
3) How much profit can I expect to make
trading a 3-contract set?

5) Why do you trade the S&P 500 so
frequently and the other futures so infrequently?
7) If too many people subscribe to the
Daytraderís Bulletin Signals, wonít that have a negative effect on getting
reasonable fills at your buy and sell points?
We compare this projected price movement to profiles weíve developed and compare that range to the actual price and volume action. Our subscriberís base aggregate equity is not sufficient to control market action one way or the other.
If the actual price and volume movement goes ďout of boundsĒ a certain percentage of the time, we can assume our recommendations are affecting current liquidity. This hasnít happened and because of the limitations on our number of subscribers, we are certain we can control this potential problem.
8) Why do you only offer a 4-day
9) I can't hear the sounds when a
new Real-Time Signal is broadcast.
Unfortunately, one of the components you do not get unless you choose the full install is the sound file plug-in. If you find yourself in this situation, we have compiled detailed instructions to remedy the situation. We do not know of any similar problems with any other browsers.
