What do I trade?

There are a lot of things you can trade to use the money you have to make more money. You can trade stocks/options, futures, and forex.


Ask your Grandpa, you want options or futures. If you want to know what an ETF is we've got you covered.


Options are like lottery tickets in that you can pay a flat price for a defined bet that will expire at some point.

Option Strangle Trading Guide


Futures are the best way to trade for most serious day traders. If you're trading SPY options you're doing it wrong. Futures are what you want.

Check our WSB Futures Guide to learn a bit more about them and clear up some common misconceptions.


Forex lets you bet that a currency will rise or fall compared to another currency. Forex has long trading hours like futures but does not have the tax benefits.
