Well I would not trade his course it is to risky and just going fishing or buying break outs what might appear tops and bottoms with futures contracts is risky. I assume you are or will be trading strictly from some kind of electronic platform. Or through your broker by phone?
Also I would highly recommend you learn option trading to enhance your trading tool box with other trading strategies.
I also recommend you keep a sharp eye on Trades post here and pay attention to his charts and what he has to say about them. You can learn a lot from him.
