I feel the exact opposite as you. I prefer to day trade, and have a system that works well with it.
Yes, the grains have had some tough to find set ups, but my last 5 trades were all small winners averaging about $55.00. All were in the grains. If you are working with 50K, and trade as many contracts as you can with that, you are looking at a $Grand or so + in profits on every trade. Several of those trades occurred in a 90 second or so time span. The rest were mere minutes.
I don't like long term trend trading, because there is no way to know the future. We can't predict anything. The only thing we can do is wait untill the market is doing something, and jump on.
