The best Trading Vehicles have two characteristics that are paramount: Price and Liquidity.
If you're trading stocks, look for good liquid trading markets that are tight and fluid.
Bid and Ask quotes are narrow and close to the last trade. The quotes have depth to them and can accommodate large orders without disturbing the price.
All this results because of the competition between large numbers of market participants.
The opposite situation is present in thinly traded markets.
Lack of large numbers of market participants means quotes are wider and smaller in size, resulting in huge "slippage", choppy markets, and disappointing order executions.
If you can't get in or out of a given market with ease, you're in the wrong market.
If the trading crowd is not interested in a particular market neither should you.
Go where the action is.
