new to futures

Hi! Im new to futures trading,
I have been trading forex for a few years,
so I do have plenty of experience trading.
however, I don't know much about trading futures,
I was thinking to trade the US500 minis I hear so much about,
yeah I guess I don't know what to expect,
I guess there is something different.
forex lots, futures contracts, thats one thing
I have a demo acount with Velocity, X-trader
which I don't even know how to operate LOL
so maybe I have a long way to go?
Well, for some, Forex is the most complex instrument to trade...!

If you have experience trading forex, I guess you´ll be ok with futures.

Take care!
Trading GC is my favorite, it trends much better than the indexes.
