In the continuing win-win spirit of educating traders at minimal cost and continuing our support of charities, readers of Chronicles of a Million Dollar Trader can receive $250 off the timeless Jellie Webinar Series, while benefiting needy children via World Vision.

Today’s video sheds some fervent light on tapping into our true potential.

We are ALL diamonds currently undergoing polishing.

Have a great trading week!!

P.S. One footnote is that the 5pm ET timeframe I reference near the beginning reflects the closing of the RTH futures market. The traditional RTH equity close is typically 4pm ET.

For those who missed it, here’s a summary of yesterday’s catcher’s mitt trade narration posted live on Twitter as it was developing and executing.

Please read from the bottom up in sequence.

Given I talk about it quite often and it’s one of my staple trading sequences, I hope you find it useful!

After some adjustments to accommodate conflicting schedules, I’m pleased to announce that the dates for the 2016 Jellie trader training session have been set for Monday-Friday May 9-13.

For those unfamiliar with the weeklong live session, it will once again be offered via streaming media, so you can attend from the comfort of your own trading office.

In addition to the legacy material and syllabus we’ve used over the past six years, we’ll also be incorporating some incremental material and program expansion including Globex ETH monitoring, catcher’s mitt trades, volume profile, and the F6 delta chart. Additional detail describing the program intent, history, tuition, prior participant feedback, and prerequisite webinars can be found on our educational site or links in the right hand margin including our past jellie guest posts.

As always, participation will remain limited to a small group to ensure a quality and in-depth experience for all.

Please email me at if you’re interested.

P.S. And yes, toward the end I really did say I love and forgive Jon Corzine!

Don’s Q2 Goals

By Don Miller · Comments Comments Off

Dear Diary,

As I try to quickly transition to a Q2 mindset, I feel I need to improve formally documenting and tracking to my goals. So here they are, listed in order of personal significance.

Frankly, if I just accomplish 1a and 1b, I’ll consider it a monumental quarter … the rest are simply guides and motivators.

1a. Love more.
1b. Reflect far more of God and far less of self.
2. Talk and tweet less, and only if necessary, kind, and true.
3. Finish reading book in progress (Imagine Heaven) and target two others.
4. Continue New England Emmaus Board leadership efforts including Spring Walk participation.
5. Complete weight loss program, attaining target weight of 178.5 from 203 starting point.
6. Sustain new weight level; Close quarter < 180 lbs on 6-30.

Trading Goals:

7. 100% profitable weeks & months.
8. Incur maximum six draw days in approx. 60 trading days (2 per month; <10%).
9. Optimize targeted capital preservation/growth mix (<5 years to 60!) via earnings no less than $200k w/$400k stretch goal.
10. Attain minimum of four $25k days, two $50k days, and one $100k day.
11. Increase maximize ES trading size to 300 contracts.
12. Reduce transaction costs by 25%.

A Special TGIF

By Don Miller · Comments Comments Off


It’s an acronym all too-often spoken in our secular world to reflect the winding down and temporary end to a week of our hard labor, as well as anticipation of a weekend of R&R.

Yet today is of course different for God’s family of believers … in many eternal ways.

Instead of celebrating our own labor, today we recognize our Lord’s labor of sacrifice for us which will far surpass anything we will ever endure. And instead of winding down, on this day those many years ago, his work was just beginning.

Yet we can certainly anticipate Sunday when the clouds of life are once again lifted and God’s abundant gifts of love and redemption are made clear and freely available to us all.

Yes, we can thank God today is Friday. Not for the temporary end of our own work, but for the permanent end of sin and death for everyone who chooses to accept such an incredible – and free – gift.

Wishing all a reflective weekend as we approach the anniversary of the most important “trade” ever made. Back on the flip side.
