Yes, it’s been a while as I focus this morning on resetting my own trading business and thank several traders including Linda Raschke, eminiplayer, and futurestrader71 for their direct and indirect support and insights as we work independently and together to further strengthen the trading community.
Other links I reference include futurestrader71′s outstanding presentation on Pro Trading Environments, as well as his site’s link to the Phantom of the Pits series which is a must- must- read if you’ve never done so before.
I also discuss two cosmetic changes I would make to “Chronicles …” if I had to do things over again, including the cover and subtitle.
My sincere thanks and best wishes to all of you as we continue our respective journeys.
Some have asked lately why trade Globex? Many have also said they’re “a-scared” of doing so.
As I’ve stated 1,000 times, the prime MATD entry on key prior day support typically occurs during the Europe session, and you have to simply do what others can’t, won’t, or don’t know how to do … as in putting in farmer’s hours if you’re in the U.S.
The ONLY three things keeping the small minority of successful traders who have figured this business from earning consistent income remain motivation, focus, and simply showing up when most others won’t.
Below is the YouTube audio to my recent presentation to the TopstepTrader team.
Please note however that the video isn’t tracking and is stuck on only a few slides (there are 18 in total), so you can download the PDF of the presentation here to track the visual content to the audio.
The presentation is just over an hour long.
Can anyone relate to this in their trading career or life?? (Hint, you have to watch to the very end.)
I sure can … every day.
Be that last elk!
Has fear and/or doubt overcome your trading … or your life?
And a gentle reminder as I mentioned in the book and blog throughout the last decade, that trading parallels life!
Keep this video handy … and PLEASE … listen to the words!
I reference it a lot … especially when I’m stuck in a rut of doubt.
And while faith alone won’t turn anyone – including me – into a super trader, it’s a wonderful reminder that fear and its source remain our common enemy.
So … as the song says … what are YOU waiting for???
Today’s video covers several topics, including the rationale of seeking a large-size ES trader, a screw-up by this trader, followed by two strong days, and a new “trade of the week” program designed to sharpen the focus and motivation for all with the winning trader receiving a copy of the 16-hour Jellie trader webinar series (or another gift of my choosing if you already have the series).
I’ll let the video do the rest of the talking, other than say “Cowboy up gang” … this is just the first of many sweeping advancements at this end as the market just begins to heat up.
Oh, and check out my new office “view” below the video as I recently tweeted. As I mentioned in the video, it’s actually a new wall mural to the right of my trading station.
There are serious life and trading undercurrents here. Watch until you find them, and we’ll chat soon.
