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???
