Archive for The Weekend Trader

A good week of reinforcement that the trading fish are best “biting” far outside of the U.S. RTH session, and a call to Europe traders.

The Weekend Trader – Trading After Dark & Market Update

Posted by: Don Miller | Comments Comments Off

Today’s video further clarifies the Trading After Dark effort and discusses last week’s market action and opportunities, all of which reinforced the concept of optimal trading times outside of the U.S. RTH cowboy session.

Continued thanks to all involved in our evolving “virtual prop shop”, which as I reference we’ll likely be closing to the public shortly to retain a sense of focus and aggression.

In addition, while I don’t reference it on the video, please note we’ve updated all of the Jellie webinar files to mp4 files for those interested in use across multiple platforms.

Have a great trading week!

Today’s video explores lessons learned while off the grid, this week’s reinforcement of prime trading times (think Europe!), and the fast-moving evolution of the Trading After Dark community.

Links referenced in the video include the Deep Work book and the Trading After Dark overview datasheet.

Uplifting message for the day: Do what other traders won’t, can’t, or don’t know how to do!

Expanding & Kicking Off a Trading After Dark Community

Posted by: Don Miller | Comments Comments Off

While I hadn’t planned on following up this quickly to yesterday’s conceptual video, feedback and additional thought provokes today’s follow-up including the expansion of the “Trading After Dark” concept to include end-of-day recaps, next-day planning, scorecard reviews, team encouragement, and more in addition to the U.S. – Asia – Europe market transition opportunities referenced yesterday.

I’m looking to kick things off on Monday, so again please email me at don@donmillereducation.com if you’re interested in participating.

Sunday 5:30pm Update: Here’s the updated datasheet on the effort.

In today’s video, I discuss more fully incorporating SPY and/or SPX options into my 2017 trading goal list and portfolio, and reach out to those of you who have been actively doing so for additional insights.

Today’s video encourages all of us to consider the objective data provided by our 2016 trading results as both a candid performance review as well as guide for future improvement.  I also encourage all of us to consider joining a small trading (or life!) accountability group to further keep us on track.

Also, a reminder to please let me know if you’re interested in participating in the 2017 live Jellie trader trading effort, which will be held in either February or March depending on participant interest and schedule. If you’re interested, please email me at don@donmillereducation.com.

Lastly, and as noted in the video, we are truly honored and humbled to have been selected as the flagship trading educational program at tradingcourses.online.

The Continuing Trader – Closing a Chapter

Posted by: Don Miller | Comments Comments Off

Please note if the video below starts in the middle, restart it to the beginning. Thanks.

Tonight’s post closes the current chapter in this trader’s public life, while putting the last decade of sims, diaries, books, posts, videos, and tweets in perspective.

It also marks a personal revision to my Chronicles & Twitter Avatar as shown on the right, to one that emphasizes reflection more than success … which may be very ironic since I don’t expect to tweet much in the future. As I’ve said in the past, I’ve always struggled a bit with the initial cover, although success, celebration, and positive emotion is and should indeed be part of the business.

I’ve learned over the last 55 years never to say never, so let’s just call it closing a chapter.

In the meantime, a reminder that there is a wealth of educational information contained on this site which can be accessed via the top menu or other page links, including the initial diary (be sure to check the key post index in the lower left margin!), some of my favorite postsformal trader educational tools, six episodes of the Trading After Dark series, and more.

As for me, I intend to continue to hone my trading and life skills as long as God gives me breath, as well as continue to grow and evolve much like the jellyfish we all strive to become.

May God bless all of you in your pursuits, and may we all strive to love, uplift, and inspire.

Until we meet again.
