Trading Results 8/26, 8/27, & 8/28

August 28th, 2014

Well today only took 3 trades and of course they were all NQ winners to reach our daily profit. The ES slow and sideways action did not trigger a trade for us. The 1st 6E was a loser followed by a very nice trade but unfortunately we were not filled and it was cancelled. The CL did have a loser. As mentioned yesterday, stay tuned for our announcement next week about the NQ market. It is a very strong market and unlike the ES, it moves NICELY even in this low volume environment. In any event, we will be back in the trading room tomorrow morning and we will take a look at the volume. With Labor day on Monday, we are expecting a very lackluster day trading tomorrow so we may just sit on the sidelines and resume on Tuesday.

Wednesday August 27th
A GREAT morning trading today and batteld back after yesterday’s rough day. Our 1st 4 trades were all winners and we walked away after only 20 minutes in the market. We had 3 winners on the NQ and 1 on the ES. The 6E even had 2 winners as well. The CL did take a trade late which ended up a loser but a profitable day. As most of you already know, the CL market is more of a long term growth market and most including myself do not count that market into our daily profit income. It will not take a trade every day so I personally set up a 2nd trading account that will just trade the crude market. I can then look at it at the end of the month and see what it does for me. It is up pretty nice over the last year and that is what I like to see. IN any event, we have an exciting announcement next week about the NQ market that you do not want to miss. Stay tuned :)

Tuesday August 26th
Well It was one of those days again…slow and nothing going on in the afternoon to recover. We started the day with 2 winners on the NQ followed by a loser late in the morning. In between those trades were 2 losers on the ES. The 1st 6E trade cancelled followed by a loser. Even the CL had a couple losers as well. These are the days where you have to keep your emotions in check and stick with the rules. Every day cannot be a nice easy trading day where you make money and you are done in 30 minutes or less. Day like today brings you back to reality a bit and keeps everything in focus. We do not see a lot of days like this as you can see from the several months of blog posts but it will happen. We simply put it behind us and come back the next day and get it back which we will do tomorrow :)

Today’s Trading Results!

August 25th, 2014

Well I hope you all had a great weekend. We were back to work today and it was slow but very profitable. We only had 1 trade on the NQ and 1 trade on the ES this morning but both winners. I did come back in the afternoon and grabbed one trade 10 minutes in which was a nice NQ winner and put me over my daily profit goal. The 1st 6E was a winner in which we had to exit early for the report while the 2nd trade never happened based on our rules with time. The CL did have 1 trade that was a winner so a very nice day all around. We will be back at it tomorrow.

Trading Results Past 3 Trading Days

August 24th, 2014

It was only a matter of time where we would see a little more volume in the market and it was helped by Yellen speaking. We took advantage and winner after winner this morning. Most of us stopped after 2 winning NQ trades and another winner on the ES. That was enough to exceed our daily goal. Come to find out we left money on the table because we saw numerous winners after we stopped and there is nothing wrong with that. It’s all about discipline and sticking to your daily goals and being successful. The 6E did not have any trades today while the CL had 1 very small winner where we had to exit because of report. All in all for as slow it has been not a terrible week and today was a 35 minute work day. Have a great weekend and we will see everyone on Monday. Also be on the lookout of a webinar next week ….that’s all I can say right now :)

Well a lot easier day today then yesterday. Only needed 2 NQ trades to reach daily goal and wrapped it up in less than 30 minutes. The 1st 6E was a winner while the 2nd one lost.

Well another day of grinding. We didn’t have any trades on the ES this morning and 3 on the NQ with 2 of them being losers. I came back in the afternoon and had 5 trades that were all winners. While I did not profit much on the day, I recovered what I lost which I was happy with trading the NQ & ES. The 1st trade on the 6E was a loser while the 2nd one cancelled. The CL we had 1 trade that we had to exit early on because of the report but ended up with a decent winning trade. In any event, we will look to rebound tomorrow and finish off the week on Friday.

August 20th, 2014

The Dog days of summer and we are seeing it firsthand especially the start of this week. Looking back to yesterday we did not have 1 valid trade on the ES market and you will not see that often. It is extremely slow. Today nit much different. We had a couple small winners on the NQ before we left the trading room at 10:15. I did happen to come back this afternoon for a half hour and again no trades so I called it a day. The 6E had 2 trades very early this morning but unfortunately for us neither of them filled before going on to win. Crude started off the October contract smoking. Before we began to trade the CL this morning, we looked at the volume and it was clearly heavy on the October contract by a rate of 53k to only 19k on the September one so that told us to trade it. It had 2 winners today and again only trading 2 contracts you would have been up $480.00 :) We will be back here tomorrow and hoping for a little more volume to make a little money.

August 18th, 2014

As most of you know from the last post, we were teaching at our Live event last week so we could not post the results as frankly I was not trading live. We came back today and frankly it was VERY slow as I am sure you could see. We had 2 trades on the NQ this morning and only 1 more this afternoon. The good thing is that they were all winners but nothing to write home about. The 6E market was flat and we did not have a trade based on our rules. The CL is rolling over to the next month so we sat on the sidelines and may do so again tomorrow depending how that looks. Have a great night and we will be back at it tomorrow

Results 8/7 and 8/9

August 13th, 2014

Friday August 8th
Wow, what a brutal day. As you know we tell it like it is although our results are very good we do not win every day. If you are looking to learn a system and you see nothing but winners, don’t walk BUT run the other way. You will see a lot of that online BUT not here. Today was just one of those days that not much went right…in fact most of this week. I would have to put this past week as one of the worse weeks I have seen and trading this system but I still have 100% faith in it and I will not change anything. The past 11 months of results speak for themselves. IN any event, I will put the trades for today below and next week we will not be posting our results as we will be in class teaching at our Live event in Jacksonville Florida. I will try and post the 6E and CL when I get back if I get a consensus from the students trading those 2 markets. Have a great week and we will see you back here on August 18th.

A little bumpy start to the morning but we got it all back and ended up profitable all in the first 30 minutes of market open. For only the 8th time in the last 11 months, Both 6e trades did lose today. Tomorrow we will not be trading the 6E based on our rules so we will resume back on Friday with that market. As far as the CL, well it had another winner today….I know we say the CL market is for longer term growth but it is doing very well as of late. In any event we will be back tomorrow and hope it’s a profitable one.

Trading Results 8/1 & 8/4

August 4th, 2014

A rough morning today. We ended up with 4 NQ trades and 2 ES losers this morning. I had to come back in the afternoon to recover and pretty much did so. We only had 4 trades this afternoon but they were all winners. As far as the 6E well I was in a trade for 2 hours…yes I said 2 hours. It was insane and I couldn’t look at the computer anymore so I got out at BE. Obviously there wasn’t a 2nd trade after that :) The CL did not have a trade today but did have a nice month in July so hoping to keep that going in August. I will post the trades below and we will see you back here tomorrow

A pretty decent day today as we were done in 45 minutes from markets opening. First and foremost I must tell you about the NQ market yesterday. Well we had 34 Valid trades and you know what…every one of them was a winner. I know it’s crazy but it happened and if 1 were to run the NQ all day trading 3 contracts, they could have been up close to $1500.00. Of course you are not going to see that every day but the NQ is a great market to trade :) Back to today, we had 2 losing NQ trades and 2 winners. On the ES we had 2 really nice winners that made our day. The 1st 6E trade was a loser while the 2nd one cancelled. The CL did not have a trade. We hope you all have a great weekend and we will be back on Monday.

Today’s Results and Previous 11 months totals!

July 31st, 2014

A decent morning today to close out the month. We had 3 winners on the NQ with 1 winner and 1 loser on the ES. The 1st 6E trade was a small winner while the 2nd trade we had to exit early for a report and broke even. As I am typing this blog post, the CL did not have a trade so I will update that tomorrow if it does. I wanted to get this post up before I left for the day. Also there are only 12 hours left to purchase either the 6E (EuroFX) or CL (Crude Oil) Auto Trader’s at the introductory price of $1295.00 for an annual license! The new price is scheduled to be raised tomorrow August 1st to $1495.00 each with the special combo price of $2495.00! You can click on the link above that says “Automated Trading” for additional info. Have a great day and we will be back tomorrow. Please see below for the updated past 11 months results…not too bad as I am sure you will agree :)

July 30th, 2014

Fomc day…typically a very choppy day and as I now look at the markets from this morning indeed it was. I had an appointment at 10:00 to be at so I did not trade the NQ or ES Live. That being said, Fomc days are usually good to book dr’s or any other appointments for that matter and not even trade. Just as my post back on July 18th where I did not trade that day either. I try to stay away if possible trading live these days for the most part. In any event Based on our 1st 6E trade winner this morning, through the emails I received quite a few didn’t trade the NQ & ES because they hit their daily goal. The 2nd 6E trade did cancel while the CL had 1 trade which was good for a small winner. We will be back to trading the NQ & ES on Thursday so we will see you then.
