E-Mini Trading: The Latest and Greatest Indicator Has Arrived
For most of my career I was not exposed to the retail side of e-mini trading. To be sure, e-mini trading did not exist for the first half of my trading life. So when I exited my institutional trading career, I had to find my way with what existed as indicators/oscillators
Should You Day Trade?
Technology has made the world of Day Trading more accessible than ever, but just because you can day trade, should you? Several basic questions must be asked before this industry should even be considered.
5 Key Aspects of Technical Analysis

Let the stock chart and the 5 Key Aspects of Technical Analysis tell you how to trade the stock for optimal results.
Binary Options And Trading Software
Trading binary options is a rather new but one of the simplest investment strategies. You don’t have to be a finance guru to make some extra money, however, you still need to know what you are doing. Let’s look at the basics involving binary options trading and how to get started.
Why the Stock Market Didn’t React To Being “Rigged” and 10 Tips for the Average Trader and Investor
The stock market had a strong up day on moderate volume yesterday as the “Flash Boys” book and its author made the media circuit. The Institutions and professionals are yawning. More than 1/3 of the institutions queried said they did not believe it would scare off the average investor. They did mostly agree that it would ramp up some sort of SEC regulation and investigation but they know that the SEC has been investigating High Frequency Traders HFTs for a couple of years, ever since the Flash Crash of 2010.
High Frequency Trading Explained
High Frequency Trading has been in the news for several years, but recently media attention has escalated. High Frequency Trading firms are now the market participant everyone loves to hate. High Frequency Trading, which has become synonymous with high speed trading but not necessarily the same thing, has been the center of a heated debate that has divided market participant groups. The argument is whether these millisecond order transaction platforms are good or bad for the financial markets. People either believe the HFTs should be banned, or they believe they should be part of the market but regulated.
Adjusting Indicators for Downtrends
How fast the price will fall is dependent on many factors but the most important factor is always the number of High Frequency Traders that trigger the sell-off. The downtrend can drop with low volume, and can at times gap down through technical support levels. This is due to how and where the retail crowd and the smaller funds set their stop losses.
How Much Money Do I Need to Learn to Be an E-Mini Trader?
This is probably one of the critical problems that beginning e-mini traders face. Undercapitalization leaves a trader with very little “wiggle room” for errors while learning to trade. I’ve seen traders start with $2000 in the e-mini futures trading account and successfully build the account to a more workable size, but that is an extremely rare exception. No matter how much coaching and mentoring provided, e-mini trading is still an intensely personal road of discovery.
How Long Does It Take to Become a Competent and Consistent E-Mini Trader?
If there is a question that I am consistently asked when individuals inquire about my trading program it is “How long till I am making big bucks?” Conversely, if there is a question that is more impossible to answer it would be the same question.
3 Ways to Devastate and Blowout Your E-Mini Trading Account
The majority of my members make peace with trading through success; but there is a minority group of traders plow into e-mini trading like a Brahma bull in a china shop, usually against my advice. I firmly believe that all traders can achieve some level of success if they are willing to take the time and understand the trader’s mindset.
Volume and Support and Resistance Points in E-Mini Trading
As a long time e-mini Trader, I believe that volume is one of the most neglected variables in trading. Granted, the average trader does not have a wealth of information on volume trading at his or her disposal because volume has long been poorly understood or downright ignored.
What to Expect in Your First Month of E-Mini Trading
So you have decided to trade, either as a full time trader or as a hobby, then found someone who has the experience to teach you properly, and have been dreaming of untold riches trading the ES contract. You’ve funded your e-mini futures account with a tidy sum and are ready for your first real money trade. I want to point out from the onset that e-mini trading is not a get rich quick scheme; it takes training, discipline and a sense of logic that evades many new traders;
