I wanted to post this video earlier but I was ravaging through the country of Peru.  There is only one more country left to travel to in South America which is Ecuador.  I remember meeting Mahad like it was yesterday, it was my very first night in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, and I wanted to party like it was 1999. He showed me around the city and introduced me to some Ethiopian customs like chewing chat (click here if you […]

June 6th Live Market Class Recap

Today was another phenomenal day in the market for us and I wanted to try something a little different for the last few days by sharing student charts.  I just ended the class blitz where I hosted a serious of classes for everyone in the training program and it couldn’t have ended on a better note. Tomorrow is contract rollover day which means that the contracts change.  If you want a better understanding of that means check out the day trading eminis where […]

June 5th Live Market Class Recap

June 5th Live Market Class Recap

Welcome to the first official recap of June!  Today I want to try something a little bit different and share the results of the live class that we had on June 5th.  I also plan on sharing the results from our June 6th class. I do things a little differently when it comes to training because I have had the unfortunate circumstance of being sold into the industry and I have also had the fortunate opportunity of being inside the industry.  Since […]

Day Trading & Traveling: Brazil Edition

My emini day trading and traveling around the world has brought me to the last country I am going to live in South America, Brazil.  There is more than one goal at hand when I arrived in Brazil, it’s not only to experience the culture & people (ahem women) but also to see the possibility of opening a day trading center here.  The middle class in Brazil is exploding and the Brazilian market will soon be as big as the current market […]

The Death Of Tradestation

The Death Of Tradestation

I have been day trading eminis for almost 10 years now and with the recent questions I have been getting I wonder if people really know my actual age or when I actually started day trading.  I have seen an enormous shift in this industry with one day trading company spawning various methods and strategies, both good and bad. I started day trading at what would be considered the dawn of a new age when it comes to day trading eminis, click here to learn about […]

Sprint Training: What Is It & Why It's So Effective

Sprint Training: What Is It & Why It's So Effective

Sprint training is one of the techniques that I use as part of the training program in order to both improve the education and also make it more effective. The idea is to have short bursts of training and then a rest period followed by another burst of training. This is the model that I live my life by in order to never get bored and also stay motivated and focused. By nature, and thanks to the fathers of my generation, I […]

April Results Are Here! 2.19 Points A Day - 75% win ratio

Finally! I was getting a little tired of telling people that the year to date results for my day trading strategy was through March.  I was tired of telling people that the average win throughout the year was 1.97 points. Luckily, I was sadly mistaken as the average for the month of February was 1.97 points. The actual year to date results through March was 2.35 points a day  The April results are promptly reported on Brazilian time as I have formally […]

Teatro Municipal Rio De JanieroTeatro Municipal Rio De Janiero

Welcome to the Blitz everyone!  What I have decided to do is have a two week class blitz for everyone in the training program because of the Internet problems I have had here in Rio de Janeiro. I have had a very exciting two months in the city but unfortunately my Internet has been very subpar. Thanks third world! I’m going to record many of the classes as I usually do for all the traders that are in the training program around […]

May 4th Recap: Bundas & 20 Points ($10,000 Available)

May 4th Recap: Bundas & 20 Points ($10,000 Available)

That is the view from my temporary office as I write this recap.  I am in a small town in southern Brazil called Florianopolis that is known for gorgeous beaches and well, gorgeous woman.  You didn’t think I was coming here just for the beach did you? Today was the kind of day that makes traders take weeks off.  I left a lot on the table but it didn’t matter because I was still able to make close to 20 points.  For […]
