Easter IslandAhu Tongariki - The most popular of all the Moai Status on Easter Island

5 Fatal Mistakes That Day Traders Make

I have been teaching traders now for roughly 8 out of the near 10 years of my trading career.  I have seen people instantly start trading live in a matter of weeks and others that have seen their savings disappear in a matter of years. In the end, there are only a handful of reasons why you aren’t a professional day trader yet. Day trading eminis isn’t the easiest thing in the world because if it was everyone would be doing it.  […]

Governador ValadaresThe city of Governador Valadares

Phew! What a great day to come back to the markets.  I was busy exploring the interior of Brazil over the weekend and had the opportunity to stay the weekend at a favela. Fa-ve-la: A shantytown or slum, especially in Brazil Aside what you are thinking, when I day trade & travel I prefer to explore these neighborhoods instead of staying at 5 star resorts because this is where you find the real people in a country, real personality. When I travel it […]

July 20th Recap: 12.25 Points in a 3-4 Point Range

Today is one of those days where I approached the market very cautiously due to options expiration week, and more importantly, options expiration day which happens to be today. Whenever we have options expiration week we have seen the market behave in an erratic manner which means we need to be aggressive with our exits to ensure that we lock in profit. The market typically doesn’t run on days like today.  The premarket today started off very strong to the downside which […]

July 17th Live Market Class Recap: 4.5 – 6.5 Pts Available

One of the most important concepts that we talked about on July 17th in the live class was momentum.  It is so important to be able to understand the micro momentum and know when to go long and short and also the macro momentum in order to understand when to be aggressive and conservative.  One of the biggest problems that I see in people’s trading is not being able to make the switch, today was a day that started off straight to […]
