Master Trader Dec 12th Recap: 4 trades, 4+ points, 40 minutes

Being a market “Hitman” is in no small part about timing and ruthlessness of execution, but the volatility this fall has been somewhat disappointing. That is why, yesterday’s movement got me almost as excited as my coming trip to Colombia! Having said that, however, I was facing the dilemma of trading a contract roll-over day or missing out on some good follow-through movement. Tricky situation, I […]

Oct 16th Geezy Master Trader Recap: 2.25 Pts (Giant Leap In Trading)

ONE SMALL TRADE…ONE GIANT LEAP IN TRADING FOR ME How’s it going, DTA? Geezy here. I wanted to send in a very simple chart from October 16th. The trade on it is my absolute favorite. The V1 Strike. Nicknamed “strike”, because the entry point for it is right in the strike zone where the FYL Indicator is crossing the Midband. The chart show above shows one trade for +2.25 points, but its significance to me is as big as Neil Armstrong’s footprint […]

Below is a guest post from our resident master trader “Ice Man” on losing your focus and why you must keep it cool to take advantage of market momentum and subsequent opportunities. Enter Ice Man: Had a mid morning skate today so I missed about the first 45 minutes. Probably a good thing I did because I probably would have been expecting a continuation to […]

It only took twelve minutes in the market today to take advantage of the beautiful trending market to the downside.
