Meet Jonathan! One of these successful members of the LTD Project that we plan on highlighting over the next few months. Jonathan has been focusing on trading the Emini S&P 500 at has also started to focus on the 6E.  One of the things that we admire about Jonathan is his discipline and focuse. We would never recommend anyone trading their own account live before they find consistency on a simulation account. When we first discussed Jonathan joining the LTD Project he […]

Feb 25th Recap: Over $4,000 – THE MARKET IS BACK!

stock market volumeThe market volume for the last year

Were you invited to the party? The market at the end of last week spiked with the level of volume that we haven’t seen in over a year. A trader is responsible for identifying different kinds of market environments. A high volume high volatility market is definitely his favorite. With straight-line runs of over eight and nine points the opportunities are truly endless when we have this kind of market. There were times within the last year were only one or two […]

Feb 22nd Recap: Over $1800 Avail – Thank you FOMC


This is what the FOMC statements used to do, bring back the volume and volatility in the market. Many traders as soon as a year ago used to trade the afternoon session during the FOMC statement. The markets have been in a lull for the better part of eight months. The United States and most of the global economy has been stagnant since the initial crisis of 2001.  After the additional crisis in 2008 things got even worse and we haven’t officially […]

Day Trading From 15,000 Feet With Gogo Inflight Internet (Feb 20th Recap)

gogo inflight internet

If anyone would have told us that day trading was possible from a plane at 15,000 feet it would have been assumed impossible. Then again if someone told me I would be day trading and traveling around the world they would be presumed fanatical as well. It would be easy to fathom having problems finding reliable Internet in places like Somaliland and Ethiopia (mostly Ethiopia from our experience). Africa would be the last frontier for reliable Internet access outside of North Korea […]

Feb 13th Recap: Over $2,000 – Sushi in NYC is Amazing Edition

sushi in new york cityA foreign object that looks very distasteful but was delicious!

If there’s one thing that I miss about day trading in India it was eating food. When it was time to eat we were always concerned about getting sick afterwards (read our day trading & India travel blog) There is no nice way to say this but it is not an exaggeration. I tossed out my food (from both ends) more in the two months in India than I have in the last 15 years.  I know what you are thinking and […]

Feb 11th Recap: Over $2,000 – Knowing When To Quit

Times Square New York CityTimes Square New York City

Sometimes we win some and other times we lose some.  The market started off beautifully on Monday with two nice winners. Considering that the market was moving very well it was decided to continue trading. The wrong decision in a week where the volume would begin to slow. It was unusual to see the market moving so well first thing in the morning lately. We have been seeing unusual behavior in the Emini S&P 500 for the first hour or two of […]

Another LTD Project Member Is Going Live TodayMilitary Training with Kenneth in Manizales, Colombia

The learning how to day trade project has been nothing short of amazing.  A few years ago we embarked on a quest to truly comprehend what it would take to become a day trader. There were endless questions of how long it took, what it would cost, and whether personalities and backgrounds would matter. The learning how to day trade project was also about giving someone else the opportunity to live their dreams. This is another reason why we rented the Jordan […]

Feb 8th Recap: $2,000 Available – NYC Blizzard Edition

Blizzard in New YorkBlizzard in New York

Last but not least is the final recap for the first full week of February. The week was truly a tale of extremes. Something that comes very familiar from visiting India and living in the country for just over two months. Friday brought about the blizzard of the century and aside from being the end of the week it seems as if the blizzard is what took the volume of the market. The blizzard did not end up being that bad in […]

Feb 7th Recap: Over $7,000 Available – The Tale of the Pro Trades

BarranquillaMr. M tearing up the dance floor at the Carnival in Barranquilla

It has been nothing but extremes in the first full week of February. From a $8,000 day on Monday followed by a $1,125 on Tuesday and now a $7,000 day on the 7th. While those numbers sound fantastic we don’t think of the market in terms of dollars and cents. Those people that trade with and for the DTA Trading Army think in terms of points and ticks. The concept here is to understand that the ultimate focus is to make the […]

Feb 6th Recap: Over $1125 – Moving Day!

Taj Mahal Palace and HotelTaj Mahal Palace and Hotel in Mumbai

It is moving day! After a 22 hour journey from the extremes of India we have finally arrived in one of the financial capital of the world, New York City. It’s been a unique few years being able to day trade from exotic locations like Brazil, Colombia, India, and even Argentina. We were able to day trade from London when we hosted our first day trading retreat (seminar). We are now at one of the largest and iconic financial centers in the […]
