You're asking the impossible. There's no cutting to the chase in becoming a Navy Seal, a fighter pilot, or a pro golfer, and it's no different in trading. You have to find, develop, and hone your own setups. Takes time. Lots of it. Not easy but can be done. It starts in you.

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

why are you listed as advanced and ask that question?

what do you need protection from and why do you assume 'day trading' or a 'setup' will give you protection?


cut to the chase?....sure

read 'phantom of the pits' and use his method when in a drawdown...


boom done.....that's all you need buddy

best of luck!

This is a very good field guide on trading. Started reading it a few days ago. This might help you. Just know there is no shortcut, only ways you can choose to help yourself.

Trading is not for you. Just close your account and move on.

Trading is only for people that are disciplined, know how to do their own research and homework, and understand the importance of learning.

People that expect to be shown everything will simply fail.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

The best setup I found is to go long/short before the big bar that goes up/down




But seriously, either take Mike's advice and move on to something else, or get serious about it and realize there is no Holy Grail. There are dozens of futures.io (formerly BMT) webinars available to you, I suggest you start there if you haven't been scared off.

Hi Naples,

You will need to invest time, start with the expectation that it may be 6 months or a year before you should be trading live (at a small position size).

If I were to suggest a starting point, then buying the book 'trade your way to financial freedom' by Van Tharp may be helpful. If you do take this advice, I would also add that you should read every chapter, don't skip any that may not appear to be of interest to begin with. There are of course many other good books and learning resources, including this site, this is just one I found particularly helpful.

Good luck & cheers,
Shane
