200 ticks per month ES, NQ, YM

Is there anyone that makes 200 ticks per month, just about every month trading ES and/or NQ and/or YM?

I have never met anyone that is doing that and I would like to SEE that it is possible...in reality.

Anyone?

I'm a bit confused by your post to be honest. Are you asking if there are any traders that make 200(ticks) x $12.50(per tick value) = $2500.00/mo trading ES? So are you wondering if it is possible to make $2500.00/mo trading ES? If so the answer is, yes.

As an example see @Big Mike post here for the month of November 2014 trading from his cell phone while on vacation https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/1415-big-mike-s-day-trading-method-advice-28.html#post458028

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

"Ticks per month" isn't a metric I've previously encountered, but it seems a perfectly legitimate one. Anyway, there are clearly many members here averaging 10+ ticks per trading day on ES and/or NQ and/or YM. (Some of them are even doing so while taking TST Combines and posting daily accounts of every trade, together with copies of account reports, in their Journals here.)

I use ticks per month because so many traders make 10+ ticks on Tuesday and lose 10+ ticks on Wednesday. Or they do week for 3 days and then give it all back.

I have never seen anybody make 200+ ticks per month consistently. Nobody wants to show that they have. Only "say" they have.

Will anyone who makes 200+ ticks per month step forward?

That's why Tymbeline used the word "averaging"

That gives you the overall sense as to whether you're profitable or not

I am asking if anyone will show that they are consistently making 200+ ticks per month day trading. So many people say they are but I have not seen one person show it. I am not sure why someone who is successful would hide it. Most professionals, like golfers, show their score card. In fact they play in front of a live audience. Why do traders not show the results? So I am asking if anyone will show it?

Thank you for the thread. I will read it.

I understand. But will anyone show it? Are there any threads I have missed where someone is doing it? Not just saying it. Or saying it is possible. But actually proving that in writing or posts. Will anyone?

Perhaps you missed my post. I have quoted it above for you here. Click the link to @Big Mike 's trade journal post dated December 4th 2014. Here he has posted his November IB statement where he made well over a 1000 ticks on ES in just November trading while on vacation on a cruise ship from his cell phone without his "regular" charts and the like. His journal is full of post like this all thought he has since stopped posting his trades now for a number of reasons. So once you land on this post and study it then go backward and you will find much more like this only with much larger total per month ticks.

I am reading it now. Do you know if it was daytrading while on a cruise or was it a buy and hold investing trade?

Also, any other months or just one month? I am looking for consistent, proven results.
