Some of you may be familiar with Don Miller ( Don Miller futures.io (formerly BMT) thread). Well he has something new that he is doing now called Trading After Dark. He is documenting trade sequences with video of his desktop and after the fact narration. It is a work in progress, but looks rather interesting.

Interesting thanks. What do people think his exact meaning of 'wholesale' entry vs 'retail' entry means?

I have not taken his course, but know someone that has. Don talks about "air", which just means you have moved away from a moving average, and so price will make its way back to the average (i.e. mean reversion). The wholesale/retail nomenclature is related in that wholesale is away from the avg and retail is near the avg.

It's good concept, I understand hes extremely busy, but he needs to post new content more often to keep people coming back.

After viewing Don Millers videos that I purchased at his retail price years ago I felt the need to comment on his upcoming "Jellie Program". I watched the videos 6 times to get as much as possible to give the benefit of any doubt that it was just another money maker for the vendor. Well, I was right! Total waste of money and mostly time of my precious life. I am 9 years into my trading career and I "rarely" say anything on any blogs or websites but. Buyer Beware of thinking your going to get any value of the Don Miller Jellie Program or video catalog.

Agree 100% with j7 - Don Miller is a waste of time and money. He means well and would like to educate folks but just doesn't have the knowledge to impart in a way that will help your trading.

Thete was an individual who researched Don Millers method - he claimed that Don made his Million/few million dollars in trading while the S&P was super volatile - but if you average his winners /reward - it materialized to something like 2 ticks.

If one can made money scalping 2 ticks in the S&P on a regular basis and with size - more power to you.

Same person laimed that once volatility faded - Don was NOT making money any longer.

Just my 2c

Well all anyone can do is guess except for Don but my understanding was that he put in limit orders around the market and averaged into big positions with anticipation of a mean reversion. My understanding was he used his ability to read the market to do this in a more skilful way then a purely mechanical approach and also held an exchange seat which reduced his cost basis.

The caveats with this approach is that you need a lot of capital to put on so many contracts and that occasionally you might get hit with a huge loss -- which he talked about. I think he once disputed the claim that his method wouldn't have been possible without member pricing but certainly one has to believe it helped.

Where did Don Miller go? He has not been on a blog or on YouTube for a long time. Does anyone know something?
