  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

My journal with BTTFT

After 14 webinars by Michael from Back To The Future Trading, a week in the trading room with Ron and 1 successful TF trade for 14 ticks I sent my payment today to sign up with BTTFT.

Within the hour I received a welcome email, a download email, an email from customer support and email containing a link for 7 getting acquainted emails. Then I received a voice mail from Customer Support asking if I needed any help.
So far so good. Loading the indicators went smoothly. The only conflict was with GOTOMeeting. When we ditched that and spoke on phone things went smoothly. After about an hour Ninja was all set up ready to go.

It is my intent to document my trades and experience with this software package. I was amazed (therefore I bought) its seemingly predictive indicators. Missed a 5.5 point TF trade setup today. Enter at 1044.0 with limit order at 8:59. Exit at 1049.5 with trail stop limit order at 9:53.

Looking forward to my new tool

Getting Started with BTFFT

Missed the weekend for the grand kids. Did a lot of catching up and learning yesterday and today.

Like any new system, indicator or trading technique "Back To The Future Trading" system with their FLUX tools has been a ton of work. New terminology, new indicators, new pattern reading. The worse part is it takes so much concentration to "play along" I forget about the good ole stuff I have learned over the years. I know it is only time until this becomes intuitive because there is not much to it. But most importantly I am finally trading times and places not each and every bar.

Ron's morning run through is extremely thorough. It is a class and a forecast. It is great that he answers questions all morning while trading. He has stated that he used to be a contractor. In my mind he was a one armed paper hanger!

The most encouraging item today was the back testing from this morning and saying "Even a caveman could have traded that." Of course I am talking about the morning short. The FLUX tools easily showed a squeeze then a rush downward. I was fooling with what time frame looked good, Renko, tick or time and missed it.. Once chosen you must "reconcile" your choice with a "standard" for best results. I am going to pick a tick chart.

No trades today SIM or cash. Didn't feel comfortable or ready. Slowly the fog is lifting.

Did my homework this afternoon. The greatest part of this system. I can also do the rest of the week. It is incredible!!

Tomorrow I will be looking at shorting the TF at 8:31 and 8:52 (EST.)

Week 1 The language of KA Ching

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

I wish there was a Rosetta Stone for the BTTFT FLUX indicator system. It has been speaking to me all week but I didn't understand its strange tongue. It spoke to me today again. Still testing SIM I made 5 trades, 4 winners, 1 loser. Net TF 42.5 ticks.

But, you can screw that money thing, the FLUX Histograms started talking to me, or more appropriately I started HEARING them. Can you hear me now? They have a beautiful language. The language of "KA Ching." Look at the TF at 10.02 today 8/16/13. You will see it started downwards, then sideways then fell, then backed up a bit, then fell! The Histogram told me exactly that it was going to that. I never felt so good about having a trade turn against me. Because I know to expect it. I do not have to panic. I trust my new friend "Ole Histy" to guide me though the trade. The excitement is building.

I hear in Michael's Back To The Future Trading webinars many people doubting FLUX's ability to take weeks old data and then prepare a picture that will point the way to the future.

But hey, does your mail carrier come every day? About the same time? Why? (S)He is required! The unions, the postmaster they all have their rules , guidelines and methods. Is Wall Street any different? Don't they have rules (often broken) guidelines (need $500 million trading profit this year, (methods) "I don't care when you trade as long as you trade when the bots trade. Look they are trading at 10:00 today." Do you remember "A Few Good Men"? No one told Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey how to get to the mess hall. No one told them the guidelines about when to eat. But they didn't starve. They learned the rules and the guidelines, then they executed. But "You can't handle the truth" can you?

Michael had a great webinar today. Nothing but trading setups. They have a great CL trend entry trade, picked up 90 ticks. HMMM.

Looking forward to Monday. Just finished my preliminary view on the TF. How can he do that? How can he look at what the market is going to do on a Monday the 19th, 3 days before?. It is the FLUX and I can hear it now!" Looks like a great long setup taking place at 9.30 on the TF. Lets watch and see, "Because you cant handle the truth!"

I encourage you to read the thread Random Line Theory. It should be beneficiary.

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.
