Training

Mark does Ofa provide enough free resources such as videos and documents after purchasing the ninja plug in.
Or do you have shell out more for training?

Even better....
They allow FREE use of a lite version and access to over a dozen webinar recordings in Public access area on
website once you register.
This way you can make a better informed decision if it's the right fit.
In addition, they currently offer FREE daily analysis to ES and 6E markets on what to look for in preparing for your trading day in the Traders Lounge on site.

Trade setups for 7/28/2014...

Greetings

3 for 5 today
+1tix / -$125 Net

Happy how I turned things around.
Keeping in mind Who is in control of the market.
Be aware of the Sellers Initiating Trade [SIT] and Buyers Initiating Trade [BIT] and base your entry from there.

Always Learning!!!

Trade setups for 8/1/2014...

Greetings

2 for 2 

Felt very much in control, which is not normal. But learning to keep a level head and not rush into trades!!!

Banked 4 + 3 tix.
The reason for cutting short last entry was news release was shortly coming out and it initially stopped @ 4tix, so cut it short for 3….

1st Trade: Short 9:33am DP area was holding @ 1922.50 area. Went short following the order flow @ 1921.50

2nd Trade: Long 9:56am Buy imbalance above prior weakness 1928 area. Went long @ 1928.25 for 3tix

Have a great weekend!!
Keep learning!!!

Mike S.

Trade setups for 8/6/2014...

Greetings

2 for 3 today.
Able to start stretching out profits to 8tix.
But still feel going for 4/5 tix is my norm.
Trying to use VP [Vol Profile] to define potential target areas

Enter around LVA and target HVA.

The other key is having MUCH SMALLER RISKS from what I’ve had in past.
Now I’m averaging 4/5 tix, which is a solid half of what I’ve been doing!!!

Keep risks small!!!

Always learning!!!

how do you know your trades work as well using a real $ account? The way u testing, it has always been sim... try use real $ and we will know how good the system really is. at the very least, you are not testing in the last couple of month for nothing.
