RUNNING THROUGH THE JUNGLE! TRADING THE COMBINE VIDEO SERIES

THIS IS PART ONE OF A SERIES.

THIS IS TO GO THROUGH EVERY DAY OF A COMBINE THROUGH TO A FUNDED ACCOUNT AND TAKING HOME THE PROFITS ONLY AFTER $10,000-$20,000 PROFITS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED ON THE FUNDED ACCOUNT.

IN THE FIRST PHASE IT'S THE COMBINE, AND THIS BEGINS AS A 3 CONTRACT ACCOUNT IN THE COMBINE

IN THE SECOND PHASE OF THE TRADING TEST THAT A PROP FIRM WANTS THIS CONTINUES BY STARTING AS A 3 CONTRACT ACCOUNT AGAIN, AND WORKING TO 15 CONTRACTS.

IN THE FINAL PHASE AFTER BOTH TESTS ARE PASSED, AND THE FUNDED ACCOUNT IS ESTABLISHED THIS STARTS AS A 3 CONTRACT ACCOUNT AS A FUNDED TRADED. IT THEN GOES ONTO A 15 CONTRACT FUNDED ACCOUNT WITH 5 FIGURES IN PROFITS THAT REMAIN IN THE FUNDED ACCOUNT AS THE DRAWDOWN LIMIT. PROFITS ON THE FUNDED ACCOUNT ARE THE DRAWDOWN BECAUSE THE FIRM NO LONGER GIVES YOU A DRAWDOWN. IT'S UP TO YOU HOW BIG YOUR DRAWDOWN IN.

I RECOMMEND A MINIMUM OF 10-20K PROFITS ON THE FUNDED ACCOUNT, BUT LIMIT YOURSELF TO 10K TAKE HOME A MONTH. CONTINUE TO ACCUMULATE THE REST OVER A YEAR OR MORE, AND THEN SPLINTER OFF ANOTHER ACCOUNT OR ACCOUNTS WITH BROKERAGES OF YOUR OWN AFTER ESTABLISHING A SIZABLE ACCOUNT. 15 CONTRACTS CAN BE LIMITING AND RULES SUCH AS BEING OUT BY THE CLOSE OF THE MARKET CAN BE LIMITER TO SOME TRADERS. OTHERWISE THE RISK FREE LEVERAGE OFFERED BY THE FIRM CAN BE A BENEFIT AS WELL WHICH MOST CONSERVATIVE, MEDIOCRE TRADERS WILL LIVE BY NOT SPLINTER FROM. IN THAT CASE JUST RETAIN A 10-20K DRAWDOWN BUFFER ON THE BOOKS, AND TAKE HOME THE PROFITS ABOVE THAT MONTHLY.

THE FIRST VIDEO OR FIRST VIDEOS ARE USED AS A REFERENCE FOR NOMENCLATURE AND CONCEPTS THAT ARE USED THROUGH THE SERIES. NOT EVERYONE WANTS A 2 HOUR VIDEO EACH DAY TO SIT THROUGH. THOSE WILL BE AT THE BEGINNING. THEN THEY WILL BE SHORTER BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN SO MUCH ABOUT THE MEANING OF WHAT I'M SAYING, BUT RATHER THE BRIEF WACHA DO AND WACHA DON'T DO ON THE CHARTS.

I'LL THROW IN SOME REAL TIME TRADING VIDEOS, BUT NOT EVERY DAY. THOSE CAN GET DRAWN OUT, AND IT'S KIND OF DISTRACTING FOR ME. I HAVE TO ACTUALLY TRADE.


LAST OF ALL THIS APPLIES TO THE MOST POPULAR LIQUID FUTURES MARKETS WHICH I CARRY ON 7 MONITORS:

/NQ NASDAQ
/ES S&P 500
/CL OIL
/6E EURO
/GC GOLD



SINCERELY,

TRADER

Quick Summary
Quick Summary Post

The object of this journal is still the same. It is to take you through the real, raw not faked out steps from a 3 contract combine trader to having $10k-$20k profits in real cash on a funded firm account. I'm not endorsing any firm. I'm not monetizing any of my videos. It's purely just for teaching.

The main idea of the lesson I teach is how to trade of course, but where I get my understanding of markets from, and how the issuance of data all around determines my ability to interpret charts not as mere calculators or something of that nature, but as a population of people making deliberate decisions which have real consequences. Their decisions are the consequence of real data from many sources.

Don't see the charts as just computer thingies. See them as interpreters of many, many people making decisions.

When you can use the charts to understand the why the crowds in the markets make the decisions they do, you can know how to anticipate the results of their decisions before the results happen. That's the key to trading, investing, and life in general.

You have to know what decisions they made first, what are the consequences for their decisions, what are the results of their decisions which you can anticipate with a trading strategy, and then what trading strategy can you profit on those results of their decisions with.

The lesson is of the mentality of businessmen or businesswomen not of mere calculator web charts, then you cannot understand why the price cannot move where it cannot. If you can understand why it cannot move where it cannot move, then all you have to do is be where it can move before it moves there. In other words if you can just stop losing money, then all you have to do is wait for the money to wind up in your account. You'll still have small losses, but the more frequent profitable trades will round those little losses out over time taking you to the dream job you hope for.

You have to find the sweet spot of profit taking, and cost/loss/risk mitigating, and stay in it like you were trying not to drive too fast or too slow but just right in the sweet spot getting to where you want to go in you dream job without getting towed because you were caught or you wrecked because you were expecting more than what a 3 contract account can safely earn. Slow and steady wins the race in this case. Absolutely conservative trades only, and never be so greedy that you expect to much from any single trade. Also never be so greedy about a losing trade that you let a trade take too much from you as you expect to earn what is already gone. There are lots of trades. You can let the bad ones go, and you can take a tiny profit instead of expecting them to always give you a lot of money, and you will still wind up with more profitable trades than losing trades.

If you fear, you are just in a hurry to get paid. You're taking trades that are not in the sweet spot of the conservative road of trades, and you're not letting the daily "give and take" along the lines of conservative trades work itself out all on its own. You're not knowing why the market does what it does, or why it can't do what it doesn't do because you don't know who the market is. You think it's just a chart not people. And most of all you're just not trading and researching enough to see it's people behind the movements on the charts making the decisions that result the opportunities for you to profit just like in any Main St. shop. It's not just numbers at all.

Surprise by simplicity of your trading ,just a 5 min chart and producing a good results. I completed a first part of combine and just to be killed in a second part mostly due to over sizing . So hopefully learn some new stuff from you .If possible show more CL crude videos. Recorded live trading is most valuable .Your political and historical comments are interesting as well .
Hopefully more members will recognize the values here .

Hi @Trader2016,

I notice that every single post is just to promote your YouTube channel. There is no discussion here, you are simply using futures io as a means to advertise your channel.

What are your intentions? Are you starting a trading related business, or plan to at some point in the future?

Will you ever offer any type of paid service or product, or start a website/blog that earns money by referral or by paid services or products, in any way?

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.
