any updates on CME creating an e-micro S&P500 contract? There is more reason to create this micro than the M6E.

I thought the webinar was very good. Concise and to the point. I've watched numerous presentations by FT71, yet I still learned something new : how the trade off the PB to the Mid is refreshed if a new low is put in. A subtle point, but very useful to me.

Hi Bojangle,

Nothing at all. They are making an effort to be more "retail trader" friendly, but I haven't been successful at getting them to budge on this. I see this as a win-win for them and for the trader. Folks who are too intimidated to trade futures because of the leverage end up trading the SPY anyway. They would be better off, in my opinion, by trading a small ES contract.

Maybe we should get a petition going?

Each one of these can be effective but have their applications and limitations. For example, using a Fixed % on a $2000 account really isn't feasible.

For most traders trading futures, their lot size is pretty much always fixed to some low number (remember that futures have high leverage). So the only thing that remains really is setting an acceptable $ amount to bet on the outcome of every trade (which is always 50/50 anyway).

I don't know what you mean by fixed ratio unless you are referring to reward/risk.

@FuturesTrader71, may I request you share the application you used for this study? I am trying to look at 6C CAD and it woould be great to get this information.

Hi..sorry I didn't see this sooner. The study was completed using Excel (as most of my studies are). You can then apply a conditional formatting heatmap to it.

Hey FT71..

Thanks for the webcast today. I always learn a great deal from your presentations. I have purchased your Webinars, listen to the day Trader Bite each day and have gone thru too many webinars on this site to count...

I have a question that has been giving me fits for a while now. I am UNABLE to sit at a computer all day because I have a regular job. Im a sales rep in the Pharma' industry and literally spend all day in my car. So, I cant really "day" trade. I can sit thru the open and perhaps the first 60 minutes or so of the trading day and once in while can get back for the last hour during my lunch. I live on West coast. With all that out of the way, how would you "tweak" your approach if you were forced to become more of a Swing Trader and had to hold stuff for more than the RTH session?

Thanks

You are lucky in that those are the hours offering the highest opportunity/risk in the day. My approach on this is to simply focus my studies and research to the first and last hour. There are some repeating behaviors that you might be able to exploit. I don't know what your trading time frame is or what product and how you approach it, but it is probably not useful for you to focus on what happened during the non-pit session. I would approach the last hour with no hypos and use what has happened during the entire pit session to formulate a plan for the close.

Thanks for your webinars, trader bites and prospective.

I understand that ES is a futures product with a cash component. That cash component is not traded during non-RTH hours, therefore movement in the price of ES during non-RTH is more of a hope than fact.

How is a 5 or 10 point move in the ES overnight absorbed in the ES during RTH when the cash component is open.
