yupp agree. it was educational ...many of the JS webinars are such. More educational than pormotional.

btw @DionysusToast could you pls put a direct clickable link. Not able to get to it...perhaps typing wrong.

Absolutely....

And the other one worth a look at was from Guy Bower

https://www.youtube.com/user/GuyBower/videos

Guy was the trainer at Propex (Australia/Singapore) when he uploaded these videos. Last time I spoke to him he was about to start teaching interns at another prop shop. So he's worth a listen.

Loved the video. Thankyou Peter.

Similar to John Grady's beginner video series.

It would be great to see more of the practice drills on the Dom that the beginner prop guys learn.

I agree - there is stuff out there & the Guy Bower vids are a good place to start.

There's only so many hours in the day though & while I have planned to collate resources like that, it's just something I've not gotten round to.

As always, I really learn a lot from Pete's webinars. I wish he would do these more often. Thank you Pete for all your efforts and an incredible trading tool.

Ned

Thanks Ned.

The thing about webinars - there's only so much to say! I mean - you'd run out of new things to say about trading after a while. Either that or you'd have to make stuff up!

I think at this point in time, there's a lot of misinformation out there on scalping and especially front running. Hence I thought it would be good to show something from the prop/market making side.

There's also a bit of a balance between giving out information and treading on the toes of the people that taught me the techniques. I hope I struck that right or some people won't be returning my calls in the near future!

I thought the Q&A was interesting. It was to some extent more like a "tug-of-war". Because so many people are chart-centric, a lot of the questions were about bringing alongside more visual/chart based components. So my answers were very much a push back against that.

You really have to just put yourself in the moment and try it before you change it. After all, with Auction Vista, I have a vested interest in making visual tools relevant to the techniques. Yet that tool barely featured in the presentation.

Not that there was anything wrong with the questions. There's always nuance and adaptation but adaptation usually comes after a but of success.

Interesting concept for stepping outside the charts and viewing the market in a different light. I enjoy learning the various ways other traders look at the markets and trade during various market structures.

I took a look at the recording and thought that @DionysusToast delivered well and the advice was quite useful to beginners compared to the average webinar here which is more promotional.

Thanks guys. It's always nice at least to know what other traders are doing even if you don't trade like them.

I had a chat on FB Messenger on Saturday with one of the senior guys from a prop shop. It's blowing my own trumpet a bit but I quote...

enjoyed your webinar on scalping. I know a few guys that made their entire careers off the Crocodile!
Was just nice to hear someone talk sense about what we do rather than the normal crap you hear.

This isn't just to give myself a pat on the back - I just want people to understand that this wasn't made up stuff. Professional traders really are doing this. If you try something new, the question "is this for real" is always in the back of your head as you first start out. That's the demon that can cause you to skip to something else when it doesn't work out.

Imp for someone new in the journey to note....that is might be something real...especially if someone wants to understand Order Flow & has no way to understand it
quoting @DionysusToast " I just want people to understand that this wasn't made up stuff. Professional traders really are doing this. "

Cqg demo + Jigsaw

@DionysusToast: I loved the webinar: a truly "treatise on scalping", but practical.

I am now feeling an urge to practice some scalping. Is it possible to put the Cqg demo account you mentioned to work with Jigsaw D&S (Ninja version)?

Thanks Peter.

With Guy Bower's material, do you mean the paid video course on "Trading Courses", or through "Genisis Trader"? I know he was going to update his older video course with the "P12 Program", but I'm not sure what happened to that.

@DionysusToast Thank you so much for a fantastic webinar Mr. Davies! I'm a newer and struggling trader, mostly focusing on charts and price action but with limited success so far. Your discussion of order flow concepts really opened my eyes to how the market actually moves and I love the idea of taking many trades throughout the day and getting in and out quickly. I'm going to start looking into order flow techniques as my trading study plan going forward. The idea of trading without any charts is also very appealing to me. I imagine this is the way pit traders actually traded.

Anyway, I'm going to look into the Jigsaw tools and start studying the lessons on the website. My goal is to eventually pass my TST combine and become a funded trader. Would I be able to purchase the Jigsaw tools and plug them into my NT platform and use them as I work to pass the combine?

Thanks again!

PM

Not Pete but I saw your question.
Yes. Currently you would need to sign up for the TST Ninjatrader combine as you say. With the RapidTraderPro Jigsaw standalone platform in the future you could sign up for the Rithmic platform and use the data from them to run the DOM. Then you wouldn't need to buy a Ninjatrader live licence in the future. Jigsaw requires a notional live trading fee of $50/month for live trading with the DOM but that fee is NOT required for TST combines. (Originally one had to use the live DOM on TST combines but Pete changed it so the sim DOM would work negating the fee payment)

Well - this is a great set of free resources here: https://www.youtube.com/user/GuyBower/videos

Of course, I also chat with Guy on the phone every now and again, so I'm able to pick his brains too. The Trading Courses is a decent set of resources.

Last time I spoke to him he was about to start up teaching at a prop shop again. I didn't realize it was Genesis he was at.

It's always good to buddy up to people like this if you get chance.
