Hello,

After talking with a trading colleague, I felt compelled to offer my insights on this traders information offered and the site in general. When my friend and I discuss different strategies and techniques, it always seems like we end up talking about trading sites that have incredibly flashy web pages, scrolling recommendations, looping videos showing expensive cars with mansions in the background and dollar bills growing out of the trees (I might be exaggerating a little). My friend always says that the flashier the website, the more likely "salesman" and less "trader" oriented the information/site will be. I have kept this in mind as I have browsed around the web over the years but never consciously talked about it specifically. A while ago I came across eminiedge.com and Joe Capone that runs it and honestly I must have went to it and closed it a dozen times before I stayed and truly tried to comprehend what was there. I corresponded a few times with him directly via email and bought some materials that I found to be very useful for me given where I was at the time. His strategy is related to reading price action and finding likely support and resistance levels that he applies a handful of setups to. He recommends pretty tight stops and "darts" in and out, told me that he uses a technique that was described by "the phantom of the pits". He does not have a chat room or trade room, and does not offer "calls" real time, but does put up videos every so often that have useful information and show some real time trades he takes from time to time. My point is that I think he is a real trader that offers useful information, and following the techniques and strategies he has in his manual I personally have been able to turn the corner to consistent profitability, which for me was a long time coming. He has always answered my questions in reasonable time and it seems he genuinely wants others to succeed. I have seen various threads here that cover similar techniques so I know the "theory" of price action trading is valid, but it was nice to be able to discuss specific trades with someone who does it and get a detailed answer about specific trades.

So I guess my comment/question is two fold: First, is anyone else using S/R and price action strategy from EminiEdge.com? ...and second, has anyone else had experience with the "flash" of the site vs. the usefullness of the trading information/guidance offered? I wonder how many sites I have discounted over the years because they did not "grab" me. Seems like there must be a psychological affect that draws me to the flashing lights (like a casino!) for some reason...

Thanks for your time!

Happy to see someone else talk about Eminiedge, but I kind of wanted to keep it to myself so he keeps answering my questions! I do have a little experience with Eminiedge.com as well, and had similar experiences. After trading for a long time, I came across this website which is run by " Trader Joe". After watching the videos and reading the information on the site I took the plunge and bought the trading manual E-book, along with a couple of the indicators offered on the site (which are only for Tradestation). At first I thought it was a bit pricey for an e-book (I am cheap), but considering it is a trading manual written by a real trader, it was very reasonable compared to others I've seen and previously purchased (...the many, MANY things I purchased, the previous one was $3900! Ouch that stings saying that!). The e-book is a quality piece of work and covers what Trader Joe has developed over the years and uses to trade the Emini S&P futures market himself. His strategy is based on age-old S/R zones and price action trading, and the levels I subscribed to for a couple of months before I found how to derive these for myself for the most part. The info is easy to understand and really took my trading to the next level. It details how to set up your charts to match his and shows about a dozen setups, all with pictures and explanations. The entries and exits are discussed, both stops and profit taking. It is actually a fun read, Joe tells a few stories throughout describing some mistakes he made while learning to trade, which most traders can probably relate to. I did have a few questions after digesting the material and starting to put it in to practice and I contacted EminiEdge through e-mail and Joe always responded with kindly with an articulate answer. Very professional! If there is anything that I would rate lower, it is that I'd love to see more videos of the trade setups rather that the static screen shots (my personal preference is seeing the hard right edge). He does have quite a few of these in the blog on the site, so they are available, just not sorted by entry type. I'd also like to see a write up on how he comes up with the S/R zones as sometimes I scratch my head where they are from but they seem to work. I did ask Trader Joe about this and he said he has been working on the manual for this but doesn't have any date for it yet. This isn't a big deal so don't get me wrong, it is still a 9 out of 10 for me. It took me a while but I'm now on my fourth profitable month of trading in a row, which has never happened for me before. You see so many negative reviews on things so I felt I should share my good experience for a change. I'll attach a few pics from the site but not from the manual as I don't think I can publish this legally so sorry about that... The blog is open and free, so you can check it out for yourself: Eminiedge blog. Definitely recommended if your struggling to find your way trading, especially if you gravitate towards S/R zones and price action like I was. Best money I ever spent on trading education material, but part of this is because of the added bonus of meaningful correspondence with Joe when I had a question. Of course this might be different for everyone depending your trading style, but this is the direction I wanted to go, just wasn't sure how to get there.

He also just recently put up a nice article on the MDP 3.0 change over which was quite interesting and worth reading...

Cheers!
Dijon

What is your connection with this vendor? @krosen1 and @Dijon

You both came to futures.io (formerly BMT) and both IMMEDIATELY started posting about how great this vendor was, in your first posts. You both replied to each other about how great the vendor was in fact. This was in the introduce yourself section of the forum.

Then after those posts were deleted because we require 10 posts in order to discuss vendors in the correct section (Vendor review section), both of you proceeded to make a string of posts to get to #10, then both immediately started posting about this vendor again.

Both of you login at the same times, and both of you have inaccurate information about your location in your profile.

Both of you embed links into posts in the same way, which sticks out like a sore thumb because no one else ever does this (ever!!), and both of you also link keywords and phrases for the benefit of SEO.

It's almost as if you are the vendor!!!! Imagine my disbelief, because never in the history of futures.io (formerly BMT) has any vendor come to the forum and lied about their identity, pretended to be a normal user, and created multiple accounts solely to promote their business!

What gives?

Hello,

No affiliation, just excited to share something that clicked for me and wanted to give someone who helped me so profoundly a shout out. If I'm not posting things properly, apologies for that.

Huh. No "connection" with the vendor here other than using their trading plan, but it's your story so make it what you want I guess. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction...

I only heard the name in an old video once and I think it is actually something more like Copani.

Hi,

Anyone using the new Mtf indicators on TS 9.5 U20 I'd love to bounce a few nuances around. Just have a few questions so send me a pm if you like.

Big Mike,

I realize I am a couple of years late to this party but I just ran across this and my radar was going off for another reason. I found EMini-Watch and was trying to find more information from other sources when I ran across EMiniEdge. Their indicators are very similar, their company names are similar, and their primary (or only for EEdge) platform is TradeStation.

Thanks,
Jeff

Maybe he took their code and made his own version plus rewrites for Ninjatrader and Multicharts.
