@FuturesTrader71

I work a full time job which does often get in the way of trading during the day. Can you comment on the value of Convergent Trading for someone like me who'll mostly have access to webinars, chat rooms, etc after hours?

Thanks

Hi GJStrader,

What do you do? I'm curious. What is your weekly schedule like?

Much of what we do is most active right before the US open and during the US session. However, there is a number of traders who do homework together in chat and discuss markets often. Many of the community members don't attend the webinars live and catch the recording. Questions can be submitted to the TraderTalk via a form and I answer them or demonstrate the concept during the session live, but then the recording is available shortly after to give the opinion to those who can't attend live.

My guess is that most of our members are in the same situation as you.

Many of the community members don't attend the webinars live and catch the recording.

My guess is that most of our members are in the same situation as you.

I teach high school physics (former engineer like yourself I think?) Also coach our boys/girls golf teams. I arrive at school about 7am CT and get ready for classes to start at 7:30. I get a lunch break/conference hour at 11:15 or so which I often use to check the markets and perhaps place a trade via my phone connected to my home PC if I'm not helping students. Two days most weeks, I do not have classes after 11:15... the other days are pretty full though. Occasionally, I can check things quickly between classes or when students are working on stuff too. Classes finish at 2:30 and then off to coaching during golf season, but during the winter I'm done for good at 2:30 CT. I have placed trades before classes start in the mornings too. I'm off all summer.

I'm a few years from retirement and envision futures trading becoming a money making hobby of sorts. Matching my teaching salary in retirement with trading would be the ultimate dream. I enjoy everything about trading... it's like a big complicated puzzle that my engineering/quant/physics brain likes trying to solve... well at least make a little money anyway and not donate to other traders!

Archived webinar access, etc does sound promising... and being a teacher, I understand the value of deliberate practice so trading homework sounds promising too. I need something to get me over the hump for sure... seems like I'm just going in circles now and not sure what to do or when to do it.

Hi...there is no way for me to tell whether it would be of value to you or not. I suggest you take a month and see. Do so before Feb 29th so you can get the beta pricing as that will kick in on March 1st. I'm available in the chat room and there are many members who are happy to help in our #Newcomer and other channels.

Hi @FuturesTrader71. NOOB here. Is your site, chat, methodology too advanced for a new guy to find his way? I'm looking for a trusted resource (you seemed to have earned that here) to learn and establish a trading methodology. I'll NEVER be a full-time trader, just a hobbyist wanting to become proficient making $250-$500 a day. Thank you.

Just 500 USD a day ? Lol . Trading is not for hobbyists , the same way Neuro-surgery is not for hpbbyists . Capeesh ?

$500 is the way over the top end goal. Iíd be thrilled to make $100 a day consistently. Iím not a total noob trader, just newer to futures looking for a fresh start. By hobbyist, I mean semi retired looking to supplement income.
I appreciate the reprimand. I would never ever put retirement assets at risk and Iím pretty risk averse still trading micros.
Thank you.

Thank you.

Apologies if that came across harshly, not my intention.
You are going to need to find an edge or several and this is far
from easy . It took me a decade to really figure things out.
You will need to be a fierce individualist, you must never rely on
anyone except yourself . Volume profile is useful and a must to learn in my opinion but it is hardly the be-all, end-all.

Axia has a useful course on volume profile (I have no affiliation with any trading/investing concern.)

PATs also has a good , fairly cheap course.

Check out Zunaa (zunaa2 ?) on YouTube , old videos but quite good
for idea generation .

Don't ever pay any so called mentor without seeing their actual
returns . Nobody will be able to produce them of course . Never pay
more than a grand for anything . Day Trading Academy and so forth
are complete rubbish. There are no magic indicators and I find simple stuff like trendlines and moving averages to be useful. Technical analysis is very over-rated imo.

Most books are crap too. Check out Adam Grimes, Toby Crabel and Laurentiu Damir. Brett Streenbarger has a site which has superb
emini related trading info, all free.

You don't need to daytrade either , I also utilize a simple trend-following system (Monthly time frame)
utilizing equity indice ETFs.

I just saved you a few years of searching and researching

Thank you for your advice.
Would you be able to kindly share the link of that website?
All I could find so far was (rather old) content about trading psychology. Seems I oversaw something...
Thanks in advance.
