I have just subscribed. I look forward to watching, learning, and hopefully having something relevant to contribute.

I watched 2 of his (FT71) webinars and they were great. The one on trading alone and the ask me anything webinar. Really gave me a feel for his trading style to prepare for his room. I'm gonna watch a few more this week. 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

No need to apologize. Your responding at all shows you care which is what this board is about. I'll look through every name and resource you noted and I very much appreciate your input. I did not mean my post to sound flippant and I positively realize the level of work and amount of commitment it takes to be a successful trader. I'm just trying to figure out what feels comfortable and then how to achieve it with the time I have to commit to the challenge.

Sorry , I just realized I my messages are not in accord with the Thread Title .

I purchased FT71s inexpensive videos a while ago and they are good, he has a free video archive on an old website of his, maybe still in use ?

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.

Hi Oriole,

Thanks for asking.

Frankly, I can't answer this question for you as my answer has a conflict of interest built into it (I run Convergent). I also want you to know that I don't see myself as an educator or mentor. My vision is simply to build a strong community of focused traders who want to become career professionals. There are grander plans, but I will discuss those when they are implemented.

My advice to you is to ask around. Otherwise, commit to just 1 month before February 29th (prices will be adjusted as beta will end then). We don't provide specific setups or some written out plan. We discuss attacking the market from various angles, but you will ultimately have to find what makes sense to you and make it yours. This will take time and a lot of support. This is what we provide.

Best of luck!

$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.

I suggest you reframe how you measure success in this process. Your goal is going to be to gain complete control of your process and execution so that it is as perfect as it needs to be in order to achieve your edge (whatever that is). If successful, the money will follow and then it won't and then it will and then it won't all while putting risk first so that you can survive the times when money is lost (which is inevitable from time to time). Monetary goals are unrealistic and put unnecessary pressure on you.

I loved this post. This sentence is going to stick with me for a long, long time! I used to have monetary goals, but ditched them when I realized I needed to focus on, as you put it, process and execution. The monetary goals were an extra, and unnecessary, layer of garbage and were counterproductive. I feel like this sentence very clearly articulates what I've been working toward. Clarity...I love it!

I humbly suggest learning VP from FT71, guy is the master . But also check out the course from Axia, they go into specific set-ups which can be effective from personal experience but only after you are able to put your personal twist them.

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.

@ss108:
unless you oversaw my post, as you did not reply to my question, I assume that there actually is no website by Brett Streenbarger with e-mini-related content then?

He's a trading psychologist who works with prop firms and institutions and has written some very good books. There is also a newer site for his most recent website based book.
He trades the ES and amongst the psychology are some Trading Technique posts, this is a link to the page that lists them.

Dr. Steenbarger is focused principally on trading psychology, which some regard as more important than others do. To each his own on that question.

But you won't get trading calls and that sort of thing. Also, to each his own on whether that is a good or a bad thing.

He's well-known in the industry, and, of course, whether anyone finds his work valuable is an individual matter. @matthew28 has provided a link for anyone who wants to look into it.

But let's not let this thread get too far off-topic with discussions not related to Convergent.

Thanks.

Bob.
