Truths About Trading
Years after the day I started trading when it dawned on me that much, maybe most of what is held out to be solid trading info is false. Trading is a simple (but not easy) combined act of the following…

  • determine price direction (trend)
  • identify key turning points (resistance and support)
  • develop a method of trade entry around these key S/R zones
  • determine a risk-loss limit balanced between $$ amount and price behavior
  • determine a profit-objective plan based on $$ amount and price behavior
  • set a daily max-loss limit based on $$ amount and price behavior
  • select a daily profit-objective based on $$ amount and price behavior

That’s the equation. Pretty cut and dried. If and when you manage to put all of those pieces together, then you have a long-term winning = profitable approach.

Trade When Profitable To Do So
The age-old adage, “bulls make money and bears make money but pigs get slaughtered” is certainly true.  If for any reason you think trading means all day – every day effort, you need to change that way of thinking. Or you will lose. Trading is about dodging in & out, parry & thrust, sit-watch-wait until your predefined parameters exist to offer you a statistical probability of success.

That’s what we teach. An organized, systematic approach of watching charts, going thru the visual = mental checklist and taking action when appropriate. And ceasing all further action when equally appropriate.

After all, we enter this profession for time freedom and lifestyle potential it offers… not some sort of screen slavery or trade-action addiction. The less time we spend making the most consistent gains possible, the better we are at achieving those personal goals.

Here To Make Money
There is no other valid reason to trade except for sincere efforts to make money. Period. Our educational material puts those pieces together in one digestible, understandable  approach. If you follow the script and do your part, you will win 🙂

CM Schools Of Trading
I consider the rest of 2016 merely bonus time for the start of 2017. Now thru Monday Jan 2nd will be time included within our educational programs for trading.

Speaking of which, we are taking things in a new direction here with two different programs for stock index futures (using ES as our proxy example for all) and crude oil futures (CL) in separate fashion.

While it’s true that both share some basic similarities, each is different enough in liquidity, price behavior and individual features that imo they are best handled separately.

If you currently create weeks like the chart above for yourself, my sincere and utmost congratulations for your success.

If you would like to create weeks like the chart above for yourself, pick one (or both) symbols you would like to work with, and CM Trading School is now in session 🙂

CM-Live S&P 500 (ES) School Of Trading: $500
Designed for serious, active ES traders, CM School Of Trading S&P 500 includes everything needed for consistent success. S&P 500 (ES) futures offer ample liquidity and (mostly) methodical price movement for any & all individual traders to follow.

In my opinion, ES trading is suitable for any level of trading experience. At this point in time it offers the most methodical price behavior, which is important for traders who wish to make deliberate trade decisions.

Also, ES futures offer the most liquidity of all popular symbols. There is plenty of opportunity for multiple traders to execute fills near the same price strike levels. That’s a very important feature for many traders, from large-account individuals right thru group educational efforts with everyone on the same page.

  • daily live trading room & home-study program
  • ES-Live (hotcomm) intraday room (now thru 3/31/2017)
  • one-on-one personal consultation (as requested)

CM-Live Crude Oil (CL) School Of Trading
[closed for new registrants]

Designed for serious, active CL traders, CM School Of Trading Crude Oil includes everything needed for consistent success. Crude Oil (CL) futures are liquid enough for trading multiple contracts and price action is more often than not fast-paced if not outright explosive.

This program is priced for that special purpose of limited liquidity AND greater degree of skills level involved for consistent success. Anyone else out there in the entire trading world who tells you otherwise is for whatever reason(s) misleading you.

CL futures do not offer enough contract-size liquidity for any group of traders to follow along closely. Actual trade fills and executions will vary more often than not.  Trade decisions are often split-second and reactive as opposed to deliberate and methodical. A completely different manner of the real-money trades execution process.

In my opinion, CL trading is best suited for experienced traders who are well capitalized and able to withstand extreme price movements along with moderate drawdowns. That is the very nature of any higher-beta symbol… one cannot have volatile upside potential without some degree of volatile downside risk.

Therefore our CL-Live program is priced for the factors of limited liquidity AND greater degree of skills level involved for consistent success. Anyone else out there in the entire trading world who tells you otherwise is for whatever reason(s) misleading you.

  • daily live trading room & home-study program
  • CL-Live (hotcomm) intraday room (now thru 3/31/2017)
  • one-on-one personal consultation (as requested)

Not Always Perfect

1128-cl

CL futures were once again merely a low-volume, back-chopped affair all day. After the obligatory OPEC will/won’t whatever rumors premarket, there was nothing left inside the pit.

1128-es

ES futures were held hostage by the other v-chopped markets until late afternoon.

screenhunter_1178-nov-28-16-11

My ES actions went +2pts / -1.00pt / -1.00pt and some pars before I tossed the towel at 0… which was the final short stopped at peak swing high before price dropped to expected magnets below. Had the right trade, had the 2199 target in sight. Price simply didn’t cooperate until end-day.

One (1) tick away from a +$500 day. That’s how it goes, no need to overthink the process. Cannot avoid that type of thing completely, it’s part of the profession.

OPEC meeting holds CL hostage to light-volume chop interspersed by abrupt spikes or slams as the rumor mill churns. Lots of Fed-heads speaking at all hours this week, non-farm payroll report on Friday. Enough turbulence to keep things plenty roiled… probably right thru year-end and straight into 2017.

See You Inside
