CFRN Twitter Feed - Real Time Trades For S&P 500 / Dow / More...
We've seen another week of excellent results via the CFRN Emini Futures Twitter Feed. We encourage you to benchmark any trading system on the internet against our results. All Tweets are a matter of Public Record and carry an Official Time Stamp. Our Emini Tweets are longer term directional ideas that often result in dramatic moves.
A word of caution as you look back, hindsight is 20/20. To succeed as a trader -
"You must learn how to trade"
The best guidance in the world will ultimately break you both financially and psychologically unless you understand proper execution and risk management techniques. In hindsight it may look as though it would be hard to be wrong, I assure you that is not the case. We spend 2 hours a day for 90 days making sure those who take our Emini Futures Trading Course understand both.
From identifying trade setups to execution and trade management, we leave no stone unturned.
Here's a look at our last 2 Tweets.
(YM) Dow Emini Futures
(ES) S&P 500 Emini Futures
Both Tweets were issued several hours prior to execution, that requires patience. For most traders patience is a trait that doesn't come naturally. During our 90 day course we focus very heavily on the importance of learning the art of "wait". Think sniper... not machine gunner.
The dollar figures listed on the charts above represent 1 contract held from stem to stern. The odds of you pulling that off are highly unlikely. A more reasonable scenario is that a 9 contract trader might have taken off 3 after a 2 point gain, 3 after a 10 point gain, and trailed a stop on the balance. How would locking in early profits change the return? Let's look at the S&P 500 trade:
3 contracts X 2 points X $50 per point = $300
3 contracts X 10 points X $50 per point = $1,500.00
3 contracts X 46 points X $50 per point = $6,900.00
On the 3rd lot I used 46 instead of 48 as the closing price was 2 points lower than the high. There are traders who are still long over the weekend, however, unless you are managing and/or hedging this move with options, we would have taught you in our course to consider being flat over the weekend.
If we tally it all up the figure is now $8,700.00 based on 9 contracts. That still works out to be $966 per contract but you locked in some profit immediately, you took more off on strength and simply let the rest ride. I know it starts to sound a bit complicated, that's why we spend 90 days making sure you understand how to not only spot the setup and execute the trade, but to manage it as well. Believe it or not managing a WINNING trade is one of the toughest lessons you'll learn. As always, past performance is no indication of future results.
Again, I encourage you to go back through the Tweets, review the charts, listen to the audio archives and decide if our approach to trading Emini Futures makes sense to you. You can buy books and indicators all day long but where the rubber hits the road is when you make the decision to "Learn How To Trade".
