S&P 500 Emini Trading School | Chart Examples 


Sunday Night Globex Open - During your 90 day training and mentoring period, you never know when the next trading lesson will come your way. Sunday afternoon, shortly after the Globex open, the following message went out- 

ESM3 - Consider being short below 1624 or long above 1632, whichever presents first

Often these e-mini and commodity trading alerts will present both long and short opportunities. One does not cancel the other and we have a core belief that important prices are almost always tested. Often... multiple times. Let's see exactly how this played out in real time.


S&P 500 Emini Futures Tweet ChartS&P 500 Emini Futures - Globex Open Tweet


This S&P 500 Trading Alert went out on Sunday afternoon, 36 minutes after the Globex session opened. This alert has created 6 trading opportunities so far. The total maximum possible cumulative point gain from this single alert is 29 points. Would we expect any S&P 500 Trader to capture all 29 points? No. Is it actually possible? Technically... yes.

CFRN Partners are taught a methodology which embraces 2 points a day as a solid foundation for building their E-mini Trading Business. More than the foundation, it's also the walls, the roof, the chimney with smoke curling out, in fact, you can even see the light Thomas Kincaid left on through the front window. 

What's my point? If you only captured 1/3 of what the market made available (so far), you would only need 4 more ticks to finish your week on a Monday night. A bit unsettling? Feeling.. not worthy? Let's press on for a bit.


DOW E-mini (YM) Charts


We also issued an alert for the Dow E-mini Futures (YM) at the same time. Here is the alert which by the way, is still available on Twitter as is all of our E-mini Trading Alerts for the past few years.

YMM3 - Consider being long above 15145 or short below 15085.

And how did that pan out?


DOW Emini Futures ChartDOW Emini Futures (YM) Tweet


The market made 233 points available on this alert. Again, to keep it realistic, capturing only 1/4 would equate to 58 Dow points which is equivalent to 5.8 S&P 500 points. Or, a half a weeks work if that's how you traded it. Perhaps you pulled 2 points last night, 2 today and now you're peacefully sleeping with the quiet confidence that you'll arise tomorrow, pray, meditate, take a walk, have a coffee... and at some point wander into the orchard and pluck another red delicious from the tree o' plenty. Manna for the day...

Speaking of sleep... one last chart and I'm off to get some. The only other alert that triggered on the Sunday night Globex open was July Soybeans. Here's the alert - 

ZSN3 - I see 2 options. Consider buying a pullback to $15.00 or buying 15.27 Stop.


ZSN3 July Soybeans ChartJuly Soybeans (ZSN3) Alert


Soybeans pay $50 per penny of movement. A 1 Penny move in Soybeans is the same as a 1 Point move in the S&P 500 E-mini. The "important price" theory we discussed earlier in this article, is reflected in the price 15.27. The market made 33 Cents available or $1,650.00 per contract traded. 

If you only caught the first move for the entire 11 cents... take the rest of the week off. At a daily goal of 2 points in the S&P or 2 cents in the Beans..... you're done. See you next Sunday night. This is where I should back pedal and say "Well, even though we really sent the alert and the market really did make the move, and Soybeans really do pay $50 per penny of movement, it's just not possible.

Well guess what? It is possible! You saw the alert, you watched it trade, it is possible. It's also very true that trading is risky and you can lose all of your money and then some. It really is true that just because this trade ran 11 cents, there is no guarantee that Soybeans will ever in our lifetime have an 11 cent move. I mean hey... that's the truth right?

So what's my suggestion? LEARN HOW TO TRADE!

If you don't like the cut of my jib, get your training somewhere else. Check the references of course, but do get some legitimate training somewhere. If it's real, it will shave years off the learning curve and has the potential to save you tens if not hundreds of thousands of $$$'s. 

Honestly? I would love to be your mentor. That's right... I'm applying for a job. In fact, my partner and I will work for you for 5 days absolutely free. If you don't like what you learn, kick us to the curb. If you do, we would love to work for you. It's up to you...

What markets do you teach? Just the s and p 500?

Jun 4, 2013 at 21:45 | Unregistered CommenterChuck F.

CT's not around I guess so I will try to answer your question. They don't trade the S&P that much in the morning. Mostly crude and gold. Soybeans, russell and some natty gas. Hope that helps.

Jun 4, 2013 at 22:14 | Unregistered CommenterDarin Rickey

We trade the S&P when there are setups. Due to the nature of the S&P (plodding beast) we normally don't see more than 1 or 2 setups during the live trading room each day. Gold and Crude on the other hand, along with the Russell, create more opportunities than we can shake a stick at.

The beauty of it is this... we use the same time frame, the same indicators and the same methodology for every single market. With our indicators and our setup, you never have to learn another market. Once you master the trade, you can walk into any market, at any time, and simply apply the setup.

Come take the free trial in the live trading room and we'll show you exactly how it works.


ps/ Thanks for pinch hitting Darin!

What e-mini trading platform do you use?

Jul 22, 2013 at 1:06 | Unregistered CommenterDylan

Which course do I take to learn the Dow Jones YM? Do you teach how to trade the YM? I've been told that is the best market for a beginner because it's only $5 per point and it trends better. Is that true? (in your opinion)

Jul 22, 2013 at 1:09 | Unregistered CommenterJoshua

Do you have a class every day at the same time? Is there a live instructor or do I just watch videos?

Jul 22, 2013 at 1:12 | Unregistered CommenterZachary

We use the dtPro Platform provided by Daniels Trading. It works great and is very easy to use. When you take our free trial you not only spend 5 days in the Live Trading Room, you also get to download the platform and use it for a week.


Jul 22, 2013 at 7:40 | Registered CommenterEditor

Our course is unique because we teach you one trade setup which you can use across multiple markets. The Dow is good for a beginner as it only risks $5 per point and has a tendency to trend better than the S&P. Take the free trial and I will show you.


Jul 22, 2013 at 7:42 | Registered CommenterEditor

We teach a live e-mini futures trading class every trading day from 9:30AM - 11:30AM EDT. You also have access to 250 hours of live e-mini trading videos and 250 hours of e-mini training videos. The course lasts for 90 days. If you want additional access beyond that it is available. Private tutoring is available to our Partners at no additional charge. Take the free trial to learn more -


Jul 22, 2013 at 7:46 | Registered CommenterEditor

How long is this e-mini course? Will I need to take another course after this one? Some places it seems there is always one more course you have to take to be successful. I hope I don't sound like I have a bad attitude but that has been my experience.

Jul 23, 2013 at 11:54 | Unregistered CommenterChristopher

You say the instructor trades live. Which e-mini does he trade? Do we get to actually watch him? Does he trade with a real account?

Jul 23, 2013 at 11:56 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

Can you please give me the best way to speak to somebody live? I have many questions and I can't type very good.

Jul 23, 2013 at 12:02 | Unregistered CommenterKayla

Great questions! We do not up-sell. One of the very popular companies you see on late night TV walks you through a 5 level up-sell at $7k a pop. When you're done, you've spent $35k and according to some of our Partners, you still don't know how to trade. I can't say for sure because I've never taken the course.

We teach you everything we know in 90 days. Here's the deal though, God willing... we will continue to learn something new every day. At the end of the 90 day course, we will have taught you all we know up to that point. If you want to continue to hang out n the Live E-mini Trading Room, attend the CFRN Partner Workshops and receive the Weekly Trading Zones each week, there is a monthly maintenance fee of $75/mth. However, the Proprietary E-mini Indicator Set is yours to keep for life. Also, any new indicators we create and release to the Partners, you are entitled to them, even if you are not an active Partner. If you have any other questions please call me @ 949-42-EMINI.

Michael is our lead trader and he trades real money, in real time, in front of real people, every trading day. He trades the S&P 500 E-mini (ES), the Dow Jones E-mini (YM), the Nasdaq-100 E-mini (NQ) and the Russell E-mini (TF). In addition, he also trades Crude, Gold, Soybeans, the Euro and the Yen.

How is that possible you ask? Quite simple. We use one time frame and one set of indicators to trade every market I just mentioned. As you watch Michael trade live, you will see the only thing that ever changes is the symbol. It's quite remarkable and I encourage you to come take the Free Trial and see it for yourself.

We also re-cap our trades each day on the radio show. We then post a video of all our trades on our web site and also on You Tube. However, nothing beats seeing it happen live in real time. Take the trial, seeing is believing!

I know exactly how you feel. Call 866-928-3310 to talk with Burt or Leslie. They can help you with any questions you have regarding the E-mini Trading Platform, E-mini Charts and E-mini Indicators. They can also answer your questions about funding and opening an actual trading account.

If your questions have more to do with our strategy and what we teach, call myself or Michael @ 949-42-EMINI. The toll free number above is good week days during normal business hours, the other number is good any time including nights and weekends. You can also reach us via email or on Twitter @CFRN.

Do you teach Fibonacci trading? Does that work on emini trading?

Aug 4, 2013 at 23:43 | Unregistered CommenterSophia

I still have a day job. Is there anyway for me to learn how to trade?

Aug 4, 2013 at 23:47 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

How much can I make?

Aug 4, 2013 at 23:49 | Unregistered CommenterOlivia

I spent several years studying Fibonacci for E-mini Trading. I do use Fibonacci for market analysis and as a conformation tool. What I learned after several difficult years is that Fibs are not a stand alone trading methodology. When you draw Fib retracements on a chart, you are presented with multiple potential entries. If you pick the right one, then all is well. If you don't, then you and your money are soon parted.

Used properly and for the right reasons, it is a fascinating and helpful trading tool.

I have written several articles on Fibs you might find of interest. Go to our Blog - and use the search function to look for "Fibs or Fibonacci". You can also Google CFRN + Fibonacci and obtain the same results. I provide specific uses and also charts to help explain the process I employ.

Take the free trial and I'll make sure you at least gain a better working knowledge of Fibs and how to use them properly as you build your E-mini Trading Business.


Aug 7, 2013 at 22:59 | Registered CommenterEditor

That's a great question. You can make as much money as an E-mini Trader as your knowledge and skill set will allow. Our goal is to help you learn to net 2 points a day trading the S&P 500 E-mini or similar market. As you become confident and consistent, we will teach you how to increase the number of contracts you trade. Due to the immense liquidity of the S&P, there truly is no limitation on your earning potential. Of course all trading is risky and you could lose all your money.

Take our 1 Week Free Trial and let us show you what we do.
