Emini Day Trading | Learn How - CFRN


Complete Emini Day Trading Education

Emini Training and education designed to meet the needs of both the beginner and experienced e-mini trader. Learning to day trade emini futures is not easy, but our day trading strategies were created to make the process simple. There are emini courses that offer to teach you how to be a trader in 5 days. Unfortunately, it's not possible to in 5 days.

We give you the first 5 days of personalized training free. Our training includes a fully automated trading platform, proprietary e-mini indicators, real time data feed and customized e-mini charts.

Unlike ordinary emini training courses, we offer an immersive experience. We give you the first 5 days free, just to see if you have the stamina to make it through the other 90 days. Honestly, most people don't. A high percentage of traders will wash out in those first 5 days. Don't feel bad, some of the toughest guys in the world, Navy SEALS, ring the bell and walk off the beach in the first 5. Correction... the ones that don't walk off, are the Seals.


90 Days Of Emini Futures Training

Why does it take so long? It takes longer, we just figure you're ready to spend some time with your family at this point. Seriously.

If you do want to learn to trade for a living, let me help you understand exactly what that requires - 2 Points Net Per Day (average). Honestly, you can do it with 1 or 3, but 2 is a nice even number. As an example, the S&P 500 Emini has an average daily range (ATR) of 15-20 points over the past 10 years. 

Over the course of a trading day, as the S&P Emini travels from the low of the day to the high of the day, or vice-versa, it's rarely a straight line. A lot of back and forth activity with the occasional hairpin turn thrown in for excitement. What that does, on a 15 point day "as the crow flies", there may be 20-30 points of actual travel time. 3 points up, 2 points back etc... 

In case you were wondering if it's actually possible to net 2 points a day - it is. There's no guarantee you will, but the market does make it available - every single day. On any given day the S&P 500 Emini will trade 1-3 million contracts. If the average trader traded 20 contracts a day, on the slow day we would have 50,000 emini traders at the table. I forgot... imagine you're sitting at a table (think poker if you wish) with every other trader who is actively trading on this hypothetical day. You with me?


How Many Emini Traders Are There?

Now as the story goes, 70% of current volume is traded by the HFT's, the Quant's, the Machines. How many machines are there? I don't know. Let's say on the slow day (1m volume) we only have 300,000 contracts in the hands of individual traders. That's 30% right? If the average trader still trades 20 contracts a day, we've whittled it down to 15,000 flesh and blood traders sitting at the table with us. Why is this important? Great question...

The basis of most every trading system, indicator, oscillator, methodology etc... is that it's going to tell you, or predict with a high degree of accuracy, what the market is going to do next. Now that's a pretty clever trick because the market in and of itself, does nothing. If the bell rings and no trader trades, nothing happens. Every tick in the market is generated by the thoughts and actions of all those traders seated at your table. Some are buying to enter, some are selling to close, some are opening with a short and some need to buy to cover because they went short yesterday and the market didn't. I guess their fortune teller was broke.

So, lots of decisions being made.. buy to open, buy to close, sell to open, sell to close, buy to cover, sell to cover... follow me? Of course we all know the indicators lag (except the magic ones), so I won't beat that dead horse. I will throw you a curve though. See those little price bars on your chart, or candlesticks if you prefer? Guess what... they lag too. That tick on your screen "right now" was generated in the past (seconds, milliseconds,???) by the thoughts, decision and ultimate action of one of your 15,000 closest friends. Hmmmm...


The Mind Of A Trader

In order to know what is going to happen next, to divine the future, has nothing to do with prophesying what the market will do, it requires you to crawl inside the mind of a trader. Make that 15,000 traders, on the slow day. Can you read my mind? Can you read your wife's mind? Your husband? If not we have a problem Houston, because every one of those systems, indicators, osicllators and methodologies all require you to know what's going to happen next in the market. That's why they exist... Remember?

So what are the odds that for $99.97 you can grab a piece of software off the Internet (Hurry only 10 copies left) that is so sophisticated it can read the minds of 15,000 traders, analyze the data and report back to you in time to put on or take off a trade?

Or, perhaps you went the 5 day route... 

Now I'm no Geraldo. I didn't figure this out by myself. No I stand on the shoulders of a "little g", as in giant. Go read the book by Mark Douglas "Trading in the Zone". It's where I was first enlightened and he certainly explains it much better than I do. Slow down... it's a great book, it exposes the problem, but it doesn't pack a simple solution. Hate to spoil the ending, but the bottom line is this - you need an edge.


The Cure

When I finally grew tired of looking for an edge, I found one. You see when Mark says you need to find an edge, what he's really telling you in my opinion is you need to learn how to trade. What I'm telling you is that in order to learn how to trade you must first learn how to read. (a chart)

The day I stopped Googling for miracle cures and learned how to read, the edge appeared. Honestly, it was there all along. I just needed to shed a lot of baggage and then the scales fell from eyes. That journey around Trader Mountain took me 4 years. Our goal, if we're successful... is to get you there in 90 days. We can teach you how to trade, but only you can make you a trader.

The journey starts here -  APPLY!

At Emini Trading School understand that it takes more than trading knowledge to be a successful trader. It takes the ability to apply logic learned from similar traders as ourselves in the use of Market Profile regarding the auction market theory.
