TradeStation Emini Workshop - Are You A Rainmaker?



The Rainmaker - How To Become A Wall Street Legend


The most powerful men and women on Wall Street don't have their names on the side of a building. They probably don't even have their name on a door. Honestly, they probably don't even have a door, at least not on Wall Street... What they do have, is the ability to make it rain. When you have the power to make it rain, no one requires you to show up at 9, have lunch at 4 Seasons, or play 18 holes with some racist bigot in hopes you'll schmooze him into doing business with your firm so you can make your quarterly bonus. As despicable as he might be, he's the Rainmaker, not you.


How To Become A Main Street Legend

I talk a lot about making it rain and I don't want you to think I speak only of Emini Traders and the Rock Stars of Wall Street. Every industry, every business, every profession... has Rainmakers. Have you ever been to a Church that has a hard time filling up the front row even on Easter Sunday? Yet in the same town there's a Church or even two, with such explosive growth the walls won't hold 'em all. They open up a 2nd, 3rd and even a 4th campus, in the same city. When that's still not enough, they add Saturday night services. Sometimes 2, even 3. Whatever it takes. 

Now they all serve the same God, preach from the same Bible, obey the same 10 Commandments. What the heck is going on? Simple... somebody's making it rain. There's a national chain of Oil and Lube shops where the average franchisee does 20-40 cars a day. One shop though, in a medium sized city does over 200 a day, every day. Same oil, same lube, same uniform with the employee name stitched over the left breast pocket... oh, and by the way, there's a national competitor with twice the advertising budget directly across the street. What the heck's going on here?

An aging schoolteacher in L.A. teaches "at risk" kids how to play chess. Kids who aren't brilliant, they aren't undiscovered prodigies, in fact most of them still continue to struggle in many other subjects (like math) and lack basic life skills. Yet year after year, they clean the clock of some of the smartest kids in the nation. Kids who represent private schools where the annual tuition per student is more than the annual salary of the L.A. teacher (note: he's not complaining). 

It happens in restaurants, at insurance agencies, grocery stores, car lots, even police precincts in dodgy areas of some big bad cities with insane crime rates. Just to clarify, it's not the rain, you can have rain shipped in... it's the Rainmaker. Just to make sure we don't misunderstand each other, it's not about managing the biggest fund, or preaching to the largest mega-church, locking up the most bad guys, or winning the most chess tournaments.

Are you with me? It's about turning nothing into something. It's about vision. The visionary is the true rainmaker. He can hire the fund manager, the chef, the teacher, the baker even a candlestick maker if he needs one. Then... he makes it rain.

Who Are These Rainmakers?

You know one I'm sure. Maybe more than one. Chances are you might not like them, at least secretly. Why? Because they have the thing. Not more things, THE thing. Not a bigger house, faster car or even smarter kids. Some say you must be born with the thing. They say you can't buy, beg, borrow or steal the thing. I disagree. If you want it bad enough, you can have it... in fact, you already have it. You just need to wake up to the fact and start living it. It's your thing, what will you do with it?


TradeStation, The Rainmaker And Emini Futures

Every company has 2 types of employees (this includes middle management, upper management, board members, especially board members). No matter what label you've been given, you either generate revenue, or you're an expense. When you open the bookkeeper's ledger, your name is either under the income column, or the expense column.

Don't get me wrong, most names in the expense column are incredibly valuable to the company and ultimately to the bottom line. They can also be replaced, usually within a week. The man or woman whose name is written in the income column... the visionary, the rainmaker... well that's a much different story.

Now what does any of this have to do with TradeStation and Emini Futures? I chose TradeStation because it's a trading platform, just like E-signal, NinjaTrader, Meta-Trader. They each have their own set of bells and whistles, but at the end of the day they all work as a tool and allow you direct access to the capital markets where at the click of a mouse... you make it rain, or do you?


Can You Make It Rain?

Our workshop, "How To Become A Professional Trader", deals specifically with this topic. If you've already opened your own trading firm, you already know the answer. You're either dancing in the streets or you're crossing off days on the calendar as you burn through your cash and spend sleepless nights wondering how much time you have left. 

You love federal holidays more than a government employee does, because that's one more day you have a legitimate excuse not to trade without feeling guilty. If that's you, you've already figured out something is wrong with this picture and you are desperately seeking a solution. The more desperate a trader becomes, what we once called spam, now becomes "Hope". 


Emini Futures - Real Hope For Desperate Times

The Emini, be it the S&P 500, Dow, Russell, or Nasdaq, are all purely electronic markets. You get the same respect as the man on Wall Street who has a door. However, there is no middleman, no dealing desk, no market maker and most of all, no funny business. 

For $500 in the S&P you control over $90k of equity for 23 hours. Chances are you'll be done with it long before then, but that's some incredible leverage. I know what you've heard - "Leverage is dangerous", or, I love this one, "You can lose everything trading on margarine". Well here's the truth, they may not know the difference between margin and plastic butter, but they are correct... both can be hazardous to your health.

Stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place, with cash burning fast... the fear factor kicks in and even though we can see salvation in the Emini Futures, we cripple our chances by either putting it all on black (never red), or we bleed out slowly using desperate risk management.


Aggressive Risk Management vs. Desperate Risk Management

Huge difference. Aggressive Risk Management which is a foundational element of the CFRN Emini Method® never risks more than 8 ticks, or $100 per contract. The upside potential however, is unlimited. Is it possible to put Humpty Dumpty back together again? Yes, but you must stop procrastinating. 

Tuesday - May 6th, 2014 @ 3pm EDT I'm going to put a solution in your hand. I can't guarantee you success, no one can, but our head trader Michael is going to be there and show you exactly how he made over $7k in April, trading only 1 contract in our Live Trading Room, which is only open - 2 hours a day. Remember, you must stop procrastinating.

Do the math - $7k divided by 20 trading days = $350 a day divided by 2 hours per day = $175 per hour. Am I suggesting you can make $175 per hour trading Emini Futures? Absolutely not. I don't know if you can make ANY money trading the Emini, Gold, Crude, Natural Gas, Soybeans or any of the markets we trade. Neither do you until you see what I have to show you.

All I can promise is this,  he will show you exactly how he did it. Even better, we will loan you our Indicator Set for a week, a full week, and show you exactly how we use it. This way, you'll figure out for yourself if the CFRN Emini Method® is right for you. No need to believe me, trust me, or put your hope in me. The only way to become a Rainmaker is to start putting trust in yourself.

I know it's hard to do because you've made so many boneheaded mistakes already. Right? Relax, we all have. What matters is what you do now. Weep - Sleep or Change the Weather?

 You must stop procrastinating.

How Many Contracts Can I Trade?

I'm way ahead of you. Because we have so many brand new traders coming to us for their education, we only trade 1 contract in the Live Trading Room. Different markets have different levels of liquidity. Since we are talking about the S&P 500 Emini right now, there is virtually no limit. Other markets will have limitations as you grow beyond 10, 20, 100 contracts. Other markets will also have limitations based on time of day. That's OK. They say walking on water is easy when you know where the rocks are. We know, and we can show you.

If you're already a 10 contract trader, or even a 100 contract trader, the S&P 500 will absorb your order flow without blinking an eye. Now let me type this as sternly as I possibly can,

"If you are new to trading, you must remain in the simulator until you are consistently profitable. Once you reach consistent profitability, you should only go live with 1 contract." 

As you grow your account size and increase the number of contracts you trade over time, we will be there every step of the way to keep you on the path and provide accountability. If you are already trading in size, I will suggest you put it in neutral for a few days until you master the CFRN Emini Method®. In case you don't know SIZE KILLS! The Good News? It doesn't have to.

How Complicated Is Your Method?

2 Indicators + 1 Time Frame + 1 Setup = April's Results


Plus the month before, and the month before, and the month before... email support@cfrn.net for a copy of our trading results spreadsheet and be sure to watch the recap videos here on the site. We also create a new one every trading day. You can watch us trade it live from 9:30-11:30am EDT and then watch us recap it from 12 to 12:30pm EDT, every trading day on the Radio Show.

We are transparent. We have zero hype, offer no false hope, we simply show you the facts. Either you get it, or you don't. It rains, or it doesn't.

CFRN is now in it's 9th year of helping Trader's just like you. Join us at the Workshop, maybe we can help you...

Who We Are


No Trader Left Behind 

CFRN Corporate Culture | Our Promise To You

It wasn't so very long ago, that I myself was in search of someone to simply teach me the fundamentals of trading. Not the "trade secret" mind you, just the basics. What to look for, how to get in, get out, etc.. For the life of me I couldn't find anyone. I wasn't looking for a free ride, I was more than willing to pay cash or sharpen pencils, it didn't matter.. I just wanted to learn.

Some years have passed and I'm happy to say, there are far more resources available today. You still have to be careful, watch what you step in, and keep your hand on your wallet. With that caveat in tow, let me proclaim - "an education is now readily available". In fact, there is so much information available, you need a financial sherpa to navigate the terrain.

Coaches Corner - Spaceship Thinking | Episode #3

Coaches Corner w/ Robin Dayne -
Spaceship Thinking And Emini Futures Trading

Remember those early video games? Nothing fancy, just you - a spaceship - and a few hundred aliens trying to take you out. What was the primary goal? The secondary goal? Once you were skilled enough to get your initials on the screen, how did those goals shift? Once you knew you were "good" at it, the way you played the game changed, didn't it? That change eventually came back to haunt you. If you stuck around long enough, you went through several iterations until you became a consistent high scoring player.

Electronic trading in Emini Futures is not much different than those early video games. The similarities are almost eerie. The biggest difference is you are no longer playing for digital creds, you're now playing for the mortgage, college tuition for 2.5 kids and your own retirement. The stakes are high and most of your friends think you are too. Am I right?

Emini Mastermind Course | The Trading Plan

“By failing to plan, you are planning to fail.”  Benjamin Franklin

The Trading Plan

Over the weekend we released the PDF Companion for Partner Workshop #87. Based on emails and other feedback I've received, #87 opened a lot of eyes and minds as well. We have over 200 hours of Emini Training Videos in our video vault. These videos deal with every indicator we've coded, every setup we've created and the ultra simple rationale behind our trading methodology. Where #87 differs I think and the reason it has drawn so much attention, is we are now knee deep in not just "learning how to trade", we've moved into teaching you "How To Run A Successful Emini Trading Business".

You can own every indicator and trading system in the world, but that will never make you a successful trader. Having a solid plan and learning to follow the plan without deviation through good times and bad however, will.
