How CFRN Emini Method® Profits From Flash Boys

(QQQ)(SPY)(DIA)(GLD)((SLV)


 

Forbes Says...
The Only Way To Beat The Flash Boys Is Not To Trade

A little piece of me died when I read that headline and the article that followed. The same little piece that smokes a pipe, wears a Mr. Rogers sweater and drives an Oldsmobile. 

S&P 500 Traders Use CFRN Emini Method® To Smoke The Flash Boys

Now to prove I'm not making this up, let me quote directly from the article written by John Wasik a contributor to Forbes and published today:

“How do you beat Wall Street at trading?”

“Don’t trade.”

That’s my advice in a nutshell because it avoids the mostly true, but old news of Lewis’s book. You can’t beat robotic high-frequency trading programs unless you have what the big boys have: High-speed fiber optics lines to exchange servers, precise algorithms and the budget to finance all of the latest software and hardware. (Source: Forbes)


Flash Boys Crank Up Printing Press For Scalpers Who Can Think

I agree with John, I'll never beat the Flash Boys in a foot race down to the exchange and back. More importantly... I don't need to! I also don't need high speed fiber optic cable tied directly to exchange servers. The same fiber my kids watch Saturday morning cartoons on is the same fiber I use to transmit sensitive data around the world. Granted, I do pay my bandwidth henchmen (Cox Cable) an extra $150 a month to "goose me" when I need a little extra pipe to get the job done. As for software, I use dtPro which is free from Daniels Trading.

Last but certainly not least, I do need some hardware to run my software, to get my S&P 500 Emini order into the pipe. We do recognize the need for a "rock solid" machine to bring all the magic together. You've been told to spend $4k for a "trading computer", haven't you? In fact, you've been told that to be a Professional Trader you need a "special" machine. What you need is simply a fast, reliable computer. Google the search term "Emini Trading Computer" and check out the top result. CFRN Emini Trading Computer.

When you do the Google search, I'm not referring to the expensive advertisements at the top and by the way, unless you're really serious, don't click those ads. Why? Those keywords run the advertiser about $12.00 per click. However the first organic result you get, yes that's us. Click away... it won't cost us a dime because that's not an ad, that's Google's choice for the best search result for an Emini Trading Computer. Yes we're humbled and honored to be in the #1 spot, but more importantly, we're excited to be able to sell you a "rock solid" machine, hand built, right here in America.

Will the $4k computers in the ad above us outperform us on some benchmark tests? Sure. It's akin to owning a car that will go 160 mph when the top speed limit is 70. In other words, you could be paying for stuff you'll never need. Can we bump you to an i7 chip? Add umpteen video cards? Sure. We prefer to give you what you need at a price you can afford. Don't get me wrong, those other computers are awesome, but if you think they are going to make you a better trader, forget about it. Our machine will send your order down the pipe and bring you back confirmation in the blink of an eye. Whether you're trading 1 contract or a 1,000. 

Back to the Flash Boys and how we trade emini futures

So before we all loose our train of thought drooling over our need for speed,  let me get back to the point. If we get a Slingshot setup that tells us to buy the ES Emini at 1882.75, we enter a limit order. Sometimes we get filled, sometimes we don't. That's been going on forever. The S&P, above and beyond every other market out there, channels back and forth and back and forth, whether it's in an uptrend or a downtrend. So why am I a "Fan of the Flash Boys"?

It's the liquidity st_ _ _ d. That's an old joke, on an old play on words, by an old politician. If you don't get it, forget it. If the ask is 1883 and the bid is 1882.75 and my limit order is 1882.75, that means I'll pay 1882.75 and not a penny more. Unless, I click MIT which means "market if touched". Now as desperately as I want to buy at 1882.75, in the S&P, someone else is most likely just as hot to trot to sell 1883. Now if he thinks the Flash Boys are going to beat him to the exchange... what might he do? He might click "market if touched" or better yet he just drops his offer a tick because the new best seller on Wall Street tells him "if you want to play, you gotta pay".

Flash Boys - New Kidz On The Block? 

For those of us who earn a living pulling 2 points (8 ticks) a day out of the most liquid market around - the S&P 500, we've been thinking fast on our seat for a long, long time. If my 1882.75 order doesn't get filled that's ok. I'll wait for the next train. However, with all the buzz about  SPEED SPEED SPEED, I'm no longer waiting on a train, my ship has come in. Straight up.

Why? While everyone is focused on being the first to the table, we're already at the table. We still have time to think. We still have time to wait for everything to come together just the way we like it. Worse case scenario? We get more opportunities every single trading day. Once the initial shock wears off, and everyone comes back out to play, us dirty rotten scoundrels, "the scalpers", we're about to have it better than we've ever had it before. 

Don't Forget Your Algorithm Flash Boy

We have some pretty fancy math here at CFRN. We don't tout it as an Algo, but we could I suppose. We've color coded things for simplicity and we honestly hide all the dirty work behind the scenes. The heavy lifting, the grunting and squealing... all you hear are Michael's dulcet tones. Cool, calm, collected, pointing you towards the next trade. 

Our math is fluent in over 7 languages. 

 

  • S&P500
  • Russell
  • Gold
  • Crude
  • Soybeans
  • Natural Gas
  • Euro

 

and those are just the ones we discuss outside the family office. Our math was never designed around speed, the cornerstone of what we do is called opportunity. At some point, the car moving so fast the driver can't see is bound to crash and burn. At our speed, we still have time to think, to analyze, to make decisions that are in our best interest. 

 

Don't Take my Word For It

I'm just another voice on the internet. Why should you believe me? You shouldn't... not yet. First, come see what I've just told you. Watch our Lead Trader in action as he puts on and takes off trades in real time, with real money, in front of real people. 

Once you see it, we'll even let you try it. Take the controls and go for a spin around the track. In fact, take 5 days. At the end of 5 days ask yourself which makes more sense:

 

  • Skimming a penny off a million trades in a week? ($10k profit)
  • Making 2 points a day (8 ticks) as a 20 contract trader in a week? ($10k profit)

 

Remember now, according to the writer at Forbes, choice #1 requires:

High-speed fiber optics lines to exchange servers, precise algorithms and the budget to finance all of the latest software and hardware.

While choice #2 simply requires you to come hang out with us for a week at no charge. Chances are you already have a computer. In fact, if you're reading this... thank a teacher, if you're reading it in English, thank a soldier, if you're reading it on the Internet, thank Al Gore.

Seriously, our 90 day course is designed to make you Guru Free Forever. Once you have our software and learn how to read a chart, you've been set free. On top of that, the price probably has 2 less commas than you're thinking of right now. 

There has never been a better time than now to take advantage of the "Chicken Little Sky Is Falling" mentality on Wall Street. It's like slam dunking a basketball with a step-ladder from Home Depot. Don't believe me? Smart man. Come see it for yourself....

This Week In Emini Futures

(QQQ)(SPY)(GLD)(DIA)(TSLA)

 

Global Markets Await Employment Data

It's been a wild ride this week from the S&P 500 Emini, to the Russell Emini... Soybeans, Crude, Gold, Natural Gas, even Lean Hogs have been spiked with unusual volatility. In just a few hours we have 2 high impact news events headed our way:

Nonfarm Payrolls measures the change in the number of people employed during the previous month, excluding the farming industry. Job creation is the foremost indicator of consumer spending, which accounts for the majority of economic activity.

The Unemployment Rate measures the percentage of the total work force that is unemployed and actively seeking employment during the previous month.

Both of these are movers and shakers, second only perhaps to an FOMC Announcement. These reports due out @ 8:30am EST, will play a deciding role in whether or not US and Global Markets post a positive net change for the week. A third "high impact" economic event will happen today, but well after Wall Street is closed. This report is due out @ 9pm EST. 

Chinese Trade Balance measures the difference in value between imported and exported goods and services over the reported period. A positive number indicates that more goods and services were exported than imported.

This report is important in and of its own right, but perhaps even more so because Wall Street will not have a chance to react until Sunday night when Globex opens. Last Sunday night we were absorbing not only a high impact economic report from China which transpired over the weekend, we were also glued to the Tube, Twitter and News Wire for reports out of Ukraine. As a result, stocks were pummeled, crude was pumped and gold shined as bright as ever.

If you feel a sense of Deja Vu' 72 hours from now... well now you know why.

 

S&P Gaps Lower On Globex Open

One week ago today, the S&P 500 Emini Futures closed the week inside of a CFRN E-mini Weekly trading Zone at 1860.75. Two days later on the Sunday night Globex open, price on the S&P Emini opened at 1846 a 15 point drop. Why? China - Russia - Ukraine 

As Wall Street opened Monday morning, stocks were near their lows while both Gold and Crude were soaring. I have 3 charts to show you exactly how it looked - 

 

S&P 500 Emini Globex Open 03/02/14

 

Crude Globex Open 03/02/14

 

Gold Globex Open 03/02/14

S&P 500 Emini Day Trading Charts

Let's define Day Trading - intererstingly enough "Day Trading" is considered a noun. If you've ever done any day trading, it feels a lot more like a verb... an action verb.

Buying and selling (round trip) commodities, equities, options, futures contracts, or currencies, in the same trading session for the purpose of profiting from relatively small price fluctuations.

S&P 500 | What Is it? How Do I Trade It?

The S&P 500 created by Standard & Poor's in 1957 is not a stock, but instead a stock market index which groups together 500 publicly traded companies. The S&P 500 is considered to be both a bellwether for the U.S. economy and a benchmark for a vast number of index funds, exchange traded funds and mutual funds. Based on the newspaper or website you use, current price and performance can usually be found under one of the following symbols > ^GSPC, INX, and $SPX. Don't be confused by the different symbols as they all refer to the S&P 500 Cash Index.

S&P 500 Posts All Time Historic High

S&P 500 Posts All Time Historic High Against Backdrop of Global Economic Woes

Cash flows in from all points... It's the beginning of a new quarter, we have a loose cannon threatening the world with his thermo-nuclear pop gun and Europe is broke. Historically April is a strong month for stocks and both US and Global investors desperate for a return, are putting their money to work and fund managers couldn't be happier.

We watch the hubris with a cautious eye, a steady hand.. and a hard stop. This house of cards could come tumbling down faster than a DDOS attack on the Bitcoin mint. Exactly. We called it, it happened, but honestly officer.. we had nothing to do with it.
