About this course
Welcome! This is the basic guts of the course and why it was so "inexpensive" because we will build this course together over time.
The recordings of the live day trading room will be made available the day after the live session. Right now, most of this course is being built on the fly. I have a lot of information for you to review here: https://123DayTrade.com/Members
If you are NEW to Futures Trading, then I would suggest you start here:
The next logical step would be to learn more about me and the way I will approach the markets:
Finally, what kind of day trading setups will you see me take inside the live session:
This should get you started on what I believe and what to expect from my live day trading room that will showcase my CL Power Day Trading Strategy Course (Crude Oil Power).
Once again, WELCOME! There will be other modules being added in the near future. The first module will be the Combine, then Funded Trader Preparation, and finally Funded Trader.
You can expect a lot of bonus material in another module as I develop out this course from scratch. Lots of information to share and it will take some time to get it from my head to this course. Another reason why the course right now is a single investment and no recurring charges.
In other words, you were rewarded with a one time payment because of the trust and faith you put in me before I reached FTP at Topstep Trader. :)
P.S. On this message, I talk about Demio. I do not have a live day trading room any longer. All the video content is below in the CLPower Day Trading Course now.
This module is all the tech stuff you need to get started day trading. Once again, it will be built as we progress through the course.
Your first step is to enroll in the Demio Live Webinar.
Here is where you will find the Trading Spreadsheet.
Here is where all the combine information for my day trading with TopStep Trader.
Some Prelims and other stuff ...
Stop placement can be one of the toughest things you will have to decide as a trader ...
So is trading on FOMC in the Crude Oil Market a good, bad or ugly thing to do overall? Find out ...
Everything in trading works after the fact ...
Ever feel like you are in tune with the market, but it isn't ready to trade?
There were 3 trades on the day trading session in the crude oil futures market for a total of plus 47 ticks.
I thought what to say about today ... and the setup I used was what I call the "tiebreaker" to go short today ...
Did ok overall ... the inventory report was a no show ... Gann Magic Number was hit today (the golden ratio number).
Basically, running a fever and called it early for trading on the day ...
I went to the Dr today and have the flu ... no trading today ... this is a great short setup though.
Here is a valid LONG or SHORT setup that I have noticed ... time is the best teacher sometimes to help you get better at day trading.
Sometimes its best to trade for another day and move on ...
Hopefully, just a minor setback. I should have traded better, but it wasn't meant to be.
Some good information shared today on what I consider a low volatile market and when the market finally started to pick up steam ...
There will be no trading today. I have my kidney stone appointment today.
Only able to catch (short) had a DR appt early.
So getting ever closer to the next step here at TST ... I had 5 trades today for a net of 54 ticks during the trading session.
So today was one of those days ... we had a surprise in the inventory number, but no price action to work with.
So today during the trading session, I finally was able to pass the combine at TST.
Here is where all the information concerning FTP will reside at TopStepTrader (TST).
During today's day trading, I was able to hold this trade for one hour and twelve minutes ...
We rolled from May to June today in the crude oil futures market ... overall a breakeven trading day.
Being patient and knowing your trading limits is another key to overall trading success over the years ...
Today was an event and news related trading day ... but the move happens before my trading time in USA open ... I tried to catch a top and the Close 30 strategy ... but lost 6 ticks overall on 4 trades today. Iran VS USA in Crude Oil ... News.
Today, we continued our efforts to "sell the news" ... finished down 11 ticks for trading day.
Today was the CLPIT strategy, but honestly the market hasn't really given much of anything. The best trade of the session was a short without volume today. This could have been worth 3P. I wasn't able to catch it.
Sell the news from Iran finally works today, but I wasn't able to capture the trade into the last half hour of day trading today. My mom is in town and I needed to take her to the DR. I sure hope you got it! We talked about it today!!
First trade was a long trade setup for a 3P win ... worth 42 ticks. For the day up 26 ticks and a new trading account high.
So today I was looking for a continuation of the short from Friday to continue into Monday ... this didn't happen to the degree that I would have like to have seen, but it was a positive trading day overall.
There was a nice short movement early in the trading session, but it went without me today. I tried to catch the low of the day later on the session.
We were lucky to get out alive with some gain today. It was not a really TRENDY type of day trading day today. I was able to capture 15 ticks profit overall day trading in the crude oil futures market.
Here is what I think ... 11 days and only 600 gain isn't bad, but it isn't great either ... I know I can do better than this effort. I need to trade and see the market much better. Trust my signals and maximize profit.
Yesterday, I had one of those trading days you would want to get back. It's the kind of day that really can eat at your confidence as a trader. But, today was a new day to trade. It pays to have a short term memory to allow yourself to move on.
Restarted my day trading again today from a week off and regrouping. I was able to get a little gain on the trading session. Although, it could have been a 178 tick winning day today.
So what is the Gann Square of Nine and how do you trade it? Find out ... that trade was on part 3 of my videos today. Enjoy!!
Today in our day trading room we had a rather heated discussion as we talked about the pros and cons of buying/selling into a losing position and my thoughts on the subject.
I had an overall losing day of 7 ticks on 5 trades today.
Some day trading days are not exciting ... you just breakeven and move to the next day trading session.
Taking another look at my day trading ... and utilizing my lines of support and resistance off my high volume bars a little better here. This is the beginning of a new concept I am working out in real time day trading crude oil futures.
Do you ever wish for a day back in your day trading?
Here is a 3 video session on May 21st enjoy!!
Here is where all the information of being a funded trader at TopStep Trader will reside.
Today earned 9 ticks overall day trading crude oil on the first day in the Pro Account at TST. The trading video I believe only shows 5 ticks, but I finished up 9 ticks on the day trading session overall.
Another breakeven day trading session in the crude oil futures market.
Finally caught a nice winning trade, but it took me 8 trades to get to 49 ticks. The crude oil futures market kept on retracing during the trading session. The last hour went down a dollar, but I was already finished on day trading crude oil market.
Just a breakeven kind of day ... most of the move in the Crude oil Futures happened prior to the USA open. In fact, most of the move happened during the Chinese and Japanese markets last night.
Today, I finished up 13 ticks on 9 trades today. The Crude Oil market made a move, but it went up in a stairstep fashion and retraced me out of the total move. Overall, I finished up 80 ticks for the first week in the Pro Funded Account here at TopStepTrader (TST).
Another day of a new trading account high, it won't happen forever but it is nice as long as it keeps doing it.
The news drove today ... it's all about IRAN ... I was the cannon fodder to the up move. I had no business shorting this market above 52.78 today. This was the FIB 2/3rd number ... it was the 3rd time to it and busted out to the top of a range for a high of 54.53 in today's crude oil futures trading.
It was a tougher trading day during the day trading session. Overall, I had 11 trades for 11 ticks. The last trade is not shown, but it was a 2 tick winner towards the 1:15PM CST mark. The crude oil market didn't show much push either way today.
Every trader is continually learning and experiencing growth in their personal trading. Today was a new learning experience for me in the crude oil futures market.
In life, you have the people that love you, others that respect you, and others that like to pick on you (the haters in life). Trading is all about how you control not only your trading, but your emotional well being too. Life is short ...
So I was able to get away from the abyss today. Can I turn the pro funded trading account around from here now? I am using the open day trading strategy to get into position. It was a little bit hairy overall today. I finished up 8 ticks overall today from being down over 30 ticks.
The market went to the supply area of 5822 high. There is a supply area between 5820 and 59.00 in the crude oil futures market. Most of the gain on trading was made on the up into the supply area today.
Some days it is just a good thing to be able to fight for another day trading day ... this was one of those days where I was down 34 ticks to come back 40 ticks and happy to be even on the day.
So this is the tale of two cities ... if I follow my day trading open strategy I make 34 ticks on 2 trades to open the day up and then a nice 2P move down happens right after that ... the issue is always TIME at TST. And confidence to know I can make it to the next level as a day trader.
So today, I made a step in the right direction towards the $5K profit target ... hopefully ... this is the start of the move up now, finally.
