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:

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. :)


Kind Regards,

April 24th 2019: Nipping Losing Streak at 2 Days

April 25th 2019: Sell The NEWS Finally Works but …

Funded Trader

Here is where all the information of being a funded trader at TopStep Trader will reside.

TopStepTrader Funded Pro Account Trading 15 Lessons

Day 1: June 10th 2019 Plus 5 Ticks

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.

Day 2: June 11th 2019 Plus 5 Ticks

Another breakeven day trading session in the crude oil futures market.

Day 3: June 12th 2019 CLPIT Strategy Plus 49 Ticks

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.

Day 4: June 13th 2019 CLPower Plus 18 Ticks

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.

Day 5: June 14th 2019 Plus 80 Ticks for the Week

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).

Day 6: June 17th 2019 Plus 3 Ticks

Another day of a new trading account high, it won't happen forever but it is nice as long as it keeps doing it.

Day 7: June 18th 2019 Lost 44 Ticks

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.

Day 8: June 19th 2019: Crude Oil Inventory Plus FOMC Day

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.

Day 9: June 20th 2019: Buy The Rumor Sell The News What It Means

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.

Day 10: June 21st 2019: Just A Bunch of Adams

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 ... 

Day 11: June 24th 2019: Another Day in the Life of the Pro Funded Account

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.

Day 12: June 25th 2019: Make the Most of Your Day

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.

Day 13: June 26th 2019 Another Day Another Dollar ... Tough Day Trading 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.

Day 14: June 27th 2019: Minus 47 Ticks Today

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.

Day 15: June 28th 2019: Plus 54 Ticks Day Trading Crude Oil Today

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.
