In the futures trade

A bad trader can improve with time.

A bad trade usually doesn’t.

A stop-loss means you don’t die at sea.

A tight stop-loss…

Means you get nicked.

Not stabbed.

The true enemy of the trader is not the market…

But thyself.

You gotta be in it to win it.

Never a more true statement when trading the markets.

"I must not fear.

Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Would this kind of trading be considered as Martingale strategy?

For me personally this strategy is just too agressive…
700% in a month (with 54%DD) simply can’t be sustainable in long term.
I rather follow a strategy with 7% profit a month and low DD.

I guess you will have more subscribers if you slow down and open max 1-2 contracts per trade.

Good luck.

Roger that Newt…

Point taken.

why do you have 2 accounts?

Initially, the accounts were to trade separate products. That plan was scrapped.
As of 6/6/22(today), the WINIOM strategy will no longer be active.
I will only be trading the ILLUMINATUS strategy after today.

In a low volatility market
Most look to indicators.
Charts and VWAP.
Signs from above maybe…

Can be a lot of work at times.

In high volatility
The market does all the work.

One need only act accordingly.

HI VIX more money this market is where options are less volatile and $SKEW.X is 120 now, check my strategy called ONLY MES, 5 months 660% profit

When the trader was asked what are you focusing on improving next week…

The trader replied.

EVERYTHING.

For what reason did you switch strategies? … if I may ask.

The performance of your new strategy is certainly impressive…
compared to many other C2 strategies that lost money in the last few days.
But we wonder how long can you keep up this high performance?

Apart from the performance, I especially like the low 35% winning trades, meaning that the strategy has many small losses and a few bigger wins.

I see that most of your subscribers are limiting the contracts to max 1-2 open at the same time, limiting the risk this way. Does the strategy still work in this case?

The whole trade thing is crazy a little.
Or you gotta be a little crazy too do it.

Or both.

It wasn’t really a quitting of the WINIOM strategy. My intent was to trade the MYM and MNQ separately.
The MYM on it’s own would produce a much lower drawdown. Thus I would offer a lower risk strategy, to compliment an “It’s my money and I want it now” strategy.

The high performance doesn’t feel high to me. By feel I mean, during the trade the money doesn’t look big. It feels normal.

It’s much easier to maintain normal.

As for working with 1 to 2 contracts.
I think it will work because the initial entry/position is usually the best market entry price of the trade. If the trade goes on to win.

But is it the most optimal way…

Not if you won’t the full meal deal.

At the end of the session.
Ask yourself what you wish you hadn’t done.

Think of how it left you feeling.

Strive not to feel that way again.

Indeed.

Successful trading is all about not repeating the same mistakes over and over again.

Things us traders just can’t seem to accept at times…
.

If your trade is 150 ticks against your religion.

You’ve lost that round.

Technical Knockout.

Consistency doesn’t mean always right.

It just means you frequently birth the same picture.

As a Trader…

I know they preach set daily profit goals.
500 a day.
1000 a day.

You would be better served making what you can make daily.
Consistently.

Then franchise that.
Via C2 autotrade scaling.

If it seems you almost daily come across a couple of hundred dollars real safe and smooth-like…

Box that up.
Then replicate it.
