Market volatility and KING

I am not trading much these days. This has to do with some personal/family issues and I mentioned this in my earlier posts this year (for instance here) and on Twitter. Also, the thin skinned man-child, currently serving as the president of these United States of America is not particularly conducive to high (or any) performance, if I am to be honest.

Hence, I am also not posting much here and not tweeting my results live as I used to for 3 years (or so) in a row.

But I do hear a lot from people interested in KING. Like all the time.

Many of these interested end up buying it. Smart people, but that's just an opinion not a fact, though rather justified. Smart people tend to prefer evidence that something works rather than just an exciting marketing spiel, and there is so much evidence on my site that it may actually overwhelm some. Or, to paraphrase Donald the Great, there is so much winning there that you can get sick of it.

Well, life is tough, so deal with it. I worked on that evidence hard too. Many years, hundreds of days with trading results, close to 2000 trades tweeted in near-real time (see my Twitter media gallery for that).

The markets these days may not be particularly volatile, which does not help trading them, to say the least. A very recent e-mail I have just received from one of those interested in KING has to do with this issue. Namely, how KING is doing in these conditions.

The screenshot below shows my reply, which I just sent out, that I hope may be of some interest and value to the potential KING buyers and beginning traders in general, especially e-mini futures traders.


Click on it to see it in its full glory.

To reiterate what I say there, KING should be better for the low volatility conditions than many competing products of this kind for day trading e-mini futures markets.

The link in the e-mail points to this article, where the issue of volatility was also discussed. It's still pretty recent.

KING is still only $1200, meaning selling at a discount. Eventually, when I am in a better mood to market it more aggressively, its price will return to a well-deserved a grand and a half. Meanwhile, enjoy a good deal. You don't have to be a genius to know it is a good deal.

Obama and Trump - the yin and yang of socialism for the rich

I don't like Trump and I did mention it on this blog a few times in the recent past (see this article, for instance). I think he is a disaster, but that's what we've got and have to live with it. I also think that Barack Obama and the leadership of the Democratic Party are to blame for Trump, among other things.

Listen to this Jimmy Dore's epic rant to understand why. I just came across it.



Both Obama and Trump are part of a problem, rather than a solution: they are elitists with the sense of entitlement too big to allow them to see the issues the ordinary people face. I see little difference between them, some subtleties that their supporters love to argue about are of cosmetic nature, so I will not bother with them here.

Barack Obama, as has been recently announced, is about to get paid a cool $400,000 for a 90 minute speech. The money is going to come from a Wall Street investment bank. Yes, the guy who ran on the "hope and change" platform in 2008, which included regulating Wall Street's hazardous business practices and who did precious little to that end, is getting paid back for playing nicely. Apparently, hypocrisy is not the same when it applies to a former president and when it applies to a Joe Schmoe. If only because there will always be throngs of partisans to excuse it in the former case.

How exactly is this guy different from the CEOs who get golden parachutes and huge bonuses for doing little to nothing and sometimes even running their companies into the ground? What kind of risks has he taken to deserve this kind of money?

I have a good deal of respect for people like Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, who made it big by taking risks. Dropping out of college (Harvard, not a bad school, in both cases)  is taking some risk in order to launch a business. And that just for starters. These people can demand all the money they want because they created the businesses that not only made them rich, but a number of their employers or investors as well.

In contrast, Marissa Meyer, a most recent Yahoo! CEO who failed to make the company successful is getting a $100 million golden parachute! That's morally criminal to me! And that's just one recent example.

You know why this is possible, why this is happening? Because she, Barack Obama, and their ilk, have rigged the game. And you aren't even part of it.

I find it both mind-boggling and offensive that some liberals are even trying to justify that $400,000 speaking fee. They go as far as to suggest that anyone objecting to it is plainly a racist. Apparently, they do not realize that the race card has been stale for some time. They keep talking how bad Trump is in comparison as if that changed a thing. Pathetic at best and sure evidence that they have learned nothing from the last election.

Incidentally, just to set the record straight: I am a retail trader. I compete with Wall Street, and I am not too big to fail, so their pain is not really my pain, and I am pretty sure they give no damn about my pain either. I was also rooting for Obama in 2008; it took me about a year to realize that his trademark "hope and change" was just a lie. I have been an independent all my adult life.

Taking an extended break from running business

I am taking a longer break from running my business that specializes in trading education. Running it at full speed, so to speak, that is. I am also trading rather rarely these days, and not posting my trade results to Twitter in real time (or in any other way) as I used to do for over 3 years.

Yes, over 3 years, and there are about 1800 screenshots with trade results in my Twitter media gallery to prove it.

I do plan to resume running my business more intensively, which, in particular, means keeping my site more frequently updated and posting more often to this blog, but because of some recent family events, that you may know of if you own KING, I am afraid that I have lost a bit of mojo and motivation, which given the circumstances may not be so unusual.

But, I'll be back.



And when this happens, I will return with a KING trading forum too. Already very much overdue. As are the KING indicators for NinjaTrader 8, which were developed a few weeks ago already, but I am struggling to put the final touches on the whole package, which should include information about them, the way to import them, etc. What used to be a rather easy task now it's taking me an inordinate amount of time because I find it boring and not very much fulfilling.

Sorry that it's been taking me that long. I was hoping it would not too.

But I do want to have them delivered in March. And to update my site in March as well.

Because of this situation, I am also extending the generous KING discount until the last day of March. After that date, the price will go up to $1500 or so.

Of course, I do reply to e-mail questions regarding KING and other trading products I sell on my site, but not beyond that. But then again, these days way too many people want something from me that may be good for their business, but of little or no value to mine, so I don't even bother responding to emails of this sort any more.

KING, to those new to it, is an excellent (if I may say so - I don't want to sound too much like Donald Trump) e-mini futures day trading course with an unsurpassed amount of evidence that it can work for you. The last part is no hype. You can see this evidence on my site and in my twitter feed mentioned above.

And that's the memo.

Some updates related to KING

First, in case you did not notice it, KING is still being offered at a discount of $300 compared to its next price, which will be $1500.

Since I rarely update my e-mini futures site these days, I decided to keep the price of this fine futures day trading course for another few weeks beyond December 31st. That's a bit of tradition too when it comes to my business in that I tend to extend discounts I offer on my trading products, KING being the main of them. But I may not offer them every year.

Lets call this extended discount the Trump inauguration discount if only in jest. I just mentioned this on Twitter too (see the tweet below).
Second, I am finishing my work on KING indicators for NinjaTrader 8 and they will be released this month for sure, probably around January 25th. If you own KING and are a KING customer in good standing, you are entitled to purchase them. Being in good standing means simply not being in violation of any legal contract you agreed to honor when you purchased KING.

I am pleased to say that over 98% of my KING clients fall into this category.

The image below shows the NinjaTrader chart of YM, the Dow Jones e-mini futures market, the recommended market to day trade if you are the KING trader, but hardly the only one that KING can handle. The chart shows some color bars and dots (yellow and green), which are part of the 1 minute chart you use for trading with KING. Of course, there is more than that, more indicators, but those are hidden from the view. You get to see all of them if you are a KING client.


The indicators are very similar to the KING indicators for NinjaTrader 7 (see here for some images), but simplified a bit, perhaps nicer looking a bit as well. It took me 2-3 weeks to develop them, working a few hours a day, not every day, though. NinjaScript, a subset of C#, in which these indicators are written, has changed compared to NinjaTrader 8, so I could not just rewrite the code, but had to learn it anew in some cases.

NinjaTrader 8 indicators for KING coming soon

As soon as as the first quarter of 2017, but probably even in January 2017.

The thing about NinjaTrader is that every major upgrade of it requires the developer to rewrite the indicators or strategies for this platform. That's not very convenient, to say the least.

Also, not very common in this business. TradeStation, MultiCharts, Sierra Chart and other similar charting packages do not require recoding. But since NinjaTrader is a very popular platform, probably more than most, you are just bound to do it.

Speaking of KING, an e-mini futures day trading course, I am still offering it at a holiday discount. In January 2017 or perhaps when the NinjaTrader 8 indicators are released, its price will go up to $1500.

Also, the KING trading forum has been moved to a new permanent domain and will soon be reopened. Hopefully, it will become the best e-mini futures trading forum around.

KING's Christmas Holiday Special

Only $1200, so that's a generous 20% discount as the regular price is $1500 now. Good until the end of 2016.

It's the last time I am offering this excellent e-mini futures day trading course at this price simply because I am very busy with other things and spending very little time on marketing this year. I have also been forced to spend more time on fighting criminals of various stripes over these past 12 months, usually Putin's "patriots," or Russian lowlifes.

Last year there was no holiday special and I doubt it will be one next year.

You can find out more about KING in this section of my site. It's pretty rich, so perhaps you should check out this recent article about how this trading course differs from other products of this type on the market. Or why to choose it.

You can also check out this article about KING's trading philosophy.

And don't forget to check out my Twitter media feed where you will find over 1,800 trades posted in near real-time over the past 3 years or so. Not many traders let alone trading vendors can boast of this kind of track record. For rather obvious reasons. Even more is on my site in the results sections - yes, there are several of them.

If you are a KING trader, you win even when Hillary loses

The markets did drop quite a bit at night, as I had anticipated (see my earlier posts), and I was tempted to trade Dow Jones e-mini futures (YM), my favorite trading vehicle, on this post-election day after Donald Trump's victory starting the very night after.

I could not fall asleep and I am a night person, anyway, which also explains why I rarely trade before the noon EST (9 AM my time). Yes, I need to get some sleep - if you go to bed at 1-2 AM at the earliest, getting up before 9 AM is not that appealing. It's not always so, but quite often. Probably too often for my own good, but that's one of those habits that are just impossible to break.

I took 7 trades at night, then 18 more during the day. Not a bad trading session overall, as you can see from my last tweet today featuring my trading results. Notice that I did not use more than 4 contracts per trade, which I like to refer to as classical KING trading. You don't need a big account to do well with KING.

So how's your trading "teach" doing these days? If I may ask.
KING, an e-mini futures day trading course, based on the methodology I use for my trading, is still only $1,400.

The people are pissed off and Trump wins

I am politically independent with a libertarian bias, so I did not have a dog in this fight, as I have said first two months ago and repeated it lately somewhat sarcastically. Both major candidates were badly flawed and that's about the only thing that most Americans truly agreed on according to the polls.

But, as I have said in my last post, I was hoping Hillary would win, though I was not absolutely sure. She was a safer candidate, more predictable, more mature.

As someone who leans libertarian, I find Trump scary. I hope he will not do much damage to this country, but people who think that Putin, an authoritarian that has been in power for over 16 years either as the Russian president or prime minister, is a cool dude, are either confused or dangerous. And what's worse, not only Trump thinks so, but so do his supporters (see the image below).

Americans have no experience with authoritarians, but Europeans do. Since I was born and raised in a European country that for many decades was under communist rule, I may have more appreciation for civil liberties than those who have been taking them for granted for over two centuries.

America, this beacon of liberty, has elected for President the man who finds Putin worthy of praise and perhaps emulation. I am afraid "that's not going to be good for anybody."


But he may as well turn out to be a good president. Let's hope so. And I wish him success.

Democrats have no one to blame for this but themselves. Just as they were blaming Ralph Nader for the Bush's victory in 2000, now they are trying to blame Jill Stein for that (see the tweet below). They seem to persist in denial. That's not very inspiring, to say the least.
As I said in my last post, the markets, e-mini futures first, would tank if Trump were to win, which they did during the election night, though may stage a rebound during the day.
