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.

Another Brexit-like event?

The US presidential election is only a day away, on November 8th, and it will have serious financial consequences in addition to political ones. Not only to the US but to the rest of the world as well.

The Wall Street crowd is expecting Hillary Clinton to win, and stocks have rallied today signalling that the odds of her presidency might have improved after she had again been cleared by the FBI of any wrongdoing in an e-mail scandal, the investigation into which has been going on for many months now.

But the race is very tight, so her win may turn out to be totally illusory leading to a Brexit-like crash in the stock markets across the globe after the election night, just as was the case after the Brexit referendum (see the tweet below).
I don't think this will be the case.

I expect Hillary Clinton to win and the markets to rally, but I could be wrong just like anyone else. In fact, like many, I was expecting the Remain side to win the UK referendum on staying or leaving the EU, because I honestly did not see the point in leaving.

And I still don't. While many try to rationalize this, I think it's pointless because the irrational behavior cannot be rationalized. Voters can be as irrational as traders or investors often are.  Reason is highly underutilized by most members of our species.

Hillary Clinton is a flawed candidate, as I said on this blog not long ago. In some ways perhaps even more than Donald Trump. But she is also more predictable, more mature, and so more acceptable to investors because if there is one thing that markets don't like it is uncertainty which can be a drag on business and economy.

Still, if you are a trader you can make money trading such events. Especially using tools like KING that are well suited for more volatile trading environments.

Manifesting abundance Maria Bamford's way

Maria Bamford is an incredibly funny comedienne.

Yet, not particularly well-known. I have discovered her only this year. She is certainly more original, more entertaining than many of her colleagues in business.

Here's a piece of her monologue that I found particularly funny. It starts ca 17:15 time mark and it's about using a vision board to manifest abundance. Or something.



The whole thing is worth listening to, if you have time - it's about 50 minutes long.

Useful quotes for traders and not only

A week or so ago I tweeted a quote from a well-known philosopher and psychologist, Erich Fromm.
This squares nicely with the theory of positive disintegration by a Polish psychiatrist, Kazimierz DÄ…browski, which views tension and anxiety as necessary for growth.

A few hours later, I also tweeted a link to one of the articles on my site dedicated primarily to day trading e-mini futures that features quotes that many a trader or pretty much anyone else would probably find useful.

I just updated this article with some more quotes, one featured on this blog when 2015 started and the one by Mr. Fromm. And also one by Richard Feynman, a famous theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner.

It may be a good idea to re-read these quotes from time to time, especially when you are stuck in life or in your business that may or may not have anything to do with trading.

Or during a crazy presidential election campaign when you can't make up your mind which of the main candidates is a lesser threat to the society at large. In which case, voting for Cthulhu makes so much sense. Because why settle for a lesser evil.

Moving my site to another host

I am pretty busy with rather boring and time consuming things these days, so not much posting here and not much tweeting.

I am moving my site, eminimethods.com, to another host.

That means moving its domain and also the server that hosts the site files. I think that my next site, if I ever decide to launch one, will be based on the WordPress platform. Much easier to post to and easy to maintain too compared to a static site.

That means that my site may go down, perhaps even for a day or two, at some point in the next few weeks. I may also suspend my commercial activity, but not only because of that, also because other things may keep me from responding to orders and e-mail in a reasonably prompt manner.

I will probably also inform you about it on my site, closer to the whole operation, but it's just so much easier to do so on this blog, so I am doing it here first.

I am moving my site from GoDaddy.com to Namecheap.com. I have not been particularly happy with GoDaddy lately.

Not only are their prices not very competitive any more, but in some ways, they are practically corporate criminals, interested only in money, lacking elementary decency to their loyal customers when their customers need them most, which is perhaps even worse. That has been my experience with them, the GoDaddy.com Abuse Department in the first place, over the last year or so. It's time to send a message by moving my business elsewhere, and in fact, lowering my business costs a bit too - while the latter is of somewhat secondary importance, it's a nice bonus, for sure.

13 trades on September 13th ... sort of

As can be seen from my two tweets from today's trading session.
The trades are in the Dow Jones e-mini futures market, whose ticker symbol is YM. This is my favorite day trading market.

They were taken using my day trading methodology, KING. All you need to know about KING, a fine e-mini futures trading course based on this methodology, and much more, is on my website dedicated primarily to day trading the e-mini futures markets, preferred markets of many retail traders these days.
