Emini trading results - 10 screenshots this month

As you can easily see in this page.

All of these ten and all you can see in this page and in the "I can do it too!" section of my site have been accomplished using KING, an e-mini day trading methodology.

Yes, KING rules...

E-micros - the little siblings of e-mini futures

What do satellites and futures have in common?

If you are not a scientist you may not know this, but satellites and futures do have something in common. Even if not a lot. But then again, many a trader or a wanna-be trader may not know this either. And perhaps they should.

A new article that talks about emini futures little siblings, e-micros, explains this.

Yet another full week of emini day trading results

The third one this year.

Last year I have shown 10 week long (or longer) samples of my day trading results accomplished using KING, an emini day trading methodology of my creation that I use for my trading as well.

What's cool about this week is that it ends with a screenshot showing trades spanning only a period of 30 minutes (in fact, even less than that) and that 4 out of today's 6 trades did not take even a whole minute.

And it's 10 bucks per minute, or actually even more (see below).

"Emini trading systems," "emini trading course" and other emini trading keywords

I check from time to time how my site, eminimethods.com, places in Google and other search engines for some relevant emini trading keywords and must say that I am pretty pleased with what I see. Especially lately.

I am back to number 1 in Google for "emini trading systems" and on the first page of Google for "emini trading course" and again at 15 for the very same keyword. While I have traditionally been pretty high in Google, in the top 3-5, for the first of these keywords, I have never been particularly high for the second one, but still usually at the top or near it on page 2 of results.

I have been consistently number 1 for "emini basics" for years now, and I am listed in the top twenty 3 times altogether for this very keyword. Of course, I am also on the first page of Google for "emini trading results," but that's rather to be expected.

I rank well in other search engines too, although probably not as consistently high as in Google. On the other hand, Google is known for reshuffling the rankings from time to time, which is not always a nice thing to experience, but after a while things get back to normal.

That's nice, for sure, but I have been meaning to revamp my site's design for a while now and I have a problem. It was a pretty snappy looking site by the standards of 2005 when I launched it, but it was nearly 7 years ago, and that's pretty much a lifetime when it comes to the web design.

The problem is whether making my site prettier will not make it duller for the search engines. After all, they seem to care more about contents than anything else, which explains why even a site as simple as mine can stand out in Google, or Yahoo, or Bing.

I have to give it some more thought. As much as I am tempted to revamp it, I am not sure if doing so is really such a good idea from the business point of view.

Emini day trading business as usual or how was your Friday the 13th?

Today is yet another Friday the 13th.

If you are one of those fellows known as paraskevidekatriaphobics, that is, people afflicted with a morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th, you probably chose to stay at home and do nothing.

But if you are not, I hope that today was as good a day for you as it was for some of us out there. Like yours truly, ahem.


And did I mention that these trades were executed using KING, an emini day trading methodology? Yes, just like many others showcased in these sections.

Handling complexity or how to improve your odds of success trading emini futures

There are many ways to skin the cat and there is more than one way to make money trading emini futures.

Some ways may be better than others, and while none of them can claim the ultimate superiority, many of them go unquestioned and when subjected to a closer scrutiny turn out based on less than respectable foundations.

Among those are the trading methods that insist on simplicity as if it were easy to define or as if it were to guarantee success. Considering that the markets are inherently complex, the idea that simple methods can somehow be superior to those that are not is not particularly convincing.

Things, as Albert Einstein once put it, should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler. I think that applies to financial markets too, and learning how to handle their complexity may provide an edge not attainable to those seeking to simplify things, if only because most traders believe simplicity to be the way to go.

 You don't want to be doing what the majority of market participants are doing. Trading is not a popularity contest.

 For more about this issue, check out a recent article of mine posted here.
