12th weekly cycle of e-mini trading results

Just a few weeks ago, I mentioned here the 10th such a cycle this year. By the cycle, I mean 5 trading days in a row, that is, a full week, not counting weekends when trading is really not going on.

I posted the screenshot that completes that last cycle in the section that features my daily e-mini trading results in 2012. The screenshot shows 10 trades, 8 of which are winners. But that's not the whole story.

That's because I traded some more after posting the screenshot, feeling pretty good both mentally and physically, and so I was even a bit surprised to produce 16 trades in total with no additional losers.

I say that I was surprised because that's the biggest number of trades I took in a single trading session this year and recently I have been battling some intestinal problems that certainly affect my stamina, and not in any positive way, to say the least. That's not a record by any measure, especially if compared to these results, but nothing to sneeze at, either.

Well, I hope that spells better days ahead for my health. And here is the screenshot with all 16 trades.

More screenshots of NinjaTrader indicators for KING

I just posted some more, 5 in total.

You can check out all of them on the same page that features NinjaTrader 7 indicators for KING, an emini trading methodology (or emini trading course).

I may add some more later this year, or perhaps early next one.

NinjaTrader is a very fine charting and trading platform that you can use free for simulated trading and analysis, which is one of the main reasons why it is so popular among traders. It is also popular among my KING clients, most of whom use this very platform.

365th daily emini trading results screenshot

I posted it a while ago on my site, in its section that features screenshots with daily e-mini trading results for this year. I doubt you will see screenshot number 500, but 400 is still likely, not sooner then next year, though.

The results have been accomplished using KING, an emini day trading methodology that is basically an extensive e-mini trading course for futures traders, although some of my clients may trade Forex as well.

It's been very much exactly 4 years since I started posting screenshots like that on my site. It's likely that next year will be the last year for KING.

Assorted Links - not only for e-mini trading buffs

I added a new section to my site, or more like an article that will grow with new additions of some links of interest to traders, emini traders in particular, but not only. It is called "Assorted Links - for emini trading buffs and not only."

It is located at this address. I plan to update it more than once a month, if my time permits and I have something interesting to include on this list, so you may want to check it out from time to time.

A tale of two brains

Or how men and women use them. Their brains, that is. At least, as viewed by Mark Gungor in his entertaining seminar.

In two videos, both embedded below, for your watching convenience. Enjoy!

Trading at the speed of light ...

and some other stories from the world of quants, arguably, the most sophisticated of contemporary traders who rely heavily on the tools of modern math and computer engineering.

You can hear them watching this documentary.



To some, it was the over-reliance on such high math and high tech tools that brought about the Great Recession we are still recovering from, a topic addressed in the documentary, while to others it was the lack of proper human control over the financial risk that mathematical models will never be able to reflect faithfully enough. 

One of the quants featured in the film is a man named Mike Osinski. You can read his reflections on the life and work on Wall Street leading up to the financial crisis of 2007-2008 in this New York Magazine article.

Eminimethods.com is down - today's results posted here

Today is September 10th.

My site, eminimethods.com, is down because godaddy.com that hosts my site is down. Anonymous claims the responsibility. I am all against censoring the Internet, which Anonymous accuses godaddy.com of participating in, but I am also against actions that hurt businesses that happen to be using godaddy.com servers.

Here is more about it.

And here is today's trading results that I wanted to post on my site, but could not because of this. Achieved using KING, as always.

The 10th sequence of full week e-mini trading results

That's a long title, but a pretty precise one as you would probably expect from a scientist by training, at least once in a while.

The details can be found on my site, in the section that deals with my emini day trading results in 2012. And the scoop is basically this: today I completed yet another full week of trading using KING ideas with the results posted on my site. It turns out it's the 10th such a week this year.

Just a brief note.
