George IV claims yet another total victory

George IV, an e-mini futures day trading system for Dow Jones and S&P 500 e-mini futures markets delivered yet another knock-out.

That would be 60 points in YM and 6 points in ES.

See the updates on my site.

It pays off ...

It pays off to have George IV on your side even on the days it struggles a bit. Like today. The proof follows. George IV is an e-mini futures day trading system for YM and ES. See my site for more about it.

More perfect e-mini futures scalping

I call my e-mini futures scalping with KING perfect when I don't have to add to my position even once. This happens rarely, but it does from time to time.

Here is another example of that. From today, via my last trading Twitter update embedded below. The market traded is YM, the Dow Jones e-mini futures market.

Another signal by George IV - over 120 points in profits

Well, almost. And in hypothetical discretionary profits only.

I don't count this signal in a mechanical manner as one (rather subtle) condition was not met, but had you acted at the right time (as the system suggests), you would have scored not a mere 60 points in YM, the Dow e-mini futures, but even more than twice of that!

Gee, what a bad luck, in a way, but that also reinforces my opinion that using this system in a discretionary manner gives you much better trading opportunities.

Sadly, I chose not to trade today, even woke up too late to take advantage of this, but that's still one more evidence of what this system can deliver. Quite a bit, I think.

For more about the recent performance of this e-mini day trading system, check out this page dedicated to this issue.

Well, I decided to trade eventually, though a bit late even by my standards, but that can happen from time to time. Better late than never, especially on a good, volatile day like today.

The final result of my today's battle with Mr. Market is embedded below. Many 10-pointers, and many quickies.

Twitter followers and accolades

Not so long ago, I was thrilled to have 140 Twitter followers. Now, I have over 160.

And these are not just any followers. They are genuine followers. Yes, I know that I could easily get another 10,000 of them for a mere 20 bucks (see the next image), but let's just say that I am old-fashioned, maybe even somewhat "square," and prefer doing things my "old-fartsy" way. Well, some people are just like that. Don't worry, they will die eventually.

Recently, I have also received my first Twitter accolades and being a shameless braggart (in my "old-fartsy" way), I just posted them on my site. Ha, who could stop me!

Actually, I have been posting accolades on my site for a longer while. On its welcome page, just a sample. The last two on that page are pretty recent, form the last few months. One is from Abhijit, who lives in Toronto, the other from Alex, a resident of Singapore.

Incidentally, I have quite a few KING clients in Singapore. More than in Germany and if you consider the populations of these two countries, that says something, doesn't it? Draw your own conclusions.

And if you also consider that folks in Singapore get excellent education (see the last image), you can't possibly complain about having clients from this tiny (and yet big in other ways) country.

Needless to say, I am glad that Polish kids did very well in the last PISA tests too, though not as well as their peers in Singapore.

George IV - an e-mini futures trading system - a performance update

Well, 3 trades so far this year, all big winners. That's in a nutshell about the performance of this fine e-mini futures day trading system for YM and ES.

I keep talking about it on this blog and have been for some time, but only this month I resumed tracking its performance in a strictly mechanical manner. You can still use it for your discretionary trading though, and that's how I primarily use it in combination with KING, my discretionary e-mini futures trading methodology.

For more about the system performance, check out this page dedicated to this issue that I just updated.

Yet another 60-pointer in Dow e-mini futures

Breaking news!

Mr. George IV, sometimes referred to as "this bad boy," delivers yet another punch. Right in the face of this old bastard, Mr. Market who remains unconscious. Let's hope he will recover or else the game is over and we traders certainly don't want this to happen.

That would be third such a knock out on the part of Mr. George IV delivered this very month. Three winners of 60 points each, the previous one just yesterday.

Here is my almost real-time reporting of this event on Twitter embedded below. If you are not following me there you are missing a bit of an action.

For more about this bad boy, please see its main page.

George IV delivers another 60 points in Dow Jones e-mini futures market

Also, 6 points in its cousin market, ES, the S&P 500 e-mini futures. That's for those who might be interested in trading this market. In fact, this simple mechanical day trading system was originally designed for this market, but proved to work well in both. It could also work in other reasonably volatile markets, though I have not tested it.

It's the second time that this system gave a signal this year (and this month) and so far it has delivered 60 points (its profit target by design) both times. And 6 points both times in ES too.

That's $1200 with only 2 contracts, either YM or ES. What's not to like about it? Particularly when you consider its price. Still only $150. Yes, I must say that I am tempted to raise it.

The following picture shows how this transpired in YM, which is my favorite e-mini futures market. The chart shown is the 5-minute chart of YM in Sierra Chart, my charting package of choice.

It was a very good day overall. It was not only the second winning day for George IV this year, but also the second day over $1000 for KING this year. KING works very well in combination with George IV, and that's one more evidence of it. Notice that the first trade was inspired by George IV and that this result (over $1000) was accomplished with no more than 3 contracts per trade.

You can see this from my today's last Twitter trading update embedded below.

That scary 13 or still yet another good day trading e-mini futures with KING

Yes, that was my 13th trading day this year, and I came close to losing. But things eventually worked out in my favor.

As they very often do. And it has nothing to do with luck. At least, I no longer think so. Just too much evidence to the contrary.

You can check out all my e-mini trading results this year via this link and you can also see the whole enchilada of similar links on this page.

Today's daily trading report is number 570 as also mentioned by me on my site. It may too be worth mentioning that I have been posting my e-mini futures trading results to Twitter for pretty much exactly 7 months.

The last Twitter update, only one today, is embedded below.

Best hardware and software for day trading e-mini futures

I just posted a new article on my site. It is about the best computer equipment and basic software for day trading e-mini futures. It was written with the beginner in mind, meaning a small retail trader.

It was inspired by a question from one of a prospective KING clients and since it was not the first question along those lines I have received recently, I though I might as well answer it in the form of an article for many more people interested in day trading e-mini futures to benefit from.

This article is here, and it's the seventy second article in the A Word of Advice section, which may also be worth checking out.

Two full weeks of e-mini futures trading results in 2014

Actually a bit more than that: 11 days, which means two full weeks and a day.

Last year I posted 23 full weeks of trading results, but I doubt I am going to beat this record in 2014. I have no such plans.

For more about the e-mini futures trading results that span over 5 years and that were accomplished with KING, my e-mini day trading methodology, check out this page and the links in it.

A trading sandwich, anyone?

That's what I call it.

When you start with a quickie and end your trading the same day with a quickie. Other variations include starting with a 10-pointer and ending with a 10-pointer. You get it, I hope.

Today I got the sandwich of the first kind. Here is the last Twitter trading update, the 7th in a row. Embedded below.

It shows two quickies, indeed. The first one took only 5 seconds, the other almost a minute, but less than a minute because otherwise it would not qualify as such.

All trades are in the Dow Jones e-mini futures market (YM). All of them have been accomplished using the KING e-mini day trading methodology. All are winners, but that's a small detail indeed, because that's not so infrequent with KING.

Systematically tracking the performance of a trading system

This trading system is George IV, a mechanical trading system for day trading S&P 500 e-mini futures (ES) and Dow Jones e-mini futures (YM).

I have mentioned this system, usually in connection with its results, a number of times on this blog, most recently several days ago when it delivered 60 points in YM and 6 points in ES.

While over the last few years, I have been offering this system as an aid for discretionary trading, it was originally meant as a mechanical trading system and as such it had two great years of performance as you can see from its results pages.

However, due to several factors, one of them being the fact that I was being very busy marketing KING, my biggest best-seller ever, I stopped following this system's performance in the strictly mechanical way.

I decided to resume tracking its mechanical performance this year, though I intend to limit this to one of its strategies (entries) only, the one which I believe is most likely to perform well in the current volatility conditions.

For more about it, check out the system's current performance updates launched recently.

Three quickies in a row and five in total

As you can see from my last trading Twitter update that I also embed below.
Three of them were in a row, and four were announced on Twitter in near real-time, that is, within a minute or so after each trade completion.

When I talk about quickies I mean trades in Dow Jones e-mini futures market, my favorite to trade, that do not take longer than a minute to reach their target of 5-10 ticks. It's usually 5 ticks, but at times it can be more.

That's yet another great day trading e-mini futures using KING, an e-mini day trading course of some renown, if I may say so. Many more such screenshots can be found on my site that now contains over 560 e-mini trading results all documented with screenshots like that.

The first e-mini trading day over $1000

This year, that is.

That was possible in part due to a bit larger size I used on a few occasions, but that was totally justified, and I think I should have been even more aggressive on an occasion or two.

And to think that I wanted to quit after a few first trades because the market was stuck in a range and I was getting whipsawed a bit. I am glad that I did not. There is a lesson hidden somewhere in here.

Here is the last trading Twitter update that I just posted with my 15th trade of the day. Overall, I posted 10 updates with my e-mini trading results to Twitter today. And quite a few additional comments that did not contain any screenshots with trading results.

The results are due to KING, an e-mini day trading course that has been around for a while and has proven to produce great results for those who have mastered its methodology.

E-mini trading highlights of 2013

I was pretty active on this blog this past year. And also on my site that this blog is an extension of.

Let's look at some things worth recalling that took place in 2013 that relate to this blog dedicated primarily to day trading e-mini futures, my e-mini futures website, and my vendor/trading business.

1. I made exactly 150 posts here in 2013. That's a nice, pretty round number. That means that I posted here more than 10 times a month on average. Pretty good rate, don't you think so? I don't think I will be able to keep this rate in 2014, but you can count on 5-10 posts a month on average, for sure. Or so I hope. That's still pretty good.

2. I posted a bit over 150 daily e-mini futures trading reports on my site with my trading results accomplished using KING, an excellent e-mini trading course based on a day trading methodology that keeps deliver good results day in day out. Some trading results never made it there, but were posted to this blog or to my Twitter feed.

3. Speaking of Twitter, in late May 2013, I started posting there my trading updates, in near real-time, that is, shortly after a trade completion. I have been doing it since then, you can see some updates there even this year (see also below). Not too many traders/vendors believe in using Twitter for this purpose, and I really don't know why. Or maybe I do, but will not say it out loud. I have reached 151 Twitter followers in 2013. Lots of 150's in 2103!

4. I reactivated George IV, a very good mechanical e-mini futures day trading system for YM and ES, two popular e-mini futures markets. It turns out it was the right decision and I plan to continue reporting on its performance this year too, but in a more systematic manner than last one. I started doing it already on this year's first trading day when this system delivered 60 points in YM (or 6 points in ES) and did so with aplomb. And its price is, perhaps not surprisingly at all, just $150 (that's yet another 150). That's only half of the profit you make if it hits its standard target of 60 points with one contract only.

5. Last but not the least, this blog has become quite popular with Google and other search engines ranking pretty high for keywords relevant to this blog nature. For instance, it was for a while number one on Google for "emini futures blog."

This year, I would like to focus on the trading forum for my KING students that I would like to open to those who bought George IV later on as well and then to many others at some later point. I will keep you posted about it here, so please stay tuned and keep checking this blog from time to time if you are interested in this and similar developments in my trading and vendor business.

All the best in 2014!

This e-mini day trading system's first day at work

This year, that is. AD 2014.

On the very first trading day in 2014, George IV, an e-mini futures day trading system, that has been around for quite a while and that I mention here from time to time, has delivered another 60 points in YM.

Since the picture is worth a thousands words, or so they say, I thought I would use one to show you how this took place. You can click on it if you want a bigger resolution.

Yep, that's a very handsome profit (300 bucks per YM contract) for a system that costs only $150 and now for the same price you can get it along with a bunch of other e-mini futures trading systems, but for a limited time only. See this link to the page about a collection of e-mini day trading systems that I am practically giving away.

Incidentally, on the last trading day of 2013, George IV came very close to giving a long signal. Only one condition was not fully met. It was met in spirit, though, but not in flesh, so to speak, meaning, the numerical value of a certain parameter was too small to trigger the signal and that had to do with the fact that the daily range of the previous daily trading session was very small, only about 30 points.

But had you chosen a discretionary approach, you would have ended up with about 40 points of profit in YM, the Dow Jones e-mini futures market, the same market this system delivered 60 points in today.

I  will keep posting about this system this year, and its price will go up if the system continues to perform as well as it did last year.
