And here comes the police ...

Allow me to elaborate. Through a series of tweets from my today's trading session. I start this series after trade number 12. For more, as always, feel free to check out my Twitter feed.

You can even follow me there. I certainly don't mind it, though I follow no one back simply because I don't want to single anyone out and cannot possible follow everyone. I do follow back virtually everyone who follows me in my personal account, though.

Let's start.

Yep, another good day, even though at some point I wanted to quit after the very first few trades because my stomach got upset. Well, fortunately, the market started moving really well, so I could continue trading and my stomach got a bit better too. But I certainly advise against trading with an upset stomach in tough market conditions.

As you see, I took as many trades as yesterday (see my previous post here), which also confirms what I said yesterday about being able to take that many trades with KING, at least a few times a month.

KING is an e-mini futures day trading methodology (course) for ambitious folks.

So how scary is this e-mini day trading thing?

Not scary at all.

Even trade number 13 (certainly one of those numbers that may be a problem to some people) can be handled just fine. As you can see from my recent tweet embedded below.

At least if you a KING trader. Most other traders may never even reach this number of trades a day, but a decent KING trader should be able to produce 10-15 trades a day once in a while, at least once a month, depending on volatility and if he really wants to keep scalping for so long.

But then again, as you can see from my last tweet today (the last one with a trading result update, that is), you can take even 15 trades in as little as 2 hours or even less on a good, reasonably volatile day, especially when the market has a pretty clear trend as this always helps.

And see also my other, pretty recent post, where I too demonstrated how intrepid I could be when faced with that dreadful number. Yep, I mean 13 again. Or this one, where 13 makes another appearance with a bit more drama involved.

My new Tetris record and some thoughts on trading

A while back I talked on this blog about my Tetris record that I thought I might never beat. Well, at least it looked that good to me back then. About three months ago.

But yesterday I managed to beat it. Twice. See my Twitter feed for evidence of that.

Now it stands at 147, and while this may not seem like a big improvement compared to the previous record of 143 lines, it actually is. Moreover, I know I can improve this result. It's only a matter of time, which I don't have too much these days and that conviction is in stark contrast to what I thought about my previous record only 3 months ago. Let me repeat it: it seemed unbeatable back then.

Now, what does that have to do with trading?

Quite a lot, in fact, but let me mention one thing only, which I think might be most important. It is that persistence pays off. But that's what most people sadly rather badly lack. Most of them never stick to one thing for more than a few weeks or even a few days. They either quit or move to some other fancier, shiner, opportunity that promises an easier path to "trading riches."

Well, that's wrong. That's not a way to go. If you stick to something, you will be able to do things that you thought were (virtually) impossible as I thought only a few months back about Tetris results better than my previous record.

Persistence, patience, and practice are the 3 P's that determine your success. Not only your trading success, but your success in many other endeavors as well. Playing Tetris is one way to grasp it and to model your behavior, to learn what it takes to excel at something.

It's free and can help you become a better trader. And that's just for starters.

Busy ...

That's why I am not posting here as much as I used to. The same holds true for my site. I am also trading a bit less than in January or early February.

I am simply very busy. I had to take care of certain things that were well overdue, both of personal and business nature, and I really need to launch my forum, intended primarily for my KING clients, but later to be open to everyone.

And so until the forum is launched, this pattern is unlikely to change, and when the forum is up and running, I am afraid that I will be busy with the forum, so I may post here even less.

But I do try to trade at least 2-3 days a week, even when I am very busy, and I plan on posting my e-mini trading results on my site, as I have been doing it for many years now, at least once or twice a week, and also on Twitter, something that I have been doing for about 8 months now.

The 5th total winner for George IV this year!

And it's the 5th winner in a row this year too. Out of 5 trades in total. This one was on a long side for a change.

I am talking about winners of one neat e-mini futures day trading system for Dow Jones e-minis (YM) and S&P 500 e-minis (ES). You can learn more about it here.

For more about the recent winners check out this page.

Unfortunately, my computer crashed today, so I couldn't cheer for George IV when it was working towards its victory over that miser Mr. Market. Guess what? That means that this system is so good that it does not even need my cheering!

I am definitely not superstitious ...

The tweets tell the story of my last trade today. In YM, the Dow Jones e-mini futures markets. All trades made using the KING e-mini trading methodology.

The best trading result this year ... and a sandwich

That was a sandwich, indeed.

I started with a quickie (a trade that does not last even a full minute) and I ended my trading today with another quickie. Well, at least I think I am done trading today, but I thought so a few more times today, so don't quote me on that yet.

It's not easy to stop on a day like today, but it makes sense to take a break to clear your head. That's why I am writing this brief note.

That's the 4th day over $1000 this year and the best one so far in 2014. This result (see my last Twitter update embedded below) was possible due to KING, an excellent e-mini futures day trading methodology for ambitious traders.

Actually, I got rid of that sandwich. It's kinda silly to cling to a sandwich. Any sandwich.

Many updates on my site

I mean, the site dedicated to day trading e-mini futures markets. At least, in the first place, if one totally neglects my genuinely original stock trading method. But I don't trade stocks any more, and that's pretty much reflected on my site too.

The updates include information on the George IV price hike and on my continued commitment to the e-mini trading forum that I have been planning to lunch for some time, but still have to find enough time to do so. But now it's really all about time. In the past, I was still waiting for the forum software to mature and the hosting for it to become more popular. Both of these issues are now pretty much resolved. All I need is time.

As far as the price hike is concerned, I think it was somewhat overdue. George IV is a pretty good system, even if you were to use it for discretionary trading only. But it may also deliver as a fully mechanical system, and the last four trades, all total winners, attest to it rather well.

Congratulations to those who got this system for $150! The current price of $200 is still very smart, though. I think I ought to remind those still waiting for a higher price that last time the price of this very system reached its peak at $300, so it still has some room to grow.

Let me also remind you that now buying George IV gives you access to 3 more of my e-mini futures trading systems, now mostly retired but still containing useful ideas. I am talking about the George Collection of e-mini futures trading systems.
