Traders using our system were alerted on Monday on the pullback on ES

This week on Monday in our trading room I warned traders about the possible pullback on ES:

[Nov 9, 2015 9:21:50 AM EST]RenaTraderpossible target this week: 2010-05
[Nov 9, 2015 9:22:03 AM EST]RenaTrader100 points off highs 

We had several trades on both sides on Monday and Tuesday, and then in the afternoon on Tuesday I said they might retest that 2085 area on the following day:

[Nov 10, 2015 1:09:15 PM EST]RenaTraderSWING trailing above 2085 now, they might try to run those STOPs from swing traders

And then on Wednesday I called:

[Nov 11, 2015 8:02:57 AM EST]RenaTrader...RES 2086.50-88.50

Nov 11, 2015 9:20:08 AM EST]RenaTraderthis RES is *IMPORTANT*

Those who took it and held: $$$$$

Every single day there are opportunities to make money in the markets, learn how to spot them and pull the trigger with confidence every time, *IF* wrong the max risk we take is 3.75 ES points, usually less than that.

We take all trades because we have the confidence on the statistics our setups produce, we know that 70%+ of the time we are right and grab money from the markets. 

Discipline and risk management are the keys to being successful, to learn what levels to take is the easy part.

Looking forward to Monday! Join us at:

Challenge update: Stage 3 complete, next target: US$ 30k

After 5 long weeks Stage 3 has been completed, we have reached the target of US$ 20,000.00, now we're ready to move on to the 4th Stage at US$ 30,000 trading 6 lots on ES (S&P500 e-minis) from Monday.

We have started the Challenge on September the 14th, it has taken less than 2 months to double the account size by taking just small little bites from the market, during these 7 weeks the biggest win was not bigger than 8 points on full size, if we can do it, anyone can, as long as you have an edge and a good risk management system, rules profit, a trading system is nothing more than a set of rules that if used correctly will make a trader consistently profitable.

Persistence and  patience are really important in our business, those who have been trading long enough know that the market has different phases along the year, sometimes it's more generous allowing us to make huge profits while during other times we have to be more defensive, protecting our capital more than trying to make it grow, one of our jobs is to know when to trade more often, more aggressively or just stay sidelines and watch and be patient to wait until our setups get triggered and then managing risk effectively, key to successful trading.

We deal with uncertainty on a daily basis, we don't know whether a trade will be profitable or not when we take it, our STOP LOSS order is there to prove us wrong, if it is not hit we let the trade run and take profits at our targets, discipline is always a must.

See you at the 4th Stage.

Challenge update: 2nd Stage done in less than 2 weeks

Another amazing trading week, crazy volatility!

That volatility and wider intraday ranges have made it possible for us to take as many as 22 trades on ES (S&P 500 e-minis), an average of 4+ trades a day, having 17 of them been winners, making us reach our 2nd target at US$ 15,000 by Wednesday, we finished the week close to reaching the 3rd target at US$ 20,000 already, we might reach it this coming week, less than 10 ES points left to complete.

I certainly never expected targets to have been met so soon, but when Mr. Market is willing to give us $ we take it, when it doesn't, we respect it and move slower, more defending than attacking.

So now we're heading to Stage 3 - from US$ 15,000 to US$ 20,000, trading 4 lots.

We follow the rules religiously, if we lost and went back down to US$ 12,000 then would go back in size to 3 lots, but losing streaks are something really rare to happen to those who use our system properly, we always wait for the good setups (those that have good odds of working) and never over trade, we know patience is a must if we want to be successful in our business.

If you still don't have a trading system that works consistently, join us, usually it takes one or two weeks for new traders to learn to trade using our system, it's really easy to learn and simple to use.

The signals to buy/short always come AHEAD of prices having reached entry levels, leaving no room for ambiguity.

Best of luck!

Challenge update: 1st target met at US$ 12k - On to 2nd Stage

And once again we made it to our first target, this time in just one week, this is the best result since we started with the challenges, the first week had always been one of the most difficult, not the case this week due to volatility, although we never took any trade to make more than 6 points.

Now we head on to the 2nd Stage's target at US$ 15,000, we now increase the size we trade to 3 contracts and in case we lose and go back to US$ 10,000, we would go back to the previous size of only 2 contracts so that we'd keep a strict risk control.

We are really excited to be trading a consistently profitable system, one that is easy to learn and use, after having been teaching it for nearly 5 years, I have no doubt anyone can do it, if you want to join us this week just click the link below and sign up.

Have a great trading week, all the best.

New challenge: from US$ 10k to 50k trading the ES - Starts on Monday, the 14th

The challenge started in February is finished, we have met the target from US$ 10k to 100k in just a little over than 7 months, the whole challenge has taken us 29 weeks to complete, it's interesting to note that the stage that took longest was from US$ 30k to 50k, it took 9 weeks to complete and the shortest from US$ 60k to 100k, which was done in just 4 weeks, but that was due the power of compounding profits + high volatility in the markets that allowed us to fetch bigger profits.

See break down of time elapsed to reach targets below:

1st Stage: 5 weeks (trading 2 lots)
2nd Stage: 2 weeks (trading 3 lots)
 3rd Stage: 5 weeks (trading 4 lots)
4th Stage:  4 weeks (trading 6 lots)
5th Stage: 9 weeks (trading 10 lots)
6th Stage: 2 weeks (trading 15 lots)
7th Stage: 2 weeks (trading 20 lots)

Now we have set a date to start a new challenge: September, the 14th, Monday.

This time we will try to take a US$ 10,000.00 account in real time, live in our trading room to US$ 50,000.00

See below the rules we use in the new challenge and the targets for each stage.

Every time we accomplish a new target we increase the size we trade, in case we go back in size to the previous level then we decrease the size back to previous size as well so that we do not break the risk management rules.

Stage 1 starts with: US$ 10,000 (done)
Trade size: 2 lots
Target in US$: 12,000 – In ES points: 20

Challenge update: 6th target met this week at US$ 75,000

Ready to reach our main target at US$ 100,000 in probably 7 months (we've started the challenge in February), we just reached US$ 89,000 this week in our best week of the year so far, with that crazy volatility we were able to bag almost 40 points on ES, reaching the 6th Stage of our challenge, now we are just 11 points away from our main target at US$ 100k as we start trading 20 lots on Monday, giving us the chance of making (or losing, risk management is key) US$ 1,000 per point (20 lots X US$ 50.00), so it's possible that we reach that goal this coming week.

As soon as we do, we will start it all over again with a US$ 10,000 account, trading 2 lots aiming US$ 100,000 as the main target, so, if you were not able to join us in this challenge, try the next one, I'll warn about the day we intend to start one week in advance.

All trades that we take are posted in our trading room at our website in real time, the Diamond Setups.

Wish you a great trading week! Tomorrow's the last day of August, time flies!

Best of luck!

Challenge update: Stage 5 done from US$ 10K to 50k

Finally done with Stage 5, I have reached half way on the Challenge account taking it from US$ 10,000 to US$ 50k in just 7 months, this last stage has been the longest, it has taken me 9 weeks to go from US$ 30k to 50k trading 10 lots on ES (S&P500 e-minis).

Now, we'll start the 6th Stage and our next target is at US$ 75,000 trading 15 lots, that's US$ 750.00/point, so, I will have to make at least 35 points on full size to reach that level, the time I expect it to be reached is from 2 to max 3 months.

If things go wrong and I lose 20 points or more then I'd go back to Stage 5, now, if everything goes as expected then our next target is Stage 7, the last one to reach our final milestone at US$ 100k, let's see if we can make it until the end of this year, I'd like to have it done by Thanksgiving though, we'll see, seeing is believing.
