December and January have been exceptional months to trade, even without getting the big moves, as day traders it's hard to make 20 points in a single trade, when volatility sets in, direction can change in a dime making us really happy with 6, 8 or even 3 points on each trade, which is our minimum target, it quickly adds up. There's no need for perfection in order to make money consistently, to have an idea on how powerful this business is, one can make a good living if able to make just 2 points a day.
It's really good to see the quantity of opportunities to trade ES can offer when it decides to be generous, but it's not always the case, last year we went through long periods of tight days, challenging our patience to wait for the right setup, on some of those days we did not have a single trade during the whole trading day! They were rare but they did happen a couple of times, the good thing about following a trading system is that if we don't see a setup we do nothing but watch, if market is moving in a tight range we just wait but when we see a good setup we don't hesitate to trade it, when we jump in, we do not know in advance whether that trade will work or not, what we do know is that if we take a sequence of trades with similar setups, statistics will work in our favor giving us the confidence we need to pull the trigger every time and just let profits take care of themselves.
I really have a good time with our fellow traders in our trading room, not only because we make money consistently there, but the symbiosis generated there is great, it gives us the strength we need to be there on a daily basis to fight another day, here's an email I've just received from one of our members:
Hi Renato -
I wanted to let you know that I am starting to get the hang of the DS system. While I am still learning you have provided a lens into the market for me which frankly I did not have. The DS set-ups are clearly providing opportunity to make money in the market. My goal is that I will continue to trade this system for a very long time.
Thank you for the feedback, I'm really happy to be able to share something that is really relevant to those who want to learn a set rules that creates a steady flow of profits to those who follow them with discipline in the difficult path to success in our business.
If you still don't have your own system to trade profitably, use ours, the Diamond Setups.
This week we start our new Challenge, from Monday, January the 29th, we will try to take an account from US$ 10,000 to 20,000 once more, if we're able to do it again it will be the 14th time.
The Challenge consists of 3 different stages, we set 3 targets that we will try to reach:
Stage 1 - from US$ 10,000 to 12,000 trading 2 lots,
when we reach it we start:
Stage 2 - from US$ 12,000 to 15,000 trading 3 lots,
and last but not least:
Stage 3 - from US$ 15,000 to 20,000 trading 4 lots
When you join us, besides having the opportunity to participate in the challenge with us where I trade in real-time in our trading room, you'll also have 1 on 1 classes where I'll teach you all the nuts and bolts of our trading methodology, all the rules and the 10 Diamond Setups we use to be consistently profitable.
