Is This Our Last Trading Prediction for 2019?

Here’s a follow-up recap video for a 2019 swing trade and what to expect going forward. On the news, you often hear things like, “We’re at all-time highs. The market will soon crash.” While that may be true in some cases, let’s see what actually occurred. Back on Oct. 11, 2019, we did a webinar with many attendees. There was a long move suggested by John Paul based on a recent retracement. Many traders were interested in this trade. Once the market breaks the highs, there’s often a “pop” or “test.” Once two consecutive candles occur, that can be a...

Did the Stock Market Crash in Early 2018?

Here’s our latest video for the January Effect in 2018. Markets are down, but will they recover? Watch the video to see a prediction.

Day Trading Stocks vs. Trading Futures

Trading index futures, such as the E-Mini S&P 500 (ES), offers more bang for the buck as compared to trading stocks. Traders who can successfully make two to four ES points consistently can eventually increase the amount of traded contracts. In addition, futures commission charges are generally much lower than stocks, with current round-turn costs averaging just above $4.00 plus exchange fees. Perhaps the most significant difference between stocks and futures is accessibility. Day trading stocks requires a $25,000 account minimum. E-mini trading accounts can be established for as little as $2,000. However, $5,000 is the industry standard. Also, the...
