    Emini S&P 500 Trader.

  • Biography

    Working in the oil exploration industry for many years made me see many ups and downs in this business. Oil prices are a Russian roulette, each time they fall to the red zone of production cost, companies fire employees left and right, leaving a lot of people suffering. As a witness of this situation, I always looked for additional sources of income, and I found one trading the Emini S&P 500. Nowadays, after a lot of work and dedication, I managed to understand price action (the language of the markets) and money management, both important skills to have for anyone interested in trading any financial instrument. In my case, I only trade the Emini S&P 500, nothing else, all my focus is on this particular futures. This has given me the opportunity to specialize all my trading methods in recognizing this equity price action and patterns that once understood properly provide a trader of very low-risk entry opportunities. During all these years I also discovered the holy grail of trading the markets, and this is a good money management plan, without it, any trader is doomed. Having a good trading plan (profitable trading methodology + a well-defined money management plan) any person can have a good chance to make money trading the financial markets. My passion is trading the Emini S&P 500. Mastering the art of trading takes a lot of effort, it is not a get quick rich scheme, I had to invest time to put it to work in my favor, but it is not impossible. Anybody with the right attitude and willingness to do what it takes to make it work can do it.

    What you'll learn

    All in one: Risk management plan and trade log. Students will improve their risk management plan and will learn to use a trade Log with Microsoft Excel.

    This course provides advanced information related to risk management. Students after completing this lecture will have a very solid understanding of the importance of these skills which are vital for surviving as a trader of the financial markets. 

    In this course, students will download my all in one risk management plan which also includes a trade log. This is a bonus for taking this class. Students need to have Microsoft Excel installed on their computers in order to use it. Students will notice that this risk management plan is adapted for trading the Emini S&P 500 but they can make all the modifications needed for trading any other financial instrument. This risk management plan will be updated for download as soon as a new version is available.

    During this course, I will explain step by step all the components of my risk management plan for students to use it or to modify it depending on their needs. At the end of this class, students will know the meaning of each component of this risk management plan so they will be able to understand all calculations related to proper trading size based on present risk later during this class.

    The students will practice how to calculate position size. Students will learn that every trade is different and they need to properly size their trades based on present risk and available capital to ensure they stay for the long run in the trading business. Students will use the risk management available for download in this class.

    I will explain to students how to estimate possible trade outcomes using the trade calculator that is included in the spreadsheet of the risk management plan.

    Students will learn how to use the trading log that is included in the Excel file of the Risk Management Plan.

    Students will take a closer look at annual statistics, drawdowns, and capital growth tabs located in the Excel file of the Risk Management Plan. All these three topics are the cornerstone for having an overall idea of your performance with a glance.
