A MIND MUSCLES FOR TRADERS COURSE

Trading Strategy Insights #2 

Using the same technique for 2 very profitable trades in Crude Oil and E-mini S&P 500

Trade #1: Crude Oil Futures Trade on August 29, 2019 (24 Ticks Profit)

Initial Analysis (CL Trade)

  • Step 1: I look in the Daily and Hourly chart and notice CL is in a broad range for a while
  • Step 2: I look in my intraday line chart and notice the market mood hasn't changed since the
  • beginning of the overnight session (slow market trending up)
  • Step 3: I also notice there is a consistent intraday uptrend, with higher highs and higher lows
  • Step 4: I see price retracing and finding support in the daily VWAP
  • Step 5: I enter the trade when I validate that price is moving back up

As you can see, I have enough confluence factors to confirm this is a high probability trade with good payoff.


Entry, target and stop

  • Step 6: I enter the trade at 56.20, 10 ticks above VWAP, after validating the up move is strong by looking at price action and order flow (not in this chart)
  • Step 7: I place a sell limit order as my target at 56.44, which is the last swing high
  • Step 8: I place my stop loss at 56.08, right below the VWAP

Trade Management

  • Step 9: Cumulative delta moving up confirms my open position
  • Step 10: Price crossing up the moving averages is another confirmation
  • Step 11: I decide to keep my original target at 56.44


There are different confluence factors giving me confidence to maintain my original plan and keep my target unchanged.

Trade Results

  • Step 12: A total of 25 minutes into the trade. Yes, trade location requires patience and confidence to let the trade run
  • Step 13: A gain of 24 ticks, which is a "small" target for Crude Oil, but still a good result, considering the low risk of the trade

Trade #2: E-mini S&P Futures Trade on August 29, 2019 (37 Ticks Profit)

This is a trade that is very similar to the CL trade explained in detail above. The key factor to enter the trade is also price retracing back to the daily VWAP and going back to the intraday up trend. 

Here are some highlights

  • Step 14: I look in my intraday line chart and notice the market mood hasn't changed since the beginning of the overnight session (slow market trending up)
  • Step 15: I see price retracing and finding support in the daily VWAP
  • Step 16: I enter the trade when I validate that price is moving back up with order flow behind the move
  • Step 17: I place my target right below the thicker liquidity at 2920, so I have a higher probability that my order gets filled.
  • Step 18: Not in the chart. Stick to the plan and let the trade run. Looks easy now, but I had to wait for a while for this trade to reach my target

Trade Results

  • Step 19: A total of 36 minutes into the trade. Another trade that required patience and confidence to let it run
  • Step 20: A gain of 37 ticks, not bad at all for a relatively slow day in the S&P

I'm a strong believer that confidence in our strategy is a key to success in trading. And this is one of the skills we help traders develop at the Mind Muscles Academy.

We have just started our Strategy and Performance Workshop, in which participants go through a complete strategy development process, step by step, from testing and validating a strategy to working on their trade execution, and then working on their trader's mindset.

The initial group filled really quickly, and we keep getting requests from traders to join the program. So, we are planning to open a new workshop group soon.

You can get notified when we open the next workshop by filling in the form below. I encourage you to request notification, so you have priority when the next workshop opens.

"Rogerio's strategy and performance coaching is amazing. I've tried over the years to find patterns that I could use to refine my strategies and other variables that affect my performance--my bottom line--and never did it work. I always became frustrated and gave up within a matter of days.


But Rogerio's process is totally different! What I love about it is the ability to adapt it to my particular strategy and to measure the particular variable(s) that are most relevant. It is not a one-size-fits-all. This is incredibly important to me. I find myself "seeing" more in terms of the way the market moves and the way in which my strategy is executed.


This brings me peace of mind and confidence to trade. To me, this is priceless."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Guarantee your place NOW, because once the group fills, enrollment will be closed. All group coaching sessions will be recorded and accessible for future reference.


How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to ALL workshop session recordings and bonuses for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.


What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 15 days and we will give you a full refund, no questions asked.


How will my strategy improve with this program?
You will learn how to properly identify key price levels as well as combine price action and order flow signals to increase the odds of winning trades in your favor.


Will I learn specific setups and strategies?
I will teach you everything I know about market fundamentals, price action and order flow, including all the building blocks I use to create my own trading strategies. That said, I will encourage and personally help each student to develop his / her own strategies as we move forward into the program, so everyone leaves the program felling confident to trade on their own, and not dependent on anybody else's input.


Will you share your screen and trade live during the program?
Live trading in a real account is not part of this program. There will be lots of examples with current market action, but usually from either screen recording or market replay. In addition, each participant will be invited to share his / her own trading wins and losses (in tick terms, not financial terms), so we can identify areas of improvement.


Will I need a trading journal software to participate in this program?
Yes, and the good news is that the Trading Journal is included as part of this program. I improved Rich Friesen's own trading journal and created the Mind Metrics 2.0 online trading journal. Each participant will have his / her own trading journal and share results and insights every week, so we can all learn and grow together.


What if I'm not tech savvy? Will I be able to follow the program?
Yes, sure! There are no critical technical skills required to complete the program. We use will use Google Sheets and if you don't have a trading platform that you like, I'll suggest a couple of platforms that are great for beginners. If necessary, I will personally record specific tutorials to help students on any technical issues they may have during the program.


What makes you qualified to be a trading coach?
Good question! First of all, I'm an active trader myself. I trade Futures and Forex every single day using everything I teach in this program. As qualification per se, I am a Certified Coach, I have a solid academic background in Business and Financial Markets, and I also went through extensive training as a trader, having invested tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours studying the financial markets. But the most important factor that qualifies me to be your coach is my commitment to you! I never leave any student behind. I am always available to help and support my students. If anyone is getting behind, we'll have additional online catch up sessions to make sure everyone leaves the program with at least one winning trading strategy and a solid strategy development process. My personal commitment to my students is what sets me apart from other trading instructors and coaches. That's why I limit the size of my coaching groups. Because I care for your development! :-)
