Trading 102: Insights from a Day Trader on preparing for the trading day, mental notes and much more – Written by a current, active day-trader

The following was shared with me by a client of ours, an international trader, who has been trading with us for a few years now. I was VERY IMPRESSED with the content and the thoughts behind this so I asked his permission to share this with our readers and he agreed. The content was originally written in another language and the translation below is intended to try and preserve some of the authenticity of the writing….
Focusing for the Trading Day
1. I believe that you can earn and make a living from intraday trading on futures contracts. It is very difficult but achievable.
2. Responsibility – I am absolutely responsible for being an intraday trader in general and for my trading activities in particular. This responsibility is comprehensive, expansive (also subjects that are not directly responsible for me – they are my responsibility !!!) and can not be divided.
3. My trading plan is orderly and has a positive financial profit expectancy. I believe in her.

Good Trading

Trading Futures, Options on Futures, and retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors.  You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge, and financial resources. You may lose all or more of your initial investment. Opinions, market data, and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

We have FOMC minutes, crude oil report, building permits, housing and a few more reports coming out tomorrow. make sure you are aware of the markets you are trading, the reports that come out that affect these specific markets as well as the overall longer term shape of the market, current volatility.
Our brokers have EXPERIENCE in these markets and have seen many different events, cycles and more. Feel free to utilize this priceless asset.
Last but not least, this is earning season!
Please read below from yesterday once again….
Equity markets ( emini indices for most of us) are VERY volatile. For some traders, it is not an easy task to say the least….
I have an automated system I run on the mini NASDAQ and in one week it had both its best day ever and its worst day ever…..so be careful, trading is hard as is but can be even harder for most traders when volatility is at extremes.
Control your emotions and don’t let yourself lose control because in market conditions like this, losing control can mean losing your account……

VOLATILITY:
Markets are experiencing TREMENDOUS volatility. This is not the time to “double down” and make impulse moves and trades as it may cost you your trading account. Control your emotions and make sure you understand the risk ahead of each trade.
Bitcoin is a large portion of a growing digital asset market. Bitcoin futures (BTC) provide traders and investors with transparency, price discovery and risk management capabilities in a regulated environment. Learn what Bitcoin futures are and how you might use them to hedge price exposure to Bitcoin pricing.
