Real Time Trading Seminar
"In philosophy the wise learn from Confucius,
In trading the wise learn from Carl Futia"
malep, seminar member
My real time trading seminar is published as a private WordPress blog: CarlFutiaRealTime.
I specialize in trading the e-mini, S&P 500 futures on the Globex, an electronic futures exchange. On CarlFutiaRealTime I will be making frequent e-mini trades. I will post these trades on the blog and on my private Twitter account, @carlrealtime, within a minute or so of making them.
If you have been following my other blogs you should know that I make many more trades than I have posted to those blogs. In contrast, on CarlFutiaRealTime you will see almost virtually all of my trades.
Here is where the seminar feature comes in. After making the trade I will explain just what I saw in the market which caused me to pull the trigger. I will do my best to explain my thinking by pointing out what I see on my charts. These will be cues that you can see in your own price charts. I'll also explain how these cues relate to my basic trading principles. I will be teaching you by using as real time examples my own trades.
Remember that all markets operate on the same principles, so what I say about the e-minis you can transfer and apply to any market and any time frame of interest to you.
I think trading is a process. It requires being involved with the market on a day by day basis, even when you don't have a position. It requires monitoring the market and interpreting its activity daily by using a small number of basic principles.
By following my blog each day you will learn how to monitor the market and feel its pulse. You will learn the trading principles that will help you do this. It will be like sitting next to me in my office while I explain to you why I make the trades I do. You will learn first hand what I think the market is doing and why I think the market is about to move in one direction or another.
Plus, on CarlFutiaRealTime I shall try to answer the questions you have about my trades and market views which you can submit as comments to my posts.
