Want to be the Boss? Try Futures Trading

By |2019-09-30T09:49:00-05:00September 30th, 2019|education|

A big change can be so rewarding if done properly. Would you consider futures trading as a vehicle to success in a new career? Did you ever change your NEC or MOS while you were on active duty? How did that work out for you?  Did it advance your career or destroy it?  I have seen both scenarios. You signed up to be a hero, and you were sent to truck driving school. Now that you have your DD214 or you can see the horizon and will be ETS’ing  soon, think about this in terms of the civilian world.    You are going to transition from an Alpha Predator to a job or business that requires new skills and maybe some personal interaction skills. Now you must hunt down and conquer contracts or job interviews and not peer or near peer opponents. When you go online and start to re-con jobs that seem to fit your goals; are you inundated with spam and offers to be an overnight millionaire?  Does it seem hopeless to check out endless offers and then you go to LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and FaceBook or “where-ever” and the spam gets even worse. You have no way to investigate or verify all this crap. On-line reviews are bought and paid for. Maybe you have already been screwed by some company offering millions for only $30, $40, or $60,000.  Boy that hurts! Makes you feel like the 1st day you walked off post while you were in basic training. Oh boy, did the vultures gather for your money and your soul. Why don't you come and see what we have to offer. No charge. Nada , Free.  Yes, we will ask you for your email address when you call, but we don't spam you. Just sit in on a couple of our live trading sessions.  No Pressure and No Spam.  Let's Talk Then ; you decide. Will I be my own Boss?  Will I start my own company? Will you take the reins and drive this new money making machine with all the gusto and skills you have gained so far.  Are you sure you made the correct choices.  The military is a copy of the civilian world in many respects.  Trust your training.  And where, do you ask, do I get the proper training? Well, again; check us out . No Charge for looking, and you can even touch too! Pop the hood and listen to this beast. We don't hide behind a website. Test drive us for a couple of laps.  We have seen so many skills that former military and Law Enforcement have, that will transition to Futures Trading. These skills you have practiced and learned can give you a head start in the Financial Market.  I Know; I know. WTH is up with Military and Money?  They never mix. What the bees wax are we talking about . Military and Money? How do the two work with each other.  Well, read on and be [...]

Technical overload and burnout. The emotional side of Trading

By |2019-10-29T12:15:33-05:00September 27th, 2019|education, financial goals, Futures Trading, Risk Management|

Beginner and Intermediate Traders alike are Guilty of this. Are you spending hours and hours sweating over details and press reports and business forecasts; studying Fibonacci lines and donchain channels?  Can you ever get enough data or current info to take a trade with 100% certainty of winning?  Do you suffer from technical overload or anxiety burnout? Welcome to the dark side of trading we call emotional trading. How did you get here to the dark side?   How frustrating to put money on the line in a trade and then realize, I could have gone to Vegas and lost this same money and had a good time while throwing money down a hole.   Buy Low and Sell High Buy low and sell high; there is nothing else in commerce and futures trading if you want to profit. The way you lose money is to buy retail and sell wholesale. When the price goes up you get excited and you start buying. You are buying when the price is High. This is when you should be selling. You have gone into the trade backward.  You followed your emotions. This is why the most experienced traders know the major portion of successful trading is the emotional portion. They first have to recognize it; then accept it and work with it. Now let's look at the most common point of entry into any transaction. You buy a product at the low end and sell when the price is increasing. Buy low and sell high. When the price goes up, you sell and realize a profit. Buy low and sell High. The age-old road to success. I can hear the experience traders screaming at the screen right now.  They make a living gathering data and making rules and studying price action. But I want to tell you that 95% of futures traders are broke after the 1st year. You could do better in Vegas. Number crunching and technical analysis is important, but trading is 60% or more just an emotional exercise. Do you know your break-even ratio?  Fill vs Stop When you get the correct money management and risk ratios (easy peasy ) then you need to trust your decision and stay in the trade.  If you are a scalper, then you don't need to read any further. If you are in for the long run, look at your risk-reward, calculate your breakeven trade ratio, and take the trade when it comes to you. Don't chase the trade, and don't run your stops up and down. Keep the emotions out of the trade. If you trust your sim trades and playback exercises, why would they not line up with your live trades? You proved your #'s and you practiced your trade signals over and over, and yet.....What happens when you take that signal live?  Do you need to keep piling on more and more rules?  Or can you trust your trade rules and keep your finger off the mouse while you stare [...]

The Road To Success Thru Futures Trading

By |2019-10-24T15:06:58-05:00September 25th, 2019|earn extra money, education, financial goals, Jobs for Veterans|

Let’s Talk about the road to your money goal$   Let's talk about the road to SUCCESS. In all my years, Military and in Business; very few people want to talk about money. My stockbroker was eager to talk to me;  until the bottom fell out of the market. My banker was not too keen on talking about money (until I owed him lots of money). If you are looking at retirement and want to earn extra money or start a new $500K career; read on. I guess I learned from my parents that we don’t talk about money because we never had enough. When you go out on a farm or ranch, it ‘s considered bad manners to ask a rancher “How many head of cattle do you have?" It’s sort of like asking, “How much money do you have? “   All this talk about money. Do you think your path to success may involve obtaining some money?  Well, of course, you will need money. Money lubricates the gears of commerce and widens the path to success. But how much money? The picture above may seem like a goat path to many. I can assure you, the reason it does not look well worn or traveled, is because so many people do not recognize this path and they take another route. The path I can show you; is the road to success, and I can’t wait to show you what’s over the hill. You will be amazed and excited when you see what we do. Develop Goals and Manage your path to those Goals So, with money being such a big part of everyone’s life; why not talk more about it. There is a road to success and it is well defined, but not often traveled. Here at the S&P500 Trading Group, we teach money management and capital preservation to start you on the right path. Don't spend all you have for a school that only offers youTube videos and paper trading. This is no Bull Come join us for a couple of free passes to our live trading sessions.  You'll start to see what we are so excited about.

How happy is the soldier that found a B-2 unit with canned peaches.
