Emini-Watch.com is a website dedicated to Emini trading.

The man behind the site is Barry Taylor who says he's "just a regular guy who makes a living trading Emini futures." Check out his site. I think "regular guy" comes up way short. His site is chock full of valuable trading insights and tools. Addictive, in fact.

What impresses me most about Kinetick is their customer support. Fast data; great support.

When I first signed up for Kinetick's data feed, I had a couple of questions about feature selection on their web site, so I sent off an email with my questions, and I expected to get an answer within a day or so. I barely got ten breaths in before I had my answer in my inbox. I just about flipped! Now that is fast.

The more I learn about the extensibility of NinjaTrader®, the more impressed I am with those NinjaTrader® engineers.

When I first started writing indicators for NinjaTrader®, I was impressed with the framework they set up for extending the platform. When I started writing automated strategies, I was awe-struck at how much of the work they have already done for me. You couldn't rip this trading platform out of my cold, dead hands!

emini-watch.com Emini-watch.com

If I had only one trading method recommendation to give, emini-watch.com would be it. Barry Taylor, the site's proprietor, publishes videos almost daily about his market views and trading methods, and HE SHOWS HIS ACTUAL TRADES AS THEY HAPPENED! Now, you know it's for real when he does that. And he's good. He also sells a number of very effective indicators like you won't see elsewhere. They're available for quite a few platforms, including NinjaTrader®. Highly recommended.

VSA - TradeGuider VSA - TradeGuider

I am also a fan of Volume Spread Analysis (VSA) and the work of Tom Williams and Gavin Holmes. VSA is an offshoot of Richard Wyckoff's work in the early 1900s. TradeGuider has a number of excellent training videos on their YouTube channel. Two of my favorite trading books are written by Tom Williams and Gavin Holmes of TradeGuider: Master the Markets by Tom and Trading in the Shadow of the "Smart Money" by Gavin. TradeGuider sells a full trading platform and add ons for other platforms like NinjaTrader® and TradeStation.

EminiSmartLevels.com T3 Trading

EminiSmartLevels.com (aka ConsistentOptionsIncome.com) presents an interesting twist on Market Profile that I believe has merit. (See the sidebar at the right for informaiton on Market Profile.) Basically, the twist is that "auctions" are not best discovered on fixed time frames. You should use another method to identify the beginning and end of auctions. John Richardson has a video-based course that describes his technique for identifying auctions on different timeframes. I took the course. I like it. John offers a couple of introductory free videos about Smart Levels via eminismartlevels.com. There is an interesting tool for selecting a range of bars representing an auction and then seeing the volume profile representing that auction. You can see the indicator I'm talking about at Rancho Dinero's web site. Financial Algorithms also has one called TPO and Volume Profile Chart - Range Select that looks like it will work.

RISK DISCLOSURE: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones' financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
