The trading group show
I am confident that staying the course WILL turn my trading around, and I will be profitable for the first time! I can attest that they live up to what they say in the site introduction and accompanying info.
I am semi-retired, I have been self employed most of my working life, saved up a retirement account from which I need to derive an income its a business. For a portion of my account I wish to day trade. I wanted to get to the core of the issue, what is important, what is not, how do you put it together. I believe I have found many of those answers here.
Everybody is different, everybody needs to find their own style. I think here you can find some solid building blocks. Being a part of a small community of serious traders through the member forum has significantly reduced my learning curve.
The daily live chat room is great for info exchange and observing how other people see the action. DTG tells it like it is and shows that anyone with enough time and effort can achieve the same results as the professionals. What I like about DTG is they are not teaching — they facilitate learning. What I learned from DTG is to make a very simple approach to trading methods, hard work, consistency in decision-making process.
DTG is providing the greatest trading service for the trading community in the world. They are honest about sharing their methods and are open. I got hammered and run over when I first started here but just kept implementing the concepts that I kept picking up. It all starts coming together after you hang here awhile and learn on a daily basis.
I was a technical trader who left all that crap behind. Having been a member of the CBOT for ten years as well as an off the floor trader I approach any trading service or community with a great degree of hesitation. I signed up for the Market Delta seminars and found them very useful, so I decided to sign up for the service. It only took a few days before I realized what DTG was really about. Sure they provide support and resistance levels, but in my opinion the real value comes from the discussions on money management.
All questions are answered in a straightforward manner, and trade examples as well as different money management strategies are discussed in great detail. I have personally found the member forums an invaluable component of the DTG service. It is here that I can communicate with other traders as well as the DTG founders. For more information, click here. Prior to subscribing, I did not have an edge in which I believed enough to stick to, and also no-one to bounce thoughts off of.
There were 18 trading days with 4 losing days. The two big losing days I lost my mind and traded like an idiot. That is where my future in trading lies, for sure. I now see that these vendors were offering — at best — a painted on door on a brick wall — no amount of pounding would ever open the door. This at least allows for the possibility, not promise, but possibility of profitable trading. And vendors constantly have to offer courses, upsells, additional services, software, etc to continue to make money.
Their forum has the feel of an elite dojo, where a small group are totally committed to the same outcome and willing and able to help each other as well. And, corny as it sounds, I feel lucky to be a member. If you do decide to go ahead, try it for one month, but make sure you are willing to put in the work of reading the past message boards, because that is where the gold is buried in open sight — there is no course or tutorial — just real time commentary by guys that are walking the path we all — I assume — want to walk.
You will learn what real traders know — and, dare I say, even more importantly, stop the never ending search for some phantom bit of information that truly does not exist. This information, if absorbed and practiced, can take away the stress and agony over every trade and instead lean into the support provided the laws of probability.
Crude and imperfect analogy — be the house instead of the sucker — and reserve your trading to times when you are likely — likely, not guaranteed — to win and trust the math. When this informs your trading, it truly changes your perspective, shifting your focus onto what you can control, and possibility, your results. I am learning a ton about how professional traders look at the market. They tell it like it is…. Their focus is ES and Treasuries, for both scalping and longer intraday swing trades.
