Futures Trading Prop Master Course

There are a huge number of strategies and approaches to trading futures in commodity markets. Every few years there are some new "trendy" trading strategies comes up. You probably remember trading strategies for Ichimoku Clouds, Woodies CCI, trading strategies based on reading tapes, trading strategies based on volumes, etc. Many traders, especially beginners, blindly believe that if you load the chart screen with a bunch of indicators, subscribe to some special trading platform that "gives you an edge" the results of their trading will immediately change for the better.

We do not deny that a good trading terminal or knowledge of several trading strategies will never hinder you, but your real trading results will not change. Why do you ask? Because the vast majority of traders cannot manage risk. In other words, you do not know when it is better to take the risk of entering a position and what to get for this risk. If you think that you enter a position with a fixed stop and you will control the risk, you will only be half right.

The question is, at what price do you enter the market? The price of the asset is the most important information that is available to the trader. Professional traders enter a position not according to indicators or signals - but at a given price, where their chances that the position will be successful largely exceed the chances of most traders.

We created this trading course based on our proprietary trading systems of market analyses. We combined all bells and whistles of technical analyses in condense, easy to understand trading systems that are easy to learn and apply to real-time trading. In this master course, we will teach you several trading strategies that you can use depending on your individual risk tolerance and objectives.


Here's what you will learn:

  • A proprietary market analyses system used to determine market direction.
  • A proprietary trading system designed for Gold and Crude Oil markets.
  • A trading system designed specifically for grain markets.
  • A scalping strategy designed for Mini Dow Jones futures.
  • An intraday trading strategy designed for E-mini S&P 500

Once you learn this five simple, yet effective trading strategies, you will have a much better understanding of chaotic price movement of derivatives and will have enough knowledge to design your own trading systems, for any financial markets. Let's take a close look at each strategy that we cover in this trading course.


1. A proprietary market analyses system used to determine market direction.

This system is based on market analyses of daily and weekly charts to generate BUY and SELL signals with a high degree of certainty. We are using 5 indicators that work in tandem to point out the probability of market direction the following day. Entry signals generated when 5 or at least 4 out of 5 signals point to the same market direction. Signals generated at the end of a trading session. Once you have BUY or SELL signal, you would also know at what price level this signal will be canceled. Based on that information, you can calculate the maximum risk for that signal. If that risk is higher than your maximum allowed risk per trade, you would have several other options to consider.

1. Calculate the entry level in the direction of the signal, where your risk will be acceptable. For example, if the initial risk is $500.00 but your acceptable risk is only $200.00, you can enter a position in the direction of the signal when market retraces to that level. It could be the next day or several days later, as long as that system shows that market direction is intact.

2. You can choose to trade Mini/Micro contracts if they are available. Let's say that you are trading Soybean Futures. One point in Soybeans is $50.00. Your initial risk is 10 points, or $500.00 but the maximum allowable risk is only $200.00. You can trade that signal using 2 Mini Soybeans Futures since 1 point in Mini Soybean Futures is $10.00, your maximum risk would be $200.00 in this example.

3. You can use Options or Options Strategies instead of Futures. Simple ATP option with Delta 0.5 (-0.5) will lower your initial risk in half. Of course, you need to have an understanding of options trading, time decay and volatility to calculate your risk and trade options. It is not as simple as simply buying CALL or PUT options, but not as complicated as quantum physics either.

4. You can use this signal to trade simple Futures Calendar Spreads. One of the rules of spreads trading states, that in normal market conditions (contango), futures contracts with earlier expiration day will change in price faster than the futures contracts with later expiration day. For example, if you have a BUY signal on Soybeans and front months is May, you can BUY July Soybeans and Sell November Soybeans. If May contract will increase in price, your July/November futures spreads will also increase in price. You will hold this spread until either STOP level is reached in May contract or if the system generates SELL CLOSE POSITION signal.

Please take a look at several markets and trading signals that our system generated in a six months period.


2. A proprietary trading system designed for Gold and Crude Oil markets.

This trading system is built primarily on the analysis of the price of the asset. If you think about technical analysis for a minute, you will understand that there are only 4 numbers of a trading session are taken as a basis - market opening, market closing, the highest price of the trading session, and the lowest price of the trading session. All technical indicators are based on the analysis and comparison of these key numbers. Any trading system shows what happened in the past and based on the rule that market behavior is repeated, shows signals of assumptions about what will happen in the future.

In our course of study, we will consider the behavior of the market from the point of view of our proprietary trading system, which consists of several technical indicators that allow us to make an assumption about the direction of movement of the market as a whole. In other words, we will teach you with a high probability to determine the direction of the market the next day. We not only use technical indicators for this, but we also use an analysis of the price movement of an asset that often forms patterns to determine the behavior of price movement the following day. For example, when forming the pattern of 90/10, we know that the likely price movement on the next day will be a continuation in the direction of the main trend the first hour of the new session and a further decrease and retracement. When forming the 80/20 pattern - the next day there will probably be a significant decrease in the daily range, while forming the 2 DAY Rate of Change - we will look for an opportunity to enter a position against the trend, when there is an inside trading day, we will be looking for a significant increase in daily range after a break out. In our course, we will show you about 10-12 main patterns that you should pay attention to.

In general, analyzing the price of an asset on a daily chart will allow you to prepare for the next day's trading. At the end of the day session and before the opening of the new trading session, you will have 60 minutes to analyze the market and determine the trading plan for the next day.

Day trading in our program is fundamentally different from all other trading strategies! We will not use any technical indicators during the day trading. Using our market analysis strategy, you can determine price levels for BUY and SELL entry. In many cases, you will have 1-2 entry levels for BUY and for SELL. You will enter your positions with LIMIT orders and always will have fixed STOP order and PROFIT target.

Here how this trading system works:

1.At the end of the trading session with analyze daily and weekly charts of the derivative and scan them for SUPPORT and RESISTANCE levels. These levels. These levels could be either static or they could change based on the daily price action. After these levels are recorded, we will draw straight lines with different weight and color on the intraday chart for the next trading sessions.
2. Before the begging of the next trading sessions, we will analyze possible retracement levels and projected price movement for the next day. We will also draw these levels on the intraday chart.

After all key levels are drawn and calculated, we will analyze intraday charts and try to determine optimal entry points for BUY and SELL. If we going LONG, we want to enter the market at the price, where out STOP LOSS will be placed behind several key Support Levels, if we going SHORT, we want to enter the market where our STOP LOSS will be behind key resistance levels. We usually generate two sets of signals for the next trading day: SELL above the Market, BUY above the Market, BUY below the Market, SELL below the Market.

The risk per trade for this strategy is always fixed: 20 tick, both for Gold and Crude Oil.

Profit for this strategy is fluid based on the daily set up and will range from 1:3 to 1:5. For example, if we close the daily sessions with the inside trading day pattern, we can expect the increase in daily range the following day and 1:5 ratio is possible, on the other hand, if have 90-10 pattern, we will know, that the market could take a breather the following day and realistically we can expect 1:3 ratio for that trading sessions.

If your profit target or stop loss is not reached, you will close your open position 2 minutes before the end of the trading session! You do not hold positions overnight since there will be different signals for a new trading session.

You will only enter the trade during the day at the prices that you have calculated for that trading session.

Depending on your risk capital, you can use this strategy for the following markets:

  • ECL - Crude Oil Futures - 1 tick=$10.00
  • MCL - E-mini Crude Oil Futures - 1 tick =$2.50
  • EGC - Comex Gold Futures - 1 tick=$10.00
  • MGC - Comex Gold Futures - 1 tick=$5.00
  • MGC - Comex Micro Futures - 1 tick=$1.00

IMPORTANT: You maximum Dollar Risk Per Trade should not exceed 2-3% of your account equity! For example, if your account size is $10,000, your maximum risk per trade will be $300.00. You can trade full contracts on Gold and Crude Oil. If your account size is between $5,000 and $9,999 - you should trade Mini Crude Oil and Mini Gold etc.

NOTE: This trading strategy could be used with Options, that will allow you to trade full contracts with less equity and still be within your risk parameters.

Take a look at how your intraday trading screen will look while using this trading system.


3. A trading system designed specifically for grain markets.

We designed this trading system specifically for traders with minimal account sizes. Since maximum allowable risk per trade should never exceed 2%-3% of your equity, it posts a significant problem for many traders when it comes to choosing the right market to trade. Many traders choose to either significantly increase risk, that puts them in a no-win situation or trade the markets where the market noise won't allow them to be in the market before they are stopped out. We solved this problem by designing a trading system with a fixed maxim risk that never exceeds $100.00 per trade.

This trading system designed for the following markets:

  • Corn - maximum risk $50.00
  • Mini Soybeans - maximum risk $30.00
  • Soybean Meal - maximum risk $50.00
  • Soybean Oil - maximum risk $30.00
  • Mini Wheat - maximum risk $30.00

The minimum risk to profit ratio is 1:2 but it could be 1:3 or even 1:5 based on the market condition.

You always enter a position in the last 20 minutes of the trading session and leave position overnight with GTC Stop and PROFIT orders on the market. The key to this trading system is a significant decrease in market volatility during the night session, that gives you the ability to be in the market for much longer with such a small initial risk. The grain behavior during the night session usually differs from the day session and largely depend on the direction of market closing the previous day. Since the initial risk is very small, it is feasible to achieve 1:2 and higher risk/reward ratio during the night session.

Please take a look at how this strategy works in real market conditions.


4. A scalping strategy designed for Mini Dow Jones futures.

This strategy designed for active trading Futures contracts on Mini Dow Jones. You will be trading 2 lots simultaneously with fixed initial risk and split profit targets. If trading 2 lots, you would have 20 ticks initial risk for each contract and you will have first profit target set at 12 ticks and second target set at 20 ticks. You will use Trailing Stop that will be activated when your first profit target is reached and it will move automatically 12 ticks close to your entry price.

Here how it will work:

Let's say you entered LIMIT order 2 ticks above the signal candle at the price 100.
Once you filled, you would have 2 STOP orders at 80 and 1 LIMIT order at 112 and another LIMIT order at 120.
If your first target is reached, one STOP order is canceled and your remaining STOP order automatically moved to 92 (12 ticks higher that initial price of 80). At this time you have realized a profit of 12 ticks ($60.00), you have an unrealized profit of $60.00 on the second position with the maximum profit of $100.00, if your second target is reached. Your maximum risk is 8 ticks ($40.00) if you get stopped out.

From that point on, every time the market moves above 112, your STOP will move tick-per-tick higher, until either you close your position at your second profit target or you will get stopped out.

The maximum risk when you initiate this position is $200.00 ( 20 ticks per position at $5.00 per tick).
Maximum profit is 12 tick on one contract plus 20 ticks on the other one - 32 ticks or $160.00

Please remember to add commissions and execution cost to the initial risk and deduct it from the maximum profit.

This trading system is based on the momentum market movement since you enter the trade above or below previous support or resistance level. If the level is broken, the momentum will carry the market at least 12 ticks to your first target, at which point you will close one position and essentially will be risk-free, since your realized profit will cover your remaining risk and market expenses.

Please take a look at how this strategy works in real time.

5. An intraday trading strategy designed for E-mini S&P 500

This strategy is designed for E-mini S&P 500 but can be used practically one every market. It is based on a simple understanding of market trend price pattern - in the bullish market you should have higher highs and higher lows price patterns, and in the bear market, you should have lower lows and lower highs pattern. We use 30 minutes candles for this strategy and trade only pattern reversals. If in a bear trend, the trend pattern is broken, we will have one candle that will be our signal candle. If the following candle confirms trend reversal we will be looking to enter a LONG position at the price that will be close to our STOP and will be within out maximum allowed risk parameters. After the position is initiated, we will follow the market by moving our STOP order, until the pattern is broken and the position is closed.

We do not use any technical indicators for this trading strategy and only use candle patterns analyses. It is a very simple yet powerful trading strategy that could be learned very quickly.
