Welcome to the second in my series of E-mini Day Trading Strategies.
In the previous video, I shared with you my “Rubber Band Trade,” which is essentially a reversion to the mean trade. It has a great win/loss ratio, but it’s usually a scalp trade and therefore doesn’t have a great risk/reward ratio.
In today’s video I share with you a trend trade which does have a superior risk/reward ratio, meaning that we expect to make much more money on our winners than we’re risking on the trade.
By the way, don’t forget that these strategies also work for swing trading and also with the stock market, the Forex market and commodities.
If you do trade a market other than the E-minis (I personally trade many different markets), you may want to consider only trade markets that have good volume and have professional participation.

Due to the popularity of the S&P 500 E-mini futures, I’ve decided to do a series of videos that cover day trading strategies I use when trading them.
These strategies also work for swing trading and also with the stock market, the Forex market and commodities.
The trading systems I share here are based on technical analysis (chart reading) and therefore can actually be applied to any financial market that can be traded.
Having said that, I personally only trade financial instruments that have good average daily volume and nice chart patterns (especially look to avoid markets that have a lot of “gaps” between bars).
This first video of the series demonstrates the basic structure of my “Rubber Band Trade” setup. For the full details, including the rules and the filters of the trade, sign up for my 5-Day Free Video Course (using the form in the top right section of this blog page).

This video expands on the trend trading article I wrote for Trading Pub “The Tried, True and Tested Over Time Technique for Minimizing Risk While Maximizing Reward.”
By the way, this strategy works for day trading, swing trading and investing. It also works for trading the stock markets, futures (including E-minis) and the Forex markets.
In the article I shared that while I normally use the 50 period simple moving average for the intermediate-term trend, you can also use the 200 simple moving average for day trading or swing trading the long-term trend, thus providing you an even better reward-to-risk ratio.
To every upside, there’s a downside, and the challenge with using a long-term moving average is that entries and exits aren’t always as easy to identify accurately.
This video picks up where the article left off, showing how I use some other tools along with the 200 SMA (simple moving average) for more precise entries.
