How to make a living trading futures?

Can I make three hundred dollars a day or more? Day trading?

I am going to answer your question about a tree. OK, so I get this question asked quite often, and usually it’s from relatively new students that are taking either my beginner Bootcamp course for day trading or also my futures course, which is where I teach you how to do your trade setups and teach you the whole, I guess, of how to day-trade with a strategy with trades.

So that question when it’s asked, it’s. I wonder what the intention is with day trading. So this is how I compare day trading emini futures to piano lessons. All right.

Day trading is very similar in that respect because, to me, trading is very artistic. The things that we read, the way the market moves, it’s like notes on your music sheets. Right. So when you decide you want to play the piano, you sit down and you learn the notes. Right.

Because if you don’t know how to read the notes. How can you play music? Right.

Therefore, if you don’t know how to read the market, how can you understand what the market is doing.

So the next step from piano with the notes is scales. You put your notes into scales and then it comes together. Right.

So it starts to make a sentence for you. The same with the market. I teach you first in the bootcamp how to read the market. It’s going up? Is it going down? Is it going sideways?

Is there reversals and then you put it together, right? You start to make sentences out of that. That takes time. Right.

It won’t happen in a week. Chances are you’ll understand the movement within a couple of weeks easily. And then you have to learn the songs. Then you learn music, right.

With piano, once you know your notes and your practice, your scales, then you sit down and you start to learn the songs. Right. So if you put it in perspective of playing the piano, usually it takes about a month to a month and a half to really put those notes into deliberate practice and apply it to music. Right. So after you’re done learning that one song.

Are you ready for Carnegie Hall?

Carnegie Hall is one of the most famous venues for pianists, right? I look at it as a comparison to a thousand dollars a day earning in day trading.

For example, if you were to sit down and learn your one song, would you consider Carnegie Hall as your next step if you want to perform live? No.

You would think it’s actually ludicrous because with one song, probably not even like the most complex song, right? It’s not a Mozart or a Rachmaninoff, it’s probably just a basic song, right? Something like a basic trade setup. So would you consider making three hundred dollars to a thousand dollars with that one little trade? No.

But if you do learn one song or if you do learn two songs, and you want to play live, why not go to your neighborhood piano bar where there are only a few people where the atmosphere is chill. Therefore, there’s no real pressure. And this is where you could practically live. It’s the same thing with trading.

When you learn one trade setup or two or even three, why not look for the profits that are going to give you that confidence to move on?

So eventually in a year or so, you can hit the Carnegie Hall level, which is 300 dollars per day, which is a thousand dollars per day. So think of it in that respect. You would never sit down at a piano and within a month think you are Carnegie Hall status.

For some reason, people do that and think that with day trading. That they can start earning 300 dollars or more in a day, trading one or two hours a day only with about a month or two. Practice.

I’m just going to leave you here with that information and you decide what you want to do. Day trading has the capability of unlimited potential, yet you need to put in the time you need to work. And you know what?

The journey is always fun. So do you ask any pianist who has made it to Carnegie Hall?

Their journey, their process, have been what gave them life. And Carnegie Hall is just an end game.

So enjoy the ride and day trading can be an amazing, amazing journey.
