Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This is a COMPLETELY FREE Live Futures Trading Room for beginner traders. We are NOT trying to sell you anything. Emini S&P futures is what we will be trading, step-by-step…from Strategy, Setup, Execution, Risk Management, and Exit. By no means are we professional traders, but with our daily futures training and discussions hopefully we can get there together.

All the futures charts, indicators and platforms we use are completely free as well, and are available for download below, so you can join in on the trading.

We will be using SIMULATED ACCOUNTS for training purposes. We will not be using Real Money, but we are using LIVE DATA FEEDS, just as you would with a real money account. This is the best and least painful way to learn….IMO

Although this is a beginners futures trading room, we do welcome insight from more seasoned traders. We do ask that you do not judge us, try to sell us anything, and only offer insight on the strategy that we are using. Its appreciated!

Here’s the tools you need (FREE):

We use the Fibonacci Retracement Strategy as developed by Tim Racette at Eminimind. We are in no way affiliated or endorsed by Eminimind. This is a strategy I’ve been studying / using based on Tim’s excellent instruction. I encourage you to visit his YouTube Channel and watch his instructional videos. Here’s his info:

Tim has a ton of great futures videos. I would start with the one above to get you going in the right direction. The strategy we will be using in the trade room can be learned on his YouTube channel. He does have paid content on his site, and you can make your own decision on that… By NO means am I an expert on his strategy. I am learning just as you will be.
