This page will describe the performance summary of our recent trades with S&P500 Emini Futures. We have consistently made 20-30 points per month trading by careful trade selection. Along with several profitable trades, there are also a few stop losses almost every month, which serve as a warning to re-assess the market direction.
We are the only website giving Emini Futures Trading Signals with a “performance guarantee” of 20 points per month. So you can make profit even if you trade with just one contract, though many traders are working with 1-5 contracts.

August 2017 was a peculiar month. We had good gains for large traders but not for small traders. And we measure our performance on General Trades, which are for everybody, including traders with just 1 contract. So we gave full refund to all. Please see this post.
The following trade data will give you an idea of a typical month.
Most traders stick to General Trades on which we have a performance guarantee.
Large traders can also take up Optional/Tactical Trades.
Performance in Jan 2017.
General Trades (for all, including Traders with 1-2 contracts)
Trade#1: -6 points (stop loss from 2254 to 2248)
Trade#2: -5 points (stop loss from 2273 to 2268)
Trade#3: +18 points (from 2248 to 2266)
Trade#4: +10 points (from 2278 to 2288)
Trade#5: +10 points (from 2258 to 2268)
Total: +27 points
Optional/Tactical Trades (for Traders with 5-10 contracts)
+32 points (main long trade from 2256 to 2288 given on 3rd Jan)
Total: +68 points
Notes: There were a few more trades of total 25-30 points, which came up when the market turned around, but its difficult to email/inform them quickly to traders because prices move fast. As long as we are able to make 20+ points per month, we are on the right track for success. Our decision to exit the futures at 2288 and 2298 really made the difference in Jan 2017, otherwise we would have hit stop loss on long trades instead of getting profits. Overall, Jan 2017 was great for us.

Please read the following notes because they are an important part of our S&P500 Emini Futures Trading Strategy.
The above trading table indicates trading with just one contract of S&P Emini futures. Trading with multiple contracts takes a different path because we will buy/sell at multiple levels. Trading with 1-2 contracts will have a different path than trading with 5 or more contracts, and so on, because we may choose to close some positions midway, and let some continue till target.
Index futures trading is very dynamic, and each decision feeds into the next. So unless we are trading with 5-10 contracts, we should not bother about intraday moves, because intraday moves are a minefield of noise and volatility, and can trick us into wrong trades. Our desire is to take only a few trades, and keep wide stops, so that market noise doesn’t hit us. For example, Feb 2014 had just one long trade, but it was one of the best earners.
Whipsaws of 10-20 points from news flow, and market technical adjustments are part of the game, and we need to use them to our advantage, rather than allowing others to eat our positions. If one is afraid to hold overnight positions, then our futures trading service is not suitable because we carry positions overnight (we carry futures till our target or stop loss is hit). In such a case, one may consider leveraged S&P500 ETF.
Buying a deeply oversold market at closing is often a reliable way to earn 10-15 points next morning. With S&P500, we have no need for fear, because its the best equity index in the world.
We are doing about 5-6 trades per month, though some months may have just 2-3 trades and some other months may have 8-10 trades. We will proceed very cautiously after a stop loss is hit because it means that market is doing something different from our analysis, so we need to correct our analysis before proceeding with new trades. If you have questions, please contact us. Thanks.
