Can the Russell eMini / SST Team be Stopped?

With all the excitement and anticipation of the SST Simple’s release, the veteran Russell eMini 377 tick chart and the Original SST continue to assert themselves with authority.  Amidst all the SST Simple Hoopla, its older brother the SST ‘Proper’ and its oldest live trading market, the Russell eMini have broken out in a big way yet again, to nose bleed profit levels and a Huge final week of the 2nd Quarter, HUGE month of June and a LOFTY +700 points since its first live trade in our trade room, last April, 2010. 

While we have big hopes for the SSTS, and it will play a big role in providing an entry level entrance into the SST World and its unique style of trading, our favorite SST markets continue to ring the cash register.  Here are some new and exciting numbers from one of our main ‘proxy’ markets, the Russell eMini.

  • Year to Date:  67.25% winning percentage; +206.9 points with the standard SST way; nearly +700 net points since last April 2010.  In fact, it has maintained the 67% winning percentage over 1800 trades.  That’s pretty consistent, no?  Trying to maintain anything over 60% with the Russell eMini through all the changing and extreme market conditions is not an easy thing to make happen.
  • We racked up + 69.6 points in June @ $100 per point.  That is after grabbing +32.3 points in May, +39.3 points in April, etc., etc..
  • This final week of the 2nd quarter including Friday July 1st, we racked up +36.8 points.  That’s the monthly total for May and April just this last week.  Talk about Red Hot!

Anyway, I can go on and on.  Imagine applying a simple money management strategy to the very same trades.  The last test I performed, using the UTA’s Fixed Fractional Money Mgt Strategy, showed that the very same trades of 2010, that yanked nearly +500 net points out of the market in only 8 months (April thru end of year), would have earned over $200,000 NET profit (after trade costs) by merely keeping one’s position size at 2% of the trade capital on every position (assuming one started with a well funded, $20,000 accnt).

The lesson to be learned here is that the tools exist, the style of trading exists, the training and support exist… In fact, it ALL exists for anyone to enjoy the same level of success.  Not just with the Russell eMini but with so many other markets, across multiple timeframes (forex, stocks, etfs, commodities, daytrading, swingtrading, longer term position trading, etc..).  The only missing ingredient is YOU and your commitment to REALLY learn the SST and trade it in the manner in which it was designed to be traded and in the way it is taught.  That’s it!

    Did you really mean $200K…or was it supposed to be $20K?

      Yes, 200k using the parameters described: 20k starting capital and risking 2% per position (2 positions per trade) and capping the position size at 10 contracts. Per position maximum. Also, stop limit entries; $10.5 cost per position was subtracted. Meant as an example of the powe of money mgt.
