vinylchild, you can trade ES Futures on TD (ThinkorSwim)- symbols:  /ES, /MES (micro ES). You have to apply for a Futures Account to trade them but you can still chart them without the Futures Acct

Great Trade Matt! Thanks for the early Christmas present ;-)

Nice trade, thank you Matt. Looking forward to when you bring the ES system online for members as well.

Matt, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. 

thanks Steve. ToS should be

Thanks for the insight Matt. I joined back in July and figured it would be "easy" emotionally to adhere to the SPY system. On the SPY trades back in early Aug you recall we had a draw down then as well and I could not get myself to take the CCI subsystem trade because the other trades were so underwater at the time. FEAR. This time, there was no hesitation in taking the second entries for both subsystems. It comes with a better understand of how the systems work and increased belief in there positive performance over the long term. It is a definitely a learning process.  I remember you mentioned before if you are going to trade the SPY systems don't pick and choose which entries to take. Thank you to you and Steve for all you guys do to help us. 

Agree with cozz101.

Hey Matt, the last SPY System entry (Oct 1) should say QE BTS, not Trend, under Subsystem Column. Thanks. 

Think or Swim Daily lows matched the Daily lows on Yahoo Finance for those dates on VGR

Matt, I somehow got the impression we used a hard stop-loss on the Breakout system and therefore got stopped out intraday. Can you clarify if there is any SPY system that we should set an intraday stop-loss for, or are ALL the SPY systems end of day exits? Trying to follow the rules correctly....thanks.

SPY Stopped Out - based on rules you should have had a stop-loss already set 

Yep - that was painful 

yes, but it's too unpredictable to be relied upon :-)

Thanks for the update and

Hi Matt, 

I entered this trade on Wed when it broke above Tue's high. Put a stop a few pennies below Tue's low and was stopped out later on Wed. Any assistance for future reference as to what I may have done incorrectly would be appreciated. Thanks

Thank you Matt. Very much
