Trading campaign style
At TradeGuidance, we tell our subscribers to trade the intraday trend like they were running a campaign in trading. If you are profitable in you first few trades, you get to add 1 contract to your lot size and trade only in the direction of the trend. Personally, today we started our own campaign early while working in tandem with our Playbooks that we sent out to subscribers last night well before 8 pm while telling them that the trend is long. All day intraday, we asked them to trade in the direction of the trend. We tried our level best to adhere to the same rules only counter-trending once and sticking with the trend leader of them all for today, the NQ. The results below are presented. We traded only the NQ today. In our post today, we are not presenting our playbooks – instead we show you our own results. Email us at email@example.com and subscribe. Don’t ask us how – we promise to show you how. Yes, we have had skeptics on Twitter question our statement posts. And there are those who will admit that we just had them TeamView into our platform and show them our statements. Remember, this is not about us – it is about you – are you prepared to take us up on your own challenge of attaining consistency in trading? In fact, if you have a simple question about the trend for tomorrow, the next week or the next month(s) with any instrument – just ask us and we will analyze that market for you.

About the author
Murali Sarma, Vice President of Business Integrations Inc., is an internationally known commodities analyst, author, trader and business consultant who has demystified commodity trading and introduced numerous futures trading strategies and indicators to traders – professional, non-professional and the novice trader – throughout the world. Murali began his trading career in the pre-dot-com bubble in 1998, electing to seek instruments to trade which had lesser volatility and offered more predictable analysis. From about 1999 to 2002, Murali traded out of the UK and moving to the US after that and working mostly independently with individual traders while learning from some of the best analysts and traders. While not being formally certified as a commodities trader, Murali preferred to hone in on his analysis and trading skills versus adding academically to his credentials. Murali believes that is isn’t about being right or wrong on your calls, it is about making money!
Murali has helped several traders become successful over the last 10+ years of active futures trading and has a strong following of traders who like to seek out opportunities in the futures markets on a daily basis versus following the old “buy & hold” investing adage. While not being opposed to switching hats and becoming an “investor” every so often with swing trades in the equities markets, Murali prefers to trade what he can see on charts using multiple timeframes and handcrafted indicators suited for all types of markets. Murali excels in trading sideways and choppy markets with a scalping style of being in-out of intraday markets when there is no defined trend, and on most other days prefers trading to his own computed target levels during the intraday timeframe, while following the trend.
In recent months, Murali has started a Twitter based alert service for intraday futures traders who like to trade commodities and index futures, and elected to blog post his daily analysis in commodities like WTI Crude & Gold and index future instruments like YM, NQ, ES & RTY.
