  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.

Quick Summary
Quick Summary Post

Note: I likely obtained your email address from a registration to one of my Learn-To-Trade Webinars. So if you wish to be removed from my contact list all you need do is reply with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line.

Hello Traders,

In my basic course you first learn to to be profitable at least 4 days out of 5 trading Euro currency and Russell 2000 stock index futures then you may learn advanced trading of oil that provides hugely greater profit opportunities. Let me encourage you to attend this week's BillsRoom informal Saturday Session at noon Eastern. See access instructions below.

We had good profit opportunities this week--more in oil than the Euro and Russell. The attached Tradelog shows all available trades for the Euro Currency and Russell 2000 futures on Thursday.

MONDAY'S TRADELOG SHOWS: 22 TRADES WITH 126 RANGE TICKS = $2016 NET PROFIT OPPORTUNITIES BASED ON MY STANDARD 4-CONTRACT TRADES.

A FEW WEEKS AGO I PRESENTED MY 16th LEARNING-TO-TRADE WEBINARS ENTITLED: Making A Living Trading? A Student Profile Illustrating The ‘Path’

If you attended the Webinar and/or watched the video recording and weren't able to attend a followup Saturday session this will be a great opportunity to get more details and answers to your questions. I'll be doing lots of Market Replay trades.

ALSO: If you've not requested or received free download links to the 16 extended recordings of my Learning-To-Trade Webinars, please send me an email with "Prior Presentations" in the subject line.

KEY ELEMENTS OF WHAT I DO

1. I'M NOT A SOFTWARE SELLER. FOR 4 YEARS I’VE BEEN TEACHING A COURSE IN ‘LEARNING-TO-TRADE’ WITH NEAR 100% NET PROFITABLE DAYS.
2. I TEACH A METHODOLOGY WHERE YOU ARE TOTALLY IN CONTROL OF EACH ENTRY AND POST ENTRY TRADE MANAGEMENT DECISION. INDICATORS MAY HELP BUT *NOT CONTROL YOUR DECISIONS.
3. MY APPROACH PROVIDES HIGH ASSURANCE OF >80% REAL-MONEY PROFITABILITY IF YOU MASTER ‘LEARNING-TO-TRADE’ WITH DISCIPLINED SIMULATOR TRADING—THAT’S FREE.
4. I TEACH NON-PREDICTIVE TRADING THAT LEADS TO TRADING WITHOUT STRESS, STRONG EMOTION, AND CONCERNS ABOUT LOSSES.
5. I TEACH FOCUSING ALMOST TOTALLY ON LEARNING TO JUDGE THE RISK-OF-LOSS AND THEN MANAGING TRADES TO LIMIT LOSSES. WINNING TRADES JUST HAPPEN WITHOUT ANY ‘PLANNING’.



Not including oil we've been profitable essentially every trading day for going on 5 years, not just the ' more easy' days. Monday was the best day so far this week.

The attached Tradelog for Monday exhibits 18 available trades for 2 markets starting 2 hours before the NY open for the Euro currency futures and then adding the Russell 2000 after the NY open. The sum of all the trade ranges (not profit) of winning trades came to 126 ticks--this day almost all trades were from the Russell. This is why we trade To get the benchmark net profit opportunity based on trading my standard strategy of 4-contracts/trade you multiply the total range ticks by 16 for $2016, which accounts for losing trades and commissions. My personal trades as well those for students are a subset of these available trades, given breaks, splitting trades between 2 markets. However, knowing all the available trades, not just the ones you actually enter, is EXTREMELY important as a reference to judge your trading performance. This has been fundamental for my own trading, not just for students. Again we had opportunities for 100% profitable trading every day this week.

Since September 2009 my advanced students and I have been trading oil futures, CL. Oil trading has been outstanding trading every single day using an advanced form of my methodology. Trading results have been amazing and have consistently exceeded those derived from trading 6E and TF combined. Because trading CL requires more advanced strategies it's not part of my regular mentoring course curriculum. Some more advanced students have opted to trade oil on their own with unexpected success. Since the beginning of this year I've been conducting a separate mentoring course in oil trading for advanced students.

Until May of this year the Euro currency futures have provided exceptional trading opportunities that have compensated for the lower-than-average Russell 2000 stock index futures trades. In May this changed with the European bank crisis and the Russell has been much better trading--until August. Traders not trading these 2 uncorrelated stock index and currency futures markets are really missing out. Note that day trading currency futures is far superior to trading FOREX for the same market. (Let me be blunt, unless you trade more than 15 contracts/trade day trading Forex is 'dumb', since you can trade the same trades in the futures markets cheaper and more reliably--and on the same platform trade numerous other non-currency markets.)

To access BillsRoom for Saturday Sessions in hotComm use Relay1:BillsRoom and password 123. YOU CANNOT USE the hotComm CL program, you must use a hotComm 'LITE' (or Standard). You you may obtain a trial version from www.hotcomm.com, if you've not used this before or you can purchase an inexpensive 1-week $12 license. Alternatively, I can provide you a free 3-session license code that will work with a free download of the LITE version of hotComm, if you will just make a request by email. With hotComm LITE you enter BillsRoom by typing Relay1:BillsRoom followed by the password, 123. With the 'standard' version of hotcomm you scroll to Relay1 and select BillsRoom and then enter the password 123.

Now is a great time to learn the skills necessary to become consistently profitable. You will have the chance to ask about the various course options now available. I hope to see you in Saturday's BillsRoom session starting at noon Eastern.

Bill McDowell

I have attended a couple of his webinars as well as his saterday sessions. I like his trading philosophy, no prediction, just price dynamics, so forget Fibonacci projections, risk:reward concept which are based on prediction etc.. He is a living example we can trade from price action alone a bit a la Brooks but trying to do what he does must take quit a bit of practice and you'd need to enter into his head. He speaks too much to my taste (this is a characteristic of many vendors). But apart from that i think his basic message has some merits. You don't need to follow his training to benefit from him. A couple of sessions was enough to retrieve the quintessence of his message. After that, it's your own journey.

Truly remarkable and utterly impossible to believe in the absence of a certified audit from a reputable accounting firm.

If this is true, there should be a 15 foot statue of Bill in front of the CME building. Moreover, why isn't Bill trading millions of OPM and taking a 2/20 rake instead of dealing with retail traders for a lousy $3K fee?

Marketing is marketing and it costs nothing to exagerate a little bit to gain one more pupil ;-)

P.S. Sceptics too doubt that Noah could have caught all the animals and got them into the ark.

What you call exaggerating, I call lying. Guess I'm just old fashioned.

Given the choice between these two, I'd go with Noah. He was interested in saving the sheep; McDowell wants to fleece them.

instead of building a statue, i think it would be correct if retail traders vote with their subscriptions, and that bill has a long followong in his room. of course, there r few successfull traders with a huge gap between teacher and pupil. on days when bill takes 60 trades on cl with 90% win rate, his best pupil puts in 10 % of that.

of course he talks too much. when i started with peter bain, i was told to repeat the dvd sessions and to repeat over and over until i understand certain concepts. bill saturday webinars r four hours long. try to repeat that. his mentoring sessions are hours. how long would u repeat if u r dump to get a point

yes definitely the issue of why somebody this successful has to do any mentoring possible has philantropic underpinnings. cer4tainly i wont sit the whole day with a bunch of students for five hundred if thats what i make in two or three trades. of course individuals want to have some proof of helping and doing community work. this man trradess 16 contracts on cl and dont really need sudents, left alone saturday informercials

this is the tradelog for 20 sep. the idea is for students to capture 80% of the trades that are logged

one of my friends reported doing 94 tics on tf on this day
