If you’ve been following along, we’ve been posting on occasion our real-time results trading a small account with the Universal Market Trader and the Russell e-Mini Futures. We’re happy to report the results after a month of trading have been very consistent as you’ll see below. We’re coming in with over 70% winning trades and a healthy $5,000+ profit on actual, live trades taken in this popular market. The Universal Market Trader is designed to trade this market effectively, but it goes well beyond that — forex, futures, stocks – Day and Swing Trading — it’s all covered and effective with the “UMT” (click for full-sized results:)
In this video, TJ, one of our long-term UMT Owner’s and Trading Coaches is going to walk you through trading the Nasdaq e-Mini Futures with the Universal Market Trader. TJ points out a couple of important concepts — the first is sticking to your trading plan even if that initially means you find yourself in a losing trade – or trades. By sticking to the trading plan, he was able to have a very successful trading week. The reality is many people trading the Nasdaq e-Mini Futures this past week might have given up at the first sign of trouble. However, the best trades always seem to follow the worst – and it wasn’t long before he was hitting new equity highs. The second message is the “Power of Quitting” and sticking to our mantra which is always: “Get In, Get Out, Get Done” — the faster the better.

One question we get asked is what size accounts does a trader need to use the Universal Market Trader? Typically the minimum to trade forex is $1,000. The minimum to trade futures is $5,000. Stock depends on whether you are day trading ($25,000 minimum) or swing trading (perhaps $5,000 – $10,000 minimum) or Options Trading ($2,500 minimum) — now, those are just general suggestions. As you know, brokers will usually let you get by for less but we feel it’s important you capitalize properly. You do not want your leverage to be very high, nor do you want to risk a higher percentage per trade. That’s not how you survive as a trader. In addition, when we say $5,000 for futures, that amount will vary depending upon which futures market – for example it takes less margin to trade the Nasdaq e-Mini then it does Crude Oil or the Dax Futures. Our training covers all these topics to ensure you are trading the right places for your account size and controlling that risk.
Below you see a screenshot of a trading account we’re keeping track of and placing trades in real-time on the Russell e-Mini future. This market can be traded within the ranges discussed above and you can see how we’ve done so far this month in live trading. We’ll comeback and update this on occasion as well — clearly you can see even more important we’ve “paid” for the Universal Market Trader a couple times over — and we’re only part way through the month – click the image to see all the details:
