28 May Eureka moment

An interview with our scalper

Yesterday I had a great call with one of our RTCT feature speakers, Mike Hamilton, who will talk at next week’s live event in London.
On the call I started by asking Mike what attracted him to trading and what he’ll be covering at the workshop next Wednesday:

Mike: I’ve been trading since the 1980’s; the markets offer trading opportunities every day so I never lose interest. I’m doing a  job I enjoy so that’s everyone’s goal isn’t it?

Me: What was your Eureka moment?

Mike: I started out investing in stocks using a simple value system, but when I started trading full time in 2005 I switched to day trading futures in oil, indices and GBP. I noticed how one basic tool could be used which picked off pull backs almost to the pip, or even on the pip most days. Then I was studied how the forex market measured the market open and put the two together. Eureka, I had a very high probability system.

Me: But what makes it so special?

Mike: It’s because it’s so simple, easy to apply every session (UK & US); it makes my trading in the live trading room mechanical, rules based so everyone knows what to expect. We apply the same rules every day and expect the same results.

Me: So is it just a special indicator?

Mike: No, the problem with most indicators is they are lagging – they tell you what happened yesterday, or last week, or last year – and that’s no good for someone like me who likes to be in and out the market on the same day! I want to understand what’s happening now – and where the the banks going to buy or sell today – do your indicators tell you that?

Me: Not really! but scalp trading is an established trading strategy, what’s different about your style?

Mike: This is a very different kind of scalping where we are finding confirmation levels, not wasting time on 2 minute charts. We aren’t scalping for 10 / 15 pips, we look for 25 pips.

Me: Wow! 25 pips a day, a few days a week, can be a good income most of us, is it really achievable?

Mike: If you’re willing to put the work in – anything is possible! My Scalper School traders join me before the markets open in a live online trading room to see how I plot the system on my charts. When the markets open I want to see the same price action to take a trade, otherwise I wait patiently.

Me: Can anyone learn to trade this method?

Mike: Yes, if you have the basic training then you can exploit this method. It’s so good I have had traders join us who have traded for a few years; for most it’s a ‘eureka’ moment when they see how the system works.

Me: Thanks Mike – I’ll look forward to joining you at the workshop next Wednesday in London to learn more!
