    I think that Charlie’s great, and so honest and natural, with no hype.
    My only comment is that while watching Charie’s trading window, I find myself listening to Charlie’s commentary, but he does tend to use a technical commentary as it runs through his head, but it doesn’t explain to me how I can make similar trading decisions. I’m just listening to the thoughts of an expert as he makes his own trades. It’s like listening to a commentary on a horse race, lol!
    So I feel left out in the cold, as I can’t follow the what’s and why’s of Charlie’s thinking, even though I’m pretty well educated in forex trading, albeit with demo money, and I can often make winning runs of 14 out of 16 trades. I just don’t yet have the ‘knowledgeable confidence’ in what I’m doing sufficiently to switch over to real money.
    Hope this makes sense.
    Regards,
    Richard

      Richard, I’m pretty sure the goal of these videos isn’t to give you a method so you can “make similar trading decisions…

      That’s what their educational products are for! 🙂

        If you watch enough videos you can tell that its mostly just selling resistance and buying support (which is the basis of the vast majority of successful day trades). Most of his breakout trades don’t work that well. There is a lot of “I want the price to close inside the band” and “ill wait until it hits the 500-period 4-hour MA” (!! 500 period) … but trust me all of that is just an attempt to systematise a process so that he can successfully benchmark and backtest it. The numbers used and types of indicators don’t actually have any intrinsic profit-making ability to them lol. The key is to develop your own system. He is successful because of the trades he chooses and how he structures them – not because he has picked the correct lines as targets and stops or even because of these “amazing setups and systems”. Making a consistently profitable and robust system is something that even most of the hedge funds out there don’t really have. The alpha is all in the discretionary nature to his trades.

    Hi,

    And here’s my observation of Charlie’s videos over the past few months. I believe, just as most traders are, Charlie is much better at swing trading than he is at day trading. I’m pretty sure if he were to sum up his year’s day trades vs his swing trades, it would show a much superior record on the swing side. Basically, if he was to eliminate his day trading from his arsenal, his year end P&L would be so much higher than what it usually is.

    I have not yet met or seen with real proof any trader who is consistently profitable at the day trading game. Actually, to put in a better way, I have not met anyone who has been able to make a living from day trading alone.

    Those who do make a living, complement their day trading with either swing trading in the same markets or are trading other derivative markets like options and futures. Of course if you have a nice, large trading capital then I believe trading intra-day can work out for you but it would still be very tough.

    Just my 2 cents worth! 🙂

    Thanks

      Thanks for your input Tom. Based on what you’ve seen over the past few months of Friday’s, you’re probably right. BUT. They are only Friday’s plus that’s only a snapshot. Look back over all videos I’ve done and you would see that day trading does make money! Yes my swing trading has been good but the 10k to 100k challenge wouldn’t have been as successful without the day trades too. So my overall reply is that I like doing both as they offer great diversification. When one is in drawdown, the other style is usually profitable and vice versa.

      Charlie

      Tom, I understand you said that honeslty, but it sounded a bit naive, because every trader, even the most shabby one knows perfectly his stats, percentages, rates and so on. So, how would it be possible that Charlie after a 15+ experience in this business keeps daytrading if he really is “unprofitable on a day to day basis”? Like he was a masochist or totally ignorant of his same stats 🙂

    Just adding to Marco’s comment, if Charlie wasn’t successful at Day Trading I doubt there would be many people still attending the Live Day Trading Room. Indeed, he probably would have closed it by now! The fact that it is still going after all these years means Charlie must be doing something right.
