Futures trading is speculative, involves a high degree of risk and is not suitable for every investor. You should carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you in light of your experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

“Hi Dave … I have used a number of advisory services and by far your 3x etf and es mini are by far the best I have tried so far … I recommend them without reservation. PS I am still planning on naming my next child after you.”
Vincent Wong- ES Alerts and 3x ETF member 6/25/20
I have to say I am very thankful to of picked up your E-Mini trading system. I purchased it on this past Friday ( 3 days ago) and have paid for the monthly subscription 6 times over and still in your latest call where I sold /MES at 4443.
Thanks Again ,
Barry Scott 4/12/22
Thank you David for another Great Trade. Using the /MES Contracts you can capture early profits while holding additional contracts for longer hold periods and capture some of the trend. Great Job. Use you charts a lot. Thank you Robert Tonkavich- 6/15/23


Micro Mini Trading of ES Futures- 

Suggested minimum account size is $5,000 for Micro Mini’s, preferably $10,000 plus. 

If just starting , I  suggest trading 1 Micro contract per $5,000 of equity in an account. This allows scaling in and scaling out of positions using swing trading tactics deployed in our others services (3x ETF and Stock Trading).

Sample 11/5/2021, SP 5oo at 4700  $5x 4,700 is $2,350 contract size per Micro Mini

1 Micro Mini is $5 per SP 500 point movement.   Each 1 point move in SP 500 is $5. If we have a 30 point move in our favor its $150 of gain or near 7% profit as of Nov 2021 numbers.


Micro E-Mini based accounts ($5 per 1 point move in SP 500) best for smaller sized accounts.

Sample if SP 500 is at 5000 each contract is $2,500 in value

At 1/10th the size of a classic E-mini contract, Micro E-mini futures give all traders a simple, cost-efficient way to access the liquid equity index futures markets.  Each 1 point move in the SP 500 is a $5 move in the Micro E-Mini.

Tax Favorable treatment on trades combines Short Term  and Long Term Capital gains rates for a blended rate of around 19%.  (60% taxed at Capital Gains rate and 40% at Ordinary Income rates)

Sample  Trade 2/18/20-2/19/20

“David, you are, without a doubt, one of the best if not the best Elliott Wave guys I am aware of” 8/30/17

Micro-E-Mini Contracts are $5 for each SP 500 point and debuted in May 2019 

  • You decide how many Micro contracts you want to allocate. We suggest 1 per each $5,000 of equity in an account on each trade directive.  
  • Our objective is to out-perform the SP 500 Index by a wide margin over the course of the year in either up or down cycles.
  • We average about one trade advisory per week, but are patient for the best set ups.  We also update regular daily charting and guidance even without an official trade idea.


Our Strategy: We incorporate our well known and somewhat contrarian market forecasting “Maps” using our Elliott Wave analysis along with other behavioral indicators.  We then translate those “maps”  into profitable SP 500 futures trading for our members.

Our SP 500 forecasts have been stunningly accurate since our inception in 2009 as providers of subscription services. Each morning in our Swing Trade service we update the SP 500 models with targets and short to intermediate views charted out in advance. This methodology of accurate forecasting was developed over many years incorporating a combination of Elliott Wave theory analysis, sentiment indicators, fibonacci sequencing, and other elements to come up with short to intermediate forecast models.

We then take those models or maps and look for key pivot points to alert members with guidance and or actual trade ideas on stocktwits.
