Great Start to the Week…

Huge Daytrade Profits Today as Markets Sell Off After Big Gap Open

May 31, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Huge Daytrade Profits today. As the market sold off, our registers were ringing, green-a-ling-ding-ding!

I’ll keep it short and sweet as we took some nice profits today in the traderoom.  Everything was one and done with Soybean Futures being the only kid on the block who didn’t come to the party.  This NQ chart will tell the story of the type of trading we saw across the board.

NQ was One and Done Today with this Big Winner


For a different look and feel, check out today’s Crude Oil trade that also hit its goals on the very first trade.


Crude Oil has come alive again, after struggling with small trades the first part of 2017.  It has broken out of its tight range.  A look at the daily chart reveals why we had such small trade setups and why we are starting the see the type of trade we’ve grown to love and rely on with CL over the longer term.


Check back tomorrow.  I’m going to post a full Live Traderoom Video Replay.  This is typically a session that is reserved for the private Owner’s Club of the CPT.  Every now and then I like to share the recording with the general trading community, for anyone curious about what we do in there.  Counter Punch Trader, along with the traderoom access is now available for FREE to all Netpicks’ Inner Circle Members.  If you want to join our exclusive Trader’s Inner Circle, send me an email to

Today’s Live Crude Oil Inventory Report trade

May 24, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Another Successful Crude Oil Inventory Report trading session. If it ain't broke don't fix it. This tradeplan keeps on winning and is my very favorite daytrade of the week.

I’ve posted a number of these lately, just to show how consistent the CPT is and how consistent WE are with sticking to a working and effective tradeplan.  This video is an excerpt from today’s live traderoom session.  Whether you’re trading CL or any other market, we approach our trading the same way, each and every time.  In other words, we stick to our proven tradeplans and let the odds (which are always stacked in our favor) do the heavy lifting.

Daytrading for Steady Income

May 9, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Daytrading for steady income is a great reason to trade but it also is a great way at forcing us to improve our own self awareness.  A trader is not the same thing as a person trying to trade.  As people, we often want things and do things that are counter productive to creating a steady income trading.

It’s important to be steadfast and strong with our goals of trading for income.   The best way to achieve that is to be able to quit our trading sessions with a positive result a majority of the time while controlling our drawdown.  That’s sounds easy, right?  At least the idea is something we can agree to.  It’s a big Dah!, actually..

Why is it so hard for most people to achieve?  In a word — overtrading!  If you embrace the idea that ‘less is more’ you will have taken the first step towards achieving ongoing equity growth with minimal drawdowns — along with other benefits that are easy to understand like, less time needed. Time is money too, right?

This simple one and done plan, daytrading the NQ tells the same story.  It has won 73.5% of all its trades (and sessions) over the past 6 months, which is as far back as we can pull data for.



Notice the Avg Net Profit per trade.  If you can make $50 net, accounting for all wins and losses, you can grow that into a substantial income while you continually grow your position size over time.  Einstein was onto something, naming the power of compounding the 8th wonder of the world.  Let’s use that!
