Day Trading Systems and Programs

The Second Brain Day Trading System has been developed to be not only the most powerful day trading system but also to make the system extremely easy to use and understand what is happening in the markets and where the best opportunities are. But execution of trades is just a small part of the bigger system approach. Education, extensive post trade analysis, and a structured trade practice program is essential to becoming a successful Day Trader.

Whats Our Win percentage?

 I have received back from our traders is that they have an average between 75% and 85% winning trades. 

More Info....

That's a really good question and probably one of the most asked. We've been doing this exact trading system for over 11 years, you might expect we'd be pretty happy with our results. I think a better question for you to ask would be "What win percentage do day traders that have experience with your program have?" I only know the answer to this because I have asked them publicly to tell me how they're doing. The reports I have received back from our traders is an average of 75% and 85% winning trades.
Is this typical? It seems to be for those that take advantage of all of the education and tools that we provide. They also tend to be the traders that do plenty of trade analysis and practice each and every day. And there is no magic to achieving these types of numbers. Knowing what to practice and HOW to practice your trading is the key to success.

 

What Is a pullback trade?

No markets move in just one direction. On a trending market, there are regular and predictable areas that the trend will stop, pullback, and then either continue or reverse.

More Info....

This is because a lot of traders are taking profits at predefined levels of a trend. The secret is to just know what to look for to know when the pullback is about to happen. We are the best in the world at identifying pullback opportunities.

 


Is there a monthly or yearly fee for your program?

Nope! When you join us you pay one time for lifetime licenses of each indicator and service that we provide for that program. 

More Info....

The Pro Trader program is a "one payment and done" program. There is nothing more to purchase. If you choose a different program, you may add some of our products and services that may be a subscription service that you can cancel at any time. For trading indicators your license purchase includes free updates forever.

 

FAQ's About The Trading System (part 1)

Can this system be auto traded?

Our indicators can be used in Shark Indicators BloodHound and BlackBird products for automated or semi automated trading. Learn more about these products here: https://www.sharkindicators.com

What are HUD indicators?

HUD stands for "Heads Up Display" and was originally used by fighter pilots that had just the information they needed during a dogfight projected right in front of them on their windscreen. With all of our Indicators our attempt is to remove all extraneous information, and to put the information that we really need for making trade decisions right in front of us on our charts. This is the “HUD” or “Heads Up Display” approach we take with each of our indicators. This approach to developing our indicators creates much cleaner, neater charts and keeps the trader from having to look away from his or her target in order to make a good trade decision. It simplifies every trade decision so that they can be made quickly and accurately.


Can I buy individual indicators?

Of course. We have licensed more indicators than any other NinjaTrader ecosystem partner because our indicators can be used to enhance almost any trading system. They each are designed to do something very specific and when added together create an undeniable edge against the markets. But if you just need to enhance what you're already doing, great. We'll be happy to provide you with individual indicators to help you.


What charts will this work on?

Our Indicators will work on any chart type BUT if you want to trade like us you will have to use a time based chart (Specifically 1-minute chart)
From over a decade of experience we think that using any other chart besides a time-based chart not necessarily a good idea. Time based charts tell us exactly what is happening and shows us how the market is naturally moving. Time is one of the most important elements in trading and should never be removed from chart calculations.

Do I have to own NinjaTrader?

No you do not have to own the NinjaTrader trading platform to use our programs. NinjaTrader is free to use for charting and simulation trading including using the Market Replay (Playback) connection. You only need to provide a quality non filtered data source for the charts. For practicing in Playback mode, you can use the free replay data and do not require a live data feed at all.

 

Do I need a NinjaTrader brokerage account?

No you do not have to have a NinjaTrader brokerage account to trade our systme. Many traders believe that you must use the charting platform and order entry that their brokerage provides. But you can trade from your brokerage order entry while looking at NinjaTraders charts. Of course we recommend NinjaTraders brokerage because of its competitive pricing and excellent support, but if you have a broker you are happy with by all means stay with them. We will teach you how to use the NinjaTrader platform if you need help.

 

FAQ's About The Trading System (part 2)

Will this system work on any other trading platform?

Our indicators work with NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8.
We have in the past developed for many other trading platforms (MT4, Tradestation, Think or Swim) but those platforms have proven to be inadequate to run our very high performance indicators.
BUT you can chart with NinjaTrader for FREE. You will only need an unfiltered data provider.

What charts will this work on?

Our Indicators will work on any chart type BUT if you want to trade like us you will have to use a time based chart (Specifically 1-minute chart)
From over a decade of experience we think that using any other chart besides a time-based chart not necessarily a good idea. Time based charts tell us exactly what is happening and shows us how the market is naturally moving. Time is one of the most important elements in trading and should never be removed from chart calculations.


How long will it take me to become successful?

This question is a lot like asking "How Long Until I'm A Good Golfer?" when talking to the golf pro in the pro shop about golf clubs.
The answer is: It depends on YOU. How hard are you willing to work?
If you are willing to put in the work, Follow our training program, log your trades and analyze them, and do this consistently, Then it will happen relatively fast.
But if you just trade 1-2 times a week and you don't practice your trading often and you just trade when you feel like it... Then it will take quite a bit longer

What are the Targets and Stops

We trade for a 5 tick Target and a 7 Tick stop. Now before you scroll away and think "Oh that is not enough" let me explain. I want you to pull up a chart... ANY chart and find the trends. You will find that there are ALWAYS pullbacks within that trend. That is where we take our trades.
5 ticks can be very lucrative and once you have the skills you can trade multiple contracts.
Our 7 tick stop is often managed for a smaller loss (We never make our stops larger). When the conditions of the trade change then we manage our stops and often times our losing trades are actually Break-even.

DAILY TRADE ROOM

Day Trading is a lonely business sometimes. And being alone to trade sometimes can mess with your head when you're trying to focus on doing things the right way. Having a professional trader to listen to can help you confirm your trade decisions and can answer your questions immediately. Sharing your wins and losses with other traders can also be very helpful.

What Are The Trade Room Hours And Instruments

The Trade room is open from 9:00am Eastern US - 12:00pm noon Eastern US.

We trade the futures instruments (subject to change due to liquidity)

  • ES - S&P 500 Emini

  • 6E - Euro Currency Futures
  • CL - Crude Oil
  • GC - Gold

on 1 minute charts. The trade room is moderated by our head trader, Tony, and he calls the trades out live as they are setting up and gives clear calls on when he is placing a buy/sell order.

More FAQ's About The Daily Trade Room

Do you call out your trades?

Yes, every time. As our moderator see's conditions beginning to set up, he/she will alert the room of what he is looking at and what it will take for him to take a trade on the open of the next bar.

Can I just copy your trades?

This is a question asked most often by new traders, not traders experienced with executing trades. Yes, you can try. But unfortunately if you don't know what you are doing or why, you are not likely to get the same results. Trading is a skill that is honed from study and practice. If it was easy to follow someones trade calls, then everybody would be a successful trader, right?

How long have you had a Trade/Chat room?

Officially our room started January 1, 2010. Unofficially we were just a group of friends that shared our screens on Skype since 2008.



DAY TRADING EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Even the best and easiest Day Trading system in the world requires some education. Often times that education is more on the mental aspect of trading than the mechanical aspects. Not to worry, we've got you covered for both the mental AND mechanical education to develop skills to become a successful trader.

what is the fastest way for me to become a proficient day trader?

Knowing exactly what to practice, when to practice, and having the right tools for your practice sessions is the ONLY way to gain the right kind of experience in the fastest way possible.

I'm in serious need of some extra help. Do you have a mentor program?

We all come into trading with some bad habits. Most of the time, they get worse as you learn more about trading. We can help you build new good habits while ridding yourself of some old bad ones.

FAQ's About The Fast Forward Program

How long does it take?

Day Trading is a skill that is developed and honed over time. The Fast Forward program is designed to help you shorten some of the skill development time by providing a structured program and tools to practice your trading. Practice takes place using the Market Replay data in the Playback utility in NinjaTrader. This is a free utility that anybody can use whether using the free version or the paid version of NinjaTrader. If you approach trading like a professional, you will develop good practice habits that will never end. You should use what you learn in the Fast Forward program for as long as you are an active trader.

How do I learn this if I have a full time job during the day?

The Fast Forward program was designed specifically for you. Practicing your trading during live market hours is the least efficient way to become a successful trader. Although it is part of the learning process, paper or simulation trading during live market hours may only give you the opportunity to practice waiting and waiting for the next trade setup. In the Fast Forward program you will take advantage of the NinjaTrader Playback connection and our daily recordings of our trade room. You will learn to pinpoint many trade setups and practice them all in a short amount of time thus reducing your learning curve.

Can I practice when the markets are closed?

This practice can take place whenever you have the time to do it, even if it's in the middle of the night when the markets are slow or closed.

What if I need some extra help?

We're always here to help our traders. For quick questions we have email, a support desk, and online website chat. For more extensive help we have a mentoring program called the TradeRx program. See below for more about the TradeRx program.

FAQ's About The TradeRx Mentoring Program

Why would I need this program?

Because unfortunately you are human! What I mean is, we all struggle with the very things that make trading so difficult. The human elements of fear, greed, doubt, anxiety, frustration, guilt, excitement, panic, insecurity, FOMO, etc. These issues have been completely ignored by the trading education world. Sure, there are some books you can read. And the day or two after you read them you do pretty well. But the human element always creeps back in. Nothing a person has ever done in their lives, personal or professional, can prepare a person mentally or emotionally for day trading.

Who are the mentors?

You are a mentor. As well as any other trader in the program. This is a peer program where 2-3 traders form a group to support each other and help with trade analysis. You will become accountable to the other members as they will become accountable to you for the trade decisions that are made. You will critique each others trades and make suggestions on what was done right, wrong, or borderline. You and your mentors will be expected to recognize when someone's trading has gone off the rails and needs individualized help to get them back on track. Or maybe just a 2x4 to the head reminder sometimes ;-)

Why is this program different from other mentoring programs?

Most mentoring programs consist of a phone call and some advice one time a week. That's not really mentoring, that's hand holding. The TradeRx program is every day, every trade, and whenever you need help or advice. Your mentors are just a mouse click away.

If I am just paper or simulation trading, would the program be good for me?

Absolutely. In fact, the first 2 exercises in the program require that you do not trade with real money. You have a lot of work to do before you are ready to trade with real money. You have some bad habits to unlearn while you are learning some good habits. Best to remove the pressure of making money on top of it.

Is there an extra cost for the TradeRx program?

For our Pro Trader (Einstein/VIP) program participants, there is no charge. For other program participants there is a monthly subscription fee. Fee depends on which program the trader is enrolled in.

How does the program work?

NINJATRADER INDICATORS

We have licensed more AddOns than any other NinjaTrader Ecosystem Vendor!

To create our Award Winning Trading system we first needed to create individual indicators for NinjaTrader. Standard indicators were not powerful or precise enough, so we created our own. Used together as a full trading system, they're unbeatable. But because they are so powerful, traders that do not trade our system will use our indicators to enhance the trading system they're using.

can i purchase just the individual indicators licenses?

Of course. We have licensed more indicators than any other NinjaTrader ecosystem partner. Many traders use them for the fast and accurate data they need to be successful day traders.

I am a trend trader. how can your indicators help me?

Although our system is designed for quick pullback trades, its also perfect to know when to take some profits during an extended trend run. 

More Info....

It is well known fact that most people that try longer trend day trading with small or single lot trades never succeed making a profit. In fact, most lose because they are unable to manage their emotions long enough to manage the trade to the intended target. The only way to make profits on longer day trading trend trades is to trade multiple lots and then scale out of the trade at predefined levels of profit. Our system can easily be flipped to show you exactly where the pullbacks are going to happen and to scale out a portion of the trade by taking profits at the highest point before the pullback actually happens.
