Zen and the Art of Order Flow Trading Bootcamp

Learn the techniques used by professional traders for scalping the E-Mini S&P 500 ES and MES futures and robust trade setups based upon the market structure around the first hour of the regular trading session.

This Bootcamp provides a comprehensive introduction to price action and key order flow trading methods based upon interpreting volume and the DOM, freeing the student from outdated technical analysis methods reliant on lagging price-based indicators.

 Module 1:

  • Welcome. Glossary; Syllabus; Student Responsibilities
  • Following a Process & Introduction to Scalping
  • Make Your Scalping a Game of Probability

Module 2:

  • Entries, Exits & Risk Management
  • Execution Tactics: Market Structure vs. Price Action
  • Scalping as Highly Paid Hourly Work

Module 3:

  • Mid point review. Why Not Just Scalp? Market Structure Increases Returns, Lowers Risk. Why Price Moves.
  • Using a Footprint Chart for Structural Trading
  • Using Profiles for your Intra-Day Trading Plan

Module 4:

  • Using the First Hour to Game the Trading Day
  • Why the Permashorts Keep Getting Stopped Out; How to Catch the ‘Falling Knives’
  • Putting It All Together Profitably
  • Twelve live online training classes (90-minutes+)
  • Attendance at selected Trading Research Group online meetings and live trading sessions during the Bootcamp period
  • Access to class recordings for three months from the course start date (or as long as the student remains a member of Trading Research Group)
  • Access to Bootcamp-specific chat channels within Trading Research Group’s online community platform
  • One month’s membership of Trading Research Group membership upon Bootcamp graduation
  • Two 30-minute private coaching sessions with your choice of course instructor that you may use within one month of completing the course
  • Basic understanding of the futures market
  • Awareness of trading platforms (no trading platform is required for this Bootcamp)
  • Familiarity with the concepts presented in the Booklist’s titles

Students are required to approach the Bootcamp with an open mind and not try to fit what they are learning into their existing trading/indicator framework. The pace of training is fast, and there is limited time to debate the value of other approaches and limited tolerance from the instructors and other students for this.

By joining this bootcamp, the student understands and agrees that we are presenting a statistically driven stand alone approach to trading equity index futures and that they will leave prior learned concepts (trends, pivots, MACD cross, RSI, Bollinger Bands, support/resistance, etc.) at the door in order to accelerate their ability to absorb the material being presented.

It is our teaching experience that the best way to learn this trading technique is to look at it “through the eyes of a child” – as a Tabula Rasa, blank slate – since it may contradict concepts you may believe to be important, but that in this approach are a dangerous distraction.

Students are required to be familiar with the concepts of the following books:

– Mind Over Markets: James F. Dalton

– Thinking in Bets: Annie Duke

– Blink: Malcolm Gladwell
