For active futures traders, many traders primarily trade the E-mini products on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME).
Trading the E-mini futures products has a number of benefits:
- Simplicity: Trading the e-mini products provides a very simple way get long or short exposure to the market, particularly the stock indices like the S&P 500 (ES), NASDAQ (NQ), Dow (YM), and Russell 2000 (RTY).
- Additionally, you can simplify your trading process, focusing on just a few e-mini products rather than ever changing watch lists.
- Low trading costs & capital requirements: Most futures brokers have very low trading costs, and margin requirements for the amount of market exposure that you can get
- Tax Advantages: Futures 60/40 tax treatment means that your gains from trading E-minis will receive favorable tax treatment vs gains from stock trades
What is a Trading System?
A trading system is a rules-based way to approach to the markets. A trading system is the foundation for your trading decision making. A winning trading system is one that gives you an edge & will help you to stay on the right side of the market.
Trading systems should encompass:
- Trade identification – Where is there a Buy/Sell trading opportunity?
- Open position management – How do you stay in your winning trades?
- Risk management – Where to get out to cut losses short or take profit?
Since E-mini trading involves leverage, which magnifies both the gains and the losses, risk management is the most important factor for success. Opportunities become more plentiful for intraday traders when volatility increases, but it also makes it riskier. Timing entries for low risk, and using stops with discipline are the key factors for a successful E-mini trading system.
Identifying and Capitalizing on Opportunity
A key function of any E-mini trading system is to clearly define market entry and exit. This involves not only spotting opportunities but also recognizing when to take profits or cut losses. If the rules form an effective trading system, you should be able to get an idea of how a system would perform using historical price action.

Managing a live trade
By far, the most challenging aspect of futures trading is open position management. When the price action is moving fast & gains and losses are ticking up and down, it is quite easy to get bewildered.
Many times, traders will end up cutting off winners and letting losers run. A good E-mini trading system can help stop this from happening.
Significant support/resistance level
- A good entry is one that starts working for you with minimal heat to start.
- Staying in a position is easier when you know that key levels are protecting your trade. Prices will bounce of strong levels, allowing you to get the most out of your entries
- Knowing the true support/resistance levels that are significant to the market helps you to get good entries & helps you to stay with your winners

Beware of programs designed to trade only one particular market within a particular time interval - for instance, a system that only trades the E-mini S&P 2-minute chart. Reason: there is a very high likelihood that the program is curve-fitting the historical data. Algorithms based on curve fitting is worthless. Why? Financial markets are dynamic and constantly changing. Only algorithms based on timeless and universal market principles work in today's markets– and in all markets, all the time.

There are trading software companies that sell their software on a module-by module basis. For example, if you trade stocks and a few different commodities, you will need to pay a fee for stocks and for each commodity. That could quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars. However, with AbleTrend you only need to buy one system to cover all your trading needs. There is no need to shell out big bucks for a different system for each and every market you trade. AbleTrend knows no bounds; it goes wherever the profit can be found. With today’s global economy and great volatility opportunities abound.
11. Free one-on-one consultation with phone
In today’s fast changing global market environment, having a million dollars in your account does not necessarily mean security. Rather, true security comes from possessing a winning system and skills to manage your assets – profitably and prudently – especially in volatile markets like we are seeing.
To have a private consultant for building a life-time skill in managing your own financial assets could be expensive – very expensive. That is why our value-added one-on-one consultation service makes owning AbleTrend software a cannot-miss opportunity.
