At around 225 miles per hour your options can seem limited. Especially if you’ve just spent $6.8 million on your car and have millions of people watching you.
Yet, your best strategy may simply be to cozy up behind the car in front of you with less than a foot to spare. Sure the risks may seem unbearable, but the reward could mean the difference between the winner’s podium and going home empty-handed.
Welcome to slipstreaming. One of the best strategies known in racing -- and a perfect approach to bagging easy profits in any futures market.
Whether you believe it or not there is an institutional trader that’s willing to do all the work for you in every futures market you trade. They have the capital. They have the size. And, let’s be honest -- they have the control.
If you’re trading with anything less than $100 million, you may consider letting the big boys push the market where they want -- and just riding along.
Specifically, we’re talking about institutional momentum. If you’re able to draft behind it -- you can ride along for massive profits. If you somehow get in its way -- you could end up flattened without ever knowing what hit you.
These are the very moments when the guys at the wheel… the ones driving 90% of the market’s volume… decide to put their foot on the gas and floor it.
You just need to know when it’s coming and trade along with it.
All the price action horsepower you could ever hope for
If you’re behind the wheel of an F1 race car and decide to floor it, you can expect to experience up to 5Gs in force when trying to break or take a corner. That’s a force that’s usually five times the driver’s own bodyweight.
Who needs to know about horsepower or cubic engine size when dealing with that kind of power! Zero to 100? It can reach 100 miles per hour and decelerate back to ZERO in just four seconds.
If you’re interested in trying to understand the speed that’s driving the market, you can take a 2-second glance inside any given futures market candle. You’ll see your typical buy and sell action. And then you’ll see the real volume.
We’re talking about massive trades north of 500, or even 1,000 contracts.
These are the entries that actually get the market’s attention. The moments where price gets more than a gentle nudge. It gets an outright shove.
When this happens, a momentum zone is created.
And you can use these zones for easy entries all day long.
High-probability entries using momentum zones
On a racetrack, they call it ‘dirty’ air. That is, air that hasn’t been disturbed yet by anything, much less a high-performance race car trying to win a race. When the lead car cuts through the dirty air, it does all the work.
The zone right behind the car plowing through the dirty air? You guessed it. That’s where the faster, cleaner air is.
The same exact principle applies for every futures market on earth.
You have the ‘dirty’ zones that 99% of the retail trading public somehow insists on trading, representing the exact price levels you want to steer clear of.
That’s the highly improbable and unprofitable chop.
Instead you want to enter with the clean air. The defined momentum zones that have been laid out for you by the lead cars that know what they’re doing. Check out the below CL example.
There they are. The historical price levels where the institutions have made their buy and sell intentions known. The relationship with price? It’s uncanny. Impossible to miss or ignore.
Yet, for many traders these institutional buy and sell zones are a mystery. They are completely unknown. They search for them with oscillators and indicators only to have inconsistent results.
Why? Simple -- you can’t trade what you can’t see.
In almost every case, a price action-based indicator will only tell you what’s happening in every market -- after the fact. It has absolutely ZERO clue what’s about to happen... and it certainly doesn’t take into account the institutional volume -- or high-octane fuel -- that’s driving any market.
Because of this, there’s no humanly-possible way that they’ll surface these institutional momentum zones.
And if you don’t know where, or what, these levels are, or how they’re even created -- you don’t stand a chance.
Fortunately, there’s an easy and daringly fast way to add these zones to your chart and trade them for profits.
Slipstreaming momentum zones for easy profits
Amazingly enough, an F1 car engine doesn't run forever. In fact, they only run for about 2 hours of racing -- before pretty much blowing up. The car in your garage? We usually expect those to last for at least 20 years -- if not much longer. That’s the extent to which an F1 engine is pushed.
Not the case when slipstreaming momentum zones created by massive institutional trades. In fact, you can apply this strategy and draft the price action it creates for the rest of your trading career.
The critical element? Remove the second-guessing altogether.
That’s right. There can’t be any doubt and there can’t be any second-guessing.
The good news? There are simple, easy-to-use tools that will do this for you. They are built specifically for the dynamic nature of futures market volume and they remove the horrible, gut-wrenching doubt that creeps in with bad entries.
This will allow you to quickly move in and out of momentum zone trades -- in any time frame, in any market you like.
It’s important to note that it’s not just one trade and one tool -- you’ll need a system to trade this momentum properly. This will equip you with the multiple trading strategies you need depending on the nature of the market’s price action on any given day.
Whatever you do, don’t fall for the trap of using tools and strategies designed for stock or options momentum trades. They will end up being wrong more often than they are right. And if they are accurate, they’ll take far too long to properly unfold.
The time has come to get rid of stalling trades and sputtering profits. Slip your trading into high gear and start slipstreaming institutional momentum zones.
