Many years ago, in March 1995, the same month
Yahoo.com was called to life, I created one of the very first websites dedicated to futures trading. The site, called Waldemar’s
List, one of the last updates of which can still be checked
out owing to the great idea of Wayback
Machine, quickly became a
very popular destination for futures aficionados and stayed on the web
for the following seven years. I finally took it down during the summer of
2002. I did not have time for updating it being too busy with many other
things in my life. It was also at that time that I started trading
Now, a few years into my futures trading career, I decided to share
some of my successful trading ideas with others.
Now, a few years into my futures trading career, I decided to share some of my successful trading ideas with others.
I have been interested in the financial markets for
some 20 years, been actively trading
them for about 15 years, at first stocks and options, and then e-mini
futures markets. I mostly trade YM
and ES, and
only very infrequently NQ. These are the three most liquid markets among
electronically traded stock index futures.
In Poland I am known as the discoverer of Nova Cygni 1975, one the brightest novae of the 20th century.
After receiving my Ph.D., I landed a job in Beverly Hills, CA, where I worked for a gaming company developing optimal strategies for various casino games. That lasted only about two years. Due to the recession of 2001-2002, I was laid off and the company soon went out of business. It was back then that I started day trading e-mini futures, which I have continued ever since, quite successfully, if I may say so. And I still live in Southern California; here is a view from my apartment doorstep.
I trade with Interactive Brokers. I don't use any special tools for it, but only commonly available trading platforms and charts. But I use only my own ideas and they may not be that common.
This is not one of those slick, flashy websites that marketers love to impress their clients with. That's because I designed it myself and I like to keep things plain. I am also not a web designer and not much of a marketer either. But then again, it appeals quite well to people who are capable of separating fluff from substance and since that's also the people who are most likely to succeed in the day trading business, I think that's a pretty good match.
Yours truly at a very promising age.
