Chartsky’s LIVE! Trading Room


Join us in the LIVE! Trading Room where we day trade some of the most volatile and profitable futures markets: Crude Oil, Gold, the E-Mini S&P (ES), the E-Mini Russell (TF), the E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) and, sometimes, the EuroFX.

YES!  We’re still here and still calling trades every morning in the LIVE! Trading Room!

I promised more videos for 2015 . . . and here’s how we started the new year:


(For more videos see below).


So . . . in case you haven’t already heard . . . this Trading Room is different than most.

It’s set up so I can call out real live, actual trades as they happen!

It’s set up so you can see the trades before they’ve been entered and as they are managed!

If you watched the videos (above) you know what I mean. If you haven’t, I urge you to watch the second that contains live trades — called in advance and managed on the screen where you can see.

Since we’re real traders around here, there’s usually not enough time to talk about the specifics of why I call each trade at the very moment they’re setting up.   I try to stay focused on the trade.   After all, making money is why we all do this!  Right?  And I always clearly call out our entry, our stop, and our profit target for each and every trade  — in advance!

Not like so many that tell you they’re already “in” after-the-fact!

Or those who give ambiguous “consider buying ES” calls that can’t be traded!

The hours the room will be open are from 8:55 a.m. (EST) — beginning with the old pit session in Crude Oil and working-in a Market Preview and S-R Levels for Stock Indexes we sometimes take right at the 9:30 a.m. Open — and trading until the Daily Profit Target of between $300.00 and $400.00 is reached, per position, at which point I usually call trading time over and enjoy the rest of the day!

Not bad for a part-time “job” is it?

And if there’s enough interest, I’ll add a European Session beginning at 3:00 a.m. (EST).

So . . . how long do we trade?

Recently, we’ve seen numerous days when we had the Daily Profit Target in less than 15-minutes — right after the 9:30 (EST) New York Open.  We’ve also had some great Add-On Days that were also done in less than 30-minutes!

But sometimes we have to stay for 2-hours or so . . . batting away choppy prices and fake-outs.

Sometimes we’ve had to come back for an Afternoon Session which can last into the 4:00 p.m. (EST) New York Close . . . and sometimes we’ve had losing days.

Regardless, it’s very important that you’re ready on time.  You don’t want to come in late only to find we’re packing up and going home with handfuls of cash!

What else do I need to know?

In addition to calling all trades in advance, we also spend time one-on-one (when necessary) to help get you over some of the basic psychological hurdles that stop most from ever becoming successful.

You can click HERE to join the mailing list –so you can get periodic updates and result videos as I post them.

So . . . how much will this cost?

Well, not the $500 a month one room charges . . . and not the $400 a month another highly-marketed room charges.

I’m offering subscriptions to our Trading Room — on a limited basis — for only $249.95 a month.  That’s just over $7.50 a day.  You probably already spend that much on your lunch! And the Daily Profit Target for a single position on a single day is more than that.

Why a limited number?  Because we can throw whatever volume we want at the S&P and T-Notes.  But too many trying to use the same price in Crude Oil or the E-Mini Russell — and especially Gold — could cause partial fills on limit orders and slippage on stops.  As soon as our fills start getting affected, the Room will be closed to new Members.

So, after the last spots are gone, I’ll put your name on a waiting list.

But our Trading Room isn’t for everyone.  If you lack patience to wait on the best, most high-percentage set-ups; or if you are down to your last $1,000.00 and need to cherry-pick trades to avoid that last loser which will take you out of the business; then you’ll probably want to go elsewhere.  Also, if you’re unrealistic about trading for a living: thinking you can make $20,000 a month from a $2,000 Account — or think a “good” trader never has losses, or never has losing days — or think you can come whenever you choose and money will just pour out of your computer — maybe we’re not a good fit.  But if you want high-percentage profitable trades, if you want steady account growth or steady monthly income and if you want a chance to learn One-On-One how to trade for a living from anywhere in the world with broadband Internet . . . we’ll be happy to have you join us!

I strongly encourage you to join the Trading Room as a first step and then pursue One-On-One training if it’s still available.  Unlike others, I don’t take just anyone who wants to pay for One-On-One training.  But I discuss that more in the FAQs.

What about free trials?

I don’t do those any more, except by special arrangement.  They were a big hassle and regardless of what we did live that day for everyone to see, most just wanted more free trail days.  If you’re into free trials you can have them every day for months at dozens of other places — and still be no closer to being profitable.  Just watch one of the many videos where I call and manage trades live and you can have what amounts to a free trial at your leisure.   We’re here for serious traders that want to make money.  Besides, instead of trials, I now give Subscribers a guarantee.

What about your guarantee?

It’s simple:  If I don’t call trades worth at least DOUBLE your subscription cost, your next month is on me!


And remember, a percentage of every subscription goes monthly to ChildFund International.

(Last Update:  1/5/2015)


For now, here’s a quick video from a few days (in December 2014) and a little detail about trading price action in the ES that can be used in any market or time-frame:


After fantastic months in April and May, we had a slow few weeks during part of June and most of July as the Stock Indexes (ES, TF, NQ and Dow) were either staying near, or making, new all-time highs. I’m sure folks in the LIVE! Trading Room got tired of hearing me preach patience, but most were patient and, as expected, once price came off those all-time highs in ES, we have consistently gotten many more, and much better, trade set-ups.

You asked for videos . . . and here they are!

We’ll start with the shortest in the series first.

A video showing trades hitting the Daily Profit Target (PLUS) in 4-minutes on August 5, 2014:

Want more? Here is the Afternoon Session from August 4th:

Here are some scalps taken during lunchtime on August 4th:

In fact, after price came off the all-time highs, we called more profitable trades the last week (July 24th-31st) than, probably, the rest of the entire month of July.

Here’s a video showing trades called right after the July 30th F.O.M.C. Announcement:

Here’s a video from the Afternoon Session on July 31st:

And here is a quick recap of the end of July showing the difference it makes when price came off the all-time highs:

Here are most of the trading days from April 2014 . . .

Starting with some videos from the beginning of April:


Here’s April 23rd — the best day all month!

And here’s another great Add-On Day on April 30th:

And here are some screen captures from most of April’s other trading days:













Here’s what we did on Non-Farm Payroll Friday — 5/3/2013:



And here are the separate market summaries:





Here’s the week of May 6-10, 2013:


May 22, 2013: We’ve had a tough few days while the S&P was making new all-time highs . . . win one, lose one; win one, lose two, win one. We waited for the ES to top and come off the highs, it did this morning and we pounced! Tomorrow should be fantastic!

2013-05-22 Chartsky Trades LIVE! Results 2a


May 23, 2013: I thought the markets would move better today but we still made over $400.00 and ended the week profitable . . . again . . . so who can complain?

September 19:
2013-09-19 CL 2a

2013-09-19 GC 2a

September 20: We gave back two (2) small losers in Crude Oil on Friday and stopped — trading on a day when we should have skipped and played golf because of the GREAT week we just had — but we also had two new Members and I wanted to get their feet wet with the way we call and manage trades.


Week of September 23-27, 2013:

2013-09-25 GC 1a

September 26:
A new Member asked about the difference between what I sometimes call “more aggressive” trades and “regular” trades. So we did a little experiment on 9/26 . . . I called only more “conservative” trades in the Trading Room. The difference was pretty remarkable.

2013-09-26 ES 2Aa2013-09-26 GC 2Aa

2013-09-26 ES 2Ba2013-09-26 GC 2Ba

There are fewer “conservative” trades but they don’t run the risk of loss that more “aggressive” trades do. You would usually get a few more signals but for newer traders there are many ways to trade the signals I call.

September 27:
We were back to “normal” on 9/27 . . .
2013-09-27 GC 2a2013-09-27 ES 2a

September 30 (Monday):
We had a few losers in Crude Oil and Gold in the morning and stopped trading until the Afternoon Session but ES was very good to us in the afternoon . . . We ended the month of September strong!

joe @ 10:17 pm #

What are your trading hours ?
Can I see the preformances for each month since inception ?
Trading rooms fees ?


January 14, 2011

Chartsky @ 11:32 am #

Hi Joe!

I open the Trading Room at 8:50 a.m. and trade until we hit the Daily Profit Target ($200-$300 per contract) or around noon . . . whichever comes first.

This week has been tougher than most and we’ve been trading into lunchtime almost every day. But usually the days are shorter.

Thanks for asking!

January 28, 2011

Chuck @ 2:26 pm #

I notice your trades are very short scalps, how does the spread or cost of trade affect result.

Chartsky @ 6:51 pm #

Hi Chuck!

There is no spread in futures like there is in Forex.

There is sometimes a gap between the bid & ask on the DOM (depth of market) but mostly in volatile times when we stay on the sidelines.

The results would be reduced by your commission cost which vary widely between Brokers.

I hope that helps!

I am base in the United Kingdom, how do I come on board?

Are you not longer doing your trading room? I noticed your stats stop in March.

cj @ 5:15 pm #

Hey Chartsky

Nice site here pal just a shame you don’t trade the euro session as i live in the Uk and would love to learn how to trade from someone who knows exactly what they are on about and will back it up with live calls real time :)
If you ever decide to do a euro session please count me in


October 10, 2011

Chartsky @ 5:53 pm #

Hey CJ!

Thanks for checking out the blog.

I trade the European Session 2-3 days a week so if you have some buddies who might be interested, we can get together then. Never a bad time to make money! LOL!

Good Luck!

October 11, 2011

cj @ 2:00 am #

Hi Chartsky

I don’t have many trading buddies as i have been trading solo so far and to be honest most of the so called buddies i have met have only been out to take money from me lol? Was just interested in you as you don’t advertise and seem pretty low key which speaks volumes :)

Victor @ 12:38 pm #

Is the room still opened?

Please email to me the free trial days for February 2012.



February 7, 2012

Chartsky @ 9:29 pm #

@Victor: Hey Victor!

We’ll have Trial Days next week: 2/28 & 2/29.

We’d be happy for you to join us!


March 3, 2012

Franco Yamada @ 7:47 pm #


I’d like to take the next free trial.
What’s the minimum cash balance in live account do you recommend to trade with you?



April 18, 2012

Chartsky @ 2:34 pm #

My signals can be traded with as little as a $5,000 Account but most find a $10,000 Account works better.


January 2, 2013

Christopher @ 11:40 pm #

Hey Chartsky

I am getting killed in the markets here. I was wondering if you are doing any free trial days in January? Id love to check the room out to see if I can handle your style….you seem to be doing excellent……I am looking for someone who can trade crude, s&p and gold consistently….How are you faring week by week in these markets? I am assuming positive… I see you have links to Forex Charts but do you trade FX?….all the best, I am looking forward to coming on board….$150 is no big deal for some profitable trade calls, I would love to pop in for a day or two first just to see if trades are being called with transparency…..

cheers from Canada

January 6, 2013

Chartsky @ 2:57 pm #

Hi Christopher!

As I explain above, we don’t do the free trial days.

I post short videos to YouTube showing each day and they’re on the main page and above comments on this page.

I don’t trade Forex but do trade currency futures. I try to “convert” Forex traders who get jerked-around by their brokers on the fluctuating spreads and filtered data. You can trade pretty much whatever volume you want through the (regulated) C.M.E.

You’re sure welcome to join us!

Best Regards,

ritas @ 7:58 pm #

do you have an actual trade data that was done in the room? live results?

Thanks have been trading for a while now and above breakeven but looking for a permanent place/room to join and stay with.

Chartsky @ 9:16 pm #

Hi Ritas!

The trades shown in the videos and the charts were from some actual trades called in the Trading Room.

Best Regards,

February 11, 2013

Greg @ 2:31 pm #

Hey Chartsky,

A couple questions: What is your average stop on your trades and do you trade multiple contracts? Is it okay to trade your methodology with 1 contract until comfortable? Some of your older screenshots show dollar amount, were those per contract? If you don’t want to show dollar amounts any longer, could you at least show tick amounts?


Chartsky @ 5:27 pm #

@Greg: Hi Greg!

We use different sized stops for different markets. We have an initial “catastrophic” stop of 20-ticks for Crude Oil but that rarely gets hit. If the trade goes against us we usually either get out at scratch or 5-10 ticks.

Profit Targets are equal to the original stop — we never risk more than we shoot for. Again, CL is either 15 or 20-ticks Profit Targets, with 15 or 20-tick initial stops. EuroFX is 10-ticks, or 5-tick scalps. Gold is 20-ticks. ES is 8-12 ticks.

And, sure, you can trade 1 contract for as long as you want! I suggest folks hit the Daily Profit Target consistently, build their accounts, and then increase size.

Best Regards,

February 13, 2013

Zach @ 1:59 pm #

Hey Chartsky. I was wondering what your room looks like. Do we see the orders placed? Or do you call them out verbally?

Chartsky @ 2:45 pm #

Hi Zach!

Both. I call my entries, stops and profit targets in advance and try to follow-up with the same typed in the chat window of GoToMeeting.

Best Regards,

Zach @ 11:07 pm #

Just to confirm, your room opens at 8:50 central? Thanks

February 14, 2013

Chartsky @ 6:46 pm #

Zach . . .

No sir. We start trading by 8:00 a.m. (EST) which is 7:00 a.m. (Central).

Best Regards,

I am in search of a good live trade room where calls are made for the CL. How do I get in the room to see your live calls. I have been disappointed so many time, but still looking for someone who knows what they are doing.

Thank you for your time,

Yes, I take up to 10 (maybe 12) and then folks have to go on a waiting list.

Joaquin @ 3:09 pm #

Hi, do you have some kind of statistics about your trades?

What is typically your stops. I prefer to be conservative so, for this I ask that.

I would like to get more info about your service, the page itself does not explain much.


Chartsky @ 6:04 pm #

Hi Joaquin!

I’ll respond to your e-mail (which I took out so you don’t get spammed by robots).

Basically I almost always use a 1:1 risk:reward ratio — usually better. We take scalps and, now, bigger trades in some markets.

Otherwise, maybe also look at the FAQs page and we’ll get your questions answered.

Best Regards,

September 27, 2013

Joaquín @ 6:49 am #

Hi, unfurtunally I did not see the email, could you please send it again? I think i would like to give it a try. I would like to start on monday, but it is 30, i do not want to pay 150 for one DAY, let me know the options here


Chartsky @ 3:37 pm #

No problem . . . e-mail has been resent.

As far as monthly subscriptions, they run from the first day you’re set-up in the Trading Room, not by the calendar. So you get a full 30-days no matter what part of the month you join us!

Best Regards,

Mark Tuan @ 3:40 pm #

Hi Chartsky,

If you could send me the information you send to Joaquin, I would appreciate it.


Best Regards,


Chartsky @ 3:56 pm #

Hi Mark!

Sure, I’ll send the last e-mail but for anyone else, here’s the answer:

I almost always use a 1:1 risk:reward, or better. We do take scalps that are less that 1:1 but they (historically) have a very high non-losing percentage (profits or BE). I trade in fairly conservative manner but some of the markets we trade (Crude Oil and Gold, for example) are inherently aggressive by nature. Not everyone trades every market. We take ES trades that someone can make a very good living from trading multiple contracts.

If you have any other question(s), please see my FAQs page.

Best Regards,

September 28, 2013

Nick @ 6:14 pm #

Hi Chartsky,
can I sign up today to join the room on Monday?

Chartsky @ 7:45 pm #

Hi Nick!

I sent you an e-mail too . . . but absolutely, you can sign-up and you’ll be ready to start with us Monday morning.

I have been researching for a few months now but haven’t made a trade yet or have my setup done yet. Not sure if you think this would be an issue or a delight that I don’t have any bad habits. I was hoping for some help on the initial setup and maybe trade with your group on a mock market, then once I am comfortable jump in the live market with you guys. Shoot me an email when you have time.
