Order Flow Presentation on Big Mike’s Trading Forum (now futures.io)
This was a partner presentation with Peter Davies of Jigsaw Trading and hosted by Big Mike. This is probably the most in-depth youtube video I’ve done and certainly the most viewed. I presented the fundamental core principles behind trading and reduced it in such a way that there can be no misunderstanding about what’s actually happening. If you don’t know the rules of the game, you can’t beat it. If you want to know what’s really taking place behind the scenes, what drives movement and why a solid scalping methodology is one of the best ways to capitalize on intraday movement, this is a good place to start.
Is Scalping Legit?
I discuss the various strategies which are used by the heavy hitters in the trading world and use their own words to prove that this is how they trade. This video provides insight into the trade management strategies of individuals who trade thousands of contracts. It covers accumulation/distribution, squeeze plays, reversing positions and moving the market as a result, averaging in an attempt to halt a move and turn losing trades into break-even trades, and many more topics.
Order flow basics – What is the DOM? Why is it useful?
This video covers all of the basics. It explains exactly what you are seeing on the DOM (depth of market, ladder, order book) and why you should watch it. It is a requisite for new traders who are trying to learn the fundamentals.
Presentation I did for TopStepTrader
I discuss some of the main obstacles for new traders and focus specifically on questions which I regularly receive from traders who are participating in the TopStepTrader combines and funded program.
Sharks vs Sharks: Facts and myths about institutional trading
I discuss some of the facts and myths about investment banks, funds, principal trading firms, market makers and proprietary trading firms. Most of the daily volume is created by the larger traders in the world (sharks) and they are frequently playing against each other. They are not playing against the average retail 1 lot trader.
ES trade on the Jigsaw Trading DOM
I explain some of the features of the Jigsaw Trading depth and sales platform and illustrate how I use the information on it to make trades. I show a sample of live ES trade which was, once again, predicated on price action and volume only. This video was made a couple years ago and since then, some additional helpful features have been added to the Jigsaw platform.
Understanding context and living in the now
This video is an excerpt from one of the starter videos in my webinar series. It explains how a trader needs to be focused on the context of the situation as there is not a concrete set of rules which works 100% of the time. Before entering a trade, the following question should always be asked: Who’s going to hit the next price?
Podcast interview I did with Graham at www.pricesquawk.com
Graham from www.pricesquawk.com is an order flow trader who is very familiar with my course material. He recently started his own podcast series and this is an hour long Q&A session which touches on a range of topics including my experience with prop firms, what I look for when entering and exiting and how psychology plays a huge role in the bottom line.

Graham has developed some interesting software specifically aimed at order flow traders which is designed to help improve speed as well as identify when things may be picking up or slowing down. You can check it out on his site. This is a podcast and there’s an intro with some music so don’t let that throw you. It doesn’t actually start mid-sentence.
Presentation I did with Futures.io about choosing the right market to trade.
Another presentation I did on Big Mike’s which is now futures.io. Choosing the right market.
Local Trader - One of my personal favorites. Very funny.
Just fyi, the F bomb is dropped a few times.
