A + B = C
You found it!
We see every trade BEFORE it happens. There is PLENTY of time for analysis to ensure this is a wonderful high-probability setup.
At the very essence, we are “bounce traders”.
You see… with high certainty, we know where the price will bounce. We play the bounces.
Sometimes the bounces are counter trend, and sometimes with the trend.
Personally, I love “With The Trend” trades. They offer lots of juice for the squeeze.
HERE IT IS:
Our core strategy is threefold, working in unison to offer confluence.
Cotton + ICT + Market Profile = Core Strategy
I know, I know. You probably said, “What????” lol. No problem.
This Quick Start Guide will walk you through this Core Strategy.
These three strategies offer confluence on top of confluence on top of confluence.
I took these three independent strategies and created one CORE STRATEGY out of them. It works like gang busters – it really does.
Join my group for one month and you just might NEVER leave!
Trading as a GROUP, via zoom, with the SAME charts looking for the SAME trades is just awesome. You are looking at my CHART to make sure you are marking YOUR chart right. Plus we talk trades, set-ups, market direction, ….
I know… weird name.. but amazing information and trader.
If you had to know ONE THING, this is it!
ICT and Market Profile is icing on the cake, so-to-speak.
Trust me, it took MANY attempts to get through his stuff but this guy is ON THE MONEY! Accurate and precise.
Cotton is the FOUNDATION of my core strategy. He is the first ingredient into my Gumbo.
You will hear us say, “Cotton Levels”. We are referring to this guy!
A majority of this Quick Start Guide is a “cliff notes” version of Cotton’s training. BUT, if you want to hear it DIRECT from HIM… use this link!
I recommend you take notes! Start a new training document on your computer. Save links. Screenshot and save them to your notebook to reference later.
This IS like going to college for trading!
If you want to get it straight from the horses mouth, start with Level 1 and go through them all. It is about 100+ hours of training.
I have done them ALL three times PLUS I was in his private mentorship for additional training.
If you want to “Do It Yourself”?
Here you go (Or you can join our group and I will lead you through the training).
Our System Is A Combination of:
* Cotton (His information is central. Watch every video 2-3 times!) After you have done all of Cotton’s videos, joined his Discord, and are still interested in trading with some MES/ES traders using Cotton + Market Profile + some ICT Concepts, consider Joining our trading room.
LINK TO COTTON VIDEOS: https://www.youtube.com/c/c0tt0nc4ndyTA/videos
* ICT (2022 Mentorship, specifically. He is a madman!) https://www.youtube.com/c/InnerCircleTrader/videos
* Market Profile (Shadowtrader, Paul Asmar from CamelBack trading, Dalton).
“ICT Mentorship 2022” is the group of videos you are looking for. There are about 50 of them.
ICT is incredible.
This guy’s set up is basically Cotton on Steroids!
Do NOT worry about ICT stuff UNTIL you have went through Cotton. Cotton is the FOUNDATION on which everything is built.
You will learn an amazing set up AND you will learn about the power of FVG (Fair Value Gaps).
Just to recap so far. You NEED to learn Cotton. Then ICT. Then Market profile. Inside the Zoom each day, you will be exposed to each of them.
Market Profile is a tougher one. This takes the MOST time to learn in my humble opinion.
I will boil it down to the essentials inside the Quick Start Guide.
I do not have ONE resource to use for this.
But… if I had to give you a BOOK or GURU for Market Profile… here you go.
Markets in Profile
But the book is so blinding boring, I couldn’t even read it! Seriously.
Shadowtrader is a great resource. Personally, I subscribe to this newsletter. It is only $20 and worth every penny to me. Shadowtrader (Peter) also has a youtube channel.
When NOT To Trade
Knowing when NOT TO TRADE is IMPORTANT.
Look what happened this AM!
40 points in under 60 seconds. Can you afford to be wrong? (One ES contract would hurt.. 40 Points X $50/Point = $2000 in 60 seconds.)
What if you were on the wrong side?
OUCH… a SINGLE candle CAN blow up an account, thus setting off a chain of emotional events and horrible trade entries promising “if I can only get back to even”.
Just don’t trade that!
Know WHEN news is being released.
See picture below.
You BETTER know to be FLAT (no position) BEFORE that news release!!!
What news will be released today? What will be released tomorrow that might effect todays trading? What is being released the week? FOMC? Non Farm Payroll? CPI?
Look for yellow and red folder events. This will be discussed more in the “When Not To Trade” part of this training series.
Times To Avoid Trading
Yellow and Red folder events! FOMC, Non-Farm Payroll, CPI, Fed Chair Speaking, …
MARK these events on your chart. I will draw a VERTICAL LINE at the time and add a NOTE. A big thick RED vertical line.
There is more INSIDE the DISCORD Group….

You are a professional trader.
Right? If so… say it out loud. Own it. Most people NEVER say the words. They are too afraid. Not you! You are a lion. So… Declare it to yourself. Take ownership. Make it known. Shout it like Braveheart. Wear it with a badge of honor.
“I AM a professional trader.”
Now.. let’s get down to business.
Robotic Disciplined Entry.
Take GREAT pride in your ENTRIES. Be the ENTRY KING. Demand impeccable entries.
__Perfect entry solves nearly all problems.__
Robotic entries **ARE** within your CONTROL.
Robotic exits **ARE** within your CONTROL.
Robotic Discipline Entry requires strong BUTT muscles. WAIT & WAIT & WAIT.
Robotic disciplined entries TAME our emotions too. It keeps emotions in line b/c you KNOW you did the right thing (*and will do the right thing*) at the right time.
Undisciplined entry with an undisciplined stop loss will WRECK YOU.
Taking perfect entry with a perfect loss is par for the course. No biggie. You ain’t scared! Bring it on. I BEG you. POST your perfect entry, perfect loss trades. These should be celebrated!
WHY ARE YOU TAKING LOSSES?
Track your losses:
WHY DID THIS TRADE LOSE MONEY?
( ) Undisciplined Entry. (*I like losing money. It’s my favorite. Level-Schmevel. I am smarter than Cotton, ICT, & Profile combined. I’ll do what I want. George can go jump in the lake. My chart. My way!*)
( ) Undisciplined Exit. (*Never let a winner turn into a loser. Always respect the stop loss. “I like bigger losses b/c I know it will come back. Trust me, I know.” *)
( ) Disciplined Entry. Wrong Entry Analysis. (*”I had patient entry. However, my analysis to enter was incorrect. I have made the necessary changes in my playbook. I “see” where my analysis was incorrect. I understand it. It won’t happen again.”*)
( ) Great entry. Great Analysis. Perfect Loss. (*Great Job! It happens! No BIG Deal! Next!*)

“Seeing the Market”
To Laddering Down
Adapting One Time Framing Up, One Time Framing Down, and Balance from Market Profile principles.
THOUGHT: When we take out a 3 Min (or higher) break level… we are no longer “laddering up”, nor “laddering down”… We are NOW in “BALANCE”. Today was a great example.
Balance could mean… do NOTHING. Or play the range bounces til it doesn’t work.
