Interview: OpenTrader Student’s 6-Figure Month Trading E-mini Futures

Earlier today, we received an email from one of our students (Adam) who just had a 6-figure month trading the E-mini S&P Futures using the methodology we teach in the OpenTrader Training Program. He achieved this using relatively modest position sizing of 20-30 contracts per trade. Making over $100K in a single month is impressive on its own, but to top it off, Adam had just one losing day in January.

We got on a phone call with Adam earlier today for an informal interview, so he could share his insights and lessons with everyone else, while also serving as inspiration for what can be achieved when you dedicate yourself and stay persistent in working towards your goals and vision.

    Great interview and a great encouragement to me as I am in the learning phase with Awais and Ziad now.


    How can you say that 20-30 contracts is modest? Each tick is $250 – $375. Margin of 95,160 – 142740.

    • Everything is relative. He risked about $2000 per trade and ended up making over $100,000. That’s making more than 50x your per-trade risk, which is an incredible result. Most traders would need to risk a lot more (and therefore trade much larger contract sizes) to achieve such a return, which is why it’s modest in relative terms.

    I’m curious as to how Adam fared in the months following his big winning month in Jan.?

    This is one of the best interviews/commentaries about trading that I have ever came across. I think anyone who has traded for some time can see themselves in Adam. I know I have literally followed the same path. I’ve been trading stocks for almost a year and a half, had successes and failures. I still consider myself a novice of course, working on discipline and patience. I have recently become interested in trading crude oil futures and I have been studying the market and a trading strategy for 1 month. I am planning on trading a Demo account for another month or so, then start out small with 1 contract. Congratulations to Adam and I am going to check out your website. It is very interesting and I like how you tell things how they are, not like the so called “Guru’s” out there. Trading is not a get rich quick venture, I have learned that the hard way. I feel the one of the most important aspects of success in any market is self mastery. Just as you say.
