Welcome to Smashelito's ES/SPX Newsletter
Hi, traders! And welcome. This is Smashelito - best known for smashing levels using Market Generated Information x Order Flow. I primarily trade E-mini S&P 500 Futures (ES), but I also have experience trading a variety of other financial products. I use Market and Volume Profile for analyzing market structure, and Depth of Market (DOM), Time and Sales (TAPE), and my customized Footprint charts for analyzing order flow and executing trades.
Smashelito's ES/SPX Newsletter
This newsletter offers daily and weekly trading plans for E-mini S&P 500 Futures (ES) that include accurate levels and market context. The plans are presented in a visually appealing and easy-to-understand format, complete with clean and concise charts using my concepts of Smashlevels and Smashmodel Extremes. I rely heavily on these concepts as part of my systematic approach to intraday trading in order to make objective, data-driven decisions and avoid being influenced by emotions. This helps me maintain discipline and prevent impulsive or irrational trades. Additionally, these plans include a lot of educational content, to help traders of all levels gain a deeper understanding of the markets.
Smashlevel is my personal short-term pivot for the upcoming session, which is based on various contextual factors. It is important to note that this is not an automatic buy/sell level, but rather a reference point. Levels alone are not meaningful unless they are confirmed by order flow. Smashmodel Extremes (SME) are data-driven and not based on references from the chart.
This newsletter is delivered directly to your inbox with every new edition, keeping you informed and up-to-date with the latest trading plans and market insights.
The daily plans are published prior to the start of the overnight session to make navigation easier for overnight traders.
The weekly plans are published on the weekends and provide a comprehensive overview of the week ahead. These plans offer a broad perspective on the market and highlight key levels for traders to observe as they plan for the week.
…and best part: both are completely free.
The Importance of Having a Trading Plan
A trading plan is crucial for traders who aim to stay organized, focused, and disciplined, and to improve their chances of success in the market. A well-defined plan allows traders to make informed decisions and avoid impulsive trades driven by emotions. A trading plan can also help manage risk by anticipating market scenarios and protecting capital. Additionally, it serves as a tool to evaluate performance and make improvements.
To achieve consistent and profitable trading, I always recommend that traders establish a pre-market routine as a crucial step. Approaching the market with a professional attitude and distancing oneself from the majority of traders will significantly enhance one's chances of success.
