    At Long Winter Trading Company, we believe that trading is hard.

    That’s what we love about it. Trading is perhaps the most difficult career path a person can take. They must face the unknown each day and do it with their own capital with countless variables at play. We don’t expect trading to come easy. We don’t expect trading to allow you to remain in your current state. We do expect that, when mastered, trading can provide both a lifestyle and knowledge of self that is well beyond the normal person.

    Thoughtful creative expression has a way of changing a person. This site is simply a mechanism for self-change and the pursuit of that which has value.

  • Sharks in the Water - Roundtable

    Cleo and Baba Yaga join in this week to explore the topic of boredom in trading and how it can affect decision-making. The hosts discuss the importance of developing a strategy that is easy and relatively boring to trade, as heightened emotions can lead to poor choices. They also touch on the challenges of managing expectations and pressure as a trader. Baba Yaga shares his experience of relearning and finding a balance between excitement and steady decision-making, highlighting the need to acknowledge and set aside external pressures to perform well. Baba reflects on the recent conversation with 2yrflipper who had a clear and confident decision-making process and how that made him realize that he needed to work on his own decision-making and confidence. They also share their thoughts on Roaring Kitty’s recent livestream before sharing some Good/Bad/Ugly moments from the past week and someone makes the boldest prediction yet!

  • The Role of QA in Trading: Ft. Brian McAboy

    Brian McAboy, founder of Inside Out Trading and Host of Consistent Profits joins Kyle to discuss how he uses aspects of Quality Assurance in his trading. He emphasizes the need for traders to develop themselves and focus on consistency. Brian also highlights the skills and training required for successful trading, drawing parallels to business investment and management. The conversation delves into the psychological aspects of trading and the necessity of proper training to overcome challenges.

    About Brian:

    Brian McAboy started trading back in the 1990's and has been helping traders become successful traders since January 2006.  He is a retired Project Engineer, Process Engineer and Quality Engineer.

    During Brian’s first year of trading, he made the common mistake of underestimating what it takes to be a trader and didn’t pay the markets or this occupation the proper respect. As a result, he paid a hefty price of over $45,000, loads of personal capital and nearly lost his marriage over it.

    Fortunately, Brian had the Quality Assurance experience working in manufacturing. When he applied the Quality Assurance methodology to his trading, he found that it works amazingly well, just like it has in the business world for decades to get struggling operations under control and predictably profitable.

    He then also applied his business acumen to further build that solid foundation that nearly all traders don’t get to really give him a solid base and peace of mind. Brian teaches these same success practices and methods to traders so that they can fill the gap in their training as well and enjoy relaxed, profitable trading too.

    Brian’s years of experience Quality Assurance and Business Consulting allow him to provide unique, effective and refreshing resources to the traders of the world. His focus is helping traders achieve self-sufficiency through the application of Quality and Business principles and practices that result in proficiency and success.

In the often-challenging landscape of trading, Joel's authenticity and transparency create a supportive environment within the Band of Traders community.

  • “Taking Who You Are and Making It More” - Humanity w/ Andrew (AKA Bigfoot)

    Andrew (Formerly known as Bigfoot) joins Kyle and Cleo in the latest Humanity of Trading episode to discuss parts work… What that means and how he has applied it to his own trading. He emphasizes the need to understand and work with different parts of oneself and shares his experience of hiring different “parts”, such as the risk manager and the thrill-seeker, to create a cohesive trading approach. By recognizing and integrating these parts, traders can improve their decision-making and overall performance. Andrew talks through the different states of mind he employs in trading before giving Cleo some insights into her own team based on a worksheet we filled out before the recording. Andrew suggests that Cleo should recognize and embrace her playful and present side in trading, and also utilize her adaptability and improvisational skills when things don't go as planned. Cleo mentions that interruptions and going off the rails are common in her work, and she handles them by validating the situation and finding a way to bring it back on track. Cleo and Kyle share their initial resistance to this approach but acknowledge its potential benefits. They explore the tension between rule-based discipline and improvisation in trading, and how to find a balance between the two. Andrew emphasizes the need to identify moments of completion in trading and transition between different aspects of one's personality. They also discuss the importance of self-reflection, accepting all parts of oneself, and confronting negative self-talk.

  • "Just Don't Quit Before You Figure It Out" - Roundtable

    This week’s roundtable topic comes from Perdue (who unfortunately had some technical issues and couldn’t join in). Fleri and Baba Yaga talk about the importance of perseverance, learning from failures, and having a defined trading process. They also touch on the concepts of decision fatigue, sustainability, and the need to preserve capital. Both emphasize the importance of having clear setups, being able to recognize opportunities, and having the confidence to execute trades. The key takeaways: the need for grit, continuous learning, and the ability to adapt and refine one's trading approach. They also highlight the importance of perseverance and resilience in trading, emphasizing the need to embrace losses and understand that losing is a part of the trading process. Fleri points out the significance of having a well-defined trading strategy and being comfortable with the statistical probabilities of winning and losing. They also mention the role of natural talent in trading and the need to focus on personal progress rather than comparing oneself to others.

Eric Mason (Quincy CFO) and Rick Coscia (Quincy Strategic Asset Manager) join Kyle to explain why they decided to push forward with this deal, and what they hope to accomplish by embracing Digital Ledger Technology.

    2yrFlipper:

    Two years after leaving his position as an ARB clerk in the corn futures market, 2yrflipper found himself deeply entrenched in the world of bond trading. His journey took a significant turn when he became one of the early adopters of trading technology, wielding one of the first handheld devices in the trading pit. Despite acknowledging his limitations as a pit trader, his connection with Chip Kenyon, a prominent figure in the bond pit, paved the way for a remarkable opportunity. For the following two years, he immersed himself in trading a staggering volume of contracts on Chip's behalf, gaining invaluable insights into the intricacies of the trading screen that has fueled a long and successful trading career.

  • “Don’t Manage the Money… Manage the Trade” - Scalping w/ 2yrflipper

    Jeff (2yrflipper) is back for a deeper dive into the art of scalping, as he emphasizes the importance of knowing when to scratch a trade and how to catch edges. Jeff discusses the significance of correlations in scalping and the importance of staying organized, as well as his use of delta and timers in his trading strategy. Jeff recommends starting with a one-lot position size to maintain consistency and learn from each trade, and to focus on managing the trade rather than the money. Developing quick twitch muscles and practicing clicking fast can benefit new scalpers, as well as looking for anomalies in the DOM and time and sales to identify opportunities for scalping. Scalping requires dedication and the ability to stay focused for long periods of time, and Jeff emphasizes the importance of executing trades only when there is a perceived edge and staying away when there isn't.

  • Apex Fills & Using Momentum - Roundtable

    This week’s roundtable features a lively discussion around Mr. Banks’s recent “experience” with an Apex eval account, and Fleri shares some ideas about how to incorporate momentum into our trading. The panelists discuss their experiences with Apex, highlighting issues such as lack of transparency and poor customer service while also mentioning Top Step as a prop firm with good customer service. In terms of gauging momentum, they emphasize the importance of watching rotations and levels, as well as volume and tape reading, to determine the strength of a move. They discuss the significance of counter rotations and the disrespecting of support or resistance levels as indicators of momentum.

    Mr. Banks:

    Working as a commercial banker and trading on the side helped Mr. Banks develop his trading style into what it is today. As a banker, his main thought is: “What’s the worst that can happen and how can I mitigate that risk?” Taking that same thought process into trading has made him focus more on his trade setups. Trade with confidence, trade what the market gives and limit the unknown factors.

  • “Only a Trader Could Understand This” - Humanity w/ Anthony Crudele

    Anthony Crudele, host of Futures Radio Show joins Cleo and me to share how he got into trading and podcasting, and the (mostly) positive impacts of them on his personal life. The conversation then shifts towards sustaining success and how it can be harder than attaining it initially. Anthony shares how the pressure to keep what you have and continue building on it can be overwhelming… External and internal pressures, such as expectations from others and the fear of losing what you've gained, make sustaining success difficult. Navigating this requires envisioning yourself as a successful trader, acting as if you are already successful, and seeking guidance from mentors or successful individuals. Anthony then talks about his growth as a trader and how he has learned to slow things down and be more patient. He shares how his relationship with trading has evolved and how he now sees it as a puzzle to solve rather than a constant chase for profits. They also discuss the challenges Anthony is currently facing and how he deals with losses and setbacks before concluding with a reflection on how trading has shaped him as a person.

    Crudele’s trading style evolved from scalping to a hybrid approach, emphasizing execution, market environment analysis, and knowing when to trade big, small or not at all. His Beacon indicator, born out of personal trading challenges, serves as a mean reversion tool, aiding traders in navigating market dynamics and avoiding trades against prevailing momentum.

    Baba Yaga:

    Solving problems, helping set goals, and refining processes is the bulk of Baba's passion. He does that in many contexts ranging from nonprofits to real estate firms and everything in between. He focuses on market structure through the lens of TPO charting and executes based on volume, misplaced large orders, and delta. He loves the opening range breakout and typically trades the market from the “inside out”.

    Joel MC:

    A dedicated and aspiring trader who has not only been a crucial part of Kyle's support system but has also embraced the trading journey with unmatched enthusiasm. As a power lineman, husband, and proud father of two wonderful daughters, Joel brings a unique blend of kindness, support, and motivation to the Band of Traders community.

    Joel's venture into trading wasn't merely a financial pursuit; it was a desire to actively engage with the market beyond traditional buy-and-hold ETF investing. Trading, particularly in futures, became more than just a financial endeavor for Joel. It evolved into a genuine passion, a game he enjoys playing, regardless of the monetary outcomes.

    What sets Joel apart is not just his passion, but his willingness to open up and share his struggles. In the often-challenging landscape of trading, Joel's authenticity and transparency create a supportive environment within the Band of Traders community. Beyond the charts and numbers, Joel has discovered a sense of camaraderie that extends beyond mere acquaintances – to what he now considers a brotherhood.
