      I'm very impressed at your discipline and humility. You resisted the temptation to swing for the fences until you totally drained your account. Your part in this challenge was as important to see as Matt's. These are the realities of trading, and most of us fall on your side of the experience.

      @L A I day trade too. The reason why only a small number of people can make a it a successful career is because they over leverage and can’t handle the losses. Most people quit because they thought it would be easy. When you lose thousands of dollars, reality begins to sink in and you get depressed to the point where you don’t want to do it anymore. The small few people who can dust themselves off afterwards and keep learning are the successful ones.

      You are absolutely wasting your time and money. Day trading is not profitable. If you want to day trade, use algo or learn to code it yourself.

      @L A just because you’ve been unsuccessful doesn’t mean the rest of society will be. People enjoy this kind of stuff and some people aren’t exactly financially restricted on what they can and can’t do.

      @jsean nice man commit to learning and sticking through the mental exhaustion and you can achieve anything. Just don’t follow Matt or any other TheXvidr as gospel, there are very few who should be called an educator in this space. Get motivated from them but don’t copy trades or think their strategy is the secret sauce.

    Used to watch Matt everyday when I traded - one thing that always impressed me was his patience to sit in a trade. I remember there was one day he sat in a long and was -$2000 in draw down; he was patient and waited for it to play out and ended up going green on the trade. I dont remember how long it took, but long enough for me to have had multiple heart attacks if it were me in the trade.

    • devendra talreja
      devendra talreja 17 days ago

      @Earth Euphoria at one point he was down 7 or 8k in that trade. He averaged down and was in for 4 minis at that point.

    • Earth Euphoria
      Earth Euphoria 18 days ago

      ​@devendra talreja​$2k is small for him. I was there when he lost $9k. I believe he trade better off camera tho, because the chat is very distracting.

      KIMSTER 18 days ago +2

      Matt has gambling tendency. Thetes a difference in being smart patient and dumb patient. His sole reason to not pull out from that big negative was all emotions and hope. No market logic whatsoever

    • devendra talreja
      devendra talreja 20 days ago +2

      I saw that trade. It was a disaster. I followed him after watching this above video for quite some time but he majorly made losses. If you observe his trades, he mostly tries to take reversal trades which are hard to catch in the first place and he doesn't use a strict SL. The trade that you are referring to, he was averaging down while in a loss but he was lucky that the price turned around. Won't happen everytime though. I wouldn't get impressed by it, it can wreck your account in just a day.

      K Intensity 2 months ago +2

      @Scarecrooo the account he “blew up” is a $3000 drawdown account. He can only lose $3000 in a day or he gets kicked out. So if he makes $20000 over a month then loses more than $3000 one day he still made $17000. It’s out of context

    • Marvin -
      Marvin - 2 months ago

    Love these series! Looking forward to seeing more about trading. I’ve been trading for a year and still not profitable overall. But I’m learning everyday and I’m sure there will a huge light at the end of the tunnel! I took a mentorship with one guy and in two sessions I’m already stepping up my game and i just realized the practice itself is a slow learning path. You need to stick with someone who knows what he is doing like this guy that you did challenge with. Pay him or another guy you trust for 1 on 1 mentorship and it will be a game changer. Good luck! Please continue doing these series. One day we will see a green results!

  • TradingAlien - Follow My Futures & Crypto Journey!

    Watch both of them, great challenge guys 🔥 (more of these 😛👌)
    Been watching TBM since 2020 and inspired me to start trading futures as well.
    Definitely can relate to Daniel's being chopped up..
    I still have that myself sometimes and sometimes due to choppy markets,
    ignoring major levels in both directions, but also due to my own errors and
    trading too large for the account size..
    (notice how Matt often enough has 1k+ drawdown
    on trades that still look good but it started chopping first,
    so you need to know what your favorite and high probability
    setups are and allow for a small enough position to sit through possible drawdown.
    Or take several stabs at a setup, each with a smaller SL).

    Thank you Daniel and Matt for making this video! It was really interesting seeing the side by side. Also huge kudos Daniel for finishing strong on the challenge. You traded till the end and even made a profit on your last day. I would have been tempted to overleverage if it had been me. Regarding future trading challenges... maybe something that is peaking your interest! Can you trade art on masterworks secondary market for a week? (and could be a plug for another sponsor vid too!)

    Great Video! I mean, what an excellent idea!
    You said it, bud. You took as many trades on day 2 as Matt took in 2 days. It was amazing to see how diligent, and conservative Matt was in the beginning, but he immediately started to leverage his small gains and applied his capital where it would yield the best result. The setups he takes have a good risk/reward associated with them, but more importantly are just high probability setups. When Matt 'overtrades' after loosing 'big', he still picks only these high probability setups, and in fact becomes more selective where others are more emotional. Again, thanks so much for this video!

    Awesome challenge. Started watching Matt's streams a few months ago and don't regret it. Had no clue he pulled off an $8k+ day post-stream... that's absolutely wild.
    Daniel, great idea and appreciate the transparency. I blew my first account 3-4 months ago, now starting super small on my second. Overtrading, impulsive anger-trading (after taking a series of losses) and greed WILL fuck you in these markets. Futures is super dangerous lol

      Most newbies usually undermine and neglect the importance of technical analysis with regards to trading. Technical analysis overly predicts the movement of assets prices regardless of what is happening in the wider or broader market. Essentially, the education involves studying the paths of a particular asset movement in this past so as to establish a sustainable pattern that can be used to predict future movement of an asset. Doing technical analysis can be quite different which is why most newbies / traders neglect day trading their stocks/ coins and stick to holding which is very dangerous as when the market goes bearish, advise any newbies / traders to buy the dip for traders who are still wondering to enter the market or old time traders who are holders to seek help from not just any trader but an established trading expert with at least 96% trade accuracy .I underwent series of trading loses l'd best not talk about before I was introduced to trading analyst...

    Its like playing poker. When you're in the zone and rocking it keep raising the stakes to get to higher games and level up but the moment you're on tilt and you're going bust walk away and preserve your bank roll to play another day. Never bring all of your money to the table. Only play with what can be lost comfortably.

    Five important things about investing or Trading.
    1. Know your opponent, i.e.(The Brokerage platform) and that your interest are not aligned.
    The broker has a job to do, introduce you to the stockmarket, facilitate your trade and try take your money for the company they've been employed by. Anyone tells you different doesn't know how this game is really played, period.
    2. Develope an entry and exit plan, before every trade, for he or she who fails to plan, plans to fail. No know what you want from your investment, Win Lose or Draw. The stock market is a percentage game not a dollar game. On average the stock market or any stock moves 1% up or down daily. There for a $100 investment, would only yield 1% Return daily, do the math.
    3. Invest or trade only the best stocks because if you can't win with the best, you should know the rest doesn't stand a chance. When selecting a stock, understand it's fundamentals because it's not about timing when to buy it but rather the time you will spend in it, to benefit from it.
    4. Day trading is not a reality for the average trader period because it's more about algorithms and high frequency Trading by big hedge funds. Don't be fooled by the stockmarket hype.The stock market is not a quick fix to your finances, it takes time to make money in this game.
    5. My goal is not to discourage but to encourage you to make thoughtful and calculated moves. All that I ask, is that you do me a favor and remember where you heard from, peace, love and soul....

    1. You need to have a system that limits you to trading only favorable setups with great optionality. 2. You should stop trading micros, they are designed to rip you off, commissions are huuuge relative to the trade size, you will be lot more comfy with 10k account and trading minis 3. Get a reputable discount broker, not a sham shop

    Hi Daniel, great content! I really appreciate your being open about your journey but I really think you should be more patient with yourselve and your progress...It´s a long learning curve to become a profitable trader and with long I mean years....Maybe you should consider to trade forex first where you can start really low with nano lots, to stay in the game, get used to it and to not blow your accounts....Keep going, keep learning and keep the faith!!

    He did mention you yesterday during his live stream. YT algorithm is scary.
    Anyways - thanks so much for sharing this!!! The reason why 95-99% of traders lose money is that they watch videos that suggest a 90% winning scalping strategy (lol) rather than this and understand what it takes to become good.

    Dude thank you seriously for this video. One thing I’m curious about was his share sizes.

      Looks like 1-5 minis. If you watch Matt's live stream, pretty sure he typically trades 1-3 mini contracts

    Cool video man! Just watched your 2nd video of your 1K challenge. It would be awesome if you could do another video of you getting some coaching with Matt and then going head to head again.
    I hope the haters do realise that day trading is so lucrative if you put the time in.

    Daniel, can you do a video showing how to plan swing trades? I feel like no videos quite show it in a practical use. :). Great video!

    “Push yourself to that spot to where you hate it and can’t stand it to level up” sooo true! Once you hit the bottom the only way is up.

      @Voltz20 He traded futures since 2018, but probably has been trading other things (like bluechip and penny stocks like he mentioned) way before

    • Voltz20

      I think he said he was trading since 2018, so roughly 4 years

    Lmao. If trading was "gambling", as all those comments at 00:58 suggested, then how did Matt beat Daniel by so much, assuming it's a gamble and they both that 50/50 chances of winning. Facepalm. Trading is a skill, like any other. Those who call it gambling are simply losers who can't accept it's their incompetence that's losing them money.

      @Jake Rabson You can't rely on that strategy on a futures margin account.
