Our Client’s Performance is our Number One Priority every day we trade!

“The only true test of a trading strategy is does it produce real results, in real time, for our trading clients!”
Lachlan Elsworth 12 January 2015



Our Goal is to be the Best Performing Live Trading Room globally!

At IDTA, the results that matter most to us are the results posted by our loyal IDTA Members, live into our Live Trading Room.

The IDTA Live Trading Room is open to members of all skill levels, from the most junior trader to the most advanced. The Live Trading Room offers every client globally, the opportunity to measure the performance of the IDTA strategy live in the market and with 100% transparency.

We also believe that real people just like you, taking real trades, in real time, reporting real results, is the cutting edge of Live Trading Room performance transparency.

 

Here is a snap shot of what has been achieved in our Live Trading Room**

The Live Trading Room text grabs featured below are an extract of what has been posted into the Live Trading Room by our members, both winning trades and losing trades, on the dates detailed. Our intent initially is to give you visibility of the results being posted by our members in the Live Trading Room. Our intent secondly is to identify traders who are moving forward quickly and publicly recognize them for their achievements. Regardless of your standard of trading, consistency of trade execution and a positive trading psychology are your keys to success in trading and the Member Posts are intended to reinforce this consistency. All traders in the IDTA Live Trading Room have access to the same strategy, as such, the Live Chat Posts also provide our clients globally with a performance yard stick to monitor their progress and make adjustments as necessary!

** Please note that these member posted results have not been independently verified or audited by IDTA nor can these results be used as an indication of the past performance or the future performance of the strategy. IDTA has over 1000 clients in 16 countries and to verify every result posted into the Live Trading Room, on a daily basis, would be an impossible daily task. Trading days that do not result in a trade being called in the Live Trading Room will be commented on accordingly.

 

Wednesday 13 December 2017 – FOMC & Contract Rollover Keep Markets Sluggish

Markets were very sluggish again today with FOMC meetings scheduled for Thursday morning 5am and contract roll over scheduled for the end of the week. Despite the markets sluggish nature, members in the Asia Open room chipped away and reported the following:

Members in the 101+ room also chipped away as follows below. Special attention to andrewd’s posts below. Many times, junior traders will take a loss and let it affect them personally and thereby miss other opportunities. Andrewd shows the way to do it. He takes a loser and comes right back and makes it up. Good lesson to take on board! Congrats!

Even the best laid plans sometimes fizzle out as Johno found out last night when the larger chart move triggered and failed. It didn’t seem to affect the members in the room who posted the results below in an otherwise choppy market. Special mention to PamelaK, fresh off last week’s Platinum course, posting a nice gain.

 

Tuesday 12 December 2017 – UUGH! Contract Rollover Week! Read all the way through!

The Asia Open room took a bit of clunker this morning as a picture perfect looking setup decided to turn the other way. Andrewd probably reflected the sentiment of this morning’s members when he posted the last comment below! 🙂 Members posted the following results:

Members in the 101+ room had nice trades on currency, gold and Fdax. Members in the 101+ as recorded below:

Although the “Amazing Moderating John” called another 50+ gain in the Platinum Room, we had no members post results for the session. The highlight of this session was John’s attempted explanation of how the calculation to measure efficiency in the market works. After repeated, and failed, attempts at a verbal explanation, John decided to post the actual calculation to the room. His calculation and member comments are below:

Thanks Johno for an unforgettable chuckle!

 

Monday 11 December 2017 – Join The Trading Rooms!

The Asia Open markets moved slowly this morning, yet there were some trades to be had. While a quick scalp trade caught a few members out looking for larger targets, gains were quickly realized on a later trade. Members posted the following results:

Members in the 101+ room had nice trades on currency, gold and Fdax. Members in the 101+ as recorded below:

Amazingly sideways is the only way to describe the Fdax during the Euro Open. Even so, John was able to call a trade that many members were able to pick up as they posted below:

Meanwhile, members in the 101+ Post Euro session continue to rock and roll:

 

Friday 8 December 2017 – Another Good Week in the LTRs!

Members trading the new Asia Open time slot are collecting solid gains. Special mention to AlanD, AndrewR & SteveG for double digits wins! Members posted the following results:

Members in the 101+ room are hitting their stride and collecting solid gains. Members in the 101+ as recorded below:

The Platinum sessions have been very, very slow as Fdax has decided to go sideways during the Euro Open time slot.  We all know this is temporary and we expect the Dax to be at its usual pace soon. Even so, some members were able to grab the occasional trade.

Please note: Next week is contract rollover week for many of the markets we trade. As volume for each market rolls over to the next contract, expect a bit of slow trading as the volume for each market is split between contracts.

 

Thursday 7 December 2017 – Time to Roll!

Members trading the new Asia Open time slot are knocking it out of the park! The Currencies and Gold were moving nicely and predictably and conditions were great for good returns. Tanya again gets special mention for some solid trading and good performances all around. Is that andrewd with a loss on a trade?! Was wondering if that ever happened?! LOL! Those that follow the posts know that andrewd has been posting some amazing results and that we are just having a bit of fun with him! Members posted the following results:

Members in the 101+ room had a bit of struggle for a while with mixed results. Members in the 101+ as recorded below:

Wow! The Fdax was amazingly flat for the entire session while it was waiting for a bank of news to post. Unfortunately the news was all during our session which made it almost impossible to trade. That being said, some members managed to do quite well in relatively slow conditions:

Meanwhile, the 101+ Post Euro session continues to rock and roll:

 

Wednesday 6 December 2017 – Bit of a Mixed Bag Today – Again! >

Members trading the new Asia Open time slot performed very well as the market rolled nicely and predictably. Special shout out to Martin & Becca for one trade of +30, Tanya for a steady +28 and to Andrew for some nice trading from the night before. Members posted the following results:

It was a mixed bag of wins and losses as the currency markets proved to be a bit spikey. Congrats to those members who may have taken a loss but stayed the course and continued to take solid signals. Special mention to Shelley and Pam who both rocked the Fdax for some nice gains! Members in the 101+ as recorded below:

Members in the Platinum Room posted some nice gains on a rather slow moving night.

Congrats to all who did well in some difficult conditions.

 

Tuesday 5 December 2017 – Bit of a Mixed Bag Today! >

The Asia Open was a bit slow today with a minor loss and a good gain with members posting a positive overall:

Members in the 101+ LTR had mixed results as recorded below:

Special shout out to Matt for taking his first trade on his trading journey! We all can remember that first trade and we applaud Matt for taking that big first step! Well done!

 

Monday 4 December 2017 – Members in LTR just keep rolling along! >

It was tricky trading across all markets yesterday. Markets in the new Asia Open LTR were very quiet, while the afternoon 101+ and Advanced Room markets were very choppy and uneven. But that didn’t stop our members from recording good profits! Capital preservation was the order of the day, but there were trades to be had if you picked your spots to participate in accordance with the 101 course protocols. Members recorded the following results:

Special shout out to Derick for his +112 for the night across 4 markets. Honorable mention to Steve with a nice +31 gain. Congrats to all who participated and had positive results. Well done!

 

Friday 1 December 2017 – NEW LTR has winning start! >

The LTR started it’s new format and members in both rooms performed very well. Good to see so many members getting into the action and doing so well. Our members in the 101+ room stated the following:

The Advanced room markets were moving so quickly that the risk involved kept many members on the sidelines. Those that could handle the risk were rewarded mightily. Congrats on all traders, especially those that traded responsibly by staying on the sidelines. Your discipline and patience will hold you in good stead for the future! Special mention to Andrew for a monster night with +278 ticks and to John calling the LTR with +180 ticks! Well done!

 

Thursday 30 November 2017 – It’s a Great Time to Trade!>

Wow! What a night to trade! All markets were moving and many of our members took advantage. It is fun to see the strategies working for many markets and being applied so well by many members.

The best foundation to any learn to trade education is 100% transparency of what other people are doing. Special mention to Steve (+42), Petros (+65), Andrew (+62) and Kevin and Nick with +30s. Great job to all who took money from the markets last night!

 

Wednesday 29 November 2017 – Great results posted in LTR!

With the markets running well, the opportunities for big gains were abundant. And judging from the posted comments, many of our members profited mightily. The fun continues!

The best foundation to any learn to trade education is 100% transparency of what other people are doing. A HUGE well done to Tony, Pamela & Andrew (again!) for their results last night (btwn 43 & 70 ticks!)) and also a HUGE well done for every trader that followed the strategy and cashed in on the trades produced by the strategy.

Special Mention to Petros for his “Trader of the Day” performance of +83 for the day! Reminder after reminder that the strategies work!

 

Tuesday 28 November 2017 – We train for volatility and then we get very good at trading it!

Ok, so I get it, the market was volatile last night and it ran hard. Mind you, we know this and we train for this, hence we also get to trade both up and down when ever the market decides to run. I want to pass on a huge well done for what every trader achieved last night right across the market range. From FDAX to Currency we had a ball! The Post Euro Session was a little quite, again sure, because the market had already done its big move for the day!

The best foundation to any learn to trade education is 100% transparency of what other people are doing. A HUGE well done to Andrew for his results last night (over 100 ticks) and also a HUGE well done for every trader that followed the strategy and cashed in on the trades produced by the strategy.

Special Mention to Gareth for 17 winning trades in a row and also JohnN for another +50 ticks on the FDAX. 50 Ticks @ $20.00 AUD per tick are many reasons to celebrate a great trade taken by John, a trade also called live in the Live Trading Room!

 

Monday 27 November 2017 – Night’s like tonight remind me of why we love trading!!!

Based on the member posts in the image below I do not think much else needs to be said. I want to pass on a MASSIVE well done to our currency traders and FDAX traders alike as the market was so sweet with its movement and the Efficiency Indicators simply flew! I am super proud of the S&P500 traders who have switched out of the a.m. Session chasing better volatility, you deserve the reward for your initiative and your commitment to your own success!!!

The best foundation to any trading education is a foundation that is well understood and well executed by even the most new of traders. If you want to learn to trade the markets then my tip is learn to trade efficiency real quick! Even 16 ticks on the FDAX @ $20.00 AUD per tick, is still a plus $300.00 night (Gross Profit not including Clearing Fees).

Special Mention to anyone tonight who SMASHED their Daily Goal! Please note that there are losing trades in this LTR Chat Post and we are not shy to highlight that!

 

Friday 24 November 2017 – US Thanks Giving makes the market quiet yet we still got some good little posts!

Well done for those who traded the lower volatility tonight. The volume will return with vengeance on Monday.

A HUGE well done to those who stayed disciplined. Even in a low volatility session, the system still works!!!!

Special Mention to AndrewD on another brilliant day!

 

Thursday 23 November 2017 – Look out world, PETROS is in the house!

Leading in the a US Public Holiday typically triggers Europe into a trading frenzy. Many traders seek to get their trading out of the way before the holiday mood sets in. Big volume means big volatility, and PETROS clearly took advantage of the anticipated move! Well done mate, one of the biggest daily results I have seen so far!

Please do note that if you want to learn to trade the markets you must learn to accept losing trades. Please also note in this text grab there is a losing trade that was for (minus) 19 on the Yen. Minus 19 @ 6.25 per tick is worth just under $120.00 AUD in lost capital. We ask that every trader posts both winners and losers into every LTR Post and we appreciate

Special Mention to Steve for posting both his winning and his losing trades! Special Mention also to Petros on a STUNNING POST!

 

Wednesday 22 November 2017 – Well done Carmel on your Happy Dance!!!

Some days are just designed to test our resolve in the learn to trade journey. This day produced a number of losers and winners and also a number of frustrations. Stay disciplined everyone, there are over 280 x 5 Minute Candles each day and we only need one really good one to move forward!

Well done to Steph on a +56 on Gold. 56 Ticks @ $10.00 AUD per tick is 500 great reasons to love trading the gold market using Efficiency. Again, if you want to learn to trade, efficiency is rocking.

Special Mention to those who grabbed some small profit out of a difficult session.

 

Tuesday 21 November 2017 – While the markets were not particularly active, there were still plenty of opportunities for profit! Well done Traders!

A big ‘Well done!” to Martin & Becca for their +27 on the FDAX! Special mention to Andrew for his accumulation of ticks across a wide number of markets & to Mark, Jamie & Shelley for a yeoman’s job.

Volatility is our friend no matter if the market is running up or down!

 

Monday 20 November 2017 – What is Andrew eating for brekkie these days?!

Some great results from Shelley, Carmel & Pamela, but the overall champ of the night is Andrew with a whopping +130!

A well doen to Pamela for taking a -29 and followinig up with a +68 on FDAX. Many times inexperienced traders will sulk after a loss and miss a potential followup opportunity. Way to stay focused, Pamela!

Volatility is our friend no matter if the market is running up or down!

 

Friday 17 November 2017 – Another great Friday night. Beats dinner and a movie!

Congrats to Fred, Alan Mark & Martin & Becca for some strong results. Man of the match is Kevin with his 18 out of 19 winning trades! A great well done!

Volatility is our friend no matter if the market is running up or down!

 

Thursday 16 November 2017 – Massive Well done to David H for discovering his one thing!

It is great to see solid performances occurring night after night in the LTR. Nick was a solid +38 on currency and kevin keeps piling on the ticks +10 at a time on FDAX. Well done to everyone! Nice to see the strategies working across all markets!

I often say that the key to trading very well is finding the ‘One thing’ (read one algorithm) that makes most sense to you and then just focus on that! I am very excited for David that he has not only recognized the potential of Efficiency and he is getting on with the job of mastering it! Well done mate, keep chipping away!

Volatility is our friend no matter if the market is running up or down!

 

Wednesday 15 November 2017 – And we’re off to the races – Again!

Time to honor Petros, John & Claire for their solid performances and special kudos to Kevin for another great day of with 74 on FDAX, +10 ticks at a time. Great consistency & patience!

And what is going on with Andrew these days! Spectacular +264 ticks after a -52 earlier in the day! Way to stay focused! Congrats!

Volatility is our friend no matter if the market is running up or down!

Tuesday 14 November 2017 – That is a big night! Well done Traders, but please do note there is a loser!

It is hard to find a trader that I do not want to celebrate with after tonight’s trading. The biggest results were Andrew, Tony, John, Derrick and Fred. For me it is great to see that so many markets are being featured in the chat all using the IDTA Strategies.

Please note there is a negative result posted in the chat (red arrow) and I want to highlight to all that we do have winning trades and losing trades!

Volatility is our friend no matter if the market is running up or down!

 

Monday 13 November 2017 – Well done Traders, keep chipping away!

Another solid night of trades posted into the LTR. Trader of the night go to Andrew with +86 on Currencies and Pamela with +53 on FDAX. Congrats! Honorable mention also to Petros, Nick, Mark, John and Ricky of course! 86 Ticks on Currencies, @ $6.00 AUD per tick, is just over $500.00 AUD for the day and we think that is a great effort by Andrew.

I also called two other trades in this session, one on the Yen (for minus $120.00) and one on gold (for minus $110.00). Some small losing trades tonight offset by a large potential winner.

Let’s see what the markets have for us tonight, just be aware that it is a US Public Holiday so it may be a little quiet!

 

Friday 10 November 2017 – Here is a great lesson for all! If the market cannot go up it is highly likely to go down!

The Dax traders took a long tonight and it was a losing trade. The market seemed to want to go up but turned down hard. Not to be outflanked, the trading team jumped on the opportunity and ran the market back the other way. Please note that there were some minus 52’s followed by some plus 62’s to get the loss back and end in a profit.

Traders of mention include Mark, Martin, Pamela, Ricky, Nick and Petros just to mention a few. Well done to all currency traders also on a great session with pamela again getting a mention!

What a great way to end the trading week and well done to those who had a losing trade straight off the bat and then turned it into a winning night by not backing down after a loser!

 

Thursday 9 November 2017 – Well done FDAX Traders and Ricky on a great night’s trading last night!

I want to pass on a massive well done to the FDAX Traders in the Post Euro Lunch Session. The FDAX trade called by me personally returned results from +20 tics all the way through to +120 ticks. Check out Ricky at the FDAX 120 Mark (blue arrow) and all other results (highlighted in red). The FDAX has a value of $20.00 AUD per tick, so hence Ricky’s trade is a plus $2000.00 profit trade with only $300.00 at risk when the trade triggered.

I also called two other trades in this session, one on the Yen (for minus $120.00) and one on gold (for minus $110.00). Some small losing trades tonight offset by a large potential winner.

Let’s see what the markets have for us tonight, just be aware that it is a US Public Holiday so it may be a little quiet!

 

Wednesday 8 November 2017 – Not as volatile tonight but well done John on an FDAX +50!!!

I want to pass on a massive well done to John on the best trade of the night in this session. A +50 on FDAX with each tic being $20.00 AUD is a solid trade considering it had less than $280.00 at risk when it triggered. I must also mention the Yen, Euro and Gold Traders who profited tonight from some good little trades as well.

I also called a losing trade on the Euro/US Currency Cross Pair of 8 Tics. 8 Tics @ AUD $6.25 per tick is a loss of about $50.00 AUD.

Let’s see what the markets have for us tomorrow, we are expecting them to move faster!

 

Tuesday 7 November 2017 – Well the personal bests just keep getting broken!!!

A special mention goes to Iain, Lorna, Kevin, David, John, Pamela, Sonya, Damien and Andrew on a great night across both sessions in the Live Trading Room. Very special mention goes to Andrew with 106 tiks on Currency. 106 Tics @ $6.25 per tic is over $600 reasons to be happy with that result. Huge well done Andrew.

Great to see some Yen trades also in the mix as the Yen is the second most popular chart being traded by IDTA clients globally!

Well done all, keep chipping away day by day and strive to be a full time trader!!!

 

Monday 6 November 2017 – A very quiet start to the week! Its a no news Monday!

Make sure that you always check the pending news before you start trading. Why? Humans tend to some days make dangerous assumptions, like: “The Market moves every day!” and therefore “I will always get a trade”. When there is no news on the market, there is no news to drive the market, so please be careful of No News Mondays!

Special Mention to Andrew on a brilliant day!

 

Friday 3 November 2017 – A low volatility night but still some great trades!!

A Friday night with a heap of important news late in the session makes for a quiet Friday. So quiet that there were no signals called in the Post Euro Session.

Special Mention to Steve on the best trade of the day!

 

Thursday 2 November 2017 – A very low volatility night but still some trades!!

Again, the nemesis of a bank of news announcements. That’s o.k. A great strategy allows you to pick up the big days when they run and the slow days when they do not. A well done to those who stayed true to the strategy. Another Post Euro Session with no signals called but the Euro Open was not too bad.

Special Mention to Petros for getting some nice profit out of a super quiet night!

 

Wednesday 1 November 2017 – What a stunning start to the month!

I do not need to add much information to the screen shot below. Special mention goes to David, Christine, Kevin, Ed, John, David 2, Steve (Huge result), Shelley, Steve and Stephen of a brilliant Euro and Post Euro Session. Of note, 56 ticks on the FDAX, at $20.00 AUD per tick, is over $1000 reasons to celebrate a great night’s trading!

Great to see so many traders following the IDTA Strategies and slowly chipping away at being great traders!

Well done all, keep chipping away day by day and strive to be a full time trader!!!
