Struggling with a post-mortem on your most recent unprofitable trade? Got a question relating to the SITM course material? At the Trading Tutors desk we are here to help, so if you have a question, please send an email to

First and foremost, a common area of questioning relates to the ABC paper trading exercises from the Smarter Starter Pack. In the latest version, the three exercises use historical trading data from BHP, the Euro Dollar and the S&P 500 Stock Index. These exercises are a vital part of your SITM education, and also lay the foundation for Price Forecasting. We also still support similar trading exercises from earlier versions of the Smarter Starter Pack.

Have you attempted the exercises yet? Is that a yes?! If so I have a small task (but also a little reward) for you..:

See if you can fully complete and email me an ABC trading plan for the ABC short trade in the Platinum futures market (chart symbol PL-SpotV in ProfitSource) with a Point C date of 25 June 2018. If this is completed correctly I have a small but useful piece of knowledge I will email back in return! For those of you without ProfitSource, just email me and I can send you a PDF file with the relevant data, in the same format as the data in the Smarter Starter Pack.

In the meantime, if you have any other enquiries (trade analysis, trade execution, software enquiries or simply getting started) we’d love to hear from you!

Work hard but remember to work smart.
