Frequently Asked Questions
about @michigandolf


What I Trade

I primarily trade the ES Mini (ES), but will also trade NQ, RTY, GC, and Bonds (poorly).  I also swing trade stocks, as well as invest for the long-haul in a variety of sectors.  I also enjoy "off-beat" investments, such as modern art, vintage books, comic books, vinyl records, NFTs...basically anything collectable.

How I Trade

The vast majority of the content I post on Twitter is related to day trading index futures.  Most of these trades are closed by the end of the day, but my strategy allows for a scalp trade to turn into a swing trade if I happen to catch a local top/bottom.

I also occasionally post about stocks that I'm swing trading. The majority are momentum based trades, but I also like to buy/sell extremes from a Volume Profile perspective.

A large portion of my strategy also comes from swing trading SPY using a proprietary system based on volatility and activity in the SPY & SPX options market.

Tools of the Trade

I utilize a variety of market tools to day trade.  The one I get asked about most is this one from Bookmap Pro:


Check out their website if you're interested.

I also rely heavily on:

- Volume by Price (Volume Profiling)

- Delta by Price

- The 30min Opening Range (search for Michigandolf on TradingView for a free 30min OR Script)

- Support and Resistance Lines (Technical Analysis)

- Previous Day's Highs/Lows + Opening Price

- Session Pivots

- The toolset from OrderflowLabs

- SPX & SPY Options Flow/Positioning

- Fading awful FinTwit Furus


For trade execution, I use Sierra Chart (Denali + CQG), Tradovate, Thinkorswim, and Rithmic.
