It's really about people who share a passion for Emini day trading
(PRWEB) November 23, 2011
That's the total number of visits to the Emini day trading site since it launched in October 2006, though the pace is picking up fast. Half of the total visits have come in the past year and the site is currently running at 2,000 visits a day. Meanwhile 4,000 people have subscribed to the daily video updates: yes, that's right, a video update.
Perhaps an even more impressive number is that the average visitor stays on the site for six and a half minutes. To put that into context, one study found that the average length of visit across all websites is just 43 seconds, showing Emini-Watch doesn't just attract visitors, it keeps them engaged.
Users of Emini-Watch have described the website as "dynamite", "tremendous" and even "inspirational". But the most touching testimonial came from a New York City firefighter, Justin G, who said: "Firefighting is my passion but Emini trading, with the help of your site, has changed my family's life for the better. My family can now afford the best medical care, best education and the satisfaction of changing other peoples lives for the better".
Part of the reason people keep coming back is one of the two most striking characteristics of the site, the use of videos of real-time Emini trading rather than simply static charts. It means the site can settle the age old question of show vs tell by doing both: users not only see what's been happening, but get an explanation of the factors behind the way the Emini market has moved.
The other main weapon in the Emini-Watch arsenal is the use of a system based on three non-correlated indicators. Instead of simply tracking price, Emini-Watch looks at buying and selling trading volume and changes in the size of individual trades - which can be a great insight into whether professionals or amateurs are driving the Emini market. The key to Emini-Watch's methodology, which combines these three factors in a unique way, is that these are non-correlated indicators. That means the system doesn't run the risk of reading too much into one specific data point by inadvertently measuring the same information in multiple ways.
Barry Taylor, a full-time Emini trader who set up and runs the website, has added extra depth to the site while still concentrating on its core purpose of daily commentary on the S&P500 Emini futures market. For example, other markets such as the Euro, Dollar Index, Crude Oil, US Treasuries and Gold get weekly coverage; and Taylor offers occasional commentaries on political and economic hot topics that are driving the markets or impacting traders.
"Emini-Watch may seem like it's all about numbers and money, but it's really about people who share a passion for Emini day trading. I'm grateful to the people behind every one of those million visits and their support inspires me to take the website even further." says Taylor.
Emini-Watch.com is a website dedicated to Emini trading. The site was launched in 2006 by Barry Taylor, a full-time Emini day trader, and has attracted over 4,000 subscribers and 500,000 visits in the last year.
