Good morning Traders!

I apologize if you receive this more than once, this is going out to various platforms

Today’s live trading room link is here http://compoundtrading1.clickmeeting.com/livetrading

Friday’s Premarket Newsletter will be handled live only in the room before open! And the Post Market Trading Results for Thursday will be published this weekend!

We are busy in the lab getting ready for this weekend’s announcements and all the new service upgrades that start Monday (per yesterday’s email);

– This weekend is the public announcement for 24 Hour Oil Room and subscriptions will be made open to public (a total of 50 only will be made available for the beta launch July 1, 2017 – at latest, it may be earlier).

– Monday the new live alert service starts for the Daytrading and Swing Trading Platforms launch. If you are a subscriber to either be sure you follow the alerts Twitter feed per Sartaj’s email yesterday.

– This weekend all algorithm charting is reset and upgraded to their next phase models in their development ($SPY, $VIX, $USOIL $WTI, $SILVER, $GOLD, $DXY) – exciting times for us! Between now and then you can expect the next phase versions of each to arrive in your inbox per yesterday’s email (copy below).

– This weekend the Swing Trading platform receives its upgrades (see notes per the swing trading newsletter reports at top of each newsletter) and they will be made available before Monday.

– Because all algorithms are being reset (as this premarket note is written) there will not be updates this morning (all are in their respective trading ranges so it worked out ok), but nonetheless, if you have any questions about the upgrades in process or the services, email or DM us anytime. A refreshed EPIC chart will be sent to members before open FYI.

So that’s all for now, join us in the room today if you can (it’s the last day of my two week challenge today) and this weekend will bring all the new upgrades and a new week next week!

Cheers!

Curtis

Good morning traders / Members.

A note about the upcoming changes in algorithm models and items such as 24 hour oil trading room.

We are going to ask our $SPY members for some grace on the reporting until this weekend.

This weekend EPIC the Oil Algo enters its next phase (in prep for 24 hour trading room the charting will be converted to also include futures and go on to coding) and all the other charting reports enter the next phase in their evolution of reporting.

Specific to $SPY, $SPY enters a more detailed charting phase (more resembling EPIC’s) and with that will bring considerably more report rotations weekly and considerably more detailed charting. Between now and then our techs are preparing the charts. So between now and Sunday (as long as there isn’t a considerable change in trading range) we will simply ask you to refer to the existing charting at the link below (when the viewer comes up hit the play button to bring charting up to date). When the next phase is released this weekend the charting will be available outside the viewer as EPIC’s are which will make them more useable and as I mentioned they will be considerably more detailed.

For now here is the current chart link and we are more than sure you will enjoy the next phase of $SPY reporting to be released this Sunday https://www.tradingview.com/chart/SPY/fmvbclRj-SPY/

Specific to $VIX, it is the only one of the six algorithm models that is not locked in (as it concerns the algorithm math – and frankly we are not sure whether it will ever become completely locked in), nonetheless, commencing this weekend our rotations will be more regular and the charting will be much more detailed (the charts will be primarily based on conventional charting – but more detailed than in past nonetheless).

Specific to $GOLD, $SILVER, $DXY; we will continue (for the most part) reporting to members off-site direct (you may have noticed we do not post these to the blog), however, as soon as the $SPY algorithm is brought up to it’s next standard of reporting (which will take approximately a month to completely build out) we will then start publishing $GOLD, $SILVER and $DXY regularly to the blog and their charting models will also at that point enter the next phase making them more like or detailed as the EPIC reports are.

And last, specific to the swing trading platform, there are changes there (the service is getting a live alert service over next few days and the reporting structure is being improved). The change details are detailed at top of each swing trade newsletter for members.

So in summary, all the algorithmic models are moving up a phase in reporting between now and July 1, 2017 and the details of such are above. This will of course come with a price increase as they are elevated but existing members are grandfathered without price increase as long as subscription remains continuous.

Oh, and on a final note, if you are going to be taking part in the 24 hour oil room, be sure to register over the next day or so – we are going to release subs to the public this Sunday at latest and we will be capping membership to fifty members while we are in the beta phase (which is expected to last approximately 90 days) to ensure quality and staff training time etc.

Any questions please let me know.

Good morning

We have important big news for our members (a quick memo before we officially tell the world over the next 48 hours the specifics):

– Well, we finally did it, we are moving on to the biggest advancement in our growth since we launched late last year. The 24 hour Oil Trading Room is launching at latest July 1, 2017 (it may be earlier, but no later). There will be limited subscriptions for the beta phase. Members are being informed prior to the public announcements so that those that do wish to take advantage of the initial discount to the beta members you can as of now subscribe to the service by visiting our shopping page and using promo code ——- (all lower case – PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THIS PROMO CODE TO THE PUBLIC – we want to give our members first opportunity to the limited codes). The regular price is 499.00 per month (which includes the newsletters and the room). With limited beta member discount 399.00. The first billing will occur immediately and the next Aug 1, 2017 with each monthly at locked in rate of 399.00 even as prices increase as long as you stay with your subscription without lapse. Considering the requests for this room to open, we are more than confident we will sell out the initial beta phase with ease. Specific to this announcement we will be running a press release over the news wires also.

The other advantage to the 24 hour oil trading room is that charting will be routinely update through-out the day and night, so there won’t be a wait to receive the new updates (along with our traders live trading of course).

– The swing trading service will be getting an alert service within 48 hours. Details to be announced. The existing swing trading members (before the official announcement) will receive the bundle (newsletters and live alerts) for the current newsletter only price. In other words the new alert service component will be free indefinitely for members as long as they subscribe without lapse (as will the existing newsletter price). Any new members will pay a bundle price (for both swing alerts and newsletter) or individual an individual price for each. Bottom line is that current members will automatically be grandfathered in to the service add-on at no extra cost.

– The day trading service will be getting a new alert service that will work for everyone globally and will be announced formally within 48 hours. We have had issue with various carriers globally and we have a permanent fix for that now finally.

– The SPY algorithm is and the Gold algorithms will be moving on to the next phase of development so their charting will become significantly more advanced and as with other services and our early adopters there will be no price increase as this is launched but new subscribers will have a higher subscription price. DXY, Sliver and VIX will be the next after SPY and Gold to move on to next phase algorithm charting.

More detail to follow over next 48 hours in member notices, press releases and public announcements.

Thanks

Curtis


Trading Freedom and Freedom Attained via Trading Needs You!

I Haven’t Got a Lot of Time (I chew off way too much ya ya eyes bigger… bla bla) But HERE IS MY PLEA. I’ll make it short.

This is Part Four of the “Freedom Traders” Series – How I Learned to Get Over the Wall and What May Help You.

There are links at the bottom of this post to Part 1 : My Personal Stock Trading Story. How I Blew up Two Accounts and Then Learned How to Trade, Part 2 : Trading Checklist – Rules I Follow Before Triggering, and Part 3: Now I’m Inspired!.A Struggling Trader That Inspired Change, Part 5 : Learn How to Trade Stocks (Build a Small Account) Following my Journey.

Introduction:

“in January of this year, Tuomas Sandholm and Noam Brown from Carnegie Mellon University developed a poker player called Libratus, which beat four of the world champion poker players, and not by just a little bit. They played 120,000 hands of poker, and Libratus ended up with $1.77 million in poker chips. This is a big deal, because it signals…” See: https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-artificial-intelligence-will-change-everything-1488856320

Now, before you turn me off, hear me out quick! BTW, I meant to write the “How to Write a Trading Plan” post next but this was eating me alive so I’ll do that next.

This is about a freedom about to be stolen from you (the freedom to successfully trade at a retail level – your trading freedom) and what can be done and how you can benefit. Yes, there’s an upside for your service.

And if nothing else, I’ll guarantee you’ll be a better trader (unless of course you’re super trader already).

Here’s my best foot forward to what the H this post is about.

The Uncle Sam poster. Yes, this is the best way to explain this post.

Look, when this poster propagated it was during a time that people stood for what was they believed to be right (freedom) – so much so they would die for it. The whole country (and even the whole free world) rallied behind it. Now, of course I’m not asking for that haha, but I am asking for like minded individuals (people that want a better future that may or may not see the problem on the near horizon) to stand up and get behind what we’re doing – if even it is in a small way AND even if it only means you receive the benefit of becoming a better trader as the minimum objective.

Compound, Trading, Wall Street, Disrupt

Compound Trading Wants You to Disrupt Wall Street!

Uncle Sam (initials U.S.) is a common national personification of the American government or the United States in general that, according to legend, came into use during the War of 1812 and was supposedly named for Samuel Wilson. The actual origin is obscure.[2] Since the early 19th century, Uncle Sam has been a popular symbol of American culture and a manifestation of patriotic emotion.[3] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncle_Sam

What’s The Big Deal? 

Look, I know I talk a lot about this… singularity and algorithms and stuff (math is one of the few things I’m good at) and I KNOW that most of you just want to trade better so you can achieve some level of freedom in a world that’s stacked against all of us common people. I get that. And so I apologize for my nerd post, but you can get what you want and I can feel like my life was worth something (more than just being a decent trader and money and so on). And you never know, you may actually take up a small portion of the cause in the process.

Here’s the big deal; right now this moment there are large rooms of scientists (mathematicians and computer programmers) designing algorithms and artificial intelligence to beat Wall Street. How do I know? Because I cracked the code. Don’t believe me? Fine, I don’t care actually – I wouldn’t believe me either. Seriously. But we have documented it and if nothing else you can’t argue that some have cracked Wall Street.

See:   http://www.ted.com/talks/jim_simons_a_rare_interview_with_the_mathematician_who_cracked_wall_street

Or this article that relates to the introduction of my blog piece:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-artificial-intelligence-will-change-everything-1488856320

You can’t argue that some have cracked Wall Street.

So What’s The Problem? 

The common person (retail trader) has always had the chips stacked against them on Wall Street. But that’s getting to be very, very real and nearing the point of completely unfair. I know, some of us can still beat it, but only the best human traders consistently beat Wall Street.

Why? Because there are high frequency trading algorithms and various other algo type trading systems that are revolutionizing trading.

And THE REAL PROBLEM is that it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that over the next ten years (at very most – more likely 3 -5 years) this will become unbeatable. Look, singularity isn’t far off and I’m telling you that there are algorithmic trading operations that completely destroy our ability to profit. Soon, very soon, mark my words they will be telling you on TV that YOU HAVE TO GET IA TO TRADE OR DIE.

What is IA? An intelligent assistant. In other words, what we do (what we are developing with our algorithmic models) – and I’m not asking you to subscribe to our algorithms (I would develop them whether we had even one subscriber). The traders on CNBC you watch are already talking about how they can’t do without their #AI now.

So IA (an intelligent assistant) is the first level of acceptance at the retail level, because the human trader is in control and the algorithm simply assists the trader. But there will be a time soon where those “assisted” traders will move to full automation because there is no way to beat the machine. It’s all a process of acceptance.

Why is IA (Intelligent Assisted Trading) or HFT (High Frequency Trading) a Threat to Me?

You will be beat and you will have to subscribe to the future. And it is coming right soon. Think of me when you have no choice. Now, please keep in mind this isn’t going to be required (IA) for long term investing any time soon. I am talking about trading (day trading and swing trading).

You will be beat and you will have to subscribe to the future.

Here’s a CNBC video on Human Assisted Intelligence for example:

http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000488817

So what’s the problem then? I’ll Just Subscribe to the Future

You may, or you may not. Right now, the IA technology is available and there are algorithmic modeling teams that produce incredible results (heck, our inaugural model EPIC has been insane successful), but YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO BUY THEM.

There is certainly a trend toward increasing automation among financial firms. Preqin, a company that provides financial industry data, reports that 40 percent of hedge funds created last year were “systematic,” meaning they rely on computer models for their decisions. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/600695/will-ai-powered-hedge-funds-outsmart-the-market/

You’ll be able to buy the moderately decent ones, but you won’t be able to buy the world class models. And even if you could, you couldn’t afford them. Do you know what these models are worth? Insane amounts. Some of the richest people in the world have become so over the last few years because of them and they my friends are sitting on islands they own, sitting in 60,000 square foot houses overlooking a bay with their mega yachts in view. Sounds like a Bond villain  – but true. Study it. It won’t be the common person that has them.

“I’ll Be Fine.'”

Sure, you’ll be fine as an investor and you’ll even be fine as a trader for a while. But you will as a trader be forced to subscribe to this future within 3 – 5 years or you won’t trade. That I can guarantee.

So What’s My Angle? Let Me Summarize Before This Post Gets Big.

IA and AI is coming. You will have to subscribe as a trader. I guarantee that.

We have published our work in modeling the algorithms over the last year for transparency. It would take you hours, but you could confirm that I am not a nut by reading our whole website and blog posts that we have in fact modeled what the machines are doing.

We have been challenged in various ways since starting this endeavor (trying to model what the AI firms are doing in the markets) and trust me it would have been easier to sell out. And I won’t explain how we could have sold out fast and easily and went to the beach.

My nature (you know the story about the toad and the scorpion), is the Robin Hood thing and I know it is corny, but it’s all about the common man for me. It’s all about looking at each other and jumping. I have a grade 8 education because I was bored in class, but I can calculate like nobody’s business. I’m an outlier, I get that. A nerd.

But I know math and I have done well in business for thirty years and everybody around me is screaming at me about how I’m so invested in this and not paying attention to my businesses (that they deem to be adequate).

But I am a common man that had to work very, very, very hard and I believe in and need as my nature the common man team thing. I am not a suit, I am not a Wall Streeter, I am not a corporate guy, and I am not a 9-5 type. I need by nature to stand for something and have to have my life to have been of some form of value. That’s just me (the scorpion and the toad).

So that brings us to now. Right now we at minimum have a trading platform that can benefit any learning trader and our clients will tell you that even advanced traders are learning and benefiting from our services. And because we’re already up and running I don’t need to sell you on it.

But there’s more (yes like the infomercials haha)…. we know how to model (crack the code) of the algorithms and we’ve proven it. Our mission is to democratize Wall Street. What does that mean? Make available to the common man what otherwise would not be attainable or available.

Make available to the common man what otherwise would not be attainable or available.

So What am I Asking For?

The vision I have for the future is tough for the common person. I see massive debt being moved to the middle and upper class in new and ingenious ways and we are allowing it and the elite getting richer. I see a difficult future for our kids and grandkids and their kids. I believe it is critical for this generation to get over the wall and I believe time is very short.

The wall to freedom (as it applies specifically to traders or aspiring traders) is the wall to predictable and consistent success so that our future generations can be given the opportunity to compete in a world that will get more and more elitist.

So I have a trading room that is already successful (when you consider the algorithm subscribers and swing trading subscribers) – successful in that we’ve got lift off and it’s a profitable endeavor already. The trading room is a little light yet and I would like to see more people in there but it is solid and has very good traders in it for newbies and experts alike and we are profitable.

So Why Would I Want More and What Do I Want?

I would like anyone that has a dream or a vision that relates at all in any way to what we are doing to get involved. We need good traders in the room, we need learning traders in the room. And yes I am saying we need subscribers to get beyond just a successful little trading enterprise. Let me give you an example.

The oil algorithm work we’ve worked with… EPIC the Oil Algo…. more than one million invested in less than seven months – in just time, forget the hard costs and various other costs. Algorithmic modeling, IA, AI, machine learning, big data – whatever you want to call it is massive.

So what we’ve done is we’ve secured early adopters to our offerings (the trade room, the algorithm charting newsletters and swing trading newsletters) to fixed subscription costs even as sub costs increase – and very soon the trajectory of those sub fess (to new users) will be parabolic – algorithms are expensive! Decent algorithms available are tens if not hundreds of thousands per month and our first algo is going to coding now and will be at that level very soon (EPIC is one of six and there are more in the works). And the institutional guys love it.

So what I am saying is that our work is costly and yes the everyday common person subscribing does bring that vision forward in a small (small in that it is bite sizes but adds up) but important way.

BUT MORE THAN THAT! We would love for others to get involved. We need learning traders to get over the wall to help others more than anything. The learning traders that succeed will be our best advocates when they become successful! But we need profitable traders too!

We need traders to get active in our room. We need traders that want to test our algorithms. We need traders that want to get involved in the marketing. Traders that want to help organize events. Traders that want to coach. Traders that want to document trades on video. Traders that will write blog posts and share our mission on social media and there will be so many more things that yes, WE NEED YOU FOR.

Why? Because we would really like to be the ones that make available to the common person world class algorithmic modeling so the playing field stays as fair as possible. And I personally would like to have lived a life of some value. Our middle class and even upper class is disappearing and keeping Wall Street a level playing field would at least offer a way for the common person to provide for their children and grandchildren.

That’s my sales pitch, my best foot forward – so if it at all meets your goals in even the smallest way… this is your call to action.

AND IF NOTHING ELSE – WE’RE A DAMN GOOD TRADING GROUP:)

And here’s my promise… I’ll do my best to stop trying to recruit ya’ll to the cause and focus on the trading – and hey, this Monday is the start of my two week double my account challenge so I’ll definitely not have time to sell y’all on our platform haha.

Also, I’ll do my best to get the “How to Write a Trading Plan” out sooner than later.

I Just Received an Email From a Struggling Trader That Has Inspired a Change. I’m Pumped. Here’s My Guarantee and Yours in Return to Get You in to the Freedom Traders Club.

This is Part Three of the “Freedom Traders” Series – How I Learned to Get Over the Wall and What May Help You.

There are links at the bottom of this post to Part 1 : My Personal Stock Trading Story. How I Blew up Two Accounts and Then Learned How to Trade and Part 2 : Trading Checklist – Rules I Follow Before Triggering.

Introduction:

“To win consistently, a trader has to have a plan (a system) – that contains rules, controls losses (risk) and keeps emotions checked in at the door.”

Okay, so something big happened to me today while working on my charting set-ups for the week. A struggling trader sent me this email;

“Hi Curt I am trading for five years now with little success.I have continued my research which has brought me to compound traders doorstep.I have a decent understanding of the markets but not to the levels needed to trade successfully week in week out.Can I make profits using your live trading room/alerts bundle while taking time to learn your methodology along the way.I am a hard working student who learns quickly.”

WOW, what an email. Something clicked in me. FIVE YEARS! Unbelievable tenacity! And limited results? That should not be so I thought. Okay, but I can relate, I have had my own struggle. So here was my response;

Hi ______

You put 3 months in to our room (if time allows) and if not review daily room videos and pre and post market newsletters and I’ll guarantee you will become a profitable trader. But, you would have to follow the rules. You follow the rules (indicators) and you don’t make money I’ll refund you personally. And… you’d have to send me every entry and exit so I could check that you’re following the rules and preferably send me a daily trade plan (showing how the rules line up with your trade plan). There’s a video from Thursday mid day market review coming out in next 24 hours that explains the rules (indicator set-ups) clearly to follow.

Curt

Update: Here’s the video as an example of indicators – chart set-ups (and our next post in the Freedom Traders series will go in depth on the specific indicator set-ups).

So What’s The Big Change? The Realization.

So I realized a problem in my approach. When we first started Compound Trading we knew that we had very sophisticated big data mad scientist math figured out and that we had in fact cracked Wall Street. Yes I know, I know… sounds nuts but we can prove it. Anyway, the point is that this “cracking the code” or better described as cracking what the big trading firms are doing to bring massive returns (the ones that are).

BUT! You first need to understand how to trade the fundamentals. Our mad science stuff does absolutely nothing for the learning trader! The discipline and the know-how (the chart set-ups, the indicators) are key for the learning trader. That’s what first gets the struggling trader over the wall!

So how am I going to pivot to that? Let me explain in short.

Here’s My Pivot… A New Commitment and Format

So all the mad science stuff will continue because frankly we have many large traders and the like that rely on that and that’s now my life’s work. But that doesn’t mean I can’t pivot in that I bring a focus to the learning trader and the fundamental indicators and chart set-ups that cause a trader to win.

So here’s what I am going to do going forward:

  • I will be doing premarket chart set-ups (reviewing charting indicators) at 9:00 AM every morning in the room.
  • I will be trying to get as many of the chart set-ups for the standard indicators I preach about in my premarket trading plan (can be tough because premarket moves fast). Just getting a premarket report out in time is very hard.
  • I will be doing a mid-day chart set-ups review in the room everyday between 12;00 – 1:00 EST. Very specifically looking at the indicators I talk about all the time and specific chart set-ups.
  • In my post market report I will carve out and focus on the chart set-ups also.

So in other words, I will start to focus clearly for the learning trader specifically on these in a very detailed way and document the whole process.

And should a struggling trader work with me on it, I’m even gong to guarantee results (of course the trader has to reciprocate some accountability).

Here’s My Guarantee and Yours in Return

I let the cat out of the bag above obviously when I shared the email, but here it is. Sign up for our trading room bundle and print this and post it on your wall above your computer.

My Personal Guarantee

You put 3 months in to our room (if time allows) and if not review daily room videos and pre and post market newsletters and I’ll guarantee you will become a profitable trader. But, you have to follow the rules. You follow the rules (indicators) and you don’t make money I’ll refund you personally. And… you’d have to send me every entry and exit so I could check that you’re following the rules and preferably send me a daily trade plan (showing how the rules line up with your trade plan).

To do this (follow-through with the plan) review these regularly (can be done anytime because we publish all reports and videos of everything):

  • Premarket chart set-ups (reviewing charting indicators) done at 9:00 AM every morning in the room.
  • Chart set-ups for the standard indicators in premarket trading plan (as may be made available).
  • Mid-day chart set-ups review that will be done in the room everyday between 12;00 – 1:00 EST. Very specifically looking at the indicators I talk about all the time and specific chart set-ups.
  • Post market report specific to chart set-ups.
  • Send me your entries and exits on email info@compoundtrading.com or by DM so I can review and preferably your trading plan (when you can) in advance of taking a trade for review.

That’s my guarantee to the new trading wanting to learn. It’s a huge commitment on my part and requires yours also!

So Sign-Up and Lets Get Busy

Here’s the link! And there’s a discount on the home page too that you can use (I think it brings price down to approximately 76.00 per month (or less if you register for longer terms)..

Live Trading Room Bundle

Message me anytime with your story, questions or additions to this checklist. I will update this list over time.

Peace and best.

This is Part Two of the “Freedom Traders” Series – How I Learned to Get Over the Wall and What May Help You.

There is a link at the bottom of this post to Part 1 : My Personal Stock Trading Story. How I Blew up Two Accounts and Then Learned How to Trade.

Summary Introduction:

This is about the freedom achieved when one learns how to trade stocks with consistent profit.

Learning to trade is tough, but there is a significant reward for the effort.

I have observed, in working with newer traders, that many randomly trade “what they like” without a system or rules. As such, I created a checklist that trader’s could use prior to executing trades..

To win consistently requires a proven system that provides more winning than losing over a series of trades. This is a trader’s edge.

To win consistently, a trader has to have a plan (a system) – that contains rules, controls losses (risk) and keeps emotions checked in at the door.

You, meet You:

If you are struggling to trade for consistent profit this post and your effort to follow a rules based methodology will cause you to look in the mirror.

Trading for consistent profit is a war against oneself. It is a war against our inner need to be free from rules and discipline. Successful trading is boring, it is disciplined and it isn’t remotely like a Friday night at the roulette table. Successful trading requires confidence in a system that is proven to return consistent results.

Successful trading requires a disciplined, devoted and tireless commitment to study and personal betterment. If you are not prepared to study, and I mean really study, you won’t make it. You will blow-up your account.

Personal Reflection – Recent Interactions:

I talk to literally hundreds of learning traders every month in one form or another (social media, email, private messages, coaching etc). I recently asked learning traders to send me their trading plans in advance of market open on a Monday morning.

Here are a few things I noticed in many responses;

Lack of study. Lack of implementation or Consideration Toward Standard Charting Indicators.

For example, I constantly talk about simple charts, keeping it simple and basic indicators. I do this for two reasons; one – I can get too complicated for my own trading primarily because of the type of work I do in algorithmic modeling. And two – I believe learning trader’s should first keep it simple.

Anyway, my point is that most replied to my call for trading plans with-out even considering the simplest indicators that I preach day in and day out in the trading room, in newsletters on videos and social media. And I thought to myself, my lord, how do I get this across?

Simple indicators like taking a daily chart and considering the moving averages or MACD were not considered in near all replies. Most replies were, “I like this stock and I don’t want to miss out”. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. I was completely floored. I couldn’t care less if I like a stock and I definitely won’t base a trade on possibly missing out.

All of these traders have had access for some time to detailed docs I produce toward the subject, such as our swing trading service newsletters, our premarket and post market reports and the near weekly charts I produce called Keep it Simple Stock Charting (not even considering the algorithmic modeling).

Below is a recent twenty minute video (a snippet taken from our live trading room) of indicators I follow when considering a trade. The video isn’t great (near bad actually) but you’ll get the point. I drive this home (indicators) over and over because they work!

Standard indicators will provide you with a simple edge and a simple process – a place to start. There are many different trading systems used in the markets, this is just one.

If you truly want to develop an edge (a process) that will get you winning more than losing (trading for profit), then learn the simple indicators and use a stop! That’s all that is initially required.

Trust me, if you need it, here it is (at least a start) in 20 minutes or less (we actually have a better video on indicators in charting reviews from last Thursday that I will post when it’s ready and update this article because the video below isn’t ideal as mentioned).

Of course it then (your personal trade process development) goes on for lifetime there forward, but I think you get my point. It isn’t that hard to stop your losses and GET OVER THE WALL to profitability.

So learn your simple chart indicators! Some examples are; moving averages, MACD, daily charts, price action, and maybe some others like the squeeze momentum I use and a Stochastic RSI. (Note: Video was updated)

A Trading Process and Trade Rules are Critical to Successful Trading – the Legends Agree.

Here are a few examples:

Martin S. Schwartz.

“I always laugh at people who say “I’ve never met a rich technician” I love that! Its such an arrogant, nonsensical response. I used fundamentals for 9 years and got rich as a technician.”

It is widely reported that Marty Schwartz lost money as a trader for ten years. And also widely reported that once he developed a more rules based approach he never looked back. Martin turned 5,000.00 in to 140,000.00 in one year and is one of the most well known trading legends to this day.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_S._Schwartz

Jesse Lauriston Livermore.

“Real movements do not end the day they start. It takes time to complete the end of a genuine movement.”

Jesse Livermore used a set of rules, one of which was to identify “real movements”, because there is profit in a real stock move. A real move – not a low float pop and drop.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesse_Lauriston_Livermore

Ed Seykota.

“Systems don’t need to be changed. The trick is for a trader to develop a system with which he is compatible”

“I would add that I consider myself and how I do things as a kind of system which, by definition, I always follow.”

“Systems trading is ultimately discretionary. The manager still has to decide how much risk to accept, which markets to play, and how aggressively to increase and decrease the trading base as a function of equity change.”

Ed Seykota, a commodities trader, had a conviction in Algorithmic Trading. He utilized the rules of technical analysis and it made him one of the greatest trading legends of all time. One of his trading accomplishments was that he turned $5000.00 in to $15 million over a twelve year period in one client account.

Seykota calls his trading process, the Trading Tribe Process. He describes his ideas and practices in his book The Trading Tribe (2005).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Seykota

George Soros.

“If investing is entertaining, if you’re having fun, you’re probably not making any money. Good investing is boring.” Soros on enjoyable investing.

George Soros: Most Influential Quotes | Investopedia http://www.investopedia.com/university/george-soros-biogrpahy/george-soros-most-influential-quotes.asp#ixzz4eIkDeCuQ

Okay, so we know the trading legends agree, you need a system and rules. So I have prepared a checklist for you to review before taking your next trade and before every trade here forward until you consistently win. If you have any that I have missed, do me a favor and send them or tweet them to me so I can update this checklist.

Some Rules in Trading. Checklist Prior to Entering a Trade.

Rule 1 – Take Responsibility for Your Success or Loss. 

“A losing trader can do little to transform himself into a winning trader. A losing trader is not going to want to transform himself. That’s the kind of thing winning traders do.”Ed Seykota.

I tell our trading room and newsletter subs, “the shortest distance between you and the door is to blame myself or another trader for your loss”. Our systems, analysis, models or anything we say or publish, or anyone tells you or publishes is not the reason for your loss.

You lost because you lost to yourself or you lost because no trading system is infallible. This is without a doubt my rule number one. If I blame my lack of success on anything or anyone I’m doomed as a trader.

Rule 2 – Cut Losses. Use a Stop. Never Allow Losses to Get Out of Hand.

“The trading rules I live by are: 1. Cut losses. 2. Ride winners. 3. Keep bets small. 4. Follow the rules without question. 5. Know when to break the rules.” Ed Seykota.

“Trade with a stop, and know it before you enter.” Jesse Livermore.

“The most important thing in making money is not letting your losses get out of hand.” Martin S. Schwartz

Live to see another day. One of the most critical ingredients to success as a trader is in how long you are around to learn. You can always re-enter and the cards never stop.

Rule 3 – Ride the Winners.

“Let profits run. Close trades that show a loss (good trades generally show profit right away).” Jesse Livermore.

This is my biggest challenge. Always ride your winners. And once you learn that, you can then “hammer down” on your winning trends. This is where real profit is.

Rule 4 – Keep your Bets Small.

Take an entry that is at very most 5% and preferably closer to 1 – 2% of your trading account, and then when it becomes a winning trend, add as you see fit and the indicators tell you to do so. And yes, I know that I will take much larger trades, but that’s because of a host of more advanced (or refined) rules not included in this post and that trade is not my whole portfolio – it is a large portion of a specific account.

Rule 5 – Learn Trend Trading. Understand Your Charts.

“In order of importance to me are: 1) the long term trend, 2) the current chart pattern, and 3) picking a good spot to buy or sell.”Ed Seykota.

“Trade using the pivotal points. (Learn how to spot the pivot point from which a new movement will emerge; read Find A Trend With The Partial Retrace.” Jesse Livermore.

I call this “chewing around the edges”. If you learn how to spot trends or trend reversals for long term trend plays then you have hit the mother load and this is where serious profit is and accounts get built up fast. Read about pivot points. This happens to be one of the primary methods of our algorithmic chart modeling and why our algorithms have been so successful. Pivot points are powerful indicators.

Here’s a post from Steve Burns on the subject of trend trading.

Here is one Golden Rule trade example of what can separate you from just winning or wealth building. You find this one set-up in the indicators and you will win and win and win and really win. Below is the tweet and if you go to that tweet the chart that shows the set-up.

“When price trends up and Stoch RSI trends down that’s when you HAMMER down! Especially on a daily. #RULE $GDX $GDXJ $NUGT $DUST $JNUG $JDST”

Rule 5. Stay away from Momentum Plays. Pops. Pumps. Chasing.

I play morning momentum stocks for a kick. I play small and I play them smart. This is not a place for new traders. DO NOT join a chat room that plays momentum stocks as a beginner. Learn the predictable fundamentals of trading and become successful at low risk trades first. Do this for at least a few years before you try and learn momentum daytrading market openers and low floats and the like.

Rule 6. Buy in a Bull Market, Short in a Bear Market.

“Trade with the trend. Buy in a bull market, short in a bear market.” Jesse LIvermore.

If the market is red, be careful with your long trades. Now, if you know how to play by the rules and read a chart then red days are the days to study and prepare your shopping list for long trades. Then when the markets turn green or confirm you then have your hit list ready. And do not start your trading career shorting. I know, I know there are GURU’s that will disagree, but I fundamentally believe the best short sellers are those that first have the basics of long swing trading and even daytrading mastered. That is a personal “opinion”.

Rule 7.  Trade with an Edge.

“Don’t trade when there aren’t clear opportunities.” Jesse Livermore.

Trading with an edge can be understanding your basic chart set-ups with moving averages, VWAP, MACD and others or can be with methods such as our algorithmic chart modeling work. Or, even with fundamentals or with news events and more. You have to understand what provides an edge.

I often refer to a simple edge traders can follow as PTPTRR. Price, trigger, power, trade, risk, reward. Trader’s that know how to win will automatically understand what I mean by each point in PTPTRR. The question is, do you? If not, study it out – study each part of that equation. Trading price provides what edge? What are triggers? What does he mean by power? What is risk – reward in trading? And so on. In a future post I will cover this simple formula in more detail.

Here is an example on trading price from Investopedia as Jesse Livermore traded price action;

“Price patterns, combined with volume analysis, were also used to determine if the trade would be kept open. Some of the criteria Jesse used to determine if he was in the right position were:

Increased volume on breakout.
The first few days after the break prices should move in the breakout direction
A normal reaction occurs where prices retrace somewhat against the trend, but volume is lower on retracements than it was in the trending direction.
As the normal reaction ends, volume increases once again in the direction of the trend.
Deviations from these patterns were warning signals and, if confirmed by price movements back through pivotal points, indicated that exited or unrealized profits should be taken. (For more read our Greatest Investors Tutorial.)”

Rule 8. Trade Strength.

“Trade the leading stocks in each sector; trade the strongest stocks in a bull market, or the weakest stocks in a bear market.” Jesse Livermore.

I almost always trade strength. Strength in price action, strength in sector, strength in timing, strength in volume, strength in trend, strength in momentum, strength in fundamentals, strength in news, strength in wash-out (fear) and on and on. Trade the strength that comes with inflections.

Rule 9. Trade with Chart Indicators.

Know your simple indicators. A profitable career can be made trading indicators only. We have proven in our work that simple indicators will return 50% or more a year with the instruments we trade (more on this later). But the point is learn your simple indicators.

We are posting You Tube videos more and more on this subject and plan to cover it intensely over the coming weeks in our newsletters and on various other media channels.

Some of the indicators to consider; moving averages, channels or trends, pivot points, chart history, support and resistance, Fibonacci levels, volume, power, risk – reward and more. When you know these you can then even move in to custom indicators (such as I do with trading view charting) and even chart bots and algorithmic models if you choose. But first learn the basics of charting and candles.

Rule 10. Trade Price Action. Price is King (and Queen). Know That The Market is Always Right.

“It can be very expensive to try to convince the markets you are right.” Ed Seykota.

Have a plan and when price action says different cut quick. Never assume the market is going to do what you think it will do. Now, I know in the algorithmic modeling work we do, we do talk about advanced near future charting etc, but even so, it is still harnessed in the realities of trading – that never changes.

Rule 11. Entries. Exits.

Know the zone for entries and exits. There are many rules within this one rule. Some examples are; enter long at support and cut fast if it fails, trail out long positions at resistance and add at support, enter long when the stochastic RSI is at the bottom (one of my favorites), go long when the MACD crosses up and short when it crosses down, know your time-frame, enter long at the bottom of the trending channel… and so many more.

Rule 12. Continuous Improvement. Journal for Success. Be Yourself. Don’t Follow.

Journal your trades. Keep track of your trades daily, take notes, learn from your errors and reproduce your successes. Study, study, study.

Develop your own system. Develop your own style. Be yourself. Don’t follow in anyone’s trades – learn, but don’t follow. Turn off the noise.

Study “Trade Risk Management Psychology” and “Emotional Intelligence”. We don’t have enough time here to go in to it.

Rule 13. Support Other Traders

Support the traders that shout out a win and try and pass on what you have learned to traders struggling. You will be surprised how this simple good will posture will help your trading. I won’t go in to detail and I’ll let you discover how this helps your trading on your own.

Rule 14. Check Your Attitude.

Never blame, never complain, never lack gratitude for the opportunity to learn. Be a good loser, dust off and move on. You will never be a profitable trader any other way.

Message me anytime with your story, questions or additions to this checklist. I will update this list over time.

Peace and best.

Trading Stocks for Freedom. How I Learned to Get Over the Wall and What May Help You.

A quick post on my stock trading story – the pain I experienced learning how to become a consistently profitable trader and how it may help you in your journey to being part of the “Freedom Traders” club.

Updated July 15, 2018. We have come a long way since this article was originally published. Our first machine trading Generation 1 Algorithm Models are being released at the end of July – it has been an amazing 18 month journey. The last six months we have locked in win rates over 90% (recorded and published live for transparency) and the next six months will be a process of rolling out those new machine models that nearly never lose. And yes, you will have to investigate our results for yourself. The report will be released before the next gen models are at the end of the month (or simply ask for a private tour of our time-stamped, recorded, live alerted trading alerts).

My Trading History in Brief.

I preach never give up w/o hesitation because no matter how long it takes, even if you start back at zero, when you get it, you are free.

I started trading when I was twenty-one (so almost thirty years ago) – things were a little different, but the same too. I worked for a large promoter on the markets.

At twenty-one years old I worked with a team of thirteen that engineered IPO’s from ground up then doing road shows presenting to the investor community the offering. So my learning curve was quick – the inner-mechanics of the markets was intense. But that doesn’t help you “get over the wall” to learning how to be a consistently profitable trader.

I went on to various businesses and over time invested those earnings in to the stock market. “Investing” for me is easy, and should be for anyone in my opinion. “Seeking Alpha” or beating alpha isn’t difficult. Investing is not what this post is about.

Then I went on to Swing Trading with success (you will find my trading set-ups / calls / alerts top shelf triple digit annual returns – all publicly posted, recorded, time-stamped for transparency) – so this isn’t even what I call “that difficult”, although it takes more skill / study than investing.

I then went on to daytrading and algorithmic modeling and more recently in 2018 machine trading with significant success ratio, again recorded, time-stamped, live alerted results nearing high 90% win rates depending on the financial instrument (more on that on our website).

And more recently I have looked at taking on options and shorting more – but that’s a whole other topic.

What Got Me Over the Wall to Freedom Trading.

WHERE MY INFLECTION POINT CAME was when I started trading algorithmic model trading. In other words, I went from a 60% win rate (variable with wild swings in performance) to between 60% to 97% (yes near 100% in most categories and few instruments now less than 80%. With oil related for example I have a near 97% hit win rate, again all publicly shared for transparency, recorded and time-stamped).

So what was it about getting in to algorithmic modeling that changed my win rate?

Simple, it became vivid that having a “process” that I can “rely on” over a series of trades “always” had me on the winning side (over-all). That overall winning (over a series of trades) then provides the “confidence” needed to execute trades without “emotion”.

So it isn’t the algo charting that did it – it was the understanding of technical set-ups (the structure of the chart representing the financial instrument) that did it and knowing that if I compromise the “process” I would lose.

So I now have a process I refer to as PTPTRR. Price, Trigger, Power, Trade, Risk, Reward. More on this in a future post.

I Blew Up Two Accounts – Bad! Very, Very Bad and VERY Painful.

I will tell you that late in my trading life – long after I was twenty-one and a noobie, long after I was investing and swing trading, I blew up two accounts and I blew them up bad at a very bad time in my life. Learning how to day-trade was excruciatingly painful – my wins were huge and my losses even bigger.

Read somewhere that becoming a successful Professional Trader is akin to becoming a Brain Surgeon … degree of difficulty is very high

When I blew up two accounts it was during a time in my life where I couldn’t lose, I couldn’t gamble the nest-egg I had – but I did. I literally gambled my whole life (and the financial well being of my family). I was all in (at least 90% all in on the first blow up), and it wasn’t long ago. I took 90% of our wealth and gambled and lost. THEN! To make matters worse I took the last 10% and did the same. True story. Very painful.

So I had two choices, learn how to really trade (vs. long swings and investing which I know isn’t the wealth building vehicle I was looking for) or put my tail between my legs and go back to normal life as a loser (a loser as far as I’m concerned – I’m stubborn).

So I figured it out. And since then, I have publicly traded every trade with transparency to possibly help others along on the journey. It’s a karma thing for me. And I know I know I get people asking, well why do you charge etc… but if you knew the overhead in our start-up you’d be like… oh I get it. We’re simply trying to fund the lift of a democratized platform that we think will be increasingly valuable for the average trader not just for learning on their journey but we see a future not far off that will leave many behind (the rise of the machines). So it’s a bit of a Robin Hood thing. I know, sounds corny but that’s what it is (a give-back thing is our motivation – a few computer scientists and entrepreneurs).

Five years (mark this tweet) u will not find a winning trader that has not embraced #AI #IA Machine Intelligent Assisted Trading. It’s already here. And I’m not talking about the cheap rip you off bots retail can buy. Retail can’t buy the real service. They won’t sell it to you.

A quick note here… we have given up on the idea of the general retail market helping to fund our platform and mission to bring world class machine trading to the everyday investor… we are still bringing it, in fact we haven’t missed a beat… but retail isn’t coming near funding the costs (at best 2% to date). So how are we funding it? Refer to our win rates, investigate our win rates, roll over those rocks and then you should know how we are funding it. At this point… we are nearly never losing. We’re funding 98% + of this roll-out. And yes, if you’re a retail trader that wants access I believe you should at least put a foot forward (have some skin in the game, even if it is a nominal amount of money). Why? It’s simple, if you don’t have at least some skin in the game it has zero value to you and you should have to reach a bit for it – for it to have any value. It’s a reciprocation thing. And don’t forget, 18 months ago I was exactly where any retail trader is today reading this, we reached, we believed and we’re doing it. We’re just asking for folks to reach a bit. Mark my words here now… when our results are published before the first generation of our new machine trading models are launched at the end of July – everyone, and I mean everyone that looks in to our verified record of alerting trades will know that we just do not lose now – very rare

So in summary (as far as this quick note update today is concerned), we still believe we have a mandate to bring this to the general public but we aren’t trying to push that anymore. If people want to get it they can, if they don’t that’s fine, we’ve let that part go. We are publishing at the end of the month our 2018 results to date and then we are going to absolutely conquer our trading environment over the next six months of 2018.

When 2018 is complete, there will be zero doubt that our transparent roll out and development of competing against the largest most sophisticated trading firms in the world has been a success and we will have been the only team to publicly and transparently share the start up process and spawning and development of that complete process to the general public. None of the other firms in our work have done that. Every single group like ours has either gone dark right from day one or shortly thereafter. This has never been available to the general public.

The last quick note here is that much of our current work (the machine trading generation models being introduced soon) is not transparent – the technology and coding we are using, but the trading alerts and subsequent success etc is shared and the process is shared and always will be transparent. The specific machine trading technology is proprietary and will remain so.

Okay back to the quick story…

So I will spare you the very painful details of the story – but I can say without a doubt short of losing a loved one or experiencing a divorce it was the most painful part of my life. Changed almost everything.

But learning how to trade with consistency, knowing that you are going to be on the winning side also can change everything — it is literally financial freedom (and with that many other freedoms), even if you lose it all and start at zero. It is something nobody can take away from you and it is yours for life and that equals freedom – maybe not today, but freedom is then inevitable. It is only time.

“Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.” – Nelson Mandela

How to Always be on the Winning Side in Trading – Getting over the Wall.

Below I will share a few pointers or rules that I used to get over the wall, but the truth is the topic is massive. Because it is a series of disciplines and everybody is at a different place in their learning, I will simply share a few key pointers below.

This week we have decided to start sharing every trade I execute via short video posted to YouTube and copied to our social media feeds on Twitter, StockTwits, Facebook, Google+ etc. Then learning traders can view these shortly after they occurred intra-day. We do record our complete trading room session also FYI and to see them live you need to be in the room. But if you are not for whatever reason you’ll be able to view the videos near real-time and they will be snippets (1 min to 5 min videos) that will explain every detail possible of the set-up, process during the trade and closing the trade out and why. This will be our method of helping other folks over that wall to freedom.

A Few Things That Helped Me Trade for Consistent Profit.

Number 1: You need a process that over a series of trades always puts you on the winning side.

You will never win every trade, and in fact I know traders that win less than they lose, but their winners are better than their losers.

For example, I have a swing trading process (see my most recent Swing Trading Quarterly P/L Review), I have a day trading process (see my most recent Day Trading Quarterly P/L Review), we have an Algorithmic Chart Modeling Trading Process (the Quarterly Report will be out soon – and it destroys my day-trading and swing trading results), and then I have my personal trading account trades that I don’t share because I use it for high risk representing a small percentage of my trades (I wouldn’t want to encourage others in that way or be responsible for that) and I also use it for learning (options and shorting and the like). BTW I can trade along any averagely decent options or short seller, but I don’t want to share it with the public until it is locked in and extremely predictable (again I don’t want to be responsible for the possible losses).

So get a process! How do you get a process? Well from folks like us, learning on your own, or various other ways I suppose. Be cautious that the service you pick suits your personality and goals, and be sure you investigate it well (I get notes daily about how much folks spend for services and feel guilty because it was either misguided or didn’t fit with their goals). Check their calls, back check all of their calls and see if they are successful. Be sure the calls are transparent with time stamps. Talk to their clients.

What is my process? My process is structured trading. I know the natural trading structure of each instrument I trade. This process is also my edge and frankly with-out this “tool” – structured trading, it will be very difficult for any trader in the near future to win. The machines are here and it will require a change in the mindset of traders. But here again, more on that in a future post.

But the bottom line remains the same, structured trading wins. I am updating this post today (July 15, 2018) while we I am reviewing our profit loss performance statements… the results from the last six months are stunning. We are releasing them soon (before the end of July when our next Generation Machine Trading Algorithm models are released). The point is…. you can’t compete with a trader that knows the natural historical trading structure of a financial instrument over all time frames (from 1 minute charting to weekly). It just isn’t possible to outperform that trader (the intelligently assisted trader #IA) – with the only exception being the machine. I can’t beat the machines. But I employ them to help me.

There is a reason our win rate is so high. Ask for a tour of our live swing trading or oil trading alert feeds (that are time stamped) – you will see win rates in the high 90% range over the last six months and we welcome folks to visit our free public chat room to ask around about our performance. We put it out in the open. Swing trading and oil trading are our best results being over 90% but our other instruments are also doing exceptionally well also – just not as high.

All that winning alert feed success can be directly attributed to a winning process, that we have near perfected that is in our instance what we call structured trading. Knowing the historical structure on all time frames of the financial instrument that we are trading (assisted by machine data and charting) provides us an edge over the majority of traders in the marketplace.

Number 2: You need risk management. You cannot be a consistently great trader without extreme discipline in risk management.

This post was motivated by the many replies I got on the weekend to a simple tweet (that became a series of tweets) about the pain one goes through to get up over the wall and to the side of freedom in trading. It actually touched me, seriously. The number of folks that messaged me about their stories blew me away. I was an emotional a wreck, and risk management (next to the importance of a “process” seemed to be a consistent theme).

Risk management is knowing where your risk reward lies before you enter a trade and adhering to that with-out fail. Now, I compromise this myself at times, primarily however because as conditions change I will change my threshold. But, you HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING before you start flexing on this rule. Study out risk management online because this is intended only as a brief post.

Number 3: Turn off the noise.

Did you know that many of the people telling you about great stock picks on television etc are paid to or have paid the broadcaster for the opportunity to do that? In one way or another there is a payment transfer, it doesn’t have to be in direct payment for service form either. I personally have been invited to a number of programs, I did one recently on premarket show with Benzinga see: PreMarket Prep for December 30: Wrapping up 2016 with our best call of the year, and since I haven’t done one (we have many that have asked – especially to look at our algorithms). I do have some others booked and will do them in the future, but I am being selective for this very reason.

So I won’t get in to all the details, but media (all things considered) should be at best a very light part of your study. You need to know your basic technical information and set-ups – the fundamentals aren’t as important because stops deal with that. Get your technical set-ups in order. Hence why we are going to start publishing every trade intra-day for traders.

Number 4: You need a good home – a trading coach, mentor, trading room or newsletter service (with coaching add-on).

The number of traders (in our service and out) that DM, email or message me in some form daily is becoming astronomical. And I do everything I can to respond to each and every one daily. I say this not to be like oh I am so important, I say this to say that I know with-out a doubt that the average learning trader needs a coach. Good coaches aren’t cheap but they will bring you return (or value) that nothing else can.

Short of that, get in to a good trading room or get a newsletter service set-up that will help you with technical set-ups. When people ask me what I do I tell them I do oil changes. Seriously I do. Why? Because it’s the same. You take your car in for an oil change because it is more efficient or it brings a value to you and that’s why you go. You’d rather spend 50.00 on the oil change than do it yourself. That’s what a newsletter service will do for you – for the 50.00 or 300.00 a month or whatever, it will provide you the free time to do other things while someone else is doing the grunt work compiling technical set-ups for you.

Number 5 – Emotional Intelligence.

What is emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence is simply the identification, tracking and management of your emotions. Emotional intelligence is much more important to your trading success than your IQ because what you do is inexorably connected to how you feel. In other words, emotions are organizing principles of our human system and they cannot be separated from us. In fact, they are, to a large degree, what makes us human as as such this is directly attached to your success or failure as a trader.

Again, because this post is simply a brief I encourage you to research emotional intelligence and what expert traders have to say about it. Study, study, study.

There it is… emotional intelligence. The nemesis I had to beat. Great tweet.

Number 6. Trading With Transparency

Last but not least, in fact I think for me was most important, was when I started trading with transparency. I started publishing trades in trading rooms in 2015 that I was investigating (when I was learning how to daytrade vs. swing trading and investing).

Then in 2016 I began posting my trades in and out to Twitter and Stocktwits and later in 2016 to our service.

Now I post my trades all over the place haha – I have to be cautious how I do that because we have subscribers, but I trade live in our room and post trades to social and our blog. I even post our trading room footage and a transcript daily to Youtube and our blog.

And this week Sartaj will be taking each of my trades and posting them intraday to Youtube and our social networks. This will cause me to have to be more verbal (I have a fear of public speaking) but I will learn. My goal is to broadcast everything I can think of in each trade fo that each video snippet will be very detailed for trader’s learning.

There are many more points or “rules” to trading (number 7 would have been stay away from morning momo stock plays haha).

In Closing

That is it for now. I will write more on this topic in the near future.

It is Sunday and we’re in the lab processing our weekly Swing Trading newsletter, running the charting algorithms for our six models in Oil, $SPY, $VIX, Gold, Silver and the US Dollar and I have to get ready for a big week in the trading room.

We are after all stepping it up a notch in that we are not only publishing the trading room video and transcript at the end of each day going forward – WE ARE PUBLISHING EVERY TRADE to our social networks right after they occur intra-day all day every day for now on! That is a big deal! Why? Because I believe it will be a primary way that traders desiring with all their will to get over the freedom wall, will in fact have another important tool in that endeavor! You can’t follow another’s trade but you can certainly crack open their method and make it yours!

Don’t follow other people’s trades. You don’t know their position size, time frame, stop loss, or exit strategy.

Message me anytime with your story or questions – I WOULD LOVE to hear the stories. I’m being serious here, I have never been that guy, but there is something about this, helping others get over that wall that has seriously inspired me to action.

Peace and best.

Curtis

Good morning traders!

In lieu of algorithmic model charting we opted to run simple charts in the lab last evening because the machines (as far as it applies to our work) may as well of shut down at around 4:30 EST yesterday. Why? Oil, black gold caused everything we model to skew. So there’s no reason to run updates until tonight, and it doesn’t hurt to take a simple look at our charts once in a while.

So I already posted most of this to my personal twitter feed but some of our members either don’t use Twitter or would prefer data in a file / blog format. On my Twitter feed are other simple charts and links to live charting FYI.

We’ll return to algorithmic modeling charts this evening for tomorrow’s open and in the meantime we’ve unlocked this for the general public also because there is obviously no proprietary data involved.

Have a great day and keep it simple until the market sorts this one out. Below are our simple charting thoughts.

Simple Chart Updates for Feb 8, 2017 for Compound Trading.

$VIX I know its the obvious, but may want to long at the green and short at the red. $TVIX $UVXY $VIX $VXX

 

Hope that helps you center in your trades – at least for our coverage!

Cheers!

Forward:

Although I endeavor to personally reach out to every tweet, email, DM and more, the mail I receive being connected with going on tens of thousands of folks in our online trading community with all the different forms of social media and our the recent success of our trading services launch is challenging me. And, I’m in our trading room eight hours a day and in our algorithmic chart modeling lab through the night:) Time – there isn’t enough time to speak to everyone in the most timely fashion so I needed to find a way to answer everyone’s questions in the most efficient and personalized manner possible. 

So I decided to do three things to address this; first I have put off further media interviews until our staffing is built up to handle the growth (I did a recent morning show on Benzinga you can find here but doing those programs causes an influx of subscribers – not that that is bad, it is just that we need to manage the upswing properly), and two, I am going to write one article per week (per below) that covers most of the question topics I’ve received the previous week and, three I am going to do weekly webinars that explain how to use our algorithmic charting, swing trade service and trade room to both members and the general public asking questions.

You can find our most recent memo to members about the weekly webinars here of which a schedule will be announced soon (we will do a webinar for each algorithm charting, swing trading and trading room weekly). Below is my first weekly blog article that will answer many questions I receive daily.

Thank you for the continued positive mojo and support in our work everyone!

The Only Stock Trading Indicator Returning 100% or More a Year Consistently. Guaranteed, And I Have Proof.

Fancy that! I have proof. Yup, but it will take a bit of time to explain, do your best to bear with me. But first lets be sure only those that should be reading this actually are…

If you are not in search of the most predictable method of return available as a trader/ investor then do not continue, it will be a horrid waste of your time.

If you are in the camp that believes there is no special “edge” available in today’s world for traders or investors then do not continue. I don’t have time to argue with you or time to convince anyone.

I am a thirty-two year entrepreneur that has a group of family businesses, an inventor, an innovator, a father, a husband, I am owned by a bulldog, that needs desperately to find a healthy balance (it is 4 am and I am writing this) and the list literally goes on – so I know life is short and I don’t need to waste anyone’s time. Every second is precious.

But I can guarantee with-out a doubt if you continue, you will discover there is no other indicator in the stock market that achieves a higher return. None – it is not possible.

At least not possible yet (what comes after this period of time in stock market history is actually scary and I’m not going there in this article).

Oh, and by the way, this article is titled Chapter 1 because this subject matter is huge (don’t fear – I promise to cover the meat of the point in this post though so you don’t have to read a book to get it). But I titled it Chapter 1 symbolically because I am going to write a series of articles (that get more in depth) and then consolidate all my banter, reflections and rants on the subject in to a book.

Yup, I am actually going to write a book. Why? First because this subject matter is not shared with the general public, and second because it is in depth and folks need to know how to use this information properly (we have members that need to know and so on).

So yes, the elite in my discipline (specifically in my specialized area of algorithmic modeling – “black box”), hold this close to their chest and I’m just the kind of guy that thinks it should be shared:) I have always have been that way, I always will be that way.

Who Should Take the Time to Investigate This Outrageous Claim?

This is for members of our stock charting newsletters, swing trading newsletters, coaching students and members of our trade room. It is also for anyone in the general public that has interest.

More specifically, this is for anyone earnestly searching for a disciplined way to consistently achieve a fantastic return on their investment, without significant risk.

But you have got to want that. Everyone I talk to say they trade or invest for the purpose of profit, but many aren’t honest with themselves – there are many reasons people are involved with trading.

What I am going to share with you is boring (it is scientific in nature but I will keep it as simple to digest as possible), it is not sexy, and it requires you to lose a part of yourself – the “I” part.

There is no other way, you cannot “see” it, you can’t embrace and use it and you certainly can’t be disciplined enough to open the “black box” if you can’t lose the “I” in trading.

So lets confirm and get on with it!

1. Are you here in search of the highest possible attainable and consistent profit as a trader? And,

2. Are you ready to lose the number one reason keeping you from attaining the highest possible return available in the stock market? Specifically here I am referring to the fact that you must be ready to lose the “I” in your trading and investing – put another way, you must be ready to lose your “ego”. And trust me, I am an expert on the topic.

If you are thinking, “sure I’ll consider that”, then continue reading. If not, click that little x at the top right corner of your screen.

Lets get to the point then and not waste your time. What is it?

Okay, so I’ll just tell you right from the get-go exactly what I am talking about, then folks that wish to discount it can get on with their day and/or they can file me in the “nutbar” category.

Here is the answer:

Probability is the only stock market indicator that matters anymore. That’s it? That’s your big secret? It’s just that simple is it? 100% or more per year?

Yes, emphatically the answer is YES. The only stock market indicators that matter anymore are probabilities. “It” is really a “they” and not an “it” – they are plural. “They” – the probabilities, are the only stock market indicators that “matter” – IF YOU ARE TRADING OR INVESTING FOR CONSISTENT PROFIT.

In my observation it is so simple that most miss it. But really, truth be told, the primary reason we miss this is our “ego”.

Having to be right about a stock or the market blinds us and this cannot be used successfully without humility. Omg really? Yes, sorry, you have to find humility or you will fail – also guaranteed.

And the last primary reason many investors and traders miss this is to be good at executing trades in the discipline of “probabilities”, which at its core is a very specialized area of algorithmic chart modeling discipline that we refer to as the “black box”, is because it is very scientific and it requires massive resources to compile hoards of historical data.

It is a massive undertaking. And that is why many traders can’t see it, use it, embrace it, or even know that there is a method of trading and investing that can easily return over 100% per year.

Even many large hedge funds do not have a “black box”, have you noticed the recent crash of many funds? More importantly, have you noticed the select few “funds” achieving returns never before witnessed in history? How is that possible? Have you noticed the Fed try and limit commodity algorithmic trading? I know how and why and I will explain.

Ask yourself, do you invest / trade for some reason other than consistent high profit?

What? I thought we’re all here for the profit!

No, actually you are not all here for profit. If you are trading for any other reason than returning a consistent, predictable and unusually high rate of return, then this article is not for you.

Those that are not trading for profit should leave now. And yes, I know I already covered this point above, but it’s so important (the most important part of this actually) that I thought I best be really clear and repeat myself.

I get it we’re all different, and for some the stock market and investing your hard earned money is more about other things It may be your joy of researching companies, the rush of those fantastic momentum penny stocks, maye you just enjoy charting and plotting, you could be a degenerate gambler or maybe you are one of the romantics and you are simply in love with the story (think Tesla). In my case (which is a common condition), you may just have to be “right” about the market and what it is going to do next (have you noticed anyone like that on Wall Street?).

If any of the above reasons are the primary “why” in your trading or investing, then “probabilities” are not the only indicators that matter anymore. But at my age, and where I am at in life, return on investment is paramount.

Still here?

Then YOU my friend are trading for a consistent profit and YOU are searching for an ROI that cannot be beat. If this is the case, then I can assure you once again without a doubt, with one million percent guaranteed certainty, that “probabilities” stand alone in a class with no other – they exist in a totally different solar system.

In fact, probabilities return a profit no other method of trading or investing can return. Not even close.

Okay, you got me this far, start laying out some proof and clarity because I’m busy here.

Sure, lets do that.

The Proof – Lets Start With My Personal Experience

Here’s how this all started. As I stated I am an entrepreneur of thirty two years and an investor. I have invested my whole life. We have family businesses, the ones that most apply here are web development and a company that provides services to the oil industry. Why is this important? I trade oil related securities for example and I have a business that services the oil industry and I have a company that that employs software engineers.

In short, I noticed (that our software engineers confirmed) that trading in most commodities and currencies seemed to be somewhat predictable, and then I looked at many of the larger company stocks. The more I looked and the more I involved our software engineers in the process the clearer it became that the world stock markets have changed, and they have changed dramatically. Yes the machines are in the markets.

Recently I was watching CNBC and Cramer was telling folks not to trade (to invest only) because it was not possible to beat the machines – well he’s partially, or mostly right. He’s a tad ahead of the curve there, but he’s got the right idea.

The machines are in it, and if you are investing or trading you should be equipped to deal with that and more preferably take advantage of that.

So to get back to my short story about how I this started, we started to investigate. Now, appreciate that our digital enterprise / software engineering side of my background allows for me to investigate things in a way perhaps most wouldn’t be able to accomplish. In short, we confirmed that not only are the machines in it, but specifically in that category there are entities that conquer and there are entities that like to think they do. Like with anything else, few are the cream.

What is undeniable however, is that the trading groups that possess a “block box” that works are achieving returns never seen in history (algorithmic modeling) – they are literally “cracking Wall Street” see Ted Talk video here, and those groups (or hedge funds) that do not possess a formidable “black box” have been hitting the wall at an alarming pace.

I wrote an article recently attempting to explain in short our algorithmic stock chart modeling process you can find here.

So to keep this really short and get right to the point, we started building algorithmic models in mid 2016 for the stock market.

And how have the results been? Well, the truth is the majority of the models are running model test trading accounts that are seeing returns 100% – 1000% per annum (at current rate). Very consistently they are achieving very predictable trades.

We have shared some of the work we are involved in online and to our trading room and various newsletter subscribers to be sure there is an evidenced trail of disclosure so our work cannot be called in to disrepute.

And here’s what is really important, unlike many of the run of the mill type trading rooms that make all kinds of calls and simply publish or brag about the ones that come true (and I’m not knocking them, I’m just pointing out that we are operating in a different world) – we publish everything (specific to the equities we have made public – there are more we are working with of course in the lab). But my point is we are extremely transparent in our approach. So we don’t make endless calls about this stock is going to zoom high or whatever, but the calls we do make we have a near 100% success rate and our algorithmic chart modeling tests for the most part near 90% correct. So to be more specific, an everyday trader can use our work with various equities, indices, commodities and currencies to achieve a win rate of up to 93% (depending on the model).

Just a snippet of some highlights since we started building algorithmic models for the stock market – all publicly called in advance and published;

  • We called the Trump win many months in advance (algorithm in development).
  • We called Brexit many weeks in advance (algorithm in development).
  • We predicted all time market highs would occur post election after Trump win months in advance (algorithm in development).
  • Our Gold algorithm (Rosie the Gold Algo) called the most recent bottom in Gold almost to the cent months in advance when not a sole on the internet or in the media was bearish and everyone was bullish. It’s one thing to say its going to go down, its another thing to give an exact penny months in advance. I myself didn’t believe it and missed the turn but many of our subscribers have made considerable profit from this and more examples.
  • Our Silver algorithm (SuperNova Silver) called the bottom much like with Gold with price, weeks in advance.
  • Our Oil algorithm (EPIC the Oil Algo) which is our inaugural algorithmic charting model last summer called the turn in oil to the penny and oil hasn’t stopped its rally since. Epic to this day calls for our members every Sunday the price targets for oil for three exact times every week and is hitting 91.1% accuracy.
  • Our US Dollar algorithm called the break out in the US Dollar and our other two algorithms we are more recently working with being $SPY and $VIX are too early in development to predict.
  • And finally our Swing Newsletter as had astronomical success and returns – out of this world.

And those are a small snippet of the success behind the development of the algorithms.

In a post soon I will compile all the letters of thanks from all our members and people in the social media and internet community that continue to thank us many times a day for the success they are experiencing. And I know why, because once a trader finds a predictable methodology to work with it is very freeing. It provides hope of a better way and a better future. I get that and I hold that with great respect.

So how does this help the everyday trader or investor?

Well I kind of discussed this quick in the last section there, but I will quickly comment on what I think are a few important points for folks that are searching for a way to win in these markets.

First of all, these are not high frequency algos or automated bot algos. We are data mining historical data on specific charts going back sixty months establishing which classic indicators provide the highest probability of success and then representing those results on a classic chart for traders to utilize their trading.

Let me give you some examples of the work we are doing with specific securities, commodities and currency….

Epic the Oil Algorithm is an example. If you look at an Epic Oil Algo chart you will notice there are targets for specific times on specific days. This is one way that we represent our findings. These specific targets hit in over 90% of instances – specific time of day, day of week, specific price! With Gold and Silver we have posted the algorithmic trading quadrants, important algorithm levels and called the turns in trend weeks or months in advance. These are just some of the ways we represent our findings on the charting we provide members.

Here is an example of an Epic the Algo chart:

Crude, Oil, EPIC, Algo, Chart

Crude algo intra work sheet 537 AM Feb 3 FX $USOIL $WTIC #OIL $CL_F CL $USO $UCO $SCO $UWT $DWT #OOTT

With the US Dollar $DXY we are releasing all the algorithm charting details before markets open on Monday Feb 6, 2017 and the other two we are working with are the $VIX and $SPY, which are admittedly in their early stages. And we are working on many more for release in 2017.

So the indicators we are providing members are used in a similar fashion and way they are used to using indicators such as VWAP, MACD, moving averages and many more.

Our swing trading has been one of the better successes.

To date our we are publishing swing recommendations for our members of ten to twenty securities from penny stocks to companies such as Amazon and Google. Here again, there is a significant upgrade to the charting information scheduled for Feb 6, 2017 in premarket to our members. But all in all this has been exceptionally successful – the algorithmic modeling for individual securities representing companies has been beyond our expectation.

The other way we can assist the average trader or investor is in our daily trading room. We run live broadcast explaining our algorithmic model charting and step by step we visually walk through the charting live. So it is a very intimate experience for our members.

My best advice is to visit our blog and review the newsletters our members receive in the morning, more specifically take a look at Epic the Oil Algo, this will give you the best idea of what the charting looks like. Or visit the feeds of our algos and click on any of the posts.

The algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here: $WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index).

We are working on six publicly right now and all six are going through a major upgrade over the next week – we are really upping their game.

Here is an excerpt from the most recent memo we sent our members, it is a list of indicators we endeavor to provide our members for trading;

  • Algorithmic Chart Models Completing. This weekend we will be completing the last of what we consider Phase I of our algorithmic models. Phase I is defined as completing algorithmic chart models (for our traders to use on a traditional stock chart as an edge) to include all the important applicable levels for both classic charting and algorithmic chart modeling such as;
    • Classic indicator charting;
      • Fibonacci levels,
      • Horizontal trend-lines (support and resistance from various time cycles),
      • Diagonal trend-lines (support and resistance from various time cycles),
      • Swing trading range (margins of highest probability),
      • Various other classic indicators such as moving averages, MACD and more as applicable and most important to the specific equity charting.
    • Algorithmic chart modeling;
      • Alpha algo targets (specific time and price – see EPIC the Oil Algo for examples),
      • Alpha algo diagonal trend-lines (support and resistance),
      • Algo diagonal trend-lines based on Fibonacci modeling,
      • Algorithm time/price cycles (terminations),
      • Algorithm trading quadrants (related to time/price cycles and historical trading),
      • And more (all those fun indicators we are processing historical data on and representing on charts for our traders to use as an edge).

Our issue isn’t that we have successful models, our issues are how to take all that data in a timely way as an upstart and deliver that to our members. And we are working on four times as many models for currency, commodities and equities than we show publicly – so there is a lot going on to say the least.

There are lots of successful trading rooms and services – what makes this different?

Sure, there are many, many ways to win in the market – literally hundreds. But there are very few trading platforms, charting services or hedge funds that come close to not only the ROI or algorithmic modeling but more importantly the consistency.

The machines in the marketplace and the successful trading groups (they are not all successful) that are running black box algorithmic models are achieving astronomically greater success than market participants ever have.

Look, you can sign up for the guy that nails morning momo stocks, the guy that trades low floaters and sells twenty minutes to a day later, sign on to many fantastic charting services, or even those that can tell what is likely to affect an equity given the stars.

I get it, I know about most and have looked at them in great detail. In fact, I personally know many of them. But those are outliers in most instances and if not they are classic services.

The world of markets is changing, and they are changing fast. The algorithmic modeling trading groups are beating the outliers and the classic charting services many times over. And there is a reason, the machines are in the game and they are driving the market. Those that understand this and position themselves in such a way to profit from it achieve returns the others simply cannot. It isn’t possible anymore to compete with it and it will become increasingly more difficult.

Think of it this way, when a trader is using MACD or VWAP, a moving average, that is fine, but why not use the best of the classic indicators (that have proven to best perform with that specific equity, currency or commodity) at any given time. And even better yet, if the algorithmic model can provide a future forward indicator (such as with EPIC’s time and price targets each week) then even better yet!

It’s this simple, successful algorithmic modeling takes the best of the best indicators, mines their historical data, gives each a different weight in accordance to their historical success and serves that up to either an automated method or to a trader to then make his or her own decisions.

The algorithmic models that do not do this fail. The ones that do this succeed. The question then becomes why would some larger trading groups, banks or hedge funds not follow the successful route and implement a model that fails? For the same reason a trader won’t – ego.

Not only is it not possible to achieve the results the best black box trading groups are achieving (with-out using their methods), it will get progressively more and more difficult (sure, there will still be those niche GURU outliers – there always will be, but what advantage does that provide the individual investor or trader?)

It has changed manifold over the last eighteen months and the next eighteen months will separate the haves and have nots in the market and at that point this will be so obvious everyone in the market will finally talk about around the dinner table (so to speak). Again, just look to how the Fed wants to restrict the black box trading groups in commodities – they say it is due to risk, but that isn’t the reason. And how are they ever going to do that?

Let me give you one more quick example, have you seen in recent news the four professional poker players that are trying to beat the algorithm in a tournament? Read this article about how an algorithm recently brutally beat four professional players and tell me humans can beat algorithmic modeling.

And finally, don’t believe those silly commentators that say all algorithmic modeling is doomed to blow up. That is simply poppy cock driven via fear, ego or ignorance. High frequency is high frequency, meaning they can shut a trade down faster than you and I can think. And if it isn’t high frequency (as with our work) and the trader is making the final decision, well then you get the point. It doesn’t take a lot of research to find out there are firms blowing away results that have ever been thought of as possible.

Here’s an article to give you an idea of what is really going on out there, and trust me, what you are able to find in your research is only the scraping residue of the scraps of what is really happening.

The fabled fund, known for its intense secrecy, has produced about $55 billion in profit over the last 28 years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, making it about $10 billion more profitable than funds run by billionaires Ray Dalio and George Soros. What’s more, it did so in a shorter time and with fewer assets under management. The fund almost never loses money. Its biggest drawdown in one five-year period was half a percent.

Well that seems like a good start to my book. Thanks for taking time out of your life to be a part of our story!

If there is anything I can do to help you in your success please let me know!

In upcoming weekly articles I am going to cover “The Death of the Stock Trader” and “How to Use our Algorithmic Chart Modeling at Home” and be sure to catch our upcoming – yet to be announced informational webinars next weekend! We will be covering how to use all of our algorithmic charts at home, our swing trading and how algorithms have supercharged our member success and how to use our charting in our trading room.

Best of success!
