RE: Charting Re-balance Edits, Complimentary Publications, Email Distribution Lists

Good morning,

So when we opened the algorithm chart model files this morning, many (near all) shifted again and have to be reset. We’re working on that right now. This has to be completed for all charts before reports can be processed (because of course the chart time cycles and pricing affects reports).

This does occur on holidays with Trading View. Different holidays to different degree. Thanksgiving has been the worst we have experienced in the last year and this may have something to do with the half day – I am not sure.

Anyway, the shift in the charts this morning was less than yesterday so we expect today’s edits to be all that is needed and then we can process full reports. This may mean that reports are not out until tomorrow / b4 market open Thur and charts in completion would be out today / tonight at various points b4 market open tomorrow.

I apologize for the delay. I will ask Sartaj if he can credit some sub time for the gap in service.

It would be nice if we had another chart provider that didn’t have this issue surrounding holidays but Trading View is our only option (for our tech requirements). Perhaps in near future we can work with them toward a solution.

When you open the charts, to get past the viewer part to the live chart click on the share button bottom right and then “make it mine”. When in the chart if you only want the chart and not the indicators at the bottom double click on the chart and the bottom indicators will be removed.

So bottom line is that the charts will all be out today and the reports at latest tomorrow. And yes, in future surrounding holidays (at least until we find a solution) just know in advance this does occur.

Also, we are sending complimentary issues to members for various charting between now and Christmas (if you are wondering why you are receiving various updates).

And finally, I apologize if you are getting more than one email for an update (such as this memo), that means you are on more than one distribution list. This also we need to sort solutions for going forward.

Any questions let me know.

Thanks

Curt


Good evening all,

This is the back stretch of the final lap in our first year startup. Between now and Jan 1 we are completing and polishing up all our algorithm models and swing reporting to present as finished products in advance of coding. Below are some details with respect to this endeavor.

– The oil room will be open when futures begin trading. If you missed it, we are not alerting reboots every 20 hours on Twitter each time the oil room opens. We want to keep that feed as close to alerts only as possible.

– The seven algorithmic model reports and swing will be processed after futures open and before regular market open tomorrow. This will give us an opportunity to reset charts as required to Trading View rebalance – especially after the holiday week. Bitcoin will likely be the last published as trade is very active and I would like to see it settle a bit in to the new week before publishing.

– Any reporting that is not out by market open Monday will be out before market open Tuesday – but the bulk of any important reports will be out before market open Monday.

– The algorithm chart model and swing trading reports as of this week will start to represent buy / sell triggers. The buy sell trigger charting will be built in to the reports more and more as we near Jan 2018 simply because our coding of models will require them anyway. So in other words, what you see this week will not be what they will represent when fully updated going in to Jan 2018 – but it will be a good start.

– Any comments you have toward our chart models that you think would help us better assist our members and / or better represent data to our software engineers in 2018 for coding purposes please let us know.

– The Oil, Gold, Swing models are furthest along at this point, with Bitcoin close behind. The VIX, DXY and Silver models will take some time to build out – but we intend to have them done by Jan at latest FYI.

As always, thanks for supporting our start up as early adopters! Could not have done it without you.

Have a great week.

Curt

PS There are price increases coming in Jan after all the models are complete and prior to coding. There will also be increases at various milestones as the models are coded – for those that do not know, our early adopters will not see a price increase (as long as their subscription doesn’t lapse). I thought I’d mention that because a few folks have recently asked about that.


Morning all,

We’re about 60 days away from completing our first year – the start up. I thought I’d give you a quick update.

We just finished the code break on Bitcoin… it’s done, done, done. Finished. It was a process. But it is now done. The existing newsletters have excellent model(s) and those will continue from Reed’s desk. This model (the one we just completed) is a black box model… and we aren’t sure yet if and whether it will be shared. We’ll keep you up to date.

Now that we are done that model… we can clean up the rest of our models, newsletters etc… shine everything up for the completion of our start up year. Get the reports out on time… get the alerts out regular etc. I know I’ve been promising since we started ten months ago that we’d get caught up… I know. But in truth the process of breaking the code on these models is…. well… it takes a lot of a person to do it. Anyway…. as of this weekend we start polishing up everything so they get on regular rotation properly. If there’s any concern with value or delays or anything just contact Sartaj direct for discussion.

In terms of pricing and grandfathering… yes… our grandfather prices will always remain intact. No price raise for legacy clients. Period. When everything is shined up and presented to public and on regular rotation…. as we near the new year (the completion of our start-up) we will raise some pricing going forward (for new folks). They’ll be getting a polished version on regular rotation etc etc so they should pay for that.

Sartaj will be doing a promo going in to the turn of the completion of our first year too fyi… kind of a last call as we close out our first year.

Next year, 2018 we start coding our models for machine trading and intelligent assisted trading. Bitcoin will be going to coding first by the end of January, and then EPIC for Oil and so on.

Our private capital fund is now completing its regulatory requirements for various platforms in various jurisdictions and will also be in growth mode in 2018.

I have had much discussion with stakeholders about my role going forward as it relates to the trading rooms / reporting etc etc… I’ll be around and trading and available for legacy members (those that start in first year).

I really appreciate all the support we got through this start up. Much grace has been extended and many of you have really got behind our mission and for that I am truly grateful.

Thanks much! Peace and best.

Curt

 

 


Morning all,

Now that internet in the new location is perfect, we are getting caught up.

This evening trading room post market reports will be rolling again, Gold algo second phase launched and SPY second phase updated.

That will bring us pretty much up to date with some minor misc clean up outstanding.

Going forward: Quarterly PLs for Swing, Daytrading, and Algo trading are on deck, swing newsletters are getting an overhaul very soon, Silver algo second phase launch within fourteen days and daily oil trading room post market reports about two – three weeks out.

Thanks again for the rope extended in the transition.

Curt


Morning all!

I’m trying to keep you all in the loop because I get various questions and can’t remember who needs to know what day to day – so these quick memos help me keep everything moving forward in a clear way.

And to think I will have to do this all over again in a few months hahaha (the travel set up thing – but I will be an expert by then).

Buzz in Headset

I spent the night tearing down the office set up and re-wiring and resetting everything. Hopefully that gets rid of the buzz in the headset. I tested it and it seemed fine but it is intermittent so we’ll see. If that doesn’t get rid of it tonight after market I’ll head over to local computer store and get a different grounding power bar and look at possibly new head sets. And if all that doesn’t work I’ll look around the area of my house and see if there’s nearby equipment or something that may cause interference.

Reporting

So now I can get busy on catching up all the reporting (it will likely take until the end of Sunday to be completely caught up on all areas of our reporting).

Reading Memos / My Obligation

I responded to a number of DM’s and emails last night. One thing I’d like you to keep in mind is that when you ask me questions my options are to tell you what I think you want to hear or tell you what I think will help you make money. The latter is rarely popular with newer members, but it is my personal obligation. So don’t take it personal and if you think I take it personal I don’t – the only thing I take personal is making you money.

The New Member Experience

I’ve noticed that newer members come in very anxious, then they sort of stop and look around after a while and go “this is weird everyone is so calm” and then after a while “hey they actually win maybe there’s a reason they’re calm” and then “hey they have a process maybe I should try it” and then I get the messages “CURT! you wouldn’t believe it I AM MAKING MONEY! HOLY SH*T THANK YOU!” Seriously, it happens all the time – every day.

Why? Because the 99% truly do give the 1% their money on the markets.

The whole system is rigged in the way that it feeds back to the retail trading community what it wants to hear not what it should hear. Why? Because it sells.

I won’t go off on how it all works, but that is how it works. I don’t and wont ever treat my relationship with my members that way. I can’t do it. So when you talk to me you get straight goods. I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what your problems are, I don’t care how good you are. I only care about whether you are taking what we know to be a process(es) that makes you money and learning it (them) and whether you are banking. That’s my job. To make you money. And that’s only done if you read my f’ing memos lol and you get honest with yourself and me.

Make sense? Good. Everything we do is documented and transparent – we don’t function like most.

A Team is Building

Yes! There is a team building. Way to go guys and gals! You are doing it! Soon there will be the first level or layer complete and there will be about fifty in the team that are profiting on a regular basis. Quite an accomplishment if you ask me as many of you (95%) were not profitable when you joined:) Now close to 80 even 90% of you are profitable – likely closer to 80% ish.

SO in summary, WE ARE BUILDING A TRADING GROUP OF WINNERS THAT WIN we are not building a sell you what you want to hear service. SO READ THE MEMOS! And don’t ask me questions that I’ve already answered in memos and material:) Do your homework! Be transparent, publish your trades in the room to help me help you (or at minimum send the entries and exits to me on DM or on email). I CANNOT HELP IF YOU DON’T DO THAT.

Hopefully the caps help get the point across to newer members lol

For those that have reached out to assist as interns, moderators, affiliates etc… we will contact you this weekend! Yes! For sure:)!

Anyway, now that I have internet and it seems my headset buzz is fixed I can get on to getting your reports up to date finally also:)

Cheers and Peace.

Curt

If you are receiving this and want to be taken off the list reply back and we’ll delete you from whatever list you’re on. And we’ll block you and you can never come back. Joking:) Have a great day all.


Evening all!

Once again, apologies for some that are receiving this more than once (you’re on multiple lists).

Super excited – been on an island for a week without useable internet and now its finally here. Yes, high speed fiber! Just call me Gilligan.

Oil room charting has been on since 6 pm this afternoon without a glitch – novel.

Anyway, quick update:

Now that I have internet I’ll have to make up the last week so watch out world!

I will be in oil room going forward at midnight EST each night until 4PM EST. The downtime I get away from trading is 4PM to midnight daily. That time (as of Monday) will be covered by moderators (not that there won’t be moderators trained for other parts of day also). And yes, during market hours I’ll be trading both rooms.

The interns / moderators etc that have expressed interest we will be reaching out this weekend.

Every evening for the foreseeable future in the oil room (when I arrive around midnight) I will be doing training sessions that I will video (we will also have video for whole sessions btw). Anyway, the point is that members that cant be in the room during those trading and how to use EPIC the Oil Algo charting sessions will be able to get the video and watch it later. Some I will leave public (especially in beginning) and many only members to oil room will be able to access on You Tube.

NOW that the internet is working (there was a tropical storm this evening while I got some sleep and no down time fyi) the regular reporting for the newsletters, oil room regular room and all other services will get back to normal over next 72 hours as we catch up.

Any other questions please email of DM anytime – I’ll be in a much better and approachable mood now that I can trade and earn with working internet:) Oh, and yes, I have learned the lessons of trading and traveling! A blog post for others is on the list:)

Thanks again for for grace through this frustrating time and we’ll see you in the room(s)!

Curt


Morning all.

Daytrading Room / Oil Trading Room and Internet:

So the wired internet did run the oil room all night (so far) with only one network blip – so perhaps it will run the daytrading room Monday without much issue (we’ll see).

I pinned the owner down to a completion time for the fiber install that starts Monday – he committed to be complete at latest end of day Tuesday… which means the daytrading room will be running on wired system that originates on cell network Monday and Tuesday during the day and the oil room will also.

So we’ve opted to only run the oil room on its own when oil opens Monday night and not through the day Monday and Tuesday so I don’t have to watch two rooms during the day Monday on inferior internet. And by Tuesday night we should be good to go with fiber network so as of Tues night the 24 hour oil room will in fact be 24 hours.

So in summary, when we start the premarket session for the daytrading room on Monday and Tuesday we will be shutting the oil room down each day and restarting it when the evening session starts. During the day Monday and Tuesday the oil room members are welcome to visit the daytrading room anytime and we’ll be running the oil charting in there for the next two days only.

So basically it comes down to make it work Monday and Tuesday and back to normal Wednesday.

Various other services such as newsletters for Swing Trading and Algorithms:

Most of the newsletters are getting out , however, the newest version of the Gold algorithm will not be out until the fiber internet is installed. Which will be Wednesday night. Subscribers of course are being credited time accordingly.

The post markets are also going to be delayed until after the new internet is complete. The data flow on the current internet is just not enough to process post market video uploads etc.

So the Gold algo update and the post market newsletters will resume Wednesday night.

Oh and the various other video uploads such as the EIA report and mid day chart reviews won’t re start until Wed because we simply don’t have the upload capacity until the fiber is in.

Any questions let me know!

Thanks

Curtis


Evening all!

A few miscellaneous updates:

INTERNET STATUS

First, the internet / travel status…. on Friday they hard wired my internet. So I now have wifi and hard wired BUT in testing it this weekend I’m not confident – its running 26 mbps which is barely adequate but the signal originates on a cell network and cell networks have blips (so expect blips for the next day or so).

I thought I was getting the fiber network… but nope, that’s coming tomorrow. The culture here is a tad different than North America and sorting through the commitments and expectations and representations is complicated at best 🙂

Anyway, I have confirmed (literally from the owner of the fiber internet company haha seriously) that fiber will be installed Monday.

So what’s that mean? It means we may have the odd blip in the oil trading room tonight and in the daytrading room tomorrow. Blip meaning charting disappears and comes back (like your cell phone can do at times).

It also means that some updates will be possibly and not for sure delayed until fiber is in. The chart load times are slow for the algorithms on the current – but they should all get out tonight.

Now, I know for sure the fiber is being installed Monday but do I know it will be working Monday? No, I do not lol. But we’re getting there. Slowly but surely.

TIME DOWN CREDIT / FREE TIME

And for the down time (as I mentioned last week), to be fair, the paying members will be credited the downtime at renewal time (the oil trading room members subscription doesn’t start until July 1 so we’re early anyway on that and anytime we are up before July 1 is a bonus anyway so that won’t apply but for the other services it will).

OIL TRADING ROOM CAP OF 50

Also, I’ve had a number of folks ask me if they can come in to oil room subscription in like two weeks or whenever in future. Unless otherwise provided for we are holding sub limit to 50 because I can only help along so many folks at a time and I want to provide the best service I can.

MY TRAVEL

In future we will endeavor to have this done and confirmed on site before I travel to my next destination. We learned a lot of lessons here. But at the same time we are transparent on our website to the fact that I will be traveling from here to death and that will at times cause some delay in service at various levels so it will in a way be part of the deal – but we will do everything we can to limit the inconvenience of course.

GETTING INVOLVED

Moderator etc expression of interest folks… we’re going to get past this internet issue, then completely refresh all algorithms and newsletter charting etc (once fiber is in and working) and then contact you all. Sorry for the delay but it may be June 25 until we’ve contacted everyone.

After last week, I am seriously geared to aggressive trading this week so lets get at it do this.

Best and peace.

Curt


Good morning traders!

A quick memorandum to update everyone on the status of my travel and the main trading room, oil room, alerts and reporting.

Prior to leaving on my extended trip to the Caribbean and having an itinerary focused to visiting island nations we did what we understood to be proper due diligence with respect to internet availability, suitability (mbps for example) and predictability (power outages etc).

Well…. the very first location fell very short and instead of delivering 100 mbps internet we got 9 mbps and that just wont do the job. So we spent the last 24 hours attempting to route all my trading and charts etc through a data centre in north america and that just didn’t work.

So in short, after nearly 24 hours of tech gymnastics we have an installation booked for this Friday at the flat I am at. The installation is for internet mbps speed that will more than handle the requirements of the trading rooms, alerts and reporting. Which really puts us in good stead for the weekend reporting (updating all the algorithms and reporting) and ready for Monday morning.

Between now and Monday all services will be intermittent at best – including Thursday and Friday trading room, 24 hour oil room, evening newsletter reporting, swing trading reports, alerts etc. But the weekend updates will be done in full and all systems back to normal for Monday morning.

The folks that have reached out to become involved at various levels in our launch (such as moderators in oil trading room) – we will contact you immediately after getting our tech issues solved and our weekend reporting caught up this weekend.

And finally the newest version of our Gold algo will also be delayed until this weekend and launched then.

I do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and we will of course be crediting appropriate time to member accounts (extension at renewal time). Actually, many of you I have spoke to through this very aggravating ordeal have been more than encouraging and supportive so I appreciate that very much!

So we’ll do our best between now and our hook-up on Friday but with no guarantees at all.

Next leg of the travel (in a few months) I will be sure to triple check the service at the destination location before departing.

Best and thanks again for being the trading group you guys and gals continue to be.

See ya in room Thursday morning and hopefully we’ll have some service consistency (at least enough to get a trading day in would be nice).

Talk soon.

 

 

 


Compound Trading Member Memorandum

Feb 3, 2017

Just a quick note / ramble to update our members on immediate and longer term developments for our charting reports, trade room and various stock trading services:

  • Morning Reports. Friday reports, those we are processing overnight – some do not require mid-week updates, will be VERY BRIEF mid week reports and full reports will be updated on weekend. All levels for all algorithmic charting models remain the same and our members have the existing levels.
    • $DXY Model – $DXY US Dollar / $USDJPY are at support decisions.
    • $GOLD is at a support decision.
    • $SILVER is at a support decision.
    • $VIX is trading within the model and classic indicators.
    • $OIL is testing important resistance decisions.
    • $SPY is trading within the model and classic indicators.
    • Swing Trading members have all current levels (more on updates below).
  • 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).
  • Miscellaneous Points. A few points about the status of our chart model development;
    • $DXY US Dollar is complete and testing very high so it will be published in full (testing similar to Gold, Silver and Oil models at 80% – 93% accuracy),
    • $VIX and $SPY will be published but are testing with the least predictability of the six.
    • The Gold and Silver algorithms – we are finished testing alpha algo lines – we have not been including these in reports to date (used for support and resistance) and algo targets (both similar to EPIC the Oil Algo charting)… new member updates will have those indicators on the charting like EPIC does. So this is actually big news for our Silver and Gold charting. For those wondering about the different kinds of algorithmic model indicators we endeavor to include in our models EPIC the Oil Algo is the best one to view to get an idea of the process and where we are going with each.
    • The swing trading service has been going extremely well, members have been sending all kinds of positive feedback. We will be significantly updating it this weekend. We also have been running model trading accounts for each swing service that we hope to get out soon – interesting results – very, very positive methodology evidence transpiring.
  • Profit and Loss Statements. My personal profit and loss statements for my large swing account and small account build are on our weekend publishing list too.
  • Daily Trading Results. I am behind on posting some of the daily trading results – will get those done also.
  • Your Feedback is Important! We have had a lot of email feedback from members, if you have any feedback please send it in, it really helps our planning and these to-do lists. It’s a community effort – your input is valuable. Ideas, thoughts, things we are doing right, things we can improve… please send us a note.
  • Weekly Webinars! We are also going to post a weekly webinar schedule this weekend for;
    • Members that would like a more in depth understanding of our charting and how to specifically use each chart for each equity will be able to attend weekly. Webinars will be done for our six algorithmic charting models, our swing trading service and our trading room. There will be one webinar each week at a set time for each service, every week. So yes, eight short webinars about 30 minutes each or 4 hours a week. If there is a day and/or time best for you weekly to take part please let us know for consideration!
    • Subscribers Considering our Services. We will be running a weekly webinar for those considering signing up that want to know more about our systems – we get so many inquiries – this way we can refer inquiring minds to a weekly 30 minute webinar that explains our algorithmic chart modeling and our swing service. So this will make it 4.5 hours of webinars done weekly.
  • Promo Discounts. So we did extend them for the members that asked, remember the promo codes shut down on weekend.

I think that covers our news, updates, morning charting advisory and stuff on our to-do list so that everyone knows our direction!

Thanks again!

Curt
