Which elite group of trader's are now making money in the stock market and future markets and why?
  • In 1986, Pete Steidlmayer, legendary Chicago floor trader, was asked why most traders lose money. Reflecting on his 22 years of trading experience, he replied:

    "First, you have to ask the question, what determines results in trading? This is a question few people have broken down and answered correctly. I believe the correct equation for results in trading is:

Your market understanding x ( You + Your trading strategy )
= Your trading results

Those futures and stock traders who have an edge in these three areas are the same traders who are still making money in the current hostile trading environment. How you develop these three components determines your edge and how profitable your trading will be. The course modules we offer are directly aimed at developing your skill level in these three crucial areas.

1. RAISE YOUR LEVEL OF MARKET UNDERSTANDING:

To raise your level of market understanding, you need trading methods anchored in the universal market principles that professional traders have always lived by --

We've based ALL of our instructional material on twelve core trading principles.

2. LEARN STRATEGIES THAT WORK IN ALL MARKET CONDTIONS

Trading strategies that work need to be robust and stable over long periods -- they can't just work for short periods of time then fall apart in bear markets.

Every single trading strategy and tactic that we teach evolved from the twelve core trading principles listed above; and they were developed and tested in both bull and bear markets on a database of stock and futures data that includes:

    • Cash commodity data from 1860 to 1930's
    • Futures (and foergin currency) data from 1976 forward
    • Cash stock and stock index data from 1909 to current.

Principle-based Trading Strategies & Tactics

3. GAIN CONTROL OF THE YOU COMPONENT

The third part of the trading results equation is the YOU component. It's the least understood -- and until you change your mindset and learn new techniques for gaining control of this component it's going to continue to undermine your trading results. How many times have you sabotaged your own trades?

We don't neglect this part of the formula; in fact we've assembled the best course material currently available, anywhere, at any price; written by full-time traders who teach you exactly what you need to do to start thinking as the pros think. Our Trading Psychology courses.
