The reason professional traders remain profitable year after year is because their strategies and trading tactics are based on market principles.

  • We've carefuly researched stock market movements and futures market fluctuations as far back as 1862; and we've been trading stocks and futures full-time since 1978.

  • We've spent a decade distilling this experience into a core gorup of trading principles that govern ALL price movement. These trading principles work in stocks, currencies and futures; in bull or bear markets.

  • Every single trading strategy and tactic that you'll find in a Trend Dynamics trading course is based on one or more of these twelve trading principles listed below:

    FIRST LAW: Time conditions and affects the potency of all price movement.

    SECOND LAW: Trends that run counter to the next larger timeframe tend to be abortive.

    THIRD LAW: Positive trade expectation occurs when the perception of the probability of a price event diverges from the actual probability of such an event.

    FOURTH LAW: Trading ranges usually terminate coincident with tests of their extremes.

    FIFTH LAW: Old demand levels become new supply levels, and old supply levels become new demand levels.

    SIXTH LAW: A change effort is often followed by a test of the point of change.

    SEVENTH LAW: Dramatic price movements tend to unfold from price structures that minimize profitable participation.

    EIGHTH LAW: The absolute value of a given price pattern is the product of the intrinsic value of that pattern modified by the context in which it occurs.

    NINTH LAW: Trading ranges that follow new trend changes are likely to terminate in the direction of that new trend.

    TENTH LAW: A dominating trend will generally run until the next larger timeframe can provide offsetting support or resistance.

    ELEVENTH LAW: Under most circumstances, the markets will be either readable or reliable.

    TWELFTH LAW: Small risk attracts large size.

    FOURTEENTH LAW: Play tight in a loose market, and loose in a tight market..

FIFTEENTH LAW: Markets move violently in place, and quietly from place to place.
