Have you been having trouble beating the market?

If yes, you’re not alone! The market is up double digits already, yet the Hedge Fund Index shows a miserable year-to-date return. Folks, that’s smart money, people like the awesome Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates, Steve Cohen of Point72, even the great Stanley Druckenmiller of Duquesne Family Office have all been unable to beat the market this year. So you have to wonder, why do these large multi-billion dollar institutions waste time and money on people who can’t even beat the market? Why don’t they just park their money in something like $SPY and let it ride? The answer is pretty simple. Institutions balance their portfolios. The market doesn’t always go up, and if they play their cards right by choosing the right firm, they can take advantage of the lucrative daily volatility of the market. So they keep hunting, going to conferences, taking dozens of meetings each year with hedge funds that are vying for their business, all in the hope of trying to get that edge. All for the goal of increasing the returns of the funds under their management, with as little overall risk as possible. 

It’s not the open, close, high, and low of the instrument that matters. Oh no, not at all! The meat of trading potential is subtly tucked away in between. In between what you say? In between the beginning and the end. There’s a lot of volatility in price in between the open, close, high, and low of the day. Just like the journey of life isn’t that we are born, and then we die, but what we do in between that matters. 

Buy hey, let’s focus on you. How did you do in the market? Are you beating the market so far? Are you trading funds for others? If so, are they happy with your service? Do you trade funds for yourself? Are you happy with your results? If yes, congrats, we should meet, have a couple of beers and talk shop, because people like you are a very rare breed. Are you satisfied with your results? Be honest with yourself, if you are honest with yourself (verum tuae sui – to thine own self be true), you will continue reading this.

If you’ve read tons of trading books and blogs, listened to trading podcasts, paid thousands for trading courses, thousands for trading conferences/seminars, thousands for trading gurus, months that turned into years of backtesting your strategies only to find that every single time you went from simulated trades to live trades you ultimately lost money. Keep reading, because I have a solution to your problem, and you should take a strong look at it.

Here’s some insight of what I’ve learned trading and coding successful trading strategies over the years. 

  1. You need to test your strategy for every year going back to 2008.
  2. You need to test your strategy at a minimum on 10,000 trades during that time.
  3. You need to account for news, not just economic news, but tweets from market movers like Trump and others.
  4. Your stops will get hunted at times where volume can be manipulated by larger players, account for it.
  5. Don’t worry about losing small battles, it’s all about winning the war (measured by quarters or years) that counts. 
  6. It’s a numbers game; trade quantitatively, not with your emotions; i.e. never trade manually.
  7. The market is never wrong, even if it’s completely crazy. Check your emotions! You’d be surprised how many “pros” will turn off the short leg of their automated trading long-short strategy, because their gut tells them so.
  8. Don’t lose hope if you have a bad week, even a bad month. It is impossible to make outsized returns without taking significant losses. The objective isn’t to win every trade; the objective is to get excellent return on your investment over time. For some, that time is measured in quarters, others at the end of the year; it all depends on your goals.
  9. Never trade outside your comfort zone. Trading shouldn’t give you panic attacks. If you are getting nervous, that means you are trading outside of what you can afford to lose. Trading is not only fun, it’s exciting, if you know what you are doing. To me, it’s a lot like playing poker, except with better odds, and more control. 
  10. Every instrument has a different breed of traders trading it. You won’t find too many penny stock traders that trade the SPooz (S&P 500 futures). When trading SPooz, you will usually be trading against very sophisticated trading algorithms, like the long-short strategy that I’ve developed, or in the minority of cases, against very seasoned futures traders that use all sorts of signals, but still enter trades manually. 

Let me cut to the chase – You, me, and the entire world is full of skeptics. No one believes anything. Rightfully so, there are scams in every corner. Here’s the typical skeptics question when it comes to trading systems – “If the system is so good why is he selling it?” 

I thought about this a lot. In the beginning, I didn’t want to sell it. Here’s what happened, I’m a licensed CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor). This means I am highly regulated by the NFA. You would think that would be enough for institutions or big money to trust me. I mean, I only do managed futures, so I am literally managing their trading account under power of attorney. I can’t even cash out their funds if I wanted to; every brokerage that allows money managers to manage a trading account has restrictions on withdrawals; money managers can trade, but cannot add or withdraw funds.

So why aren’t my targeted audience, institutional investors, signing up with me? Simple, I found out that they won’t even consider doing business with one-man shops even if my returns crushed their returns! I need to have a team, a distinguished board of directors, and on average at least $100 million AUM for anyone with big money to take me seriously. I can’t even get a meeting with these guys! It’s incredibly frustrating. I was fortunate that I was interviewed by Opalesque TV, so at least a few of these guys had heard of me, but even so, I was not granted an audience. 

That left me with the people that have on average $25K to risk. I love those people. Salt of the earth, but that is just not enough funds for trading futures, especially if you have an aggressive goal of getting outsized returns, which is the entire objective of my strategy. For example, if you want to double your money using futures as your trading instrument, $25K isn’t going to be enough for a money manager like me. The E-Mini futures are a 50 to 1 levered product. You can have huge wins, but also huge losses. People with $25K can lose $2K and be out, because that’s a lot of money for them.  That’s not worth my time. The effort it takes to land someone, and the cost that goes along with it, doesn’t get justified with small accounts. So as you can see from my dilemma, I had little choice but to offer my strategy for sale. However, that doesn’t solve the problem of the skeptic.

So here’s my offer and my solution for the skeptic – download my strategy for FREE. Use it in live simulated mode for FREE. Do so for 90 days! Use my strategy to backtest the results going back to as far as you want to go back! 

Want to see the results of the “Market Volatility Harvester” strategy? Great! Download my strategy and use it for FREE for 90 days! Run backtests with it. Run it live in simulated trading mode to see exactly what it does for yourself!

Want to see how the “Market Volatility Harvester” strategy works? Great! Download my strategy, and use it for FREE for 90 days! I can tell you this much, this work is a culmination of nearly 5 years of labor, over 20,000 trades have been tested, a cumulative of hundreds of thousands of lines of code have been tested, filtered, changed, re-changed, until I reached a level where I am very pleased with the results, and I think you will be too. There’s only one way to find out. Download the strategy, you guessed it, for FREE for 90 days! 

When it comes to trading, seeing is believing! 

Here’s what you will need to test this strategy:

1) Windows operating system.
2) NinjaTrader (free version available, details will be included in easy-to-follow instructional video).
3) Fast Internet connection. 
4) Open mind to thoroughly test a new highly sophisticated trading strategy at no cost or obligation to you.

That’s it!

This would also be a good time to mention that this strategy is not the strategy Opalesque TV interviewed me about. That strategy is a great strategy too, but it is extremely conservative, where weeks can go by and no trades get entered as that strategy is looking for near perfect set-ups. The new “Market Volatility Harvester” on-the-other-hand is far more aggressive, far more robust, and can potentially enter hundreds of trades per month. “Market Volatility Harvester” is designed for people that have designated X% of their portfolios for high-risk, yet high-reward opportunities. If you currently trade futures, options, oil, or cryptos of any kind, which in my view is more risky than the E-mini S&P 500 futures, you would be doing a huge disservice to yourself if you do not at least check out my trading system for yourself!

If you are a serious trader, fill out the form below, and if all is well, I will email you my strategy, and provide you with easy-to-follow video instructions on how to download and use the strategy. 

I hope I have now crushed your skepticism.:-) But by golly you still have to take the step of filling out the form below, watching a short video on how to easily use everything, and then turn on the strategy… Gosh, if people can just put money directly in your bank account, you wouldn’t have to go through all this trouble.:-)  

Don’t waste another minute! Request “Market Volatility Harvester” and see how well it works with your own eyes. If you like it, you can buy the live version from me. It won’t be cheap; nothing good is ever cheap, but I have a strong feeling you will find the relatively small investment to be worth every penny, and if you manage money for others, so will they! I can tell you this much, buying the strategy will definitely be much cheaper than paying my performance fee, and it gives you the control.

Please don’t ask me precisely how much it is at this stage, backtest it yourself, and use it in live simulated trades first. I will note this about the price, the purchase price is set-up on a per contract basis; meaning you pay a one-time fee per contract you wish to have my fully automated E-mini S&P 500 futures trading system trade for you. Please note, once I hit a total of 50,000 contracts among all clients, I will stop selling my strategy, as I feel we would be hitting market scale at that point for this strategy.

Once you decide to purchase a live copy of “Market Volatility Harvester” from me, you can use it to trade your own funds and/or trade funds for others if you are set-up to do so, I have no restrictions there. Hedge funds, portfolio managers, money managers, other CTAs, family offices, and serious traders welcome!
