Welcome to the tactical Investor where we use a combination of Mass Psychology, Technical Analysis, Fundamentals, esoteric cycle and price point analysis to keep us on the right side of the Market. These rules are applied to both our services VIP Futures Service and Market Update Service.
The Market update service focuses on equities (Stocks, ETF's, options, etc). This is our most popular service as the Majority of players tend to focus on the equities sector. We were one of the few services to nail the 2003 bottom almost exactly and we managed to do the same thing for the 2009 bottom. For more details, past calls and subscription info Click here
The VIP Futures Service is for traders who want to enter the world of futures; some details of this service are provided below. Click Here For more Information on this Service . The quota for this service is very small.
VIP Futures Service
We are not going to squander time mincing words; instead we are going to provide hard cold facts that will more than clearly broadcast how extremely effective and accurate this service is.
We do not waste time sending out fancy emails; in fact our emails are boringly simple. We dedicate our time to studying the markets and spotting the next trading opportunity. Trades are not issued for the sake of being issued. We only issue trades when our systems indicate that there is the risk to reward ratio is in our favour and the probability of winning is significantly higher than that of losing. There are months when a plethora of trades are issued and there are months when things get a bit slower, but the situation is never quiet for long. There is always something going on in the futures arena. It is not the quantity of trades that count but the quality.
Our average win ratio for the past 6 years is over 78%.
In 2010 our main portfolio suffered only one loss which gives it a winning ratio of 90%. The average trade yielded $1500. With just one winning trade you could have paid your subscription for 2 or more years. The one losing trade generated a tiny loss of only $350. Trades are carefully issued here as more emphasis is placed on safety than on capital gains.
Our secondary portfolio formerly known as the unofficial portfolio but is now known as the” velocity portfolio “is our most active portfolio and the one that is followed by the majority of our subscribers. Here a bit more emphasis is placed on capital gains.
In 2010 we issued 39 trades for a win ratio in excess of 82%,; the results of these trades are as follows
29 winning trades; the average winning trade yielded $1560
3 break evens
And only 7 losing trades
If we count the break evens as part of the wins as no loss was generated it gives us a win ratio in excess of 82%. If we discount the trades where we broke even, we get a win ratio of 75%. From the date of our inception we have averaged a win ratio in excess of 75%; this is almost unheard off in the futures world. Once again just one wining trade from this portfolio could have paid for 2 plus years of service.
As a bonus service we introduced a “special situations portfolio” at the bequest of our subscribers. These are trades that are generated on a different criterion. The risk is slightly higher than that associated with either the Main portfolio or Velocity Portfolio. We could have charged extra for this service but decided to throw it in for free. This portfolio was introduced in May of 2010 and for the year it had a win ratio of 94%.
19 trades were issued in 2010.
18 of these trades were winners. Average trade generated $2038
The average trade produced a gain of $2038 which could have paid for over 4 years worth of service.
Hedge fund managers strive to achieve such results and would die to be able to boast of such results. You now have the opportunity to be on the winning side of the market. All that stands between you and the next winning trade is your mouse. Click on this link to become part of our winning team.
For 2011 our win ratio is still in excess of 78%; we will be listing the results from our portfolios shortly.
Below we provide a few excerpts from the VIP Service; more will follow soon.
May 31, 2011
By now everyone is aware that extreme V readings have the ability to extend a trend well beyond its originally projected target. So it appears that until the longer term trends change, one has to be prepared to deal with violent counter moves; The Swiss franc has demonstrated this behaviour in the most extreme manner. It has actually surged to new highs. In our opinion opening a strangle position here (buying a put and a call) should potentially lead to rather lucrative gains. The franc is at extreme inflation point and its going to experience a big move either to the upside or downside. Either way one stands to make a bundle. VIP Update May 31, 2011
Traders who opened up strangle play were able to walk away with gains in excess of 150% on their call positions as the franc at its highest point was up over 270 ticks from the time this email was sent out.
Until it trades below 27 on a weekly basis it is opening up the possibility that it will surge to test its Jan highs in the 30 ranges. From a long term perspective, this will be a very bullish development. VIP Update NOV 1, 2010
Sugar did test its Jan 2010 highs; it traded as high as 30.49 before pulling back.
Traders willing to take on a bit of risk can consider the following strategy. Open up a strangle position; this involves the purchase of call and a put option. The goal here is to look for a big move; the direction of the move is irrelevant as you are holding a put and a call. For example, one could purchase the Dec 1390 calls, and the Dec 1280 puts. Note this is just an example and is not a recommendation. The only risk is that Gold does not move in which you would lose money on both ends, but given that it is such a volatile market it is bound to move in one direction or the other. Aim for an option that has at least 30-60 days of time on it. Thus you might have to aim for the March 2011 options as the Dec options expire on the 23rd of November. VIP Update Nov 17, 2010.
Traders who followed this strategy locked in impressive gains as the put part of the strangle Play soared in value. In less than 20 trading days Gold soared all the way to 1436. This represented a gain of roughly 100 dollars from the day this strategy was recommended. This relatively low risk strategy paid of very handsomely indeed.
