How to make money from the markets – Introduction

There’s a huge number of myths out there about investing and trading that are quite simply – a load of rubbish.

Over the next few months, I’m going to show you how to make money from ANY market.

The first question you have to answer is:

  1. What do you want from the markets?


This will be personable to you – It could be anything!

This is what I want from the market:

  • When I decide to trade the market, I want to beat the markets return!
  • I aim for 25%+ and from that I know that over 3 years+ I will beat the market

so from that base I then set about formulating a plan of action to try to obtain 25% + return from the market annually

As I’m a very lazy person, naturally I wanted the easiest route to achieving this goal.

There is no Holy Grail and by that I mean some unknown, unknown that no-ones discovered yet that will let you be right 100% of the time.

Take a breath, think about it – there is not one system, method or technique that works 100% of the time.

  • That then means that you have got to take positions based on faith, trust and gambling

Yep that’s right, its a gamble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So if it’s a gamble, then don’t you think it makes sense to remove as much risk to the gamble, guess, as is possible?  Of course it does.

That is what I’m going to show you in this series of posts

I’m going to show you how to AIM for that 25%+ annual returns from a variety of methods

There’s lots of methods to trade by – your next important question you’ll need to answer for yourself is

  • Are you willing to trade boringly and EXACTLY the same time after time

If your answer to this question is NO – then trading is probably NOT for you – you cannot start mixing and matching and varying what you do

For example I trade ONLY when the market is in a perfect set-up formation that I have devised (and i will show you this) – if the conditions aren’t there, then I won’t be putting money at risk.

So over the coming months I will show you how to make money from the markets, how to identify potential trades and how to think properly.

This series of posts will be based at the complete novice level, but it’s applicable to professional traders too – the whole aim of trading/Investing is to make money from the money you put at risk.

Now there’s only 2 ways to do that:

  1. Invest and then leave (Buying and Holding) or
  2. Trading

I like to be as much in control as I can of my money so I sit in the traders camp, as I’m often sat in cash waiting to take a position and then my positions tend to last days-weeks or months not years.

You’re going to need to understand and use basic mathematical concepts, because I’m afraid it is all about the maths whether you turn a profit or not!

Let’s say you make the 25% per year goal, if you start with £3,000 then over 25 years that will grow to £794K!

That’s a nice payback for extracting money from the markets.

Now if you’re a buy and hold investor then you will be fully exposed to market forces and you’re likely to experience some pretty hefty corrections along the way over the years – you are highly unlikely to hit the 25%+ goal per annum using this method – you might do it a few years out of 10, but not 10/10 years.

How to guess the market

Someone asked me the other week for my opinion on the markets – see chart below, the text on the chart came to fruition and worked perfectly.

Outlook for February?

Well just from the formation on the weekly chart [not shown] and it’s relative DTosc Indicator = BEARISH

and the daily chart is due for a bounce next week, but you need to be very wary of the daily DTosc when it next makes a bearish reversal as if the weekly chart is still bearish then the odds are very high for further falls

Again all this is based on how the charts “look” TODAY – my opinion could change in the coming weeks as more data is printed on the charts

A professional moves with the times not get stuck on the now, past of personal opinions – let the market tell you what it’s actually doing!

This site is made for people reading on a PC – phones will not display the charts clearly


4 Year – Next repeat?

This cycle nearly always arrives in OCTOBER.

The next hit is October 2018

I did mention this when it last hit in October 2014 – some 4 years aggggooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

With the exception of 1994 & 2002 – just look at how this cycle has arrived and the markets bounced many %

4yr cycle

the 2 years in question – 1994 & 2002 – were not void they just took a few more months to get going – they still eventually worked.

Lets PRETEND that 1994 and 2002 failed – so out of 9 trade potentials since 1982, 2 failed = 78% win rate – which is pretty damn good (In fact when you take this cycle back centuries the win rate is 90+%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make a note of it in your diaries – look back in 2019 to what happened in 2018 and specifically around October time.

Why (and How) I use Swing files

It’s ALL dead simple AND most Importantly COMMON SENSE – keep your trading as simple as possible!

  1. They give me a visual picture on the swings (as I determine them) of the marketplace
  2. They give me in an instant the direction of the smaller swing file AND the larger swing file  – this allows me to instantly work out whether a market is MIXED, BULLISH or BEARISH Instantly
  3. It allows me to SEE virtually Instantly whether a market is setting up one of my trading set-ups/methods
  4. It allows me to calculate Time and Price expectations based on PRIOR swings
  5. It allows me to SEE with a few clicks of the mouse the ENTIRE STATISTICS of the market I’m looking at
  6. I can match up TIMES of High to High, Low to Low, Low to High and High to Low to see quickly if there’s a tight range of TIME
  7. I can quickly and easily SEE Gann’s market formations (If any are forming!)
  8. I can quickly and easily see if there’s a pattern of rising lows or lower highs
  9. I trade lows and bottoms – It allows me to identify these quickly with the aid of an Indicator too

Lets see the Swing Files in action – Remember to get the info on the charts took me less than  30 seconds:

Instantly tell if a market is in a trading range or bullish/bearish


It also Instantly shows you a “visual” gauge of the ACTUAL swings the market has made over X days/weeks/months/years


I can calculate TIME from the swings in a number of ways:

Shown are the Dynamic Time Projection AND The TIME Rhythm Zone – both calculated in about 5 seconds from the swings shown on the chart – If the markets following similar time calcs as it did on prior swings then this info is invaluable.


I can also do similar for PRICE


I can look at the stats of the swings and work out the following:

Is there a particular day of the week the stock/market moves significantly up or down?

I can also see month stats too (no chart shown)


I can also in seconds work out the % swings of the market for min / Average & Max swings

As you can see this markets average typical BULLISH swing was 5.4% and the DECLINES during a bullish UP phase maxed out at 6.3%


However, during the BEARISH down phases the up phases averaged 2.8% whilst the down phases were 5.1%


The Bright BLUE line = the MAIN UP or DOWN Trend as determined by the setting of the swing file – in this case it’s an automatic setting – but you could set it as say a 10% swing file – this means EVERY time the market moves up or down by 10% the line will follow

the Green UP and red DOWN lines are a short-term swing file again in this case automatic but it could be say a 4% swing file – which obviously would change every 4% move of the market.

The bright Blue governs the stats as to whether the market is considered bullish or bearish – so for example if the bright blue swing file line is pointing UP/BULLISH then  every GREEN UP/Bullish short-term swing file confirmation could be bought.

Obviously though – If you have a 4% swing file on and you buy then you’ve missed 4% of the move and if as in the instances of the charts above the average for that market is 5.4% then there’s not much left to profit from!

Here’s something you could consider – Shift the short-term swing file to the become the Intermediate swing file and create a bigger Intermediate swing file.

This then “removes” the short-term noise from the picture and gives more bang for your buck – Obviously it would help if you had some form of pattern recognition to identify trades


So you can see and PROVE it – to yourself what the typical swings of the market have been in the past and roughly what they should be in the future – If you’re in a Bullish up phase on the higher % swing file and the markets pulled back in a decline on the smaller swing file and various other indications are suggesting a low is forming then the opportunity to establish long positions upon confirmation can be seriously considered and you could even calculate the potential up swing min/average/max including TIME when it might potentially end – ALL INADVANCE!!!!!!!!!!

This could also be used in conjunction with other timing methods you may use and pattern recognition such as Elliott Wave, Gann or whatever you prefer to use.

You could also add automatic dates and info to the swing highs/lows or both to see if there’s a typical cycle of TD’s or CD’s from low to low etc -which could be used to narrow timing down etc.

The bottom line is you have all the facts of what the market has previously DONE – those facts don’t not predict the future, but they do give you a pretty good indication of what “MIGHT” happen

The Butterfly & Gartley Method

This one and it’s offshoots are in the generic trading community and you’ve more than likely come across it already .

You may even use it, you may have seen it and discounted it and you may have tried it and given up – Let me show you how to use it properly – The Hovis Trader way.

In the 1930’s a book was written by a man called Gartley – on page 222 he showed a trading set-up that has now become known as the Gartley 222 method – It also has variations to it.

I am certain the web is full of detail on this method, so I’m not going to explain all the traits of the set-up, if you want to that is up to YOU to do – link at the end.

Depending upon the price activity and form of the set-up it can be known as a BAT, CRAB, BUTTERFLY or straight-forward Gartley 222 pattern

The purpose of this post is to show you how I use this set-up method in my trading, as It’s not as the trading method was created (although I do trade the BULLISH trades when I see them)

Now the whole point of the set-up is to identify the ENDING part/zone and then prepare to take trades in the OPPOSITE direction (As usual Charts will detail content), to catch the longer term trade reversal.

The problem is this does not always happen! As this is trading, it does not happen 100% of the time I’m afraid!

However, if the set-up sets up, then the market offers you a chance of playing the game in the run-up to the target zone! THIS is my PREFERRED way to trade these BEFORE price action reaches the target zone!  I did say at the start that I’ve put my own mark on this method!

There’s time when I’ve reviewed a market, decided to trade it and THEN I’ve noticed that it’s in a Gartley/Butterfly position!  When you trade pullbacks this will happen as a natural process of trading pullbacks!

Now I know in the charts below some of the set-ups aren’t exact proper Gartley and Butterfly methods – I use my knowledge to trade when I see similar formations – I don’t work strictly to the exact methods – If this is new to you I would suggest that you do stick to the exact methods.

I only trade long, so I only take trades on potential BEARISH Gartley’s and I get in at point B and point C for Butterflies (see chart below) and point c for BULLISH Gartley’s






Now If you’ve invested £20 into Robert Miners book “high probability trading methods” you will notice that these methods ALL fit within his fib price ratios for an Elliott Wave ABC corrective pattern – so you could just use Miners ratios and the ABC and you WILL pick these set-ups up naturally – keep it as simple as possible.

For the sake of £20 – I would urge you to get the book, read it, put it away for a few weeks, read it again, put it away and 1 week later get it out again, read it and test the methods on the market – thinking all the time about market form and reactions – If you focus on Elliott wave exactness then you will drive yourself insane, just apply the basic methods and you’ll win.  The methods in that book allow you to WIN even when WRONG on the formation forming!  In my opinion the book and Ganns basic methods are the real holy grail in the markets

I don’t care whether it’s a Bat, Gartley, Butterfly, Shark or a dog – all I’m bothered about is, Is it a high probability trading opportunity that if it works out as expected then makes me 3R+

Do not get hung up on these fitting perfectly – If you’re trading LONG – then you want to get in at the lows and see if the move works out as expected.

Disclosure:  I do refine my trades to increase the probability, which is NOT shown on the charts above, but if you own Miners book – HPTM – then you’ll of read it in there. This blog is for INFORMATION purposes only – trade at your OWN risk

Still waiting for the CRASH?

As I mentioned yeeeeaaaarrrrs agooooooo

I think you’re in for a very long wait.

The markets did within reason what I was expecting from as far back as 2012/13 – 4-5 years ago!

I think this is do or die for the Elliott Wave Method – again as mentioned on here back in 2012 or 2013 – they do not have any option but a massive crash – it’s already over extended (1st spouted waaaaay back in 1986 – yes 1986) then repeated in 2000, 2007 and most recently ALL the way from the 2009 bottom.

It Is NOT going to happen

Gann WAS AWARE of Ralph.N. Elliott and his method as they were around at the same time – but Gann never mentions it, I’m working on a method that is more advanced than Elliott Wave Principle – Gann knew that the market puts in more “waves” than 5 up and 3 down = 8 (there’s an extra few more waves) as I’ve NEVER been happy with Elliott Wave Theory in its current form.

Anyway, ALWAYS trade in the direction of the market and as you can SEE from the chart below since 2009 which way has the big thick arrow been pointing?


At some point in time there WILL be a decent correction of significance – 15%, 20%, 25% etc and AS the growth of the market is greater than years gone by then so will any correction – A 30% correction @ 5,000 will have bigger looking swings than those 30% corrections @ 1000 – yet the % drops are likely to be similar.

Good luck

Do you use or look at SENTIMENT readings?

You should, they can be a good warning for buying opportunities or when the market is over-heating.

You can find out the data at Barrons –

Check out my THT Market Basics page for details on this and the levels that warrant closer inspection – details ARE within that page

The CURRENT market at time of writing 22nd February 2017 is fast approaching the lower levels of the zone to be cautious

All the best


Gann Series Introduction- Feb 2017

I’m starting my series of W.D. Gann related posts from the beginning – There is still a huge veil of unknowing that still surrounds Gann to this day – some believe his claims of making $50,000,000 others don’t – What we do know is that Gann made some calls on Wheat and stocks that happened, How he managed to do exactly that we are ALL still searching for – Gann knew in advance what price and when a stock should turn/move to etc – Gann apportioned this to having worked out that markets/stocks VIBRATE according to Natural Law.  We will look at part of this in this post – future posts will develop the theory

In this Gann Series I will NOT be going into massive detail about this or that – you’ll either be interested or not – what I will do is show you you things, If you’re Interested you’ll then have the ability to research, expand knowledge and test for yourself on your own and in your own time – If I did everything for you, It would take up a huge amount of my time that I just don’t have available.

First the DISCLAIMER – I’ve personally avoided being drawn into the trading community, I’ve not subscribed to trading magazines, services, Internet groups or the like and still don’t – as I prefer to discover things for myself –  and I’ve not bought any of the courses on Gann from 3rd parties, apart from Gann’s own courses and Bradley F Cowans courses – I  bought the lot in one foul swoop from Mr. Cowan and have been exploring the markets scientifically ever since.  So I have no way or inclination of knowing that what I write about going forward in this and future Gann posts, has already been written about or not (I’ve come to trading late in the 2000’s, the discoveries I’ve made must have been discovered and written about prior to now, I would find it hard to believe that thousands of people who have looked at Gann have not found and explored what I’m going to talk about, especially since the Internet became mass used in the mid 90’s onwards  – The entire content of this series will be my own work, thoughts and interpretation of Gann’s works  – If I’ve used a source, it will be referred to as their work not mine.

I don’t think you need Gann’s courses either, but they are handy to own so that you can refer to etc – you won’t get too much out of them – REMEMBER I’m willing to bet tens of thousands of people since the 1950’s have owned and read his courses and that 95% of them are still none the wiser as to using his methods as 99% of the courses are generic – Gann’s course of Instructions on Gann Geometrical angles, can’t be employed successfully in today’s markets on there own – same with his course on time cycles (hit and miss at best) – you might be aware, but Gann sold a simple course and he also sold sold a much higher priced course that was much greater detailed (we’ll see evidence of this in future posts in this series)

First you NEED to learn and understand things that Gann Said in his material – we also need to make some assumptions too (this is the subjective part!(Where it can all go wrong!))  The reason we need to understand what Gann said is because he DID NOT reveal exactly his methods or calculations – he hid the true meaning in veiled words and sentences, so it’s important to start off thinking about where Gann came from and then work outwards to his methods from there, so that is what we shall do – Please note, this is NOT a detailed or in-depth analysis (I’ve no intention of writing a book on the subject so I don’t have to and won’t be 100% thorough – but you’ll have a enough to start thinking properly)

  1. Gann WAS a Freemason – You start to learn the secrets of the Egyptians AND Geometry in this cult (Yes it is a cult/sect)
  2. Do NOT dismiss this – it is more relevant than you know!
  3. For Example – The Great Fire of London happened early September 1666 – on the 11th September Sir Christopher Wren (Freemason) submitted plans to the King of England for the rebuilding of the part of the city that had been destroyed by the raging fire – These plans were based on the geometrical structure “Sephirothic Tree ” THEN just 2 days later on the 13th September 1666 John Evelyn (Freemason) presented virtually the same design to the King (1)
  4. The King rejected both designs – just stop and think for 1 minute, would it be possible for an Architect to draft and produce city plans in a handful of days???? Not a chance


So these plans were rejected by the King of England, BUT over 100 years later the plans WERE implemented into a City – the newly found capital of the USA (Washington DC) – These plans were virtually identical to those produced by Wren for London!!!!!

You can bet your bottom dollar that within Washington DC street plan reference either written or visually represented by statues etc to those sacred aspects and terms on the Sephirothic Tree above


  • This is well worth researching as you will find reference to this type of thing in Gann’s recommended reading
  • Gann’s Square of Nine is clearly a Pyramid – 2 Dimension looking from above it – Freemasonry Is heavily associated with The Egyptians – All you have to do is find Egyptian Obelisk’s that stand proudly in plain sight in London, Paris and Washington and find out where they were taken from – so it is 100% clear Ancient Egypt and Freemasonry are inter-connected.    As Gann was a master mason and his methods were very esoteric we subjectively connect the 2
  • Freemasonry was all about GEOMETRY & Numbers especially number relevance – it’s why certain ceremonies take place on certain dates and times.
  • Freemasonry is full of secrets – probably why Gann hid clues n his works rather than come out directly tell you
  • Gann WAS also an Astrologist – we have proof of this
  • What we don’t have proof of is that Gann used Astrology as we know & understand it i.e. Newspaper Astrology etc to trade from/with
  •  The quotes below should point you in the direction looked at things – we can prove this as they are taken directly from his marketing material he produced to sell his courses and books – straight from the horses mouth!
  • Having read Gann’s course and books it is obvious that Gann did NOT fully reveal his true methods – His Coffee Santos letter to a private student is probably one of a few letters that give you a clue to what he did and yet when you try to replicate this it is very very hard to know the markets EXACT moves! – Also Gann either intentially or not put errors in his work – this was either a genuine typo or an error to force the student to rework the figures to learn.
  • I will be publishing a special blog post referring to “Tunnel Thru the Air” at some point in the future
  • Now lets look at some key Gann quotes – all Gann quotes in “” – from his marketing material:
  • “Stocks are like Electrons, Atoms and molecules, which hold persistently to their own individuality in response to the fundamental Law of Vibration.  Science teaches that an original impulse of any kind finally resolves itself into periodic or rhythmical motion” “Stocks like atoms are really centres of energies, therefore they are controlled mathematically.  Stocks create their own field of action and power, power to attract and repel”- I am working on this very thing right now – attract/repel is magnetic [see below] and THIS is very very important from my initial findings
  • “Faraday said There is nothing in the universe but mathematical points of force – My memory tells me this was MAGNETIC points of force, so Gann could have either got this wrong or replaced mathematics for magnetic in an attempt to divert you to look at magnetic properties etc or I might be wrong but I thought Faraday worked on magnetics not maths – It’s late and I can’t be bothered to look to reference it as it’s not that important – point is on Earth magnetism exits so do mathematics could be either or both
  • Law of Vibration “I soon began to note the periodical recurrence of the rise and fall in stocks and commodities.  This led me to conclude that natural law was the basis of market movements” “The Law of Vibration is the fundamental law upon which wireless telegraphy, wireless telephones and  phonographs are based “”There exists a periodic or  cyclic law which is at the back of all these movements” “The Law which I have applied will not only give these long cycles or swings, but the daily and hourly movements of stocks.  By knowing the exact vibration of each individual stock I am able to determine at what point each will receive support and at what point the greatest resistance is to be met” “I have found that in the stock itself exists its harmonic or inharmonic relationship to the driving power behind it.  the secret of all its activity is therefore apparent” “I have also found that certain phases of this law govern the rise in a stock and an entirely different rule operates on the decline” – It’s a best guess that this refers to the sympathetic resonance that exists in music and sound – this can be used as the planets cycle in cycles that harmonically resonate with each other (Gann’s Time Cycles are also Planetary cycles i.e. the 30 year cycle is Saturn – this is mentioned in one of his courses directly – whether intentionally or unintentionally / which then allows you to explore all the other planets).  The last quote could also reference Gann’s Soybean chart with Jupiter and Mars Interacting – as can be seen from his [Gann’s] Soybean chart, with Mar’s position plotted in PRICE as well as Jupiter’s and when the two meet price faced big resistance – The Time cycles that I present on this site are based on Sympathetic Resonance (This is WHY static Time Cycles don’t work that well, as at times the source cycle could be in a fast or slow speed depending upon where it is at in its cycle)
  • Astrology & Scientific methods – “Time proves ALL things, even when stocks make tops and bottoms….because we know by MATHEMATICAL SCIENCE when time cycles repeat. These valuable rules are all in the Bible if you know where to find them” – This clue is obviously directly related to ASTRONOMY as you can PROVE the EXACT location of the planets based on pure mathematical science (Astrology is NOT a mathematical science, but Astronomy IS)
  • In Gann’s reading list there is a book called – Teritum Orgamum – this book is about the 3rd and 4th Dimensions –  Gann’s Master chart lesson says “Market movements are made just the same as any other thing which is constructed.  It is just the same as constructing a building.  First the foundation has to be laid then the four sides have to be completed and last, but not least of all, the top has to be put on.  The cube or hexagon proves exactly the law which works because of time and space in the market.  When a building is put up it is built according to a square or hexagon,  It has four walls or four sides, a bottom and a top: therefore, it is a cubeThe cube is a 3 Dimensional object that looks like a hexagon when it is viewed on a 2 Dimensional page/chart – Gann produced a hexagon chart!  Gann’s references to the 4th Dimension happened in the latter part of his life in the 1950’s – so he was not using this when he made his 1909 wheat 120 trade prediction – Gann also produced a Master Calculator that overlaid a chart which lots of geometrical lines, he produced this to see the other dimensions hidden within the 2 D chart
  • “The Master calculator locates the Corner stone, the key stone and the cap stone for price and time trend.  It proves the master number and master time factor and shows how and why they work on price” “The Master calculator proves 9 divisions of time from one centre or time factor and shows at a glance whether price of stocks or commodities are in the weak or strong position” – The stones Gann refers to are Egyptian and can be found in pyramids – Masons also refer to them and have them in buildings they build with ceremonies at the laying of the corner stone as previously mentioned in the first part of this blog post and why I linked in to Egyptians!!!!!!!  This is another area I am working on as I think this is the key.  Gann only mentions this once or twice in his entire works but I think it’s absolutely crucial – I’ll link this in to Gann’s Square of Nine in future posts.
  • There is so much rubbish and speculation out there as to Gann’s methods and YET – NO-ONE has come close to replicating Gann’s success.  I am under the belief that out there somewhere there is a series of letters from Gann to a personal private student to whom he’s divulged his exact method, we’ve yet to find or see such a letter as Gann made his student sign a confidentiality clause or such copies may simply not exist!  I’m also of the opinion that Gann might never of revealed his exact methods – there is absolutely nothing in his courses that back up his Wheat 120 call – the methods he reveals don’t allow you to make such calls and hundred’s of traders have since tried to look for such a method WITHOUT success

I’ve shown you that Freemasonry is not as clear cut as you might think – this has been proven in Wren trying to model London on the S Tree! and when he failed the newly found USA incorporated it – going waaaaay off piste – did you know that America is actually referred to in Scottish text (Freemasonry of course!) DECADES before it was “officially” discovered by Europeans!

I’ll stop here as I could just keep on going as there’s too much material around.

Apologies for any typo’s, grammatical errors etc – this document has not been proof read and I don’t intend to do so.

Why you don’t need to know much

Why you don’t need to know much to make a decent return from the markets.

ALL you really need is a method that on average provides you with half decent returns.

This means that you don’t need to know everything about the markets -It is true that it might take you ages to work out what works and what doesn’t but when you sit back and look at what works and what doesn’t you are likely to say to yourself “If only I knew that when I first started out!”

All you do then is EXPLOIT that method(s) EVERY time it shows up ACROSS a number of different markets – THIS is the part that is hardest as it involves work and action, but its the only way to outsmart the industry and prosper.

Let’s assume you have 20 years (in time) to build funds, you have modest funds available – we KNOW that on average traditional fund Investing returns less than 10% per annum returns, so it’s only worth risking money to try to make more than 10%.

Many methods out there return a small % per trade, this MEANS that to make decent returns you have to repeat over many markets many times, but if you found a method that returned half decent % returns per trade then you don’t need to take as many trades/positions.

What ever your methods here are some compounded returns over 20 years assuming differing starting amounts and % annual returns:


  • 20% Annual return = £191,688
  • 25% Annual return = £433,681
  • 30% Annual return = £950,248


  • 20% Annual return = £383,376
  • 25% Annual return = £867,362
  • 30% Annual return = £1,900,496

As you can see the OBVIOUS thing you need to do is research and see IF there are any methods out there where you could possibly make those sorts of returns year on year rather than just being a buy and hold investor.

The REASON a Buy and Hold Investor makes on average <10% is because they SIT through down turns, when you do that it then takes more % gain to get back to the highs – so if a market drops 50% you then NEED the market to gain 100% from the bottom of the drop to get back to break even to the point it dropped from! and we all know the market does not move 100% in a few weeks it then takes time to recover and get back to break-even

So you can see that you don’t have to be constantly funding accounts, if you do it right and get it right from the start you can have mega returns over the years from very little upfront funding! That my friends IS the smart way to Invest/Trade.

I’m producing some courses this year that show you methods whereby you should be able to obtain the returns stated above, so keep an eye out for the promotional work coming through on those in the months ahead and I’ve created a set=-ups tab on the site too where access can be obtained.

Good luck and may the markets shine on you


12%profit return from a 3.14% price move?

Your’e kidding me right?

Gann said DECADES AGGGOOOOOOOOOO “Make big profits off small risks” – Nowhere did he say make average profits from big risks.

Chart says it all


Just so we’re clear – I have NOT revealed exactly how you do this or how often this happens and don’t plan to in this post – I am creating a set-up on this though and it will be available to purchase in 2017 (sometime)
