One cent commissions were charged and cash balances assumed 3 month t-bill rates. Any dividends received along the way were included in the test results.

What TradingMarkets Does and How We Trade

We buy weakness (pullbacks) and we sell strength (run-ups).

Most everything we do is quantified with at least 10 years of rigorous testing. We have done this with numerous systems and methodologies we have published (and still trade) including: Always Buy Value (ABV), TradingMarkets Capital Appreciation Program (TMCAP), Raptor-I, Raptor-II, Advanced Windows, PowerRatings, R3/R4, The TradingMarkets E-mini Market Timing Course, The TradingMarkets Aggressive Momentum Method, Raptor-III, and now the 5x5x5 Portfolio Method.

We use these methodologies with corporate money, personal money, and private investment money. This does not guarantee that we, nor anyone else, will make money in the future. This is how we trade; it’s been successful for us, and for many repeat customers.

We provide a money-back guarantee on our courses if you don t make

money over a one-year period of time from the purchase date of the program.

Special Bonus

How Do You Protect Yourself?

Many top hedge funds and successful proprietary firms trade being hedged.

In this course, you will learn is how to lessen your risk from the overall stock market by being long stocks which have had historical edges while at the same time protecting yourself by being short the market index.

For example, if you are long 60% of your portfolio in stocks, you will at the same time be short 60% with a stock market index. If you are long 90% of your portfolio in stocks, you will at the same time be short 90% with a stock market index. You will always be short an equal dollar amount to what you are long.

You have the piece of mind of knowing that your portfolio is now hedged from stock market declines.

Why does the 5x5x5 Portfolio Method work?

There is ample statistical evidence that stocks tend to move from oversold to overbought conditions and vice-versa.

The 5x5x5 Portfolio Method uses a systematic, quantified approach to identify when stocks are very oversold. We then enter these stocks at levels which have historically risen. Then, after the stocks rally, we look to take advantage of the rally by exiting into strength (the average holding period has been approximately 6 days). On average nearly 3 out of every 4 signals have been profitable since 1995, with the winning trades averaging just over 10.9% d

over and over again each trading day.
