Editorial Reviews


Our methodology and trading algorithm employs rigorous risk control. The use of our stop prices will cash you out of a trade that is going against your position. This preserves capital and acts as a mechanism to lock in gains in a winning trade. It is our job to make money by riding a trend as long as it lasts.

You have access to disciplined daily stop-loss pricing as well as to a profit-locking mechanism, giving you peace of mind. Bull or bear market, our systems are designed to maximize the odds in your favor when you open and close a position. A successful trader must have a completely unique way of trading to achieve a healthy, consistent return without large drawdowns or nasty whip-saws from the market.

We make trading decisions daily after market closing, when the chaos stops. We want our investors to ignore the daily drama of the market and the financial pundits in the news making predictions to sell news and airtime.

Checking our position and Stop prices takes 10 minutes after market hours. Our nightly updates give you ample time to execute orders at market opening the next day. Therefore, there is no second guessing, fear or greed involved. You just need to be disciplined about executing the trade and updating the Stop prices with your on-line discount brokerage firm.

The typical argument that if you missed 10 best market days out of the last X years would mean you missed the bulk of the returns, does not hold water when you consider the risk associated with being in the market the whole time to capture those 10 days versus timing the market.

The text is logically structured, straight-forward in terms of prose, and walks the reader through the thought processes and testing approach of the Author while acknowledging certain limitations including the limited data history of ETF's.

An additional note is that my copy was not a hard cover as Amazon suggests, but a soft cover. I would consider this to be a good primer on a professional approach to trading ETF's with a Trend-Following set of methods.

It is going to get you interested, guide you to the water, but you are going to have to drink. It is not a get rich in 5 easy steps book, but rather a treatise to hopefully spark your imagination and inspire you to go forth and grow with the seeds provided. My one critical point would be that the Author does provide the data for his findings but it is only available at the moment from a private customer site of the excellent trading tool he uses to do the analysis.

There is no data supplied with the book itself. All in all this is a great starting point and a welcome addition to the library. I am presently working to put together a simple timing system on a diversified portfolio of assets. For anyone looking to do the same, this book is well worth reading. The systems and concepts are similar but not identical to those discussed in The Ivy Portfolio. The author goes into great detail on the systems' performance and shows how altering various aspects start date, system parameters, asset classes, etc would have altered past performance.

While such past performance is no guarantee of future success, the book does an excellent job of displaying the robustness of the reasonably simple systems presented. It gives me much confidence to move forward with a simple system that I believe will be effective over time. The author also shows ways to dial up absolute returns if desired and how doing so alters risk-adjusted returns and drawdown.

Perhaps the greatest take away for me was the author's demonstration that widely diversifying globally treating the US as "one of many" and diversifying to deeper granularity has been effective for such systems in the past. This was a hunch I had, so I was glad to see the author had some proof that this was indeed true, at least historically.

The confidence I have gained is well worth the cost of this book. See all 8 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
