NOTE: FUTURES TRADING INVOLVES SUBSTANTIAL RISK!
I know how hard it is to find good trading methods. A disciplined approach is essential. Since 1970 I have developed and marketed trading methods that contain no hype, filler, or nonsense. Just great ideas with specific, yet simple instructions to make them work for you! The dozen or so that I have devised are designed to inspire you to improve your trading and discover new ideas as you become a consistent and successful trader. Importantly, you do not have to spend thousands of dollars to do it!
Below are my featured list of SIMPLE, YET EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUES that are guaranteed to help you find a comfortable, disciplined trading style. All are available in easy to read, no nonsense papers.
THE THREE-IN-ONE UNIVERSAL REVERSING SYSTEM (originally called Soybeans #1) was developed as a stop protection mechanism, but markets often kept going once these stops were hit. No trend assumptions! 100% objective. Conservative. Consistent. Simple math on hand calculator! Applied daily for five years as a reversing technique = hypothetical* returns of $75,289 per Soybean contract. A great performer in the 1994 weather market! Easy to try your own variations. I have just added two variations. Three systems, one low price! #3 alone is worth the entire price.
Read what Don D from California wrote on Nov 2, 1996: "Just a note
let you know that the 3-in-1 Universal Trader has certainly been
well in Soybeans!" An understatement, to say the least!. Again Don
on Dec 17, 1997, "In Beans I use #3 and it is a consistent winner.
there will be periods of large drawdown as in the one quarter you
with the NYFE, but it always ends up ahead at the end of the year. The
biggest obstacle is us--the individual trader--sticking with those
as they occur."
Yes, DD is doing well with the Universal Reversing Systems.You ought
to look into it too! (Click to see the Soybean
#3 trades for 1995). I followed FIVE markets with the #1 system in
daily letter. Check out the links on my homepage,
provide at least several months of CURRENT daily data on those markets.
Remember to ask for the FREE trial as well.
Click to see how the original #1 tested several years ago in the S&P
Futures! I could post more, year after year after year, but it
would just be redundant and would not prove anything except that it
just keeps working. Remember that I wrote and conceived this idea in
1972-1973. I like it as well now as I did then.
BONDS #1 This method was inspired by enthusiastic users of Soybeans #1. They asked for a conservative technique to trade bonds that would capitalize on the enormous potential of the this market. Written in 1994, it generated $6,937.50 in hypothetical* profits on 37 trades (19 profits, 18 losses, 3 ticks slippage/commission subtracted).
Mike C, a broker, uses this to trade bonds, soybeans, CanDollar, and coffee. A.C., a Senior Analyst, called to say: "That was a great trade in the bonds. It more than paid for all my years of subscriptions to Marketline...thanks and congratulations."
THE ULTIMATE STOCK MARKET INDICATOR. Unbelievably easy to use and often so good that you can't believe it. I call it the TRADER'S DREAM. That dream is to have one reliableindicator that would say when to act in the stock market. Handy for stock index futures, option strategies, or mutual fund timing. A must for survival and success in todays volatile markets.
"I'm loving this Ultimate indicator
Stan !!! Thanks a lot !" A.S.M.
"Stan, I wanted to follow up
regarding the Ultimate Stock Market Volume Indicator I purchased... I
thought I would pass along the Motorola chart for your observation. I
could not be more pleased implementing your routine...." B.T.,
then BT wrote again at a later date: "I
cannot help but keep coming back to you
and thanking you for selling me the Ultimate Stock Market
Indicator. It is the closest indicator to the Holy Grail I have
found.... -- B. Thompson, IL
This unique interpretation of volume will open your eyes to trading
possibilities. It is simple to use and takes just seconds a day to use.

GREAT NEWS / NEW VERSION 3
AVAILABLE: In a further effort to obtain signals in times when
signals appear justified but are not generated (within trend buy
signals are sometimes lacking in version 2), I have incorporated a new
statistical filter to generate additional signals. The improved version
3 appears to further enhance the trading opportunities. Witness the
signals generated when version 3 signals are added to the version 2
signals by looking at this linked chart.
The signals over a recent 6 month period in 2005 are outstanding. That
said, any of the three versions stand alone as very useful tools. Still
not convinced? Here are signals from April-Aug
2006. What's happening right now???
for current signals.
BRAINSTORM II A bear market bonanza. This often overlooked method is a real winner. Based on an observation I made about market behavior in the 1970's, it is a superb way to capitalize again and again on any and all bear markets -- stocks, indexes or futures. Violent rallies are characteristic of bear markets. This will show you how to find the key sell signals that stand outlike a sore thumb if you know what to look for. Pinpoints multiple selling opportunities in every down market. Just take a look at the Coffee 2000 Futures chart. Outstanding signals plus it comes complete with entry, stop protection, and exit parameters. A great complement to the Stock Market Indicator. Really good thinking here!
When used in conjunction with the other Marketline approaches such as the Ultimate Indicator, Trading Point, and Turning Point, you will have a host of unique tools to ensure your survival and success in the difficult and volatile times that will surely come. The Turning Point "Seven Day Exhaustion Rule" was the one indicator I know of that signaled the low of the 1987 stock market crash the day before it happened!
entry system offers a common sense approach to the popular 20 day
average. A great technique to quickly get on board an intermediate
An exceptional value! Check this graphic with signals (click).
WAUGH-SCILLATOR Also called THE FUND MANAGER, this easy to construct oscillator was developed by a veteran livestock and grain trader "to make my life simple" It uniquely anticipates turning points. Just buy or sell at the market every time this indicator changes direction. Great trading aid for any market! Lots of examples presented. Several customers have incorporated this one into their charting programs.
TRADING POINT A great new idea I developed in 1995. An excellent trend-friendly trader with frequent trades and very reasonable stops. Tells you exactly when to enter a market, the exact price to enter, and the maximum risk that you should take. It also shows you the preferred methods to manage your risk and set your objectives for the trade. Click here for a graphic displaying several easily tradable sell signals in the Crude Oil and Heating Oil markets.
When I searched the charts and put this together I was hard pressed to find situations in which this one did not produce comfortable risk-reward opportunities and excellent trading results. JT of Tucson recently indicated he would like more systems and wrote, "I have been using your Trading Point technique for some time now. It has proved to be quite successful".
TURNING POINT Two unique techniques telling you when you want to be sure to be out of an overextended market. Top and bottom pickers will find this one of particular interest. Pattern recognition traders will appreciate this viewpoint. The 7 Day Exhaustion Rule is a great bottom/top picker. Just CLICK to see the 1998 Bond Market! Some additional Exhaustion Rule and a Turning Point variation in the bonds are plotted side by side right here (click) On the linked charts, note that blue bars indicate buy alert, and red bars indicate sell alert.You will find the Coffee market signals just as interesting.
CATTLE TRADER A modified reversing system that finds high probability cattle trades. You might call this a cherry picker. Just waits for a certain pattern and goes the next day if the market confirms. Could be applied to other markets that tend to congest or trade back and forth frequently. Here is a great testimonial from Dusty N. of Albuquerque: "A couple of months ago I bought Cattletrader System from you, and I want you to know that it really worked out, as well as working on stock indices...thanx for giving me the best idea I have ever had for $65."
COTTON TRADER A short term pattern recognition technique that works nicely in Cotton. Comes with two methods to accept profits (Cotton I and II). Gets you in and out quickly. Great results in 1994! If used with Soy System protective stops can often put you on the right side of a good move. Not just for cotton, it could be considered for other markets as well.
