Ema trading, a real consistent approach

I want to write this review because in my long career of trading I only met a few people who truly are what they claim to be, ie a successful trader. Patrick is one of them. I started following his trades and ideas since mid-July 2019 on Ticker Tocker. What do I like about his approach? Patrick is very methodical, he approaches every market from the same trading philosophy. When the rubber band of an asset is too fat stretched, being overbought or oversold, that’s when the vc pmi indicator kicks in. Every day he lays out the different levels of extreme prices BEFORE the market opens. When prices reach one of these levels then he becomes focused on trying to trade the reversal of these levels. No second guessing, no fear of missing out, just methodically applying his logic and trade management.

Limited Markets

By focusing on a handful of markets (primarily the metals) you gain insight where the important historical levels have been, thereby eventually reinforcing the daily/weekly levels which are in play and teaching you a consistent methodology. Einstein said that a fool keeps on making the same errors over and over again, thereby expecting different results. With Patrick it is the reverse, he keeps on doing the same good approach over and over again, getting the same positive output. That is called success. Keep on doing what you are good at.

Steady profits…

Consistency: By taking most of his signals since July and risking appropriate conservative position size I was able to realize around 30% return with a small drawdown of around 10 % during the summer doll drums. Winning percentage was +/- 70 % with a nice winn to loss ratio of 2.14. These features result in a nice smooth rising equity curve, which is a traders dream. Steady profits, no big drawdowns, creating alpha. ( S&P up 8,2 % during the same period)
There’s no BS claims with Patrick like so many con artists who‘s only goal is to get your money in their pockets. We all know the traders porn of luxury life style, sportscars, jet planes , paying for student loans and all the bla bla bla which they use to mislead people into believing that making money is as easy as just following their “secrets “ and bullet proof methods which will generate 4 digits of return. Not so with Ema trading! What you see is what you get! And yes you have to work for it. That reminds me of a saying that only in the dictionary success precedes work.

There are no secrets in his methodology

On the contrary: He just started a daily live early bird webinar on Ticker Tocker where he explains what he sees in the markets according to his approach. It is the viewer’s choice to take his advices and apply it to the markets, but every day you have the possibility to get a deeper understanding of the ema2trade algorithm. To conclude I think that Patrick in the end teaches you how to fish instead of feeding you fish every day which is worthless. You still have your own responsibility as a trader. I think it will be only a matter of time when real traders with real results see the value of the Ticker Tocker community. Finally a website which a trader can trust. A rare gem…

Trading in options, stocks, securities, currencies, futures, commodities, index futures or other financial instruments involves the risk of loss. Depending on the financial instruments, strategies or leverage employed, losses may exceed the amount initially invested. Neither Ticker Tocker nor any of its affiliates or related persons provides personalized investment, trading, or financial advice through the Ticker Tocker website and trading platform (singularly or collectively, the “Platform”). The content of the Ticker Tocker Platform does not include any solicitation or recommendation to buy, sell or hold an investment product.

The financial instruments, strategies and trading methodologies described on the Platform may not be suitable for any particular investor. Results of transactions described on the Platform may vary due to differences in market conditions, execution prices, the time of trade executions, fees for brokerage services, and other factors. Anyone wishing to invest should seek his or her own independent financial or professional advice. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Certain of the information presented on the Platform relates to hypothetical or simulated performance results.

The risk of loss in trading commodity interests can be substantial. you should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. in considering whether to trade or to authorize someone else to trade for you. past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.


Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. in addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.


The risk of loss in trading can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. In considering whether to trade or to authorize someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of the following:

If you purchase a commodity option you may sustain a total loss of the premium and of all transaction costs.

If you purchase or sell a commodity futures contract or sell a commodity option or engage in off-exchange foreign currency trading you may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds or security deposit and any additional funds that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain your position. If the market moves against your position, you may be called upon by your broker to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain your position. If you do not provide the requested funds within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account.

Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, when the market makes a “limit move.”

The placement of contingent orders by you or your trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.

A “spread” position may not be less risky than a simple “long” or “short” position.

The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity interest trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains.

In some cases, managed commodity accounts are subject to substantial charges for management and advisory fees. It may be necessary for those accounts that are subject to these charges to make substantial trading profits to avoid depletion or exhaustion of their assets.

You should also be aware that off-exchange foreign currency trading is not conducted in the interbank market. The funds deposited with a counterparty for such transactions will not receive the same protections as funds used to margin or guarantee exchange-traded futures and option contracts. If the counterparty becomes insolvent and you have a claim for amounts deposited or profits earned on transactions with the counterparty, your claim may not be treated as a commodity customer claim for purposes of subchapter iv of chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code and regulations thereunder. You may be a general creditor and your claim may be paid, along with the claims of other general creditors, from any monies still available after priority claims are paid. Even funds that the counterparty keeps separate from its own funds may not be safe from the claims of priority and other general creditors.

A commodity trading advisor is prohibited by law from accepting funds in the trading advisor's name from a client for trading commodity interests. You must place all funds for trading in this trading program directly with a futures commission merchant or retail foreign exchange dealer, as applicable.

This brief statement cannot disclose all the risks and other significant aspects of the commodity interest markets.
