We had another great week with most of the Model Portfolios showing good gains and some showing really good gains. If you look at the markets, many are trending strongly and that is when we do very well. After a recent drawdown, we are rapidly heading back up which is totally expected and the main characteristic of a highly robust trading method. Our algorithm cannot be outperformed by you or anyone else. It simply mirrors the market better than anything in trading, and the proof of this contention is that we make a lot of money with it. We have seven (7) open Mega-trades in the 226k Model Portfolio and it appears that we are headed to new all-time highs. The 17k Mini-Micro closed at an all-time high this week which proves our algorithm can make money even trading a small portfolio of markets. We make big money by being long term position trend traders- nothing more-nothing less. You need to be 100% disciplined to replicate the Model Portfolios and the more you deviate from full discipline, the worse your performance.

If you have not matched the staggering profits in the Model Portfolios, you are assuming the role of the fortune teller/forecaster/futures analyst depicted above. When are you going to learn that price, not you or anyone else, forecasts the future?
If you have tinkered with and cherry-picked which trades you are going to make, you have violated the rules and are flying on the seat of your pants. You will crash and burn at some point- without rules, you will be doomed eventually.
On a more positive note, we literally made a fortune this week. If you did not, you are lacking in discipline and you need to work on that.
First of all, the best way to see how the Model Portfolios are performing is the number of open mega-trades. In the 226k, we have eleven of the twenty-nine markets we trade with an open trade profit of $3,000.00 or more. The other Model Portfolios are stuffed with huge open winning trades as well.
The best news is that all but one of the Model Portfolios made historic equity high weekly closes. This shows you the incredible power of trend following. Our algorithm cannot miss a major move (we have missed none) and we are able to elongate a winning trade like no other method I know. Look at the trading metrics- they are literally out of this world.
We make money by being long term position trend traders- nothing more-nothing less. You need to be 100% disciplined to replicate the Model Portfolios and the more you deviate from full discipline, the worse your performance.
Sell April Gold and Sell June Gold (16k/28k/17k/5k). (This is a reversal and roll-over).
Trades can be entered during the electronic night session or in the morning. There is some flexibility in terms of when you enter a new trade and this is because our profits are not marginal. Trade prices shown on the Model Portfolio spreadsheet are what I get for my own trades. Yours can be better or worse.
Futures Trading is easier than ever!
If you've always wanted to trade futures, my new futures trading model is for you, as I teach the basics to help you better your trading and investing life.
Many of my students don't want to invest in futures markets because they feel it is too complicated, too costly, or that a truck is going to pull into their front yards ready to dump the 5000 bushels of corn they mistakenly purchased. Of course, the vocabulary may also be new and intimidating, and some brokerages might not be tailored to supporting smaller traders who are just learning to trade in futures.
I'm happy to say that futures trading is easier than ever, and my advice and tools can quickly help you become comfortable with regular futures trading.
My algorithmic trading platform is designed for all investors, including those with limited experience, limited time, and limited funds.
Because you are investing to take advantage of both ups and downs in the market, all of your money is working for you instead of sitting on the sidelines waiting for the right moment to buy and sell.
You will quickly become more confident as you see your portfolio grow and diversify, and the more you diversify, the safer your overall portfolio will be, further increasing your confidence.
Get started diversifying your portfolio with futures. It's not difficult, and you will learn how to take advantage of a very profitable model of investing.
