Trading stocks isn’t for everyone, in fact there are studies that show most trading accounts go bust within the first year they are opened. Some say as many as 90 percent of all traders lose money, but most brokers will tell you it’s far less, they claim 75 percent, which is still a big number, I suspect it’s somewhere in between those two numbers. No matter how you look at it, the odds are against people becoming profitable traders.
Many of us that invest in Apple, wish there was a reliable way to trade around our account, to keep a core position and protect that core by trading a portion of it through it’s ups and downs. The objective is to grow that core through those ups and downs, as the analysts have their way.
Trading Apple should be a delight as it has all the characteristics a trader desires, great volatility, incredible liquidity, and huge runs. Unfortunately those runs have been both to the upside and the downside, making it difficult for traders to make any real headway.
Well, what if there was a way to realize that dream of trading Apple and making consistent profits, staying on the winning side, regardless which way the stock is moving?
Perhaps that day is here. Perhaps there’s a coach out there that can give you the direction you need to build your core position and start making those Apple dividend payments meaningful. The thing is, the coach is not a person, it’s a computer program that is tuned to price patterns that have existed with Apple stock over the past three decades. So, unlike most automated traders that try to evaluate where a stock is going by doing some complicated technical analysis, which usually ends up failing, this program has uncovered patterns that exist and continue to be revealed like clockwork.
The interesting thing is that these patterns seem to exist in a wide variety of stocks, it just takes a the knowledge of data mining and pattern recognition to uncover these little gems. Then, simply mirror the pattern with the appropriate stock position. Apple has some of the most consistent and well defined patterns of most stocks, and so these trading robots can see those patterns where most people just see randomness.
So, how good are these traders? Well, they are much better than a coin flip. In fact they can give traders that choose to follow them a real definitive edge. And they are robust, able to trade with an edge for decades with consistent performance. They don’t stop working after just a few months like other automated trading systems do, and then need to be reconfigured.
A demonstration of these traders will take place on YouTube. The systems will run live, in near real-time on a Google Hangout for anyone to observe. You can even participate in a live discussion with the moderator of the hangout, and inventor of the trading system, Ernie Varitimos. That’s me, by the way. I will be showing the systems trade for the next several weeks. The Hangout, which is kind of like a meeting that is open to the world, will open up every trading day around 9am EST and shut down about a half hour after the market closes, or about 4:30pm.
I will be demonstrating three automated trading systems that exploit various underlying market patterns. Here are the systems, click on them to see more detail and put a reminder in your calendar to come and watch them in action.
The goal is to demonstrate that there is a way to beat the market, by uncovering behaviors that exist in stocks, and have existed for many years, they just needed a little data mining to uncover them. Perhaps the efficient Market Hypothesis isn’t so efficient after all.
