94% Winners & Triple Digit Returns (Q4 Results-New Video)

A year and a half ago we decided to track the results of our "Trade Triangle" technology in six different markets. The markets we decided to trade were corn (CBOT_C), wheat (CBOT_W), soybeans (CBOT_ZS), crude oil (NYMEX_CL), gold (XAUUSDO) and finally the dollar index (NYBOT_DX). We picked these markets at random, not because we could see into the future, but because these markets historically have had prolonged and therefore profitable moves in the past. Most big markets have one or two moves every year. Our "Trade Triangle" technology allows you to catch these moves and stay on top of the market.

I have truly been surprised and amazed that we have had such big profits, especially in the last two quarters. When I helped co-create MarketClub, I knew we had something great... but even these results would astound anyone.

In Q3 of '08 we had a phenomenal return and one that I did not think we would see again. However, in Q4 of '08, not only did we exceed the Q3 results but we did it in different markets which is quite remarkable. This underscores our fundamental belief that investors/traders should be diversified into several different markets.

In Q4 of '08, the results we had in corn were significantly less them in Q3. Non-the less, they were positive. Our Q4 results in the wheat market were almost double that of our previous quarter's profits. Soybeans on the other hand proved to be very positive, but not as positive as Q3 which was our best quarter ever for that commodity. The star of the show, or I should say the quarter, was crude oil. Crude oil produced an astounding gain of $40,040 per contract in the quarter. This return was practically double our Q3 results and by far our best returns of any market in this quarter. You may want to watch our Q3 movie and see what we were saying about crude oil at that time.

Gold proved to be just that, golden, as the yellow metal produced another stellar return in the quarter. Lastly, the dollar index showed it's best returns in 6 quarters.

Q4 of '08 turned out to be a record quarter producing $78,142 in gains before commissions. This was our best quarter ever and quite frankly it was more than we had expected.

The return on capital for the last six quarters was 624%. The number of winning quarters (for all six markets) was 34 out of 36, that's a 94.44% winning streak. Losing quarters for the six commodities totaled to just 5.5%. (Special note: We are trading six markets and six quarters gives us a universe of 36 individual quarterly results to judge our results by.)

Watch new video here:

In the 6 quarters we have traded the six commodities listed above, we have never seen a losing quarter dollar wise or quarter wise (no pun intended).

Certainly there is no guarantee what Q1 of '09 will bring. Certainly the markets we are in have a tendency to move, therefore they should present opportunities to make good profits in the future.

Take a look at this short video that I have prepared to show you the results. I will go through some of the actual signals that we dynamically generated with  our "Trade Triangle" technology. The "Trade Triangles" are just one tool of our MarketClub service.

You may also want to look at our earlier Q3 video and check out our past signals. We use the same formula and same approach each quarter for the markets we are tracking.

Enjoy the videos. If you have any questions about our results, please give us a call at 1-800-538-7424. As many of you know, brokers love us because we are not brokers, we simply provide educational material to help traders improve their trading.

Every success in trading in 2009,

Don't ever do this ...

Bad Trades

A bad trade is like a dead fish: The longer you keep it, the worse it stinks.

Good Trades

When a trade is making money, the market is telling them they are right and to let the position ride.

Don't ever do this ...

Winners don't add to, or "average", losing positions. They dump the trade and go looking for a new opportunity. Successful investors may add to the winning trades. When ahead, they press their advantage while remembering that at any time the market can turn on them and prove them wrong.

In trading keep your mind clear and do not get emotional about a trade. Remember you are not married to a stock rather you are in the dating game.

The #1 Account Killer: Emotion

The #1 Account Killer: Emotion

Well, I have to say that emotions always lose out to a solid game plan when it comes to the markets. Here's a recent example; we received a buy signal for gold (XAUUSDO) at $905 basis spot on May 19th. The gold market ran up and reached an intra-day high of $935.30 before it subsequently collapsed. I'm sure many traders held on thinking that the sharp pullback was just a pullback and that gold would soon regain its footing and once again go higher. Why subject yourself to that kind guessing and emotional type trading when there's a better way? Using the MarketClub's non-emotional "Trade Triangle" technology we were able to exit the market with a small profit of $10.25 an ounce and rest on the sidelines as gold collapsed. There's really no room for emotion in the market place. This is one of the greatest downfalls of most traders. You need to go into the market with a solid game plan, this could be in the form of MarketClub's "Trade Triangles" or it could be another form of discipline, but having a solid game plan does give you a reference point to work from. When you are making trading decisions about the market while it is still trading is generally not a good idea. Here's a recent trading recap:

Gold (XAUUSDO): We are out of the gold buy trade from $905 on 5/19 to 5/27 at $915.25 for a profit of $10.25. We are resting on the sidelines based on "Trade Triangle" technology. See video.

Crude Oil (CL.N08): We exited our long July position from $125.63 purchased on 5/15 at 126.90 on 5/28 (original signal $128.69) for a gain of $1.27. We are out of this market and on the sidelines based on our "Trade Triangle" technology. See video.

Whether the "Trade Triangles" turned out to be correct or incorrect, they do provide you with discipline and a reference point that you can hang your hat on. "Trade Triangles" are consistent and not a willy-nilly approach to the market. Using MarketClub's "Trade Triangles" gives you confidence as they represent a defined, measured approach that if followed consistently will make you money in the long run.

Every success in the markets and in life,

It is a no-brainer ...

It’s a no-brainer.

If I've heard that expression once, I have heard it a thousand times from traders over the years.

While trading in the pits of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange early in my career, that expression was a common phrase used by many of my fellow traders on the trading floor. Many traders are saying that MarketClub is a no-brainer, we prefer to think of MarketClub as a refuge for smart traders.

Today we are looking at the forex market and in particular the EURO/YEN cross. This cross first came to our attention in MarketClub’s portfolio alerts system. So, today I decided to spend a little time and analyze this market for you.

As you may know the foreign exchange market is a $3 trillion a year market, making it the biggest market in the world. This game is played 24 hours a day, six days a week. The EURO/YEN cross has had a particularly big move over the last several years, the question now is: is this cross going to continue higher?

In my detailed analysis of the EURO/YEN cross, you will see my reasons and my analysis for why this market could be beginning a big move right now.

We'll also be looking at this market scientifically using MarketClub’s “Trade Triangle” technology. This technology has enjoyed a great deal of success in forex as well as other markets. The “Trade Triangle” approach is a totally driven, non-emotional way to look at any market including the EURO/YEN cross.

I'm sure you'll get a lot out of this seven minute video as it will help you further understand how the markets really work.

Every success in trading and in life,
