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,

Crude oil looks cheap, doesn't it?

Crude oil looks cheap, doesn't it?

Just because something looks inexpensive doesn't mean that it's necessarily a buy. It's very possible for crude oil (NYMEX_CL) to rally up into the low 70s, but you have to remember that it would still be in a bear market. We have seen very few counter trend rallies in this market since it began its amazing fall from grace. The liquidation of the hedge funds and speculators from this market pushed crude down so much that OPEC had to have an emergency meeting. During that meeting, they agreed to cut production by a total of 1.5 million barrels a day. I don't believe for a second that they are going to follow through with that plan. I don't think its every going to happen.

OPEC is now between a rock and a hard place, and is being forced to continue pumping oil because of other financial commitments. Most if not all of the OPEC countries have recently put economic programs in place, all of which require further funding. These economic programs are now having to be financed from a lower income stream. I doubt seriously, giving the players in OPEC, that they will live up to their word to cut output levels. They need the money much like a drug addict needs a fix.

I expect certain countries (Venezuela and Russia) to continue pumping as much crude as they can, so that their socioeconomic infrastructure does not come to a screeching halt. As I have said before, trading this market with a technical program and a game plan far exceeds just looking at the fundamentals. The fundamentals always come in late and after the fact. Market action, and market action alone, determines the trend for not only crude oil, but also for all of the other markets.

Remember, when you are trading against the major trend you should always use positions smaller than if you are trading with the major trend. I believe that the conservative play would be to allow crude oil to rally, and then sell the rally when you have a technical signal to do so.

Every success,
