HOW TO USE THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO

The entire listing as presented is a widely diversified portfolio of varied market interests, and we know that wide diversification is the key to reducing market risk in any portfolio... therefore, the key to legitimate long term profit with this portfolio is to have positions widely and even distributed among as many of the different market groups as possible... in other words, do not focus on only one market or favor one market over another, do not attempt to pick winners and losers with a heavy position in one market and a light position in another, one should invest the same dollar amount into each position...

Commit between 2% and 2.5% of your entire account to any one position and no more or less than that, this way your dollar risk will be evenly distributed among all markets...

Participate in as many markets as possible, treat them all the same, this will further reduce your risk and increase your likelihood for profit...

Upon entry of any new position, the initial exit stop is a 2% risk for that position, plus or minus a few ticks... if you get stopped out, then that's the end of that trade, do not attempt to chase that market, just wait for the next signal opportunity, it will come soon enough... if you are not stopped out, then the trailing exit stop will rise as the market also rises... this will allow you maximum gains for any active position for as long as that market rallies...

About 1 in 6 or 1 in 7 new positions are stopped out at the initial exit stop, the other positions quickly recoup that 2% loss and generates further gains...

All the precious metals markets were stopped out for super gains on those trades... the optimized model allow the position to remain ongoing for as long as possible until weakness begin to show itself... as well, all the stock market indices are long with solid gains so far...

ALL EXIT STOPS LISTED BELOW SHOULD BE ENTERED ONLY AFTER THE INITIAL BUY STOP HAS BEEN TRIGGERED AND THE POSITION IS ACTIVE...

ALL OPEN POSITIONS HAVE THEIR EXIT STOPS LISTED FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY, THEY MAY NOT CHANGE EVERY DAY...

THERE IS NO LONGER ANY EXCUSE FOR ANYONE NOT TO MAKE MONEY IN THESE MARKETS, JUST FOLLOW THE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO AND BE ON YOUR PATH TO FINANCIAL GROWTH...

If you're having difficulty trading the near term VP model, then take a serious look at the optimized portfolio, you will definitely make money, it is easy to follow, tried and proven, and with no stress, I use it myself primarily... if you have any questions on how to use it, then email me and we can arrange a time to review your personal trading strategy...

NEW BUY SIGNALS TO WATCH FOR TOMORROW

We have more than plenty now in a wide variety of groups, there's a limit to how many I could handle, many thanks for your great suggestions...

Modest action in the portfolio today...... I take every signal...

To follow the optimized portfolio, there is no thinking required!!! If you're having difficulty following the fast moving VP signals, then you should consider following the optimized portfolio...

DIVERSIFY AND REDUCE YOUR RISK...

If you see an error in today's listing, just let me know, I went over each market very carefully after the close, but I could miss something, thanks...

THE VP PRICE MAP FOR TOMORROW

The VP map tells you everything you need to know, consult the map daily... knowing the map and the two key trading rules will make you a much more savvy trader, so it is extremely important to be familiar with the VP map...

Secondary Vertical Prices (SVP) are for the aggressive trader who is looking for an additional edge on additional exhaustion points... you will notice that the market responds as well to the SVP as to the standard VP points and are traded the same, but for now the main model will use only the standard VP points for official main model signals...
