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...

Several of the 3X leveraged ETF instruments are listed in the optimized portfolio upon request, but be very cautious if you trade any of the 3X leveraged ETF instruments, the price decays rapidly and is not a true investment market, it's only a near term hedge instrument...

The optimized portfolio began on 7/11/17 with 348.44 YTD points gained...

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...

A good number of markets were bought today on buy stops... all of the bear market instruments were stopped out today... I take every signal...

Also, many ongoing position stops were revised upwards today, check on your markets...

I hope no one is allergic to making money!!!

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...

SP SEPTEMBER mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the September SP at 2443.75 as of 8/29/17 on a VP buy signal...

The Two Main Model Trade Rules For All VP Trades:

1) Any time the market trades above any overhead VP price and then closes below it, this would confirm a new main model sell signal...
2) Any time the market trades below any lower VP price and then closes above it, this would confirm a new main model buy signal...

MAJOR - - 2524.607 and must close below that price on Wednesday, October 4th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2495.21

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2470.00

minor - - 2443.88

minor - - 2412.55

minor - - 2395.69

MAJOR - - 2396.18 and must close above that price on Wednesday, September 20th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

MAJOR - - 2353.39 and must close above that price on Thursday, September 14th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

The above price map is listed in descending order of all currently active vertical prices above and below the market... today's closing price is also included to provide you with a GPS type reading of where the market currently is in relation to all VP points on both sides of the market...

PLEASE NOTE: It is vitally important to know where the market is on this map at all times, the main model buy and sell signals are generated only from this VP map... the trade rules, which you probably already know by now, are very simple and are explained below...

THE LT PRICE AND MOMENTUM GRAPH FOR THE SP:

I think the upcurl in the momentum line is more visible today... it looks like this market is poised for another rally from here...

DECEMBER GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the December gold at 1308.70 as of 8/31/17 on a VP buy signal...

The Two Main Model Trade Rules For All VP Trades:

1) Any time the market trades above any overhead VP price and then closes below it, this would confirm a new main model sell signal...
2) Any time the market trades below any lower VP price and then closes above it, this would confirm a new main model buy signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1328.70

MAJOR - - 1317.29 and must close below that price on Tuesday, September 5th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

MAJOR - - 1310.72 and must close below that price on Friday, September 1st to confirm a new main model sell signal... APPROACHING FRIDAY

minor - - 1308.74

minor - - 1300.27

minor - - 1292.29

minor - - 1269.97

MAJOR - - 1255.72 and must close above that price on Tuesday, September 12th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

SVP - - none

The above is a price map in descending order of all currently active vertical prices above and below the market... those in red were generated on previously confirmed buy signals, those in green were generated on previously confirmed sell signals... today's closing price is also included to provide you with a GPS type reading of where the market currently is in relation to all VP points on both sides of the market...

THE LT PRICE AND MOMENTUM GRAPH FOR GOLD:

Seems like nothing will stop this market now!!!
