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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

NOTE: Many of the ongoing position stops were revised upwards today, check on your markets... we have some spectacular gains so far in the stock index group, we're not giving them back...

PLEASE NOTE: There is a smaller portfolio within the optimized portfolio indicating those markets which have the best long term overall performances, you will see an asterisk next to those market symbols... for simplicity in following such a large portfolio, you could simply follow those specified market and do nearly as well...

DIVERSIFY AND REDUCE YOUR RISK... the portfolio is already booking 2018 profits!!!

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the March SP at 2821.75 as of 1/30/18 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 - - 2870.56 and must below below that price on Monday, February 16th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2857.61

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2825.75

minor - - 2821.81

MAJOR - - 2798.82 and must close above that price on Wednesday, March 7th 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:

The VP signal is long this market but the optimized long position was stopped out today... the momentum line is profoundly overbought and has now turned downward as of today...

APRIL GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now short the April gold at 1360.00 as of 1/26/18 on a VP sell 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

MAJOR - - 1359.91 and must below that price on Thursday, February 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1340.10

minor - - 1306.22

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:

The momentum line has clearly turned downward... the VP signal is short this market... the portfolio is still long on a longer term signal, watch for tomorrow...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now short the March SP at 2870.75 as of 1/28/18 on a VP sell signal...

WE JUST CLOSED OUT A LONG SP POSITION FOR 193.50 POINTS 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 - - 2870.56 and must below below that price on Monday, February 16th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2857.61

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2853.75

MAJOR - - 2818.301 and must below below that price on Wednesday, January 31st to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2811.11

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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:

Still just barely inched higher again today, but the main model is now short this market on a VP sell signal... look at how overbought this market is!!!

APRIL GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now short the April gold at 1360.00 as of 1/26/18 on a VP sell 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

MAJOR - - 1359.91 and must below that price on Thursday, February 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1345.60

minor - - 1306.22

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:

The momentum has turned downward as of today, minimally, but down... and the main model is short this market on a VP sell signal from last week...

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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... BIG GAINS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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...

THE LT PRICE AND MOMENTUM GRAPH FOR GOLD:

The longer term optimized portfolio is long the gold, the near term VP signal is short the gold... both won't be right for long... the momentum line continues higher and the market does appear to have broken out higher above a major resistance line... so, we'll see soon enough...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... BIG GAINS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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 - - 2841.00

MAJOR - - 2818.301 and must below below that price on Wednesday, January 31st to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2811.11

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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:

This market is so overbought, we can see it struggle throughout the day...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the February gold at 1335.90 as of 1/23/18 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

MAJOR - - 1355.26 and must below that price on Thursday, February 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1347.80

minor - - 1346.72

MAJOR - - 1291.38 and must close above that price on Thursday, February 8th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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...

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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS BOUGHT TODAY: Precious Metals (SLV) (AEM) (NUGT) (JNUG), Global Infrastructure (IGF)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: none...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: none...

The optimized portfolio is now long the March SP futures from 2697.50... BIG GAINS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!! Follow the optimized instructions and make money... never chase any market if it turns upward again after getting stopped out, if that market really wants to move higher then take the next buy signal when it gets hit, be patient... I take every signal...

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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS BOUGHT TODAY: Consumer Discretionary (UN), Energy (UGAZ), Precious Metals (RGLD)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: none...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Precious Metals (SLV)... yes, it was stopped out today but if this market really wants to rally then we'll buy it again...

The optimized portfolio is now long the March SP futures from 2697.50... 142.50 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!! Follow the optimized instructions and make money... never chase any market if it turns upward again after getting stopped out, if that market really wants to move higher then take the next buy signal when it gets hit, be patient... I take every signal...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... 162.25 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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 - - 2839.50

MAJOR - - 2818.301 and must below below that price on Wednesday, January 31st to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2811.11

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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:

This market is profoundly overbought, but no sign of fatigue yet...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now short the February gold at 1336.00 as of 1/17/18 on a VP sell 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

MAJOR - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal... HELD OVER DUE TO CURRENT SHORT POSITION!!!

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1340.90

minor - - 1306.22

MAJOR - - 1291.38 and must close above that price on Thursday, February 8th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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:

After today, this market is still as firm as ever... this market is now poised for a MAMMOTH upside breakout!!! Let's see if it happens, we had a portfolio buy for RGLD but SLV was stopped out but may be ready for another buy very soon......

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... 158 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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 - - 2835.50

MAJOR - - 2818.301 and must below below that price on Wednesday, January 31st to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2811.11

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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:

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS BOUGHT TODAY: none...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: none...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: none...

The optimized portfolio is now long the March SP futures from 2697.50... 135 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

I take every signal...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... 135 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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 - - 2811.75

MAJOR - - 2771.83 and must below below that price on Monday, January 29th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2761.99

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now short the February gold at 1336.00 as of 1/17/18 on a VP sell 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

MAJOR - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal... HELD OVER DUE TO CURRENT SHORT POSITION!!!

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1331.60

minor - - 1306.22

MAJOR - - 1291.38 and must close above that price on Thursday, February 8th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... 126 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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 - - 2799.25

MAJOR - - 2771.83 and must below below that price on Monday, January 29th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2761.99

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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:

This market is still extremely overbought... caution is wise...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now short the February gold at 1336.00 as of 1/17/18 on a VP sell 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

MAJOR - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal... HELD OVER DUE TO CURRENT SHORT POSITION!!!

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1326.30

minor - - 1306.22

MAJOR - - 1291.38 and must close above that price on Thursday, February 8th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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:

The mo line is now only barely moving higher, it's almost flat for today... the main model is already short this market!!!

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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS BOUGHT TODAY: Energy (UGAZ)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: none...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Stock Indices (XIV), Technology (SSYS, DDD)...

The optimized portfolio is now long the March SP futures from 2697.50... 90 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!! Follow the optimized instructions and make money... never chase any market if it turns upward again after getting stopped out, if that market really wants to move higher then take the next buy signal when it gets hit, be patient... I take every signal...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the March SP at 2677.25 as of 1/2/18 on a VP buy signal... 110 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!!

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 - - 2783.00

MAJOR - - 2771.83 and must below below that price on Monday, January 29th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2761.99

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on 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:

This market is now extremely overbought!!! Caution!!! This momentum graph of four years of prices shows the momentum indicator now the 3rd highest high... you can actually draw a line connecting the two previous highest momentum lines and it will touch today's momentum line...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the February gold at 1309.70 as of 1/2/18 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...

SINCE THE GOLD MARKET HAS HAD SUCH A NONSTOP RUN HIGHER, THE VP POINTS HAVE BECOME SCANT FOR NOW...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1339.30

MAJOR - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 1306.22

MAJOR - - 1291.38 and must close above that price on Thursday, February 8th to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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...

****************************** ****************************** ****************************** ****************************** ****************************** ****************************** ****************************** ****************************** ****************************** *

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...

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

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...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS BOUGHT TODAY: Energy (UGAZ), Technology (SSYS, DDD), Precious Metals (NUGT)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: Precious Metals (JNUG)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: none...

The optimized portfolio is now long the March SP futures from 2697.50... 90 SP POINTS SO FAR ON THIS TRADE!!! Follow the optimized instructions and make money... never chase any market if it turns upward again after getting stopped out, if that market really wants to move higher then take the next buy signal when it gets hit, be patient... I take every signal...

THE FOLLOWING IS THE PERFORMANCE HISTORY FOR THE OPTIMIZED SP SIGNALS FIRST INTRODUCED ON AUGUST 20, 2015

YEAR NUMBER OF CLOSED TRADES POINTS GAINED

2015 4 trades 125.30
2016 13 trades 322.60
2017 25 trades 224.75
2018 1 trade -13.25

TOTAL 43 closed trades 659.40

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...

Total optimized portfolio points gained for 2017: 624.17

NOTE: Many of the ongoing position stops were revised upwards today, check on your markets... we have some spectacular gains so far in the stock index group, we're not giving them back...

I hope no one is allergic to making money!!! The portfolio is up significantly on closed positions only since first introduced on July 11th...

PLEASE NOTE: There is a smaller portfolio within the optimized portfolio indicating those markets which have the best long term overall performances, you will see an asterisk next to those market symbols... for simplicity in following such a large portfolio, you could simply follow those specified market and do nearly as well...

DIVERSIFY AND REDUCE YOUR RISK... the portfolio is already booking 2018 profits!!!

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...
