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 (PPLT), Foreign Markets (FXI), Agriculture (GCC)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: Stock Indices (TNA) (SOXL)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Stock Indices (IWM)...

The optimized portfolio is now flat the March SP futures but the new buy stop is not far away... there are now 43 completed trades for 659.40 SP points... 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...

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...

NOTE: Many of the ongoing position stops were revised upwards today, check on your markets, some markets may have closed today below tomorrow's exit stop, simply exit that trade... 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...

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 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...

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 - - 2707.41 and must close below that price on Thursday January 4th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2699.509

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2692.25

MAJOR - - 2687.46 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

MAJOR - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2677.37

minor - - 2663.49

minor - - 2648.23

MAJOR - - 2628.46 and must close above that price on Monday , January 22nd to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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 mo line is perfectly flat today and it won't take much to turn it higher tomorrow...

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...

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

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1319.20

minor - - 1309.77

minor - - none

MAJOR - - 1240.72 and must close above that price on Monday, December 11th to confirm a new main model buy signal... HELD OVER...

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:

Still looking very bullish with the mo line moving straight up...

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...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Health Care (CURE)...

The optimized portfolio is now short the March SP futures at 2682.25... today's high missed hitting the exit stop since the model was able to calculate where the market should not reach if this were a good short... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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 2687.50 as of 12/22/17 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...

MAJOR - - 2707.41 and must close below that price on Thursday January 4th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2699.509

MAJOR - - 2687.46 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

MAJOR - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2677.37

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2673.00

minor - - 2663.49

minor - - 2648.23

MAJOR - - 2628.46 and must close above that price on Monday , January 22nd to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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:

Possible top here??? The mo line is now moving lower in earnest... the VP signal is short, the portfolio is short the SP futures, and the exit stop are rising rapidly on all open positions...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now short the February gold at 1309.80 as of 12/29/17 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...

minor - - 1309.77

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1305.30

minor - - none

MAJOR - - 1240.72 and must close above that price on Monday, December 11th to confirm a new main model buy signal... HELD OVER...

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:

Looking very bullish... the main model is short on a near term VP sell signal, but the longer term portfolio position remains long this market...

“Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity."

STOP GUESSING!!!

FOLLOW THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO AND START MAKING MONEY!!!

THE VP SIGNAL MAPS FOR THE SP AND GOLD ARE FOR THE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND NIMBLE NEAR TERM TRADER!!!

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

A TUTORIAL ON THE PROPER USE OF THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO IS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS EVENING BRIEFING... PROPER APPLICATION OF THE OPTIMIZED SIGNALS WILL ENSURE LONG TERM MARKET GAINS...

ALL SP PRICES ARE NOW THE ES SP CONTRACT, WE HAVE NOW DISCONTINUED THE USE OF THE LARGE CONTRACT...

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...

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A PROFESSIONAL TO TRADE LIKE ONE!!!

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

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...

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 (GLD) (UGL), Foreign and Emerging Markets (EEM), Commodities and Agriculture (DBC)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: Commodities and Agriculture (GCC), Precious Metals (AEM is just one tick away)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Precious Metals (RGLD), Health Care (XLV)...

The optomized portfolio is now short the March SP futures at 2682.25... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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...

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...

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...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now short the March SP at 2687.50 as of 12/22/17 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...

MAJOR - - 2707.41 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal... same date as the other major VP

minor - - 2699.509

MAJOR - - 2687.46 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal... same date as the other major VP

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2686.00

MAJOR - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2677.37

minor - - 2663.49

minor - - 2648.23

MAJOR - - 2628.46 and must close above that price on Monday , January 22nd to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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 mo line is continuing lower slowly but surely, for now anyhow...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the February gold at 1244.30 as of 12/11/17 and at 1240.70 as of 12/12/17 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 - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 1309.77

minor - - none

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1291.90

MAJOR - - 1240.72 and must close above that price on Monday, December 11th to confirm a new main model buy signal... HELD OVER...

“Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity."

* * * Julius Caesar

THE MARKETS WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 25TH TO OBSERVE CHRISTMAS DAY AND WILL REOPEN ON TUESDAY MORNING, THEREFORE THERE WILL BE NO MONDAY EVENING BRIEFING...

THE POSITIONS LISTED IN THE TITLE SUBJECT ARE THE POSITIONS BASED ON THE VP SIGNALS AND NOT THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO.

STOP GUESSING!!!

FOLLOW THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO AND START MAKING MONEY!!!

THE VP SIGNAL MAPS FOR THE SP AND GOLD ARE FOR THE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND NIMBLE NEAR TERM TRADER!!!

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

A TUTORIAL ON THE PROPER USE OF THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO IS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS EVENING BRIEFING... PROPER APPLICATION OF THE OPTIMIZED SIGNALS WILL ENSURE LONG TERM MARKET GAINS...

ALL SP PRICES ARE NOW THE ES SP CONTRACT, WE HAVE NOW DISCONTINUED THE USE OF THE LARGE CONTRACT...

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...

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A PROFESSIONAL TO TRADE LIKE ONE!!!

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

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...

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 (UCO), Precious Metals (NUGT) (HUI) (RGLD)... also, bought the February gold futures contract for the portfolio today...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: none... possible SP futures short position getting close enough to watch...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: none...

WATCH FOR A POSSIBLE SP futures short portfolio position at 2680.25 for Tuesday... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

IF YOU SEE AN ERROR IN TODAY'S LISTING, JUST LET ME KNOW, THANKS…

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

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 2687.50 as of 12/22/17 on a VP sell signal... so close to a major VP, this short position may not last, we'll see...

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...

NO VP POINTS ABOVE THIS MARKET RIGHT NOW!!!

MAJOR - - 2707.41 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal... same date as the other major VP

minor - - 2699.509

MAJOR - - 2687.46 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal... same date as the other major VP

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2686.25

MAJOR - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 2677.37

minor - - 2663.49

minor - - 2648.23

MAJOR - - 2628.46 and must close above that price on Monday , January 22nd to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - none

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 mo line is moving sideways today, absolutely no direction as of now... actually, it does look toppy but it doesn't go down...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the February gold at 1244.30 as of 12/11/17 and at 1240.70 as of 12/12/17 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 - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 1309.77

minor - - none

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1278.30

For Friday, December 22nd

“Why do dogs always race to the door when the doorbell rings? I mean, it’s hardly ever for them?"

* * * Harry Hill

THE POSITIONS LISTED IN THE TITLE SUBJECT ARE THE POSITIONS BASED ON THE VP SIGNALS AND NOT THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO.

STOP GUESSING!!!

FOLLOW THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO AND START MAKING MONEY!!!

THE VP SIGNAL MAPS FOR THE SP AND GOLD ARE FOR THE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND NIMBLE NEAR TERM TRADER!!!

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

A TUTORIAL ON THE PROPER USE OF THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO IS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS EVENING BRIEFING... PROPER APPLICATION OF THE OPTIMIZED SIGNALS WILL ENSURE LONG TERM MARKET GAINS...

ALL SP PRICES ARE NOW THE ES SP CONTRACT, WE HAVE NOW DISCONTINUED THE USE OF THE LARGE CONTRACT...

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...

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A PROFESSIONAL TO TRADE LIKE ONE!!!

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

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...

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 (XLE), Precious Metals (JNUG)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: Interest Rates (TBT, TMV)... possible SP futures short position getting close enough to watch...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: none...

WATCH FOR A POSSIBLE SP futures short portfolio position at 2679.50 for tomorrow... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 (GDXJ, ABX)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS APPROACHING THE BUY ZONE: Interest Rates (TBT, TMV)...

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Precious Metals (ZSL, GLL), Global Infrastructure (IGF), Interest Rates (VCLT)...

An SP futures position is included in the portfolio... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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...

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...

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...

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

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 2687.50 as of 12/1519/17 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...

NO VP POINTS ABOVE THIS MARKET RIGHT NOW!!!

MAJOR - - 2687.46 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

MAJOR - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2681.50

minor - - 2677.37

minor - - 2663.49

minor - - none

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 mo line turned completely flat as of today...

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the February gold at 1244.30 as of 12/11/17 and at 1240.70 as of 12/12/17 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 - - 1335.94 and must below that price on Thursday, January 18th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - 1309.77

minor - -

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1268.90

MAJOR - - 1240.72 and must close above that price on Monday, December 11th to confirm a new main model buy signal... HELD OVER...

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 continues higher and is now visible to the naked eye...

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 2687.50 as of 12/1519/17 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...

NO VP POINTS ABOVE THIS MARKET RIGHT NOW!!!

MAJOR - - 2687.46 and must close below that price on Tuesday January 2nd to confirm a new main model sell signal...

MAJOR - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2684.50

minor - - 2677.37

minor - - 2663.49

minor - - none

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 moving higher despite today's market weakness...

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...

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: Foreign Markets (EURL)...

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

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Precious Metals (DUST), Interest Rates (TMF)...

An SP futures position is included in the portfolio... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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...

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...

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...

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 MARCH mini VP PRICES

The main model is now long the December SP at 2663.25 as of 12/15/17 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 - - 2685.85 and must below below that price on Friday, January 12th to confirm a new main model sell signal...

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 2682.50

minor - - 2663.49

MAJOR - - none and must close above that price on none to confirm a new main model buy signal...

minor - - 2601.56

minor - - 2597.54

minor - - none

MAJOR - - 2574.14 and must close above that price on Friday, January 19th 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:

Moving higher again!!! There is nothing stopping this market!!!

FEBRUARY GOLD VP PRICES

The main model is now long the February gold at 1244.30 as of 12/11/17 and at 1240.70 as of 12/12/17 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 - - none and must below above that price on none to confirm a new main model sell signal...

minor - - none

minor - - 1264.65

TODAY'S LAST TRADED PRICE - - 1258.60

MAJOR - - 1240.72 and must close above that price on Monday, December 11th to confirm a new main model buy signal... HELD OVER...

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...

Beginning to inch higher again as of today, very fickle market, no direction...

THE VP SIGNAL MAPS FOR THE SP AND GOLD ARE FOR THE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND NIMBLE NEAR TERM TRADER!!!

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

A TUTORIAL ON THE PROPER USE OF THE OPTIMIZED PORTFOLIO IS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS EVENING BRIEFING... PROPER APPLICATION OF THE OPTIMIZED SIGNALS WILL ENSURE LONG TERM MARKET GAINS...

ALL SP PRICES ARE NOW THE ES SP CONTRACT, WE HAVE NOW DISCONTINUED THE USE OF THE LARGE CONTRACT...

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...

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A PROFESSIONAL TO TRADE LIKE ONE!!!

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

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...

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: Technology (DDD)...

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

GROUPS WITH COMPONENTS STOPPED OUT TODAY: Health Care (IBB)...

A long SP futures portfolio position was stopped ouot today for a 6.25 popint gain... there are now 42 completed trades for 672.65 SP points... 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
