BIG DOGS EXPOSED
Sound familiar? You have spent years in search of stock market investing basics and stock market successful trading strategies. All you really want is the "Holy Grail" of entry techniques. You add one indicator on top of another, switch from one guru to the next, until you are so confused and unsure of your entry system that you can't make entry decisions and stay organized. You get so distracted and frustrated that you quit watching the markets all together!

Shows you how FAST you can make money when the BIG DOGS get their way, which is ALL THE TIME. And, we're talking ALL 80 markets here - not just stocks and commodities. Even I am STILL surprised by how much power they have.
Markets got you down? Well, get over it. Traders move the markets but who really cares what they're doing? Warren Buffett hardly ever watches them.
Marshall Acuff, who spent 35 years as a market strategist at Salomon Smith Barney, said "From a long-term standpoint, you have to be a bull. History has borne us out."
To paraphrase Damon Runyon, the race does not always go to the bulls, but that's the way to bet.
Roy Neuberger, one of the best-known traders on Wall Street in his heyday, has yet to be scared off by any of the market's twists and turns. He is convinced that opportunities abound in any market. To him, even a bear market is a regular market. A survivor of the stock market crash in October, 1929, he still trades to this day at age 98.
In 1975, Benjamin Graham, the father of fundamental equity analysis and value investing, and author of the classic "The Intelligent Investor" published in 1949, said "I refuse to attach a permanence to anything I see around me, including the pessimism I read today in The Wall Street Journal. With my 60 years of experience, I can't say that anything I've witnessed, including two world wars, and the spread of communism, have had any identifiable long-term effect on common stock investments."
He went on to say, "In the short run, the stock market is a voting machine, but in the long run it's a weighing machine." Of course, he was saying that day-to-day, the market is fuelled by emotion - primarily fear and greed. Over the longer term, it means that extremes are corrected and reasonable values are re-established.
Sir John Templeton built his fortune by buying any stock costing less than US$1 at the outbreak of WW II. The best investors of all time were buying when everyone else was selling.
Economics faculty at the University of Chicago used to tell students that the impact of monetary easing by central banks is like a helicopter flying over a city and dropping $100-bills to the streets below. Well, we'll see. So far, either the helicopter hasn't been dropping enough bills or their denomination is too small.
We are hedge traders who are on the "long side" or the "short side" of the Street or both, and we only trade what the market is pushing up or down the most. We never fight the tape. The trend is our friend. We buy what's hot and short the dogs. We'll show you how to make money in up, down or sideways markets. We exploit inflection points and sometimes take a large position and hold on to it for a long-term trade. Find out how one trader turned $11,000 into $18 million. Read my book.

Copper Footnote: The copper market is considered a leading indicator of world industrial activity because of its widespread usage and ability to guage new orders. Copper is tied closely to the economy with uses in everything from electronics to housing to automobiles. In the past 20 years, copper has been a leading indicator of economic downturns and recoveries. It accounts for about 35% of the trading volume in base metals on the LME (London Metal Exchange) and is a good indicator of the health of the broader economy..
LME (London Metal Exchange) base metals, like copper - the bellwether for the base-metals group, have marched lower since the end of 2000, as the global economy slowed. When the economies do start to turn around, copper will start to indicate that it's going to happen. Copper anticipates the recovery three or four times before it arrives.
Of course, the commercial traders are adept at distinguishing a bear market rally, based on technical or seasonal reasons, from one grounded on improved fundamentals. Even I am STILL surprised by how FAST you can make money when the market moves their way. Get the surprising facts in my book at www.tradingsmarts.com/order.htm.
