TradingSmarts is the perfect place for YOU to start learning how to recognize these all-important signals. While there are no ‘sure-fire things’ in the marketplace, predictable and recurring cycles do drive the prices of bonds, commodities, currencies, and stocks for sure. This price action then triggers good, fairly low-risk trading opportunities for YOU, once YOU know how to recognize and pinpoint the distortions and imbalance between cycles and stock prices. My publications show YOU, step-by-step, how to spot and profit from these powerful breakout opportunities. I focus on showing YOU how to work with the market (the ‘Smart Money’), rather than against it (the ‘Dumb Money’), so that YOU can seize winning opportunities, regardless of the way the market is trending. My publications go a full-step further, providing YOU with an actual blueprint to develop a sound investment or trading strategy capable of generating consistently superior returns.
