Intermarket Analysis: 20 Years of Success Developing Trading Systems*

March 10, 2019, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm


Intermarket analysis studies the interrelationships between various related markets. Standard correlation analysis between markets is not useful if our goal is to predict future prices or generate profitable signals, but a study of intermarket divergence achieves these goals. Trading system developer Murray Ruggiero coined a methodology called "intermarket divergence" in the mid-1990s, which allows traders to gauge the predictive power of this analysis and produce 100% objective signals. For more than 20 years, he has used this methodology to develop trading systems, which have produced robust and reliable trading signals.

Some Points Covered in This Class Include:

  • What intermarket divergence is and why it works
  • Finding reliable intermarket signals, which are predictive of markets you are trading
  • Knowing when intermarket-based systems work and when they don't
  • What intermarket state analysis is and why it is an advance over intermarket divergence
  • Developing a basket of intermarket-based systems on different markets and different intermarket pairs, so that the combination of these systems provide diversification

When you leave this Master Class, you will possess knowledge of how to develop reliable trading systems based on intermarket divergence and state analysis.

The Practical Application of Bollinger Bands*

March 10, 2019, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Bollinger Bands are an advanced form of trading band developed by John Bollinger and used by traders worldwide. All trading bands exist for a single purpose, to answer the question "Are prices relatively high or low?" The answer to that question is useful in developing trading systems, pattern recognition, and many other market operations. Bollinger Bands can be applied in all the financial markets including equities, forex, commodities, and futures and they can be used in most time frames, from very short-term periods, to hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly.

In this Master Class with John Bollinger, president and founder, Bollinger Capital Management, you will learn how and why Bollinger Bands were developed, how they were initially used, and how they are used today. You'll learn the two most important Bollinger Band indicators and one of the newest BB indicators, BBTrend. Finally, you learn some trading setups that will allow you to put what you have learned to work. There will be lots of time to answer your questions and no previous knowledge of Bollinger Bands or the related material is necessary.All Master Class attendees will receive a free one-month subscription to the Bollinger Bands Letter.

Kairos: The Supreme Opportunity Where a Trader Has the Greatest Edge*

March 10, 2019, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Focus: TOOLS

Kairos is defined as the supreme moment. Markets are a zero-sum game. To have the edge over the person on the other side of the trade, one must understand what may be coming against them, avoid it, and instead get into flow with it. By identifying the Kairos moment, a trader can identify when the pattern is most likely in their favor with best possible risk/reward ratio.

In this Master Class, Jeff Greenblatt, also known as Fibonacciman, will help you learn to identify Kairos moments through balancing price and time square outs and vibrations. While no two patterns are ever the same, the high-probability tendencies you will learn repeat over and over.

  • The real reason why markets change direction; it's not what most people think.
  • The most precise way to identify the highest-probability point of where the pullback and sell bounces on any chart, which leads to the continuation of the trend
  • What is really driving moves in the intraday E-mini
  • The most precise way to uncover tight double high/low consolidations that lead to the best moves
  • How we identified a long-term change in the soybeans market
  • How a 36-point pullback in gold led to an explosive move in less than three days (not all pullbacks are created equal)
  • How to identify changes of direction on the intraday E-mini
  • How options players can get much closer to the best part of the move without wasting the time element of the instrument
  • A 21-year reading that lined up at the bottom of the 2008-09 financial crisis
  • An 18-year reading that lined up at the high of the recent October sell off

Additionally, most Fibonacci/Elliott-based traders only know of the standard default retracement levels available on most trading software platforms. You will learn how retracements line up with Kairos, which will open up many more opportunities.

This methodology can be used for stocks, commodities, futures, forex, intraday or long term, swing or intraday traders, and can be applied to any time frame. Jeff will also discuss zero-sum markets and show how upward or downward pressure develops on charts to expose the best moves without using any indicators.

Kairos price and time squaring will be introduced, and you will learn how it works and how to develop high-probability trading strategies that give the highest-probability risk/reward ratios.

    Trading Highest Probability Patterns Where Price and Time Meet!*

    March 11, 2019, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Focus: TOOLS

    Everyone talks about price but not timing! When price and time meet, it gives a high probability trade. If you are a trader looking for consistent profits, you need to attend this workshop. Two timing elements combined with a trading plan gives you an incredible trading system. Don't believe it, check it out!

    Manesh Patel will begin this master workshop teaching you about seasonality. Everyone talks about seasonality, but this is different. He applied machine learning algorithms (google, amazon, etc.) on seasonality and discovered how to take 50-60% probability seasonal patterns and turn them into a high probability trades. Manesh will show you what to look for in futures, currencies, and stocks in global markets from US, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and more. And all of this is done without a chart!

    Once the high probably trades are found, he will confirm them with technical analysis. The technical analysis he will teach you is simple and very powerful. Here is how simple it is:

    • Bullish setup: Green Shaded area
    • Bearish setup: Red Shaded area
    • Trailing step: Green Dots
    • Breakout Entry: Blue Dots
    • Bull Back Entry: Black Crosses

    His AI technology looks at the 1-minute to the 1-month time frame to determine the multiple time frame support/resistances in matter of seconds. They are then shown on the chart through black crosses, so you do not need to look at other time frames or scroll back anymore. Not only can you see these key levels today, but you can see them in the past! Have you ever seen multiple time frame support/resistance in the past? This is a timing element that has never been seen!

    Time permitting, Manesh will teach you how to forecast these shaded setups for a 3:1 reward/risk! Also, he will show you how to optimize any other technical system from Fibonacci, Elliott Wave, Bollinger Bands, etc., with the IMTFTechnology.

    Here is summary of everything you will learn:

    • How to find high probability setup in seasonality. This includes seasonality that shows only 50% probability!
    • Money Management: 3:1 reward/risk & win/loss
    • Bullish/bearish setup
    • Stops for setup and existing trades
    • Breakout entry is for a trade setup
    • Pull back is for a trade setup
    • Preserve mode: where to take tighten stop so you don't have to go "round trip"
    • Trading plan

    Mastering the What, How, & When with Investments and Their Executions*

    March 12, 2019, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


    In this Master Class, Raymond Rondeau, technical analyst and contributing editor, AAII Computerized Investing , will focus on the often-overlooked When and How areas of trading and investing, and then contour that material to the What for the current market environment. Included will be analysis on a number of the most widely traded investment vehicles in today's markets and a live attendee's choice stock analysis session.

    Beginning material will include some basics on portfolio creation, calculating appropriate position sizes, diversifications, and the basic elements of creating attainable returns with a primary focus on risk. Also, in this section will be a segment showing a number of "tricks of the trade" on various order types to attain more favorable prices and gain more execution control.

    Two special segments will also be included: In the first segment, Ray will look at how index investors can gain a mathematical advantage (and improved returns) by exploiting pricing inefficiencies in certain investment vehicles. In the second segment, Ray will look at some tools and methods to capture dividends more efficiently.

    Then to the primary focus of this class, how to definitively locate sound, tangible, and logical investment entry and exit prices. Target selections will be based on a variety of methods, including chart reading, key price patterns, spotting price manipulations, technical indicators, and certain key fundamental measurements.

    For those who emphasize indicators, statistics from Ray's AAII Classic Technical Indicator series of articles will be provided. This will include analysis on every stock in the S&P 500 over a 10-year period. Detailed statistics and rankings of the best-performing and the specific methods and exact parameters on RSI, stochastics, MACD, and Bollinger Bands will be reported.

    Lastly, Ray will look at the often-overlooked element of intuition by observation and reasoning. This is an area that many professional investors put a lot of weight into, especially with regard to price/news-event and price/derivative divergences. This all leads to Ray's 10 Classic Sell Signals-a checklist of the 10 things that an investor should look for and that could be indicating that their stock may be heading for a significant decline.

    COT Report: From Mines to Data Mining*

    March 12, 2019, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


    This all-new Master Class taught by Andy Waldock, founder, Commodity & Derivative Advisors, will begin with a brief description of what the COT Report is, followed by a more in-depth look at the close links between the biggest players in the markets and the connections they share. Specifically, the interwoven relationships among the board members of commodity-heavy Fortune 500 companies like Tyson Foods and Monsanto, who both have board members with shared seats on Procter and Gamble's board, as well as others.

    He'll then explain how the COT groups' participation can be measured in ways other than the raw data or base TradeStation plotting options. Andy will create examples that also show how the commercial traders behave differently from market to market and why using the commonly plotted raw values is of little use in actual trading. He'll finish the data discussion with how to determine market capacity and what happens in a speculative blowout.

    Finally, Andy will get technical. He'll include the code for a COT indicator that he uses to determine just how overextended a market may be, and correspondingly, how violently it may snap back. We'll then go into a deeper look at the reversal methodology discussed in the preview.

    Andy will discuss how to use this data to create a mechanical mean-reversion trading system that can be broken down in English or tested on your favorite genetic algorithm generation program like, Adaptrade. Finally, he'll also show you how he uses COT data to filter the trades in his seasonal trading program.

    $299 per person if purchased by February 28; $349 per person if purchased after February 28. Includes refreshments.
