As a Club EWI member, please be our guest to watch Futures Junctures Editor Jeffrey Kennedy’s latest Trader’s Classroom video - for free.

Fives Keys to Spotting Trade Setups discusses
the ways in which you can accurately recognize
corrective or countertrend price action in order
to identify high probability trade setups.

Jeffrey started producing Trader’s Classroom with the goal of simplifying the often-difficult lessons learned in real-world trading:

"I began my career as an independent trader, so I know firsthand how hard it can be to get simple explanations of methods that consistently work. In more than 12 years since then, I've learned many lessons, and I don't think you should have to learn them all the hard way."

95% of today's traders consistently lose more money than they make.

Here's why:

The 5 Most Dangerous Trends
Every Stock and Futures Trader
Needs to Know NOW!

And what you can do right now to make sure you are positively
positioned for maximum profit in a chaotic world and market place.

Dangerous Trend # 1. Unprecedented and accelerated increase in chaotic world

events. And what makes the impact of these events significantly greater is

the power of the media to magnify and sometimes even distort these events.

The result is an increased atmosphere of fear, confusion and uncertainty. And

fearful investors do not usually make the best choices because they are

knee-jerk, emotional reactions instead of reasoned and intelligent decisions.

This can and does wreak havoc on the markets.

Consider the impact of just a few types of chaotic world events:

Political upheavals
Corporate Scandals: Enron, WorldCom, Martha Stewart, etc.
Terrorism: 911, etc.
Natural Disasters: tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, freezes, droughts,

Lesson from Dangerous Trend #1: Make sure your method of trading has built-in

safe guards to prevent major financial loss in case of such chaotic events

that will surely continue to plague the industry.

Dangerous Trend #2. Mergers, acquisitions, and consolidation of major

financial services. Banks, brokerage companies, investment firms and

insurance companies have been merging at a never-before-seen rate. This means

a greater transfer of financial control to a few large companies. For the

trading consumer, this tends to translate into receiving less personalized

service and misled recommendations based on what's best for the company

instead of what's best for you.

As investors and traders become a nameless number in a sea of digits, these

companies continue to spend the majority of the profits generated by your

money not on increased service, but on multi-million dollar marketing

campaigns designed to acquire as many new customers as possible even at the

expense of being unable to provide personalized support to their existing

customer base.

Lesson from Dangerous Trend #2: Bottom line is that bigger usually does not

mean better for the trading customer. Make sure that the companies you choose

to handle your money are also able to provide you with the level of support

you deserve as a client. If not, it will usually cost you in the long run.

Only work with those companies who will listen to your needs and respond

appropriately. Remember it's a partnership and a two-way street.

Dangerous Trend #3. Investors handing over their money to "Experts." While

there are a few money mangers out there that actually do make money for their

clients, most do not. And yet there exists an increased trend in handing over

hard earned money to someone else to do something with it. This appeals to

that inherent human weakness of settling for short-term convenience instead

of going for what is best in the long run. It might be initially convenient

to give money to an expert, but not so convenient as the money slowly or

quickly, as is often the case, disappears.

Lesson from Dangerous Trend #3: The buck stops with you. When it comes to

successful trading, there is no substitute for personal responsibility,

self-education and making one's own investment and trading decisions. Those

that make the most in trading aren't the ones handing their money over to a

money manager.

Dangerous Trend #4. Lack of personal trading preparation and commitment.

Trading is a business and respected as such can bring great profit. But,

unfortunately, many treat it like a slot machine or a lotto ticket.

They make one or more of the following 8 common deadly trading mistakes:
They don't take the time to educate themselves adequately before investing.
They haven't developed or consistently use a trading system that gives them

an edge.
They haven't developed a sound money and risk management strategy.
They stay in losing trades too long.
They don't set stop loss points with every trade.
They have a get rich quick attitude.
They trade in a range-bound channel.
They try to buy bottoms and short tops, instead of trading breakouts.

Lesson from Dangerous Trend #4: View trading as you would a serious business.

Prepare yourself before you commit your hard earned money. Take the long-term

view. Educate yourself. Invest in information and tools that will give you an

edge in the marketplace. Paper trade first. Create a trading strategy, make

plans to implement it, and exercise the discipline to follow it even when (or

especially when) your emotions dictate otherwise.

Dangerous Trend #5. Continued reliance on out-dated trading systems and

models based on traditional, linear mathematics. 99% of today's trading

systems are based on inadequate mathematical analysis that assumes the past

will be like the future. It's no wonder that only about 5% of traders are

profiting on a consistent basis.

For most of our lives, we have been taught to think in linear, Newtonian

terms. We have been led to believe that for every effect, there is a cause;

for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. If we want to

prove or disprove a hypothesis, we employ the scientific method, and then

analyze our data through the use of statistics. And when we apply linear

tools or Newtonian thinking to stable, non-turbulent data, the results are

actually very useful.

However, if we assume that linear math is also adequate for analyzing the

behavior of such complex systems as the weather, the flow of traffic in city

streets, human brain wave activity or the financial markets, we are making a

BIG mistake. This is because these systems are nonlinear in nature, and

analyzing them requires a nonlinear approach.

For example, what happens in the market is overwhelmingly influenced by the

individual decisions of all active investors. Since investors base their

decisions on their own personal motives, needs, desires, hopes, fears, and

beliefs, the markets, as a reflection of their interaction with the mass of

investors, are inherently complex, nonlinear systems. Yet most market experts

ignore this fact when developing trading systems that appear to work. They

analyze decades of charts and employ highly sophisticated linear statistics

to "fit" these historical data to a particular model.

Using such processes has led to pattern recognition programs (head and

shoulders, 1-2-3 formations, triangles, pennants, and so on), as well as to

many of the other market indicators such as Bollinger bands (based on

standard deviations), reserve strength indicators, and others. These tools

will accurately point to where you should have entered and exited the market

for maximum profit in the past.

However, while all systems and indicators that are based on linear techniques

are accurate predictors of past performance, they do not work well in present


Nevertheless, the experts continue to apply linear tools to analyze these

nonlinear phenomena, and they continue to obtain indifferent results.

Thus, the implication for the millions of speculative investors who use

techniques, tools and systems based on linear models is that they are doomed

to losing often and winning only occasionally. This is because such models

are grounded in the mistaken assumption that the future will be like the

past. But the fact is that every broker, every publication, every trading

system including this one, and every Internet site that deals with trading

publishes this warning: Past performance is not necessarily indicative of

future results. The risk of loss exists in trading the stock and futures


Lesson from Dangerous Trend #5: An altogether different kind of trading

system based in non-linear math is necessary to understand and profit from

the complexities of the markets. Since Chaos Theory is totally nonlinear in

its approach to analysis, it lends itself particularly well to systems whose

behavior appears to be random, unpredictable, and "chaotic." Employing

rigorous mathematical methodology, Chaos Theory is especially useful for

revealing the highly ordered underlying structure of turbulent systems like

the financial markets.

Take a rapidly running river, for example. The underlying structure of the

riverbed, with its rocks, boulders, trenches, shallows, and sandbars is what

produces the rapids, the white water, and the eddies we see on the surface.

If we could see the bottom, we could accurately predict the surface

conditions at any given spot along the river.

The markets are a lot like a river: they, too, have their rapids, their white

water, and their eddies. And like rivers, they also have an underlying

structure. As we properly apply the latest findings in Chaos Theory to see

that structure, we can more accurately make sense of the market charts on our

computer screens and make more profitable trading decisions.

Lesson 10 - "How to trade divergence"
by Mark McRae

Well, the response I got from the last lesson in video
format was just incredible . I got more complimentary
emails than I have ever done before, so my thanks to
everyone who took the time to drop me a note. That's
how we make things better - by working together.

Anyway, onto the lesson. One of the most overlooked
methods of trading is divergence. Regardless of what
method I am using, I always keep an eye on any
divergence that may be forming. This lesson will teach
you a simply way to spot trades as divergence forms.
