- Can I trade Rydex or ProFund index funds using your market timing system?
Yes, we have many members who have successfully traded Rydex or ProFund index funds using our system, especially dynamic
Rydex funds. In fact, there are many Mutual Funds to choose from when trading indexes. For the most part, our signals are exceptional
to use for trading any Mutual Fund that contains stocks that compliment the broad market indexes we cover.
- Who are your members?
Our members come from many countries in the world. We believe our members are professional investors,
stockbrokers, money managers, financial planners and investment advisors, and individual investors. We also
believe our members are those who have tried other investing strategies (i.e., day trading, buy-and-hold stocks and
stock mutual funds, etc..) and have lost money through those strategies. Investors and traders alike are now
looking for "and have found" an honest and lower risk method of investing through our system.
For those who truly follow our methodology will notice a gradual increase in their portfolio as time progresses.
- What is the difference between a long, short or hold signal?
When the signal says "long", this means place a trade to buy the stock. A "short" signal
means short sell the stock. And a "hold" means maintain a 100% cash position. If you do not
wish to use margin as with short selling (i.e., borrowing stock from your broker in order to
buy-to-cover at a lower price — meaning betting that the price of the security will decrease),
you can simply remain in a cash position until the next buy signal is generated.
- What does a "Hold" signal mean?
When the new signal says "Hold", you are to maintain a 100% cash position. Therefore,
you are to either: (1) buy-to-cover short positions and now hold 100% cash until a new signal
is produced, or (2) sell stocks after a long position and now hold 100% cash until a new
signal is produced.
- Could you please e-mail me a complete list of your signals for previous years so I may evaluate how effective your signals are? I do not need
current data. Older data would be fine. Thank you.
All of our tables are available to the public. Please go to the left-hand menu on any page and under "Tables" click on DIA, SPY,
and QQQ. The system has been back-tested using data from years 2000 and the 1st 1/2 of 2001. We went live in July 2001. The
system has done quite well ever since we went live and continues to beat the market. The effectiveness of our system has been made
available in our performance summary bar
chart. Our weekly stock picks (as a bonus) have also been doing well, but that is not the main intent of the web site.
For more details of our signals and trading performance, refer to our comprehensive trading statistics for the indexes.
- Does your company also trade the index stocks?
Yes, we trade all three of them (DIA, SPY, and QQQ). By trading the index stocks, we believe our system provides a lower risk
method of investing, as opposed to trading any individual stock, which is subject to higher risk, volatility, and many uncontrollable
factors that can negatively impact stock price.
- Can I join for a 6-month period instead of a year?
We currently do not offer a 6-month period. If we get numerous requests for this option,
then we may consider this option in the future.
Our company is committed to protecting your privacy while using our site. This is
explained in detail in our
Private Policy page.
- Does your company offer any free trial periods?
We do not offer any free trials. What we do provide to site visitors and non-members is proof that our system works. Unlike
many other trading systems which lack proof, we provide free to the public all of our individual performance tables and charts,
a performance summary table,
and a performance summary bar chart
of the ETFs we cover. These pages are up-to-date, but only our members will have access to the latest signal updates prior to the
last 60 days. Once you review our track record, you will see that our system is doing quite well. Another reason we do not offer
free trials is because there are times when the system may not produce winning returns in the first 30 days, especially when the
market is trading laterally and/or topping patterns. Our system is designed to slowly beat the index funds. We do not want to
give the impression that this a get rich quick scheme. Our system requires patience. There are a lot of other web sites that
virtually promise quick returns. Please be cautious of those systems.

- Will your company manage my account?
At this time, we do not manage any personal accounts for our members, and probably
will not in the future. However, we can direct you to a broker whom we respect or you
can maintain your account with an online broker.
