... a straightforward approach to trading


What we do ?

The KISS-TRADER.COM course is dedicated to the trader who is looking to use reglular indicators and apply them in a systematic but discretionary manner. 

The KISS-TRADER.COM chatroom is available on a subscription basis for 4 - 6 hours a day for those wishing to receive signals generated with the KISS-TRADER.COM Trading Techniques. The chatroom, though it uses the techniques taught in the course, is all about PERFORMANCE. This is its function. Social chit chat and blase opinions should be kept to a minimum. Trade calling using the course techniques is the function of the room. Course techniques will not be openly referred to in the room and exist for course members only.

The course combines a number of indicators used in a disciplined, a unique but simple way in order to enter trades. Moreover, this is done with strict regard to risk-reward parameters, which take priority in regard to trading descisions.

KISS-TRADER concentrates on intraday trading but daily, weekly and monthly chart information is also used in trade determination. This top down logic however also allows the system to be used for position trading as well as intra day moves. We concentrate on intraday movement as there are natrually more opportunities than on more occasional position trades.

Please subscribe in order to receive our occasional newsletter, highlighting bigger moves as they come up.

The bottom in the market was called using these techniques at 7156 and 7204 on the min Dow futures contract with less than a 10 point stop. The maket has rallied over 1500 points since these live calls in March 2009, made in Secretariat's Trading World, where I was before KISS-TRADER.COM.
 

The Setups

After 22 years in the financial markets I have learn't a few small lessons. The main lesson is that the function of the market is to catch most people out most of the time. The other thing I have learnt is that it is possible to make money in the market, and that a fair minority of traders are making a living trading. Of these a very small number of traders around the world are making considerable sums of money. I have also learn't that most of the traders in the latter category are doing so using VERY SIMPLE techniques very effectively. It is a number of these techniques I try to apply in the market and teach to you.

Think of the market as a funnel. The function of the funnel is to funnel money from the majority of traders - undiciplined, unfocused, emotional and erratic in nature to the minority of traders who are calm, disciplined and have the logic to see the wood from the trees. These are the traders who can at the very least follow a technique or a system effectively and without becoming distracted or overloaded and to those who have such a clear vision of the market and the risk reward picture they are effectively money making machines who can take money out the the market at will most of the time using what are most often simple techniques.

Remember, the function of the markets is to mislead. All that stands between you and losses is your ability to understand and apply the correct logic to the markets.

The course teaches that logic. The chat room shows the logic being applied.
 

Is it easy?

No. Simple does not mean easy. Until you have mastered what you are doing of course. Then its relatively easy. Unlike many trading websites who either imply that what they do is some kind of holy grail and all you have to do is subscribe and then the going is easy  this is not an easy game. This is just the beginning. 

We hope to give you a better chance of succeeding but this is not for everyone. Whether or not you subscribe with us, or take the course, remember that if you are losing consistently - stop immediately and get your game plan right before going into the markets.

And if you are under capitalised either trade very small or do not trade.
 

What markets do we conecentrate on ?

These technqiues work on most markets. We concentrate on a few:

YM -  e-mini Dow futures
The underlying futures to the Dow 30 cash.


ES - e-mini S&P 500 futures

The underlying futures market to the S&P 500 cash index US stocks.
 

DAX 30 futures 

The German Shares Index (Deutsche Aktienindex). This underlying future tracks the DAX 30 cash index, made up of large German companies such as Addidas, Allianz, BASF, Bayer, BMW, Commerzbank, Continental, Daimler AG, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Börse, Lufthansa, Deutsche Post, Deutsche Telekom, E.ON, FMC, Henkel, Hypo Real Estate, Infineon, Linde, MAN, Merck, Metro, Münchener Rück,RWE, SAP, Siemens, ThyssenKrupp, TUI and Volkswagen.


 

NYMEX  Light Sweet Crude Oil

This contract trades monthly and can provide excellent  trading oppotunities for those with substantial accounts. 

We do not trade the mini Crude contract due to wide spreads and recommend the larger contract is only traded by those with larger accounts, as the market is volatile and the point value is $1 for a 1cent move in the price. We usually trade the spot month contract and Crude trades all 12 months of the year for delivery. It is one of the largest futures markets in the world and trades both electronically and on the floor.

"Light sweet crude oil" is the most sought-after version of crude oil as it contains a disproportionately large amount of these fractions that are used to process gasoline, kerosene, and high-quality diesel. The term "sweet" originated because the low level of sulfur provides the oil with a mildly sweet taste and pleasant smell. Nineteenth century prospectors would taste and smell small quantities of the oil to determine its quality.
 

FOREX /FX/ Foreign Exchange

The Forex market is the largest in the world. This market has exceptionally different, and sometimes difficult behavioural charicteristics from other markets, as do different currencies. These are covered in the course.

Primarlily we concentrate on the Euro vs US$ EUR/USD and the Pound vs Dollar  GBP/USD.
 

What kinds of stop losses to do take and profit targets are used?
 
 





The default  "stop" on the S&P mini (Symbol ES) is 1 point. For the EURUSD Interbank cash market the stop is 20 ticks and for the emini Dow Jones (symbol YM) the default stop is 20 points. Stops should be assumed to be these levels unless otherwise mentioned. 
 

Why don't you offer refunds?

We operate a strict no refunds policy at this point. This is because there is a significant minority of individuals on the net who take out services  then demand a refund and had every intention of doing so from the start. We want to discourage such practices. Therefore, we occasionallly offer open times and paid trial periods when people can check out the room. Otherwise its a paid service on either a weekly or a monthly basis. Likewise the course offers no refunds. If you are not sure what results the course can offer then please check out the trading chat room first. All trades there are generated using materials taught in the course.

We offer people the opportunity to check out the room and decided if they want to be there. We make no performance guarantee, either for our calls and more especially for your account. 
 

Do you publish your performance?

In general, no. There are a number of reasons for this. Claims of performance can easily be disputed on a number of grounds, whether valid or not. For example, there may be a delay in transmission times, so we could claim we send out a sell signal  for example to sell at x price when the price already has reached y point by the time you got a chance to act on the data. How can we then claim this equates to "real" performance. Often of course, you will get a better price in the market from that announced either immediately or a few seconds later. However sometimes the market just flies off in a particular direction and so in the final analysis you have to say "Self. Does this work for me?" We believe that it works for many of our subscribers, otherwise they would not be paying to listen to us.

We invite you judge for yourself. That is the only determination at the end of the day. The course has been introduced so that you can see the signals for yourself in advance of their occurence.
