How October 2012 Could Lead to better than 42% ROI in 2014
And now is your chance to get a blueprint that details exactly why
In a year when the S&P 500 was up about 31%, why were so many investors losing?
Granted, I too was skeptical for most of 2013’s historic climb in the US stock market. But guess what: I was still profitable.
In fact, I beat the S&P 500 last year ... and by a healthy amount, too.
And it’s all because of a small yet critically important development in October of 2012 that changed everything.
Before I explain, let me pontificate a bit ...
Learn vicariously. Profit directly.
I’ve been in this industry a long time. And I lost a lot of money on the way to becoming a successful trader.
That means I’ve suffered through more than my fair share of trial and error. And that means I’ve learned to understand what works ... and what doesn’t.
What doesn’t work, for example, is what got outfits like John Taylor’s FX Concepts in trouble.
What happened? Last year FX Concepts shut its doors – admitted defeat – because it was stuck on its story.
Or so it seems to me.
I know all about that, as I took my lumps for most of 2012 having been stuck on that same story—the euro.
Fundamentals were so bad in the Eurozone, relative to the United States, that I believed the common currency just had to fall to the US dollar.
Obviously, though, it didn’t have to ... and it sure didn’t.
It’s not just Mr. Taylor’s group that falls into vicious traps like these ...
The Parker Global Currency Managers Index shows the pervasiveness of this problem: At the end of November 2013, the index tracking the performance of currency hedge funds was down -4.71% YTD.
Again, this was in 2013 – a year when a buy-and-hold strategy could have earned you 31% in the stock market. Instead, these pros were dithering in obsolescence.
But I wasn’t. And I credit it to what happened in October 2012.
Resharpening my edge
My name is Jack Crooks. I’m President and Chief Trading Officer of Black Swan Capital, a company I founded almost 12 years ago.
To be fair, hedge funds aren’t paid to buy and hold. (And neither am I.) The basic mission of anyone operating as a “trader” is to shoot the lights out by earning speculative profits.
But with that mission comes a potentially dangerous mindset.
You see, I believe markets are driven by human nature. Investors’ fear and greed generate booms and busts.
Winning traders find an edge. They find a way to harness these forces so they can exploit the boom-bust pattern inherent in markets.
Losing traders simply succumb to these forces.
Trading isn’t easy. In fact, to do it successfully AND consistently is extremely difficult. If someone tells you it’s easy, turn and run away from them as fast as you can.
Until recently, my history of trading read like a steady dose of trial and error. That process brought times of immense emotional and intellectual pain. But every bit helped me develop my edge.
Through it all I had some very good years, some just okay years and some bad years. Most of 2012 contributed to my worst year on record.
That’s when I knew it was time to re-think everything I was doing. It had become clear my trading style no longer fit the nature of the currency market. When did I make this change?
Up until October 2012 I utilized a great deal of fundamentals in my trading. My reliance on thematic views got me stuck on the euro story. You could say Mr. Market took me out to the woodshed that year.
My results changed when I shifted my focus to technical analysis. I now utilize what I refer to as a “modified” Elliott Wave approach.
Instead of a focus on the perfect stylized Elliott Wave pattern, I concentrate on a three-wave pulse with an Elliott framework. This change to my trading framework paid off immediately. And I was excited. Really excited.
I'm so excited, and so satisfied, with my new trading approach, that I'm offering a comprehensive blueprint as an additional bonus to all new subscribers.
By subscribing today you receive a two-part package detailing every little bit of what's led to my successful trading transformation.
That means you get a 9-page introductory special report on how to trade the C Wave of The A-B-C Price Pulse ... as well as over 100 PowerPoint slides on how I built an entire trading framework around "Trading the C Wave."
Best of all, with the bonus package and my daily trading guidance, you've got the potential to earn quite a bit of profit. Here's what I mean ...
The value of the S&P 500 rose 31% last year.
And that’s good. But not as good as 42%!
That’s right. My forex trading signals returned as much as 42% last year. And based on conservative assumptions, a starting account of $50,000 could have become $71,053. And had you traded the same recommendations with an initial account size of $25,000, your return for the year would have been whopping 84%!
Ok, that’s all good. And it’s exactly what you target when trading for speculative profits.
But let me bring it back to the most important part of all this ...
What brought me success is a systematic framework that helps me better define both my risk levels and profit targets, and is basically blind to global macro fundamentals.
What I mean to say is: I’m using a trading system that can produce impressive returns even if the stock market doesn’t shoot the lights out again this year, or next year, or whenever.
I’m using a trading system that doesn’t care if currency funds are at the mercy of central bank policy again this year, as Reuters put it.
This isn't to say I've found the Holy Grail. There isn't one.
But it is to say I've got an edge. A sharp one. And that’s a heck of a lot more than most traders can say. Fortunately, I can let the numbers do the talking.
And you can let them do the talking for you too ...
If you think my forex trading service might suit you, then let me finish by asking you this:
What does a 42% return over twelve months say to you?
Maybe it says you should subscribe to my forex trading signals and start reaping some rewards.
All my best to a profitable 2014,
P.S. The Black Swan Forex annual subscription price of $995 is peanuts compared to what my signals returned last year. In fact, one decent trade can quickly and easily pay for the cost of admission.
