Each service also gets access to his weekly newsletter called Successful Trader, where he outlines what it takes to be successful in trading the markets. Below is his October performance update for his Futures service:
What better way to celebrate Veteran’s Day by joining Ian and learning his successful and disciplined approach to trading.

Copper Setup
 
The price chart above shows the latest completed trade on the Copper (HG) December futures contract. Posting began for Ian Mitchell’s Futures service around mid-October, and the spreadsheet below shows the results thus far for trade alerts before November 1st. Even with the current track record, the power of a positive risk/reward can already be seen.
 
The current average winner is 2.37 times the average losing trade, allowing a trader to stay profitable with a 42.85% win ratio. These results do not include commissions, and results may vary based on what price orders are filled at. The number of contracts shown are based on an attempt to keep the risk as similar as possible on each trade. In this case, the stop risk is kept close to $2000.00 on each trade, based on the tick value of each market and stop distance from entry.
 
October Results
 
Going forward, the target will be to reach a 50% win ratio with at least a 2.0 profit factor after a longer series of trades.

The recent increased volatility casued great movement in the market, allowing for some great setups to unfold as the S&P 500 sold off, then sky-rocketed upward to new highs. For a directional trader, this is an exceptional time to participate in the market when using a legitimate strategy combined with great discipline.

As for the markets, here’s our model which has inverted, but is also one of 3 of our cycles predicting things should slow down in the next two weeks:
stock market timing
What’s also important about the above model (that we put together last year) is that it’s calling for a year end top, then a larger move lower. That’s our prediction for the markets.
As for Ian, he grew up in Alaska and would hunt and fish during the summer and snowmobile in the winter. As a marine, he was deployed twice to the Middle East. He’s returned to Alaska and after a successful career in real estate, has been a professional trader for the past decade.

Here’s this morning’s Daily Stock Barometer:
 
Election Day
 
Good morning Traders,
 
As election day comes to a close, we’ll have a better view of the power in the government over the next two years.  I’m not a
political person, but you have to monitor it as it can cause some shifts in investing strategies.  Those shifts have the potential to impact the
market which sits atop a precipice. 
 
In today’s article, we’ll view our cycles and timing indicators.  We’re in the window for a reversal over the next two
weeks.  So the caution flag is raised.
 
First, we have our inverted version of our model that we published last year.  As we get close to 2015, I’ll start modeling next
years market.  But for this one, I extended it into 2015 because it shows such a significant year end move.
 
forecast
 
Next, is our 10/20/40 cycles, which had us looking for an October low.  Now we have a 10 week cycle high date coming
in.  Markets rarely follow these cycles rigidly, and the timing of actual bottoms to cycle bottoms can tell us a little about the state of the
market.  For example, the fact that this bottom was right justified (came in late) is bearish.
 
stock market cycles
 
Our 35 day trading cycle, which nailed the 8/5 bottom, is approaching an 11/12 date, looking like it’s inverted. 
 
35 day
 
Going to a stock market internal indicator, we have a potential top.
 
internals
 
And finally, in this view of our stock market timing tool, we are approaching a top.
 
barometer
 
As we enter this window for a top, we’ll likely issue our covered calls first, as we don’t expect the markets to be able to make much
headway over the next month.  But that doesn’t mean the markets will crash.  One can only hope… 
 
These indicators are all about timing.  As we’ve been doing since 2000 and since we went on our own and
started this site to help traders time the market – all our indicators are about knowing when to buy and when to sell.  While the market is
random, it can be predicted to a point.  And we’ll continue to give you our unbiased view, based on facts, not news or false narrative.
 
That being said, the election is a timing component that can play into the markets.  When we see such a convergence of
indicators with a ‘news’ event, the potential for a shift in the markets is huge.  So stay tuned…
 
Regards,

Market Summary

The current version of Easy Money Options
Income (EMOI) articles began publishing in April 2014 and herein is the past six
months’ trade results. As presented below, we executed a total of 22 trades,
with 21 of these closing with a gain. Displayed
below are the details for each trade. The Opening Trade date is when the ‘Trade
Alert’ was published for the trade. Each trade was closed out on the date
associated with the Closing Trade. The gain or (loss) for each spread is shown
along with a Summary Total (year-to-date accumulated result of all the trades).
The trades do
not
include commissions and fees. Also, results will
vary based on the number of contracts traded, and at what price the orders are
filled
.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Note

As a side note, increased market volatility over past
month has made it more difficult to execute opening trades at recommended limit
prices. Suggested limit prices for each option contract are the published quotes
at the time an article is written. Generally, in the past, trade suggestions
were posted in the evening for execution the following day. And with record low
volatility it was usually easy to get into trades the next day. Now with daily
triple-digit market moves and higher volatility, it may take a couple of days to
execute the trade at an acceptable price.. Keep in mind that in the ‘Trade
Setup’ for Trade Alerts we suggest a minimum credit amount that we would accept.
So that generally, even if the recommended prices are not available, we would
accept the suggested minimum to do the trade.

While we review our charts every morning, on the weekend we take a deeper dive into the data.  And this chart came out causing some concerns for the market.  Can you say global economic slowdown…

ECRI WLI GROWTH INDEX

We consider ourselves experts on monitoring market price, internal and sentiment data.  Periodically we’re asked to look at new sentiment indicators and we have added some to our data base.  We monitor them for years before we start using conclusions from the data. 

Here’s one that came on our radar recently:

Traders-Talk.com Actual Position Poll

This will be a brief update.  Why?  Because in review of the data, there are only 36 people/traders that participate in the results…

Really?  It’s not even worth your time to look at it.  This sample size is not statistically significant.  Yet there are those out there that tout its significance – interesting to note that they’re also tied to the site which produces the data. 

Don’t fall for it.  You can get AAII data for free on the internet and it’s statistically significant.

Frank Delaney IV Market Pulse

The S&P which I use as a general guide had a difficult week closed near its lows at approximately 1886.00. 

S&P Dec Contract

The market has most likely made its highs for the year. I suggested we were oversold last week. The spike in volatility this past week suggests that we are short term very oversold I wrote last week that we would most likely test the prior week’s lows after the jobs number came out. I suggested a traded in HAL from the long side. The market tested its lows rallied strongly Thursday. I felt my theory for the week was working well till the market fell apart and closed near its lows Friday. If you were long HAL you would have been stopped out. Capital preservation is very important in such a volatile environment. I believe the market will rally this week but we have probably seen the highs for the year. Technicals indicate a short term high volume blow off low. When I begin my market pulse letter in the next few weeks I will send daily observations on specific recommendations. I will keep positions limited to 3 to 5 positions. I think there will be many opportunities on the short side in the weeks to come.

 HAl Oct 10th 2014

I believe HAL is set up for a retracement higher to the 62 to 65 level in the next couple weeks. The precipitous fall in oil has taken all oil related stocks with it. When the market gets its footing early this week oils service companies will retrace their sharp declines over the last few weeks. Keep an eye on oil to stabilize and make a higher low this week. Discipline and patience will set up some great short opportunities over the next few months. Selling into this break at this point is inappropriate. Looking forward to helping you be your best as we move forward. Patience and discipline.

Have a good week.
