If you trade Futures, Stocks or Options, you can now have in your hands 258 pages of the very best material Larry Connors has ever researched, tested and revealed.
In its 258 pages and 31 chapters you will learn some of the most explosive short-term market strategies ever made available to traders.
Among the 30-plus strategies revealed in the manual are:
THE 15-MINUTE ADX BREAKOUT METHOD (Chapter 20) Especially for day-traders ! This dynamic method teaches you how to specifically identify and trade the most explosive futures and stocks every day. This strategy alone is worth the price of the book. It specifically shows how to choose to enter the same market day after day. By identifying an over-all trend and then waiting for a market to “speak to you” just after the opening, you can take positions where before you might have hesitated or even refrained from entering. This is a day trader’s dream. . . imagine buying low soon after the opening and selling higher late in the session. Day after day – in the same market !
OPTIONS (Section 6) Four chapters and numerous in-depth strategies for trading options. You will learn the strategies used by the Market Makers and a small handful of professionals to consistently capture options gains. Trading volatility with options Trading options with the Connors Vix Reversal Options on stock splits Exploiting overpriced stock sector options
CRASH BURN AND PROFIT (Chapter 11) Huge short-side profits occur when stocks implode. By following the simple rules of this setup you could have shorted Diana Corp at 67 3/8 – a few months later it had collapsed to 1 1/2. This, from one of the most straight-forward entry techniques you’ll ever see !
The CONNORS “VIX REVERSALS” 1, 2 and 3: (Chapter 2) You will learn how the CBOE Volatility Index pinpoints short-term highs and lows in the S&P’s and in the broad market. The average profit per trade is among the highest Larry has ever released in three of the most powerful strategies ever revealed.
ADVANCED VOLATILITY STRATEGIES (Section 2) Numerous never-before-revealed strategies and concepts using volatility measures to identify markets immediately before they explode.
TWO-FOR-ONE MONEY MANAGEMENT (Chapter 28) Specific money management methodology to use which helps maximize profits while keeping your risks to a minimum. It is an exit strategy which allows you to participate in potentially large moves with reduced exposure. You will find you have more confidence in taking trades as it allows you to enter into potentially explosive setups while reducing the risk inherent in these setups. This strategy helps offset your concerns about allowing profits to run.
MODIFYING TRADE SIZE AND STOP PLACEMENT Based on Volatility Measurement (Chapter 5) One of the most successful Commodity Trading Advisors in the world “blew up” his company because he ignored this one rule. His story is used as a lesson to point out the dangers of not paying attention to a market’s changing volatility. You will know how to exploit market volatility when it explodes.
