Dec 12, 2017

Meeting/webinar

On the road North, between Speers Point and Brisbane.

This session will continue presenting the Mark Twain system which is now in Phase 1 Stage 2, and looks like needing to go to Stage 3 soon, unless the market picks up.  I will also present a wrap up on the LULU trade which I have chosen to watch but not trade.

Dec 05, 2017

Meeting/webinar

Wickham, Speers Point NSW.

This session will adjust the Mark Twain from Phase 1 Stage 1 into the Phase 1 Stage 2.  Sounds fancy, but it is about rolling the bottom of the debit spread up (using a credit spread) to create a risk free trade.  I will also continue monitoring the LULU earnings trade.

Jun 13, 2017

"Pippi's at the Point", Speers Point, NSW.

Member club weekly meeting/webinar

This session is a little unique.  We will be looking at what I mean by counter- trading.  This is where I blend together two systems of opposing nature and tweak the strategies used so that the individual trades work as counter trades to each other.  The aim is that losing trades are offset by the winning trades, but unlike a normal hedge, both trades can be winners in their own right.
