Humans are smart. We have sent men to the moon. We have harnessed nuclear power. We have created beautiful symphonies, paintings and art. We do have our limitations, however, the inability to fully understand and profit from the financial markets runs up against those limitations. Therefore, many traders and analysts have turned to mathematics and computers to attempt to model the markets and predict future price movements. Algorithmic trading systems use mathematical models to analyze financial markets to determine when to buy and sell, as well as to execute and manage orders once they have been placed. Such systems can be manually operated by human traders, partially automated by human traders and algorithms, or fully automated through the use of algorithms in a form of artificial intelligence.

    • Mean Reversion Trading: The VC PMI Automated Algorithm for Trading Stocks, Futures and ETFs by Patrick MontesDeOca and K. Scot Macdonald, PhD
    • The Essential Guide to Trading Economic Events by Eyol Mor

This is not an “easy” money webinar. Mor and MontesDeOca will start you on the road to learning how to trade the markets using major economic events and the VC PMI—an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithmic trading system.

Trading economic events is based on a three-step process:

  • Prepare trade ideas before the event
  • Event occurs
  • Execute trade idea precisely

The VC PMI is a fully automated AI algorithmic trading system available at TradeStation App Store. The model fund based on the VC PMI was founded in 2012 and was up 183% in 2016 and up 528% in 2017.  You can see every trade the fund has made since inception on the EMA website.

The primary driver of the VC PMI is the principle of reversion to the mean combined with a range of analytical tools including fundamental logic, wave counts, Fibonacci ratios, Gann principles, supply and demand levels, pivot points, moving averages, and momentum indicators. The science of Vortex Mathematics is used to combine these elements into a comprehensive, accurate and highly predictive automated AI trading system.

Gold Broke Out Of Its Range; Is $1,484 Next?




The forecast that we made on September 28, 2017, indicated that the targets for gold in 2018 were bullish and were in the $1,386 to $1,484 range.

If we look at the gold market, we have been in a trading range until recently of about $50, and we recently broke out of this trading range.

The VC PMI is identifying that we have entered a level of supply and overbought conditions short term.

Looking Back?

The forecast we made using the Variable Changing Price Momentum Indicator (VC PMI) on September 28, 2017, for the next year appears to have been validated. The forecast that we made on September 28, 2017, indicated that the targets for gold were bullish and were in the $1386 to $1484 range. This was the beginning of the 360-day cycle that began on September 28, 2017. If we look at the price action since that date, we can see that, in fact, this was a major bottom that occurred at the beginning of the 360-day cycle projection. When we look at the current price of gold, we can see that we have broken out this past week into a high that we made on the June gold contract of $1356 on the daily chart.
