I wanted to say a few words about Patrick and his VC PMI algorithm and services. I’ve been a self directed investor/trader for almost 5 years. Over those years, I have experienced the inconsistency associated with investing based upon “fundamentals based” research and trading services. I have reallocated my portfolio away from bonds and equities and into cash and precious metals of both the paper and physical variety. I’ve also been a pretty avid reader of a number of the authors at Seeking Alpha and it was there that I stumbled upon Patrick MontesDeOca’s posts. His grasp on the overall economy and in particular the role of gold and silver is prescient. The more I read, the more interested I became in his work and services. I recently became a coaching student of Patrick’s and have gotten to know him on a more personal level. I’ve been “around the block”, as they say, and have had many experiences with professionals in the world of trading and investment research. I rarely give testimonials and am not a fan of social media yet felt compelled to write this testimonial. Patrick is extremely intelligent (academically and emotionally). He has a good heart and is serious about teaching people how to be successful through coaching and use of the VC PMI algorithm.
I am a longtime SA reader. I am a believer in gold. I read an article on JNUG from Patrick and a a bullish call.
I then watched him trade it live and make six figures.
I was intrigued with the VCPMI system and subsequently hired Pat to teach me how to trade it.
I am solidly profitable. Been some ups and downs, lessons learned but overall I feel it’s been a great ROI for me and probably only way I would become a more active trader.
I would have no problem recommending Pats services to friends or family and have indeed done so. It’s got risk and not for everyone but these days I am not sure what a sure fire buy and hold is except gold.

Hi Patrick – I have checked out your videos on Ticker Tocker, and they are helpful in that they’re more current than the weekly charts. I will say, my last gold buy used your levels and I got in at a good spot. I didn’t profit too much from them before this last downmove, because I wasn’t selling in the 1722-1737 range that I should have. But that’s OK, because I was long 2 silvers and got out based on your sell levels at 15.715 and 15.92. So, that right there has paid for the years subscription. I am understanding the levels a bit better. I am only looking to build long positions (since the weekly and monthly charts are in uptrends, not really looking to trade counter to those trends) and then sell them out into strength / exhaustion. On my charts / indicators, I see exhaustion and sell my positions, only to see price spike higher once or twice, before then dropping. That’s why I’m not really looking to trade the short side against the long term trend, because with the strength of the market, you could run over quickly!
So, I’m looking for buy levels on weakness to buy MGC / YI contracts and build multi-contract positions, which I then sell out into tops. Right now I’m long in MGC from the 1688 level, trying to get some more, and get some YIs back on. Your sell levels seem more achievable and realistic than some projections, such as Fib extensions, etc., so they’re useful in locking in profit as price moves up.
Anyway, thanks for your patience, I will keep monitoring the videos to get the current levels for buys and sells. They’re helpful conjunction with the indicators I use. I apologize for not getting into the system more before making my judgement. I do think it will be useful in continuing to trade the gold and silver markets.
Best to you,
I want to write this review because in my long career of trading I only met a few people who truly are what they claim to be, ie a successful trader. Patrick is one of them.
I started following his trades and ideas since mid-July 2019 on Ticker Tocker. Apparently he started at the very early start of the Ticker Tocker trading verifying application in January of that year.
What do I like about his approach?
1. Very methodical, he approaches every market from the same trading philosophy. When the rubber band of an asset is too fat stretched, being overbought or oversold, that’s when the vc pmi indicator kicks in. Every day he lays out the different levels of extreme prices BEFORE the market opens. When prices reach one of these levels then he becomes focused on trying to trade the reversal of these levels. No second guessing, no fear of missing out, just methodically applying his logic and trade management.
2. Consistency: By taking most of his signals since July and risking appropriate conservative position size I was able to realize around 30% return with a small drawdown of around 10 % during the summer doll drums. Winning percentage was +/- 70 % with a nice winn to loss ratio of 2.14. These features result in a nice smooth rising equity curve, which is a traders dream. Steady profits, no big drawdowns, creating alpha. ( S&P up 8,2 % during the same period)
3. No BS claims like so many con artists who‘s only goal is to get your money in their pockets. We all know the traders porn of luxury life style, sportscars, jet planes , paying for student loans and all the bla bla bla which they use to mislead people into believing that making money is as easy as just following their “secrets “ and bullet proof methods which will generate 4 digits of return. Not so with Ema trading! What you see is what you get! And yes you have to work for it. That reminds me of a saying that only in the dictionary success precedes work.
4. Limited markets. By focusing on a handful of markets (primarily the metals) you gain insight where the important historical levels have been, thereby eventually reinforcing the daily/weekly levels which are in play and teaching you a consistent methodology. Einstein said that a fool keeps on making the same errors over and over again, thereby expecting different results. With Patrick it is the reverse, he keeps on doing the same good approach over and over again, getting the same positive output. That is called success. Keep on doing what you are good at.
5. There are no secrets in his methodology. On the contrary: He just started a daily live early bird webinar on Ticker Tocker where he explains what he sees in the markets according to his approach. It is the viewer’s choice to take his advices and apply it to the markets, but every day you have the possibility to get a deeper understanding of the ema2trade algorithm.
6. To conclude I think that Patrick in the end teaches you how to fish instead of feeding you fish every day which is worthless. You still have your own responsibility as a trader.
I wish that Ticker Tocker could have a few more of these traders. I think it will be only a matter of time when real traders with real results see the value of this community. Finally a website which a trader can trust. A rare gem….
As a very active and experienced investor and trader in stocks, ETFs, and futures, I am always looking for an edge. I first became aware of Patrick and his Equity Management Academy early in 2019 and, after tracking his recommendations or several months, realized that the algorithms he has developed to direct trades are not only correct more often than they are wrong, but also sharply limit the magnitude of losses while allowing for larger profits on trades.
His recommendations and training have helped me to become a better trader and I have been so impressed that I gave Patrick a six-figure investment on my part or him to manage and invest in his new Blizzard fund, in which I have also had the opportunity to become a small equity investor.
I am looking forward to a long and highly profitable relationship.
I’ve been trading with the Equity Management Academy for the past couple of weeks with Patrick MontesDeOca, the head trader and CEO. I’ve been able to accomplish a profit of more than $14,000 day trading the E- Mini S&P 500 Index during this period of time. Patrick has an incredible system and process, which helps me understand the VC PMI artificial intelligence application for my self-directed trading. The service that I get is transparent, precise, clear and simple enough for me to understand the application and execution of this incredible algorithm. My investment of $1,800 has returned more than $14,000 in two weeks. It has been worth every cent to take the three-month trial. I highly recommend it.

I want to thank you for the support I have received these past two weeks. Since joining EMA2 Academy, I also want to say that the VC PMI is one of the simplest but the most effective strategy I have tried the past two years of trading.
1. I got interested in trading two years ago and have spent money on different and indicators and strategy setups that seemed good but in the end did not work. Some were complicated and the “stuff” that was on the chart made it difficult to see anything. I also blew two accounts. I did not lose a million dollars but 10,000 seems like quite a bit to me.
Since starting, I have consecutive days of winning. The lowest day was $400 dollars and the largest was $1060 using two contracts.
2. The VC PMI is simple. The rules are also simple to follow. The set ups are easy to see and there is no extra information needed. If the levels are hit, these sets up the “trigger.” Wait for the next candle to close above or below depending on what level and that is all to watch for. No emotions are involved.
3. The probabilities are what is amazing to me. Being a math teacher, I have a understanding about the probabilities. When, the probabilities are 90 to 95 percent in your favor, there is nothing else that can come close to that. Yes you can lose a trade but when it is one out of ten, you are well ahead of any other trading strategy out in the public.
Is there some cons to the program, I am not sure if scalping will work. Time is needed for the levels to work. William Gann who was a renowned trader mentions that time is the most important element of trading.
If you want a simple strategy where you have the highest probability of winning, VC PMI is the answer.
Testimonials for Equity Management Academy,
WOW! I am very impressed. Within one week the profits, even considering my blunders, have been greater than the cost of working one on one with Patrick for the next three months. That’s right, the cost of the next three months of one on one coaching and teaching was covered, actually four days in to it be exact! I am floored. Just what he taught me and explained this week TOTALLY changed the entire way I comprehend the market. A week ago at a time I might have sold or panicked, I now see the exact opposite, its more than likely time to hold on if not buy more. I understand Patrick, sometimes he seems frustrated with things I say but its clear its only because he wants me to succeed. I know this is the first week but I can tell by the end of this 3 month education I will be trading closer to the level of someone with 30+yrs experience rather than the year of experience I actually have.
I have used the services of the “Equity Management Academy” for the last three years in trading in the gold, silver and energy markets. The training materials have been very useful especially the trading room with charts. As a retired medical engineer I can identify with the daily and monthly buy and sell limits. The “mean” v2 information really works! Patrick MontesDeOca has provided needed consultative services “on demand”. The e-mail and texting services are timely and have produced good results; January and February profits near $20,000.
During the two months during which I have been a member of Equity Management Academy, I am very impressed with the accuracy of the levels for inter-day and swing trading on futures and ETFs for gold and silver. By using the published daily and weekly levels, and following the rules that were carefully explained by Patrick MontesDeOca, my net gains have paid for more than one year of the trade room. In addition, the excellent coaching that I received from Patrick has helped me to avoid major losses.

I am quite excited to report that I have a most profitable start to 2015. I have just closed out my seventh consecutive profitable trade in the March 2015 Silver futures for a total of $10,750 since the start of the year. I must say the system is quite predictive and accurate, especially when buying at or below B2 and moving up to code or S1. I really appreciate your kind instruction and moments notice assistance with my trades and investments. I sense the markets are changing to a more bullish mode, so spread the word. I hope I can continue this trend moving forward.
Much appreciation and gratitude,
I have been trading for 5 years now. In that time, I’ve had several mentors. From the beginning, though, I felt you were different. You told me you would feel successful when my family was abundantly successful. That meant a lot to me. Who would’ve thought it… a trader with a huge heart! And what I’ve learned from you would be hard to put a price tag on. You understand the psychology of the trader better than anyone I’ve met. Your mentorship, in combination with the VC Daily Code, has helped me bridge the gap between my emotions as a trader and the reality of how the market moves.
The VC system that you created is a transformative and invaluable tool! It has allowed me to strategically plan my trades and follow where the energy of the market is heading. With your system, I get a bird’s-eye view before market shifts occur. I’m no longer directionless in the market. This system has proven itself time and again. Thanks to the VC, I have become a more confident trader.
I wanted to thank you for ensuring my family’s financial future. Thanks to you, I see myself as a lifelong trader, prosperous beyond what I ever thought I could be. Now I am actually building my family’s wealth. My dreams are becoming reality with the VC system.

p.s. Wayne Dyer once said, “Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.” This is what your system does… allows the trader to tune into the market in a way no other tool does.
Patrick provides real market intelligence, often with uncanny accuracy. We haven’t been using the service long but it has impressed us enough to sign up for a year’s service. We trialed the $1-a-day service and were truly amazed at the results. Happy to say having signed up for a year it has literally paid for itself in the first week.
I would like to thank you for assisting me in achieving my trading
objectives with your monthly cyclical energy patterns and research. It
has allowed me to trade less, yet achieve greater results. Last year was
very costly to me due to excessive trading and having too many wash
trades, due to brokerage companies having to report wash trades to the
I.R.S. last year.
Knowing when to expect corrections and major rallies is a huge
advantage, as well as minor corrections and short term tops. I also
appreciate your assistance in certain trading vehicles.
I highly recommend your services.
I wanted to express my appreciation and excitement regarding my recent trading success using the VC Daily Code. With your patient instruction and real-time advice this week I have used the VC Daily Code for the December 2012 Silver Futures Contract to realize over $7,700 in profits. This is by far the best futures trading tool I have ever used. With the current market conditions and the future outlook for precious metals, I hope to continue this success. Thanks so much for your assistance and advice.
