Students are required to approach the Bootcamp with an open mind and not try to fit what they are learning into their existing trading/indicator framework. The pace of training will be fast, so there will be very limited time to debate the value of other approaches. By joining this bootcamp, you understand and agree that we are presenting a statistically driven stand alone approach to trading equity index futures. Please leave prior learned concepts (trends, pivots, MACD cross, RSI, Bollinger Bands, yada yada yada) at the door to accelerate your ability to absorb the material being presented. It is our teaching experience that the best way to learn this technique is to look at it “through the eyes of a child” – as a Tabula Rasa, blank slate – since it may contradict concepts you may believe to be important, but that in this approach are a dangerous distraction.

If you are frustrated by your current trading performance and aspire to achieve consistent profitability, let us help you – as we’ve helped others – on this journey to professional trading.
