As you know, Market Timing accuracy can mean the difference between having more winning trades or more losing trades.
Statistics claim that the great majority, some say 85% some say 90% or higher, are considered losing traders.
That is a pretty sad but preventable statistic.
I have been trading since the late 1980's and continue to this day. There is nothing I like better to do than to get up each day and put on and take off trades. Winning the majority of my trades and taking a few small losses really floats my boat.
The other thing I really enjoy is sharing my work with like minded traders via our FDates Market Timing Membership. If it were not for this membership, I would not be the trader I am today. There is something to be said about teaching others while doing.
REVERSAL TURN DATES
A big part of my daily analysis of the FUTURES and FOREX markets is to calculate Reversal Turn Dates (called FDates).
When you look at a price chart, what do you see?
You will always see prices making swing (pivot) tops and bottoms.
For most traders, the goal of using chart indicators is to improve market timing as to when these swing (pivot) tops and bottoms form.
Why would you want to do that?
Because there is no better place to get more profits and have smaller losses than entering a trade as close as possible to a swing top or bottom.
FDates are calculated each week and put in report form so that our trading members can KNOW IN ADVANCE when to expect these swing tops and bottoms to form. FDates are accurate to within a single price bar of short-term and intermediate-term (weekly) swing turns.
When the FDate Report shows a Reversal Turn Date (FDate) for a particular trading day or week, you best get ready for a swing top or bottom to form on the price chart!
TRADE FROM SWING TOPS AND BOTTOMS
Are your indicators getting you into trades at these market swing bottoms and tops?
If you find them falling short of giving you real confidence in taking trades, or you feel that they could use a bit more help, I suggest that you consider adding FDate Reversal Turn dates to your trading arsenal.
You do not have to give up your indicators. I use a few of them myself along with the FDates, such as the MACD, Stochastic, maybe some moving averages and even the Keltner Bands.
The indicators are mostly used to determine oversold and overbought conditions, or in the case of the MACD, some indication that momentum may be weak. Then I plan my trades using FDates to pick the swing tops and bottoms to enter from.
FDates simply makes your most trusted indicators even better!
MARKET TIMING IS KEY!
Many traders have greatly improved their trading confidence and ability to profit with lower risk once they started to trade the markets with FDates along with their indicators of choice.
W. D. Gann taught that TIMING IS EVERYTHING! And he was right, because once you get your market timing down, you start to become more confident in your trading decisions and that works wonders for your trading emotions.
So if you REALLY want to become a proficient, highly confident, consistently profitable trader, YOU MUST LEARN PRECISION MARKET TIMING!
We can help.
The testimonials on this page and throughout this site come from traders who sent in emails without being asked to do so. I only asked permission to put them on my site.
"My broker (discount of course) asked me today what I am doing different to place trades. I asked him why. He said he has been following my account closely and I am up 38% for the year [due to trading FDates]. None of his other clients are even close! I guess he didn't think I knew that. Ha! Ha!" Jim P.
"...we're all so used to Rick's being able to time market moves with such incredible precision that we've forgotten how absolutely amazing this is! Does anybody remember what trading was like before you discovered FDates? I do -- for me, it was a lot of hard work and frustration mixed with trips to the bank to wire more money into my account!
Now what's it like? I called my broker today to have HIM send ME money to pay for the vacations (plural) I took this summer. THAT'S how it should be! And with CEPPRO [a later version of the FDates program], I look forward to even more vacations! Hooray FDates!" John R.
By knowing when a top or bottom is likely to occur, you can use tighter initial stop-loss orders (less risk exposure) and start entering profit sooner (less drawdown and more profit potential).
FDates provides a great deal of confidence in taking trades with less risk.
"As you know I was virtually dead and buried in this business a year ago, my only scepticism regarding FDates was the possibility that I was just chucking good money after bad in the vain attempt to find a magical trade that would keep me going.
I had already tried many systems and spent a small fortune, you were the only one that didn't fleece me, the only one that provided a workable and honest system, sure it was difficult to understand in the early days, but what isn't that's new, and boy was it worth it!!!!!!"

HIGHLY ACCURATE MARKET FORECASTS
Yes, not only do I provide our members with highly accurate reversal (swing) turn dates, but I also produce market forecasts as well.
For over 20 years I have been forecasting the markets with a high degree of accuracy, many of which have been published on various trading sites in advance of the event.
This is accomplished by using FDates as my main market timing indicator.
As a member of our FDates Market Forecasting membership, you will have access to all my market commentaries as well as the turn dates.
HOW OUR FDATE MEMBERSHIP WORKS
When you join the FDate Precision Timing Membership, you are provided access to our members-only site. This site is located at http://www.fdatesforum.com.
Within our members-only site, you will have access to our weekly published FDate Report that contains the DAILY and WEEKLY turn dates for the markets we cover.
Lessons are provided in both textual and video formats that members can access at any time.
Our members-only site also provides a section where members can discuss trading with other members, and can read my take on the markets in the Market Forecasting section.
Please note: While we also offer trading software products, they are not required in order to trade using FDates. However, you should have access to price charts (both Daily and Weekly) to take full advantage of trading FDates. Our Previsions Charting program was developed with FDates trading in mind, so we do offer it as part of the Premium Membership plan.
DISCOVER PRECISION MARKET TIMING AT NO RISK!
This page contains quotes from actual traders as a result of their experience in using FDates and being part of this membership.
These are only a very small sampling of the numerous letters I have received over the years.
However, if you are still skeptical, I can understand that.
During my early years of developing trading skills I had fallen for many claims and promises. While the experience overall has actually made me a better trader, I still am careful before investing in any product or offer.
And as you have read from some of our traders in the comments above, you and I are not the only ones that have been duped from scamming individuals.
Many find it hard to believe that you can lower your risk and catch many profitable trades by trading something like FDates. So I completely understand skeptism.
"Since February, my losses total $684 and my earnings are over $12,000. Well, the story has gotten more interesting since then, and I want to share that story with you.
A broker friend of mine claims your system is no better than "fortune telling." He argues that I know nothing about trading and my success is just sheer luck. In fairness, he is partly right. I do know nothing about trading. To prove that point, my friend had me answer the sample exam for Part 1 of a home study course for people who wnt to become commodities brokers. Of the 23 questions, I got 9 right!
So here's what happens next. On 6/15 heating oil reaches a new high and I think to myself that 6/15 is an fdate. So I go short around 4650. The market moves down and on 6/21 we hit another fdate, so I get out around 4450. To me, that's a nice 200 point trade, and I'm happy.
My friend says I'm a fool. Then I watch the action on Tuesday, 6/22. What do I see? I see that heating oil bottomed out around the same point on both Monday and Tuesday. I call my friend to ask him if this is a plateau bottom, and he calls me an idiot. Well, it's a plateau bottom to me and Rick says to watch these formations closely. Besides, we're at fd+1 [one bar of FDate]. Moreover, the support is at 38% retracement.
What do I do? I go long. On Wednesday, heating oil shoots up over 100 points. Guess who's along for the ride? Right, me.
OK, my friend thinks I'm an idiot. So what. My friend says the system can't be valid if it hasn't been backtested for 10 years. So what. My friend takes losses left and right. So what, I don't.
All I know is that in a week's time I picked up 300 points in profit. I'm having so much fun doing this that I might do it again on Friday!"

**Note: Essentially there is no such thing as a 'free' trade. However, most trades where you are able to move your stop-loss to breakeven will either end up in profit or end with no loss. On some occasions, however, the market can gap at the open or move unusually fast causing the stop to be filled at a price different than intended. In such situations, you may incur some loss. No method or technique can prevent these occasional situations from occuring.
