In my experience, the few vendors I know of that sell profitable systems right out of the box don't actively promote them largely because they don't want every Joe Schmo to have them. Some have some kind of robust "interview" process they make you go through, in addition to legal documents you have to sign before they let you buy.

In my opinion, anyone that believes that is just naive and lacking all experience and using poor judgment.

Vendors making you sign legal documents is simply to prohibit you from writing about them, including how much of a waste of time it was after you (if you) learn from your mistake.

I'm making generalizations on "systems" that are for sale to retail users for say under $1,000,000.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
