Let's not replace one form of advertising with another. Better to keep vendor promotional material in a single place under a organized review thread.

Someone that only posts after-the-fact screenshots and talks about win percentages and profit, but not losses, risk, and expectancy, is not writing a journal worth reading anyway.

I love looking at after the fact screenshot, especially when they are advertising a vendor, as in this case, Flux Capacitor. However, I do not know whether they are as good as the recent poster seem to think they are.

So I am going to show my after the fact charts. Whether I took any of the trades that I have highlighted, does not matter, as long as someone offers me $10000.00 to tell them my secret.

I can continue to post these fantasy trades if anyone is interested, but I cannot guarantee that you will make any money. But experience tells me you will end up losing your hard earned cash.

Enjoy. Dudley

TraderJim would you care to start your own journal with real time postings of some of your trades. Heck, maybe I'll learn something new.

I also think we should keep the focus of this thread solely on BackToTheFuture.

Sazon ... I will consider your suggestion of starting a journal of real time postings of trades. Thanks.

Totally agree. It sounds like he has a combination of systems he is successful with so a journal might be a good idea. We may be able to learn something from it. Otherwise he is getting away from the spirit of vendor review a little bit, IMO.

Does anyone really use only one vendors system by itself (the grail)? If not, how can u have just a Flux or "x" review?

Mr. Dudley ... Thanks for posting your beautifully drawn charts! One notable difference between your charts and the ones I've posted is that your charts don't indicate where you executed your trades. Mind re-posting where your trades were executed? Thanks in advance.

Hi Mike ... in the spirit of trying to encourage and promote information that can assist other traders, I was attempting to illustrate how I use the software to assist my decision process. Not sure why you were not more welcoming from the start, and decided to take a hostile approach, versus asking politely for further clarification, or more detail, which I'd be happy to provide?

Certainly I encounter losses, and of course losses are a part (essential actually) of the trading landscape. I'd be happy to post those charts if you would like to see them. I do manage my risk. That is the key to this game versus the "signal." I typically risk $200-300/contract traded depending on the entry of the trade into the system I trade, and the instrument traded. I know my entry and exits before entering the trade. If the trade is a swing-trade (30-60 minute chart trade), the stop has to be increased by 2.5 - 3x the amounts mentioned (depending on the instrument traded & placement of the entry). As far as expectancy, I am a discretionary trader, and use the FLUX TCMs as one component to the decision process to execute a trade, or terminate a trade, in the overall system. Therefore specifically, I would not define outcome expectancy on this software as a stand alone. I would not use this software as a stand alone to decide to enter a trade, but that is just my trading style and personality.

It was an immensely useful component to trading Crude today on the short side for great profits. Again, it was used as a tool in combination with my system that helped stacked the odds in my favor. And that's what this game is all about--stacking the odds in your favor, while at the same time accepting the risk that you could be 100% wrong.

You posted your review. Move on. Anything further in this thread reads like an advertisement and questions your intentions and affiliations.

Well, I just bit the bullet and am now trying to learn this system. Ron, the daily web-instructor does an excellent job, extremely patient, and speaks as he has actually traded before. He is a more mature businessman and knows the Flux system backwards and forwards. Not sure about the younger Michael, if he trades or not. He is the salesman part of their business. Now the system itself is "ghz" hungry; otherwise, you are talking s-l-o-w chart reactions. I had to get additional RAM for my 2.8 ghz 6-core. I may break for a new 5i or better. Have to say, I've seen some terrific signals by looking back with the software 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks and then analyzing what the signals mean on the day of trading. They need a trial period though. The thought of dropping a couple of thousand bucks for more signals should allow one some hands on time. Michael is a bit sales-pushy - "you'll get this 'IF' you get onboard now", and lacks Ron's patience. Once the purchase is made and you are inside the website, with password, etc., you will find that "other" indicators are there for a price. Monthly leases run an additional $195.00 for a special grouping of indicators, and there are some indicators that can be singularly purchased. Every trader knows that you cannot offer your bank-account to an indicator without confirmation of other items on our lists. Flux gives plenty of signals depending on how you configure your charts. Al Brooks price action course is an excellent learning tool to compliment Flux. I am looking hard everyday at this system and will be glad to post my outcomes as they develop. One gent on the Big Mike team has already enjoyed good success with an NG trade. Look at his chart. Congrats on that trade, sir. I'd like to have an actual chat room develop to share results and learning experiences with the Flux. With so many moving parts to it, I'd like to speak with someone who has narrowed down the use of Flux-tools. More later . . .

Interesting observation about the vendors. I got the flux about 5 yrs ago. Michael was obviously the suit and Ron was a trader with or without the flux.. Seems like even with good tools and guidance Michael is still just the suit and cannot trade. The lesson is (myself included) if u dont have basic trading talent, no tools will make u successful in this business if u really have no talent, at least none I have seen so far.

I posted my first comment about Flux Trading System last week. Just a quick note today about the CL. Last night I gave the charts a look and could see that the CL "might" make a move at 08:33 CDT this morning. The analytics behind the Flux and the histograms "predict" possible moves. This morning, the CL moved short at 08:34:10 on the 512 tick chart. To me, one of the beautiful parts of the Flux is that if the move indeed follows the signal, then I do not have to stay at the screen long hours, I can pinpoint, as I did this morning, when to be in front of my computer. I arrived at 08:15 to watch.

Last night, I also took note of a possible NQ signal to go long at 09:33 CDT today July 15th. Ron, the webmaster in the training garage each morning, tells of "inversions" and how to spot and trade them. In other words, you do not just go immediately with a long or short signal. By following Ron's rules this morning, the NQ 512 tick chart went "short" against the long signal. Following Ron's inversion rules would have made NQ a successful trade to the short-side at 09:37:19.

I admit I am an early user of this system and still testing the Flux but it certainly looks good so far. I'll post more info as time and the system reveals. Best wishes to all. bopwillie

Note to Big Mike: If direct contact by phone or email is ok'd by the site rules, I would not mind sharing.
