Free Options Trading Webinar August 28

Join Us This Thursday Night As Options Expert Ron Ianieri Shows You How He Trades Options, And How You Can Use These Simple But Powerful Techniques To Maximize Your Returns And Limit Your Risk!

And... Even Better...

You'll Discover How To Master These Strategies In The Shortest Time Possible!"

I'd like to invite you to a very special webinar happening this Thursday evening.

This webinar has a provocative topic: "How To Master Options In The Shortest Time Possible!"

On this webinar, Ron Ianieri from Options University is going to reveal some of his easy to learn...

... yet very effective and HIGHLY PROFITABLE...

... options trading strategies, and...

... how you can master every one of his techniques in the shortest amount of time possible.

These are the same powerful techniques he learned through the hard-knocks training of live floor trading on the Philadelphia Exchange...

... where he "honed his chops" for over 15 years.

And these stratgies were (formerly) the closely-guarded, little-known, "hush-hush" techniques...

.. kept confidential among the hard-core, battle-hardened floor traders.

These strategies are THAT POWERFUL.

They had to be.

Because they gave the floor traders the "edge" they needed to stay in business.

After just a few minutes with Ron, you'll begin to get a feel for his intense knowledge - and equally intense passion - for options.

And it will undoubtedly begin to rub off on you!

But be warned - once you see how Ron unveils the unique and many advantages of options trading "his" way...

... you will never see stocks in the same light again...

...and you may actually decide to change the way you trade stocks (at least the way you have in the past)...

... forever.

Click here for more information, and to register for the free webinar:


Just think.

You can now get your hands on the EXACT INFORMATION Ron used to train some of the top traders on Wall Street.

Some of these traders have gone on to amass millions of dollars of options trades for their respective trading firms.

Nope.

This is not your ordinary options training class "everybody else" teaches, where you simply learn a handful of trading strategies...

... without HAVING A CLUE about HOW and WHEN to use each of the strategies.

Not knowing that will get you KILLED in options trading.

Ron will supply the details of how you can avoid killing your portfolio this Thursday night.

And that's just one example of how OU's options training differs from every other training company out there.

To see what I mean, why not join Ron this Thursday night for a LIVE session with him...

... ONE-ON-ONE?

One evening spent with Ron could change your whole life.

I can say that with complete confidence, since OU now has dozens and dozens of student testimonials on file saying that very same thing.

Here's that link again to register for the webinar:

Oh yeah, there's one more thing...

OU is preparing a "special report" on options trading that will ONLY BE AVAILABLE to attendees of Thursday night's webinar.

Details to be furnished on the webinar itself, but believe me...

You'll be able to take your options trading to the "Next Level" with the information contained in this special report!

I hope to see you this Thursday night on the webinar.

Good day and good trading!

Invest2Success

P.S. Wouldn’t you like to know how a world-class options trader
decides which options to trade each day?

Well, now you can.

Join us this Thursday night for a f.r.e.e. LIVE webinar and...

... discover how YOU TOO can master options trading in the fastest time possible.

And get your hands on the "Webinar Attendees Only" special report mentioned above.

Here's that web page again for more information...

Weekly Stock Pick

I come up with my stock picks by scanning about 7000 stocks with a trading software that screens for certain chart patterns that provides what is called a low risk high reward trade or investment. Low risk meaning, the stop-loss exit point in case the market proves me wrong is relatively small compared to the potential reward in case the market proves me right.

I’m looking for trades and or investments that can potentially provide me a 3:1 plus reward risk ratio. Meaning, I can potentially make three times gain as opposed to the amount I would lose. Doing this is the difference between smaller linear returns, or much larger exponential returns. Doing this over the long term provides me good returns with minimum losses, at least in theory anyway. So by following the system, I have a long term plan for success in the markets. Deviating from any reliable trading system is a recipe for financial disaster.

The scans are purely technical analysis from the charts. After analysis of the scanned stocks, then I narrow my pick down with past and forward analysis of the company and its fundamentals and the story behind their fundamentals. After that I look at their competitors and how they make affect the company in question on their market share and profitability going forward. I try to keep the analysis simple. Don’t want to waste time energy and money on analysis paralysis. That’s what my stop-loss is for in case I’m wrong, and everyone is wrong in the markets, they just keep the loss small is why they are long-term winners.

Stop-loss can be set into online trading account, thereby letting the market makers see your order. Or you can us a mental stop, which you would then manually execute once the price hit your mental stop-loss. Whether you use one or the other or both, the main thing is that you use stop-loss to trade and invest another day.

After scanning the stocks this week, I’m taking a bet on the Asia gamblers flying into Macau.

Buy Long Wynns Resorts. Ticker WYNN

Long Entry: 90.01 to 95.92

Stop-Loss: 81.44 to 79.93.

Take Profit Areas:

Very Short Term: 107.74 to 113.65

Short Term: 119.98 to 129.05

Intermediate Term: 134.22 to 144.37

Long Term: 163.67 to 175.94

Longer Term: 202.21 to 217.50

Wynn Resorts Story

Wynns revenues are mostly coming from its Macau resort currently as Las Vegas is slowing. Having been to Asia and its casinos many times, the Asians love to gamble, they have the money to do it, and there are a lot of them doing it. I’m betting they will keep doing it and with Wynn as one of the beneficiaries. There are plenty of pros and cons on Wynn and the gaming sector right now from the big investment houses. I’ll leave it to you to research and analyze all of that.

Wynn Resorts News from their website.

Wynn Resorts, Limited Posts Record Revenue and EBITDA for the Second Quarter of 2008

Position Sizing Basics

Excerpt from Preface of Van Tharp’s new book, The Definitive Guide to Position Sizing

Click here for Dr. Van Tharp's Current September Peak Performance 101 & 202 Trading Workshops in Cary North Carolina.

Perhaps the greatest secret to top trading and investing success is appropriate money management or what we now call position sizing. I call it a “secret” because few people seem to understand it, including people who’ve written books on the topic. Some people call it risk control; others call it diversification. Money managers call it managing other people’s money and still others call it how to “wisely” invest or spend your money. However, the money management that is the key to top trading and investing simply refers to the algorithm that tells you “how much” with respect to any particular position in the market. And because the topic of money management is so conflicting, I’ve coined the term position sizing.

I’ve written a new book to give you an overall understanding of the topic and show you various models of position sizing. Mastering the concept of position sizing is potentially the most profitable journey you will ever take as a trader. The material is quite complex, despite my attempt to make it simple. However, you’ll find it well worth your while to go through all the examples until you have mastered it.

One of the fundamental concepts you can benefit from is that position sizing is the key to meeting your objectives as a trader. Most people assume that there is just one objective to trading—their own—and thus their view is biased by their objective. As a result, they never realize that the purpose of position sizing is to meet your trading objectives.

There are many other key concepts that stem from this primary one.

There are probably an infinite number of objectives that you could have and thus, an infinite number of ways for you to use position sizing.

It is important for you to define your objectives before you develop a system and before you develop your position sizing routine.

Although your system has very little to do with meeting your objectives, we have developed a method to quantify the quality of your system, which we call the System Quality NumberSM or SQNSM for short.

We’ve discovered that the higher your System Quality NumberSM, the easier it is to use position sizing to meet your objectives.

You might even think of position sizing as a separate system, overlaid upon your primary system, which is designed to meet your objectives.

These key ideas are the foundation that you need to understand to make position sizing useful to you.

This book is one of the most important books you could ever read if you want to be a professional investor or trader. The material provides the foundation for everything you do as a trader or investor. Only your personal psychological work is more important because you are the source of your trading success. In fact, there are many psychological biases that keep people from practicing sound position sizing. In addition, there are also practical considerations, such as not understanding position sizing or not having sufficient funds to practice sound position sizing.

Let’s look at the facts. The entry price to being an investor or trader is fairly low. All you have to do is have enough money to open an account. Your brokerage company doesn’t care whether you understand expectancy. Your brokerage company doesn’t care whether you know your objectives. Your brokerage company doesn’t care whether or not you understand that position sizing is the key to meeting your objectives. And your brokerage company certainly doesn’t care that you must have your personal psychology together in order for any of this to matter. They simply don’t care.

Your brokerage company cares about three things: 1) that you have enough money to open an account, 2) that you don’t do things that might cause you to lose many times the value of your account so that you get your broker into trouble, and 3) that you generate a lot of commissions through your trading. That’s it. You can make every mistake described in this book and it’s still okay with your brokerage for you to open an account.

This is not true of most professions. You cannot become an engineer without understanding calculus. And if you make too many mistakes, you can never be an engineer. You cannot do brain surgery without going through medical school, doing an internship, and then going through residency. You cannot hold a research job without a basic understanding of statistics. You cannot practice law without attending law school and passing a rigorous bar examination. To get a doctorate in finance, economics, or business, you must pass many exams. But the material you must study is almost the antithesis of what it takes to be successful in the markets. You even have to pass exams to become a broker, but there is absolutely nothing in that exam that tests your knowledge of material related to trading success—NOTHING.

To be a trader or investor, you don’t have to know anything about what it takes to be “safe” as an investor and you certainly don’t have to know what it takes to be profitable as an investor. All you need is enough money to open an account and to sign a statement that you understand the risks involved. In fact, your brokerage company, when they make you sign that statement, probably doesn’t understand the fundamental basis behind that risk, which is the material in this book. Furthermore, most people who open a brokerage account lose money.

Here’s the bottom line: if you want to safely master the art of trading or investing, you must thoroughly understand position sizing. If it seems too complex, it doesn’t matter—it’s still core material you must master. It is necessary if you want to be successful as a trader. My new book contains a mini-test. Answering all of the questions correctly doesn’t necessarily mean that you will apply this material because that means that you have mastered yourself as well, but it at least means that you have enough understanding to have a reasonable chance of success.

I’ve divided this book into four primary sections. The first section is on understanding the golden rules of trading and how to evaluate the quality of your system. The second section is on position sizing basics, including an introduction to basic position sizing models. The third section is on how to use position sizing to meet your objectives. And the last section is on miscellaneous topics related to position sizing, including what not to do, software, and information on putting it all together. This book contains the most important technical information that you will ever be exposed to as an investor/trader and probably the least understood. However, you must master this material if you want to meet your objectives as a trader/investor.

To really master this concept first, have an open mind. Second, make sure that you understand everything you read. If you have questions about what some particular word means, go to the glossary of this book and look it up. We also have a glossary at our web site, http://www.iitm.com/glossary.htm. Third, be sure you can do all of the exercises in the book when they come up. If you have problems, keep working until you have mastered the exercises. Fourth, you must develop a plan to put all of this material together. And finally, you must master yourself so that you can apply this material without making significant mistakes.

Trading isn’t about easy money and get rich schemes. It’s a profession worthy of quality training and a good solid education in what works and what does not work for successful results.

Free Forex Forecasts August 20 - 27

Announcing Elliott Wave International's NEW FreeWeek. Free.

Full Access to EWI's Forex Forecasts! August 20-27

Google the word "forex," and your search will bring back about 61 million entries.

Google "S&P," and you'll get about 10 million fewer entries to choose from.

There is a reason why more websites talk about trading forex than trading stocks: Online currency trading is quickly becoming a mainstream activity.

Forex already is THE largest and most liquid market on the planet. Its daily volume is ten times larger than the combined daily turnover on all of the world's stock exchanges. And it's attracting more currency speculators every day.

But don't believe those who say that trading forex is easy. Less than ten percent of all currency speculators win consistently. What are they doing differently from the other ninety percent?

Answer: They have 1) a method, and 2) the discipline to stick with it.

Elliott wave analysis is a method many forex traders use. It helps you accomplish three crucial goals: Identify the trend, stay with it, and know when the trend is likely over.

And you're in luck!

Because from noon to noon on August 20 through August 27, you have full, free access to Elliott Wave International's 24-hour-a-day forex forecasts inside EWI's Currency Specialty Service!

U.S. Economy's Mascot: Grizzly Bear

08/08/08 The long-awaited Summer FINANCIAL Olympic Games has begun. Hosted by the August 2008 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast, this event showcases the world’s leading economic athletes as they compete in the race toward opportunity.

Here are just a few of the event’s most show-stopping details:

Diving into investment pools: The July 2006 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast warned against big banks diving headfirst into Collaterized Debt Obligations -- and wrote: “Banks will find themselves with a shared interest in broken down pools of defaulted mortgages and or other ‘synthetic’ CDO’s which will not be worth the paper they’re written on.”

On July 28, 2008 Merrill Lynch joined the long line of battered, bulge-bracket firms by writing down 75% of its CDOs. Now, our analysts reveal what kind of “splash” asset-price deflation will make on the overall economy.

Synchronized Stock-Market Swimming: The Dow Jones Industrial Average set an all-time high in October 2007, but the Dow Utilities and Dow Transportation Averages didn’t reach their peaks until May and June of 2008 -- Bullish divergence OR belated topping process? Our original close-ups send a clear message: ALL three Dow Indexes will soon be aligned to one side.

“[Red] Parade of Nations” The August 2007 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast cautioned against widespread faith in overseas markets becoming an “antidote to the bear.” We said: “Falling prices lie directly ahead for most foreign markets as… U.S. investors are stuffed to the gills with stocks from far away place.”

Today, the financial flags of the world hang LOW as an “economic tempest takes over Europe,” Pakistan, India, Russia, China, and the U.S. The way we see it, the next stage of the global trend will enter unchartered territory.

The Financial Olympic Mascot: Grizzly Bear? In the August 2008 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast, our analysts show how the leading economic sectors will “score” in the months ahead.

Get instant access today.

The Torch of Consumer Spending Burns Out: The $100 billion (and counting) tax rebate checks have been about as “stimulating” as a tranquilizer. Case in point: A telling chart of the U.S. Savings Rate over the past four decades reveals a strong up-tick since 2005 -- alongside a similarly telling DROP in the 13-week Rate of Change for Money Supply (M2). Is it time to stash your money in cash?

Yellow Ring: Last month, the July 2008 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast presented the following GOLD insight: “As we go to press, sentiment is still allowing for plenty of downside potential.” Now, with gold prices more than $100 BELOW their July 14 peak, our analysts compare the precious metal market to the “higher-beta junior mining issues.” Are precious metals REALLY a safe place to hide?

“Black-GOLD” Medal: The July 2008 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast was loud and clear: “Energy trading has reached an important mania era endpoint.” From its July 11 all-time high, crude oil has plunged 20% to a three-month low, alongside the biggest drop in the CRB Commodity Index in 28 years. According to the August publication, “sentiment” has reached a perfect set-up for one kind of move.

Believe it or not, that’s just the Opening Ceremony. Get the entire Financial Forecast Service today and stay in front of the long-term trend changes in store for hedge funds, housing, financials, bonds, the U.S. dollar, silver, fashion, movies, and still more.

Options The Perfect Hedge Free Video

I'd like to personally invite you to watch a brand-new video that just came my way from guys at The Options University.

I reviewed the video myself, and I must say, it's something I feel you SHOULD WATCH IMMEDIATELY.

Here's why:

On this short, information-packed video, you'll discover some 'little-known' but POWERFUL facts about options trading that you may never have considered before.

In fact, some of the things discussed on this video totally blows away certain lies, myths, misunderstandings and misconceptions about options trading.

See if you agree by clicking here.

On this video, you'll soon discover:

Why options were designed to be the "Perfect Hedge" against anything and everything else going on in the stock market. With the proper use of options, you can PERFECTLY HEDGE your portfolio against market volatility. Both on the upside and the downside.

The many "virtues" of options trading (yes, that's right, options trading is not "evil" or "dangerous" as the clueless mainstream financial media portray, far from it, when used the 'right' way.

How you could have used the advantages of options in this currently vicious and volatile market to completely protect your portfolio. You could have even scored some tidy "windfall returns" from playing the precipitous drop in the financial stocks recently, here's how.

The unusual "jack hammer" analogy of using options in trading (Both very are powerful tools, but can be dangerous when used improperly or by someone who doesn't know how to use them.

The 3 major advantages of options over any other type of trading vehicle once you FULLY GRASP and understand these advantages, you may never want to trade stocks again, at least not in the ways you've done so up until this point in time.

How to get your hands on the EXACT OPTIONS TRADING INFORMATION taught to some of the highest-paid options floor traders on Wall Street, and why this information is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT to you than it was to them.

How a 15-year options floor trading veteran taught his toughest student to date - his DAD - to trade options, and how this 70-year old, thick-headed Italian is making more money in the markets than he ever has in his life.

And finally... how to get your hands on some of the most valuable (yet F.R.E.E.), accurate, no B.S. options trading information you've ever seen.

Well, I hope you now see why I'm so excited about this video, and why I wanted to get this information out to you as soon as I heard about it.

ETF Underground Blueprint

Make sure you read all this because it contains a 'blueprint' that can have a DIRECT IMPACT on your portfolio.

This is what I know so far . . .

The trading community is on the verge of an unprecedented 'explosion' of profit potential trading a group of funds that have largely remained ignored by 'mainstream'
individuals, but for over a decade, select 'underground' traders have been quietly siphoning this potential directly from these 'under the radar' markets, essentially padding their portfolios, year after year.

So if you have ANY interest in discovering how to get in on what's being called a 'portfolio supercharger' while it's still somewhat 'quiet', you're in for a TREAT.

Follow The "BluePrint"

The trader behind this consumer guide wrote it initially as a gift to his readers to thank them for helping him with a survey about the markets in question. About 100,000 traders were asked to participate.

But what was intended as a 10 or 15 page 'thank you' note turned into a 57-page 'blueprint' that effectively shows you how to join this 'underground community'.

While these markets have been around for over a decade, they're just now beginning to gain momentum, but they're far from 'popular'.

And not only are the top 20 questions about these markets answered in clear detail... but you'll discover how you can use this information to breathe some much needed life into your portfolio, regardless of what you already trade.

Less Than 20 Minutes

Find out how the author spends LESS THAN 20 minutes a day with TOTAL confidence in these markets, which leaves him the rest of the day to pursue other activities.

You'll also learn:

How you can get an unfair head start using these specialized trading strategies before the 'mainstream' catches on. Don't worry, it's entirely legal (page 54).

How to doubl.e your profit potential with half the effort by harnessing a special kind of fund designed to pad your portfolio when the market tanks (page 11).

How to finally let your IRA funnel profit potential out of bear runs. This little-known technique essentially lets your IRA flex its muscles for the first time ever as you trade it almost like a regular brokerage account (page 25).

How to drastically reduce your 'time in the trenches' trading these potent markets by spending less than 20 minutes a day. These 3 discoveries make it all possible
(page 38).

How to use his 2-step 'fast filter' technique for quickly and efficiently finding the lowest risk & highest probability funds available. You effectively become your
very own "selection service" (page 23).

Plus, there's a TON more you'll get to sink your teeth into about these 'ignored markets' when you get the report.

Sorry - It's Not For Sale

Even though he could probably sell thousands of copies of this report on the web, the author made a decision to give it away (for now, at least).

Why?

Frankly, he understands that there are a lot of hucksters out there who peddle worthless information, so he decided to make himself stand out from the crowd by giving away as much high- quality, actionable trading EDUCATION and CONTENT as
possible.

That way, if you want to work with him more closely in the future, you already know what he's made of (and without coughing up a single penny to find out).

I find that kind of attitude refreshing. Don't you?

How To Get Your Copy

To get your copy, just click this link page right now:

By the way, you also have the author's permission to give away copies of this report to anyone you think needs some 'first aid' for their portfolio.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Good Trading,

Invest2Success

P.S. This is a HUGE report. Take your time and read it all, but hurry and download it. Why? Because it's so large, it could be taken offline at any moment if the author's web server 'bandwidth' gets eaten up with all the requests for the report.

Last Chance Forex Accelerator

Due to shopping cart errors, you may have a chance to get in on this sold out Forex solution.

Click here to get it before its gone 2 days from now.

Last week, 30+ year trader Bill Poulos filled up his new group of 555 students who jumped at the chance to grab his Forex Profit Accelerator home study course.

This course was then pulled off the market last Wednesday.

But all throughout the release, Bill's team received dozens of complaints from international traders who were receiving shopping cart errors while trying to check out.

The errors had to do with postal code error checking, and prevented some individuals from getting the course.

These errors were fixed last Thursday as part of a software update to the shopping cart Bill uses, so just to be fair to everybody who wanted a copy but couldn't get one, here's what he decided to do.

Get On Board By Thursday

Bill decided to open up his enrollment page again, but only for the next 72 hours because he doesn't want the next 45 traders to fall behind his 555 other students.

It expires on Thursday, August 7th, at 11:59pm Eastern time.

Bill already has hundreds of traders who signed up on his 'Soldout' page for his notification list, so these 45 copies WILL be gone - the question is WHEN...

If you missed out last week, and want a final chance to "get in", go ahead and claim your copy of Bill's step-by-step Forex home study course that reveals how you can finally achieve Forex F-R-E-E-D-O-M as an independent trader in less than 20 minutes a night.

Get it here:


P.S. These final 45 copies will be "doled out" on a first come first served basis, so please be sure to make your decision quickly and then do your best to grab one of the
remaining copies:

Click here to get it before its gone 2 days from now.

Remember, that page will expire on Thursday, August 7th, at 11:59pm Eastern (New York) time.

Weekly Stock Pick

Scanning the charts this early Monday morning I’ve zeroed in on a long candidate stock. You might think I’m crazy in a stock market like this right now to go long right now, but there are growth stories around the world to buy into. It’s a company headquartered in Argentina, and they’re involved in one of my favorite sectors right now, agriculture, and food production.

Long Position Cresud SA. Ticker CRESY

Friday Aug 1 Closing Price: 13.30

Buy at current prices or down to 12.83 – 12.42

Stop-loss 8% or less in a market like this.

Note: If 12.42 gives way, prices could possibly drop to about 10.12 to 9.80 so stick to your stop-loss price whatever amount it is.

Take Profit Areas

Short Term: 14.85

Intermediate Term: 16.98

Long Term: 20.80

Longer Term: 23.38

CRESY Basic Fundamentals

Cresud earnings estimates are 0.60 for 2008, and 0.81 for 2009. It’s got a dividend yield of .62, and what I like the most in a time of ill-liquidity, its total debt to equity is only 10.82%.

CRESY Competitors

Cresud major competitors are agriculture giant Archer Daniels Midland, and other agri players of Cargill, and DeWied International. With global food demand forecasted to be strong for at least the next five years, and current food crises worldwide, the current agriculture companies should do pretty well intermediate to long term.
