Laurence A Connors - Street Smarts - High Probability Short-Term Trading Strategies


You must be registered for see images



Published in 1996 and written by Larry Connors and "New Market Wizard" Linda Raschke. This 245 page manual is considered by many to be one of the best books written on trading futures. Twenty-five years of combined trading experience is divulged as you will learn 20 of their best strategies.

Among the methods you will be taught are:

* Swing Trading - The backbone of Linda's success. Not only will you learn exactly how to swing trade, you will also learn specific advanced techniques never before made public!
* News - Among the strategies revealed is an intra-day news strategy they use to exploit the herd when the 8:30am economic reports are released. This strategy will be especially appreciated by bond traders and currency traders.
* Pattern Recognition - You will learn some of the best short-term set-up patterns available. Larry and Linda will also teach you how they combine these patterns with other strategies to identify explosive moves.
* ADX - In our opinion, ADX is one of the most powerful and misunderstood indicators available to traders. Now, for the first time, they reveal a handful of short-term trading strategies they use in conjunction with this terrific indicator.
* Volatility - You will learn how to identify markets that are about to explode and how to trade these exciting situations.
* Also, included are chapters on trading volatility, trading Crabel, trading the smart money index, trading gap reversals, a special chapter on professional money management, and many other trading strategies!

A good book and a follow-up in our minds to Street Smarts. Somewhat of a review of the previous book co-authored with Raschke. If you like "Street Smarts", are willing to do work, take trades, and develop your own trading style this book is very useful. No book by itself is going to make you a profitable trader. But, if you incorporate high probability trades into a method for trading small and frequently you can make money. This book will help you develop a trading methodology. All we can say is that one of the keys to trading is to take enough small trades to allow a high probability method to get you onto the trading probability tables. If you are going to try and hit home runs once in a while you will be either more skilled than all but one "market wizard" or very lucky.


Laurence A Connors - High Probability ETF Trading


You must be registered for see images



Are you worried about the risks associated with the stock market? Are you tired of seeing your returns diminish month after month, quarter after quarter?

Are you looking to potentially increase your trading profits AND reduce your risk level? How do you do this? With ETFs.

The First Quantified Book on Trading ETFs

TradingMarkets is excited to announce the launch of High Probability ETF Trading. Written by Larry Connors and Cesar Alvarez, this book is designed to give you the trading edge you need for success. The strategies have been tested back as far as 1993, all of which have performed with a high accuracy, some up to 90%. While there are many ways to trade ETFs, applying these strategies can increase your trading success.

3 Reasons Why You Should Be Trading ETFs

1. ETFs Are Safer Than Stocks - There is less single stock corporate risk as ETFs are a basket of underlying securities. With multiple securities, you aren t subject to the wide array of risk including corporate scandals, after market earning reports, and other factors that affect individual stocks.

2. Trade ETFs On Both The Long And Short Side - This enables the opportunity to profit in both rising and declining markets.

3. Trade ETFs With or Without Leverage - Many traders like the idea of getting added leverage in their trading and the newly released leveraged ETFs have seen tremendous volume growth as active traders have gravitated to them.

What You Will Learn From Reading High Probability ETF Trading.

In this book, you will learn 7 ETF strategies that have been tested on a universe of 20 of the more liquid ETFs including the SPYs and QQQQs. Each strategy was tested since the inception of the trading of each ETF.

How Well Have the Strategies Performed?

The strategies you will learn resulted in over 80% winning trades since October 2008 in the Larry Connors' Daily Battle Plan.
In fact, from October 2008, these strategies have resulted in following results in the model portfolio:

102 ETF Set-Ups
82 Winning Trades
80% Correct

How Do the Strategies Work?

You will identify the signals at the close of the day. Then, you simply place your orders and exit when the signal occurs, usually 3 to 7 trading days later. That's it!

Are the Strategies Difficult to Learn?

No! In fact all have only a few rules and all the strategies can be learned in an evening. You'll be able to apply the strategies to the next trading day.

Do You Have Strategies for Shorting ETFs?

Yes. Every strategy is designed to be traded both on the long side (especially for bull markets) and the short side (especially for bear markets).

Larry Connors has co-authored two of the best selling trading books of the decade: "Investment Secrets of a Hedge Fund Manager" (with Blake Hayward) which brought traders strategies that are now in the mainstream of Wall Street thinking and "Street Smarts" (with Linda Raschke), a must-read treatise that revealed the in-depth secrets of two well-known, successful traders.

"Connors on Advanced Trading Strategies" is Larry's latest and most valuable contribution to the trading community.

Here's what one of his readers writes:

"Thanks to Larry Connors, "I am now a General Partner for an Investment Advisory firm.

"Things look good for the future!"

(Greg Che, Cambridge, MA)

If you trade Futures, Stocks or Options, you can now have in your hands 258 pages of the very best material Larry Connors has ever researched, tested and revealed.

In its 258 pages and 31 chapters you will learn some of the most explosive short-term market strategies ever made available to traders.

Among the 30-plus strategies revealed in the manual are:

THE 15-MINUTE ADX BREAKOUT METHOD (Chapter 20) Especially for day-traders ! This dynamic method teaches you how to specifically identify and trade the most explosive futures and stocks every day. This strategy alone is worth the price of the book. It specifically shows how to choose to enter the same market day after day. By identifying an over-all trend and then waiting for a market to "speak to you" just after the opening, you can take positions where before you might have hesitated or even refrained from entering. This is a day trader's dream. . . imagine buying low soon after the opening and selling higher late in the session. Day after day - in the same market !

OPTIONS (Section 6) Four chapters and numerous in-depth strategies for trading options. You will learn the strategies used by the Market Makers and a small handful of professionals to consistently capture options gains. Trading volatility with options Trading options with the Connors Vix Reversal Options on stock splits Exploiting overpriced stock sector options

CRASH BURN AND PROFIT (Chapter 11) Huge short-side profits occur when stocks implode. By following the simple rules of this setup you could have shorted Diana Corp at 67 3/8 - a few months later it had collapsed to 1 1/2. This, from one of the most straight-forward entry techniques you'll ever see !

The CONNORS "VIX REVERSALS" 1, 2 and 3: (Chapter 2) You will learn how the CBOE Volatility Index pinpoints short-term highs and lows in the S&P's and in the broad market. The average profit per trade is among the highest Larry has ever released in three of the most powerful strategies ever revealed.

ADVANCED VOLATILITY STRATEGIES (Section 2) Numerous never-before-revealed strategies and concepts using volatility measures to identify markets immediately before they explode.

TWO-FOR-ONE MONEY MANAGEMENT (Chapter 28) Specific money management methodology to use which helps maximize profits while keeping your risks to a minimum. It is an exit strategy which allows you to participate in potentially large moves with reduced exposure. You will find you have more confidence in taking trades as it allows you to enter into potentially explosive setups while reducing the risk inherent in these setups. This strategy helps offset your concerns about allowing profits to run.

MODIFYING TRADE SIZE AND STOP PLACEMENT Based on Volatility Measurement (Chapter 5) One of the most successful Commodity Trading Advisors in the world "blew up" his company because he ignored this one rule. His story is used as a lesson to point out the dangers of not paying attention to a market's changing volatility. You will know how to exploit market volatility when it explodes.

Published for the very first time ever. Over 850 practical, easy-to-use historical probabilities on the most commonly traded market scenarios!

For years, traders and investors have been using unproven assumptions about popular patterns such as breakouts, momentum, new highs, new lows, market breadth, put/call ratios and more without knowing if there is a statistical edge.

Have you ever wondered the following...

Do these patterns actually make you money? Read on and you'll be surprised by what 15 years of new, previously unpublished research reveals.

Is there a radically different, better way to trade these patterns and indicators that somehow has escaped the awareness of traders and investors? You'll find the answers below...

The answers to both of these questions and much more is contained in Larry Connors' new book, How Markets Really Work. Through new research, much of which has never before been published, you will be able to clearly see which of nearly 850 meticulously researched patterns and indicators have an edge -- and which do not. Best of all, you will be able to apply this information whenever you trade.

Here's how you can use How Markets Really Work in your trading every day. Learn how to focus on trades that have the best edge and stop trading setups that have zero edge. Every time you trade, just look up the current market action in the book so that you can potentially maximize your winning trades while weeding out the losing ones.

Gain an edge that many traders and professional traders do not have. Most traders will continue to operate according to incorrect conventional wisdom because much of it "seems to make sense." But by using How Markets Really Work as your daily reference guide, you will be able to take advantage of market behaviors that consistently repeated themselves over and over again in the past.

Use it to better time your entries and exits into stocks and ETFs. Many times the trading system or methodology you are using will tell you to enter or exit a trade into price action that matches one of the patterns listed in How Markets Really Work. When this occurs, it's a great opportunity for you to fine tune your actions so that statistical probabilities are working in your favor and not against you.

The knowledge contained in How Markets Really Work can be used in developing your very own systems and strategies. Whether you are a system developer or you just want to improve your existing trading strategy, you can use the core knowledge in this book to stimulate your own research and create new systems.

Impact your trading with never-before-seen research on put/call ratios, price movement, breadth indicators, large one-day moves, volume and much, much more. Whether you use these indicators or not, you will finally be able to make informed decisions about their true value to your trading. Each Chapter Of How Markets Really Work Is Backed By Up To 15 Years Of Historical Results!

Laurence Connors, Cesar Alvarez, Matt Radtke - An Introduction to ConnorsRSI, 2012

ConnorsRSI
The 1st Quantified Oscillator for Traders

Connors Research has been developing, testing, and publishing quantified trading strategies since the mid-1990s. During that time, we have had the opportunity to evaluate a great number of different technical indicators and to assess their effectiveness in predicting future price action.

The 2-period RSI is used by thousands of traders around the world. In fact, it’s considered by many to be the single best indicator for Swing Traders. Over the past decade professional equity, ETF, and options traders have learned to rely upon the 2-period RSI as their main indicator before they make a trade.

Now we’ve taken the next step and created an indicator of our own. We call it: ConnorsRSI.

ConnorsRSI is a composite indicator consisting of three components. Two of the three components utilize the Relative Strength Index (RSI) calculations developed by Welles Wilder in the 1970’s, and the third component ranks the most recent price change on a scale of 0 to 100.

Taken together, these three factors form a momentum oscillator, i.e. an indicator that fluctuates between 0 and 100 to indicate the level to which a security is overbought (high values) or oversold (low values).

FREE ConnorsRSI Strategy Guidebook

ConnorsRSI is being offered at no cost -- with full disclosure of the formula & test results. We have published an introductory guidebook that includes:

*Background Formulas for Conventional RSI
*The entire formula for ConnorsRSI
*A Fully-Disclosed Pullback Strategy that Uses ConnorsRSI
*Simulated Historical Test Results

This guidebook describes the ConnorsRSI indicator itself and also provides a well-defined, quantified pullback trading strategy that utilizes this new indicator.

The chart at right shows simulated historical research results from this strategy. You will see, from the right-hand column, how ConnorsRSI can be superior to conventional RSI applications.

S&P 500 Trading Strategy w/ConnorsRSI

Here's How You Can Swing-Trade for Short-term Gains AND Stay In Your Comfort Zone -- with S&P 500 Stocks
Professional money managers have long bought quality stocks on pullbacks ...
Now you can follow the same strategy -- using quantified research & ConnorsRSI

Trade in Your Comfort-Zone

Active traders are often advised to stay in their "comfort zone".
Especially if they want to sleep at night.

In the U.S. Markets, that 'comfort zone' is most often found in S&P 500 Stocks. Here's why:
- The majority of U.S. money is traded by institutions & the majority of this money is pension and retirement money.
- The money managers of these funds often work under mandate to trade only "quality stocks"
- The companies in the S&P 500, with long histories of success, are generally considered to be the highest quality stocks available.

Now -- Here's What's New:

In the past, institutions used a 'Buy-and-Hold' strategy for their S&P 500 allocations.
More recently, professionals have looked for short-term weakness on individual S&P 500 stocks -- in order to buy short-term lows and sell when the price on that stock rises back to it's true value.
Now you can use this same approach -- with a new level of quantified accuracy -- using ConnorsRSI as your guide to finding short-term oversold S&P stocks.

Introducing: S&P 500 Trading with ConnorsRSI
This latest GuideBook, from our popular Connors Research Trading Strategy Series, will teach you the how to swing-trade S&P 500 stocks to capture short-term gains from mis-priced opportunities identified by ConnorsRSI.

The only quantified momentum oscillator, ConnorsRSI combines price, momentum, duration of the trend, and relative magnitude of the price change -- all in a single indicator.
ConnorsRSI gives you a quantified way to identify stocks most likely to reverse. And as you will see from the test results, especially on a percentage correct basis, trading S&P 500 stocks with ConnorsRSI can be an effective way to achieve growth within the comfort zone of the S&P 500.

Test Results: S&P 500 Trading with ConnorsRSI
Jan. 2001 - Mar. 2013 (long only, ranked by % Winning Trades)
Variation Avg. Avg. Trading % Winning Trades
% Profit/Loss Days Held
1 14.8% 2.3 86.0%
2 16.9% 3.2 84.9%
3 13.3% 2.3 84.0%
4 15.0% 3.3 83.0%
5 11.2% 2.4 82.9%
6 12.7% 3.4 82.9%
7 12.9% 2.4 82.8%
8 12.8% 2.4 82.6%
9 14.6% 3.5 81.5%
10 14.5% 3.4 81.4%


With this GuideBook, you will receive over 40 variations with specific Entry/Exit Rules for defined by ConnorsRSI, including Limit Orders:
- More than a dozen variations show winning trade rates
over 80%
- 18 variations show an Avg. % P/L (including all winning and losing trades) of over 10.0%
- All are long positions; most are held for less than 5 days

We feel that it is specifically the use of ConnorsRSI that drives simulated test results with so many variations showing high levels of both Winning Trade Rates and Average P/L per Trade -- in the table above and in the GuideBook.
[The formula to calculate ConnorsRSI is included in this Strategy Guide. You can also get the ConnorsRSI value for any stock FREE at the TradingMarkets web site.]

Here's What You Will Receive...
In S&P 500 Trading with ConnorsRSI you will receive:
- The exact trading rules. This is not a black box – full disclosure of the rules is given to you.
- How to identify the best S&P 500 Stocks set-ups.
- How to select the best entries that fit your trading style.
- Where to exactly place your orders each day -- including research on the use of limit orders.

S&P 500 Trading with ConnorsRSI test results include all S&P 500 stocks since 2001, including stocks like Enron and Lehman.

For Options Traders, Too
As a bonus we also added a section on how to trade options with this strategy.

This ebook only describes the target profit for your orders, but I cannot find where you should set your stop loss.

As far as I remember, he says that there is no stoploss because it causes large drawdowns.Stops are time stops ( I am not sure),U hold it for 5 days -7 days.Just check it.

These Guide Books are great tools to use as an element of your overall system. For example, use Ellliot Wave projections, seasonality or any market climate approach to identify when you should be in equities in general and then select a sector or sectors of stocks (e.g., high relative strength sectors) to trade short term.

BTW: The authors do not endorse the use of a stop given the small single digit returns on each trade but there is no reason you cannot place one just in case the markets goes crazy.

For years, traders and investors have been using unproven assumptions about popular patterns such as breakouts, momentum, new highs, new lows, market breadth, put/call ratios and more without knowing if there is a statistical edge. Common wisdom holds that the stock markets are ever changing. But, as it turns out, common wisdom can be wrong. Offering a comprehensive look back at the way the markets have acted over the last two decades, How Markets Really Work: A Quantitative Guide to Stock Market Behavior, Second Edition shows that nothing has changed, that the markets behave the same way today as they have in years past, and that understanding this puts you in a prime position to profit. Written by two top financial experts and filled with charts and graphs that illustrate the market concepts they develop, the book takes a sometimes contrarian view of everything from market edges to historical volatility, and from volume to put/call ratio, giving you all that you need to truly understand how the markets function. Fully revised and updated, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition takes a level–headed, data–driven look at the markets to show how they function and how you can apply that information intelligently when making investment decisions.

Larry Connors (The Connors Group Inc) - VIX Options Trading Course 2007



* How VIX Options allow traders to potentially profit from the direction of the VIX and to profit from market volatility.

* How VIX Options can also give traders the opportunity to hedge their portfolios to protect themselves from market declines.

* 3 new strategies that they will be able to apply immediately. Two of these strategies will teach them how to predict the short-term direction of the VIX and how to use VIX options to take advantage of these moves. The third strategy will teach them how to use VIX options to hedge and protect their portfolios, especially from steep market declines.

Larry will also provide traders with this overview of what they will learn in the TradingMarkets VIX Options Trading Course:

* How to trade when the VIX explodes higher.

* How to trade when the VIX makes new highs.

* How to take advantage of low volatility environments.

* Why the VIX is not always a contrary indicator to market direction - learn how and when to know the difference.

* Why not all VIX strike prices are created equal, especially when the markets experience extreme moves. Traders will learn which VIX strike prices to focus on, which months to focus on, when to buy calls, when to buy puts and when to sell calls and puts.

* How to use the daily TradingMarkets VIX Gauge to know what edges exist day by day, how big these edges are and which strategies to use to take advantage of these edges.

* How to hedge their portfolios with VIX options, especially from steep market declines.

* When and why the VIX changes direction and how they can take advantage of these changes.

* More than 25 separate VIX strategies to apply to their trading. Since 1995 these signals have correctly predicted the VIX's direction over 87% of the time within 6 .(1) They'll be able to find the best calls and puts, at the times which have historically had the biggest edges and the best potential for large gains.

Traders and investors are invited to join Larry Connors via teleconference at a free 45 minute presentation. Attendees will not only learn about the TradingMarkets Options Trading Course, they will be taught new trading ideas and strategies that have not previously been . A schedule of Larry's presentations is available at:

glamstar,

What sort of error message you get?
It is kind of rare that all mirrorupload re-direct links all dead.... It happened, but not for this instance.
I just randomly tried the first 2 items in this threads, and there are live downloads links.

unfortunately none of these can be downloaded.

I checked them all and they all worked for me. You have to click on all the correct buttons. It takes time to learn how to do it correctly. You just have to keep trying different things until it works. DO NOT RUN any application .exe files. those are all wrong buttons.

how am I suppose to get this to work. I have been smashed by more than 12 virus. I can not get close to figuring out what to click on. why not use Free. Cloud I/O DepositFile etc. I tried all 4 of your suggestions. nothing comes close. Something I do not understand probably right from the beginning. because I try them all and they are all application to screw up my computer. along with many virus that had to be deleted. what a pain in the rear just to get a file. we need some kind of management to set a proceedure. we need to have the procedure carefully spelled out in detail.

can you PM to me a url link that will allow me to download. Please. Thank You. you could do a SENDFILE

I'm really sorry to read that. I probably shouldn't have used mirror creator, I don't know. My anti-virus program usually stops 5-6 pop-ups no matter which download link is used, but you are right, this time it's too much. Now I see that mirror upload is more used, I'll try again with it.
