Enter the world of vibration trading with a new methodology for making more money, more safely

What if you could enter the markets and know, in advance, the exact value of trades needed to sustain a losing streak, by knowing their Martingale limits, to finally ensure a win? With Vibratrading you can. Applying the principles of "Boundedness" in conjunction with powerful stock/ETF diversification techniques, Vibratrading™ allows you to accomplish what most traders and investors previously thought impossible, giving you an unfair advantage in any market situation.

A new and revolutionary perspective on trading and investing, Vibratrading provides a powerful methodology for extracting profit. Non-directional, it is designed to appeal greatly to the vast number of directional traders consistently struggling to keep from losing their trading accounts. Providing a better, safer way to participate in the markets to make consistent profits, it is the only book you need to gain a crucial competitive edge.

  • Presents a radical new trading strategy, Vibratrading™, that the market cannot move adversely against
  • Demonstrates how a scale trader can enter the market at any level, without being restricted to entry at the "conventional lower end" of the instrument's historical range
  • Teaches traders and investors the important techniques of securitizing and monetizing profits with emphasis on risk free vibrational share accumulation

Presenting a truly non-directional methodology, Vibratrading is the book you need to make more money, more safely.
