Let Me Introduce You to viditrade.

Real-time signals, unique trading setups, and education.
ll reinforced by live guidance, and on-demand documentation of my decades of proprietary market discoveries.

How the viditrade system started

Thousands of hours scanning hundreds of thousands of stock charts unlocked my eidetic memory for images, and forged it with a natural inclination to process data efficiently by organizing them into patterns. The result is an analysis that identifies the shifting perceptions and allocations among those who forecast economic and company financials. This edge adds basis points to tweaking the timing of entries and exits, and adds multiple points when forecasting imminent price inflection or acceleration.

Previously I was a Contributing Editor for optionMONSTER where I produced the Index Trader blog, providing intraday timing signals and targets in S&Ps and other futures markets. Prior to that, I founded in 1995, one of the original technical analysis web sites. Through AvidTrader, I launched the web’s first free-access trader’s chatroom in 1996 for technical analysis newcomers and experts from around the world to mingle throughout the trading day.

Through the chat forum, I produced and hosted an ongoing series of live interviews with many well-known chartists and technicians. My guests included John Bollinger who created Bollinger Bands, Gerald Appel, creator of MACD, Marc Chaikin who created the original Money Flow indicator, George Lane, creator of the Stochastic indicator, Chris Carolan who discovered the Spiral Calendar, and Tom DeMark who is best known for his TD Sequential indicator. Other notable interviewees were John Murphy, Bill Williams, Peter Eliades, Linda Raschke, Van Tharp, Glenn Neely and Arch Crawford.

My analysis has been published or quoted in MarketWatch, CNBC, Minyanville, The New York Times, Trader Daily, Futures Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, among others. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Park University and reside in the Kansas City area.

My broad industry experiences range from retail brokerage to trading advisory publisher; from market analyst to algorithm developer; from trader to educator and industry innovator. And perhaps most important, from novice investor to market professional. Backgrounds in each enable me to tailor my message for any audience.

What I do

I label signals on charts, before price gets there. I assess market conditions to forecast intraday direction and targets for active markets and individual stocks. I maintain “bigger picture” perspectives that anticipate trend changes and duration. This analysis includes identifying risk control techniques, and price behaviors that will help to confirm whether a trade/trend is developing, or in jeopardy. I produce this research and idea flow simultaneously on multiple products, across multiple time horizons, throughout each trading day.

How I do it

My proprietary and bespoke analysis is based on a proprietary set of unique, robust, predictive analytical techniques and rule sets, which segment price action into usual and unusual behaviors – i.e. noise and signal. Their output efficiently and quickly forecasts any chart – be it equity, index or futures, over any time frame from intraday to weekly.

What's Next

I have documented my proprietary discoveries of unique market action, and organized them in a Knowledge Base. They are shared there along with strategies and tactics for trading their signals and maximizing their profitability.
