do you pick your trades?
We screen almost 800 ETFs every day. We are looking for the strongest performing ETFs. However, strength is not the only factor we consider.
Before we decide to trade an ETF representing a market, we need a Buy Trigger. We use a proprietary Buy Trigger that provides the best entry signals.
As a member you will be presented with the most timely trades with exact instructions on when to set up each trade.
How is the timing of trades determined?
The TMS Trading Formula uses a perfected trade-timing model that gives as close to perfect buy and sell signals as is possible.
The model has been back-tested on stock market data going back one hundred years. And it has been used for real trades since 2003!
Our track record proves that our trade-timing model consistently produces profitable, winning trades!
How often do you trade?
The TMS Trader is not a frequent trading system. We average making from two to seven trades a week. As a member you will be notified by email of each trade. In addition, trades are shown on the TMS Traders Member Site.

you group trades by risk? If so, how do you do this?
divide our trades into three different portfolios rated for risk.
The Conservative Portfolio is the least risky while the
Aggressive Portfolio takes the higher risk trades.
As a member, you can pick your own trades. You do not have to limit your trades to one portfolio. The portfolio groupings are to help you select your trades.
is the difference between your portfolios?
Conservative Portfolio is for investors who are investing
for a shorter time period. This
portfolio is the least volatile and is the choice of many retirees.
However, just because it is conservative doesnít mean it is
limited to low returns. Our
Conservative Portfolio has thrown off returns of twenty percent or more
Moderate Portfolio is more aggressive than the
Conservative Portfolio. It
produces higher gains with very little additional risk.
In 2010, a tough year by many standards, our Moderate Portfolio

Can I mix the recommendations from different portfolios?
You can easily set up your own custom portfolio using our recommendations. The only caution here is not to trade two different ETFs which cover the same market. For example, we might invest in silver using a more conservative ETF in our Conservative Portfolio and use an Ultra-ETF for our Aggressive Portfolio. If you decide to create your own portfolio, just be sure not to set up two trades in silver.
will I know that I need to make a trade?
will notify you by email whenever we have a buy or sell recommendation.
We will identify each recommendation by its portfolio as well as
by giving you specific instructions.
For example, on September 13, 2010, you would have been notified as follows:
Moderate Portfolio: Buy FAA (Guggenheim Airline) on 9/14/10. Size equal to ten percent of your total portfolio. Enter Market Buy Order for the next day.
