Tools that Empower Retail to Trade like a Hedge Fund

Almost all Retail Strategies focus on trading direction, but what if you could take the market movement out of the equation. What if you didn’t care where the Dow or Gold or Oil or even the Euro were headed because you focused instead on relative strength or relative weakness. That’s exactly what many professional traders do. Instead of trading outright direction, they construct “pairs” trades that allow them to profit regardless of whether the market rises or falls. Up to now, such strategies have been very difficult to execute for the Retail trader. But Boris will show you a new batch of tools along with some very interesting breakout and mean reversion strategies that will introduce you to a totally different world of trading.
