Midas Touch

Thank-you again to the many hundreds of investors who were able to join us from around the VectorVest World for the Saturday, August 11 International Online User Group Forum. Your participation made it another tremendously enjoyable and valuable experience. For those of you who would like to review, and those who were not able to attend, I am pleased to provide the recording link. 


A Simple, Visual Chart Pattern.

Investors said they loved the simplicity and innovative use of the double-smoothed Midas Touch chart pattern for swing trades and longer term investing. The simple, visual representation of both trend and momentum with easy to follow rules make this a chart pattern that almost always works. Here are just a few of the comments we received:

Grand Prizes.

Never mind the bragging rights and the learning opportunities, imagine what you could do with an extra $5,000 USD if you win the Grand Prize for the best performing Portfolio among every subscriber around the VectorVest world? Heck, if you win that, you’re guaranteed to win the $1,500 USD First Place Award for the best performing portfolio in the Intramural competition. That’s a cool $6,500 that could be yours!

The other Grand Prize awards are outstanding as well: $4,000 USD second place, $3,000 USD third place, $2,000 USD fourth place and $1,000 USD fifth place. Everyone who enters has a chance to win the Grand Prize Awards. The Intramural Awards are additional prizes for each VectorVest country: $1,500 USD first place, $750 USD second place, and $375 USD third place. If you enter a Canadian portfolio, you could win a Grand Prize and also an Intramural Prize for Canada. If you enter a US portfolio, you can win a Grand Prize and also an Intramural Prize for the US.

Even if you don’t win one of the major prizes, you still can win a $100 VectorVest Savings Certificate if your portfolio outperforms Dr. DiLiddo’s Money Makers portfolio in the competition.

Your testing of searches and trading plans is simple, fast and accurate using the AutoTimer, the brains behind the BackTester and Portfolio Genius. You can get a free loaner for the contest just by calling Product Support at 1-888-658-7638.

As I’ve said before, I love the International aspect of this competition. It makes it so much fun and tremendously exciting to see what kinds of trading plans we’ll see from major markets around the world. As the competition gets underway, we’ll all have access to the leader board to view other trading plans and keep track of results.
