Hi Traders,

The markets have just been inexplicably rallying for months now, during the WORST depression in decades... (some pros are even calling it an infamous "sucker's rally"). And now the markets may be ready to pullback, or start selling off hard. Are you ready to trade new setups, if and when the markets start selling back down again?

This popular article I just posted on November 12th, 2010 (with charts) entitled "Why I'm Scaling OUT..." has just garnered over 461 pageviews in it's first 24 hours online, and for good reason. Because smart traders around the world #1) value what I have to say (thanks!) and #2) know when to start selling their positions, and initiating counter-trend new "short entry" trades, for when this market starts selling off. 

Being prepared for a selloff is absolutely essential. Getting your ticket to "Shorting Secrets" with me is your first step. Also, thanks again to all who posted their comments at my new site — it's great to see such enthusiasm and kind words from everyone around the world...

And now, I'm pleased to present one of the second dual-webinar series to come out of that, which is my new "Shorting Secrets " 2-webinar series coming this November 23rd and December 1st, 2010 from 8-9pm EST.

Instead of helplessly sitting on the sidelines the NEXT time the markets crash, discover how you, too can now enter short swing and intraday trades to potentially profit from downtrends and breakdowns in the markets.  I'm sure this is one webinar series you'll find extremely useful. I absolutely guarantee it (I take all the risk, you don't).  I believe in the quality of my training, as have thousands of traders worldwide since 1999... and this two-webinar series one will be one of my best yet.

You'll be on the "edge of your seat" as you watch me deconstruct specific stock, forex and ES charts step by step, to help you spot the breakdown patterns that can be best for entering short trades.

In this brand-new 2-webinar series, you'll be shown dozens of chart examples for stocks, forex and eminis/ES, with specific tactics for short swing and day trading using easy-to-spot "breakdown short" trigger signals that have, until now, not been shown anywhere else.

You'll learn how to identify potential entries and exits regardless of what charting software you use, because "Shorting Secrets" is all pattern-based... that's right, what you're about to learn requires no software, no subscriptions, nothing but your eyes, brain and whatever chart software you're already using — and it's yours, once I show you how it all works...

How Much Better Could Your Trading Be, If You Only Knew These Shorting Skills?
(you'll learn all this, and more, once you register now for Shorting Secrets!)...
  What short trading is and how it works, using specific step by step short trading setups and patterns that you'll learn how to recognize instantly, the next time you see them in your charts. You'll see when to "pull the trigger" on breakdown short trades in for both day and swing trading.

You'll see for yourself how a real trader sets entries and exits using new pattern-based short signals that you can use with any charting software or package (no special software/subscriptions needed, this is solid pattern recognition-based trading that you can start using immediately).
         Core trading strategy for using "short trade" positions, using candle chart patterns, trading range breakouts and short signals, and much more.  We develop a process together that you can use to initiate new shorts, manage your trades from start to finish, and more.
  How to overcome the "Irrational Fear of Shorting". I'm the first to admit, this held me back in the late 90s when I was first day and swing trading as well.  The fear that you short something and it runs way up and costs a big stop-out.  With the new 2010 tactics I'm teaching, this should quickly become a "non-issue" for you, as well.  Nowadays I have complete peace of mind selling before buying... I'll show you how it all works, starting with very small position sizes, then scaling up, to keep risk low.  Most professional traders short -- you need to know how it works, too.
  Trading "Short Trading Blueprint" process that helps you easily and quickly determine where to place short continuation entries, as well as trailing stops for open winning short trades. This "foundation" for trading success uses actual proprietary, easy-to-follow entry and exit strategies that you'll learn about using current-market trading charts.
  How to set your entries and exits using a real chart trading workstation with easy-to-understand tactics you can begin using immediately. Plus Q&A to answer your questions about how to set new short entries, stops to help you manage your trading entries and exits with more focused precision during trades. We look at live charts as a team, then set short entries and scale-in entry triggers to learn from.

Here's What This Is All About, for Trading Upcoming Market Selloffs:

The market has been roaring to new highs this last month... and it's been great for continuation breakout trades.  But now we're starting to see potential weakness, and it's a great time to arm yourself with breakdown short-entry SPECIFIC trading patterns you need to know... for if and when the market starts to sell back down, like it did recently. 

You'll see exactly How to:

+ Spot breakdown patterns for selling weak currency pairs on new 52-week and 7-day lows, as well as intraday forex shorting patterns for the most-volatile pairs.

+ Trade ES short breakdowns for both intraday and swing emini trades. Spotting how to use 1-minute candle "micro trading" patterns on the intraday charts, plus new patterns on the 3-day ES chart is key to trading these patterns... you'll see HOW to trade these with me live online in the Shorting Secrets events.

+ Scale into specific ETF short trading entries and exits as they make big moves (hint: keep a close eye on the SPY/QQQQ/FAS/FAZ)... ETFs will be particularly good for shorting this upcoming month or so (I'll reveal how and why to trade these setups for you, too!).

+ Develop a specific step by step "trading plan for NEW short entries" that's designed to help you leverage into whatever the "winning" short direction for the fastest-moving currency pairs, stocks and ES pivots are for potential breakdown short play entries.

+ PLUS - I'll stick around for Q&A afterwards... so you'll get at least a total of TWO hours Plus Q&A time, so you can rest assured you'll get complete training, once you register your spot right now.

Now, let's see what else you'll be learning about, below:

Why Is This So Important (and Valuable) For Active Traders?

Initiating new short trades once the broad market starts selling down is a key to successful trading... because it helps you manage your trades carefully, like professional floor traders and wall street professionals do. It's absolutely essential to learn how to enter and exit using clearly-defined short signals, and learn how to do it for yourself from a real trader.

I'll teach you exactly how this all works, as we go through setting multiple short entries, stops and more. All shown to you in this upcoming 2-webinar "Shorting Secrets" series for active traders.

One key difference between professional traders and at-home frustrated losing traders, is professionals are fine with entering new shorts, very nimbly, accurately setting trailing cover-stops (and initial hard stops for out-of-the money trades) to help protect open profits... and knowing what specific chart patterns and price points to use for new breakdown shorts is a key part of this process, so you'll know when short entries are occuring, and how to enter and exit them with confidence.

This stunning 2-event series shows you the little-known tactics that skilled day & swing traders can use to manage their short entries and exits using candle charts, daily and intraday patterns, 1- and 10-minute day trading charts, and swing trading charts for multi-day trade round trips.

You'll learn advanced tactics for using reversal candle patterns (hammers/shooting stars), as well as ATR/average trading range, ADX and other tactics, combined in a new way to help you spot short breakdown entries on several different chart timeframes (everything from 1-minute 2-day day trading charts to 15-/55-day 60-minute candle charts for swing traders) is revealed in this powerful new trading webinar series for active traders.

And of course, adding to winning short trades only is a great way to "leverage" your capital and skillfully enter and exit your positions; you'll learn how to scale in on short entry trades as well. You'll discover all the specific trading setups you need to know in this rare live online two-webinar series for active traders.

How is this different from the recent Pivot Mastery webinar you did?
Pivot mastery taught how to enter reversals after initial breakouts and breakdowns; entering post-breakout/breakdown (which is an important skill to master; the webinar was very well received - thanks!).
In "Shorting Secrets", you'll be taught how to spot breakdown momentum entries for stocks, ES and forex pairs taking out new lows, for both intraday and swing trading breakdown short entries.

Think of shorting like
trading long breakouts, but in reverse, eg how to initiate new breakdown short entries on 2-day lows, 7-day lows and more using cups, candles and other key patterns with actual current-market charts we'll pull up together as a team). It's a perfect combination. And great timing, as since our NASDAQ composite is testing a new 3-year high here, in November 2010, we may well see the market exhaust itself as wall street professionals are selling to newbie traders at what may be a market high.  Learn how to trade shorts for if and when the market sells back down, which may be very soon.
Who is this for?
Ideal for both day and swing traders, you'll learn short entries using actual trading chart examples for stocks, eminis/ES and forex pairs, PLUS Q&A with charts of your choice as well, during each session. I'll stay around for at least a half-hour answering specific questions at the end of each event as well, pulling up charts together as a team, to make sure you "get it" and understand exactly how these techniques work for yourself, and how to use them in your own trades. TRADING TIP #1:
Shorting Multi-Point Gaps Up Can Provide Potentially Winning Entries:

Here's actual trade examples from LVS overnight hold exit, and shorts I did on October 28, 2010
