TTS - Trade Tuner System - More Q & A
There are a few inquiries on TTS - The Trade Tuner System
by Edmond Petitjean at the
discussion forum. It would be a good idea to have a refresher on the
newest questions on TTS, particularly now that there are good trends in
stock market improvement. Besides, you will see that TTS doesn't even
depend on having a good market.
basically I know you want to buy a stock at a low cost and resale at a
higher price then get rid of it. Or if your pretty sure you can get into a
small company and buy stock in it and keep it so it can continually grow for
you. I know there are certain stocks that fluctuate so you can always buy
and sell for profit if your timing is right. I've never taken the time to do
any research because I've never really had the money to invest. That should
change within the next month or so. I'm going to college this august and
will have extra money left over from grants and student loans. If I could
just do well enough to pay for the interest on my loans with mutual funds,
cds, or anything it would be a big help. I understand there is always a
risk. I also understand anyone who has ever accomplished anything they truly
desired never accomplished their goal without taking risks.
Even though I'm getting started late in life (being 32 and just now going to
college) I know it's possible with the right person helping me make I can
make sound financial choices for my future. I'll follow exactly what you
tell me to the letter. If it doesn't work out then I'll just have to
try something else. I chose to come to you because my mother was English. I
know that an
Englishman is more true to their word. So if you can help I would most
Thank You Edmond I look forward to both of us making some money.
I'm from Flemish origin (nearly the same language as Dutch) and we have an
expression that says "better late than never", so one can only admire those
that have the courage to start studying past their 30's.
If you order TTS you'll see how easy trading can be but you will of course
have to study the material (don't worry, it's not rocket science).
After that I'm always available to help you if something isn't clear.
Today the markets are too wild to think long term, so I would advise you to
swing trade (that means getting in and out in less than a week).
I day-trade the E-mini SP and average about 75% winning trades, you've
stated in your information you win on about 90% of your trades. I have a few
questions about your system in reference to day-trading the mini SP market.
Have you ever day-traded with your system in the SP market and if so what
was your win rate?
If you haven't day-traded it, how do you know it will work, most of your
material seems to be from a few years ago, the market has changed greatly in
the last few years with much higher volatility. In addition, anything I've
developed for day-trading inevitably has reduced profits versus what I saw
when I back-tested due to slippage.
Do you use a fixed target and stop or do you get out of a trade based on
If you have any information which would be more convincing I'd love to see
A: I have
paper-traded the SP on an intraday scale as an extra test for my system and
it behaves exactly as for longer term trades (days to weeks to months).
The markets have only changed on the surface, not essentially. I can see
this when using TTS.
This is the strength of TTS: it is so basic that it keeps its performance
today as it did in 1900. The reason that the markets are still the
same and will always stay that way (basically) is simple: the basic
influence behind each move of the markets is purely psychological (mass
psychology) and this makes the reactions very calculable. Mass psychology
doesn't leave much room for improvising.
Be assured that TTS as it is offered now is not something from some years
ago: it has continually developed since then. When you use it on the
intraday scale, it is really enjoyable to see how things develop before your
eyes just as expected by TTS.
For intraday sp trading I use a stop of 1 or maximum 2 points on the 5
minute scale! This shows you the extremely low risk when trading the mini.
I have been reading about the TTS Trading System on the Lets Talk Winning
web site and I have a few questions for you.
First off how many pages are there in TTS?
Q: How many different Stocks/Options, etc. are you following?
A: Maximum 10
stocks and indexes included. Most of the time only 1 index.
Q: How many Stock/Options, etc. can one realistically track on a
A: It is a good
thing to limit yourself to very few. 1 index is enough.
Q: What amount of Stocks/Option, etc. do you recommend to
A: 1 index.
do you get your data from? Is there a cost involved in obtaining the data?
A: I have
included a lot of internet addresses in the course. Most of them are
totally free. I even found one where the SP500 real time is free!
Q: In the
TTS system do you give some advice as to what Stock/Option/Index, etc. you
can trade (with some degree of safeness). I'm not asking for a specific
stock, but possibly
some guidelines, based on your experience.
A: You can
trade anything with TTS. Futures/Stocks/Indexes/... you name it.
As long as you can get a bar graph, you can trade it with my system.
However, I suggest to limit yourself to an index that is very liquid (SP500,
Q: Hello Edmond
I am most interested in TTS. I want to day trade the Emini S&P. Does
your system work well for day trading and for that futures contract? If so,
my initial questions are:
How many trades does your system average per day?
A: 4 to 5
Q: What percentage of your trades are winners?
Q: How big are your stop losses?
A: Depending on the timeframe. When you use 5 minutes frame,
stop loss is only 2 points.
Q: My goal is to consistently make 8-10 points per contract per day.
Is this feasible as a day trader with your system?
contract do you trade? Is this suitable for the E-mini S&P?
A: I'm trading mostly options on stocks or futures. The E-Mini
SP is ideal. I'll give you a web site where you can get a real time
graph of the SP for free! Here it is:
Q: Since there are 4-5 trades each day, does that mean you spend the
entire day watching the screen or is there a better way to predict when a
suitable trading opportunity may occur?
A: I don't do it often. Most of the time, I trade with a time
horizon of 2 to 5 days. If you trade SP intraday, you have indeed to
follow up as long as your trades are going on. But you can combine
that easily with another activity at the same time, such as working at your
Q: Since you have indicated that 8 -10 points can be made
easily each day, how many points do you go after on each trade? I am getting
the impression it is a significant number since there are 4-5 trades per day
and 8-10 points is easily made.
A: 2 points per trade can be expected reasonably on the 5 minutes
Q: Am I correct you only watch price bars or candles?
A: I'm watching price bards (OHLC) in combination with some specific
Q: How often do you trade and how many points per day do you
try to get?
A: I'm mainly trading 2 to 5 days on one trade. This way, I'm
not glued to my screen and by using options I easily can make between 20 and
100% on these trades.
Q: This has got me very excited. If I can make 8 -10 points a
few times per week and trade 4 E-mini contracts, that is an excellent week's
pay working 3 days per week.
A: You are right about that. There are people who want to make
more and more money. They forget however to enjoy it and so they
become worse slaves than those who have a 9 to 5 job. I like your
attitude of being happy with a nice income and still have time to enjoy
reread the initial letter Izak sent out about your system. Perhaps I
would be better off trading options like you do. If my goal is to earn
$6,000 to $7,000 per week, how much money should I be prepared to invest in
options each week and how much money would I have to have in play at once?
A: US$ 20000
Q: Also, typically how much time do you spend each day searching for
your buying opportunities?
A: Maximum 30 minutes.
Q: Since you hold positions overnight, don't you worry about news
which could kill an investment without giving your stop time to save you?
A: No. That's
the reason I trade options (only open buy and closing sell of puts and
calls, so NO writing of options). My maximum risk is determined from
the very start.
Q: If I understand the original letter Izak sent out about your
program correctly, you trade stock and index options. Do you have to
watch many stocks and indexes to find sufficient investment opportunities
A: A maximum of
Q: When you
purchase either a put or a call, do you know immediately where to place your
stop and when to get out of a good trade? If not, don't you have to
pay close attention to the investment just as you do if you are day trading?
A: I'm following a very simple stop rule: 50%. When to get out
is exactly determined by TTS.
Q: Once again, many thanks for all of your assistance. I
would not waster your time or mine if I was not extremely interested in your
program. The results on the web page are extremely impressive.
However, I am not certain I am reading them correctly. For example,
February 2, it says you purchased an option (I assume a call) at 813 and
sold it 1 day later at 815 and made $1000 profit. And did you pay $815
A: That was a
straight future. Not an option.
I am most
impressed with your quick response and how well your program performs.
Thank you for all of your assistance.
Q: Good morning
I hope this email finds you well. Let me begin by stating that I already
have one half of your complete trading system. I recently purchased
Jack Brusie's Option All Money Management Software and it is brilliant in
its simplicity and effectiveness in not only
preserving ones trading capital, but also shooting for triple digit returns
This is where TTS and you come into the picture. Let me state that I have
several criteria that TTS "must meet" as I prefer to to trade short term
swings using stock options, just as you do.
I do not wish to be stuck in front of a computer screen all day, which
eliminates day trading. It's too stressful for me. I want to be able
to trade one stock option at a time. I want to be able to log into my
brokerage account and check closing prices once daily.
I want to be able to
use a free service like www.bigcharts.com
in conjunction with TTS to mechanically select the qualifying stock and use
the OA software to manage my trading account. With the 80%-90% strike rate
TTS achieves, I will see a steady increase in my equity curve.
I will be trading US stocks only, and I will be trading outside of the USA.
I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
Thank you for your time.
A: You have
exactly the same attitude towards trading as I'm having myself.
Intraday is too much of a burden and long term is too boring (and also not
very profitable these days!).
I'm also using Option-All for money management and my own TTS for the
trading decisions: this is the ideal "marriage".
Bigcharts is also my favorite charting program: you can easily set all
required TTS-parameters and you don't need a database on your own PC.
When you buy TTS I'll also give you an internet address with online stock
scanning software that you can easily program to meet the main criteria for
TTS. It is not free but less than $9/month and it does an excellent
To resume: TTS + Option-All + Online scan = as good as things can ever be.
Q: Good morning
Thank you for your prompt reply to my questions regarding TTS. I, much like
yourself, have purchased many systems, strategies, books, software programs,
trade simulators, latest
indicators all in search of the HOLY GRAIL!!!
However, in my quest for the Holy Grail of trading systems I also realized
that Proper Trade Management combined with even an average number of winning
trades would result in a steady increase in the overall equity in my
This is where the marriage of Option All Trade Management Software and TTS
come together to finally complete my journey.
Edmond, I could immediately see the advantages of using the Option All
software to increase my bottom line while fiercely protecting my trading
capital. The benefits were staring me in the face. I feel the same way
about TTS, however natural skepticism as well as being burnt in the past
keep one cautious even at the best of times.
Edmond, it is this point that I wish to discuss my situation a little
further so that you can better appreciate what I am looking for from TTS.
So here goes:
I reside downunder and currently work full time, however my passion has
always been to generate a comfortable lifestyle trading the US options
market, while having the freedom to live life ON MY TERMS!!!
I have opened up an options trading account with a reputable discount broker
and am currently setting trading capital aside. I believe Options trading
for short term profits strictly buying calls and puts is the only way to
trade, for all the reasons you describe in your web page.
1. Power of Leverage.
2. Maximum loss limited to premium.
3. Daily trading opportunities.
4. Can be applied to any market, over any timeframe.
5. Initial whipsawing not an issue.
Edmond, I am looking to start options trading with a US$2,000 trading
account(A$4,000 roughly) using TTS and OA, to generate a minimum profit of
200%+ return annually. I know that if TTS helps me select options that win
80% of the time, then this will be a conservative goal. I will actually be
looking for 400%-600%+ gains annually, but 200% will be the absolute
Lets look at the results over time.
Year 1. Initial trading capital US$2,000 grows to US$6,000
Year 2. US$6,000 grows to US$18,000
Year 3. US$18,000 grows to US$54,000
Year 4, US $54,000 grows to US$162,000
At this point, I can withdraw US$62,000 as my annual salary and begin again
with US$100,000 and continue the cycle. I believe this to be a realistically
achievable goal and would appreciate your feedback in helping turn this
dream into reality.
Thanks again for your patience.
expectations are reasonable and surely possible with the combination
Your starting capital is however very small.
If you have $2000 to start with, you can't risk more than 10% on one
trade and that's only $200.
You can find options for $200 but it won't be the most interesting ones and
the commissions you pay will eat too much of your profits.
If you buy an option for $200 and you make a profit of 40% that's only $80
minus commissions equals $60.
Normally you'll need at least $10.000 to make it worthwhile.
Undercapitalization is one of the main reasons for going broke in trading
(besides not having an excellent system of course).
You could divide your capital in four equal parts of $500 and trade these,
but it is not an ideal approach.
Q: Good morning
I still have some more questions for you re-TTS now that you have a better
idea of my situation and what I hope TTS will do for my TRADING DECISIONS,
so lets get started...
I will be looking to trade globally, so I will have a laptop with internet
access, www.bigcharts.com, the OA
software and your manual as well as access to the SCANNING sites. Will
this be enough to enable me to qualify several stock options (picking the
best one) to trade for a short term profit/loss easily targeting 8 out of 10
winning trades all in around 15 minutes daily using nothing more that the
closing days prices, checking in once daily?
Q: This is essentially what I am looking to achieve with TTS, and I
would like to offer you the highest praises if you can deliver what I ask!!!
Edmond, some of the sites and products I have purchased recently to use in
conjunction with OA all seem to use lagging indicators which get one in when
most of the move has already taken place or provide many false entries into
the market or are just downright useless as well as relying too much on
one's skills in reading a bar-chart (and you know as well as I that 10
people looking at the same chart will interpret it 10 different ways.) You
see how frustrating it can be for those of us out there trying to succeed in
exactly where TTS shines compared to other systems. No lagging at all
and very few false entries and no interpretation on your side.
Q: I would ask
you to please be keep in mind that I have no interest whatsoever in being
glued to a computer screen all day. I want to log on after work, check the
closing prices, change in option premiums etc, adjust stops if necessary and
perform new scans if a trade has hit a profit or loss target. That's
it. A totally relaxed way to trade which enables me to sleep well at night
while churning out obscene profits from the market on a consistent
A: That's how I
am doing it.
Q: Once again I need to be sure that this will be The One. I have
lost so much $$$ in the past, but rest assured that I will never give up
until my goal has been achieved.
Getting back to the US$2,000 account, using your 50% loss of premium rule
and trading only 1 contract at a time, even hitting an 80% strike rate will
result in the following. 8 X 50% = 400% less 2 X 50% = 300% return. Is this
What would be required of me to achieve profit returns of 200% per annum on
reasoning is correct if you trade each time for the same amount of money.
However, using Option-All will transform the few losers in winners, too.
200% a year is very
reasonable and you will attain it easily. It could be 10 win of 20% as
an example. so, if you only make 20% per month you will reach your
Q: Having TTS
be purely mechanical is of utmost importance as it eliminates the emotional
factor coming into one's trading decisions. Also having it be simple to
understand and implement is paramount. Would you care to elaborate on this
in more detail?
A: TTS is
self-explanatory. If you have exercised it a few times on some graphs
you will see how easy and eye opening this method is. So, hands on!.
Q: Edmond, what
makes TTS work so well in so many different markets, and under such a wide
variety of conditions? I feel that it is important to know why it is able to
correctly identify winning trades some 90% of the time? This just seems TOO
GOOD TO BE TRUE and you know what they say???
A: I know what the
losers are saying. People are strange animals: they like complexity
and are only comfortable when they are drowned in impressive looking
mathematics. What they don't understand is that those people who are
developing all these IQ250 systems... are not trading. They are only
hiding their ignorance behind complexity.
And why does TTS work
in any market? Simple: because it is not based on markets but on...
people! The real secret is in being able to measure the reactions of
the masses (that are trading).
Q: This must
have something to do with your EPE Oscillator indicator which is a modified
version of an existing indicator. How did you come up with this one, and
what convinced you finally that it would continue to pick 8/9 out of 10
winning trades on a consistent basis?
A: See reason
above: because it is the best way of measuring the reactions of the masses
that are trading and human behavior won't change.
Q: Edmond, how
can I prime my OA software to achieve the very best results options trading
using TTS as opposed to your 50% premium rule?
A: 50% is
not a rule: it is the maximum that you would allow to lose when using OA.
See OA for details.
could you also email me some recent trading results (say 1 week
trades using end of day data much like I will be trading) to illustrate the
awesome power of TTS?
"Edmond, I've gotten a little carried away but I am excited about
being so close to having my dream realized. Once again I will thank you for
your time and look forward to hearing from you soon.
It is the 90%
correct trading decisions in TTS's overall performance that has me
intrigued. Even with a US$2,000 account, and buying a $300 - $500
option, and losing half the premium still leaves me with the opportunity to
fight back and increase my trading account trading 1 lots only, until I have
a decent capital base. When the account reaches US$10,000 in size, than I
can implement OA full speed ahead.
trading methodology that I can feel comfortable around is worth its weight
