Development of a successful trading system is part common sense, part science, and part art. The WOWS system is a straight-forward, risk-averse approach to investing and trading that works. It provides both research and a series of common sense (although not necessarily intuitive) rules that should consistently guide your overall investment efforts; it provides the analysis tools used to further qualify potential investment opportunities; and, through full access to WOWS personnel, it provides the one-on-one training and support so critical to learning how to correctly evaluate and approach high probability-of-success trades. With the WOWS system, you are not alone.
What the WOWS system can do is not only provide the insight needed to immediately improve your overall trading performance, but do so while significantly reducing your overall trading risk. Most systems (and investors) focus almost exclusively on upside gains while ignoring many of the risks. But if you lose 10% of your investment dollars, you need to earn 11% just to bring your monies back to even; if you lose 50%, you'll need to earn 100% to get back to even. This is why limiting yourself to small losses is so important, and is a basic tenet of the WOWS approach to investing - the WOWS system is specifically structured to provide the highest possible returns while doing everything possible to minimize the loss of investment capital.
We are not talking about an "automated" trading system. Automated systems just do not work for long - the market is a not a simple mechanical gizmo acting in accordance with the latest "back tested" laws of physics and mathematics, but rather represents a large crowd of people acting in accordance with the imperfect laws of mass psychology (and, as often as not, emotion). Market conditions inevitably change, and purely mechanical systems inevitably self-destruct. Investment success - as opposed to gambling - requires not only well-considered and disciplined insights, but a continuing emphasis on investor judgment and intervention.
Based on the concepts and discipline inherent in risk, money, and profit management, and the stock movement insights possible through technical analysis, WOWS thus provides a structured, risk-sensitive frame of reference for objectively determining if, when, and at what price to buy or sell stocks. And while teaching how to identify trends, how to find which stocks to buy, how to establish entry and exit prices, and how to effectively manage risk relative to your investment objectives, WOWS also provides the one-on-one training and personalized instruction and consulting needed for newer investors to truly begin to understand the "art of the chart".
