Below, you will also find a list of questions we have received lately and our answers to them. We hope they will help you learn more about who we are, what we do, how we do it, and how our offerings might fit into your own trading business. We hope to hear from you! Mindful trading!
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE OTHER REMEK! PRODUCTS TO USE REMEK! PREMIUM OR PLUS?
No. With Remek! Premium or Plus, you'll be receiving setups and signals, as well as analyses which you can trade any way you want, on any platform (Ninja, Tradestation, Metatrader or any other) without any of our software. That said we do recommend having Remek! Momentum Pro, but having it is not a requirement.
ON BEING TECHNICALLY MOTIVATED DIRECTIONAL TRADERS
While we’re well aware of and may even be highly knowledgeable in macroeconomic or fundamental analysis, in our short-term investing activities as technically motivated directional traders, we primarily rely on past price behaviour in our efforts to project future prices. We hear you: Efficient Market Hypothesis! Well, we’ve done our homework. Bachelier, Fama, Malkiel … we say this with the greatest respect to these masters: we’ve read and are familiar with their groundbreaking work. But we also know: we, people, are not machines. We are not totally rational beings. We are liable to be driven by our emotions, cognitive biases, social pressure, limitations in resources (e.g. time or money), and many other factors - discussed and researched in what is today called behavioural economics - that result in a sometimes-less-than-totally-efficient market. And that’s enough.
HOW DO YOU COMPETE WITH THE BIG GUYS?
We don’t. They play their own game, at which they can never be beaten. They have their own problems too (like their size or their endless board meetings). We’re small and quick, and we stay out of their way.
ON OUR CHARTS
Our charts are all we need. This also means that, we regard the "financial news industry” as, mostly, entertainment: we consider its effect on volatility, but we let the market do the math. We stay away from the market in situations for which we do not have sufficient resources.
- ON OUR INDICATORS
Like most indicators, the Remek! indicators are derivatives of price, not more, not less. It took us ten years to arrive at those that we use today. We keep our charts as clean as we can, and we are always on guard for our own cognitive biases. We strive to let evidence found in data guide our actions.
- WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT US TO KNOW?
While we are technically motivated traders, you’ll never see magic numbers, magic waves, magic lines, magic proportions, magic anything on these pages. If that’s what you’re after, you’ll have to look elsewhere. What you’ll see much of is reflections on human psychology and studies on how to exploit herd behaviour.
- A NOTE ON THE PROCESS OF BECOMING A TRADER
Learning to trade well takes time, measured in years. To become a successful trader, we have to act differently from our natural behaviour and instincts as homo sapiens. In several crucial ways, we have to reprogram our thinking, reflexes and ingrained behaviour, which is painful and is hard work, and for many, it may not even be possible. It is definitely not for everyone. Wherever you are along this journey, with the Remek! Market Intelligence service, you will be provided the framework and the methodology for successful trading. That said, you will also be required to think for yourself, make your own decisions, and take responsibility for your actions.
- WHO THIS SERVICE IS FOR
In our work, we use NT8 and our own algorithm-driven momentum-based, semi-discretionary methodology, and this is what we’ll be sharing with you. Although we’re on NT8, you can effectively use our service on any trading platform, whether it’s NT, Tradestation, MetaTrader or something else. We trade US futures, currencies and financials, but the methodology itself, since it's based in human behaviour, should work on other liquid financial markets as well. (You're strongly encouraged to do your own due diligence, though.)
- WILL YOUR METHOD CONTINUE TO WORK?
Our methodology is rooted in the inherent behaviour of financial markets as evidenced by decades of historical financial data. Will it continue to work? Who knows. We’re definitely on guard for any measurable changes, and, as a subscriber, you’ll be the first to know. Until then, we do what we do. One last thing: in trading, luck is nothing but skills plus preparation. Develop the skills, prepare well and luck should follow. So good luck to you all! Mindful trading!
- WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE REMEK! SYSTEM AND REMEK! MOMENTUM?
The differences: 1. We use The Remek! System on smaller timeframes than Momentum. Those renko bars in the Remek! System are similar to 5 min bars. Momentum's main chart is usuallly the 240min chart. 2. We use renko bars on the Remek! System. Momentum works with any bar type. 3. With the Remek! System, we're focusing on three setups. With Momentum, only one. The similarity: both are based on a valid market behaviour, mainly 'the pullback'.
