TradeMiner PRO Review
One very interesting tool I bought and use is the TradeMiner PRO. You can buy it for stocks, commodities and FOREX. I mostly use it for stocks. What they do is look at historical EOD prices and calculate “If you have traded XYZ on this day during the past 10 years you would have been profitable XX % of the time if you held the stock for X days.”
I have done some back-testing and live trading and it works pretty well. As with ALL TOOLS I still believe in the “art of trading”. However, if you spend the time using one or several tools – add all the info together and make the trading decision.
You also need to understand that TradeMiner is NOT a trading system. It is a research tool. And a clever one at that.
Here is how I use it on a list of ETFs to pick a short list of possible high-probability trades I can further research and decide on:
- Month of March – 10 year analysis.
- Having won >80% of the time
- 1-5 Trading days (Short is better for ETFs)
- Risk/Reward Ratio >2 is desired
- Score in the green > 3.00
