Remember that I have my re-introduction to our weekly ‘pow wows’ for my Quant Analytics members. We have nearly 200 which I am proud since I just rolled my former Elite into this new membership. Also, there will be a FREE introductory to these so you can get a form of the style.
Our first weekly one for all to attend. This will become a major feature of our private new
Quant Analytics members. We will talk general trading with automation programming
techniques if you are interested.
There will be a ‘loose’ agenda on this which I will send within the next 2 days.
Remember, if you want to get my daily human trading call videos, you can join my Quant Analytics here.
