The Tradingology Course by David Vallieres
licensed the Tradingology video course for our Trading Room members because it provides insights into connstructing
and managing a portfolio of monthly income trades while incorporating other long-term and speculative
A central theme in our curriculum is the concept of diversifying risk across different securities, different price
levels, and different time frames. In assembling the Tradingology course, David Vallieres combined a wide range of
techniques and trading concepts - highligting the use of multiple securities, differing price level risk, and
multiple time frames. We have licensed the course, which is now available to Trading Room members.
The Modules in the course include:
MODULE 0: INTRODUCTION TO TRADING AS A BUSINESS & TRADING WITH
Description: This Module is designed to introduce you to a new way to trade stocks and options - as a business.
Emphasis is on risk management and building a portfolio of trades that can be managed 'by the numbers'. Learning
the craft, acquiring the skills required to be successful in this business.
MODULE 1-2-3: THE Greeks - MANAGING BY THE NUMBERS
Description: The 'greeks' play a critical role in your trading business. We totally de-mystify them and tell you
exactly what the Greeks are and, in practical, easy to understand language demonstrate how they impact your
business. The Greeks are the numbers you need to understand to manage your portfolio profitably. In addition to the
video, we INCLUDE the most comprehensive, yet easy to read 5 page CONFIDENTIAL REPORT on how to profit from "The
Greeks" available in the world (yes, the world, and no, I'm not kidding).
MODULE 4 : TRADE SELECTION AND STRATEGY
Description: We've set the stage, now it's time to get on with the work at hand. This is where things get
good and interesting. What positions do we take? How do we determine when and how? Do 'charts' matter? What is the
big picture behind what we're doing.
MODULE 5: PORTFOLIO BUILDING
Description: Build a portfolio by putting on positions that work together. This is where many traders go wrong -
they put on individual positions and do not understand how they affect your overall portfolio. Discover why
diversifying across time frames, prices and differing strategies is a key to making money.
MODULE 6: USING THE TOS PLATFORM - THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE
Description: ThinkOrSwim (TOS), in my opinion is the best broker and has the best trading platform available. If
you had to pay separately for the kind of analysis tools they give you as an account holder it would cost you many
hundreds of dollars a month in fees - with TOS they're free. I take you inside the TOS platform and help you access
the power you have at your finger tips. (There are other programs/software that you can use to analyze your trades,
but TOS is free when you open an account.)
MODULE 7: PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT BY THE Greeks, ADJUSTMENTS, VIX and More...
Description: Now that we have built our portfolio, how do we manage it by the numbers? We learned the Greeks,
now it's time to put them into action. The key to success is knowing how to look at the numbers and know, without a
doubt, what they mean and what to do with them if anything.
MODULE 8: THE ART OF ADJUSTMENTS - THE SECRET KEY
Description: What happens when our numbers don't look good? This is where 99% of all traders get killed in the
market... they have no clue what to do when a position goes against them and they lose money. It's too bad because
most trades can be saved to make a profit! Imagine making one small change to your position and increasing your
odds of making a profit by 80%! That's what adjusting can do for you! In Trading As A Business, we KNOW what to do.
We trade with confidence. We know and understand that when a trade goes against us it's an OPPORTUNITY to add to
our portfolio by adjusting. I call it Smart Allocation of Capital. The art of adjustments is the missing link in
trading options and stocks that almost no one teaches.
MODULE 9 : CLOSING POSITIONS
Description: How to close positions for maximum profits. How and when to close positions. The risks of holding
positions into expiration week. When an how to 'buy' short-term insurance to protect your profits and increase your
wealth in expiration week. How to close positions and get free trades left over that, although small, have a chance
of DOUBLING our profits.
MODULE 10 : THE BIG PICTURE - TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
Description: What kinds of technical analysis help us in our business? There are only a few key analysis tools
that can help you determine the probabilities of market direction and I tell you exactly what those are in Part 1
as well as give you insights into why the market moves up and down in seemingly random fashion. I'll also give you
a historical perspective on market movements going back to 1900 and give you a realistic plan of attack for
determining future market direction based on factual evidence. In Part 2, I dive into short-term indicators that
can sharpen your edge in the markets to better time your trades. Then I tell you about an indicator I stumbled on,
that predicts short-term and opening market direction with an amazing degree of accuracy close to 95% of the time
as well as how to determine intra-day movements and how to tell whether money is flowing into or out of stocks and
what it means for intra-day price trends.
MODULE 11 : ADVANCED TECHNIQUES AND EXPLOSIVE WEALTH BUILDING STRATEGIES
Description: Not even one of these strategies requires any knowledge of 'technical analysis' - it can help, but
it's not required. These make money whether the market goes up or down. These are strategies you can manage based
on 'the numbers'. One important thing I should mention: There are ways to make money that are NOT obvious. For
example, when you buy a stock you understand that when it goes down you lose money and when it goes up you make
money. Right? But did you know you there are ways to make money even when the stock goes down... and I'm not
talking about a little money. When good stocks move down the strategy I describe in Strategy #1 makes more money
than if they go up! How can that be? It's something I have been studying for years, and it works every time and
cannot fail to work.
Explosive Strategy #1: Using this one method a $14,000 trade turned into a $75,000 profit in
just 8 months. The most money at risk? Just $650. That was the total amount that was at risk when this position was
initiated and NO more money was ever put into the position. Amazing profit/loss ratio. And it doesn't matter if the
stock goes up or down but does require an longer time frame- 6 to 8 months is not uncommon for these trades to
create the profits you can brag about. Want to make a killing in the market? It doesn't get any better than
Explosive Strategy #2: Another method which we'll call "Flipping Stocks" let's us buy stocks
cheaper than others and if the market does not cooperate with our plan - we get paid lots of money for waiting
until it does! This is for bigger players with more capital... but when you have $15k or more to put to work, these
longer term trades generate explosive profits.
Explosive Strategy #3: This strategy has unlimited upside or downside potential and only $50 or
so of risk? This strategy is extremely powerful and one of the biggest real 'secrets' that no one has ever
discussed that I know of. Wait till you see the power of this strategy. You can make $1000's with a total risk of
$50 or so... it's extremely powerful. Think there's no free-lunch on Wall Street? This isn't one either but it's as
close as it gets to one! So think again. This is the perfect strategy for playing earnings reports, takeover news
stocks and any stock you think will move big in any direction with little risk.
Explosive Strategy #4: If you want to be more active in stocks but hate the risk, you'll love
this. Day trade without the risk normally associated with day trading. Can be setup to be an 'semi-automated'
trading system. Very powerful and again another low risk, high earning strategy for more active participants
(requires capital of $25,000 due to 'pattern day trading' regulations).
Explosive Strategy #5: If you liked the idea of the monthly income trades but was wondering how
to 'turbo charge' them to make a fortune, then you will love THIS. Instead of $1000-$2000 a month you could start
generating an income in the $5,000 to $40,000 a month range after learning this and with a lot less stress while
trading as 'big' as you want. This last strategy is the 'icing' on the cake... the peak moment in all your hard
study and will be worth 100 times what you paid for this course - maybe even more. Why didn't I reveal this before?
Simple: You would not be able to use this strategy without a good foundation that was laid out in Module 0 to 10.
Everything we have learned thus far has been leading up to Explosive Strategy #4 and this one.
