The One Hour Trader

Recording of the Four Hour Live Mentoring Webinar with  Adrian Manz

In this four-hour training class, Adrian presented his turnkey first hour trading strategy:

  • How to spot the trading patterns that will allow you to fade the herd mentality and book consistent profits at the opening bell. These strategies focus your attention on actionable events that occur in the first few minutes of the session, and get your day off to a great start.
  • How to anticipate volatility bands and pinpoint turning points in key supercap stocks. This portion of the course will focus you on how to trade the Apple’s of the world during the first 60 minutes of the day with amazing accuracy.
  • How to use breaking news to book fast profits at calculable market pivots. You never again will need to guess how to trade the news.  Adrian will show how his time-tested filter will allow you to fade the news and spot the same high-probability setups that he has trained thousands of traders to profit from since 1999.
  • If markets collapsing is something you fear, think again – Adrian will show you how to profit from predictable moves lower, and why his Around The Horn Trading Plan posted unleveraged results of 88% in 2008.
  • You will receive unlimited access to the recording of the webinar.
  • As a special bonus, you will receive a full month of access to Adrian’s Morning Mentoring Sessions. These happen during the first hour of every trading day, and are moderated by Adrian, his wife (and trading partner) Julie, and two of his star students, Rick and Ken.

Trading Opening Gaps

Online Video Course by Adrian Manz

Trading the open is a dream for many aspiring stock market operators. We have all heard the adage “amateurs open the market – pros close it.” But that is not necessarily the case. Using a model based in inferential statistics, Dr. Adrian Manz has found a way to accurately predict which opening gaps will revert into the chasm left by a close that does not align with an open. The resulting trade, which he refers to as the Baltimore Chop Gap Reversal, has been a favorite of hundreds of traders Dr. Manz has personally trained over the years. Once you watch the course and supporting videos, you will certainly agree.

This is a strategy for smart traders who want an edge on the typical retail player.  By the time you complete the Opening Gap Course, you will be on your way to understanding the edge that a quantitative model can provide.

Tricks Of The Trade

Softcover by Adrian Manz

From the start of their trading career, "Plan the Trade - Trade the Plan" has driven everything that Adrian Manz and his trading partner Julie Manz have accomplished.

Adrian Manz has always made clear to his students that they must have a concise trading plan.  He also tells all of his traders that they can only consistently replicate results that parallel those that a good plan can produce by constantly journaling and evaluating their trades.

In Tricks Of The Trade: The Jan - March 2003 Trade Log, Dr. Manz shows each trade that triggered during the first quarter of 2003. This was the period during which his best-selling book Around The Horn was first published, and the trade log is a trade journal of everything that happened in the trades, as well as in his head while trading them.

If you have ever wondered about what information you should be posting to your own trading journal, then Tricks Of The Trade is a great place to start. This book will point you toward an understanding of how to record your results, and your thoughts about every action you have taken.
