VCM Approach to Proprietary Trading

InITIAL TrAInInG Attempting to trade for a living without adequate training, accounts for the majority of failures in the industry, so a rigorous training program is the first step for anyone entering the VCM proprietary trading program. New traders first take a 2-day course written and taught by Oliver Velez which covers technical analysis techniques and a set of very specific income-generating trading tactics. They then participate in an intensive 5-day trading lab online or at one of the VCM offices, where they receive hands-on instruction in the use of a trading platform to put these techniques into real action. By the end of the lab, they are trading the firms capital in a live market environment. COAChInG SuPPOrT All VCM proprietary traders are provided with continuing mentoring by Mr. Velez and his staff through a combination of daily newsletters, intra-day email alerts and a live online chat room. These services continue the education process by enabling traders to study and interact with VCM professionals as they analyze and trade the market. Proprietary traders who choose to trade at one of the VCM offices will also be assigned their own workstation and be able to learn from the professional staff on site every market day at no additional charge. rISk MAnAGeMenT Novice traders tend either to have too little capital or risk too much capital too soon in the learning curve, often resulting in early failure. So, VCM funds each trader with its own money and has developed a closely monitored trader advancement program. The program is designed to increase a traders lot size and trading capital over time as they demonstrate consistent profitability. At each state of the process, VCM Risk Managers work with every trader to ensure that their daily capital exposure and risk of loss is tightly controlled. COMMISSIOnS VCM proprietary traders get the firms institutional commission rate of 2 cents per 100 shares, the lowest in the industry! Unavailable to retail traders, this institutional rate essentially eliminates the negative impact that commissions can have on profitability and greatly accelerates the journey to trading success. TrADInG CAPITAL Possibly the biggest barrier for most individuals interested in a trading career is access to a large enough capital base to generate a substantial trading income. The VCM proprietary program removes the hurdle by providing the traders access to the firms capital account for trading. Traders achieving consistent profitability will continue to have their trading capital increased as they progress through the advancement program, making their earning potential almost unlimited. LOSSeS Once an aspiring trader has completed the training required to enter the VCM proprietary trading program, VCM assumes all of the trading risk for the remainder of the learning curve. Proprietary traders are reimbursed with a percentage of their trading profits, but VCM absorbs any losses. VCMs continued financial success therefore depends upon the firms ability to recruit and train consistently profitable traders.

Using our decades of experience working with both novice and experienced traders, my staff and I have designed a program to recruit, train and develop our team of professional proprietary traders. While no system can guarantee success in this challenging field, our program has been structured to maximize the odds for a successful trading career by eliminating the most common pitfalls for developing traders.

Trade For Life


2 day Seminar: $2,495 ($1,995Early Bird Rate)

A Complete Guide to Trading for a Living

Course Description: The investment mindset must be put aside by the professional trader. The wealth mind-set as well must be reserved for other areas of ones financial life. The real professional trader understands that the name of the game is smaller profits, but smaller profits that are derived with extremely high consistency. In a very real sense, the talented income generating trader wants to become the personification of an ATM. He wants to be skillful at making small, but very consistent withdrawals from the market, each and every day, if not each and every hour. Mr. Velez has not only taught some of the countrys most consistently profitable traders, he actually employs over 850 traders who, as a group, are net profitable nearly every single day. Last year alone, his traders were up nearly 700% in both volume and net profits. Whats just as astounding is the fact that it is not uncommon for a top Velez Capital Management, LLC (VCM) trader to have as few as two to four losing days per year.
You are fantastic tutors and colleagues. I guess I got over the bump in the road I was facing last week. Also, I noticed from my trading log that I am doing well with my trades as well as those from the chat room, which means that I am learning a lot from Paul and internalizing those lessons. Thanks again! Michael C.

This intensive 5-day course moves theory to actual practice by giving the student the ability to actually trade the concepts learned in the Trade for Life 2-day course, live. Each attendee will be given the ability to trade the Velez Capital Management, LLC (VCM) equity account during various periods of each day. Those who finish all 5 days of the course will be accepted into the VCM Professional Trader Program. In this program, each trader is given a $50,000 capital account to trade, with which to perfect the VCM Method of Trading. All losses will be absorbed by VCM, while the student gains the necessary mastery of each technique taught. Once net new high profits are obtained, they will be shared between the trader and VCM.


Trade For Life


7-day Master Trader Program $9,995 ($8,985Early Bird Rate) Course Description: VCMs 7-day Master Trader Program combines the Trade for Life 2-day course and the Trade for Life 5-day Live Trading Lab into one educational session that takes place over seven days.

VCM Trader Program Advancement Guidelines

Risk Management Controls
At each performance level, traders will be assigned a maximum lot size, a daily loss limit, and a minimum weekly target.
MAxIMuM LOT SIze This defines the limit for any individual order as well as the total lot size limit for all open positions. DAILy LOSS LIMIT If the Daily Loss Limit is reached at any point during a days trading, no further entry orders will be permitted and a VCM Risk Manager will work with the trader to close all positions. WeekLy LOSS LIMIT If a cumulative loss greater than three times the Daily Loss Limit is reached during a weeks trading, the account will be disabled from further trading for the remainder of the week. MInIMuM WeekLy TArGeT This defines the minimum net weekly profit that must be achieved in order to achieve promotion to the next performance level (see chart on page 9 for details).

Hello Paul, just wanted to say Hi. Great day! I made $828. Robert S.

After performance level 2, the cumulative P/L at the current level must also be positive in order to qualify for advancement to the next level. If a trader has a cumulative draw down equal to twice the minimum weekly profit target at any level, then a VCM Risk Manager will review their trading records to consider demotion to the previous performance level.

Trader Payout Rates

(see table for Master Trader program details)

The percentage of profits that are paid to the trader will increase as traders advance through the performance levels. Refer to the table for the following details:
PAyOuT % This defines the percentage of profits paid to the trader at each performance level for the VCM Master Trader Program. MInIMuM TrADer AnnuAL This reflects the annualized payout amount for the trader if they averaged their minimum weekly profit target at each level, based on a 50 week trading year. These amounts have been adjusted to reflect the payout after coverage of the software platform fees of $50 per month. (Note that the software fees are only covered with trading profits, and that the trader is not obligated to pay the fees unless the profits can cover the charges.)

Thank you, Oliver, for your note and the continuing support, encouragement, expertise, and depth of your team. I appreciate the innovative series of risks you have undertaken in going beyond educational seminars to fund and mentor traders over the long run. It is a privilege to be with VCM, and I look forward to what I hope will be many happy years together. Michael C. I am so disappointed that I didnt find you before we signed up with another trading school!!! It cost $16,000 but I got more information out of just one of your DVDs than 6 days of their seminar training! I Get It when you teach!! So we invested in your 7 day Trade for Life classes in March 1-7, 2008 in Las Vegas! See you in Vegas!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!! Cant wait to start classes!! Sharon and Dave B.

Trader Advancement Process

(see table for Master and Pro Trader program details)

In order to advance to the next performance level, a trader must achieve the minimum weekly profit target for two consecutive weeks. A trader may achieve an accelerated advancement to the next performance level by generating four consecutive net profitable trading days as long as the minimum weekly profit target is met during that period. (Note - this accelerated advancement is only available for performance levels 1-5.)

One of the highlights for me was watching Oliver get side tracked on a live trade for his own account while he was teaching us the basics of placing a trade. While he was making this trade, he displayed his Level-2 screen and narrated what he was doing. His fingers must have been going a mile a second as he bought more and more shares of a falling knife stock. Maybe he bought up all the supply and stopped the fall, but he purchased over 20,000 shares in less than 5 minutes. The stock reversed sharply and he started gradually selling off his shares into the rally. He sold the majority of his shares at the top of the move for a nice $17,000 profit in about 10 minutes. I had never seen a live day trader actually trade, so this was an exceptional moment for me. Jim C. The education I got this weekend will enable me to join your team and embrace a sound trading philosophy. I have already made enough money today to cover the cost of your seminar, and thanks to your system, I will be able to duplicate this success virtually every day. I cant thank you enough! Kevin S. Hi Oliver, Just want to tell you how much I enjoyed the course last week. I am totally and completely hooked on this trading. Your training techniques and style are incredible. I have been on numerous training seminars and your style is quite frankly the BEST!! Carolyn C

Its amazing that I havent read your 10 Insights in any other book or publication. These are very much practical. This has completely changed my life. I have started seeing profits instantly. In spite of attending other courses and learning more on Support/ Resistance, Indicators and other things, these 10 Insights have proved more valuable than anything else. I have put your POD CAST in my PC and listen to it as many times as time could permit. Thanks for this great presentation. Murali S.

I am presently taking his seminar and I gotta tell you... Oliver is ABSOLUTELY A MASTER EDUCATOR!!!Pam B.

The Mighty Power of Reversal Signs

Posted by Oliver Velez at 1/2/2008 1:49 AM and is filed under Education


Trading is not as complex as people often make it out to be. Stocks go up; they go down and sometimes they go sideways. Only these three simple movements exist, period! Whats so complex about that? If one were to learn how to handle himself in each one of these three movements, or trends as they are often called, would not most, if not all, of the markets activity be covered, be understood? Yes. Looking at the 2-minute chart of Charles Schwab (SCHW) above, can you clearly see the three major movements I just wrote about? Im sure you can. Look at the chart and point out the down move. Now identify the sideways move, then the up move. How did you fare? I bet you did superbly. Congratulations!

The OnLy Three ThInGS ThAT MATTer

Simple? Yes. Easy? No way. Not when the bars are moving. Why? Because understanding does not always easily translate into right action. Aaaaah! Therein lies the rub, my friends. Knowing what to do, is no guarantee that we do it. This is why no training or education is ever complete without a period of real, live, supervised trading. Educational mastery is not enough without some level of experiential mastery, and this I accomplish by putting each one of my traders through five rigorous days of live trading, with real capital on the line...my capital. Those five days are critical to the traders future success because they serve as the necessary training ground for transmuting the intellectual knowledge of what to do into the highest form there is, experiential knowledge. When something becomes known and understood through experience, its yours forever.

So something can be simple, but not easy, such as hitting a little white ball sitting between your two feet into a hole in the ground only 4 feet away. Simple but not easy. But lets thank our lucky stars that trading is not difficult to learn and hard to pull off. If that were the case, the already small number of traders who make it would even be smaller. Because of the simplicity of how markets work and move, it only takes me two days of instruction to teach a student all he/ she ever needs to know to trade for a living. My 2-day seminar, Trade for Life A Complete Guide to Trading for a Living, is divided into 24 sections. Of the 24 sections, I consider the one that deals with the Power of Reversal Signs to be the most important, by far. All my traders learn that there are only seven signs that clearly indicate Bottoming Tails (BTs)


that a stock is about to change its direction. My students not only learn how to identify each one of these seven signs, they learn how to exploit them each day for consistent profits. ALMIGhTy TAILSThe MASTer key TO TIMInG reVerSALS

Of the seven powerful reversal signs, the one which commands the greatest potency and accuracy is the almighty Tail. Tails come in two varieties, Bottoming Tails (BT), which have bullish implications and Topping Tails (TT), which have bearish implications. Here are a few facts that will help you understand the power of Tails as a reversal sign and their proper use. After reading the below points, a full understanding of the chart to the left should be the result.

Read and reread the points below three to five times. The full and complete understanding will help you master one of the most potent signs of a playable reversal. Tails are so reliable that I have traders who earn their entire livelihoods from their use. They rely on nothing else.

Topping Tails (TTs) Represent more than 50% of bar's range from high to low; From above a bar's open and close; Are shadows that show what the bulls once had and lost to bears; Accompanied by surges in volume represent the most potent kind; End the current trend and begin a new one; Represent a major shift in the balance of power from the bulls back to the bears; After 3 or more up bars are the only ones we will consider playing/selling Can be aggressively sold/shorted near the end of the bar's formation;

Can be conservatively bought if the next bar starts to show green (trades above its opening price); That form far below a stock's 20ma are extremely powerful turning signs;

Can be conservatively sold/shorted if the next bar starts to show red (trades below its opening price); That form far above a stock's 20ma are extremely powerful turning signs;

That form in the area of prior BTs are doubly powerful reversal signs;

That form in the area of prior TTs are doubly powerful reversal signs;

One VCM Traders Monthly Record

DeAr TrADerS In my last post, I decided to show the monthly result for one of my Black Boxes, which as you now know, is an algorithm, programmed to trade the market each day without any human intervention. This robotic form of trading is truly the new era and will increasingly become a more important part of every professional trading firms operation. As I revealed to you, I intend to grow my current number of 14 Black Boxes exponentially. After all, these robotic systems are traders too. Whats more, they never slack off, leave for lunch, complain, get the Hollywood complex, and they never, ever want more. They just do their job, day in and day out... nearly flawlessly. huMAnS STILL ruLe But lets face it. Human traders have their positives too. In fact, the positives are and will always be much larger and more plentiful than those possessed by the robotic ones. This is why I have an aggressive plan to grow the human side of my trading operation to 1,000. Imagine this for a moment. Imagine 40 traders, all trading one pool of money (one account), averaging just $500 net per day. Thats no a big feat, as Im sure youll agree. How much is that per day? Thats right! Thats $20,000 net per day. Not bad, right? Now, imagine 1,000 traders averaging a conservative $500 net per day. Thats $500,000 net per day... half a million dollars...per day. My GrAnD PLAn Do you see where Im going with this? Collectively, my team of traders can make more money, take advantage of more opportunities because of our collective power. Collectively we are stronger than we are individually. From our commission rates, currently the lowest in the USA, to our software fees, to our access to key information first. These are just a few of the many benefits that a collective approach creates for its members. And who knows. I may not stop at 1,000. My initial goal was 500 traders worldwide. That goal was set in March of 2007, a little over a year ago. Well, I now have over 850 traders trading my money, worldwide. The growth has exceeded my every expectation and has revealed to me in the most glaring way that my dream was way too small. I underestimated the dreams power and allure. So, Ive adjusted to 1,000 traders as the new goal. Right now we are bringing on new traders at the rate of 60 per month. It may not take too long to get there. Well see.

The person who has never dreamed has never had one come true. So I say dream and dream big. Muster up the courage to dare. Dare to be truly independent. Dare to be unique. Dare to be a trader. And then think about taking the ultimate dare, to be one of us, an elite VCM Trader. Oliver L. Velez


Between all the various teachers and mentors Ive had, Oliver has been the most profound and encouraging, and delivers his teachings in a simplistic and interesting way. Godwin L.

One huMAn VCM TrADerS reCOrD With my grand plan now out of the bag, Id like to show you the last month of trading activity for one of my human traders, to show what the real potential is for many of you not yet trading at this level. Ive decided to show a very good trader, but not my best trader. Ive done this for several reasons, but the most important is to ensure that the record shows achievability. A trader with $8,000,000 of my money to trade is not in the normal category and would relate to very few readers of this article. For the same reason, I wanted to show a trader who was using about the same amount of money that I give to each one of my beginner traders ($50,000). Despite not being the best, I think youll all agree that this traders record is still quite impressive. Any time you can take a $50,000 trading account and more than double it in a month on a net basis, youre doing something right. Wouldnt you agree? Just keep in mind that I normally dont allow a trader to have such big daily draw downs, as is revealed by some of the daily losses in this report. But weve been operating in an excessively volatile market as of late, and as a result, Ive had to loosen up the daily loss limits for some of my more established traders. Enjoy the review, and DARE, my friends. Make this the moment you muster up the courage to dare. Dare to be truly independent. Dare to be unique. Dare to be a trader. And then think about taking the ultimate dare, to be one of us, an elite VCM Trader, if youre not already, that is. Happy Trading!

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you and Mr. Velez, Thanks. I have been educating myself to trade for nearly three years. I have been through every class offered by InvesTools and Optionetics. I have been trading with success coming at the expense of burned capital, time and heartaches. I just started getting profitable and had a good month in November, making just over $20,000. After listening to Mr. Velezs two hour seminar last Friday and incorporating the concepts he explained, my success and confidence has exploded. This week I have made more than I did in November! Imagine more profit in 3 and a half days than all of November, my best month ever! Thanks you so much and I look forward to my trading career with VCM. Lee S.

I would be completely lost if not for your books and your dvds. I find your teaching style makes it easy to understand and fun to learn. And the stuff you reveal is just incredible!! Thanks so much for this blog and everything else you do to help. Theres lots of folks who need someone like you to keep us pointed in the right direction. Michael P.
