NO MAGIC FORMULAS. NO BLACK BOX HOCUS POCUS. Just trading techniques that work.
You’re probably here for our free 50-page special report, “The Mercenary Axioms: 12 Power Filters for High Probability Swing Trading.”
We’re putting the final touches on the report and will be ready to send it out shortly — no strings attached. Just click this link:
But first, you may be wondering… does this stuff really work?
The answer is YES.
The proof is in the pudding. And the “pudding” is real world results.
We use the axioms — the 12 power filters — to swing trade real capital in real markets, day in and day out.
And since May 1st, 2012, we’ve been tracking and broadcasting trade signals for our High Probability Swing System, or HPSS for short.
These signals — complete with entry, risk point, and profit target — are sent out an hour before the market opens. Every broadcast is archived and time-stamped. The full trade record is available in the HPSS archives.
You can see recent stats in the green box below… as we said, this stuff works!
Now, you know the standard disclaimer: “Past performance does not guarantee future results.”
And of course that’s true. Sometimes an exceptionally “lucky” result cannot be repeated. And sometimes favorable market conditions can make a trading strategy look brilliant — for a little while. (As the old saying goes, never confuse brains with a bull market.)
But as far as our results go, consider the following:
- Our record thus far contains almost 100 trades (a significant number).
- Profits are distributed across winners in uniform fashion — no one-off “lotto picks.”
- Trading conditions for 2012 have NOT been easy!
- The amount of headwinds, political backlash, and “chop n’ slop’ has been high.
Heck, we don’t have to tell you. If you’ve been watching, you know how rough recent markets have been.
We aren’t showing you a “bull market baby” strategy, taken from a period when all stocks are going up. Our methodology makes money long or short — a key aspect of solid performance.
It’s the hard numbers tell the story: More than enough trades to provide solid statistical relevance… no winning trades “cherry-picked” or losing trades left out.
(And again, every trade was broadcast to live subscribers beforehand… and is faithfully recorded in the HPSS archives.)
In terms of “credibility,” here’s the bottom line: As active swing traders, we’ve held our own in some of the roughest, choppiest, head-in-a-blender market conditions on record.
Our methodology has done what it’s designed to do: Preserve capital and grind out profits in choppy times, while situating for the truly BIG gains when better market conditions come around.
(And they will… they always do).
And that’s the really good news: We have no crystal ball, but we know our hybrid systematic / discretionary approach performs even better in “good” or “great” market conditions than it does in “tough” conditions — like the ones we’ve seen this year.
And thus, as we move well beyond 100 trades, towards 500 trades and eventually 1,000 trades on the books, we expect the win/loss ratio to gravitate even higher — towards the 55% range — and ‘R’ (a multiple of average reward relative to risk) to further increase.
(Again, the only guarantees in life are death and taxes… but we’re confident…)
How are we getting these results? What’s the “secret?”
Again, there is no secret.
Just consistent process… and 30 years of combined trading experience… and the 12 filters, which we explain in full detail in the 50+ page report.

Hmm. You haven’t clicked the sign-up link yet. (If you had, you’d be transported to the bottom of this page, where you can then input your email address.)
Perhaps you’re asking: “How can these guys have the key, when so many promises of ‘trading secrets’ are bogus? What makes them so different?”
And you know what? You’re right to be skeptical. Such a reaction is completely reasonable. There is a lot of crap out there — and crap is the only word for it. (Apart from another word that rhymes with ‘spit.’)
When it comes trading world promises of ‘holy grail’ techniques… ’95% accuracy’ claims… ‘inside information’ supposedly made legal… guru promises to “get rich with zero effort,” and so on… there is enough snake oil to float an aircraft carrier.
(And most of these guys don’t even take their own advice! Different strokes for different folks and all that. But in our opinion, taking advice from a trader who doesn’t trade, is like going to a sex therapist who doesn’t have sex. What’s the point?)
We — Jack and Mike, the founders of Mercenary Trader — are the real deal.
Not only do we eat our own cooking, we manage capital and keep the lion’s share of our liquid net worth personally invested in our strategies. (No abstinence here!)
We are involved, on the front lines, every single trading day. We are tightening risk points and hunting for new setups, every single trading day. Our trading frequency oscillates between low and high, as market conditions dictate.
And that’s another difference maker by the way: Other services offer ‘trades by appointment,’ which never made sense to us. Do you really think the market is going to respect a schedule that says “opportunity will be sought on Tuesdays at 1:00 PM?”
We trade EVERY DAY. Some days we’ll have just one signal to potentially act on. Other days we’ll have half a dozen.
That’s just how real trading works. And the real world nature of our process — the fact that we are real, genuine, seasoned veteran traders — is what separates us from so many other ‘gurus’ you may have come across. (We hate that word by the way.)
So: Ready for the dirt on how we do this, complete with dozens of actual, real world trading examples (technicolor charts and all) to illustrate the power filters?
You know what to do:
Still want more, huh? Okay, one last shot here…
Maybe you think it sounds too easy.
“Just read some random free report, and somehow I’m transformed into a successful swing trader? No way.”
Well of course. That WOULD be ridiculous — if that is what was promised. But it isn’t.
It’s impossible for any outside knowledge, no matter how powerful, to transform a trader. Transformation is the kind of thing that comes from within.
Someone could give you the most profitable trading system in the world, and you would still have to commit the capital… you would still have to execute consistently… you would still have to handle the emotional swings, trade proper size, stay disciplined and focused, and so on.
In the end, it’s always up to the trader — to show the resolve and force of will necessary to make destiny happen. As Morpheus told Neo in the Matrix, there is a difference between knowing the path… and walking the path.
But, if you’re ready for a change… if you are internally prepared to make a “next level” transition, from unprofitable to profitable, or even from “good” trader to “great” trader… then getting on the right path — the correct knowledge path — can make all the difference.
Look, we don’t make impossible promises. Despite what many would have you believe — and as you likely know — there is no sugar-plum path to easy riches in trading. Why would there be?
AND YET: It is certainly possible to win, and win big, by making consistent profits year in and year out. There are too many documented track records — fat-tail outliers hiding in plain sight — to possibly deny this is true. (We — Jack and Mike — know a number of these personally, including multiple “Market Wizards.”)
The year-in and year-out winners are out there. Guys (and gals) making six figures, seven figures — eight figures even — every year like clockwork.
A select group of traders have done it for decades… and CONTINUE to do it… but only through factors like consistency, commitment and focus.
And of course, they have worked out solid, proven methods for winning in markets — bread and butter means of ringing the cash register, over and over again.
We’ve got our “bread and butter” approach too — honed and crafted over many years of trading, forged in the fires of the toughest market conditions imaginable.
(Has any single decade been more gut-wrenching, or flat-out challenging to traders, than the last one? We doubt it…)
A river of blood, sweat and tears has gone into the methodology we’ve built. As Joey Knish put it in Rounders, we’re giving you the playbook put together off our own beats.
And it’s all in the report…
Which may lead to your last question: “If this stuff is so valuable… and your knowledge was so hard-fought… why are you willing to share?”
We’re willing to share because, without the generosity of others who shared freely, our own success would never have been possible.
We are grateful for the knowledge that’s been handed down, and the opportunities we’ve been given.
We feel an obligation to “pay it forward”… and we hope to build a brotherly community of like-minded traders — including you! — who enjoy sharing and fraternizing and feel the same way.
Well, that’s it. Here we are at the bottom of the page!
