    Well, buying one or having something handed over may be fine, but have a deep understanding of the concept and the formula for it. Never buy a black box system that doesn't disclose the codes. You'll get stumbled, later on.

    That's a statistical guarantee. Actually, who's bought a blackbox system and made money? I've heard of a few who bought or used systems made by others but they understand system very well.

    With all due respect (but somewhat cynical), if I'll never see the good systems, then why should I buy your book on Professional Stock Trading (here's your chance for a plug :) )
  8. Yes, options and futures, limited equities.
