One of the most important things you can do when you’re building a Wealth Building Plan is to structure it to produce Consistent Growth and Income – the Holy Grail of Trading and Investing.  And, nowhere is it more important than in long-term portfolio management when the objective is to grow your portfolio without having to be involved in day-to-day management – Chris will let you know when the Trend or Market Sentiment change.

The problem with the old Buy-and-Hold and Stock Picking Investing philosophies was they never considered market fluctuations and trend changes, so your financial destiny was always at the mercy of “The Market”.

Worse yet, depending on the traditional Financial Services Industry to manage your money took you out of the equation and left your financial well-being in the hands of people more interested in their own well-being – not yours.

Happily, Chris solved those problems by combining Investing with Trade Management to trade With the Market Trends, both Bull and Bear, and put you in control of your portfolio.

You will never have to worry about market corrections or being in the wrong market at the wrong time.  Chris’s market knowledge and technical systems will always keep you front and center in the prevailing Trend.

Recently adding “Trading for Income with Options”, Chris has created a well-rounded Portfolio Management system for long-term, consistent growth with Income.

Having an income source adds to your peace of mind and the consistency you need.  Everything Chris offers is geared to making your financial life as easy and productive as possible.  To my mind, he has succeeded in achieving both objectives.


Take Advantage of the Market, Don’t Depend on It

I had been looking for this kind of long-term portfolio management for a long time before finding Technical Traders and Chris’s expertise.  Using a very limited number of ETFs (2 to 4) and his technical Trend indicators, Chris is able to take the lion’s share of significant Bull and Bear markets to produce portfolio growth under all market conditions.

If you’ve created a Wealth Building Plan for yourself here with The Diversified Trader, you’ll recognize that all of Chris’s services fit very well with my philosophies of personally taking control of your financial future and using the fluctuations in the markets to meet your financial goals, rather than depending on individual securities to make your dreams come true.  To add to the long-term productivity and simplicity of his systems,…

…Chris has taken these concepts to another level by using Index and Sector ETFs to maintain accurate Trend analysis and eliminate the risk of holding individual securities.

So you can take advantage of all that, Chris has Three Newsletters to put you on the path to success managing your portfolio for the long-term and generating income along the way.

The earlier you start and the more wealth you have to grow and protect, the more Chris’s systems and guidance will impact your financial well-being.

His proprietary technical system based on Relative Strength and Momentum gives Chris the tools to support the guidance his services produce that’s so important to your success.

Good for anyone’s long-term portfolio, the two Directions, from Planning Basics, that are impacted the most by Chris’s systems and expertise are:

  • TI2 – “You’re looking for income beyond what the financial services industry can produce and want to protect and grow the wealth you have, but you don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it.”
  • TW2 – “Your career or business is doing great, and you know you need a plan to grow and protect your wealth for long-term security.”


Chris’s Three Trade Alert Newsletters
Your Wealth Management Solutions

Start by looking at his new flagship strategies, with link to the individual Newsletters, below.  Combining strategies is a choice you can make as you get to know how Chris operates.  Life can only get better.

  • Consistent Growth Strategy (CGS) – Formerly known as the Technical Index & Bond Trader (TIBT), CGS is the answer for my vision of Trading for Long-Term Growth. Using a combination of ETFs – basically the S&P 500 Index, Treasuries, the Dollar Index, and Inverse ETFs – Chris applies his technical analysis system and exclusive Market Sentiment Gauge to identify major trends – Bull and Bear – to maintain a smooth growth curve in Your account.  Trading maybe 5 to 12 time per year, this powerful strategy will give you outstanding performance for long-term growth.  For the more aggressive among you, Chris adds the Nasdaq 100 and leveraged 2x ETFs for both major indexes to supercharge your results.
  • The Technical Wealth Advisor & BAN Trader (BAN) – Sector Rotation defines the Market and the everchanging sentiment that controls the outcome. Only holding the best three Sector ETFs and two Index ETFs at any time by using Chris’s BAN (Best Asset Now) methodology will outperform the Market and give you substantially greater ROI than trying to pick the next great stock.  Trading maybe 15-25 time per year, Chris aims for a range of 20% to 65% ROI depending, again, on market conditions.  He’s added BAN Trader Pro that gives you a fourth ETF Signal that will boost your return and help maintain a smooth growth curve.  This Wealth Advisory even comes with a short-term “Hot List” with daily market commentary for active traders who want more.
  • Options Trading Signals (OTS) with Brian Benson – Perfect for the TI2 Direction above, Trading Options for Income can fit into anyone’s Wealth Building Plan and give you an income source no matter what you’re doing with the rest of your life. Chris has now put together the perfect combination of tools to manage a portfolio for maximum performance.  Steady income, risk management, and consistency are all benefits of using Options along with the Portfolio Management advisory that best fits your lifestyle.  Having Brian Benson to run Options Trading gives you the added vision of market behavior to round out your longer-term Wealth Building Plan.

Brian’s Options program is great for beginners and, as a reminder, requires a Margin Account (Level 3) to be able to trade the Option Spreads that are at the core of the income strategies Brian will be running.  The benefit of Swing Trading Options for Income is not to be overlooked for anyone wanting to improve their financial life, so, if you’re new to the world of Options, study Understanding Options right here with The Diversified Trader to get a head start before venturing into Brian’s very lucrative trading program.  Remember:

Everything is Easy When You Know What You’re Doing.
