About

My name is Brad Konia and I’ve been a trader and student of trading for the past twenty years. During that time, I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on trading software, trading systems, courses, books and other educational materials. I’m embarrassed to say, I once spent $40,000 on a “revolutionary” neural network trading platform. The hypothetical equity curves looked great, but this was before I knew about Monte Carlo analysis. In live trading, of course it lost money. So besides spending tons of money on trading education and software, I’ve also paid my tuition in terms of real money lost to the markets.

Over the years, I’ve learned a few things, including how to trade profitably. I’ve studied many of the popular trading methodologies and some less well-known approaches. Eventually, I developed my own methodology that synthesizes elements from some of the best methodologies, combined with my own proprietary indicators, into a unique synergistic approach. You could trade any one of these approaches profitably, but when you combine them all, the underlying structure of the market snaps into view, allowing you to trade with an unparalleled level of confidence.

Cycles analysis is the cornerstone of my trading methodology. I discuss cycles in much greater detail throughout this site, but briefly, all natural phenomena follow certain rhythms or cycles. From the beating of the human heart to planetary movements and the tides of the seas, everything in nature has its own cyclical signature. Since financial markets are driven by human emotions, it follows that markets also have a natural rhythm. Edward Dewey and JM Hurst pioneered cyclical analysis in financial markets. I’ve studied their theories and found them quite useful, but these theories were developed at a time before modern computers were available. More recently, Lars von Thienen advanced the science by developing updated algorithms capable of extracting cycles from today’s noisy market data. Lars has published several books and written numerous articles for prestigious trading journals such as Trader’s World and others.

My collaboration with Lars led to the development of my flagship software product, PrescienTrader. PrescienTrader is a remarkable analysis tool that runs as a plugin for AmiBroker. It uses extremely sophisticated algorithms to extract cycles from financial markets and project future price movements with uncanny accuracy. If you’re already a successful trader, PrescienTrader can take your trading to the next level. If you’ve been struggling to become successful, it may be the missing piece of the puzzle you’ve been searching for. Either way, it will be a valuable addition to your trading toolkit. It provides hedge fund quality analysis at a price any serious trader can afford. In fact, once you try it, you’ll realize you can’t afford to trade without it.
