Q: What is ActiveTradingPartners (ATP) service?


A: The ATP advisory service is based on the proprietary combination of David Banister's "MRM" entry and exit methodology combined with crowd behavioral patterns. We work with small to mid cap liquid stocks and essentially buy pullback patterns right at the pivot point where we see an upside reversal coming. We combine both fundamental research along with our MRM and Elliott Wave based timing systems to pick the right stocks, but also at the right time and entry and exit points. MRM stands for Mathematical Regression Modeling and was developed by David during the 2008-09 market period using ETF's. He has since adapted this system for individual stocks and for the partners who learn and follow our methods in real time with buy and sell alerts. While many other traders and investors are buying near the tops or selling right near the bottoms, our MRM system forces you to do the exact opposite and then profit. We know of no other service that applies this theory to trading with the consistency that we do.

This service was designed from the ground up to help individual traders who want to focus on consistent, accurate and profitable trades on a weekly basis with the average "Scale in buy period" of 2-3 days per Investment Alert. The average hold period is days to weeks, and sometimes even months. We recommend a "Trim and Plant" strategy, where you trim your winners slowly and plant the money into a new position. The important thing is we try to identify low risk entries, with good short to intermediate upside. Our focus is on risk reduction first, and upside second. Protecting capital is very important in order to have long term profits. With over 30 years of combined trading experience this strategy has been refined to generate very high success rate. We try to limit downside risk to 2-5% on every recommendation.

Q: How does this MRM Buy Low and Sell High System Work?


A: The Momentum Reversal Model that Active Trading Partners, LLC research allows our partners to attempt to enter low and exit higher. What ATP research has pioneered literally turns most of the common trading methodologies upside down. A combination of physics and human behavioral patterns can present the swing trader or investor entries in stocks to buy at opportune lower risk points and exit at higher levels. Traders as a rule tend to repeat the same chase a stock up and sell it down patterns over and over again, and the MRM method actually works to identify the crucial pivot lows and pivot highs to attempt to profit from the swings. Most investors panic out of a falling stock at just the wrong time, and chase a rising stock right at or near the peak. The MRM system actually works to take advantage of this crowd behavior and we provide research on a position where we think its near the low and then attempt to exit near the swing highs.

Q: Why $249 a month OR
$649 discounted for 3 months and we throw in  


A: $249 PER MONTH, about $25 or less per investment alert, a great value with a great Return on Investment!

$20,000 into our average alert has historically produced over a 100 to 1 return on the investment alert cost.

Historically our new positions have outperformed the market by extremely wide margins.  A subscriber who commits $10,000 to each new position alert and follows our ongoing updates and selling advisories, is likely to see 40 to 1 or  more return on their $249 monthly investment to be a Partner in our service.  ATP may raise the price in the future, but for subscribers we are currently offering $649 discounted for 3 months and we throw in, and/or $249 per month subject to change in the future. All subscriptions renew automatically, and are non-refundable.  You may cancel at anytime.

Q: How will you make sure to limit the number of people receiving the Investment Alerts so as not to cause a problem with trading volumes and risk/return levels?

A.We have software that constantly tracks and reports when and where our Partners log in to the site.  This allows us to determine if a username and password is being used on more than one computer simolutaneously.  If we discover this is the case, we reserve the right to terminate that partner permanently from our service.

Sharing trades with unauthorized users will only make the service less effective for our partners, and this would force us to close the service and take it back private for just a few people. Please respect the needs of others who are paying members.

Q: What type of stocks do you focus on?


A: At ATP we believe small to mid –cap stocks offer the most potential to take advantage of investor behaviors and often lack of information which creates price discrepancies. A combination of researching recent IPO's and or little followed small caps, along with our MRM timing system gives us a major edge. Small and Mid Cap stocks often move very quickly and we can take advantage of volatility for profits. We make sure to look at stocks that are liquid to trade, and/or that we believe are on the cusp of major swarms of new volume and investor interest.

Q: Do you also trade exchange traded funds (ETF's)?


A: Yes, In our opinion, if we feel there is more of a bear cycle at hand, ATP will be more likely to deliver ETF trade recommendations to our subscribers vs. individual stock trades. 

Q: How many trades or alerts per week do you have? How do you alert them?


A: Our MRM timing model and market patterns (Bull Trend or Bear Trend as defined by our TMTF Service) will dictate the level of activity. In general though, between trimming back on positions, adding on dips to existing positions, or initiating new positions you can see anywhere from 2-10 action alerts in a week. These will be delivered in real time via Email and Post to our website both. We also will be using a smart phone action alert system in 2012 that you can download and set up on your phone.

Q: How do you provide the trading signals?


A: We send out our research reports with an alert Email in real time and post the research on our private website for paying partners. We advise our subscribers to read the report in it's entirety. We have specific rules for buying, selling, holding and trimming positions and taking profits. We give suggested entry ranges and exit ranges but advise our partners in our instructional materials to set their own stops according to their risk profiles and tolerance. We also advise to consult a professional and that our research is our opinion only

Q: Do you own the stocks or funds which you send alerts for?


A: We disclose when we are participating in ATP research positions normally with position updates. Our Terms of Use agreement that you agree to as a subscriber before beginning with ATP outlines our disclosures in detail. We therefore may in the due course of regular trading and investing buy, sell, or hold various ATP research positions at anytime. Please read theTerms of Use agreement for more details.

Q: Do you trade our money for us?


A: Sorry, We do not manage client's money.

Q: Do you sell clients email address and other personal information?


A: No, We do not share your personal information with other individuals, sites, or services. Once in a while I may send some useful information from a related service or product, but only if we think it will be of use to you.

Q: Are the membership payments reoccurring?


A: Yes, all of the memberships are reoccurring for your convenience. All memberships can be canceled by simply sending me an email, or you can cancel through Paypal.

If you have any questions that were not answered please send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


"Others focused mainly on chart data and concluded that not only has a top been put into place in gold but that –inevitable upward corrections notwithstanding-the metal is headed for significantly lower value zones. One such detailed analysis – made just three days prior to yesterday’s bloodbath-is certainly worthy of the ‘replay’ button being pushed (maybe several times even) in the wake of the Thursday cave-in. Active Trading Partners’ David Banister appears to have been among the very few who rang the alarm bell prior to the conflagration in the market."
