Unique Scientific Method from Mark McRae
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ---------
Earlier this year I was speaking with Mark McRae about trading systems and methods. He said he had something
very unique up his sleeve.Mark McRae Unique Scientific Trading System

He can only let so many traders have access to this at the same time because of bandwidth issues with his host. If the page is not there when you go for a look just be patient, He will put it back up again when things quieten down.

Here are some important facts about this method:

1. The whole method is fully disclosed. No monthly  subscriptions!
2. The method is simple to learn but it will suit traders  with some experience. 3. It can be adapted to suit any time frame and any  market.
4. You can use it for intraday trading with 5 - minute  charts or you can position trade it with daily or  weekly charts.
5. The method is robust and logical - once you understand  how everything works it will automatically make sense.
6. Large moves are automatically captured with very  little proportional risk.
7. Even on 5 - minute charts there is no need to stay  glued to the screen. Once your information has been  gathered and the criteria met - you can set it and go.

Anyway, that's about it, I think this is really special so remember there is very little time if you want to take advantage of this. You can see everything here:- Mark McRae Unique Scientific Trading System
