Vibratrading transcends conventional grid and scale trading and it frees the directional trader from the shackles of maintaining positive expectancy. Vibratrading’s greatest advantage over conventional methodologies is that it need not be concerned with risk/reward ratios, win/loss ratios, expectancy or optimization. The number of winning or losing trades is of no relevance whatsoever. This obviates the need for any statistical trading edge in order to achieve profitable consistency. The Profitable Art and Science of Vibratrading is especially suitable for traders looking for another way to trade the markets profitably without the problems of losing money every time a stop loss is hit. No knowledge of technical analysis is required as all entries and exits are objective and require no guessing or price prediction. The vibra-directional and vibra-bidirectional techniques teach the vibratrader to profit regardless of market direction. The “pure” bidirectional mechanisms allow the vibratrader to profit in any direction without the usual oscillational losses associated with these types of entries and exits. Returns are generated from both long and short positions, with the ability to accumulate unlimited shares or contracts without any additional capital. Extracting short returns to the upside without any directional risk is also achievable by creating “artificial market tops.” Author Mark Andrew Lim brings a fresh product to the investor’s analytical portfolio with his vibrational trading methodology. This useful tool will allow investors to extract returns indefinitely without resorting to additional capital.
An excellent book for all serious investors and traders who are looking for a more objective approach to profiting from the markets. This book teaches you how to generate returns regardless of market direction and focuses on generating vibrational returns across all price levels without worrying about balancing probabilities or win/loss ratios. This is definitely the greatest advantage of a non-expectancy based trading methodology. This book should be in every trader’s library. —S.W. Wong Former Vice President, Citibank Bhd. (M) The author presents strategies for making consistent income that are easily implementable without the need to predict future price action. He masterfully combines vibrational, directional and bidirectional techniques within the constructs, giving traders a powerful and innovative way to maximize returns without ever having to top up trading capital since full earning potential is preserved at all times. This essentially gives a trader the opportunity to generate income for life, from a fixed initial investment that is never depleted. An indispensable book. —Conor McManus Managing Director, C-Risk Management Sdn. Bhd The financial world has undergone vast changes after the Lehman crisis. Among which, market volatility has increased tremendously against the headwinds from Europe and the US which inevitably affect Asia. There is a need for investors to stay invested despite mounting uncertainties in order to improve real returns while preserving capital. In this very challenging environment, author Mark Lim has shared in this book strategies designed to combat volatility and preserve earning potential which will be of interest to trading-inclined investors with a quantitative and disciplined approach. —Tan Beng Ling Head of Research, CIO, Kumpulan Sentiasa Cemerlang As a directional trader, I manage risk by employing a stop loss strategy, I was initially skeptical about Vibratrading's "no stop loss" trading style. However, the author presents a comprehensive alternative that opens a fresh and different perspective. It is important for all of us to have an open mind, as the frontiers of all knowledge can only expand when we are prepared to assess new ideas. The Profitable Art and Science of Vibratrading offers a new and comprehensive approach to trading, without the stop loss method of risk control. —Jeffery Tie Author, Aiki Traiding
