Easy to Follow Trades
Based on daily closing stock prices, Slugger's trades are market orders that are easy to execute.

You're in good company
I've participated in all the Slugger swing trades so far and I'm very pleased with the results. I've only been following for a short time but my portfolio is already up 18%. Easiest signals ever!
Cyndi Martin // Data scientist
With at least 20 years of trading experience, I’ve paid thousands of dollars for other strategies that didn't work. I feel Kurt has my best interest at heart. That maybe hard to believe in today’s internet culture but it’s true. And I'm happy to say Slugger makes me money!
Bruce Samuel // Retired USMC
Kurt is incredibly open about his Slugger trading model. He is also a fantastic educational resource to design and code my own trading systems. You can ask him anything!

I do all of the heavy lifting and number crunching for you. Internally, I have the Slugger algorithm running in real-time measuring and monitoring markets and systematically producing signals.
As a subscriber, all you need to do is place the market orders listed in the trade alert emails (trades are also posted on the Member's portal). You can follow along at your own pace and place orders with any broker of your choosing.
Slugger is a long-only algorithm that buys pull-backs in momentum stocks during healthy market environments.
It only trades US stocks in the S&P 500 and NASDAQ 100 (no penny stocks or small caps!).
All signals are generated using daily closing prices. You can place all of your Slugger orders at the start of the next trading day or after the market closes and be fully prepared for the next session — no intraday screen watching is required.
You can trade these signals in any self-directed retirement account type. Please consult your tax professional.
