ALL THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM 10+ YEARS DESIGNING TRADING SYSTEMS FOR PROFESSIONAL TRADERS, IN A SINGLE TRADING COURSE
Trading nowadays is different from the trading 20 or even 10 years ago...
Getting a solid edge became more challenging in an ecosystem run by trading bots, investment funds, VCs working with the smartest people in the world.
Anyone can Profit from trading if they use the "correct" tools and RISK Management system.
So let's work together
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day - teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"
We stand strong behind this quotation.
You'll get our entry and exit signals across many asset classes/timeframes - though we worked a ton on our Trading Course to teach you how to be consistently profitable.
Whether you're new or experimented trader, a non profitable or already profitable trader, Best Trading Indicator will teach you how to transform your trading into a money-printing machine.
Our decision helper tools simplify your trading by removing the subjectivity.
A systemic trading is the only way to get the rewards we expect and even more.
A Trading Course presented by Dave and his father
Dave teaches the BEST way to think about trading
Dave is the Best Trading Indicator CEO, and started trading from a very young age.
He's the one developing the trading scripts for Best Trading Indicator based on powerful custom convergence systems.
In this course, he shows how to evaluate your risk, adapt your position sizing, take profit levels and strategy for each trade based on Technical Analysis only.
The course is separated in chapters to make sure the key points are understood.
If any questions, Dave is available via email, discord or this website chat.
My father makes sure the signals stay up-to-date
Creating a system takes weeks at best (after many years of experience).
A system needs to be visually backtested and then used for paper/live trading for a few weeks - then confirming the new signals appear sooner with a trading security being at least equal to the previous convergence system.
Without a systemic trading system
- You spend a lot of time testing new indicators, backtesting, forward testing
- You lose a lot of money ("the learning experience fees")
- It takes years before trusting a system - then it's very easy to make silly mistakes such as double checking what other traders do on social media
- You can't effectively screen a lot of assets
- You get fatigued after a few hours every day - leading to more mistakes
With a systemic trading system
- You don't have to look for indicators, to backtest because we're doing it for you
- You own a method and scripts finally giving you an edge
- You don't need to monitor the social media channels anymore. Your focus is on your TradingView charts and alerts only.
- We provide the screening tools for all asset classes
- You have more time to analyze calmly and take sound decisions.

TRADING METHOD – GENERAL (1/4)
BAD traders only care about PROFIT and GREAT traders are obsessed with RISK management
BAD traders are on their way to become GREAT traders once they understand that RISK MANAGEMENT has more weight in the profitability equation than PROFIT We are annoyed with all the FAKE trading education out there from people that never traded.
What they teach only focus on the PROFIT dimension without a proper risk and money management.
Our systems for all asset classes (Stocks, Forex, Indices, Cryptocurrencies, Commodities), all traders type (Intraday, Scalp, Swing) and all traders profile (beginners and experimented) are designed to make hundreds of points, pips, EUR, USD, … every day with an extremely lowered RISK
TRADING METHOD – GENERAL (2/4)
We made our systems simple and abstract enough for any trader profile
With our Method, no other indicator, analysis, social media is needed in parallel
Our Trading Method is an assisted step-by-step guide available from our Community Forum to the VIP subscribers
Upon subscription, we send a summarised PDF version with a great coverage of most of the entry and exit setups
TRADING METHOD – GENERAL (3/4)
After 15-30 minutes of left-scrolling on your TradingView charts, you'll realise that:
- The entry and exit signals make sense
- Making more than [200-500] pips/points a day is really doable
Our goal is to re-wire your brains about what trading really is
- It's not a get-rich-quick scheme
- It's a get-richer process requiring you to trade in a more algorithmic way
Trading with low timeframes is our BEST answer to be more accurate and reducing your potential losses
- You'll have some losing trades.
- Not all trades are winners
- Our frameworks give more winners than losers
- Winners are much bigger than the losers
TRADING METHOD – GENERAL (4/4)
Our systems detect automatically strong convergences based on custom indicators we developed for ourselves over 20 years of tradingWe are trading with the same TradingView scripts and the same Trading Method we’re teaching to our students Our entries and re-entries are designed to be as early as possible while keeping the RISK very low.
We provide also a complete EXIT system for Stop-Loss and Taking Profit
TRADING METHOD – Fundamental and News
When trading, we recommend only looking at the HIGH macro events related to the assets you’re trading - Twitter, News will disturb you and clutter your judgement
Please never trade based on fundamental/news.
We guarantee you’ll burn yourself as the financial markets aren’t logical at all
Trading irrational markets based on what you think/feel the market should do based on news is the best way to lose
There is an obvious disconnect between the real economical world and financial world
TRADING METHOD – THE BEST WAY OF TRADING
You don’t need to stay in front of your charts all day
You’ll get alerted with your/our TradingView server-side alerts by (
Email and SMS and from your TradingView chart) Evaluating an entry/exit signal will take you no more than 15 seconds
Waiting in front of your charts when there is no signal increases your Fatigue and decrease your profits
It’s much smarter to set the alerts on the assets/timeframes you want to trade and do something else for the time being

TRADING METHOD - The Built-In Trade Manager (Short example)
TRADING METHOD – Entries and Re-Entries (1/3)
The first entry of a trend (BULLISH or BEARISH ) is symbolized by a triangle
The re-entries within a trend are symbolized by diamonds with the same color as the triangle just before
We recommend having 1 opened position simultaneously only per trend per timeframe
If you get a diamond signal, but already are already in position (and not invalidated or stopped out to breakeven), we recommend not taking it
The initial entry price is plotted with a thin blue circle plot
TRADING METHOD – Entries (2/3)
TRADING METHOD – Re-Entries (3/3)
TRADING METHOD – Candles Coloring (1/2)
Activated by default but optional feature
Each color translates a different trades state
For a Long/Buy Trade:
- dark green when the candle close is below the entry price (in a loss)
- light green when the candle close is above the entry price (in a win position)
For a Short/Sell Trade:
- dark red when the candle close is above the entry price (in a loss)
- light red when the candle close is below the entry price (in a win position)
gray when not in a trade
TRADING METHOD – Candles Coloring (2/2)
TRADING METHOD – THE LEADING TREND (1/2)
The Leading Trend is a built-in but different system
Displays the Trend direction from a much bigger timeframe on your TradingView charts
Activated by default, each color translates a different bigger trend direction
By default, the colors are as follow :
- Green if bullish
- Red if bearish
TRADING METHOD – THE LEADING TREND (2/2)
TRADING METHOD – THE CLOUD (1/2)
The Cloud is our Custom Trend identifier
We made it such as to identify strong trends and “risk” zones In other words, identify if a trend is likely to continue further or reverse
TRADING METHOD – THE CLOUD (2/2)
TRADING METHOD – The EXIT process – Hard Exit (1/3)
We ditched the Stop-Loss based on price or percentage level because it’s not working
- We needed a way to get stopped-out because the trade is wrong (and not getting stopped-out because of slippage or bad analysis).
- We selected an algorithmic method as it’s a much smarter and efficient way to exit a trade when invalidated
Instead, we use our custom Stop-Loss called “Hard-Exit” and is a KEY component of our Trading Method
This is our algorithmic way of warning our subscribers that they MUST exit the trade no matter what they think-feel-want
We made a unique Hard-Exit per Framework ensuring our subscribers the losses being minimal the vast majority of the times
Symbolized by a brown vertical line , the “Hard-Exit” is an important signal warning the trader to exit as a reverse may likely happen
TRADING METHOD – The EXIT process – Hard Exit (2/3)
Q: What’s behind the hard-exit?
Hard-Exit or Hard-Stop are common terms in trading
They refer to exiting a position based on technical indicators (and not based on price value).
When those indicators are all giving contrary signals, the system displays and alerts us with a brown vertical bar (see next slide).
Contrary means for instance, we’re on a LONG trade, and then all the hard-exit indicators become bearish flagging a potential incoming reverse
Q: How to evaluate the Risk-To-Reward from our trades then?
This metric is very subjective. Because you could evaluate a RISK=1 and a REWARD=10 but that doesn’t mean your analysis is correct and not bias.
We made this exit system to lower as much as possible the losses (=invalidations) and stand by our assessment that capturing hundreds of pips a day, regardless of the asset class, is doable.
This level of abstraction allows our traders to have a stronger focus on their trades .
Because they know that, if invalidated, their losses should be minimal relative to the rewards to be captured during the day.
TRADING METHOD – The EXIT process – Hard Exit (3/3)
TRADING METHOD – The EXIT process – Take Profit Levels (1/2)
The Take-Profit levels are based on Algorithmic Multi-timeframes Supports and Resistances
You won’t have to draw <>any trendline or pattern or add any other indicator Our Method is complete and cover all scenarios to either exit with a small loss or taking-profit
Over the years, we found for each asset class and timeframe, the most relevant supports and resistances to be used as take-profit levels
Because the candles often bounce on them, we selected specific Moving Averages and Pivots for our Take Profit strategy
TRADING METHOD – The EXIT process – Take Profit Levels (2/2)
Part II - General Guidelines (Supports/Resistances)
Script included for FREE for all our VIP subscribers
Please Have in mind how to use the SMAs/EMAs and Traditional Pivots from our Algorithmic Supports and Resistances TradingView script.
A simple moving average (SMA) is an arithmetic moving average calculated by adding recent closing prices and then dividing that by the number of time periods in the calculation average
A pivot point is a technical analysis indicator, or calculations, used to determine the overall trend of the market over different time frame
Part III - To change the signals and the background colors (1/5)
Keep in mind we’ll always refer to Green/Red signals and Green/Red leading trend
Though, you can change those colors if you fancy more colorful ones
For doing so,Double Left-Click on the Indicator name thengo to the Style Tab.
