The Elasticity Toolkit

The Elasticity Toolkit was created to obtain maximum gains in both sideways and trending markets with minimum risk. Developed by Timothy Straiton, the system performs with incredible results in almost all equity markets with a daily periodicity.

The Elasticity trading system focuses on short-term market fluctuations and takes advantage of deviation or "elasticity" from the mean price. Imagine the action of a rubber band being stretched and at the moment where the expansion loses momentum, a contraction takes place, forcing movement in the opposite direction. The Elasticity trading system signals a trade at the moment the deviation from the mean loses momentum.

Tim realized quickly that just having the incredible tools within this add on is not enough. He added an entire training course along with the system to ensure that not only are you able to trade with the tools effectively, but overall you understand how to trade as a profession with consistent income.
