Stop Wasting Time and Money On Losing Strategies and Build Profitable Strategies With This Proven Blueprint!
Most system traders are going to fail but that does not have to be you!
Did you know most system developers are making the same damaging mistakes over and over? To make matters worse, most system developers do not take the time to create a development process. They don't have a set of repeatable steps that they can count on to guide them through their entire development process. Instead, they take a haphazard approach. The result is they make the same mistake again and again. They build a system that doesn't work.
Building a trading system can be an overwhelming experience. That's why most people don't make it. They never get off the ground and never make real money trading.
Over the years, I compiled my development notes into a repeatable process that I call my Profit Lab Method. That, my friend, is when I stopped losing money, and my trading life changed forever!
I want to show you my process so you can put it to use in your trading!
I'm here to tell you that you need to take it seriously and develop a successful trading system process.
Let me show you the steps I take to help ensure I'm building trading systems that work in the live market. Having a proper process will help you crush the curve-fitting problem so your systems will be more likely to work in the live market.
Let me show you how I build winning systems.
System Development Master Class
System Development Master Class (SDMC) is an online workshop designed to teach you EasyLanguage and show you how to create an unlimited number of trading systems that work on the live market.

Everything You Need To Build & Validate
Winning Trading Systems
The Builder Edition is an 8 week, hands-on experience on building and validating trading systems. Learn to build and validate strateiges like a pro.
Never Run Out Of Trading Ideas!
Ready to get to work? Great! Here we dive into the first two steps of the development process. First, define your key idea. Second, defining our testing environment. We also cover where to find a profitable idea and how to quickly test those ideas to see if they are robust or not. Finally, we learn to use Evernote, so we never forget an idea!
How To Determine If A Trading Idea Is Robust
The sanity check is a quick method for cutting through the clutter of unproductive ideas to focus your time on the best Key Ideas. Here we are going to stress test our Key Idea by varying the default values of critical parameters. Often these are input values to the trading model. We want to see if your Key Idea's performance will hold up with different values. If it does, this demonstrates robustness. A system that shows robustness is more likely to work on the live market.
Boost Profits By Making Your Strategy Adaptive To Different Market Conditions
Learn powerful and simple techniques to help make your Key Ideas adaptive to the overall market conditions. Discover a two-dimensional market filter that allows you to divide the market into four different states.
Avoid Curve Fitting With Our "Independent Testing Methodology"
This lesson teaches us how to test different entry methods, filters, and exits properly. We want to see if we can modify our baseline system into a more profitable trading model while reducing the chance of curve fitting.
Will It Work On The Live Market? How To Validate Your Strategy!
It's time to test our trading model on the out-of-sample data! Within this module, you're provided with three critical testing spreadsheets that we'll use to put our strategy through a gauntlet of tests. I also demonstrate an essential technique that could save you a lot of money, and I call it, Live Market Testing.

A Personal Note From Jeff Swanson
I think having a process to build trading systems is a must-have! Remember, every time you put on a trade, you're competing against brilliant and well-funded individuals and institutions. In such a competitive arena, you must be armed with the right knowledge, a reliable process, and the right tools to make a consistent profit.
The techniques in System Development Master Class are my propitiatory methods and tools that I use. I want to share them with you.
