Interesting pair ETN strategy that takes advantage of etn products that have built in time decay, by combining them together to capture that negative convexity, but with a built in hedge (or "Hedged Convexity Capture"). The strategy named in the book does have an periods of drawdown, so not for the faint of heart, but has a fantastic MAR ratio (it does have some risk, but there is definitely something in the performance numbers that are overall higher with less drawdowns than over systems we have evaluated). Interestingly it can accomplish what hedging with index options attempts to do, so rather unexpectedly may be of interest to active option traders (as well as ETF investors) - even though it does not actually use options. Minor issues are that it does use leveraged ETNs so you would have to be comfortable executing that strategy with your broker (but the solution then would be to use less money when starting out). This is a very interesting new way of looking at ETN strategy that has a very low correlation with equity markets (almost an alternative asset class in its own right).

I have to admit the idea is brilliant, pretty good at least. But these kind of "holy grail" investment strategies books always make me feel a bit suspicious about the author. Why on earth uncover such a great "source" of wealth when you can keep it to yourself and extract all the benefits??? Sorry, but I don't believe in philantrophy inside the financial markets field....

I typically think of trading pairs as symbols that you sell one to buy the other based on market timing. The strategy presented in the book does not make sense.

This book is incoherent and the writer's tone is off putting, plus the strategy is hairbrained, and really not worth your time. Don't waste a minute with this book, or the strategies inside. Just more of the same, "I've got the simple secret!" and we all know that's not how to make the market work for you.

This strategy can be volatile. From 4/1/ 2013 to 8/20/2013 this strategy returned - 13.3%. Does that mean this strategy no longer works? I guess time will tell. I am not an expert with regard to using ETF Replay, but believe the results are accurate.

Excellent approach created in a very clever manner. This book takes aim at the conventional trading & investing techniques, it is easy to read and understand. Thank you Mr. Long! I must also say that following up with Mr. Long s work not just with this outstanding book but his articles on Seeking Alpha gives me the edge in these very fragile markets and puts me a part from many other traders and investors out there!!! Again; Thank you Mate!!!

For me the book was perfect. I really like that it was a short book that got straight to the point. You mentioned that the reader needs to understand volatility, etc. So, I appreciated that you didn't cover that again, as most books do.

I was a little surprised at the price of the book and the number of pages, but I looked at, "the author must consider this information very valuable, thus it should be worth it." Thus, I didn't have a problem paying the price for the book. With that being said, after I read the "few" pages and what I got out of it, I considered the price worth it. You didn't waste my time telling me a lot of stuff I already knew. Time is money!

I think I read the book in a few hours. I understood everything you were saying straight through it. I didn't get lost anywhere. From my stand point, you gave me a strategy that is perfect for me and my life style. I don't have time to trade options, pick stocks, etc. (been there done that!) Thus, this two vehicle trade was perfect and re-balance once a week! Yea, that is down my alley. Also, I love the hedge with the XIV. The one thing I could never get a grasp on was the hedging and I really didn't want to short anything. I want to sleep at night.

Prior to this, I was investing in three ETF's, one that invested in S&P 500 stocks that paid dividends, one PIMCO fund that bought bonds and paid interest and a REIT ETF that paid dividends. I was more interested in income that could be reinvested instead of trying to time the market.

That was good until I read your book. Your strategy is even simpler and that's what I like, plus the potential returns are so much higher than my previous strategy.

Do me favor, keep me in the loop if you write any more books.

This is by far the best trading book I've ever read. When I stumbled across this book I was fed up with other trading books that didn't really give any real strategies just a lot of fluff. I was a skeptic considering the price and the length of the book. In hindsight this is what is so great about this book...it gave me strategies and a trading system I could put to use instantly...NO FLUFF!

The author claimed to create a trading system that could be run by his mother in his absences, he did exactly that! If you think you can't afford to invest in this book, think again you can't afford to miss out on this opportunity, time and money well spent.

Please keep me posted if you decide to reveal any of your other secrets...
