  16. 16. © 2009 / RDS Trader LLC/ All Rights Reserved<br />IV. Risk Disclaimer<br />Trading Forexcontracts may not be suitable for all investors. You may lose a substantial amount of money in a very short period of time. The amount you may lose is potentially unlimited and can exceed the amount you originally deposit. This is because trading is highly leveraged, with a relatively small amount of money used to establish a position in assets having a much greater value. If you are uncomfortable with this level of risk, you should not trade these contracts. <br />This material is for educational purposes only and is not intended for you to use in place of your own investing decisions.<br />5<br />

  28. 28. XV. RDS Trader Strategy<br />The Rotating Directional System™ (RDS) is a support and resistance strategy developed by Michael Radkay. After appropriate RDS risk management parameters have been analyzed for the market of choice, levels of participation are developed from recent market volatility, average momentum and retracement zones. As prices reach a specific level objective, new rotation significance is placed on this area. This continues to give the trader an overall updated directional sense of what can be expected for upcoming price action. The levels also post guidelines for price follow through and/or reversal. <br />Before entering each trade we put the position of the market up against our 4 rule test, that is revealed in our Independent Study and our Master Programs.<br /> © 2009 / RDS Trader LLC/ All Rights Reserved<br />18<br />
