Pros: No BS or nonsense. A trading education that gives you exactly what you need to be successful, from a battle tested and proven professional systems developer, that gives you exactly what you need.
Cons: A one day live seminar for nearly $2650 is not cheap. Also, if you are not well capitalized, then Kevin's systematic style of trading is not going to work for you. You need to be well capitalized to by a systematic trader.

A Review Of Kevin J. Davey And KJ Trading Systems

KJ Trading SystemsA lot of traders have not heard of Kevin Davey, or his trading systems. But, quite simply, Kevin J. Davey is one of the best traders that you have probably never heard of before. In fact, this nerdy looking guy from Cleveland is a winner of the World Cup Championship of Futures Trading. What is a champion futures trader? Every year going back to the 1980’s, a brokerage in Chicago has sponsored an event called the Robbins World Cup Of Trading. Its a big deal. All trades are verified and executed directly at Robbins Trading Company. These world cup events have launched the Robbins World Cupmoney management careers of some of trading’s biggest super stars. Winning the event is not easy. You need to put up real money and trade against the best in the world, under public scrutiny, for an entire year. Kevin J. Davey won the event 2006 with a return of 107%.

In addition to winning the event in 2006, he placed 2nd in 2005 with a return of 148%, and again placed 2nd in 2007 with a return of 112%. These are some serious numbers to ponder. Keep in mind that during the years that Kevin was competing, Robbins Trading Company charged over $20 per round turn, per trade.

In addition to winning trading contests with real money, Kevin has also published an award winning book on successful trading. IBuilding Winning Algorithmic Trading Systems Book have a copy of the book, and it is as valuable as a 300 year-old Bible on Easter Sunday. Truly, this book is packed full of  trading wisdom and trading systems that just work. If you dont own it-buy it. Do it now. Over the years, my bookshelf has been filled with thousands of dollars worth of trading books, most are useless garbage. However, a few are so good that I keep them right above my trading screen. They are a sort of totem to remind me of how champion traders conduct their business.

Kevin also has a multitude of published papers, reviews from peers, and general accomplishments. Over the years he has given many interviews, continues to stay relevant and his trading ideas have remained robust and resilient. If you troll

Thanks Michael – yes algo/automated trading is not for everyone, and certainly not for new traders. I would say my course is best for intermediate to advanced traders – people looking for advanced trading knowledge. Thanks for the comment!

Even though I run my own trading site, there is always room to learn more. I am a more of a discretionary trader, but I bought Kevin’s book myself and I’m very impressed with his teaching style and methodology. It’s inspired me to move my trading account to Trade Station and I’m working on automating, back testing and improving some of my own strategies using Kevin’s process as a result.

No single trader has all the answers, but Kevin’s book, and even recently speaking with Kevin on the phone, has expanded my way of thinking about approaching these markets.

Thanks Jasen – It was great talking to you, too. It is always a pleasure to talk to a trader who knows his stuff!

I have Kevin’s book sitting on my desk a few feet from me and it is superb. Although I still am a manual trader, when the time comes that I opt for some automation, Kevin will be the person to approach for help. I think that Kevin would be a brilliant person to be on your mentor’s page, Emmett.

Thanks for the kind words, Stefan! Comments like yours make me glad I wrote my book!!!! I hope you decide to review my book on Amazon, too! THANKS

Do you have trading results for the three strategies that
You offer in your course ,and why don’t you start a trading
Room we need real trades like you.

Kevin
Guest

Sure, just e-mail me and I can give you performance stats. But the real value in what I teach is that I teach you how to develop strategies yourself. There is a lot of power in taking charge of your trading. As for trading room, I usually hold for days or weeks. Any trading room would be REALLY boring…

Hi Kevin

Thanks

Hi Sam – Excellent comment! Most people who have taken the class are what I’d call intermediate to advanced traders. They know what has to be done, they just are unsure of what exactly to do, and how to do it. Building a successful trading strategy is about 10x more difficult than most brokers and trading software providers say it is. So, my course teaches you a lot of the proper techniques. But it alone will not make you successful. After the workshop, students have to work hard to create their own strategies, and have my personal support for 6… Read more »

Kevin,
Out of curiosity, does your course cover what is in the book? I.e. could I buy your book, study and then take your course to supplement the book?

Kevin
Guest
Hi Jonathan – The course encompasses the book, but goes well beyond it. Some people have read the book before, some haven;t, so it is not necessary. The big thing that people tell me they like (in order of priority) is 1) the e-mail support directly from me after the course, 2) the ability to be part of the Strategy Factory Club (which allows members to swap high performing strategies) and 3) the 3 strategies I give as part of the workshop (all of which I trade myself). But the course is not cheap, and one way to see if… Read more »

When you say you provide 3 strategies you give as part of the workshop, what form are they in? A step by step procedure on paper? A simple spreadsheet to help automate the trading, or a full app that gets the data from Yahoo (or whomever) for helping you select potential trades or something else?

Kevin Davey
Guest

Thanks for the question. I provide the Tradestation code for the 3 strategies, and also the rules in plain English. You could then put it in any trading platform you want. I’d recommend Tradestation for both developing and automated trading. There is a reason they have been around so long…

Jonathan
Guest

Thanks for the reply! I’m still researching strategies and consuming as much free info as I can find before I drop too much cash in one place… I’ll pick up your book first.

Kevin
Guest

Smart idea! Don’t pay for anything, from anyone, until you are pretty sure you’ve gone as far as you can go on your own. And then, make sure to research whoever you are buying from VERY carefully…

I just don’t understand how a one day seminar can be enough information to be a successful trader??? its allot of information and there’s nothing like real live trading.

You mentioned the need of being well capitalized. Hois much is enough?

Kevin
Guest

Hi Tom –

It really depends on your risk tolerance and how many strategies you want to trade. If you only have $5,000 to start with, for example, futures probably is not a good place to begin. If you have 10x that, though, depending on your strategies that you plan to trade, that might be an acceptable amount. There is no one size fits all answer to this question, unfortunately.

Kevin, what about trading futures options? Those are a lot cheaper. Thank you.

I have bought Kevin’s book. I find it is a gem! I experience it as a no bullshit step-by-step process on how to create mechanical trading systems that can work in the future. I also took up Kevin’s course. I intend to properly develop my trading systems, and I believe Kevin can guide me. The course fee of 2,650 was a no-brainer for me: either I invest in myself (sign up for Kevin’s course), or the markets are going to take it from me anyway. So far, my experience of Kevin is he is honest, smart, helpful and no bullshit.

There are very few people in this industry that are honest and Kevin is one of them. Next to the solid process of testing systems, the six month email support is invaluable if you plan to take it serious and go live with your developed systems.

Hi Chak –

I hope you enjoy the book! If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me. As everyone will tell you, I try to be very accessible to people.

Good Luck in your trading!

Kevin
