From looking at their sales pitch, I can tell you I wouldn't buy it. You end up risking $2 to make $1 because the stop loss is twice as much (up to four times as much) as the take profit setpoint. I asked them about it; they replied that it works best for them that way. But the math here is really simple: at a 2:1 risk to reward ratio, whatever the accuracy of the system is, you have to divide it in half. So if it's 80% accurate, your long-term return is going to be 40% i.e., you're going to lose overall 60% of your investment. If you had a system that had 4:1 reward to risk ratio, i.e., your stop loss is one-fourth of your take profit, you would only have to be right 25% of the time to break even. Since you can enter the market randomly and be right 50% of the time, money management is the key here. Van Tharp has a good home study course that covers this.
