• Want a trading strategy that allows you to make good money and even great money regardless of market direction? A Bull, Bear or Sideways Market?

  • Want to learn how to capitalize on the huge trading advantages that come when market volatility raises its ugly head and REGARDLESS OF MARKET DIRECTION?

  • Want a trading strategy that can help mitigate overall market risk?

  • Want a trading strategy that can make money on a trade in 5 different ways?


  • Are you using “Offense & Defense” in your trading? 

This is exactly what the “Pairs Trading for Offense & Defense – A Market Neutral Trading Workshop” will provide you; a step-by-step trading course on how to successfully use a  “Pairs Trade or Spread Trade” on [Stocks, ETFs, and Futures] to totally change the trading game in your favor during high volatility markets regardless of market direction. 

Trading pairs or spreads can help mitigate overall market risk. By simultaneously taking opposite positions on related securities, can allow you to reduce exposure to broader market movements. This is particularly useful in volatile markets, where sudden price swings can lead to significant losses.

In other words, a Pairs Trade is equally likely to profit whether the market you trade goes [up, down, or sideways] it doesn’t matter. 

This is a systematic approach for trading markets with a higher degree of market uncertainty and volatility and I’ll teach you how to do these trades using synthetic options!

This workshop will provide you with all the support you need, and you can have all your questions answered. 

You can then try out this new strategy and then ask even more questions if needed.

This workshop is personally taught by Larry Gaines along with live and personal support both during and after the workshop. (Will be recorded)

Just sending a quick note of thanks that you could maybe pass along to Larry for all of his fabulous teaching through the years. I truly have enjoyed learning from him and the other traders in the trading room every day. I don’t think there is a better trader in the world when it comes to spreads and other ways to do trades than Larry Gaines.
You and your ideas, tools, teachings are just terrific Larry. Thank you so much.
Thank you. You are a great teacher!

PCT Cycle Reversal Momentum Indicator

 PCT Cycle Reversal Momentum Indicatoris a Percentage Range Momentum Indicator. It measures overbought & oversold levels & signals in advance a potential market reversal, one to two periods in advance. 

This indicator has an upper & lower study. The upper study gives a Cycle High Reversal Signal with a Down Arrow & an Up Arrow for a Cycle Low Reversal. 

The lower study signals: (1) the overbought & oversold condition, (2) a cycle reversal, (3) +/- price momentum, PCT1 fast and PCT2 slow to confirm momentum direction. 

Used across any time interval. Used for Pairs Trading/Spread, Swing Trades & Day Trades.

Larry, I have spent many thousands of $$$ on expensive XXXX indicators the past few years. Now, I only use the PCT tool set, strategies, and your continued guidance to earn profits from the markets. Many thanks.
Larry, your custom indicators, and course are well worth the cost, it is invaluable to me for determining directions, and a very conservative and patient, rules-based approach to trading.

Available for ThinkorSwim® & TradeStation® & TradingView®.

Larry, I made $800 with your reversal indicator on Friday on es..

4 Months PCT Club Membership

If you’d like Larry’s hand-picked high probability trade setups texted and emailed right to you, then you’ll want Course Package II, where you’ll receive everything in Package I above PLUS the Alert Service Plus as outlined below.

Hey Folks, I am loving my subscription to the Trade Club and the Alert Services. I paid for it in the first week. I guess I am now a "Scholarship Student"? It is great to start and finish the market day with Larry, put on the trades, not be glued to the screen all day, go do real life stuff, check in a time or two and be there for the close. I am retired, the market is my main hobby, and this is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! I am learning like a sponge every day! Kind regards,
About Larry's Alert service. I subscribe to 4 different alert services and I’m very selective on which trades I take except for Larry's trade alerts. I take all of Larry's. I trust his experience and market understanding.
This is a great service and value to enhance your trading. I've been in Larry's service for 2 months now and have had wonderful results. 85% of my option trades have been winners!
I completely agree with David. I have been with Larry’s service for almost 1 year. Paid more than the tuition. The practical options knowledge & your daily follow-up on each alert is excellent. Thxs a lot.

This will be like you have your very own research department and professional trading mentor but at a minuscule fraction of the cost.

This frees up your time to focus on your career, count your money, or simply enjoy life.

No more manually combing through thousands of charts and indexes.

No more debilitating confusion over the best option strategy to use.

No more agonizing over the best time frame and trade setup.

Because it’s all done for you.

And nothing would make me any happier than for you to be able to select your own trades, just like I do when I stop.

For example, you’ll see why I chose the trade based on the chart pattern. 

And you’ll see why I chose the option strategy. 

You’ll get an “After the Close” Educational Video outlining the trade so you can gain knowledge from implementing the Alert trades.  

Research shows that we learn the most from experience, not just study

By combining the two, you’re going to take your trading to an entirely new level

Plus, you’re also going to get an entire 4 months in my Power Cycle Trading Club at no additional cost

This will give you an opportunity to get your questions answered daily

The trade set-up alert list of stocks and ETFs is based on a Breakout Trade Scanning Process I designed specifically to find high winning probability breakout setups early in a cycle [before the breakout] without having you manually comb through thousands of charts and indexes? 

It’s a Scanning Process that:

  • Scans hundreds of stocks to identify High Probability Breakout set-ups, based on “The Volatility Compression Squeeze” chart pattern and momentum flows
  • Scans the Daily, Weekly & Monthly Time Frame for the “Volatility Compression Squeeze” chart pattern
  • Identifies probable Breakout Direction based on Price Momentum Flows
  • Validates a trade breakout strength, based on Momentum Flows, across multiple time frames, using a “Multi Time Frame Squeeze Alert Indicator”
  • Scans to quickly identify and establish a watch list of these powerful Breakout Set-ups for Swing Trades & Long-Term Trend Trades in order to act quickly to catch the Breakout before it Breaks out
  • Builds a list of securities that have just broken out of a Volatility Compression Squeeze…provides potential momentum trades that are just gaining momentum
  • The list is then screened to pick the best breakout set-ups based on Chart Pattern, Fibonacci Support & Resistance, Moving Average Support & Resistance, and Trend Lines

Here’s a few sample Alerts to see how they work…

I know it’s a lot, but it’s what you’ll need to know to become successful Trading Pairs.

Plus, all this information will be broken into easy to understand live and follow up training with a video, and a paper manual you can download, for those of you, like me, who still like pen and paper!

I’ll take you step by step through the course and am there to support you as you master this Pairs Trading Strategy.

Why would you listen to me?

Over the past three decades, I’ve been actively trading in the financial securities markets.

Trading is my passion. I knew this in my twenties, and this is the career path I chose to pursue. 

Eventually, as Executive Vice President of one of the largest international oil trading companies in the world, I managed the international trading desk where we traded and managed billions of dollars worth of oil, foreign exchange and financial market derivatives

My trading group was one of the first to trade over the counter options on cargoes of foreign crude oil and traded millions of barrels of these crude oil option contracts. 

I’ve been involved with a number of hedge funds on a consulting basis and set up an over-the-counter crude oil options brokerage desk for the world’s largest privately-owned oil Brokerage Company.  

I have a fascination for all things trading, so I have studied hundreds of trading systems and models and have used just about every option strategy known.

And trading is my passion…

Just to let you know, I’ve spent a lot of money on courses, and yours are the best I have signed up for. In fact, had I been lucky enough to just start out with you, I would not of needed the others.

Have questions? You’ll probably find the answer below.

If not, please email


Larry's courses are well worth your time. He’s the Matt Damon in "Good Will Hunting". He looks at the numbers on the blackboard (options) that no one can figure out - and he just "sees it"!! Take that as a compliment!
Larry, you are a natural at mixing and matching various option strategies. Your mind’s working amazes me.

Frequently Asked Questions

What If I can’t make the Live Workshop Dates?

This entire course will be recorded and avaialble to watch whenever you choose, as many times as you choose, indefinitely.  You’ll find the video recordings and PDF’s in your personal PCT Account within a few days.  A Live Q&A will also be held at a later scheduled date to give you the opportunity for any follow-up questions you may have.

I think I purchased this Course before

You may have purchased a previous course on the same strategy, but each Live course created will be a new updated version and will hold exclusive information for this particulary Workshop.  While the basic strategies are timeless, Larry provides content relevant to current market environments at any given time.  Many of our customers take our courses every time they are offered to help find new opportunites. 

Do  I  have to pay monthly to keep my Power Course?

No, your Course is yours indefinitely with a one-time fee. A Personal PCT Account will be created for you after purchase in which you will be able to access your Power Course & Bonuses anytime, 24-7.

Frequently Asked Questions - Alert Service

Will thousands of other traders be getting these same trade ideas, making them impossible to execute at the suggested prices? (This happens with most trade alert services.)

No. Most of you know I enjoy working with a small tribe, but I also promise to limit the number of subscribers to this service. 

Will I get a text, an email, or both?

Yes, Larry will send out a text alert to the cell phone number provided [within minutes] and an email will be sent within 30 minutes. 

Can I wait to activate my Alert Membership?
