The predicted Hi/lows are no better than pivot points. It does give some reassurance when the predicted hi/lows correlate with pivots. The Neural Index is fairly useful but I think it is probably just derived the direction of a moving average.

I had something very interesting happen last night. I opened VP and it was giving me the readings for today before I even did a Data Update... Note sure why, but once I did the Data Update it gave me the same predictions!!! So Who knows, im not a computer programmer so it seems weird to me.

There is absolutely NO Substitute for experience and understanding of market action, money management and most importantly your own Psychology. Vantage POint is simply something I glance at in the evenings, and I just quickly look at the Neural Index. This is akin to only going long or short if markets are above/below the 50SMA... So not secrets here. It does give me a slight boost in confidence if it confirming my own analysis, but only a slight boost. I don't think it's worth $3500. Maybe $250? I imagine Market Technologies makes a flippin killing off of this software. Also the two books that come with it are sub par at best. I got very little out of them on how to analyze the market using Intermarket Analysis other than to follow the software.

On another note Intermarket Analysis DOES Work and is very worth it to look into. Save your $3500, get a mini account, and use proper risk management risking no more than 2% a trade and you will have gained more experience and understanding if you lose it all then slapping it on the table for the Market Technologies team to get rich off of.

I used to truly think there was something to Vantage Point but until I go to their head office and they show me exactly how it works and I find that there's something ACTUALLY to it, I say it's not worth the $3500.

MABenn,

I read elsewhere that you can 'turn off' the intermarket analysis and get the same results. Its also possible that if the data wasnt ready when you did your download that you actually got yesterdays 'results' again instead of todays. Are you sure that isnt what happened?

By the way the NI is just an average of previous days prices, I was able to almost completely replicate the NI using excel and with NO reference to other markets. So even if it were of use youre paying 3k for something you could do on a calculator.

I did read the post, tell me why I'd download and run an exe file from someone who has just made their first post on T2W?
