                           Some Pointers for Traders of the QQQQ.

wpe1E.jpg (59723 bytes)

           Professionals have dominated, controlled and - if they used the TigerSoft charts -
    steadily profited from the short-term swings of the QQQQ, Nasdaq-100.  

            The QQQQ is still down more than 50% from its 2000 high, so with the DJI and SP-500
    making new highs, professionals know there are a lot of public buyers of tech stocks that seem
    historically cheap.

            The QQQQ can be traded like any stock or ETF.  But it also has options which are traded
    on teh CBOE.  And there are ETFs which give traders lots of leverage if they like.

                                  Exchange-Traded Funds Related To NASDAQ-100
                                          Index or Fund      Beta      Median Daily Volume
                                          --------------       -------- ----------------------
                                          NDX -NASDAQ-100
                                         QQQQ                 1.02       109,192,650       Long NDX
                                         QLD    2xNDX     2.25              448.700        Long Two NDX
                                         PSQ                    -1.08                79,250        Short NDX
                                         QID    2xNDX    -2.07          2,208,600         Short Two NDX

                                 Using Peerless and TigerSoft To Trade The QQQQ

             Peerless has been on a major Buy except for a month after May 5th, 2006 and for the eight
    weeks before March 5th this year.  The same trading system has been our #1 system throughout
    this period.  You can see its Buy and Sell signals from the arrows shown below. 

            I have suggesed to subscribers and to most index traders that, unless they are very skilled,
   they stick to the long (Buy) side, and avoid the Short side.  When the TigerSoft chart of the QQQQ
   gives a red Buy signal, Buy the QQQQ, or a vehicle like the QQQQ, such as its calls.   When it gives
   a red Sell down-arrow, take profits, but do not sell short. or buy QQQQ puts, unless it is to hedge. 
   Heed the time-tested Peerless major signals. 

         Trading only on the long-side, Buying on a red Up-arrow from the TigerSoft chart
    of the QQQQ and selling the position on the next red Down-arrow, would have gained the
    trader, +36.9% from  August 8th, 2006 to July 6th, 2007.  Of course, you can easily margin
    or leverage these positions so that each gain or loss is 2 or 3 times greater.  That is why professinals
    love the QQQQ.  Here are the signals trades, as shown by the Tiger Soft charts.  Note that
    we assume we start with $10,000, that each trade costs $40 in commission and slippage. And
    that we trade at the next day's opening.

            +36.9% Gain in 11 Months Using QQQQ without Shorting It.
                      (Trading the QLD would have hgained you 73.8% in 11 months.)

                       Peerless-Sell S9 on 1/5/2007  QQQQ = 43.85
                       Instead of using the TigerSoft signals on the QQQQ,
                       it would have been better to use the Peerless system.

                      Peerless-NASD-Buy B8 on 3/5/2007  QQQQ = 42.15

              6/27/2007     47.52       7/5/2007     48.71    +2.5%             13,685

              Trading all the QQQQ's Automatic Signals on the long-side would have brought a +36.9%
              in this 11-month period.  There were 15 winning trades and 1 losing trade.
              The biggest paper loss - also shown in the TigerSoft display 0 would have been -0.3%.

                  There Are Times When A Breakout Should Stop
               You From Using A Red Buy or Sell.

             I have circled breakouts in the charts back to 2003.  You can see that it would
       be better not to trade immediately against a breakout or breakdown.  Look at these
       charts to get a better idea.  Our manuals discuss this more fully.

                  2006 - QQQQ Signals' Gain = +34.8% Using Buy, Sells and Short Sales.

Jokes Women and "Liberated Men" Will Like.

#1 -
A man and his wife were having some problems at home
        and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly,
        the man realized that the next day, the would need his
        wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.

        Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE),
        he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM"
        He left it where he knew she would find it.

        The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was
        9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go
        and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a
        piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

 #2 -
A woman walks into a bar, sits down and orders a drink. Next to her sits a
           man wearing a cowboy hat, western shirt, cowboy boots, and jeans with a big silver
           rodeo buckle. The woman looks at him and asks, "Are you a real cowboy?"

           He replies that he's spent most of his life bustin' broncos, mending fences and
           rounding up cattle so, yes, you can say he is a real cowboy. He then asks her,
           "So what are you?"

          She replies, "I'm a lesbian. I spend most of my time thinking about women.
          When I'm rating, working, washing or sleeping, all I think about is women."
          She finishes her drink and leaves.

          Soon a young couple comes in and orders drinks. The woman notices the
          cowboy and asks him, "Are you a real cowboy?" He ponders the question
          and replies, "I used to think so but I just found out I'm a lesbian."

#3    A male driver is pulled over by a cop and the following conversation
         takes place:

                    Man: What's the problem officer?
                    Cop: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone.
                    Man: No sir, I was going 65.
                    Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80.
                    (Man gives his wife a dirty look.)
                    Cop: I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light.
                    Man: Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light!
                    Wife: Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks.
                    (Man gives his wife a dirty look.)
                    Cop: I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt.
                    Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car.
                   Wife: Oh Harry, you never wear your seat belt.

                    Man: Shut your mouth, woman!

                   Cop: Ma'am, does your husband always talk to you this way?

                   Wife: No, only when he's drunk.

One day, three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large raging, violent river.
        They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so.

        The first man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength to cross this
        river." Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across
        the river in about two hours, after almost drowning a couple of times.

         Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength ..
         and the tools to cross this river." Poof! God gave him a rowboat and he was able to
         row across the river in about an hour, after almost capsizing the boat a couple of times.

         The third man had seen how this worked out for the other two, so he also prayed to
         God saying, "Please God, give me the strength and the tools...and the intelligence...
         to cross this river." And poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map,
         hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, then walked across the bridge.
