I have been using OT for several years and after joining Nirvana Club last year it was like turbo-charging the 65' Mustang. Not bad before, much faster now. Can't wait for next years Bash.

Since trading tends to be a solitary passion for most of us, learning the perspectives and insights of other traders has been very helpful. Also, the products are unique and have opened my thinking to new realms of trading. As a charter member of the club, I have been continually impressed at Nirvana's generosity in sharing new discoveries with its members. It is a privilege to be part of something so cutting edge. It is exciting to be a part of a select group sharing serious research and genuinely advancing the promise of automated trading. There is much hype about "intelligent" trading systems, neural nets, etc., but this Club, if anything, is the "anti-hype." I have seen serious new ideas advance, with usable beta software to match, that have challenged me to re-think my trading strategies in profound new ways. I have not regretted joining the Club for one minute.

The Nirvana Club benefits are enormous! I am generating PROFITS by downloading "Pattern Scans" and analyzing with ARMr2STK and ARMr4STK. I am finding excellent candidates!

The club has provided a place for myself and my peers to communicate and has opened up a whole world of sharing and camaraderie. Because of my many years in the club my trading knowledge and success has increased exponentially and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with other members.

Nirvana Club is the quintessential force in the market place that will someday enable the little guy to compete with the market for profits instead of losses. Outstanding, extraordinary, and cutting edge. Ed Downs is a true pioneer in the field of technical analysis and market research!

The Nirvana Club helps me by continually chasing the dream of automatic trading. That takes dedicated researchers who need to be paid for. I am willing to fund some of that for the privilege of being part of it. The products continue to improve over time. Omnitrader is a unique stock sorting tool for traders. No one does it quite like Omnitrader. Not tradestation nor Metastock. I was told Insight is very good because it incorporates group performance in picking stocks meeting customizable criteria. They want $500/month for Insight. Too rich for my blood.

I have been a member for 2 years. Access to the Club forum and other Members' input has helped me become a profitable trader. I used Club exclusive tools to build a strategy and take second place in Nirvana's first fully automated trading competition - RoboCon. There are club Members doing research on a daily basis and sharing it with the community. I truly believe these Club Members are some of the most brilliant minds in the electronic trading community. The original goals Ed Downs set out to achieve are becoming a reality and I am now a part of it. This is Awesome!

Each year trading with Nirvana becomes more exciting as new products and updates are introduced. The Nirvana Club has allowed me to gain better knowledge on the hows and whys of these great programs as well as meet some great people with similar interests.

If you are a serious trader or investor, it’s important to have both dynamic decision software and reliable support. Members of the Nirvana Club profit from both. Is it worth the cost of Membership? Ask any of the Members who remain active year after year - absolutely!

Nirvana has succeeded over the years because they genuinely want to make your trading experience easier and more profitable. They are not simply a "software" company. The Nirvana Club is a family of traders.

I’ve been in the Nirvana Club since its inception. It’s been a fun, exciting and fulfilling experience. Fun because of meeting and exchanging ideas with other Club members. Exciting because of receiving new Nirvana products at discounted prices and discovering all the new features Nirvana is developing. And fulfilling because I am using the software to make money in the markets.

It has been a pleasant and productive experience being a member of the Nirvana Club and I would encourage any one serious about trading and using the software to join and become a member. Nirvana Systems and ARM3 are exceptionally well designed to serve my needs as a trader.

The ARM products have been very accurate and promising, especially compared to regular Omnitrader. I'm excited about the signals that will be in Visualtrader and the advent of ARM3. I am very pleased with the fact that you all are looking at the features of other data and software vendors, as far as gleaning the best from those products is concerned, and integrating them into OT. GREAT MOVE! I've bought every product Nirvana has offered (since 2002) and I've made some good gains and I've lost quite a bit too. Right now I'm trying to refine what I do in my trading because I have a lot of rough spots. I rely almost solely on ARM2 R4.

OmniTrader shows great promise in streamlining the time and effort necessary to find good trade setups. I am continuing to expiriment with all of its capabilities and features to enhance my trading. The Nirvana Club represents the best possibility of reaching the goal of automated trading that I have found. Nirvana Systems has employed state of the art technology and creative approaches to solving the automated trading problem. Customer service is exemplary and the Forum has been very educational and promotes the effective sharing of trading ideas and experience.

The yearly bash is a useful and inspiring affair that I will likely never miss. Using things I have learned from the Club, I have made additions to my trading system and style. The Club exposes me to ideas that I would not normally see. Ed Downs’ vision is what led to my initial attraction to Nirvana. His many accomplishments in personnel selection, software design direction, and innovative ideas continue to impress me. I believe the long-term Nirvana goals will be achieved. Many benefits fall to customers who purchase Nirvana software, but Club members gain a great deal more by getting to know the staff and being exposed to the design process and the yearly "Bash". Club members also receive special software (ARM2) with upgrades and are in a position to more easily contribute ideas while benefiting from the ideas of other members.

Dear OmniTrader User: Have you been thinking about joining the Club but spending the money has held you back? I have been a member of the Club for almost 4 years and I sure am glad I joined. Club members are always ready to help and provide their assistance. As a member of the Club you have the opportunity to participate in the success and development of Omni Trader. You will be rewarded over and over again by the success of the Club Strategies. The money you will make will quickly cover the cost of joining. This year Nirvana decided to reward the Club members by giving them the new proprietary NSP strategy and the NSP enhanced Club Strategy. This is a $3000 gift that will put money directly into your pocket! I paper traded the NSP-31 Strategy for a while and I made my first real trade using it last week. So far I am doing well and I have not been stopped out yet. Do yourself a favor - Join today and find out what you are missing.

I've been in the securities industry for over 29 years and have spent a small fortune on analytical, charting and trading programs. None have matched the day-in, day-out utility of OmniTrader Pro and Visual Trader. For me, the Nirvana Club was the next logical step. The Club has allowed me to gain insight from other traders, provided an open forum where traders share ideas, and allowed me access to the newest innovations from Nirvana. It has been an excellent investment and one that I would recommend without hesitation to serious traders.

Club products have frequently sparked new directions in my investing. Subjects discussed in the Forums are often over my head; even so, I learn something each time I tune in. I have been a Nirvana customer for years. I have been a Club member since it's beginning. It is hard to remember how many times I have called for help to Ed or one of his staff. What is easy to remember is that each time, I was left with the feeling that they had given me their best.

I find the Nirvana Club to be useful because of the knowledge and talent the club members have. The members who are active teach and have strengths that I don't. There have been countless times that a Club Member's post gave me an answer I was looking for. The Nirvana Club allows you to explore ideas and get input from members that are from around the world. The biggest benefit of being a Nirvana Club member has been ARM3 for me. Each release continues to show what can be done with a talented team like the Nirvana Club members and Nirvana Staff.

The Club Forum is a great place to ask questions and get a very quick response. I have been a Club Member for close to one year and I wish I had joined sooner. The ARM software will greatly enhance your confidence and your trading ability. There is no other software developer that allows the customers to have such an active voice in the development of the software. The Club Forum provides a platform to voice all of your opinions and your ideas. This is a rapidly changing exciting product and I highly recommend the Club to all OmniTrader users.

I've been a Nirvana Club member since the beginning. Joining the Club has been one of the best "trading" decisions of my life. With the Club discounts, the shared help and ideas of other members, and the special attention Nirvana gives Club members, even after all this time I would join again without hesitation.

I am a Charter Club Member. I have looked at many other trading systems and software packages, but there is nothing even close to what OmniTrader and ARM have to offer. I can easily build trading systems that match my style and robotically trade them. I repeat, Nobody else has anything even close to this.

I have used Omni Trader since the Spring of 1996 and I am an original lifetime Club member. OmniTrader has been instrumental in providing the framework for a portfolio management approach that I use in my portfolio management profession. Nirvana’s dedication to continually improving OmniTrader and its usefulness in my business has made my lifetime Nirvana Club membership investment the best investment that I ever made!

I have only been trading for two years. The Forum has really accelerated my learning curve as there has been a wealth of ideas and approaches presented to research and experiment with. Until there is a truly automated trading platform (and in reading the recent development plan it seems that this is very likely) the Club has given me a great appreciation for developing a trading plan which is best suited to my risk tolerance.

The products have helped me to improve my trading confidence and decision-making ability. I especially enjoy and value learning how others trade and sharing ideas and information. Before Nirvana, I lacked the market insight and courage to trade/invest outside of my company's retirement plans. The late 90's bull run pretty much left me behind and I decided never again. Three years ago I took matters into my own hands and joined the online trading revolution. I was quickly challenged by the harsh realities of the stock market because I lacked knowledge, experience, and the right tools. Slightly discouraged but not defeated, I realized I needed an edge. I began to read the experiences of others who had survived the same mistakes I was making and I began to search for the best analysis tools to help me 'see' the market. I discovered OmniTrader during this search. Of all the technical analysis software applications I reviewed, OmniTrader offered me that edge I was looking for. Beyond the analysis abilities of OmniTrader, I was most impressed with the history of Nirvana the company, it's vision, and dedication to continued innovation. Realizing that stock trading could become a means for living, I decided to treat trading as a job and see it as my business startup. I wanted all the Nirvana resources available to me to help give me that all-important edge, so I joined the Nirvana Club and added the ARM2 technology to my toolbox. Nearly two years ago I left my well-paying corporate job and began trading for a living. Today, I continue to value and support Nirvana’s research and innovations and I am as committed as ever to their vision of the Ultimate Trading Machine and trading for a living.

I was introduced to Nirvana with their first piece of software called KLATU and then on to the Director series. I have been a proud member of the Nirvana Club since it's inception. Ed and his team are totally dedicated to developing what he calls the Ultimate Trading Machine. That's another story. Suffice to say that some members are now getting 100% hit rates by using OmniTrader with ARM2. In my opinion, ARM2 is an essential component of OmniTrader. It is like checking the DOW without checking the NASDAQ and the overall picture. It is an indispensable part of the software. Being a full Club member will allow you to participate in the Nirvana Club Forum. This is where club members have their say and discuss various trading strategies and procedures. One of the many things that I like about OmniTrader is the input and suggestions from members. This is my first “port of call” each day. Anything and everything is submitted here. The input is fabulous. I have been involved with Technical Analysis for many years and bought numerous pieces of software. I have shelves lined with them. This is the only one that has consistently worked for me. There is no “Holy Grail” but this is as close as it gets.

The Nirvana Club has help me tremendously. I consider myself some what technical, but some of the members are great and have help me on technical issues along with developing some great strategies. I trade real time and use rt-arm2r3 to reinforce trades that I am in. Would not trade without it.

The new platform provided by OmniTrader 2004 has taken my trading ability to a level I never thought I would experience. My confidence in the Trading Strategies I have available make for greater confidence in moving into a trade without the nagging worries I once experienced. In hindsight, I waited too long before joining. Membership to an exclusive Club is expected to confer special benefits and privileges—Nirvana Club is certainly no exception. As a Trader, this has been my best trade investment. The friendships, knowledge gained, and sense of belonging has been worth every cent. Do not make my mistake, take the step; you will not ever regret it.

Ed's objective of the Ultimate Trading Machine is clearly in sight as a reachable goal. While other systems have similar analytic systems, the individual pieces are not built with the view of incorporating them into an automated trading system. Nirvana Club provides the opportunity to influence system development based on your trading methods, characteristics, and patterns. Ed ensures that any work done will be compatible with the ultimate objective. Forum discussions with active traders, helps keep me open to new ideas and trading tactics and theories.

I have used many different charting and trading tools since I stated back in 1998 when the big tech boom happened, I like other investors quickly learned after it was over that trading was not easy, in search of technical trading tools in helping my profit potential (I tried many) I found Ed Downs and his software, it was effective and very customisable compared to others back then and still now. At this moment in time I am blown away by what they are doing with there updated software and new tools, they just keep getting better and better. I am Nirvana Systems for life!! Thanks to all at Nirvana Systems, from the support all the way to the top.

I have been a Nirvana Systems customer for approximately 13 years, which has been a fun, exciting, and an increasingly profitable journey. Let me explain. If you have been around the markets for any length of time, you have to be aware that no system works forever. Enter the Nirvana Club! With its artificial intelligence in the form of neural networks and genetic algorithms, new trading systems continually come on line each year. It has been fun be a part of this ever evolving journey. The exciting part is that each new Nirvana Club system seems to be more profitable than its predecessor! I mean, "We are in this business to make money, right?" This year the Nirvana Club introduced NSP-31. Its performance has been nothing short of phenomenal. This one system alone has more than repaid the price of admission in just a few short months. Still I would be remiss if I did not mention the extraordinary synergy that exists among club members. There are many trading forums on the Internet. I don't think a single one can compare to the synergy found in the Nirvana Club forum. It is simply not possible to put a price on the value of the exchange of trading ideas, development of new trading systems, and the sharing of membership knowledge, all of which one gains from club membership. If you have even the slightest interest in becoming a Nirvana Club member, I urge you to leave no stone unturned in your investigation. If you perform your due diligence properly, my guess is that you will become a member like I and so many others did. I have been a profitable, full time trader for four years now. A large part of this success I owe to Nirvana Systems.If I can help you in any way in making your decision, please feel free to call any time.

As a scientist, I’m very skeptical of investment advisors and particularly stock scanning services that give blind buy/sell signals without any explanation of how the signals are derived. The folks at Nirvana are clearly fellow researchers, seeking to identify and use logical, reproducible, mathematical truths to achieve success by supporting the free exchange of ideas and openly sharing knowledge.

Belonging to the Nirvana Club has been a most rewarding experience. I try to attend the Bash every year. I have made many friends in the club. We always try to help each other every year. While I learn a great deal from the intensely educational aspect of the Nirvana's lecture presentations, I always learn a lot from the Club members who sit beside me at the lectures. The Club experience gets better every year I have remained a member. I highly recommend joining. A member's buy in cost is always returned much sooner that one would ever expect.

OmniTrader with ARM3 is in a league of it's own. It has to be one of the easiest powerhouse trading tools you can use. Alone, it's a fantastic prospecting tool, but with Nirvana continually pushing the envelope of technology and trading performance it puts out, it's truly second to none.

Being able to automatically generate signals on my own with OmniTrader has allowed me to think for myself rather than relying on someone else. Nirvana Systems is always on the cutting edge providing innovative products and services. With the Nirvana Club and Forums, they are in constant communication with their customers, providing assistance as needed and obtaining feedback for continuous improvement.

Since joining the Club I have learnt a great deal about trading, especially with watching the Bash 2003 videos and subsequently purchasing the Hedge & Fulcrum training method CDs. One of the main lessons learnt is the fact that I now trade with a more mechanical approach and less emotion, which I feel is key to the long term success of any trader. I have been a Club Member for approx. 1 year now and as an owner of a small business in the UK, I am so impressed with the way you embrace your customers and provide such excellent service. The Club idea works so well for both club members and Nirvana in the development of OT & VT, and it really does feel as if we are a club and not just a customer for you to sell products to.
