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.

With OmniTrader, I am on the right side of the trade more often than not. The trendline alerts set in VisualTrader are great for staying on top of trend changes. I have attended that last two Bashes and had a great time and met some really great people. I am really impressed with the progress and feel that Nirvana is getting close to the Ultimate Trading Machine!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When one trades for a living, it is very easy to become relatively narrow in approach to the markets. It is my opinion that everyone must grow professionally to continue to be successful. The Nirvana Club has exposed me to new strategies and approaches as well as to a group of exceptional traders. It would be difficult to quantify the monetary benefit of the Club as I daily tweak the tools (OmniTrader and VisualTrader) and employ new ideas I have learned from the Club. The Nirvana Club remains my single best resource for trading success. The Nirvana Club provides members with a Forum to discuss trading needs, software applications, and personal trading results (Forums); an opportunity to review products in development (Beta Tests) and make suggestions/recommendations; and a vast and diverse group of other members to provide suggestions and solutions. Of course, ultimately, the Club is focused on the ultimate trading solution. Together, these resources make the subscription to the Club one of the best values I have found. I have recommended Nirvana Club to many of my personal friends who wish to go to the next level in trading success.

Dear Ed, I am very happy with the results I have been getting from the NSP-31 NN strategy. My portfolio which contained the NSP-31 trades has been my most successful to date. Out of seven trades, six have made money, netting 3% or more per trade. I am looking forward to expanding my NSP-31 trading into some other portfolios. Thanks, Nirvana, for providing me with the tools I need to be a happy and successful trader. Not only is the Nirvana software useful in making money, but it is a lot of fun too!

Your commitment to the trading goals of the company and club are unequaled. The technical support is timely and support consultants are always willing to go the extra mile to solve problems or answer questions on product use. Nirvana's educational material is well planned and produced.

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.

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 first purchased software from Nirvana in 2003 and I have been extremely impressed with the commitment and help shown to me by the Nirvana staff. The OmniTrader software package does a very thorough job of analyzing the stock market. But, it takes a lot more than just good software to make it in the stock market. It takes a personal drive to understand and evaluate the many factors involved with the personality of the market. The information conveyed by Nirvana and the Club members is outstanding. I have been a member of the Nirvana Club, since I first purchased the OmniTrader Software. The club is unique element supporting the entire experience. I have learned so much just interacting with other club members on the forum. I have also developed acquaintenances with other like minded traders. The ability to interact with other traders and to discuss ideas and other developments is one of the most important elements of the Nirvana package. I have attended a series of seminars and the yearly "Bash", where other traders gather and sit through two concentrated days of educational learning experience. The stock market is like any other professional experience where it is important to maintain a continuing education. In my opinion, the OmniTrader software is the most powerful software on the market today. The charting, indicators and developed systems are not only powerful but they are "open ended" allowing each trader to adjust and/or modify the system to obtain a profitable conclusion. The help coming from Nirvana has been outstanding. Last but not least, Nirvana developed a proprietary system known as “NSP-31.” My trades in the last month have shown a healthy 5.7% growth, which if considered annually would be in excess of 70%. Probably the most important development has been the ability to test and evaluate past time periods to see how a slight change can modify the end results. This software is so powerful and it's all contained on my personal computer. I don't have to depend upon a trading service or broker to suggest a trade without my capability to test it and to make my own decisions. This software has given me the power to do just that. Plus, with Nirvana and members supporting me, I can feel a degree of comfort in my decisions.

Since NSP-31 started I have entered every trade. This is a remarkably accurate system, especially for Option trading, and I am up a good amount of money off these trades to date. My trade on CSCO was a 74% gainer. USP was another nice profitable trade. My BUD option is already up $500! I benefit from the Nirvana Club's forums; from programming ideas to learning how other member/traders react to market conditions. Interacting within this venue is just plain fun. I have paid for my Nirvana Club membership two times over from savings on software and NSP-31 trades. NSP-31 alone is worth whatever the membership costs. I have been trading the signals generated for a couple months and made money on every trade. Consequently, I would highly recommend the Nirvana Club to any investor or trader.

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 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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Kevin Knox

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.

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 have been a member of the Nirvana family for 2 years. I contemplated joining the Nirvana Club after starting with OmniTrader. This year, I finally crossed over and haven't looked back. During this time, the many great trading developments issued by my new “family” have propelled me along the learning curve. My development as a trader has gone supersonic as a result of the many things the Club has to offer and my goal of creating another career for myself is now within reach. I wish I would have joined the Club sooner. Please continue to amaze me and other Club members with the brilliant ideas your Nirvana family brings us.

“I have been around since late 1992, the early days of “The Director”, a Metastock add-in. I marvel at the number of light years both OmniTrader and the Nirvana Club have traveled since those days. Today I am profitably trading ARM 3 strategies. I am convinced that the next few years in the Nirvana Club will bring even more amazing advances that will translate to higher profits.”
