:  Steve's trading methodology is fantastic. Having read the book, completed a ten workshop program and sitting down with him one on one, I would encourage anyone who feels they need better results on managing their investments to sign on for all of the above. Whether you are a novice or somewhat seasoned this disciplined process is a no-brainer. Steve gives you all of the guidelines to effectively select and manage your portfolio. Best of all his patience and grounded nature instills confidence. Mark Stratton

: The Workshop series is very interesting from beginning to end. You can definitely read the book and get most of the same information, but the workshops help to put it all together, and to apply the theory in a practical way. The best part is that you have complete control. I would recommend the workshop to anybody who wants to take full control and responsibility of their finances. Evangelos Tambassis

: The web workshops tie it all together, and are an absolute bargain--- well worth the time and small expense... learn from a master investor, real time, from the comfort of your own home or office. Roger Ingram

: I've enjoyed your informative workshops. They provide additional insight into the principles identified in your book. Your philosophy and principled, straightforward way of investing is a breath of fresh air. Adam Dabek  

: I believe that anyone who is interested in managing his own money will benefit from personal sessions with Steve. He’s enthusiastic and patient, and he works too cheap. It almost seems like he’s on a mission to save investors from the financial industry. Doug Light

: Your material, your emphasis on QDI and profit taking have helped me tremendoulsy over the last six months of investing. I have about 10 years until retirement and your instruction on asset allocation and income investing, and working capital growth have given me the confidence that I will be able to manage my program to produce all of the retirement income I'll need. Adam Dabek 

: I want to thank you for your efforts to dispel some erroneous concepts concerning investing in stocks for growth and retirement. I have taken several courses (Techni-Trader and Protitunity), but yours is the best and has shown results right out of the box. Thank you. You have given me a way to grow my Working Capital and live off my dividends without the stess of speculation and short term trading. Marv Sherman

MCIM Self Directed 401k & IRA Programs

Take a free tour of a professional investment managers' private SEP IRA program during eight years surrounding the financial crisis:


In developing the investment plan, personal financial goals, objectives, time frames, and future income requirements should all be considered. A first step would be to assure that small portfolios (under $50,000) are at least 50% income focused.

At the $100,000 level, between 30% and 40% income focused is fine, but above age 50, the income focus allocation needs to be no less than 40%... and it could increase in 10% increments every five years.

The "Income Bucket" of the Asset Allocation is itself a portfolio risk minimization tool, and when combined with an "Equity Bucket" that includes only IGVSI companies, it becomes a very powerful risk regulator over the life of the portfolio.

Other Risk Minimizers include: "Working Capital Model" based Asset Allocation, fundamental quality based selection criteria, diversification and income production rules, and profit taking guidelines for all securities,

Dealing with changes in the Investment Environment productively involves a market/interest rate/economic cycle appreciation, as has evolved in the Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) methodology. Investors must formulate realistic expectations about investment securities--- by class and by type. This will help them deal more effectively with short term events, disruptions and dislocations.

Over the past twenty years, the market has transitioned into a "passive", more products than ever before, environment on the equity side...  while income purpose investing has actually become much easier in the right vehicles. MCIM relies on income closed end funds to power our programs.

To illustrate just how powerful the combination of highest quality equities plus long term closed end funds has been during this time... we have provided an audio PowerPoint that illustrates the development of a Self Directed IRA portfolio from 2004 through 2014.

Throughout the years surrounding the "Financial Crisis", Annual income nearly tripled from $8,400 to $23,400 and Working Capital grew 80% $198,000 to $356,000.

Total income is 6.5% of capital and more than covers the RMD.

Managing income purpose securities requires price volatility understanding and disciplined income reinvestment protocals. "Total realized return" (emphasis on the realized) and compound earnings growth are the key elements. All forms of income secuities are liquid when dealt with in Closed End Funds.
