OFFSHOOT OF AWARD WINNING OPTION SYSTEM

MAKES DEBUT WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND WARRANTY

****************************************************

Dear Trading Enthusiast:

The small size and compact wording of the ad we reproduced for you below, from Investor's Business Daily, mirror the characteristics of the advertised product itself. OPTIONS "40 IN 4" is small and compact indeed. If the ad appealed to you, so will the system. In more than 32 years we've authored a number of technical trading products (market timing, stocks, options), and we're particularly proud of Options "40 In 4". Think back to other systems you've tried, and you'll ...

OPTIONS

Perceive Options "40 In 4" this way: 1. I think that Options "40 In 4" is the easiest and fastest to learn and use among all the trading plans and systems I've read about or tried. 2. Many traders spend thousands on tools, yet here is a product with greater accuracy, and more signals, still at its low charter price of $395. 3. I have never seen a trading product that comes with this kind of a warranty: strict performance criteria are met, or I can take advantage of a rebate plan.

We'll now describe the features of the system; share the outcome of its signals; and tell you how you can acquire it at its charter price. Keeping this introduction in character with the modest learning time the system will require of you, we'll limit it to just three pages.

What Does the System Do? It gives you a brief set of rules for simple mathematical computations that pinpoint 10 or more (seldom fewer) high probability trading opportunities a month in index options, with a 40% or larger price rise likely to occur in 4 or less trading days. You'll be pleased to note in the day-by-day trading section that when an option is ready to rally 40%, it often continues into the +60% to +100% range.

What Do You Do? You spend no more than 20 minutes, any time after the close of trading, to: 1. Check the opening, high, low and closing prices of one SP-100 (OEX) call option, and one OEX put option. The system selects the pair for you clearly.

2. Using basic math you compare prices in a certain way, so that you obtain a single value: tomorrow's Trading Edge. You need to save price data for three days only. 3. If your Trading Edge is in a certain range, commonly 5 to 10, you trade the option favored by the edge. You get statistical guidelines for targeting your profit. You sell within 4 trading days. Relatively rarely, a 5th day is allowed if a newer signal justifies it.

What Is The Warranty? As the day-by-day record section shows you, we use a Rated Performance Monitor. This gives each trade an RPS value (Rated Performance Score) based on how much gross profit is available within 4 days (rarely 5). Look at a few trades in the record: you'll see that RPS ranges from +2 to -2. There's also a penalty of -0.5 on the system if

3 or more days in a row fail to produce a trading edge (the "edge" is zero). The scoring becomes clear after you examine a few rows. The system literature spells it out, in any case.

For $100, which would be added to your system fee, you can choose a 100 calendar day warranty (about 70 trading days) which works this way: for every 25 days, marked off as performance periods in the record, RPS values are totalled. If the period total is +3.0 or less (though 3.0 equates to an overall gain of +120%), you may request either: 1. A 25% rebate, applied to your credit card; 2. A performance guide with suggestions for higher returns. The 25% is based on the $395 system fee. Should RPS be negative for the period, then the 25% is based on $495 (system fee plus warranty.)

How Did We Discover This System? In January 1996, a Reader's Choice Award honored our product, the "2-Day Swing" ....

KEY-VOLUME STRATEGIES INC. Introduction to: OPTIONS "40 IN 4" Page 2 of 3

method, in Stocks and Commodities magazine. This product, which is the "parent" of Options "40 In 4", sold at a considerably higher price of $995 before its user quota was filled. Several months before the quota was closed, we began to experiment with a subset of the "2-Day Swing" logic, along with an earlier by-product, the Daily Trading Key. By extracting about 20% of the combined logic of these two products, we were able to originate Options "40 In 4". Why were we so strict about closing the quota on the successful parent product, so soon after winning an award?

The parent product is so specific in generating not only trading signals but exact buy and sell prices that we became concerned about too many users potentially influencing the supply/demand balance in a negative way. Options "40 In 4" will have a longer life because its emphasis is on profit potential, rather than exact prices. When you know there is a trading signal, you buy as advantageously as you can under the next opening. This spreads the buy orders into a price range. We compute RPS from the average price between the opening and the day's low.

Likewise, on the sell side, you exit as advantageously as you can, knowing your potential. We give you ample statistical support and clear guidelines, updated as needed. You'll also be motivated to do independent study, bound to yield useful conclusions that enhance returns. You may start, for example, by correlating Trading Edge values with profit sizes. We'll help you with our own conclusions, right up front and in the future.

For users who may wish to upgrade later to a specific buy and sell price structure, we may make a higher priced version of the new product available. This may mean a new quota restriction, so we do not plan it in the near future. At the moment, "Op40" has no quota restriction, except that the charter rate applies only to prospective users who order within 15 days.

How to Order Options "40 In 4": Call 800-334-0411 ext. 12-T. Specify name of product ("Op40" for short), and charter rate of $395. If you wish hotline (see System Support below) add $100 or $150. If you miss the 15 day limit, system fee is $675. If you're an earlier purchaser of the "2-Day Swing" method, your fee for "Op40" is only $295. Optional 100 day warranty with any order: $100. Use Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. If you prefer to mail a check, ask the operator to connect you to the Key-Volume staff. We fill orders promptly by 2 day priority mail. You'll also get direct phone numbers and an E-mail address for System Support, for consultation on methodology. Thank you for choosing our products!

Revisiting "Year #11" In Progress (we're in our 13th year as of Nov 2007): For most of the 10 completed years, the annual bonus issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine (usually January or March) reported that a Reader's Choice Award was earned by Options

Revisiting "Year #11" In Progress (we're in our 13th year as of Nov 2007): For most of the 10 completed years, the annual  bonus issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine (usually January or March) reported that a Reader's Choice Award was earned by Options "40 In 4", following in the footsteps of the 2-Day Swing method. Nevertheless we have been modest about increasing the fee for "Op40": it is now $675 (or $775 with warranty). Inasmuch as it is not any prospective user's fault not to have found out about this product sooner, it is our policy to offer every new inquirer his or her personal charter rate period of 15 days. Be prompt, the difference between $675 and $395 is not insignificant. Since its third anniversary we've supplemented the "Op40" charter offer with a page reporting all performance periods. The 39 periods ending November 1998 were expanded through #114 by August 2004. We also furnish trade-by-trade detail for three modest return periods: #25, #28 and #39. Why did we not choose the highest return periods for illustration? We don't want new users to set expectations too high. Make your profit goals modest and "Op40" will find it hard to disappoint you, but relatively easy to reward you from time to time with returns beyond your expectations. Recent examples:  5 of the last 6 periods in the table that you'll see as you continue (#109 thru #114) had a win ratio in the 80% to 83% range. For periods more recent than #114, please see the KVS Market Releases numbered #930 and higher in the MARKET TIMING & MORE section of our website, we usually keep the latest release there and a few from earlier.

When you order the system, along with it you'll get trade-by-trade detail for all completed performance periods since inception: specific option chosen for each signal; average buy price; and the price to which the option rose within its 4 or 5 day time limit. Our promotional material shows in each case whether the choice was a call or a put, and standard (limit +100%) as well as high dollar gains (limit +300%), assuming $1000 invested. We do not reveal exact options and exact prices in promotions because part of the exclusive knowledge you'll acquire by purchasing the system will be which strike month and which price range to select. Giving this away to our prospects would be unfair to our users.

System Support Function: Whether you have questions before you order Options "40 In 4" or when you're already working with it, feel free to ask for Ben, John or Sally by calling either: 800-334-0411 ext. 12-J, or: 828-692-3401.

Hear the open, high, low and closing prices of the two SP-100 options (one call, one put) which, with their price action, provide the exclusive Trading Edge. The hotline also gives you pre-computed values to verify your own math, or as a shortcut to the Trading Edge. Rate for 3 months: regular $135, charter (first time only) $100. E-mail hotline: You may choose this instead of the voice hotline, $150 for 3 months, message comes to your box near 8PM ET.

OPTIONS "40 IN 4": Most Common Questions Answered

Has the system been able to do equally well on down-swings and up-swings?

Yes. Here's the key: every day after the close, the system gets what's the closest thing to a personal message from the two options it's interested in trading. You'll know from system instructions which options these are, exactly, at any given time. The system logic has been able to "get the message" and get it accurately more than 75% of the time. The trading edge formula has been sensitive enough to pick a call if the market is about to rise, and a put if the market is about to fall.

How much capital do I need for "Op40"?

So that your commissions may be only a modest portion of your transactions, make the minimum commitment per trade $1000 to $1300. In the trade-by-trade record in this mailing we subtracted $80 on each trade as the estimated total of buy and sell commissions. Discount brokers are competitive and you can do better than that. So that you may sometimes choose to be in more than one trade at the same time, and because it's also prudent to limit your risk on any transaction to 25% of your capital, we advise this realistic range for a modest trading budget: $4000 to $5200.

Will most of my trades last four trading days?

No. Some will close out on the first day. Most will last 2 or 3 days, with the last day a partial day. With rare exception, only trades confirmed by a strong new signal last 4 days, occasionally 5. If you prefer quick exits all the time, you'll forego some profit, and may even incur an occasional loss, though a day or two later you'd have had your gain. The system gives you guidelines for when to exit quickly, even at the possible cost of a better return a day or two later.

To trade a signal, will I buy at the next day's opening?

You may choose to do so if the signal is exceptionally strong. But the opening price is seldom the best buy price. We consider the system buy price to be the average between the opening and the low. A section of the system description deals with how to approximate this price with your buy order, so that you may place a "limit" order at a certain price. Get in the habit of placing your buy orders before the opening. Often the first trade will occur at a lower price, and your order will then execute at this lower price, giving you an unplanned advantage.

How will I know where to sell?

Two most common guidelines: 1. Aim for +40% to +50% on the latest signal, and close trades from any earlier signal in that direction, normally with larger profit, at the same time. 2. Generally the higher the trading edge the higher the profit outlook. Confirming signals with a low trading edge often add pleasant surprises: a special system page assists you with these, and also tells you when not to trade. The record shows blank lines for signals that were not traded. In such cases the option choice is listed as None if the edge was zero. If there was an edge greater than zero, but not high enough to trade, either (C) = Call or (P) = Put indicates which side had the edge but was not traded.

Does the system use stops?

Not the conventional way. The system suggests a unique "paper profit" test, to make sure you're out in 2 or 3 days if a loss warning is indicated, and the next signal does not support the trade.

Regarding the warranty: has any performance period qualified for a rebate so far?

Only one: Period #16, early 1997. This suggests you can safely forego the warranty, but if you feel that it may give you extra comfort you're welcome to add it to your order for $100. Should overall system performance be actually negative for 100 days, even the warranty fee would be returned. Our motive in offering the warranty is not to collect the extra fee, but to demonstrate our continued high confidence in superior results. We work with the system daily, and should any innovation be in order, it will be shared with you promptly.

How does the option system relate to your short term market letter?

Since 1970 Key-Volume Strategies and The Stock Performer have published a short term market letter which twice a month teaches subscribers the most successful market and stock timing methods and formulas that we've originated. You get exact targets for the market in both directions, and for stocks. For regular subscribers there are four recorded updates a week. "Op40" is a separate product with daily signals. The market letter predicts from several days to several weeks at a time.

"OPTIONS 40 IN 4" - AUGUST 2004 AND SUBSEQUENT UPDATES

WINNING TRADE RATIO: PLANNED 75%, ACHIEVED 79%

*********************************************************************


In its 9th year in 2004, Options "40 In 4" ("Op40") continues to exceed both its performance goals: 1. A 75% win ratio: 3 of 4 trades producing gains. 2. An average rise of +24% per option, within 4 sessions. We set the second goal by targeting this sequence for 4 consecutive, representative signals: +40% ... +40% ... +40% ... and -25% ... (+120 - 25 = +95, and +95/4 = +24). How goals have been surpassed is shown below and on the next page, summarizing all performance periods to date. Each period is normally 25 calendar days but may be one or two more to complete a sequence.

?

The 79% win ratio (1248 gains/1574 signals) exceeds the 75% goal. Average +34% rise (53880%/1574) exceeds the +24% goal. So that results are not skewed by very large rises, we limit rises to +100%, and in computing RPS (Rated Performance Score) we make +80% the max (RPS = 0.5 for every 20%). The system also prevents trades likely to under perform, limiting trades to 10 or less in some periods.
