Volatility Arbitrage Training
and Software Scripts


My Name is David Vallieres.

I've traded commodities, gold, options, and futures since 1987

I’m ruthless when it comes to taking profits from the market, because the market is a jungle.

I make no apologies for my behavior.

I’m not trying to make friends…

I’m trying to make money…

I’m the last person you want on the other side of your trade. And the first person you want by your side, in your corner when you are trading.

More importantly, I’ll do ANYTHING to help you learn the methods I use

I was just about to start a coaching session with a new client. Over the last few years I’ve tested and taught over a dozen different trading strategies. I typically start coaching a new client by giving him a choice of several strategies.

Before we even got started he said,

“I don’t want or need to learn 100 different strategies,
just give me the one that works!”

That shocked me. I never had a client so certain about what he wanted.

I said to myself, “This is my kind of client…”

I immediately liked him. That’s my dream client if I ever saw one.

He went on to say that one important thing he'd learned during his life was that,

“…if you really want to be successful, take the direct route … get there in the shortest time possible. Stop fooling around with penny ante stuff. Forget everything else, and focus on the one method that works.”

As you can tell from the way he talked, HE KNEW WHAT HE WANTED!

In the 40+ years I’ve been in the business as an independent trader, the strategy called ‘volatility arbitrage’ (or sometimes known as ‘basis arbitrage’) is the best strategy I know.

I explained this to him and he was hooked and said, “Teach it to me!

And, with pleasure, I did.

He studied hard, mastered it, and was aggressive. Not many are.

He knew what he wanted and he was certain to get it.

He saw first hand that this is the only strategy that is really scalable, easily manageable. And that’s exactly what he was looking for.

The market has a wide open architecture. You can design a strategy using dozens of different instruments and methods with a million combinations.

But that’s the problem…

There are too many choices and too many methods that are only a little bit profitable.

He wasn’t interested in ‘dabbling’ in strategies that didn’t have significant edge or weren’t scalable.

He was a successful and determined and he understood that there’s risk in trading just like in any business endeavor, but he had a formula that worked for him:

Take the direct route.

I stayed above that the market is a jungle.

When you start trading the markets, you’re going to run into an enemy that has more information, more power and more money than you.

Every retail trader has a common enemy: Institutions and big traders.

You’re just ‘food’ to them. They want to eat your capital. You are lunch to them, nothing more. You’re insignificant compared to their size.

How do you win against a bigger, faster, stronger enemy?

confuse the crap out of them and then blind them

Disorient them… shock them… make it hard for them to find you…

That’s why we trade spreads on futures and ETF’s… we are long and short the market at the same time. When we are both ‘long’ and ‘short’ we are taking both sides of the market - we don’t care if the market goes up or down!

When we do that, the big traders are essentially flying ‘blind’ :

They can’t ‘hunt’ for our orders…

They can’t tell what our game plan is…

They can’t manipulate the market in a way that hurts our position…

See? I don’t play by their rules.

I don’t give a fig about what they want.

I don’t get trapped by their manipulations of the market.

I’m immune to news, Fed speak, gossip, tips and economic events.

And it’s making me richer and wealthier every day.

I click a few keys on my keyboard each morning, check the “2 Line” signal and hit ‘enter’ to buy or sell. And I’m done for the day.

I play golf.

I take my wife shopping.

I do whatever I want.

I come back at the end of the day to decide if I should exit, take a loss or take profits and I’m done.

That’s the way it should be

All the crap you hear and read online from market ‘experts’ and all the talking heads on financial news have one purpose:

They want you confused and disorientated

That’s their goal … because a confused person can’t think clearly.

The ‘pros’: institutions and big players want you confused so you make mistakes.

Then they can take your money.

See when you let them confuse you, you are playing by their rules.

Start playing to win. And to win you have to stop playing by their rules, so…


When you don’t play by their rules you win more.

Hanging out in Hungary? Trying to live a balanced life in Brazil? Or just chillin’ in Chicago? If you have a computer and Internet you have everything you need to get started today.

Let’s do some more trading:

Not only will I teach you how to use Volatility Arbitrage in your trading, but I'll give you access to all of the custom indicator and oscillator scripts I use in the "Think or Swim" and "TradingView" platforms.

These scripts cost me many thousands of dollars and 7 years to develop, but you get them all (9 scripts total) at no additional cost when you sign up for my "Trade The Curve" training.

I trust these indicators with my hard-earned money.

The algorithms that power them are complex. They are sophisticated beyond belief. One of the videos I did was shown to a Yale professor of mathematics who told me, “That’s the best explanation of volatility I’ve ever seen”.

While these indicators took 7 years to develop and were created with assistance of AI (artificial intelligence) … they are very easy to use and understand.

There’s no ‘guessing’ … the signal is either UP or DOWN. That’s it.

You don’t need to be a professor of a top Ivy League university to understand, use and profit from them!

All the hard work to create them has been done!

One of the questions I get a lot is, “Well, Dave, if you’re doing so well with trading, why are you selling courses?”

The question itself reveals the ignorance of basic business principles of the person asking. However, the response may clear up any confusion you may have:

First, early in my career I read that, “If you really want to get good at something, teach it to others”. And so I’ve always been a teacher – as soon as I had something valuable to share, I taught it and I learned more than I would have ever known if I didn’t teach it.

Second, I’m a trader. That’s what I do, I trade financial instruments …so… I also trade my expertise and knowledge.

I suggest you do the same: If you really want to help people and be of service to them, start teaching what you know. You’ll learn more, you’ll have students that really appreciate you for it.

When I first started my trading career in (full-time) I made all kinds of mistakes: I listened too much to the ‘talking heads’ who told me to buy this, buy that. I paid attention to the economic reports, but always guessed wrong on the direction. Bad news seems to make the market go up and good news, down. I could never quite figure it out. It confused me.

I lost money on almost everyone of those ‘recommendations’ made by screaming banshee’s on late night financial TV … booya!

That’s when I decided NOT TO PLAY BY THEIR RULES… that was the most important decision of my life and it’s the one that turned EVERYTHING around for me financially

… that’s when I discovered ‘basis arbitrage’ which is what this strategy is all about.

I spent the next 7 years trying to come up with the ‘perfect’ indicator for the volatility arbitrage trade when it finally ‘clicked’. With the help of a dozen math geniuses and the input of AI (artificial intelligence) and gobs of my hard earned dollars spent … the tools, indicators and signals were finally ready.

Now they can be yours for a fraction of the cost to develop.

One you have the power of these tools and the knowledge of how to use them you can stick your middle finger up at Wall Street ‘insiders’ because…

You’re not playing by their rules anymore

This is an opportunity, that doesn’t come around but maybe once in a lifetime, to really start managing your own money and and controlling the outcome instead of being controlled by market forces that are working against you.

The Trade the Curve (TTC) System

Let’s cut the BS… you want to learn about the Volatility Arbitrage method of trading and I can show you the way.

Just the “2 Line Signal” alone could be worth hundreds of thousands to you. Then there’s two other indicators I use for swing trades: The Bell Curve oscillator and the Dominance indicator.

These two indicators will ‘spot’ the really big swing moves in the spread:

You get the scripts for TOS and TV and full instructions on use and strategy. When combined with the 2 Line Signal, you have an un-beatable combination to start winning and blind-siding the institutions.

This may seem a bit cliché, but you will not find anything like these scripts anywhere on the planet. They are unique to Trade the Curve.

What you get in the Elite System:

TradetheCurve Indicators & Scripts for ThinkorSwim (TOS) and Tradingview (TV). These are unique, custom-built indicators. Each indicator has been carefully tested and used in real trading. You get:

These are the golden keys to success in your trading. If you bought all these scripts to run your trading business it would cost several thousand dollars, minimum -- but you won’t pay that.

You’ll also receive all these additional BONUSES:

The Guaranteed Success Trading Seminar (GSTS) was a live, online seminar for TTC members. Each paid a minimum of $2,497 to be present for the 6-weekly sessions. It’s the foundation of the basis arbitrage strategy up to and including, advanced level material.

When I take a trade I post it in the Slack channel and explain why I took the trade. This service is included with your purchase of the TTC System. No monthly fee, this service is invaluable, especially to new members.

Each night after the market closes (Monday-Thursday) I upload a video covering the spreads we trade and provide my analysis. Each video is easily digestible and typically run just 5 - 10 minutes. Members state this is their favorite part of their membership. I do this with NO monthly fee.

As a TTC Member you’ll receive a unique password to access our Member’s area. In the Member’s area you’ll be able to access the TTC indicators and scripts, the full GSTS Masterclass, additional resources and a unique option course I call “MM”, videos on how to setup TOS and TV and more. You’ll also have options in case you need Support. There’s NO monthly fee for access to the Member’s area.

Community… where would we all be without the support of a like-minded community? The TTC is supportive of new traders, and freely give their time to help answer questions and providing encouragement to members. It’s a benefit I can’t place a value on, it’s too valuable to even try. But it’s included with your one-time payment and, again, with NO monthly fee.

Commonly asked questions

QUES: I’m really busy can I do this part-time and do I have to sit at my computer all day?

ANS: You can do this in the morning, afternoon or evening… sometimes I put on a spread at 6 or 7 PM at night and take profits the next morning before the open. Or, I do what I did in the masterclass… I enter after the 2 Line signal fires and come back at the end of the day to take profits. You don’t have to sit at your computer all day to do this.

QUES: I’ve only been trading a few months. How easy is this to learn?

ANS: If you’ve only traded a few months you can probably pick this up in a few days, just to learn the mechanics of getting scripts setup and placing orders. Everything else, including advanced strategy will be included in the training modules you’ll receive.

QUES: If this was such a good strategy won’t it be ruined if too many people learn how to do it?

ANS: Futures, stocks and ETF’s on the NYSE and Nasdaq is a $250 billion per day market. The strategy will not be ruined by more people learning it. Even if 10,000 people learned it (or more), it would not be ruined.

QUES: How much money do I need to start trading?

ANS: I would suggest a minimum of $2500 in your brokerage account to start, but you can trade as large as you want.
