I am trying to login to the Flash Viewer and it says I am already connected—what is going on?
This error message will come up if you have another instance where your account information is logged into another Flash Viewer. Make sure that if you access your Timers through two different computers that you always close out of the application after using it. Also, if you have allowed or someone has accessed your account information, then it is possible that someone else is logged into the Flash Viewer already (remember your account information is for your use only). In rare instances, it could coincide when we are doing routine maintenance or uploading the latest Timer to be viewed (usually between 7pm and 10pm CST. In this case, try again in five minutes.

Do you have a track record?
Fortucast is more of a forecasting tool rather than a system program. Consequently people get in and out at various prices and do not follow our recommendations. At times of the year, semi-annual or annually after we have time to carefully audit, we publish our record.
Fortucast focuses on precise timing and movement analysis while also attempting to provide insights into market behavior that are not found elsewhere. It is not a black box system. Seasoned traders, that have good money management skills, and who react quickly to changing market conditions, do particularly well with Fortucast reports. With respect to Fortucast, they read between the lines, and enter and exit at slightly different prices than our recommendations based on their insights and unexpected market conditions. Our track record is a reflection of all the official recommendations that we have made and are entirely hypothetical. In fact, very few of our clients take every trade that we recommend, especially in terms of the multiple position strategies we may suggest. We ask you to work with your broker, taking into consideration your net worth, the size of your account, the markets they are familiar with, and their margins in order to develop money management strategies that best suit your personal finances. Two of the most common errors made by both new and seasoned commodity traders are undercapitalization and improper money management.
Fortucast recommends that you have at least 4 times the margin money recommended by your clearing firm available for every commodity that you trade. We suggest that no particular trade should risk more than 10% of your capital. In addition, for most short-term speculators, the ideal entry point(s) should be identified so that the amount at risk is in the $300-400 range. If you decide to trade multiple positions, a good principle is to be in a profitable position before adding as well as having sufficient equity to manage the additional exposure.
