A note and introduction from Mark:

"In this video I walk you through the new features of CandlePRO v5, as well give tips on optimizing strategies, finding strategies that suit your trading schedule and what I look for when I backtest.

If you have any interest in CandlePRO or candlestick trading I stronly encourage to watch the whole video. I know it is a bit long (~43 minutes) but if you are serious about trading, which I think you are or you wouldn't be here, then this video is a must watch.

If you have any questions at all feel free to ask them in the comments below I will be happy to help.

Happy pipping,

Mark Norris

PipHut Chief Strategist
