My name is Ed DownsI founded of Nirvana Systems over 30 years ago. A software engineer by training, I fell in love with the potential profits offered by the markets and began looking for good tools to engage them. Back in those days, there was only one software program available for trading, by the name of CompuTrac. I paid the $3,000 purchase price and started trading. 

Nirvana’s Focus on Automation – And Why it Matters! 

I quickly realized that my own emotions were getting in the way of my success. It was also difficult to find good candidates. Since I was an engineer, I started thinking “Why not automate this process?” I got so excited about the idea, I formed Nirvana Systems and began working on how to automate my trading. We tried many approaches, and in 1992 invented OmniTrader, based on what we learned from using other software.

By the way, when I say “automation” I don’t mean “automated trading” - though OmniTrader can do that. I mean automating processes to find the best candidates, and then manage the trades. OmniTrader can automatically find a great list for trading every day, fire Trading Signals in the charts when the highly-probable trades present themselves, and automatically manage them to the exit.  Your job? To pull the trigger on the best opportunities. 

In 1996 we started The Nirvana Club to focus on developing Trading Signals based on Artificial Intelligence. In the years to follow, we continually improved the technology as new members joined The Club. Today, our A.I. is second to none in the industry. You don’t necessarily need A.I. to be successful – but it certainly helps with accuracy and our Members love it.

The Path to Trading Success 

Along the way, we coined the term, “Path to Trading Success” to describe the journey our customers have taken with us. Not only did we continue to innovate to get better and better automated tools, we helped our customers use them, and facilitated communication between them. We want the members of our “family” to succeed, and we have collected a number of testimonials that attest to their success.

Can We Help You Succeed? 

Since 1990, we have built many unique and powerful trading applications. While all of them are great, different users find they like the approaches taken by certain favorite apps over others.  Some really enjoy our second trading platform, VisualTrader, because it provides a unique view of the market. For others, “Swing Trading” with OmniTrader is the way to go. 

Thanks for visiting Nirvana Systems.   Let us help you get started on YOUR Path to Trading Success.
