MTR Investors Group was founded in mid 2008. Since that time our primary goal is to provide powerful and profitable investment research tools to stock and option investors/traders. We do not provide buy or sell recommendations on any stock, etf, or other investments. We simply provide powerful tools for stock and option investors and traders.
The following are the primary tools we provide (we also provide economic models and advanced charting):
I. Expert Option Search
Our Credit Spread. Iron Condor, Covered Call and Cash Secured Put screener is one of the most powerful tools we provide to the individual investor. Powerful features such probability of assignment, downside protection, and many others. Our screener helps option traders make the best decision possible when writing Covered Calls, Naked Puts, Credit Spreads, and Iron Condors.
Many investors use our option screener to monitor a long term portfolio and select the best covered calls to sell on their portfolios.
Option Writers/Sellers use our option screener to find options with the highest probability of expiring worthless.
II. Stock Miner
Stock Miner is use to analyze stocks from a monthly and weekly historical performance. We use Stock Miner for weekly and monthly trade setups.
III. Stock Market Scout (SMS) & Stock Market Level (SML)
We use SMS as a model to indicate allocating cash to an index ETF (such as SPY) by going long on Green, cash on Yellow, short on Red (or stay in cash). We use SML to indicate if the market is overbought or oversold. This is not a recommendation to buy or sell SPY.

My name is Payman Winborn. Upon graduation from college in 1999 I founded a company that distributed computer hardware. Although this was a profitable business, I did not want to focus all my resources on one avenue of success, so I looked to diversify my interests. I explored real estate and finance as possible alternative businesses and discovered an interest and passion in futures trading. This is what I ultimately choose as a second source of income.
Initially, I imagined that day trading would be the ideal profession: no customers or staff, no inventory or rent and the possibility of unlimited income. And, more importantly, it presented me with the opportunity to work anywhere....from the privacy of my home or from the balcony of a hotel room overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Unfortunately, I knew little about the pitfalls of day trading for a living. To begin with, I spent countless hours reading books, studying charts and conducting research in an effort to become a profitable trader. Six years later, and after the loss of several hundred thousand dollars, my efforts finally resulted in the development of a highly profitable strategy.
This strategy is primarily based on technical analysis and was developed for ES E-Mini S&P 500 Futures contracts from CME Group but it also works in many other financial instruments such as Stocks (NYSE), Bonds, Currencies(Forex Spot), Commodities (Gold and Crude Oil From CME GROUP,Globex,NYMEX, CBOT,Brent Crud Oil From ICE Global Markets), Options, Global Indices and CFD’s with similar high accuracy.
In retrospect, I understand that the biggest barrier to my success was the fact that I tried to learn everything by myself. An experienced mentor could have helped me avoid that painful learning experience....and saved me a significant amount of money as well as many years of frustration.
Today I am an active, and profitable, trader. As a token of appreciation for my success, I now share my tools and experience with other day traders. I believe that my knowledge and skill can help others become successful traders and, in the summer of 2010, I began to publish my realtime market signals and daily results online in order to demonstrate the accuracy of my trading strategy.

Gopal Gantayat is the President of The Free Investors ("TFI"), an independent registered investment advisor in New Jersey, and the Portfolio Manager for our flagship Mosaic Portfolio, a long-term, total-return-focused equity portfolio.
Gopal received an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business with specialization in Finance, Accounting and Management.

At TFI, we approach investing in stocks with the mindset of a long-term business owner, not as a trader. Before investing in a company, we do a thorough, bottoms-up analysis of the company. When we buy the stock of a company, our intention is to hold it for years and decades to come unless there is a significant change in the future business prospect of the company.
I trade options and stocks with longer investment horizons since 2004. I evaluate stock market investments mainly based on fundamental analysis. However I usually pick trades where technical direction supports underlying fundamentals.

Retired. Natural gas proponent. My motive is to educate leaders and the general public about our vast resources of clean and inexpensive natural gas. This will help end useless wars in the Middle East, and lower prices for all users. It will help improve economies around the world. We need promote natural gas vehicles of all kinds, including ships, trains, and airplanes, autos and trucks.
