Are your signals generated via algorithms?
Our signals are fully automated and no manual intervention takes place in the decision making process. So yes, all our signals are generated via algorithms
When did you create the algorithms and strategies?
We originally started to created our algorithms between 2002 and 2006. From this period on, we have not optimised or edited the strategies in any way at all. They remain unchanged.
What time are signals issued?
Signals are typically issued between 4.30pm & 5pm Eastern Time
How can I trade after hours?
To this there are 3 different options:
- This is through instinet. You can trade a shadow instrument such as SPY on instinet with brokers like E*TRADE
- You can trade the S&P 500 Futures after hours with any recognised and established broker
- If you are in countries such as the UK, you can trade CFDs and a concept known as spread betting which trades virtually 24 hours. However, this concept is not allowed in the US for example
Can a trade be signalled for more than one strategy at the same time?
Yes this is entirely possible and does happen. Our strategies are 100% mechanical and there are times we have multiple positions in the market from a series of strategies. We therefore adopt money and risk management disciplines to ensure we can accommodate taking every signal
Why can you not issue signals before the market close?
This is a common question and one to which we do have a fair answer. Our strategies are based on many custom and standard indicators. We have to wait for the market to close at 4pm ET before we can allow the algos to calculate whether or not a trade should be executed
Do you offer a free trial?
We offer a heavily discounted period of subscription but not a completely free trial. There is a simple reason for this. First and foremost, we highly value our service.
Our regular rate of $99 per month is equivalent on an annualised basis to around 20 points S&P Futures points gains. (Each 10 points = $500 gains). Thats in some years, less than ONE PERCENT of our annualised gain!!!
There are not many services out there that provide such a high gain, for such a small fee.
So in a nutshell, we value our service extremely highly…….and we value our subscribers extremely highly. A significantly reduced offer is the best we can do and i am sure everyone can work out the maths of how long it takes to pay back the subscription fee on a monthly basis
How many algorithms do you have?
Currently we have 10 algorithms which we offer. Our algorigthms have been tested over many years primarily between 2000 & 2010 depending on which algorithm we are referring to
How do your strategies perform in differing market conditions?
Over the past 10 years, we have experienced the exhuberance of 2006 and early 2007, the great crash of 2008, the recovery from 2009 to 2011, fat fingers and the flash crash in 2011, the QE Driven rally from 2012 to 2016, Brexit and the Trump Presidency “shocks” of 2016 and no doubt, there will be many more Black Swan events for us to contend with!! But our strategies keep on performing and performing well!!
Are the strategies optimised?
Its important to note that we have NOT optimised or amended any of our algos since around 2006/2007. This for us is crucial as it validates the ability of our strategies to perform in differing market conditions.
