I was also looking for a used (legal) copy of this program but then someone told me in a forum that buyers of used software risk losing everything because malicious sellers can hide a backdoor in the code and steal all your trading and bank codes.

It's pretty scary isn't it?

It's pretty scare these days even with legal software. Look for instance at adobe, java and flash. They are loading a bunch of tasks slowing down the computer, keep constantly checking for updates, etc.

IMO, the best solution is to have a PC only for trading without any personal files and data in it and to change passwords quite often.

I guess the special offer web page is no longer there but I have decided to buy this software.

Any suggestions about proper use/application of results will be appreciated.

I plan to use it for US stock and FX short term position pattern trading.

Hello All,

With APS my understanding is that the software finds "new" patterns based on ones risk/reward parameters, etc. However, if I understand the software correctly, this can only be achieved on one secuity at a time. Consequently, I'd be interested in knowing how reliable a new pattern is when traded over a PORTFOLIO of stocks?

All comments welcome,

Chorlton

Hello Chorlton,

APS patterns are security specific. You can find patterns for a portfolio of securities using a single workspace but you are correct, each pattern in the results is always associated with a specific security.

This is something I thought about since I got APS almost two years ago. There is an answer: find patterns in a security and then backtest on a portfolio. Select only those securities that work with the specific pattern and form a new portfolio. And so on...

I mean there is no justification as to why a pattern should be profitable across the board. Remember that investors often sell one security to buy another or do sector rotation type of strategies. Also pair trading involves long/short position in similar securities.

I think APS has a lot of power and if used smartly the results can be excellent.
