Thanks for your suggestions.

Hello guys, I can't locate a custom version link on their website. Is this what you're talking about?

Thanks

The discussion was about custom versions of APS that find patterns with a specific number of bars in their formation. I don't think there is a link for that but the company will provide the custom version if you ask for it.

As far as the multiple CPU custom version. I have plans to order one for a quad machine soon.

I have some news guys: Just got a dual-core custom APS version. I can now run 2 instances of the program , each searching for different patterns and this has cut the execution time in half. Since I will be upgrading to a quad-core machine soon, I will add 2 more instances to get the searching time down by a factor of 4.

I think with a quad-core and 4 instances of the program I can have a real-time pattern search soon.

Please let me know if anyone has tried this already. Maybe I should post this question in the other APS thread.

Is it worth spending the money to get 4 licenses? I mean, did you make any money with this program to justify the expense?

I think the concept is intriguing and I suspect this company does not have many customers beause I haven't see any ads in trading magazines, so if this program works that is good, the less people using it the better it is.

You should read Michael Harris books (specially his last one) to understand the motivation behind the APS software.
Michael Harris also runs a fund management of some kind, I think, and an advisory consultancy for instutional clients, I believe.
I never saw APS advertised anywhere else but in his books; that, at least, is how I purchased my copy: by contacting the address in one of his books.
Also, he has written several articles for a variety of trading publications - they are shown on his website.
I do agree, the less people use it, the better - purely selfish, you understand!

His last book Profitability and Systematic Trading is a must read. Down to earth analysis based on simple formulas he actually derives, no hype and false hopes for anyone. I liked the chapters on the Profitability Rule and Risk and Money Management. I have some objections about a few minor points made by him in the Zero-sum game chapter. Overall this book is a gem.

I think his concept of Synthesis is brilliant and he is probably the first to develop an automated trading system discovery program. Here is the link for those that do not have the book:

I have received the following from message from tradingpatterns.com:
"Dear customer:

There have been a number of incidents recently involving attempts by software crackers to obtain a copy of our full functional program. These individuals approached a number of our customers in popular trading forums offering to exchange some other programs for APS. We were notified by two of our customers and the email of one of the crackers was reported as jimbo3675@…com We would like to thank those customers for informing us and we value their help and support.

APS has several levels of protection, including code encryption, a hardware lock with password entry and more importantly each and every customer installation is freshly compiled to include a unique number in several places of the code that identifies the licensee. Even if the program is decrypted and the password scheme is cracked, any copies distributed will still identify the licensee who illegally transferred a copy of the program.

Please note that in the past attempts to crack earlier versions of APS and/or patch the missing code generation in the demo failed. These cracked versions are unlikely to produce correct results and were reported to be highly unstable. More importantly, the crackers may have imbedded spyware in such cracked versions – and in other cracked programs in general – for the purpose of stealing trading passwords and other important information. This is enough of a reason for not installing and running cracked code.

We thank you for your business and support and especially we thank those customers who notified us about these incidents.

Tradingpatterns.com"

Now, jimbotrader, that "jimbo3675@…com" wouldn't be you, would it? A simple "yes" or "no" will suffice.

Eduardo.
