Hi,

We (I and a guy I hired to work with me) write mechanical trading systems for futures and trade them. I guess we have gotten good at it since our systems have been doing quite well lately :LOL:



If any of you are interested, you can copy our trades from collective2, http://collective2.com/system80245473. We make our money by trading so we don't charge anything or try to sell you anything else.

Keep in mind that losses are always possible and that you shouldn't risk money that you can't afford to lose. Also, since the systems trade multiple futures, I recommend that you use at least $50k for trading them.

$50k ???
that's getting into big money
If you get say 100+ people then it should increase your chances of winning

I've yet to see an algorithmic system that performs as well as the simple - but not always easy - method that many Chicago floor traders use. Often today they're "former" floor traders cleaning up on the Globex. The approach is more quantitative than technical.

For instance, the current upswing in the September ES gave an entry at 1955.25 on Aug 15 with a stop at 1937.00 and an initial price target at 1991.50. Initial risk was 18.25 ($912.50) per contract. The market hit the target on Aug 21. Traders using this method liquidated half their positions at 1991.50 (ignoring slippage) and moved their stops to the breakeven point. Actually they didn't need to in this case because the reaction low of Aug 22 gave a new stop at 1981.25. So the remaining 50% of the original upswing entry is still in the market at 2000.75 and the latest stop is at 1987.25. $1812.50 per contract on the first half of the position and $1600.00 per contract at the current stop on the remaining half. There's a potential new target of 2026.75 but this method usually holds the second half-position till it's stopped out.

Trading the S&P nowadays is like shooting fish in a barrel but other markets are more challenging. Gold for example, Crude and Natural Gas. But the currency futures are good.

For you to quote your trading is doing well you really need at least 2 main things -

1 - a long enough time period - ideally over 6 -9 months - as just a quarter in insufficient for most type of swing trading.

2. At least over 500 live trades - and for a day trader really over 1000 trades and over 6 months

By having this information - you can then get a better feel of how the method is working.

From my own experience I have seen strategies that have over 75% success rates over 50 trades - but then over 500 trades - you are down to 50 /50.

Remember the market makers have super computers at their disposal and therefore therefore price movements and waves are always changing to ensure 90% of all methods over a longer period will fail
