Hourly Model real time performance
Since inception, November 10, 2009I have this past week created a Daily Model of the same trading technique. Hypothetical back-testing of the Daily Model shows a 12 month return of about +150% without pyramiding, to +650% with pyramiding ("pyramiding," simply means placing all cumulative net proceeds in succeeding trades):
Finally, a variation on the same theme, using a Weekly Model to filter out Daily trades that are not in the direction of the current Weekly signal:
Daily Model w/Weekly Filter
These results are too good not to share. Although a thorough reading of my blog will disclose the parameters being used, the system requires an investment in software, data feeds and possibly hardware in a complex array of daily monitoring and record keeping. An easy alternative is for me to supply the trading signals to all interested traders for a modest monthly subscription fee.
Allan's Definition of Modest
$50 per month for subscriptions initiated during January, 2010. (This amount will never increase as long as the subscription is continuously maintained on a monthly basis);
$100 per month for all subscriptions initiated on or after February 1, 2010;
Additional increases possible after March 1, 2010, commensurate with real time performance and/or an increase in the scope of and/or nature of the service.
I will send out an email with Hourly and Daily trading signal thresholds, or "pivots". If the threshold is hit between emails, trades are assumed to be initiated. Pretty simple stuff. I intend to cover SPY, SDS and TZA in the initial symbol coverage, representing an unleveraged index, a double beta index and a triple beta index. As performance dictates, I may add (or delete) other symbols to the coverage list, always trying to focus on the most robust and profitable trading opportunities. Performance records will be based on the underlying tradable, although all covered symbols do trade active options that could serve to increase leverage and amplify performance, either up or down (use "Average Trade Percentage" in the performance tables for ideas).
How to subscribe
I've placed a Subscription button on the profile column on the right side of this blog. Click it and follow the instructions. All subscriptions are made through PayPal and can be terminated at will, either yours or mine. Why would I terminate a subscription? If anyone were to distribute the signals without my permission,
The lawyer in me
I am so very sorry for this. I wrote the above description of this subscription service in about 30 minutes on New Year's Day, then turned to the issue of regulatory compliance relevant to this kind of project. Three hours later, the following represents what has to be disclaimed to subscribers, prospective subscribers, readers of this blog and just to be safe, anyone else. What has brought our entrepreneurial society to this state of risk disclosure/disclaimer/avoidance? Fodder for a new Blog, coming soon in 2010.
