So far this year I have subscribed 5 of the best ranked C2 systems. Up to now this is the only one that brought me profits, and it is also the cheapest. Well done Shawn, and
thank you!

Only been using this system for about 3 weeks, so not long enough to give a good idea....But i want a futures system that is long and short and this seems to fit the bill....ask me again in 12 months..

I've been a subscriber for over 3 months and have been very happy with the performance. I had to ride out a $5K drawdown within the first month of trading, but glad I stuck it out. I use Trader68 to autotrade it, but it seems like it could be manually traded easily since the signals usually occur at the beginning of the evening session. Can't beat the current subscription price of $29/mo (although the system description indicates the price will go up to a reasonable $149/mo at some point).

The people who blame and scold this system developer really haven't understood and accepted the risk inherent in trading volatility.
It's easy to intellectually accept a size-able draw-down but the reality is that most really haven't accepted that is always around the next
corner and it always hurts. The emotional reaction to the pain is understandable but the reality of mean reversion systems is that
too tight risk controls degrade performance and in order to maximize performance painful draw-downs are inevitable.
I don't think we ever get comfortable with that pain or should we, but acceptance of it is crucial to performance.

Check out the drawdowns in other volatility systems over any similar length of time you will see the current draw-down in this system is very low in comparision and the risk reward is very high.

Hi, I have a website and quite a few members have suggested that adding a chat room would be a great idea.

I'm searching for something I might be able to integrate well into my site.

Has anyone tried RumbleTalk or Envolv?

1CGold and economic freedom are inseparable 1D-Alan Greenspan

Let us just say that economic growth falters or asset prices start to fall, then what? What will happen to the market? Would the FED just start printing away? The end of QE and the bond purchasing program not only drops the bond markets and overvalued stocks, it makes silver and gold look extremely bearish. Many factors could be playing into this with the Swiss Gold Initiative, Ebola, fear and other geopolitical concerns. All of these affect the market in an odd way since we see a huge demand for gold, yet the price is falling with demand growing, it hardly seems right. The analysts will do the blame game, and try to make sense out of it, who better to blame but the FED. Especially convenient when past members of the FED are blaming the system that they created or put in place.
Greenspan stated that the FED 19s balance sheet 1Cis just a pile of tinder 1D and gold is a good place to invest, because he feels it will rise 1Cmeasurably 1D in the next five years. After 19 years at the FED, seems odd that he would slander the way they have been handling things, even with his successor Bernanke still in power, yet he said the FED 1Cfell short of its goals 1D when it came to economic growth and unemployment.
Alan had been on or near wall street since the 40s and knows his way around money and economics. During his time with the FED he used standard Taylor rule of economics, that every percent that inflation rises, the central bank should raise interest. This was not the view or beliefs Alan had from the 1960s. Greenspan seemed to have been a huge advocate for gold, in fact he published an article on Gold and Economic Freedom in 1966. Some of his statements in it are jaw dropping knowing now what he has done while in the FED, saying gold was a great way to save your money and was pumping up the gold standard. Just like what he is stating now, yet in 1966 gold was $35 an once.
This was of course before he was a member of the FED or a consultant for President Ford, Bush and Regan. At this time his job and focus was being an economic consultant for his own company, backed by beliefs non-existent of his time in the FED. From 1987 to 2005 Alan did not partake in any broadcast interviews unlike Bernanke his successor who makes regular public statements trying to gain assurance of the media and people, trying to gain transparency instead of the secretive past of the FED. Greenspan before and while serving in the FED was also Director of Foreign Relations and served as director of huge corporations like JP Morgan, Mobil General Foods and many more. He even assisted Nixon as coordinator on domestic policy. Alan was regarded like a rock star to politicians and the financial world, until some bad calls were made, then the subprime mortgage crises that tarnished his reputation.
What is Alan really saying that you have less than five years before the market collapses, so you are welcome for the QE handout, now move over to gold? Greenspan may be feeling guilty for the years he helped drain the money supply; he now is on a buy gold campaign when he is clearly a monetarist. He is a major manipulator and is a key player in where we are today and 4 trillion dollars in debt. Now he goes back after all we have suffered though, as if we do not know that PMs are a way to insure our money. Is he just talking to the elite, because he knew the way to grow the economy in 1966 and did a 180 turn. What is really happening here is major market manipulations; they sell paper gold from $1300 down to $1200. Manipulators are then guaranteed volume to be able to buy at traders stops. Then they buy back positions at $1200 (if they can see the order books) then make money again when it rebounds, voila.

I would like to get a system automated so I can trade automatically at interactive brokers. Here is the system:

Can you steer me in the right direction?
Trading rules for US stocks:
1. The stock price must be above $5 per share.
2. The stock 19s average daily volume over the past 21 days (one
trading month) must be at least 250,000 shares per day.
3. The stock 19s 10€day Average Directional Index (ADX) is above 30.
4. Today the stock 19s lowest price is at least W% (W = 8) below the previous day 19s close.
5. Today 19s close is in the bottom X% (X = 10) of the day 19s range.
6. The ConnorsRSI(3,2,100) value of the stock is below Y, where Y = 10
7. If the above rules are met today, buy the stock tomorrow on a
further intraday limit Z% below today 19s closing price (Z = 10).
8. Exit the position when the stock closes with a ConnorsRSI(3,2,100) value above N (N = 80), exiting at the closing price.

A developer interested in helping me makes it sound awfully complex. Is there really this much to it? He says:
The trading system you described below can be developed in the Java language. It would have
the following components:
- Connectivity to data feed provider
- Connectivity to execution broker
- Order state manager
- Component to calculate the market data indicators
- Actual strategy logic
- User interface
-the market data and historical data provided by IB is not so reliable so use a better data feed provider (like IQFeed) and use
IB just as the execution platform.
-Additionally, because positions can be held over several days, a database will be needed for state persistence. This is required in case you restart the application, so that it know what open positions you are holding.

Thank you
Larry Klein

Hi Larry,

Both of the systems we offer here on C2 use a custom program to autotrade in live IB accounts as well as issue the trading signals to our C2 subscribers. We have developed a number of these custom programs for clients over the years. Based on the description you gave and assuming a minimal user interface, I would estimate the project to take about 20 hours of work. If you're interested in having us do the work, send me private message on C2 and include your email address.

This is the ConnorsRSI system ... I would advise that you look at historical backtests and most importantly the equity curves, rather than looking at individual trades. What Connors never shows is how his systems trade as a strategy - he only talks about individual trade results and does not show how trading it mechanically plays out. The big challenge here is trading frequency (which is too low in my opinion) and position sizing.

And if you look at what you are asking, you really only need a screen for these candidates since all orders are limit orders that can be put in the night before. This is not a system that needs automation to work, but rather a screening algorithm to identify potential trades that you then put in as limit orders.

This type of screen is easy to do (I already did it for fun about a year ago when the system first came out). Contact me and I'll be happy to discuss further.

Composed of a board of governors, the reserve bank presidents and the seven members of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meet eight times a year to discuss and set interest rates, these decisions will control the money supply and the exchange value of the U.S. dollar. The FED who buys and sells government securities that can tighten or loosen the monetary supply this in return will raise or decrease interest rates.

Today they publicly announced the end of QE3 they perhaps may just call it something else, weigh-able aid, perceptible appease, or computable assist. They can call it what they want, but the one thing they will not really do is stop it. They announced their extraordinary positive outlook on our economy. I do not really know where or how they got their information; they said that they see solid job gains, lower unemployment due to under utilization of labor resources. That low energy costs will hold down inflation (back to my USD and oil theory) or that the inflation is somewhat diminished. I do not know what billionaire world they live in. While in the real world we are seeing that the FED is buying up the assets we supposedly own. We will never pay off our homes or land, we are taxed so much that until we are dead they own us.
If they raise the rates it will cause a huge disruption in the world of politics, and with elections so close it is hard to fathom that Obama would let them. How long till QE4? The real economy cannot and will not just be fixed by debt.

Is m2 the ultimate denomination of wealth?
A decade ago in 2004 silver was only $6 an ounce then in 2008 $9 now in 2014 you are looking at almost double what it was six years ago. Even the epic loss in 2011 did not seem to tarnish SLV as an investment. I would look at these numbers and agree that investing in silver is a sure bet. Floating rate notes (FRNs) cannot compare to silver trading, when buying silver it 19s more of a stack and hold type of investment. The metals market cannot keep up the lows we see, the production in mining is well above the low numbers that we are trading at currently. Are industrial buyers just locking in a supply? We are seeing mass rollover of long contracts, unusual for industrial buyer 19s positions. These seem to be a 1Cdeeper pocket 1D strategy, possibly metal manipulation. Silver is oversold when looking at a technical picture, last year looking at the RSI you see silver bottoming with lows right before it hit the lows June of last year. Has the spike in SLV just begun? We saw record sales last month, with the most volume ever seen in SLV COMEX futures, even shortages in the physical metal.
Could silver go lower? Some traders predict $15 others see the lows just a way for the SGE to buy discounted metals and horde them until they can control the new fix price. Who can really predict the drop or rise with all the global entities corrupting the market. We never thought we would see interest rates at zero, how do we know what is to come? Well look at history, look at human and market predictability, in no way will they just let metals go lower than we see now. This is why trading metals is really the way to go; yes holding the physical PMs is a great insurance for your own personal assets. Trading metal options is a true and complete strategy. While the cost of silver is so low I personally would stack and hold, however as it gets higher lets say over $49 I would switch to lead.

Systems To AutoTrade

Done with Setup 
No credit needed for systems with free trials. Let's trade!

Calculating recent trading record. Please wait.

In the case of transactions denominated in currencies other than USD, we calculate the profit/loss of the trade in the non-USD currency, and convert that foreign currency amount into USD at today's conversion rate.

We include estimated commissions and fees in these results (including AutoTrading fees), but our estimates of broker commissions are just that - estimates. Your own brokerage commissions may differ.

In addition, we do not include Trading System leasing fees in these results. In the case of most systems, you will be charged a monthly fee which will decrease any profitability shown here.

These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown.

In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program, which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.

It's completely free to create a Simulated Broker Account here on . We'll give you $100,000 of imaginary money to play with, to experiment with automated trading systems.

The easiest way to start for yourself is to click on one of the people below, see what algorithm he is trading, and then press the button that allows you to trade the same algorithm in your own account.

Erase All Sim Account Results?

You can erase the results in your Simulated Broker Account and start again with a fresh $100,000 account balance. If you do this, all your simulated trading history and performance results will disappear. It will not be possible to restore your results.

    About the results you see on this Web site

    Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.

    These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity.

    Material assumptions and methods used when calculating results

    The following are material assumptions used when calculating any hypothetical monthly results that appear on our web site.

    • Profits are reinvested. We assume profits (when there are profits) are reinvested in the trading strategy.
    • Starting investment. For any trading system on our Web site, we assume you will invest the amount that appears as the starting amount of that system's performance chart.
    • All fees are included. When calculating cumulative returns, we try to estimate and include all the fees a typical trader incurs when AutoTrading using AutoTrade technology. This includes the subscription cost of the strategy, plus any per-trade AutoTrade fees, plus estimated broker commissions if any.
    • "Max Drawdown" Calculation Method. We calculate the Max Drawdown statistic as follows. Our computer software looks at the equity chart of the system in question and finds the largest percentage amount that the equity chart ever declines from a local "peak" to a subsequent point in time (thus this is formally called "Maximum Peak to Valley Drawdown.") While this is useful information when evaluating trading systems, you should keep in mind that past performance does not guarantee future results. Therefore, future drawdowns may be larger than the historical maximum drawdowns you see here.

    Trading is risky

    There is a substantial risk of loss in futures and forex trading. Online trading of stocks and options is extremely risky. Assume you will lose money. Don't trade with money you cannot afford to lose.
