This system is too risky as it tends to go against trend aiming for a quick pullback that often doesn't arrive and so losing positions are left open increasing the losses. For my experience, I don't recommend it.

Some nice trades since I subscribed. So far I'm happy. Unfortunately, reviewing a provider after a couple weeks is meaningless. I'd prefer to write a review after a couple months or more but apparently C2 doesn't allow this. Sigh...

System started out OK but I ran into the drawdown during July and August. It might perform well in the long term, but you'd want to have a good buffer of capital to withstand the drawdowns. I think the developer has a good understanding of what makes a successful trading system, and implementing good risk management.

So far so good, the system uses good risk management, and has a very realistic 52% win rate. Avg. winners $490 vs. $380 avg loss. These stats are vastly better than most systems on here. Novices are drawn to the ROI% numbers without digging deeper into the trade stats. This system doesn't draw-down 10% to win 1%. I ran some analysis on all the trade results and found a $550 stop loss improves the overall max-drawdown so that's what I've been using and it is working well.

While we're on the topic of changes to the site, I really think the change to having the reviews be by invitation only has resulted in very few reviews being written. It seems like the same 4 reviews have been on the home page for the past month or two. I know that personally I only write reviews when I have a strong opinion about a system, and that time usually does not coincide with the time I get an invite to review that system.

I understand the reasoning behind the change -- to prevent bogus reviews. I don't know of a good way to prevent that, but I guess if visitors have more reviews to read through then they should be able to pick out any that don't seem to fit.

I don't want to seem like I'm just griping about what is wrong with C2. There is lot to love about C2 and I think just a few minor changes like this can make it better.

Im tottaly agree. I dont know why is not possible to write a review of the system that you want and when you want. For example i could do a few reviews of systems, that would be very usefull for the users of C2, some of the hidden risk of systems, and others of the hidden gems of systems, but i cant write nothing...

Fully agree - I have three systems, two of which have been at C2 for a year or more, and yet I have had only one person be asked to write a review (even though the systems have typically had from 20-70 subscribers at any given time). Why not allow subscribers to post reviews as they see fit?

"Last trade" info seems also be based on different algorithm from previous version

Last Trade info has not been changed. We have removed Number of Followers from the main system page because it was causing a classic chicken-and-egg problem, causing clustering of subscribers into older systems and hurting newer systems. I'll revisit this decision later, because there are good arguments both for removing and leaving the information.

I have to say that I miss this information both as a vendor and as a subscriber. As a vendor, the page views would give good information as to the level of interest my system was generating. As a subscriber, a high followers count would help confirm the merit of a system I am considering (but too high could also indicate the potential for slippage).

As far as the chicken-and-egg problem, I think the "Popular Systems" lists should instead be "Top-Performing Systems" lists and they be generated from a well-designed screen based solely on performance and not include followers or page views.

Anyone checking in on their performance this morning is going to get a shock. C2 has a lot of bad prices from the Friday night update.

Hi, Fred:

On early Saturday morning, we had a problem with one of our price feeds, which caused erroneous (or zero) prices, and which caused the site to slow down. The issue is now resolved. Sorry about that.

Hi Matthew,

It seemed that the erroneous prices messed up the equity curve on one of my systems:

Please fix this data point when you get a chance.

Thanks.

Hi Matthew,

A while back you had mentioned that the Forums were being reworked. Any status on this? It seems like there is not as much activity on this site now that users are restricted to posting to the C2 Discussions panel.

Yeah, the current forum situation is pretty sucky -- no doubt about it. In truth, not much progress has been made on the development of the revised forum system because our (little) programming team has been working on a couple projects which I think will be more meaningful for C2 users (soon to be announced, soon...)

But the forum stuff is high on the list and I'll try to do what I can to get it revamped as soon as I can.

Wish I had a better answer for you, Gary, but this is the state of things at this time. I'll keep you posted. By all means, feel free to bug/remind me soon if you don't hear more about it. But please know that I agree with you.

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the update. As a software developer from a small company I can definitely relate to having many more projects than available time.

Looking forward to the announcement you mentioned...

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.

Are you sure you want to erase results in you Simulated Broker Account?

    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. 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.

    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.

    Okay, gotcha.

    Did you know... you can change the look and feel of the Dashboard to suit your work style. Click Dashboard Options, above, to change the way the Dashboard looks (for example whether to display a large "My Systems" area at the top of the page) and the way the Dashboard acts (for example, whether to open a pop-up window when you click on a System).
    Did you know... holding down Shift or Ctrl while clicking on a system takes you directly to the System Details page. (No pop-up window is shown.)
