I have some doubts on this system. It started its operation when Apple was trading @ 376$ and at the moment of writing the price is 616%, so there is an increment of 64% that is almost the same return of this system (75% annual). So, a simple buy and hold strategy would have produced the same results, but this is not the point I wish to highlight. I see that the systems has much more losers than winners and in this last 30 days we entered into a a drawdown period where the system went long when was time to go short and viceversa. I have lost a bit of confidence in this system right now, so I hope the developer will share with its subscriber base some thoughts. Regards
Thank you for your feed back.
The system is performing as expected. The profitable trade percentage is 46% therefore the 'much more losers than winners' comment seems a little unfair.
I am really not sure if I can say anything that will gain your confidence back. If you have lost confidence in the system recently because of the recent percentage draw down of 5-6% in Oct, please look at results for Aug, Nov and Dec 2011 and readjust your expectations.
To help with the issues you have raised I will consider them further over the weekend, and draft an e-mail to all subscribers with more details on how the system was developed .
Sound system. Nice steady equity growth curve. Trading AAPL exclusively at the moment; presume this is subject to change. Good stats: win/loss, profit factor, Sharpe ratio all excellent. Drawdowns are well contained. Stops and target orders placed at time of entry on all new positions. Note for those trading within IRAs--system takes both long and short entries, so returns in a long-only account will vary accordingly.
Thank you for your feed back.
Your comment on IRA's is particularity interesting to me as I am currently working on a long only stock portfolio system.
