What is Collective2 and how can it help you? We exist somewhere between the world of individual traders "going it alone" and the world of managed futures programs and hedge funds that require a quarter-million-dollar minimums and report results once per month.
If you want to offer your customers an "alternative investment" that's really an alternative -- a vehicle in which your customer's money stays in his account, and the customer stays in complete control of trading (while benefiting from other people's genius) -- then look at the C2 Platform.
There are many ways you can use the Collective2 platform. Build your own white-labeled version of our site, at your own URL (johnDoe.collective2.com, for example). Use your financial strategies to pre-select the systems you offer to your clients. Alternately, open up your site to include the whole C2 Universe -- and offer personalized guidance to your clients -- walking them through the process of building a portfolio of systems with their individual needs in mind.
Alternately -- or in addition -- put your own trading methodology on the C2 platform, and offer it only to you clients.
There's no magic formula to make money and protect assets. Collective2 is just a tool -- a gloriously cool, super-advanced tool, to be sure -- but a tool that requires ingenuity and perseverance to use properly. There's so much data, and so many choices, that it can be daunting to a novice. That's why offering your own customized version of Collective2, under your own brand, packaged with your own expertise and hand-holding, creates such a compelling package.
Once you select the trading systems you want your client to trade, you can have them piped automatically into your clients' brokerage accounts. With C2 AutoTrading, all trades are place automatically, at the size levels specified by you or the customer. You or your customers can manage everything on your Web site.
Advanced features include the ability to mix multiple systems in one account, C2's AutoSynchronization Technology (which constantly monitors customer accounts, to make sure they stay "in sync" with the systems they have chosen), and C2's powerful real-time interface, which allows you to "interfere" with AutoTrade accounts, as much as you or your clients like. You have the ultimate control, and are able to set your own stop losses and profit targets (overriding that of the trading system), or can shut down positions early, or increase or decrease trade sizes on a trade-by-trade basis. This level of control ensures that C2 Autotrading offers the best of both worlds: the power of automation, and the finesse of personal control.
Collective2 was founded in 2002, and by any objective measure -- whether company experience, trading volume, technical expertise, or number of offered systems -- C2 is the dominant leader in the field of automated trading systems. Collective2 LLC already works with some of the world's largest FCMs to offer automated trading systems to their brokerage customers. We are NFA registered, and are in full compliance with all applicable U.S. self-regulatory organizations and government regulations.
