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.

1CMany years ago when I worked as a research director for one of the major Wall Street brokerage firms, one of my job responsibilities included evaluating commodity trading advisors (CTAs). One of the statistics that CTAs were required by the regulatory authorities to report was the percentage of client accounts that closed with a profit. I made the striking discovery that the majority of closed accounts showed a net loss for virtually all of the CTAs I reviewed 13 even those who had no losing years! The obvious implication was that investors were so bad in their investment entries and exits that most of them lost money 13 even when they chose a consistently winning CTA! This poor timing reflects the common investor tendency to commit to an investment after it has done well and to liquidate an investment after it has done poorly. Although these types of investment decisions may sound perfectly natural, even instinctive, they are also generally wrong. 1D

Thanks for the quote, GSP Trader, and to you too,T SH, for your guess regarding the 39,993 views.

Your quote and guess still do not change the facts of the low drawdown, low cost, high Calmar ratio, good profit factor, etc.

I will invest with confidence in systems, using the facts I find important, regardless the number of views and Mr. Schwager's writings.

The Schwwager quote was directed toward human nature, not any specific system. Personally, I like to see at least 100 trades, and that doesn't mean 100 buys in a bull market.

Let me set the record straight.

The morning after L.Hebert's post, GOLD GENERATOR was positioned steadily on the top the dashboard. In the afternoon, when I logged into C2, to read a pm from Mr. LA, I noticed that right next to my GOLD GENERATOR, there was a crashed system, called GOLD GENERATOR1.

Mr. LA had accused me of running up the views of his crashed systems, and therefore I had to face the consequences.
I wrote a post, addressed to Matthew Klein asking him to intervene, and, immediately, LA had renamed his GOLD GENERATOR1 to Nathan H.

I believe all the above mentioned posts are still there.
Therefore, the 40000 views of GOLD GENERATOR were run up by Mr. LA himself for his own purposes, like to put my GOLD GENERATOR next to his crashed GOLD GENERATOR1.
Later on that night, Mr. LA had sent me his pm of apology.
All copies of Mr. LA's PM's are available.

Enough said.

Subject:Will new TradeMonster support C2?
Posted by:

I just happened to notice that TradeMonster is merging with OptionsHouse. This might be good news for US Gen3 ETF traders. However, can we be confident that the new TM OH will continue to support C2 trading?

TM and OH have the lowest margin rates and highest reputations after Interactive Brokers.

I am in the process of arranging "Trades Own System" certification for two systems. I believe in broker diversification. So I was planning to trade one at TM and another at MBT. Vision is not to be taken seriously, in my opinion. But MBT is marginal, resting on a bygone reputation, not bothering to keep its software up to date. And now TM OH is certain to result in a very sound company. So I no longer see any point in bothering with MBT.

TM OH willl be the only game in town for the US-based Gen3 ETF trader--if it remains C2 compatible! It is possible that OptionsHouse does not like C2 because it is not C2 compatible. So it seems possible that the new entity could jettison C2 compatibility.

Does anyone have any news on this? Thank you.

Searching The Grid for a profitable low cost gold trading system with a high Calmar ratio, I have found GOLD GENERATOR to have a higher Calmar at the moment.
And the fact that its maximum drawdown is only 6.8%, makes the system very attractive, especially for a smaller capital.

Other stats are competitive as well.

Granted, it is a new system with 19 trades. Still, its trading record shows realistic low risk profitable consistency over the last three months.

I am better off safe than sorry.

It is number one on the grid because "There have been 39,993 page views of this system by registered users" , ofcourse that number is wrong or a glitch , or it could be a c2pro system which if thats the case then it will count the developer's visits as well .

Dear Matthew,

I am sure you are aware that the system now called GOLD GENERATOR1, previously called Goldmetre A and later, Killed System 2, was created by a system developer whose name is known as LA on C2.
This is just to let you know that LA is not affiliated with me and my system development efforts in any way, shape or form.
It appears, however, that, as of today, LA has chosen to imply that he is somehow affiliated with my system GOLD GENERATOR, by calling his system GOLD GENERATOR1.

Please help us to avoid potential confusion and keep LA's C2 identity separate from mine.

Thank you,
Nathan

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.

    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.)
