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.

System with too much risk, continuously positions experienced a big drawdown to earn money, the owner of the system is always moving down the stops losses.
I think the system only earn money because we was in a uptrend, when this change the account can be blood up without any problem.
I use this system and "the beattles" of the same owner, and both are too risky, systems than risk more than 10% even sometimes 20% of your account for a single position in the end lost money.

I am a new subscriber - not even two months yet.
This system is definitely not for the faint of heart, but no trading is.
if you let go of your trading ideas and execute the trading signals without modifying or "improving" the system - it's profitable and very exciting when it wins.
I hope I have the guts to follow every trading signal in the future to experience the full potential of the system.I rate it high because of the final results, and that's what counts.

A few questions:
1. Can anyone explain why a C2 score would fluctuate back and forth from 70 to as high as 97, which is happening with a recent system I have developed?

2. Awhile back there was talk about changing the weighted structure of the formula for generating a C2 score. Has this been implemented yet?

3. Does the C2 score determine the placement of a system in the Popular Systems (in my case Futures) page.

Hello. Yes, the whole "pay-only-if-preceding-period-was-profitable" business model is being phased out (new systems cannot choose it, old systems that already chose it can continue to use it). So going forward we have simplified things: You can set up your system to charge on a monthly basis, with an optional free trial period at the beginning of the subscription.

Why are you removing this feature? So I can pay for a system that also loses money? I'm sure I'm not alone when I say it's only fair to pay for a system that is making money.

It was removed to enhance site simplicity, and to reduce compliance/regulatory issues. We still allow system developers to offer free trial periods for their systems.

Just make it part of the Grid. Lots of folks keep asking for this to be added as part of the system descriptions. Just add a column on the Grid for current paid subscribers.

suggest to show number of paid subscribers only(both "all time" and "current"). to show number including trial subscribers which quit before pay is very misleading.

my guess is that what "Auto Traders(all time)" shows now is the number including the trial subscribers. is that right, MK?

I don't think it is helpful by showing the number of subscribers as this would lead to a dangerous scenario of the herd syndromes. Just look at how this affected subscribers who picked the YZ income fund due to its popularity. Subscribers should make their selection decision based on C2's massive systems performance statistics.

The information may drive a "herd mentality", but that is a somewhat disparaging comment about the subscribers here at C2. I assume that everyone here can make up their own minds.

A system doing well will draw subscribers, but the number of subscribers does not relate to whether or not a system blows up - that is usually due to other factors like changing the system rules or a sudden market change.

Why do you want to know how many subscribers a system has?

Are you going to join a system just because it is popular?

Are you going to avoid a system just because it is not popular?

What if it is a great system for you? You are going to pass on it because it is not popular?

The info is not a useful metric for subscribers. It is not going to help keep people out of bad systems. It will keep people out of good systems, if they are not popular.

There are very few systems on C2 that have a good number of paid subscribers.

If system developers wants to put subscriber information in their system's descriptions, they can do that.

I have been an active contributing member on a popular trading website for many years and provided guidance to many traders particularly those who are new to trading. One common behavior I observed was that many new traders had a tendency to find a short-cut to profits rather than investing in the hard work of doing researches and experiments before they trade live. Providing the paid subscribers information could be dangerous to those who prefer to take a shortcut for their decisions making rather than learning to digest the systems performance data and understanding the inherent risks associated to a method before they invest their hard-earned money. Just my 2 cents. Happy trading !

Systems To AutoTrade

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.
