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.

Was there an outage around 5AM EST this morning? The trade signals from my Ninjatrader platform got rejected from C2. It lasted for a good hour.

Invalid Order
I receiver this error message when I want to pass my order.

Problem with signal
Unable to STO 504 SPY - Current account buying power is $49,972.10, cash is $49,972.10; equity=$0.00; currMarginUsed=$0.00; proposed trade would lower by $50,069.88 (C2 Err Code: PreMarginCheck)

Don t understand why ?

Thanks
Subject:Margin and buying power

You don't have enough buying power in your Model Account. At the time you entered the order, C2 treated symbol SPY as requiring $198.69 of Buy Power per share (i.e. half of the assumed price of the instrument; implying buying on 50% margin).

Reduce your proposed trade quantity and try again.

The margin is way too high. I cannot have more than 2x leverage trading SPY ? I belive it s a way too pessimist assumption. Not mentionning that the stopis entered at the same than the entrylimit orders and that the position is intraday.

Is there a way to change this?

Thanks

No. We require conservative margin use in your model account. If you have autotraders, they can jack up real-life leverage however they want/are allowed.

"The dollar may have peaked for now with markets likely to position carefully ahead of the Fed 19s 3-day summit next week, commencing Thursday, at Jackson Hole, Wyo., a venue that in that past has served as a launching pad for what 19s around the bend for bank policy. That can spell substantial catalysts for currencies, namely the dollar,"

Please refer this order number 89134359 for ChampionTrader-ES system.
System sold 2 contracts. 2 of my subscribers are at 50% scaling, so 1 contract should have executed for them. Please click on red mark and verify that 3 contracts were sold for both of them.

Still, they have this position open. Please advise how to rectify and why this happened? Why has the auto-sync feature not corrected their position by now?

John:

Your traders are perfectly in sync with your system. Closing orders are executed on a percentage basis, so if your system executes an order to close 100% of a current position (i.e. go flat), then your followers will execute whatever trade is required to go flat in their own individual accounts. In this case, at the instant your Model Account filled, they were long 3, so they sold 3 to go flat, in order to stay in sync with your system's Model Account.

My advice is that as a system developer, you can just focus on running your model account and trying to perform as well as you can, and allow C2's AutoTrade technology (or your subscribers who are using it) to worry about keeping broker accounts in sync with your Model Account. In this case, everything worked fine.

Hi Matthew,
Thanks for the explanation. I get it now.

Reading your explanation, now I understand what happened. Basically, my subscribers had 3 open contracts in their account. I sold 4 on model account at 414pm EST (they being at 50% scaling) sold 2, so they were left with 1 open contract. Within next 10-15 seconds, I sent another order to close the remaining 100% position. So, I sent in an order to sell 2 contracts on model account, but instead of 1 contract being executed at 50% scaling, 3 contracts got executed on subscriber's account.

Basically, what happened is that since these orders were sent closely in time, C2 thought my subscribers still have a position of 3 contracts.

So, the learning is:
1) Do not use the order to close 100% of position, right after executing another trade. Its safer to maintain a gap of at least 1 minute between other orders and the order to close 100% of position.
2) If you want to send orders near about simultaneously, then use exact quantities to sell/buy instead of using close 100% of position.

Thanks
John

I do not completely agree with the lessons you have gleaned.

I think my message has been (and continues to be): Run your system to the best of your ability and don't worry about AutoTrading - C2 takes care of things and keeps broker accounts in sync with your system.

If subscribers want to trade at a scaling percentage that is not 100%, and you leg into and out of positions, then there will be rounding issues, but the AutoSync process will handle those.

Ultimately, it's the subscribers' call whether to trade at a non-100% scaling multiple. There may be reasons they want to, and they may be willing to have less fidelity to your Model Account in exchange for scaling sizes that they prefer.

So, in summary, don't worry about AutoTrading. Just worry about trading your Model Account on C2.

I am not so sure about just automatic discounting winning percentage. I think it has something to do with the temperament of the trader. If it is your nature to be comfortable with a large winning percent than that may be the type of signal to trade. If you are most at ease with trading a lower winning percent and have the nerve to wait for your winners than that would be the way to trade for yourself. Picking the correct trading style for your personality is most important and is normally very valuable.

Trading another traders belief in what is correct if it does not fit with your understanding can be a disaster.

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.

    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.

    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.
