PROCESS

We control the things we can control,
and harness technology to mitigate any cognitive mistakes common to discretionary traders.

The 3 things that matter the most to us are: 1. Price. 2 Price. 3. Price.

We patiently OBSERVE price action of all the instruments in our portfolio and the relationships between them. Prices are the primary return driver and form the basis for all trading decisions including identifying potential new trends and trend failures.

Our models define the prevailing market environment and automatically ORIENTATE the portfolio from the top down accordingly as regimes change.

Volatility, risk vs. reward on open positions, chart structure and other characteristics of the underlying instruments ultimately DECIDE how our risk capital is to be allocated across the instruments traded.

Our automated trading algorithms then ACT upon each signal as needed, removing emotions such as fear and greed.


TRADE EXAMPLES

Here are several example daily charts. We've painted the bars GREEN to indicate a LONG position, RED to indicate a SHORT position and left them BLACK when FLAT/NEUTRAL. The BLUE crosses indicate trade initation and liquidation or partial profit-taking levels.


OVERVIEW

We determine a risk budget for each trade before any position is taken.
We calculate trend channels of multiple speeds.
Potential trends are identified. As instruments exit established patterns, they are acted upon.
At all times a protective stop loss is in place to preserve capital.
If a position is stopped out, our models may re-establish positions as needed.
We employ a dynamic trailing stop at all times to guard against a drawdown and protect gains.
Our models gradually reduce holdings to capture hard-earned profits, or as better trade opportunities present themselves.

THIS PROCESS REPEATS EVERY 10 SECONDS OF EVERY TRADING DAY.
