We all know, or
you should know if you're thinking about futures trading, that trading
commodity futures is a very risky business. In fact you should not even think
about futures trading unless you can afford to lose your investment and possibly
even more than your investment. To understand more about how that could happen,
or if you're new to commodity trading, click here to read more.
Our goal, as
a CTA, is therefore to find ways to minimize this risk as much as
possible, so as to cash in on the potential profits that can also be made. One way we do that, is through the development
of commodity trading systems. That is what we do. And we are one of the few
CTAs you will find, who post their actual trading signals and results on their
website. So if you are looking for
trading systems, you have come to the right place.
Please Note: We do not manage money or operate
commodity pools. We are strictly an advisory newsletter service.
Custom Trading Systems also available.

needs, you will find the system right for you and the current market.

HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY LIMITATIONS, SOME OF
WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL
OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE
ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND
THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE
OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE
GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. 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, ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
