There is no performance data for this program

A wide range of markets are traded to provide diversification but those markets which frequently have large overnight moves are avoided. Diversification is required for two main reasons. First, trading many markets tends to reduce the daily account balance fluctuations to a reasonable level. Second, by trading markets representing nearly all market groups a big move or a hot market is usually not missed because that market group would be represented in the trading portfolio. The combination of diversification and high volume short term trading produces minimum account balance drawdowns compared to other systems developed and tested by this trading advisor. Markets traded include a balance of Metals, Currencies, Financial instruments, Grains, Meats, Petroleum, S & P 500 Index, Coffee, Cocoa, and Sugar. To minimize risk, occasionally some markets are not traded for a period of time when special situations exist, such as petroleum products after the invasion of Kuwait and through the end of the Gulf War.
