TIME TO SERVE IT UP
Here is the table of the summary of trades in the Blind Man's Bonds since I first announced it here. You can see it does include a current open trade which was a long triggered on last night's open after yesterday's short was exited profitably. I think with this out of sample success, we have something that is viable. I am going to take the suggestion a few of you have had to offer this up now as a subscription service. The cost is going to be $60 per month. For those interested please email me at email@example.com. The way this will work is that I will email out the signals every day during the afternoon, so you will be prepared when the night session opens. Many of these trades are entered at the openings. You can always try to "price" them, meaning if you miss the open enter them on limit orders or some other way. In doing so, you may make more on the marginal ones. However, you will also miss some of the good ones since they tend to just roll right from the opening.
There are no promises to be made on these. I have done the best safeguarding I can by what I have done here which I will review now. If you recall I mentioned this system in April and explained how I put it together. It was a combination of the best patterns from my old system I traded exclusively for years, and one year came in 2nd in the Robbins contest, and some newer patterns I have developed. I did find that when the electronic markets started, some of the old patterns became ineffective. However, many of them have now stood the test of 20 years. Once I combined all of this, I launched it here live to see how it would do out of sample. Many things do great in testing, then fall flat on their face live. This has happened to me a few times over the years. In this case the first couple of weeks were crappy, a couple of small wins, one decent sized loss. Typical for this type of approach or any other one for that matter. Then it has gotten back on track. The win percentage is a bit lower than what the testing showed, but the amount of dollars won for just this brief time is pretty good for something like this.
For the sake of accounting, I am just going to have people come in effective at the beginning of the month, so I know when to include people in the emails and when not to. If I find a broad enough interest, I will re-launch my web site and have it all done there, and will accommodate mid month beginning and end enrollments. You will be able to log in and get to a page that has the orders. You will be able to use Pay pal to pay etc.. Initially, please just contact me at my email address if you are interested, and we will get started. You can also call me if you would like to discuss this at 760-734-6927. This is my home phone number so please be aware of the time, I live in San Diego, which is PST and my wife does not wake up until 8 am typically, even though I am awake at 5 am. Please don't call until after 8 am. I am going to set the minimum at 10 meaning I have to have at least 10 people interested to do this. I have no idea what the level of interest is on this in here.
There are no promises on this at all or any representation this will continue to do what it has done since April. I can only promise it will not be the same, it may be better or it may be worse. Systems trading is a different animal, you are completely removing yourself from the equation. You just follow the rules and take the trades as they are spit out. If you try to cherry pick the trades, you may get lucky and miss a loss, but inevitably you will under perform the system as a whole. This will fall on you if you do that. There are not going to be any refunds, it is cheap to begin with. Just for legal purposes I will have a disclaimer in the emails to cover myself so be prepared for that. I will likely be in the most of the trades, but I am not promising that. I have to trade a bit differently than I normally would due to what has happened. As a result risk parameters at any given moment might restrict my ability to take a particular trade. In summary, either call me or email me if you are interested.
As for today, I was looking at potentially shorting the Naz or Russell had we broken yesterday's lows, but that seems unlikely at this point. Due to how far that travel range is, I will do it on a bounce if we get down there. I was also looking at a buy in Sugar and potentially shorting the Euro, but those did not make it through my final filters.
I am supposedly getting a call from the President of Trade Station following up on that situation with them I mentioned the other day. It appears to be an internal glitch having nothing at all to do with security of funds, but in light of current events they are addressing this fully with me. I will summarize the discussion here after I speak with him in case anyone is considering going there. I don't want to misrepresent what may or may not be going on there.
