Spock Matrix Global Trading System – Description from the creator … Spock
The Spock Trading System was developed over a period of two years starting in early 2015. It was developed to simplify trading decisions by providing long, short or flat trading signals, AFTER the market close each day. Annulized return currently averaging 40% per year, although past returns should not be used for forecast returns.
Most retail day traders eventually lose all their trading capital. So the Spock Matrix Global Trading System focuses on extra-day trading signals. Intra-day trading is for the professionals only, as the markets are now driven by high frequency trading (HFT) robot machines, using algorithms. The average trader does not stand a chance against these robots on an intra-day basis. The Spock Matrix Global Trading System has proven over the last 12 months to July 2017, that it consistently outperforms the market, and without any of the stress associated with having to watch the markets constantly. All it requires is the daily closing information. The trading signals are generated from a proprietary matrix of indicators over many time frames that have been extensively back tested and are calculated after the close each day .
The basic tenant of the Spock Matrix Global Trading System is that it is unemotional. No emotional news or opinions are used to enter or exit a trade. The signals are generated AFTER the market close and the trades are entered the next day, during the trading session. No trades are placed in the first hour of market open, as this is amateur hour. Primarily only the major ETFs are used for trading, as there is good liquidity and market depth in these securities. Also, individual company specific factors, such as a bad earnings report, will not have a significant effect on and ETF, as ETFs include hundreds of companies. However, some stocks are included as proxies for specific sectors, such as energy and mining.
Although the system generates numerous signals daily, not all trades are taken. The reason is that some discretion is used to determine which trades have a higher probability of a better return. This decision is based on the chart characteristics and cycle analysis of the sector. For example, if the sector is close to a major resistance line, and a long signal is generated, it is unlikely the trade is entered. If the sector is at the top of an intermediate weekly cycle, it is unlikely a long trade would be entered.
The return over the 12 months to August 2017, in a difficult market, was about 40% on the original capital, or about 40% on an annual basis. This is with no individual trade being more than 5% to 10% of trading capital and avoiding excessive leverage. Generally 1X or 2X leverage is ever used. Therefore, the risks are minimized, so that trading capital is protected, as if one 5% trade does blow up prior to an exit, a maximum loss to total trading capital is never more than 1%. Also, stops are not used, as stop hunting by HFT robots (bots control 60% of the market now) is now common practice in the markets. They will find your stop and take you out, just before the real move begins.
The bottom line is that the Spock Matrix Global Trading System generates consistent profits, with minimum risks, no intra-day trading stress and therefore no emotional input to trading decisions. The trader can place the orders and stay generally detached from the markets, whilst generating significant returns on trading capital, over the medium to long term.
Trade well and prosper.
