System Developers Opportunities
A pioneer in system trading, Striker invites system developers to submit their stock, futures, or forex trading systems for consideration in our menu of systems and for publication in the Striker Report. Our in-house economic team will evaluate the system to ensure that it can be auto-traded and conforms to Striker's standards of credibility and realiability. The evaluation process will focus on system performance, drawdowns, slippage, and the profit factor. Part of our coherent policy, Striker has no in-house systems. System developers that submit their systems to Striker can be confident that their intellectual property will be guarded. Since the late 1990s, Striker provides a "non-disclosure" agreement in writing for all System Developers, CTAs, or emerging CTAs. To learn about this service, and to submit your system, please contact William Gallwas.

I.B. Broker Network
Are you a broker surfing our web site and trying to learn how you can offer systems as products to your clients? Well, you don't need to sweat and learn to compete against Striker, you can actually work with Striker to expand your product line to benefit your clients. Only Striker, with our unique coherent policies and international broker team, can open up and share our knowledge with other brokers. By working together, Striker can execute systems for other brokers and then "give-up" the trades to the appropriate clearing firm of the participating broker. This might sound radical that Striker would help competing brokers but we have been doing this for years. The secret to our success is properly educating the participating brokers about the products so that they in turn can fairly teach their clients about the pros and cons with system trading. Moreover, because Striker fully discloses its operations with participating brokers, a clean relationship of trust develops with Striker focusing on service and execution, while the participating broker focuses on growing his or her own business by having the Striker menu to offer. Our I.B. Broker Network is also successful because Striker is a member of the Managed Funds Association, National Introducing Brokers Association, and registered as a brokerage firm with the CFTC since 1991. As an "independent" broker, Striker is free to work with any clearing firm, so this process of "give-up" is smooth. To learn more, please contact Financial & Operations Principal, William Gallwas.

Disclaimer The risk of trading can be substantial and each investor and/or trader must consider whether this is a suitable investment. Past performance, whether actual or indicated by simulated historical tests of strategies, is not necessarily indicative of future results. Striker is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA"), the Managed Funds Association ("MFA"), and the National Introducing Broker Association ("NIBA"). Striker is registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC"), and was formerly registered with the Securities Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Additionally, Striker is a former member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation ("SIPC"). FINRA is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities business in the United States. Please read Striker Disclosure Statement for the additional disclosure.

Futures Trading Disclaimer:
Transactions in securities futures, commodity and index futures and options on futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract, meaning that transactions are heavily "leveraged". A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit: this may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the clearing firm to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit. For accounts that are deemed abandoned or inactive, Striker may charge up to a $35.00 monthly inactivity fee, depending on the clearing firm where the account is held. If the Net Liquidity of an account reaches a Daily Loss Limit of 80%, open positions will attempt to be liquidated. Clients are responsible for monitoring their positions and are financially responsible for any losses generated by open positions in the account. Striker retains its right to liquidate positions in any account, at its sole discretion, with no forewarning.

Forex Trading Disclosure:
Trading cash Foreign Exchange ("FX") contracts carries the same high level of risk as futures trading (Futures Trading Disclaimer). However cash FX, unlike futures FX contracts that are regulated by the Commodity Trading Futures Commission, are not regulated by any governmental agency. In addition, because there is not a central clearing house for cash FX transactions, there is also a counterparty risk for each contact. For additional information please read the National Futures Association ("NFA") August 2003 "Investor Alert" found on the Striker Disclaimer Page.
