System Description: This system was developed in 2009 because of the volatility of 2008. Too late to capitalize on 2008 of course, but developed for the purpose of capitalizing on future volatile markets. It can also usually trade with acceptable profits in less volatile markets. Too little volatility and trading shuts off. The system seeks short term gains in markets that are moving. The system shoots for outsized gains in good months/years to significantly more than offset the costs of trading during weaker months/years. The 10 years 2009 backward are good hypothetically in composite, and the 10 years 2009 forward are good hypothetically in composite. I have provided this system to Striker at this time because I believe that stock indices will now be volatile at least during 2019 and 2020, and the system will therefore have fertile grounds to outperform average volatility years. Nevertheless, in my 30 years in the trading systems arena, I have seen multiple great looking systems from name brand system providers slowly or suddenly disappoint without discernible reason. Consequently, I can’t promise you that this system will continue to work as in the past and that we will realize the outsized gains I am expecting. But now is the time I developed this system for, and I am going to trade it now and share it now, via Striker. I will provide some manual oversight to the automated trading, such as bypassing or exiting early a trade that would be in the market when a report or announcement is due that would likely disrupt normal market action, and in various other situations where my 30 years of trading/systems experience indicates that manual intervention for the purpose of risk mitigation would be prudent. Some people prefer strictly automated, but my hybrid approach (primarily automated, but with a little manual) is your only option with my systems know only what I told them 10 years ago whereas I know what is going on in the world today and can manually balance (a) reducing risk, at the possible cost of reduced gain, with (b) “Damn the torpedoes, (system) full speed ahead”. This system is a variation of my “Bull & Bear S&P500” system. This version requires higher volatility, is in the market less than B&B, has much closer profit targets, and larger stops. The closer profit target enables locking in some gain while waiting and hoping the B&B profit target will be reached later today or tomorrow. The larger stop prevents being stopped out as easily as B&B in what might be a winning trade if provided room to work. This is not broad diversification from B&B, but enough that if one system has a nonproductive year, the other system is hypothetically historically more likely than not to have a winning year.

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").

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.
