iSystems software and platform allow your clients to browse 100s of automated trading systems and have them automatically executed on their accounts. (Think Collective2 or Strategy Runner).
The platform is 100% client driven, with clients logging into their account on the platform, picking which systems they want to have traded, selecting when to start trading, how many units to trade, and if need be - when to stop. This is not letter of direction business and doesn't require broker interaction in order for trades to be placed.
To stay firm on rates, Commissions are set at the platform level and the same across all brokers and firms, with rates ranging from $15 all in for e-mini S&Ps up to 25 Euros (about $32) for systems trading DAX (which trade during our night/early morning).
A Broker Portal allows you to track everything your clients are doing, from which systems they are trading, their daily, monthly, and lifetime P/L, to open positions, to open orders on the platform.
Risk Control is handled on the platform, with the platform automatically disabling systems if a client's balance falls under the required minimum for that system.
The minimum investments range from $1,000 to $25,000, making it a reasonable entry point for clients. Most clients tend to fund with around $15,000 and trade 3 to 5 systems at one time, with each system doing about 12 trades (30 contracts) per month, meaning typical volume of about 50 R/Ts per month.
IMPORTANT RISK DISCLOSURE
Futures trading is complex and carries the risk of substantial losses. It is not suitable for all investors. The ability to withstand losses and to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can adversely affect investor returns.
The returns for trading systems listed throughout this website are hypothetical in that they represent returns in a model account. The model account rises or falls by the average single contract profit and loss achieved by clients trading actual money pursuant to the listed system's trading signals on the appropriate dates (client fills), or if no actual client profit or loss available - by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by the system's trading signals on that day in real time (real-time) less slippage, or if no real time profit or loss available - by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by running the system logic backwards on backadjusted data (backadjusted).
Note that the Client Fill Trades are reported across all clients utilizing the platform, across multiple brokers, and are not based solely on the performance of accounts at this brokerage.
The hypothetical model account begins with the initial capital level listed, and is reset to that amount each month. The percentage returns reflect inclusion of commissions, fees, slippage, and the cost of the system. The monthly cost of the system is subtracted from the net profit/loss prior to calculating the percentage return.
If and when a trading system has an open trade, the returns are marked to market on a daily basis, using the backadjusted data available on the day the computer backtest was performed for backtested trades, and the closing price of the then front month contract for real time and client fill trades. For a trade which spans months, therefore, the gain or loss for the month ending with an open trade is the marked to market gain or loss (the month end price minus the entry price, and vice versa for short trades).
The actual percentage gains/losses experienced by investors will vary depending on many factors, including, but not limited to: starting account balances, market behavior, the duration and extent of investor's participation (whether or not all signals are taken) in the specified system and money management techniques. Because of this, actual percentage gains/losses experienced by investors may be materially different than the percentage gains/losses as presented on this website.
Please read carefully the CFTC required disclaimer regarding hypothetical results below. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN; IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK OF ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT TRADING RESULTS.
