The beauty of our automated trading system

After development, backtesting, and some tweaking, initial live testing of our new automated S&P futures trading system has gone very well. The system made nice profits last week shorting and also made nice profits today long -- the beauty of the system is you don't need to predict which way the market will go, as it reacts to price either way. It doesn't get caught getting squeezed on the wrong side, but rather just goes with the flow.

We will continue live testing in coming weeks/months through different market situations, and plan to expand the testing to various commodities and equities. The system's unique use of both traditional and proprietary indicators in a number of different strategies has worked great on S&P futures so far, with high returns on very low risk, but we'd like to see consistent success in various markets and time periods before further rollout.

The big move days last Monday and today were especially rewarding for our system. Since our previously mentioned indicators correctly pointed to these big move days coming (as they did the big move on April 20 and other days), we plan to activate strategies to take advantage of these expected big move days when our indicators anticipate them.
