if you are a CPO or CTA and are interested in Man Financial, try calling Matt Dougherty or Scott Kebby .. they are at the trading desk in Chicago, but they might be doing CPOs and CTAs only ... if you are strictly retail, you might have to go through the main line.

I have just given instruction to transfer out my T Bills. I have decided to leave cash and open positions there until the waters settle.

My system works well on equity indices as well as commodities and other futures, and I'm fairly long-term (in my opinion). I trade each market 0 to 5 times a year, 5 being on the high side (whipped), the average is 1 trade per year. GR :P I agree with Ghostrider. I also test the equity index future...

Thanks TK. I included the same report with $50 factored in for trade costs. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks Shane TK implies that you include slippage and commission, NOT "trade costs". your trade costs are fixed, and do not vary with size. dollar slippage varies with size, where % slippage is ...

Re: Just short the E-Mini NASDAQ instead?

Why not? In a Bear Market, why hunt for short candidates when you can short the E-Mini NASDAQ futures and arguably (if you are right on your call) make more money anyway. Beats screening 10,000 stocks if you ask me comments? do you do a historical test on that and verify that is true? is the invers...

Re: Stop Order Acceptance

We ran into an issue where a user reported that some of the stop orders as generated by VeriTrader couldn't be accepted directly by their broker. In particular, the broker rejected trades where the close had already penetrated the stop. For example, let's say you are long Crude and want to place yo...

The season of giving

The CBOT has the spirit of Christmas in them. Or, they like the Amazon and Overstock.com business models. Or maybe both~

This is the first time I see a financial exchange sale. Anyone see one before?

Re: Another Look at portfolio construction

But what we do know is twofold .. the more markets you are in the more likely you are to catch a trend and the more markets you are in the bigger your drawdown is likely to be .. its an interesting tradeoff .. Chris "We" do know that for sure? I do not know. Drawdown (in the most basic form) is the...

I agree with you Jake: it is no guarantee of course that this is the beginning.

That might surprise a lot of peopl...

continuously linked futures data sources

Hi Everyone, Besides Pinnacle Data, where can I subscribe to continuously-linked futures contracts with EOD updates? Most of the vendors charge in the 400-1500 USD per month range, so I'm looking for something cheaper. Pinnacle is 12/month and although the roll dates are fixed, at least it's good en...

One of the difficulties I have had playing in No-Limit Texas Hold'em tournaments is the amount of "luck" present in the game. More "luck" inherent in the game than people realize. As an example, let's say you are dealt pocket aces (AA), and your opponent goes "all-in" before the flop. Your best mov...
