   Our Trading Systems

We provide access to the following:
  • IMPA Position Trading System - Off Floor longer-term futures and stock index trading system.
  • Swing Trading Approaches, systems and methods - Intermediate term trading strategies, systems and methods.
  • Intra-day S&P and Emini trading (These strategies are complex, requiring live intra-day data. This service is an extended service and for the more experienced trader).
All of the trading systems and indicators include methods and specific strategies for containing risk, managing profits and managing losses, thus in the long run effectively maximizing our returns!

What you need to know:

Our systems are different than any other known. We combine fundamental data, unique statistical studies and proprietary technical indicators in a very unique fashion that produces consistent reliable results.

To effectively trade the market's you must find a good system and learn it. Successful commodity trading on a consistent basis is in fact, very hard work. Any business takes time to learn, this one is no different. Tracking the markets requires much more than just tracking price or price patterns. You must also track and understand the players, and always know who is holding the majority of longs and shorts in each market. This is the basis of our IMPA system; it is the core of how the system evaluates the fundamentals of supply and demand in each market. It is also a crucial factor of our statistical evaluation in each market.

All of our systems also include specific (documented) management programs (rules and methods) that include:

  • Pre-defined stops (before entry) - Documentation on how these are established.
  • Adjustable trailing stops on 100% (post entry) - These stops may NEVER increase risk. They can only decrease it. Discussed fully.
  • 50% rule or rule of the 3rds - This rule (or method) enables the trader to capture a portion of their profits (in a profitable position) while retaining a portion of the original position. This is critical in position management. One of the basic mistakes often made by those new at trading is that they tend to take profits way to early and take losses way to late. Using our systems and methods, members are able to hold profitable positions so that they can grow, while protecting profits. In addition, members learn to dump losing positions using pre-determined (logical) stops. We reinforce these strategies (particularly our management strategies) in the daily reports.

    When we take our 50% profit, we typically adjust our stops to breakeven or better on our remaining 50%. This strategy helps prevent good trades from turning bad and substantially reduces our exposure to risk.

    Our philosophy is that we are "Risk Takers". Our job is to take calculated risks based on the data. There are times when the market is very likely (high probability) to move in a particular direction. Our tools help us identify these times so that we can take advantage of them. We manage our risks tightly and appropriately, and as a result, many traders do very well with the systems. They tend to profit (when they follow the program and methods).
  • Adjustable trailing stops on 50% (post initial 50% profit)
* We do not use profit objectives on our remaining 50% but may use objectives on our initial 50%.

To help you get started, we have broken down the essentials of our trading systems.
