Automated Trading Systems

Automated System Trading

To be an informative futures trader, you have to understand different market trends, know all the factors that affect the markets, and follow both long term and short term price shifts caused by technical or fundamental news. This is not an easy task. While some traders choose to dedicate their lives to studying these different approaches to market cycles and price movements, some choose to participate in the future markets by letting an automated futures trading strategy make the trading decisions for them.

With Optimus Automated Trading System Accounts, you can gain access to the iSystems platform available via Gain Capital and Striker Systems available via ADMIS and let a fully automated trading system auto trade directly to your account.

What exactly is an automated trading system?

An automated trading system is a computer program that follows a given market algorithm for you, every minute of the day. They are designed to look for trends, analyze data and apply specific mathematical / technical formulas which in turn generates signals - buy and sell orders - to go long or short. Automated Trading Systems are utilized by traders that wish to use objective entry and exit criteria based on parameters that have been determined by historical testing on quantifiable data.

What are the benefits of systems trading?

  • SAVE TIME: When your trades are automatically executed, you don't have to spend any more time studying charts, formulating trading strategies, and placing orders. You should consider automation if you lack the time for discretionary trading but would like to take advantage of another traders proven methodology. You can still get the benefits of diversifying your portfolio with futures, and have more time attending to the other priorities in your life.
  • ELIMINATE STRESS: When you are making your own trading decisions, it is easy to be swayed by fear, greed and other emotional biases that may cloud your judgment. With an automated trading system, you will be taking a disciplined, unemotional and systematic approach to trading. A system trades only when its method tells it to and it does not change the number of contracts as it trades (beyond your set parameters). Therefore, the emotional side of trading does not affect your decision-making.
  • PERFORMANCE: Trading systems can help you meet your investment objectives since all of your decisions are based on formulas developed by an experienced trader. Automated trading systems are algorithmic, and behave according to the formulas and input programmed into them. They are developed by testing against historical data. Systems are designed to exploit price inefficiencies in the market and take advantage as soon as one has been detected. The “making money” part is a result of the system’s ability to predict the price action in the right direction.
  • SAVE MONEY: When following a trading system, you don't have to subscribe to a costly market quote or data feed, or have a robust computer to handle trading software. In addition, our fees are very reasonable, and can be deducted from your account.
  • There is a substantial risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
