Get Started

Open an Account

Once you open your account, all you need to do is activate a strategy and it will run day in and day out until you deactivate it, doing the hard work for you. You can monitor your performance, make real time changes to your portfolio of strategies as needed, and the iSystems platform will automatically do the rest, giving you accurate information on your fills and account status, leaving human error out of the equation.

4 Simple Steps to go Live after you Open your Account

  1. Explore trading strategies Go to “Explore Systems” to browse through the hundreds of trading strategies and whose performance is tracked in real time. Sort the strategies by different criteria such as return, drawdown, and minimum investment by clicking on each column. The iSystems platform allows you to analyze, compare, and choose the strategies that best fit your investment strategy, available capital, and risk tolerance.
  2. Subscribe Once you find a system that you wish to trade, you must first “purchase” a license to that system by clicking on the locked icon and selecting ‘Buy License’. The “purchase” of a license is nothing more than agreeing to an ongoing periodic cost (usually monthly). Upon clicking the button listing the price per month to purchase the license, a confirmation ‘pop-up’ appears confirming the details of the purchase for you, and authorizing Optimus Futures FCM to pay the lease fee out of your trading account.
  3. Activate strategy Once a user has unlocked a system, a “plus sign” icon appears. Clicking on that icon allows users to “Activate the Strategy” for LIVE trading. Upon activation, select the number of futures contracts you would like traded for your account, and we’ll start trading that strategy’s signals for you right away. Want to change something, you can deactivate or modify the number of contracts at any point by simply clicking on the strategy modify button.
  4. Trade hands free When you activate one of our fully automated trading strategies, we will begin trading the signals on your account immediately, and continue doing so without any further instruction from you. You can monitor your performance as frequently or infrequently as you like to make any needed adjustments to your portfolio and iSystems will do the rest, giving you real time accurate information on your fills, performance per strategy you select, and more.
