What Index does System Max Profit Track?

The NASDAQ 100 Index. The NASDAQ 100 Index was launched in January 1985 and comprises the largest non-financial companies listed on the NASDAQ stock market. Most of the 100 issues are well known companies, such as Microsoft, Qualcomm, Intel, Cisco Systems, eBay, Amgen, Dell, etc.

What is the basis of System Max Profit Signals?

The trading signals are based on a trading system which was developed in 1999.  The system uses a sophisticated mechanical approach to triggering signals.  In essence, it looks at many different rules and inputs every trading day, then measures risk before issuing a signal.  In trading, it’s all about position risk.

How does one trade the NASDAQ 100 Index?

There are many ways to trade the NASDAQ 100 index.  Because of its wide usage, the NASDAQ 100 is one of the most heavily traded indices on the planet.  Most traders are familiar with the wildly popular NASDAQ 100 Trust (symbol QQQQ, also commonly referred to as the "q's" or "cubes)--an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that tracks the NASDAQ 100 index.  This ETF (symbol QQQQ) is one of the most liquid issues on the NASDAQ. It is probably the most efficient way to trade this index. There are also hundreds of mutual funds that track the NASDAQ 100 index and many more tracking funds popping up regularly. NASDAQ futures contracts are also popular for trading the NASDAQ 100.

How often does the system trigger a signal?

It all depends on market risk. The higher the market risk, the less active the system and vice versa. The best way to gauge the activity would be to look at the Trade History web page.

Where can I find a list of all past signals and results?

The current and most recent system trades are available to subscribers on the Current Signal web page. The rest of the system trades are listed on the Trade History  web page.

Do the results listed include commissions or margin trading?

No. The results listed on the Trade History  and Current Signal  web page do not include commissions and were not obtained by margin trading. We calculate all the returns for our signals based on NASDAQ 100 Index close prices.

How risky is this trading system?

Trading is risky and not suitable for all investors. Please read the Disclaimer  as well as Sign Up Terms  web page for a full Risk Disclosure.

Are the short system signals riskier than the buy signals?

Although System Max Profit looks for balanced short entry signals, shorting in any market generally carries more risk.

Can System Max Profit be used to trade the long side only?

Yes,  the system has both algorithms for buying (longs) and shorting.  To only trade the long algorithm in the system, simply ignore the short signals generated by the system.

My mutual fund account does not allow shorting, what should I do?

Watch for the buy (long) signals and ignore the short signals generated by the system.  

When does the system take a position?

System Max Profit Signals are based on the 4:00 pm ET NASDAQ 100 closing price. System would then take a position on the QQQQ at that time. The exception is for NASDAQ futures which have a regular closing time of 4:15 ET. System positions are taken at regular closing times. Visit the Trading Rules web page

What if one misses the regular closing times?

QQQQ trades in after hours. NASDAQ futures trade on GLOBEX almost 24hrs around the clock.

When System Max Profit takes a position, when is current signal page updated?

When System Max Profit takes or exits a position, the Current Signal web page is updated that day before 9:00 pm ET. 

What is XTR Dev QQQQ System?

The XTR Dev QQQQ System has been profitable every year since inception (2003).  XTR Dev QQQQ is a system that only trades the long side with the objective to beat the "Buy and Hold".
