Hiking Cycle In an effort to stave off inflation the Federal Reserve began its current hiking cycle earlier this year. The rate of increase has been remarkable.

Our Trading System

We have created a proprietary trading system. The idea is to steer people toward stocks that tend to perform best over time with more predictability and fewer harrowing drawdowns. We have developed this system over the course of many years and have subjected it to rigorous backtesting and statistical analysis. No system is perfect, and we certainly don't claim perfection, but our results speak for themselves.

We performed a rigorous statistical analysis on our trading system. We bootstrapped 1000 instances using 20, 30, and 40 random stocks from the S&P 500 list and calculated maximum drawdown from inception (1990). Below are the results of these tests:


20 random stocks bootstrapped 1000 times
Leverage:None
Annualized return:24.12%
Average maximum drawdown for entire portfolio:29.31%
Standard deviation:6.61
95% Confidence Interval:16.35, 42.27


30 random stocks bootstrapped 1000 times
Leverage:None
Annualized return:24.16%
Average maximum drawdown for entire portfolio:27.13%
Standard deviation:5.02
95% Confidence Interval:17.28, 36.98


40 random stocks bootstrapped 1000 times
Leverage:None
Annualized return:24.15%
Average maximum drawdown for entire portfolio:26.14%
Standard deviation:4.19
95% Confidence Interval:17.93, 34.35
Furthermore, we tested an equal weighting of $10,000 invested in every S&P 500 stock as it's presently constituted. All gains were considered to be reinvested.

The importance of all this is that there is safety in numbers. Even during the depths of the great financial crisis of 2008 a diversified portfolio using our system still performed well. There are no future guarantees, of course, but this exercise helps to give you an idea of what to expect in terms of performance and drawdown. Drawdown is calculated from every new all-time high.

How does it work?

The trading system is a black box. It generates trading signals for stocks at the close of every market day for trades to be placed the following market day at the open. Subscribers get these daily signals for up to 50 stocks at a time. Consider giving our trading system a try. We think your results will be dramatically improved. Watch a quick video to see how it works.
