Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Performance Numbers
Are these actual performance numbers from someone ONLY trading your algorithms?
Yes. This individual has 4 accounts opened with Gain Capital. The first account (shown above) is trading the Swing Trader. The second account is trading the S&P Crusher and is not shown (as of now). The other two accounts began trading The Wave Trader and The Pro Trader mid April 2019. The Crusher, Wave and Pro Trader account information can be shared upon request. Just let us know you’d like to see the performance of the other three packages so that you can compare them.
Can you share your actual statements?
Our attorneys have assured us that we are allowed to share statements as long as they are reflective of actual accounts and we include the proper disclaimers. In fact, we used to show statements online with personal information redacted.
Unfortunately, Gain Capital recently requested that we stop doing this due to concerns that by having their name shown, it would suggest that they are endorsing AlgorithmicTrading.net (which they can’t do legally) or validating the authenticity of the statements.
UPDATE: As of 8/1/2019 we are in the process of having all four accounts audited by an accountant who specializes in alternative investment vehicles, such as Futures Trading Systems. We should be able to provide audited statements within a week or two.
Does this include all fees?
The performance numbers DO include the fees the broker charges (per trade commissions). It does not include the one time setup fee AlgorithmicTrading.net charges, nor does it include any of the maintenance fees charged.
What is this account trading exactly?
It is trading the Swing Trader algorithms exclusively. It is trading them using four units (Non-Compounded).
