History of Algorithmic Trading
The following picture shows the different tracks AlgorithmicTrading.net has offered since we began back in August 2013.
This data following this table shows the progression of our product offerings and is being shared in the spirit of full-disclosure/transparency so that potential clients can see the other algorithmic trading systems we have offered prior to our current offerings (S&P Crusher v3 and The Swing Trader).
History of Each Package
The following graphics show the history of changes for packages both currently and previously offered.
The Swing Trader Track History – Licenses AVAILABLE
The following picture shows the key upgrades made to this package. This trading system was created by combining our two best performing algorithms as of October 2016. The Swing Trader trades the Momentum ES Algo and the Treasury Note TY Algo, both of which can handle a substantial amount of trading volume. The Treasury Note TY Algo (formerly called the P2-PushPull) was developed in Nov 2014-Dec 2014 with the last optimization being performed in December 2014. It was offered to our NQ Legacy Customers as an add-on to the NQ Legacy package to help generate alpha during sustained bear markets. The Momentum ES Algo was last optimized around Oct 2015 and began trading live at that time. Together, these two algorithms represent our most popular swing trading system called The Swing Trader.
Weekly Options Track History – Not Offered As of January 2018
The following picture shows the key upgrades made to the weekly options trading system. As of January 2018, this options trading system is not being offered.
NQ Legacy Track History – Licenses Not Available As Of September 2016
Any algorithm company who has been around a while, will begin acquiring a history. Given that we constantly strive to give our clients the best algorithms we can – there have been various upgrades made since inception. The following picture is our attempt to capture the NQ Track of algorithms (starting with the NQ Legacy, then NQ Legacy auto (a), then NQ Legacy auto (b) and finally the NQ Active Trader (a) and (b). If you have any questions on the following data – please ask us, we would be happy to walk you through this data. The intent is to show the key upgrades which were made, as well as how the majority of our customers transitioned during these upgrades.
Curious how our original NQ Legacy package has done since it’s last optimization? Watch the following video to see for yourself. Our lead developer reviews the performance of this algo since it’s last optimization about three years ago.
Trading futures & options involves substantial risk of loss & is not appropriate for all investors.
ES Track History – Not Offered as of January 2016
The following picture is our attempt to capture the ES Active Trader Track of algorithms (starting with the ES Active Trader (b), then finally the ES Active Trader (v2).

AlgorithmicTrading.net provides trading algorithms based on a computerized system, which is also available for use on a personal computer. All customers receive the same signals within any given algorithm package. All advice is impersonal and not tailored to any specific individual's unique situation. AlgorithmicTrading.net, and its principles, are not required to register with the NFA as a CTA and are publicly claiming this exemption. Information posted online or distributed through email has NOT been reviewed by any government agencies — this includes but is not limited to back-tested reports, statements and any other marketing materials. Carefully consider this prior to purchasing our algorithms. For more information on the exemption we are claiming, please visit the NFA website: http://www.nfa.futures.org/nfa-registration/cta/index.html. If you are in need of professional advice unique to your situation, please consult with a licensed broker/CTA.
DISCLAIMER: Commodity Futures Trading Commission Futures trading has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk. You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the futures markets. Don't trade with money you can't afford to lose. This is neither a solicitation nor an offer to Buy/Sell futures. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed on this website or on any reports. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Unless otherwise noted, all returns posted on this site and in our videos is considered Hypothetical Performance.
HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
With the exception of the statements posted from live accounts on Tradestation and/or Gain Capital, all results, graphs and claims made on this website and in any video blogs and/or newsletter emails are from the result of back-testing our algorithms during the dates indicated. These results are not from live accounts trading our algorithms. They are from hypothetical accounts which have limitations (see CFTC RULE 4.14 below and Hypothetical performance disclaimer above). Actual results do vary given that simulated results could under — or over — compensate the impact of certain market factors. Furthermore, our algorithms use back-testing to generate trade lists and reports which does have the benefit of hind-sight. While back-tested results might have spectacular returns, once slippage, commission and licensing fees are taken into account, actual returns will vary. Posted maximum draw downs are measured on a closing month to closing month basis. Furthermore, they are based on back-tested data (refer to limitations of back-testing below). Actual draw downs could exceed these levels when traded on live accounts.
CFTC RULE 4.41 - Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under — or over — compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
Statements posted from our actual customers trading the algorithms (algos) include slippage and commission. Statements posted are not fully audited or verified and should be considered as customer testimonials. Individual results do vary. They are real statements from real people trading our algorithms on auto-pilot and as far as we know, do NOT include any discretionary trades. Tradelists posted on this site also include slippage and commission.
This strictly is for demonstration/educational purposes. AlgorithmicTrading.net does not make buy, sell or hold recommendations. Unique experiences and past performances do not guarantee future results. You should speak with your CTA or financial representative, broker dealer, or financial analyst to ensure that the software/strategy that you utilize is suitable for your investment profile before trading in a live brokerage account. All advice and/or suggestions given here are intended for running automated software in simulation mode only. Trading futures is not for everyone and does carry a high level of risk. AlgorithmicTrading.net, nor any of its principles, is NOT registered as an investment advisor. All advice given is impersonal and not tailored to any specific individual.
* Published percentage per month is based on back-tested results (see limitations on back-testing above) using the corresponding package. This includes reasonable slippage and commission. This does NOT include fees we charge for licensing the algorithms which varies based on account size. Refer to our license agreement for full risk disclosure.
