They are algorithm-generated trading signals for timing the buying and selling of equities that track the price movement of the S&P 500 Index. For simplicity, the signals are designated as Up Signals and Down Signals.
No. These signals represent the anticipated overall direction of market price movement during the period of time that the trade is in effect. Typically, trades last 4 or 5 days.
A trading signal is generated for each market day. Less than 5% of the time, though, the signal may be Out of Market. On those days, you would not have a position in the market.
No. The trading signals have been designed to have three different personalities … distinguished by the amount of time spent in the market. The Confident Signal is in the market only about 20% of the time; the Strong Signal is in the market about 50% of the time; and the Aggressive Signal is usually always in the market. Nonetheless, if you have entered a trade it is recommended that you follow the signals for the duration of the trade.
This signal has been engineered to achieve high profits coupled with limited market exposure (in the market about 20% to 40% of the time). Using this approach, the algorithm yields the highest trade accuracy … typically greater than 80% winning trades. Generally, this approach will be used by a person who wishes to encounter less risk by trading a more accurate signal. While a high profit is expected, this signal produces less profit than either the Strong Signal or the Aggressive Signal because it is not in the market as often. Counterintuitively, Confident Signals are the strongest signals.
This signal was engineered to maintain a market exposure between 40% and 80% of the time and yet maintain a very high trade accuracy … typically, 70% to 80% winning trades. The Strong Signal is expected to produce a higher profit, when compared to the Confident Signal, because it has both increased market exposure and a very high trade accuracy. This signal might be traded by a person wishing to experience higher profits by being in the market frequently. If you elect to trade the Strong Signals, then you would also be wise to trade the Confident Signals.
This signal was engineered to generally be in the market … between 95% and 100% of the time. As a result of its high market participation and trade accuracy (typically, 65% to 75% winning trades), this signal captures the highest profits when compared to the results of the Confident Signal and Strong Signal. This signal may be traded by a person willing to be in the market most of the time and to be compensated highly for having been so. The aggressive trader will be taking all of the system trades.
The Aggressive Signal is programmed to be in the market nearly 100% of the time … with little variance. As a result, this signal type experiences a wider range of trade accuracy when compared to the Strong Signal, which typically is in the market only 50% of the time. The larger range of trade accuracy of the Aggressive Signal, however, yields the highest profit.
The trading signals are generally updated to the application before 11:00 AM ET each market day for execution on that day’s market close.
From the About Page of this application, you can access examples of how to use these signals on the How to Trade the Signals page.
Just before the close of the regular session of the market for the instrument you are trading.
Orders may be executed manually online through your brokerage service prior to the day session close. Another option would be to enter your order as a Market On Close (MOC) order after the signal is issued by WinTieWin but before the market’s close. These orders are filled at the market price on the close.
The regular trading session closes for ETFs at 4:00 PM ET with the exception of SPY, which is traded until 4:15 PM ET. The S&P 500 futures market also closes at 4:15 PM ET.
If you can’t monitor the signals daily (for example, because you are too busy or are traveling) then delay trading until you do have the time, because the markets will always be there when you return. Coming soon, however, WinTieWin will offer a VIP Subscription that will enable you to receive an alert when a buy or sell signal is generated by the system. As long as you have an Internet or phone connection you will be able to receive trade information and be able to place trades.
While the total number is proprietary, at least 10 are used. The various inputs are combined using an algorithm, TheSignalGenerator, to produce the daily trading signal.
The WinTieWin application offers three types of trading signals. A graph of the equity of one of those signal types is displayed on that page. It represents the equity that would have been generated from trading one contract of the E-Mini S&P 500 future over the indicated time period. A $12,000 original investment would have generated those profits.
