Spock is a professional market trader, and has been trading the global financial markets across all asset classes for over 30 years. His focus is on extra-day trading only, taking short and medium term positions, based on both fundamental and technical analysis. The focus at the moment is on the precious metals mining sector, where extreme value propositions are now appearing, after a five year grinding bear market in the sector. In addition, on a weekly basis, a global matrix is generated, which gives a macro picture across all global general asset classes and sectors, showing what stage they are in (bull, bear or consolidation), and what asset classes and sectors to avoid on the long side, and profit from on the short side.
The Spock Trading System was developed over a period of 12 months starting in early 2015. It was developed to simplify trading decisions by providing long, short or flat trading signals, after the market close each day.
Most day traders eventually lose all their trading capital. So the Spock Trading System focuses on extra-day trading signals. Intra-day trading is for the professionals only, as the markets are now driven by high frequency trading machines, using algorithms. The average trader does not stand a chance against these machines on an intra-day basis, over the long term. The trading signals are generated from a proprietary matrix of indicators over several time frames that have been extensively back tested and are calculated after the close each day.
The basis of the Spock Trading System is that it is unemotional, logical trading. No opinion or thought is required to enter or exit a trade. The signals are generated AFTER the market close and the trades are entered the next day, during the trading session. Generally no trades are placed in the first 60 minutes of market open, until the market settles down.
Although the system generates numerous signals daily, not all trades are taken. The reason is that some discretion is used to determine which trades have a higher probability of success. This decision is based on the technical analysis aspects of the security. For example, if the security is close to a major resistance line, and a long signal is generated, it is unlikely the trade is entered. However, if the security is just above a major support line, then the long trade would be entered.
Generally no individual trade is more than 5% to 10% of trading capital. Therefore, the risks are minimized, so that trading capital is protected, as if one 5% trade does blow up prior to an exit, a maximum loss to total trading capital is never more than 1% to 2%.
The bottom line is that the Spock Trading System generates consistent profits, with minimum risks, no intra-day trading stress and therefore no emotional input to trading decisions. The trader can place the orders, and stay generally detached from the markets, whilst generating significant returns on trading capital.
Trade well and prosper. Spock.
