About the Trading Strategies
Our futures trading system has been developed over more than 14 years. It is basically the same system shown in our trading course which is available to purchase on our other website, www.Futures-Investor.co.uk.
The latest incarnation of the system is more risk tolerant and aims to provide clients with a usable, low risk, profitable system by replicating our recommendations with their own trading accounts.
Unlike many trading systems being sold today, our system does not over-trade meaning our profits are not swallowed up with broker's commission fees. Over the year, we have made 175 trades.
Neither does our system scalp lots of small profits which would usually be wiped out by slippage and buy/ask spreads.
Many tipsters use fly-by-night websites that create over-optimised computer systems or trading robots that promise high returns and a high percentage of successful trades based on past data. Our tips are based on technical analysis using daily price charts and are published at the end of each trading session. This allows subscribers to place orders before the next trading session - usually buying/selling at the open and adjusting stop loss orders to accordingly.
For more info on our system, please see our FAQ section.
How Our Trading System Works
Open and Automated Trades
Our trade recommendations are either given as orders such as 'buy from the open' or 'exit long from the open'. Every trade is protected with a stop loss order which automatically trigger once a market moves to a specified price.
70% Winning Trades
Approximately 70% of the time our trade will go in the expected direction (i.e. we make money).
One of our Trading Rules is: "Don't Let a Profit Turn Into a Loss"
Once a trade has come into profit by $1000 or more at the close of a trading session, we momentarily switch our protective stop loss system from being based on support/resistance to simply lock-in a small profit of $100. This is because we do not want to see a profitable trade turn into a loss. Approximately 30% of the time, the trend turns out to be weaker than expected, the market will lose momentum and we will exit with this profit of around $100.
40% "Home Run" Trades
About 40% of the time, our trades move strongly in the expected direction. As the trend progresses, as a subscriber, you are told where to move your protective stop loss orders to so that they lock in more and more profits. Usually, you will move a stop loss once every few days as you ride the trend for a several weeks.
Low Drawdown and Risk
Our trade figures are based on using a hypothetical $100,000 trading account.
We trade lots of around $50,000 of a commodity at a time.
With our support/resistance protective stop loss system, trading this amount risks up to a maximum of 5% of equity on a trade (i.e. $5000) but usually it is much less - around 2-3%.
We never risk more than 5% of equity on a trade so if the support/resistance level is a long way from the current price and the risk to the stop loss is more, then we override the $50,000 lot size and trade less contracts.
(Our hypothetical account is always $100,000 - we do not add profits to it to increase the size of the account. Traders following our signals could bank and compound these profits and trade more contracts as their account grew.)

The trades' profit/loss
We also provide written notes with each Trade Sheet including specific entry orders such as:
Buy 1 September 09 Cocoa At The Market. Put a protective stop loss order at 1475
The Notes also summarise the day's activity such as which trades were entered, which trades exited and with what profit/loss.
Length of Trades
Each trade is a 'position trade' meaning it is not necessary for you to follow the markets during the day's trading.
The system's trades can last several days to a several weeks. Trades are usually entered with market orders (from the open) and exited with market orders or with stop loss orders.
The trade report is issued as soon as we can collate the end-of-day prices on our charts and run our analysis. Therefore the report is usually published daily at approximately 12.30am GMT, or 8.30pm EST.

"By the way, I love your work and am hoping it can give me the freedom in my life I am looking for." P. Hickey
"I've been trading since 1985, bought and tried it seems everything under the sun....NOTHING much was worth the money spent...UNTIL I found Mr. Riou, his trading course and
Futures Trading System.com....The sales pitch is for real and the man is a person of INTEGRITY!....Does he call them all correct, "nope"....but he calls 'MOST' of them ...!!!!! My only fear is that he will go away." L. Olsen
"To be honest, your system is simply superb. I was skeptical when I wanted to try it out but I have a solid confidence that your selections are very systematic with a clear trading plan keeping emotions out of the trading. A very professional service - glad to find a good one!" Subramani
"Thanks Philip for your great performance in such a difficult market. Looking forward to a great year." Moti Harel
"After checking your system for the free month, I know that there is no better system than yours for future trading. Actually, I gained more than your claims on my demo account. The reason is that I sat in front of computer daily more than 8 hours and I usually exit the trade when I feel an hourly candlestick chart has become overbought or oversold, and then I re-enter after a positive area. You could say I never trade the other way from your chosen direction. But anyway, if anyone wants to trade without giving more than a 30 minutes a day, then your system is also the best." Qamar Ali
"Thank you for a great month of trading signals. I don't yet have the margin to take all the indicated trades but I managed to cherry pick nearly $4000 in July!" T. McCullough
"I am very impressed with your predictions and your detailed recommendations for safe and profitable trades. I have subscribed to advisory services and newsletters in the past but none are comparable to the services that you offer." D.Richert
"You nailed the market again yesterday! Your market forecasts are money makers. How could a futures trader afford not to subscribe to your commentary!" K.Kirby
"I have to say, I am very impressed with the results you have had. It makes me want to mortgage the house and invest in your system!" H.Vandergiessen
"I have been following your forecasts for the last few weeks and I have been impressed by both your successes and your analysis." P. Lenes
"I have been using mocktrading.com to simulate orders being placed using your recommendations. I placed 4 mock orders: 1 on Corn, 2 on Crude, 2 on Unleaded Gas and 3 on Cotton, starting with a mock balance of $10,000.00 USD. The account is now worth $14,500.00 USD in one week! That is amazing." D.Huot
"I work on a trading desk and I find your trading results to be extraordinary" P.S., Professional Fund Trader
"Heart-poundingly spectacular!" Fred M.
"I've been a broker for the last 18 years and I've seen a lot of things come and go, so I have to tell you, I really like the way you approach the markets and that I'm very impressed by your feel for the markets.....you've had some nice winners."
"I have been paper trading your recommendations for the last week or two, but as of Thursday I couldn't sit on the sidelines and see all this potential profit just waft past. I'm pleased to say that your recommendations have made me a tidy £4000 profit in the last two days of last week alone... I'm certain there will be plenty more profitable trades where these came from in the future. Thank you for all your additional support as well, it is a pleasure dealing with someone who replies to email promptly."
Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually 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 the profits or losses similar to those shown.
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 TO 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.
