Start a trading system

If you are interested in selling your trading advice, you first create a "trading system." Collective2 tracks results by trading system, and customers subscribe to particular systems. You may create as many trading systems as you like.

In general, trading systems are organized around general principles or philosophies ("buying when things are oversold"), but they do not have to be. Opportunistic traders may simply want to create a "system" which is not really a system at all -- but is rather a set of recommendations and picks by one person.

Let's start by filling out information about your trading system. Don't worry too much about your answers; you'll be able to change them later.

And - remember - it's absolutely free to start a system and begin entering trades. So there's no risk to try it.


The system name is your "brand." Make it short and memorable.
System name must be at least 4 characters.
System name must be 24 or fewer characters.
Please use only letters and numbers.
System name is already in use. Please try another.
System name is not valid.

You can change your mind later, and you can trade any instrument at any time. But choosing now helps us categorize your system before you have a trading record we can analyze.

Your Model Account size is the amount of capital required to trade your buy and sell signals. Your Model Account will increase or decrease as you issue trades. Make the Model Account as small as you can, but leave room for inevitable drawdowns.
Please enter only numeric characters.
Please choose starting capital for system's Model Account.
Starting capital must be at least $5,000.
Maximum starting capital is $1,000,000.

How much should you charge?

The systems that earn the most money on Collective2 charge between $100 and $250 per month, and offer a free trial period of at least 7 days.

Wait... do you have a Collective2 account?

To publish a system on Collective2, you need a free Collective2 account.

If you don't have one, you can create one now. (When you create an account, we'll continue the process of setting up your system called ".")
