Annual Return (Compounded)

Rate of Return Calculations

Overview

To comply with NFA regulations, we display Cumulative Rate of Return for strategies with a track record of less than one year. For strategies with longer track records, we display Annualized (Compounded) Rate of Return.

How Annualized (Compounded) Rate of Return is calculated

= ((Ending_equity / Starting_equity) ^ (1 / age_in_years)) - 1

Remember that, following NFA requirements, strategy subscription costs and estimated commissions are included in marked-to-market equity calculations.

All results are hypothetical.

Strategy Description

AS OF MAR. 1ST, 2013 'ZERO' HAS BEEN REPLACED BY ITS YOUNGER, NIMBLER INTRADAY SUCCESSOR: http://www.collective2.com/cgi-perl/system69547192.



Requirements to trade ZERO:




-IB or equal commission structure brokerage account


-TWS build 906.2 or higher with CSV input capability


-15K minimum trading capital (30K+ preferred to mitigate friction costs)


-5 minutes per day of personal account oversight between 9:25-9:30AM EST



The C2 equity curve reflects a 'Flat Rate' IB commissions rate which is
not
recommended in order to realize the full extent of profits trading this system. Additionally, the percentage of C2 capital allocated to each position takes into account the deduction of commissions from the Vendor's real-life portfolio based on a �Cost Plus� Interactive Brokers commission structure. Real trading results based on a �Cost Plus� commission structure at IB fall in between the upper and lower C2 hypothetical Zero equity curve results.


The approximate monthly cost associated with trading ZERO based on current C2 capital will be ~200.00 USD:

C2 Subscription Fee: 88.00 USD (pay per profitable month, ~75% profitable months per year)
Monthly Commissions: 125.00 USD (based on ~5.4 trades per day assuming a 'Cost Plus' commission structure at IB).



General Description:



ZERO is a proprietary Excel-based EOD (End-of-Day) mechanical trading system that relies on principles of regression analysis to identify potential price aberrations in Naz-100 equities which historically precede short-term price increases with ~55% probability. The system incorporates a probabilistic algorithm which generates a daily basket of limit entry orders outside of market hours at ~8:30AM EST.



System Concept:



ZERO stands for the '0' filter, randomized nature of the algorithm that drives this trading system. Most systems rely on static conditionals that filter historical data for TA patterns which
have
preceded profitable price movements. The more specific and numerous that these filters are, the more likely that they will not correlate with future price movements due to their inflexibility to changing trends in the ever-evolving financial marketplace. ZERO does not rely on filters nor models to choose trades. It relies on basic supply/demand mechanisms that are inherent to the markets and assumes that all equities in its trading basket have an equal likelihood of profitability. Positions are chosen by future, not historical market data.



Money Management:



The system allocates no more than 9% of trading capital per position and assumes a theoretical maximum of 10 positions. Account size is recommended to be 2x total C2 equity in order to absorb 'simultaneous fills' which in extremely volatile market conditions can increase the total number of trades to as many as 2x the intended maximum. This can be avoided with the selection of 'overfill protection' in IB TWS settings. IRA accounts will automatically limit position count to 1x margin requirements. Typical capital exposure ranges between 35-55%. All positions are held for 24hrs or less. There are no intraday trades. Stoplosses are not employed given that hold-time is so short.



Trading/Maintaining ZERO:



Trading and maintenance instructions will be provided upon subscription. It is important to understand that due to the 'randomized' logic nature of ZERO, there will occasionally be days when positions in a real account will differ from those in C2.



C2 Results:



C2 results mirror a live account with ~95% accuracy due to limitations in fill simulation with respect to position management methodology. Erroneous fills are generally corrected within 24hrs. Long term performance of a live account with equivalent position sizing to C2 should have an equal probability of performing slightly better or worse.



General Notes:



*C2 tracking began 10/31/08
*APD ratio--the 'dip-buy' nature of ZERO will always render a low APD even when 'hold and hope' is relatively low given its fixed position hold-time of 24hrs max. Average profit vs. loss is a more a telling metric from a bottomline perspective. In the interest of analyzing this further, please review individual trades, whose 'Drawdown and Risk' are almost exclusively classified as 'Low'.



Disclaimer:



Past results are not indicative of future results and neither Vendor nor C2 is responsible for unfavorable performance deviations. Do not subscribe to this system if you do not intend to dedicate the specified time for manual account maintenance. It is recommended for a serious subscriber to papertrade ZERO for at least two weeks in a virtual IB account to become familiar with its idiosyncrasies before trading real money. It should be known that all fills in a virtual account will be similar but not the same as fills in a real account. Vendor does not recommend autotrading of ZERO and is not responsible for syncing problems related to Tradebullet nor Trader68.
This system is only available to individuals through C2.

Most values on this page (including the Strategy Equity Chart, above) have been adjusted by estimated trading commissions and subscription costs.

Some advanced users find it useful to see "raw" Model Account values. These numbers do not include any commissions, fees, subscription costs, or dividend actions.

Strategy developers can "archive" strategies at any time. This means the strategy Model Account is reset to its initial level and the trade list cleared. However, all archived track records are permanently preserved for evaluation by potential subscribers.

About the results you see on this Web site

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.

These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical 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 profits or losses similar to these being shown.

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.

Material assumptions and methods used when calculating results

The following are material assumptions used when calculating any hypothetical monthly results that appear on our web site.

  • Profits are reinvested. We assume profits (when there are profits) are reinvested in the trading strategy.
  • Starting investment size. For any trading strategy on our site, hypothetical results are based on the assumption that you invested the starting amount shown on the strategy's performance chart. In some cases, nominal dollar amounts on the equity chart have been re-scaled downward to make current go-forward trading sizes more manageable. In these cases, it may not have been possible to trade the strategy historically at the equity levels shown on the chart, and a higher minimum capital was required in the past.
  • All fees are included. When calculating cumulative returns, we try to estimate and include all the fees a typical trader incurs when AutoTrading using AutoTrade technology. This includes the subscription cost of the strategy, plus any per-trade AutoTrade fees, plus estimated broker commissions if any.
  • "Max Drawdown" Calculation Method. We calculate the Max Drawdown statistic as follows. Our computer software looks at the equity chart of the system in question and finds the largest percentage amount that the equity chart ever declines from a local "peak" to a subsequent point in time (thus this is formally called "Maximum Peak to Valley Drawdown.") While this is useful information when evaluating trading systems, you should keep in mind that past performance does not guarantee future results. Therefore, future drawdowns may be larger than the historical maximum drawdowns you see here.

Trading is risky

There is a substantial risk of loss in futures and forex trading. Online trading of stocks and options is extremely risky. Assume you will lose money. Don't trade with money you cannot afford to lose.

Okay, gotcha.
