Follow TREND and stop worrying about Losing Trades and Large Drawdowns.

To be a Successful Trader...
You have to be able to Trade without the Stress and Pressure
of knowing what the market is doing on a daily basis.
Think about it.

Futures trading is risky. It is not suitable for all investors.

The system is stand alone. It is installed on your computer.
You run it once a week on Friday, after the market closes.
Follow the signals and place the trades with your Own Broker.

Margin required: $10,000 per contract traded.


System Overview

  • The ATS-ZB32 trades the 'ZB' contract on a long term basis.
  • The average profits are over $24,000 per contract per year.
  • The average profits per trade are over $11,000.
  • TREND makes sure the system does not get into large drawdowns.
  • The largest drawdown has been reduced to only $2800.
  • Since 2000 the system only had 3 losing trades.
  • The system is easy to use. Takes about 10 minutes each week to run.
  • You can download a Free Trial after you register.
  • The system is available to a few experienced traders only.
  • The lease/license can be paid from the profits generated.

TREND is a new sub-system that monitors the ATS-ZB32 while it is trading to
make sure that it is always trading in the direction of the market.

The function "TREND" has the following objectives:
  • To reduce the maximum drawdown to very small levels.
  • To close losing trades quickly with a smaller loss.

With TREND as your Watchdog,
You never have to worry about a Losing Trade again.
"TREND" reduced the max. drawdown from $7500 to only $2800.

Testimonial from the first customer who bought the ATS-3200.

The results speak for themselves. You have produced results. This is the best system I have ever purchased, and I bought them all. If you ever need a testimonial ever, count me in.
August 2001: EL, Clearwater, FL.

This is how the system was developed.
I wrote this article many years ago for the ATS-3200.

The ATS-ZB32 works the same way.
It is the Super Version of the ATS-3200.

ATS-ZB32: Trading Signals

The market is over sold: BUY
The market is over bought: SELL
Signal to BUY during a long trade.
Signal to SELL during a short trade.
The major trend is up.
The major trend is down.
Signal to get out of the market.
Signal to stay out of the market.

I created the ATS-ZB32 for myself.
The system trades only 3 to 4 times per year.
This keeps trading costs low, and makes very large profits per trade.

It is a long term trading system, using Genetic Algorithms, Fuzzy Logic and Chaos. The ATS-ZB32 trades the 30 Year T-Bonds(ZB) and the ATS-ZN64 trades the 10 Year T-Notes(ZN). Both read weekly price data to reduce noise, and use adaptive filters to stay with the trend.

The system uses genetic algorithms to detect an over bought market or an over sold market. Therefore it goes short at or near the top and long at or near market the bottom.

Each algorithm tracks one main indicator, but only generates a "BUY" near a market bottom, or a "SELL" near a market top, if the trade can be verified by other indicators for more accurate trading signals.

The adaptive algorithms are grouped together into two neural networks. The "X" network scans the market for over bought market conditions. The "L" network scans the market for over sold market conditions.

Built into the system are a number of functions to control risk, limit drawdowns and reduce the number of losing trades.

Using a combination of pattern recognition and adaptive indicators the System is able to quantify market activity and pinpoint over bought and over sold conditions that offer excellent trading opportunities with long term potential for substantial profits, while reducing risk and limiting drawdowns.

To succeed as a Trader you need these 3 basic qualities:

1: An Advantage:
    Trade and follow a proven System.
    This will help you trade without any emotions.

2: Discipline:
    You must have the discipline to follow the system.
    You must never second guess the system.
    You must also be able to conquer fear and greed.

3: Adequate Funds:
    You must have the margin funds required for each contract traded.

The ATS-ZB32 is very easy to follow, and will take very little of your time. You only need to update the price file once a week, after the market closes on Friday.

By not following the market every day, you reduce the risk of being influenced by the intraday reversals, and will be able to stay objective about your long term goal.

ATS-ZB32: Functions and Algorithms

The system is made up of a number of functions working together as a whole. Once you understand how each part of the system improves the performance of the whole, you will be able to trade with confidence and without Fear or Stress. The ATS-ZN64 works the same way.

The new "TREND" Funtion.

This is a sub-system that sits on top of the ATS-ZB32 monitoring the system while it is trading. If a trade starts losing money "TREND" checks the direction of the market. If the market is moving in the wrong direction, "TREND" gives you a signal to "EXIT" the trade with a very small loss. Also "TREND" by cutting losses short has reduced the max. drawdown from $7800 to only $2800. This makes it possible to trade the system with a very small margin per contract, making the system more profitable. Using "TREND" it is impossible for the ATS-ZB32 to get into a big losing trade resulting in a huge drawdown. No other system can do this.

The Primary Indicator.

This is a long term 11 week stochastic. The system tries to go short with values above 90% and long with values below 10%.

The "F" Filter.

This is an adaptive simple filter that filters out insignificant trend reversals to avoid whipsaw losing trades. It adjusts itself to slow, medium and fast markets. It also changes in sideways markets, near tops and bottoms, and as the market moves higher and higher and becomes more volatile.

The Stop Loss Function.

This functions calculates the stop on each new trade and handles how stopped out trades are treated. The function will prevent the system from entering the market if it is too high(over bought) to go long, or too low(over sold) to go short. In each case we get a signal to "STAY OUT", after being stopped out.

The Drawdown Parameter.

This parameter takes the system out of the market, if the trade is losing more than $250 (default value) at the close on Friday. Again this function will prevent the system from going long if the market is too high(over bought), or short if the market is too low(over sold). However the function will keep the system in the trade if the market is moving in the direction of the trade, otherwise the system gives a signal to "GET OUT".

The Trailing Stop Function.

This function works with non neural network trades only. When the system detects that a trade is profitable, it starts moving the stop to protect profits, and to prevent a winning trade from turning into a losing trade. It adapts itself in sideways markets. However the most dramatic effect this function has on the performance of the system, is to cut down on the number of consecutive losing trades.

The Algorithms.

The V-Filtes.

This is a network of complex algorithms which keep the System with the major trend. When the stochastic changes from positive to negative and vice versa, during a trade cycle, the new signal is sent to the V-Filtering system for verification. If it is intercepted by any of the algorithms, it will be cancelled and the system stays long or short with the major trend.

The X-Algorithms.

These genetic algorithms are trained to detect an overbought market. Each algorithm will only go SHORT if a signal is verified by all the indicators grouped together into a formula. When all the indicators signal an overbought market, the algorithm generates a "SELL" signal.

The L-Algorithms.

These genetic algorithms are trained to detect an oversold market. Each algorithm will only go LONG if a signal is verified by all the indicators grouped together into a formula. When all the indicators signal an oversold market, the algorithm generates a "BUY" signal.

    This special report highlights periods when the market is moving sideways.

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. 'ATS HAS SOME EXPERIENCE IN TRADING ACTUAL ACCOUNTS ON THIS SYSTEM. BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS TO COMPARE TO THE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS, CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE PARTICULARLY WARY OF PLACING UNDUE RELIANCE ON THESE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.
