Your Trading System SolutionSM
Tiger Vol is a day trading system for the Russell 2000 that attempts to capture the major price movement of the day. This strategy uses trend following, momentum, and daily volatility analysis in its decision making processes. The parameters are re-optimized on a monthly basis, and all results shown are from out-of-sample periods of a walk-forward analysis based on a monthly re-optimization. It only trades on days shown statistically to be robust, and during those days it may make up to 2 trades. All orders are market or stop market to ensure real-time trades will be filled (no partial orders, unfilled limit orders, etc.). It uses a maximum stop loss of $600 per trade (there is no guarantee that a stop loss order will be filled at the stop price). No trades are held overnight.
Market traded: Russell 2000 mini futures
Max stop loss per trade: $600

All hypothetical performance results shown below are based on 1 contract per trade, include $50 round-trip commission and slippage per trade and are non-compounded results (profits are not reinvested). The lease price is not included in these results. No management or incentive fees are charged. The method used to determine purchase and sale price for each trade is established by a mathematical computation that is proprietary. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
5 year Hypothetical Performance Summary (based on a $15,000 account not compounded):
FUTURES TRADING INVOLVES SUBSTANTIAL RISK AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL INVESTORS. PEOPLE CAN AND DO LOSE MONEY. PAST PERFORMANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE FUTURE RESULTS. ALTHOUGH EVERY ATTEMPT IS MADE TO ENSURE THE ACCURACY OF THESE NUMBERS, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THEY ARE, DUE TO INACCURACIES IN DATA OR ERRORS IN CALCULATION.
HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE CERTAIN INHERENT LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORDS, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT ACTUALLY BEEN EXECUTED, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE OVER OR UNDER COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS SUCH AS A 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 PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN.
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 TRADING IS THAT SUCH 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 ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKET 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.
