Commodity Trade Finder has been developed to allow subscribers
the ability to test diferent trading strategies in an effort to
find the most profitable. While there is no guarantee that what
has worked in the past will work in the future, the potential is
present. Certainly, this program does not completely exhaust or test
all the possibilities. Intentionally, the focus has been narrowed
in order to have some reasonable size to the development and to allow
the use of the program by several subscribers over the Internet. The
databases used are of the nearby month of each commodity.
is designed to be educational, as well as practical. Although we look
at historical data, each trade is made as if we were at that point in
time, with no knowledge of the future. If the selected criteria
indicates a trade is to be attempted, that trade is attempted on the
next trading day. In real life, it is as if you would come in the evening,
check the markets and see that your particular trading pattern had been matched
by today's markets. You would then call your commodity broker that evening
or early the next morning and place an order to be filled during that next
trading day. At the same time, you would specify the profit desired, the maximum
loss acceptable, and the maximum days to keep the trade on. The broker could
then follow your orders without further input from you.
This program has been in development for several years.
Originally, written in the BASIC computer language, then in dBase, and now converted
to PERL. The databases used by the program are updated on a weekly basis. Additional
features will be added over the next few months. If you have an idea for an new
trading option or parameter, drop us an email and we will consider it. Our next
parameter we anticipate adding is the ability to limit trading to a particular day
of the week. After that, we anticipate adding the ability to test your trading pattern
over only a portion of the database, for example, the last six months.
Here's our disclaimer: We are not reponsible for any profits or
losses you may incur as a result of using a trading strategy developed using this
program and then implementing that strategy in the actual commodity market.
