Short Only S&P Timer
This TradeStation system is the basically the exact opposite of the Long Only S&P timer. Instead of contracting volatility, this model uses expanding volatility to time entries. This system is rooted in a core principle of market profile, and is tailor made for those of you that like a longer holding period, less trading, and BIG winners. Yet another one of our favorite systems because of its simplicity and elegance, this model uses ONE and only ONE filter to time entries in the ES futures market to try and find those major market tops. Because this system only hunts for the major market tops, it obviously will only trade a handful of times a year, but when it does trade, the average net trade is a huge $620 to date since 1999, with a very nice profit factor of 2.01. This is a short only system, that has $20 deducted per trade for slippage and commissions, and only trades 1 contract per trade in the test results and never more. We can't even begin to describe how difficult it is to build a short swing system for the S&P that actually makes money, this one certainly does and should hold a place in all investors and traders portfolios!
