The API stock market system:
The API system features 100% mechanical signals as shown in the chart above. It is designed for Indices, Futures, and ETF's and lends itself exceedingly well to short term swing trading with options as well. It particularly suits short term traders with 2 to 10 day time horizons. It trades both long and short.
The singular outstanding feature of the API trading system is that all signals to both enter and exit are calculated for the next days open price. This is very, very significant for a couple of reasons.
The first reason is that the open is a constant and non optimized price point. We could have absolutely tweaked the entry and exit points to extract more historical profit. But using just the open is a much, much better methodology to extract maximum user functionality and that is the whole point.
The second related point is that the open will be the best price of the day less then 1% of the time. This means there is significant and often substantial opportunity to improve the theoretical system results on both the entry and the exit. It makes the system a valuable trading tool for both the systematic and the discretionary trader.
