What We Believe

We believe helping others achieve their goals is one of the most satisfying feelings in the world. We believe life is too short and too precious to waste time worrying about money. We believe hard and honest work pays off. Drilling down on our purpose, we believe once a trader or asset manager has realized all possible outcomes, has considered both wins and losses, has fully backtested a strategy, then that trader or asset manager can have harmony in trading, as opposed to the typical anxiety that plagues both traders and asset management firms.

Being more granular, we believe it is highly disadvantageous to trade any futures instruments, particularly $ES, $NQ, $CL, and $GC (along with their micro versions), without an automated trading algorithm, not just because majority of trades are executed via algorithms, but primarily because in our view it’s nearly impossible to fully control one’s emotions when it comes to day trading, nor is it possible to capitalize on every opportunity in a fast moving market, unless one is relying on a rules based fully automated trading system.

Moreover, we believe being stuck in front of a computer for seven plus hours nearly every single day, researching or manually looking for trade set-ups, is not the best way to allocate one’s time. We believe not backtesting strategies on at least 5,000 trades, going back to 2008, is not a prudent way to put risk capital to work. We believe funds that only rely on internal strategies or internal capabilities will ultimately experience a reduction in their AUM. We believe NIH (not invented here) is the #1 cause that hinders growth.

As a solution to the problems noted above, we developed two self-directed, fully automated trading systems to accommodate traders; particular traders that trade on the robust NinjaTrader platform. First is Market Volatility Harvester™, an automated trading system exclusively developed to trade only $ES (not the micros, just the E-mini) on the NinjaTrader platform, and the other is Price Action Harvester™ Automated, a price action based automated trading system that can be used to trade any instrument, including futures, stocks, Forex, and crypto. These advanced yet easy to use automated trading systems are designed to do all of the heavy lifting for our clients, who are primarily asset managers and day traders, that want to capitalize on the opportunities that exist in daily markets. 

We offer live Zoom video demonstrations of the full capabilities of both of our automated trading systems.
