Warning: System trading results are still hypothetical.

Even though the system developer is currently trading his own system in a real-life brokerage account, the trading results presented on this Web site must still be regarded as purely hypothetical results. This is because (among other reasons) the system developer may not have traded all signals, particularly those that occurred before 06/01/2019, and the system developer's results may not match the system results presented here. In addition, not all subscribers have received the same trades or prices as the system manager has. For these reasons, and others, it is extremely important you remember the following:

About the results you see on this Web site

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.

These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical 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 these being shown.

In addition, hypothetical 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 also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets 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.

You may be interested to learn more technical details about how Collective2 calculates the hypothetical results you see on this web site.

C2Star

C2Star is a certification program for trading strategies. In order to become "C2Star Certified," a strategy must apply tight risk controls, and must exhibit excellent performance characteristics, including low drawdowns.

You can read more about C2Star certification requirements here.

Note that: all trading strategies are risky, and C2Star Certification does not imply that a strategy is low risk.

Trading Category: Equity
Trend-following
Category: Equity

Trend-following

Tries to take advantage of long, medium or short-term moves that seem to play out in various markets. Typically, trend-following analysis is backward looking; that is, it attempts to recognize and profit from already-established trends.
Sector Rotation
Category: Equity

Sector Rotation

Uses the proceeds from the sale of securities related to a particular investment sector for the purchase of securities in another sector. This strategy is used as a method for capturing returns from market cycles and diversifying holdings over a specified holding period.

Annual Return (Compounded)

Rate of Return Calculations

Overview

To comply with NFA regulations, we display Cumulative Rate of Return for strategies with a track record of less than one year. For strategies with longer track records, we display Annualized (Compounded) Rate of Return.

How Annualized (Compounded) Rate of Return is calculated

= ((Ending_equity / Starting_equity) ^ (1 / age_in_years)) - 1

Remember that, following NFA requirements, strategy subscription costs and estimated commissions are included in marked-to-market equity calculations.

All results are hypothetical.

If you have questions about my strategy specifically I encourage you to first read the forum thread titled Patience is a Virtue. If your question is not answered there then please ask a question there. I do not respond to private messages. I really try to stay away from giving personalized investment advice since I am not a licensed financial advisor. I highly recommend reading this entire description and the entire forum thread titled Patience is a Virtue before subscribing!

I am not an expert and work in a field separate from finance. However, I consider trading my second job. I have been very active in my investments over the past 5 years, with little financial or emotional benefit. Looking back, had I put all my savings into a low-cost index fund such as VTI I would have done much better over this period. Hindsight is 20/20. Fortunately, I believe I learned lessons that will help me reap great benefits in the future. Also, I learned these lessons while fresh out of college while investing small amounts of money. Only around the time I started this strategy did I have a significant amount of money to invest.

Patience is a Virtue is a blend of many different strategies I have come up with. To manage it I created a Google sheet that automatically sends orders to Collective2 once a day at about 15 minutes before close. I have connected my margin account and the Roth IRA accounts for my wife and myself so that they auto trade this strategy with the full balance of the accounts. These accounts make up about 71% of my net worth now. I monitor the Google sheet and my Collective2 account as frequently as possible to prevent any errors, but I know they are still possible. Every weekday I have alarms set on my phone and wrist watch to remind me to quickly log into my Interactive Brokers app and Google Sheet 10 minutes before market close to make sure that my accounts are in sync and in appropriate positions based on my algorithm. If it did not do it correctly, I would quickly jump on the C2 WebTrader to adjust positions.

Despite these safeguards, there are still many ways in which things could go wrong, and I may not be able to check and fix it before markets close. Therefore, I have decided to limit the percent of my net worth I will tie directly to this system. Any new savings from my job or other income, now get managed using ThinkorSwim, which allow me to make a similar automated strategy using their software.

Though I have done a lot to make sure the order entry system runs smoothly, there is no guarantee it will go smoothly. Here are some basic points about the investing philosophy of this strategy.

1. Certain asset classes tend to go up overtime.
2. Investing in those asset classes with cheap leverage tends to produce higher total returns.
3. Asset diversification is even more important than normal when leverage is present to moderate drawdowns.
4. Multi-decade backtested indicators can help reduce drawdowns, improve returns, and reduce leverage decay.
5. Tight stops hinder results. Stops should be used but loose enough to only trigger during flash crashes like that of 1987.
6. Losses should have absolute caps. Trades that using margin or futures can cause losses greater than the original cost basis and should not be used.
7. Trading should be kept to a minimum when possible to reduce costs and whipsaw.
8. To improve my odds of success in the long term I very rarely buy assets that don't have a long-term history of appreciating. As of right now the only asset I buy that I would consider depreciating is UVXY, which I very rarely buy as a hedge during tumultuous times.
9. Patience is crucial to success. Large wins can come after long periods of low or negative growth.
10. Drawdowns are a necessary occurrence of realistic investment strategies. I highly expect to have a drawdown of at the least 35% at some point in the future. You should seriously consider this before subscribing.
11. Joining trades in progress is the best option. If I knew it wasn't a good time to buy, I wouldn't hold those positions.
12. For several reasons including privacy I often hold several positions with just 1 share. I do apologize if you find that annoying, but it solves several problems for me.
13. For an overview of my thoughts on potential (not guaranteed or verified) future returns please see the post in the forums here: https://forums.collective2.com/t/patience-is-a-virtue/13676/72
14. Never FOMO into a strategy. Join a strategy that has a solid trading philosophy that makes sense, low leverage use, and a good track record.
15. There are currently no discounts or special offers. Please see this post for why https://forums.collective2.com/t/patience-is-a-virtue/13676/74
16. You will need to be able to trade GBTC, UVXY, SPY, TMF, UPRO, SPXL, TNA, TQQQ, MIDU, and GLD in order to follow this strategy effectively.

More information about leverage

Collective2 calculates the maximum leverage used by a strategy in each day. We then display the average of these measurements (i.e. the average daily maximum leverage) and the greatest of these measurements (maximum daily leverage).

Leverage is the ratio of total notional value controlled by a strategy divided by its Model Account equity. Generally higher leverage implies greater risk.

Example of calculation:
The Strategy buys 100 shares of stock at $12 per share.
The Model Account equity during that day is $5,000.
The leverage is: $1200 / $5,000 = 0.24

This is a useful measurement, but it should be considered in context. This measurement doesn't take into account important factors, such as when multiple positions are held that are inversely correlated. Nor does the measurement take into account the volatility of the instruments being held.

In addition, certain asset classes are inherently more leveraged than others. For example, futures contracts are highly leveraged. Forex positions are often even more leveraged than futures.

Most values on this page (including the Strategy Equity Chart, above) have been adjusted by estimated trading commissions and subscription costs.

Some advanced users find it useful to see "raw" Model Account values. These numbers do not include any commissions, fees, subscription costs, or dividend actions.

Strategy developers can "archive" strategies at any time. This means the strategy Model Account is reset to its initial level and the trade list cleared. However, all archived track records are permanently preserved for evaluation by potential subscribers.

About the results you see on this Web site

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.

These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical 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 these being shown.

In addition, hypothetical 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 also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets 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.

Material assumptions and methods used when calculating results

The following are material assumptions used when calculating any hypothetical monthly results that appear on our web site.

  • Profits are reinvested. We assume profits (when there are profits) are reinvested in the trading strategy.
  • Starting investment size. For any trading strategy on our site, hypothetical results are based on the assumption that you invested the starting amount shown on the strategy's performance chart. In some cases, nominal dollar amounts on the equity chart have been re-scaled downward to make current go-forward trading sizes more manageable. In these cases, it may not have been possible to trade the strategy historically at the equity levels shown on the chart, and a higher minimum capital was required in the past.
  • All fees are included. When calculating cumulative returns, we try to estimate and include all the fees a typical trader incurs when AutoTrading using AutoTrade technology. This includes the subscription cost of the strategy, plus any per-trade AutoTrade fees, plus estimated broker commissions if any.
  • "Max Drawdown" Calculation Method. We calculate the Max Drawdown statistic as follows. Our computer software looks at the equity chart of the system in question and finds the largest percentage amount that the equity chart ever declines from a local "peak" to a subsequent point in time (thus this is formally called "Maximum Peak to Valley Drawdown.") While this is useful information when evaluating trading systems, you should keep in mind that past performance does not guarantee future results. Therefore, future drawdowns may be larger than the historical maximum drawdowns you see here.

Trading is risky

There is a substantial risk of loss in futures and forex trading. Online trading of stocks and options is extremely risky. Assume you will lose money. Don't trade with money you cannot afford to lose.

Okay, gotcha.
