Program Info

The Artemis Program is a fully systematic swing trading system whereby system signals are predetermined by a computer and executed by the Advisor manually. The Artemis Program exclusively trades E-Mini S&P 500 futures, Micro E-Mini S&P 500 futures, E-Mini Nasdaq U.S. futures, and Micro E-Mini Nasdaq futures and is expected to carry trades overnight. The trading program is always in the market, long or short, in the E-Mini S&P 500 or the Micro E-Mini S&500 futures and long only at times in the E-Mini Nasdaq or Micro E-Mini Nasdaq futures contract.
The Advisor will trade 4 Micro E-Mini S&P 500 futures contracts and 1 Micro E-Mini Nasdaq futures per $35,000. For each additional $7,000 in customer accounts this will trigger a change in position sizing. Once the sizing of the micro contracts gets to the point where there is an equivalent e-mini contract, The Advisor will reduce the micro contracts and hold one full e-mini in its place.
Contract position sizing is calculated on a trade close to close basis. Should the initial $35,000 have a losing trade resulting for example in losses of $7,000, then the Advisor will switch to trading 3 Micro EMini S&P 500 contracts and 1 Micro E-Mini Nasdaq futures contract. There will be a reduction to the previous teer for every loss of $7,000 in the account. Additional risk management includes technical stops in highly volatile market environments.
