Program Info

The GT Systematic Day Trading Program utilizes trading techniques over short time frames and trades only futures, and not options. The market data is analyzed on an intraday basis with positions rarely (if ever) being held overnight. As such, the program involves “day-trading,” which involves initiating and exiting a position on the same trading day.The GT Systematic Day Trading Program relies primarily technical indicators, specifically the Elliot Wave Principle, in determining positions. The Elliott Wave Principle is a form of technical analysis used by trader to analyze financial market cycles and forecast market trends by identifying extremes in investor psychology, highs and lows in prices, and other collective factors. The Elliott Wave Principle posits that collective investor psychology, or crowd psychology, moves between optimism and pessimism in natural sequences. These mood swings create patterns evidenced in the price movements of markets at every degree of trend or time scale. The program will result on both trend following and counter trend following position. While GT Capital makes every effort to adhere to this trading program, GT Capital reserves the right to take appropriate actions outside the systems if warranted by exceptional or unusual market conditions or if the world situation results in unusually high amounts of risk. The Advisor generally attempts to limit its daily risk to between one fourth of a percent (0.25%) and four percent (4%) of an account’s equity per day. However, there is no guarantee that losses will be limited to these amounts.
