We’re all somewhat familiar with automated trading systems…and generally, most of us aren’t all that impressed.

The problem is that there are too many of them.

It seems as if any mediocre trader who knows how to program code is trying to sell an automated system.

And usually, the system is pretty bad.

The system developer makes money from sales, while the subscriber ends up with a poor product.

And I’m sure you’ve seen all the marketing that goes into hyping-up systems. Absolutely ludicrous!

Well, as they say, “the proof is in the pudding.”

And the “pudding” is the third-party-verified stats.

There are three things that will tell you how a system is “really” doing.

Remember, though, that just because something performed well doesn’t mean it will continue.

That goes with any investment or high-stakes decision.

But when it comes down to it, would you rather invest in something that did well, or something that has never been tested?

So what are these qualities?

ONE: It has to have made real profits—LIVE profits, not hypothetical simulated profits.
 
TWO: Its current returns must be more than twice its worst drawdown.

About this, sure, a worst historical drawdown doesn’t mean that it won’t have another that exceeds it.

It just means that the drawdown recorded happens to be the worst.

But would you trust a system that has, say, $20,000 in net profits if its worst drawdown was around -$100,000?

What if you subscribed right before that massive loss?

In short, you should twice about trusting a system that had lost nearly as much or more than it had made in the live markets.

THREE: It should have a “win rate” at or above 50%.

Now, there are systems that make profits less than half of the time.

But most investors/subscribers have a hard time with more losses than profits…even if the profits are greater than the losses.

For this reason, we made “win rate” the third criteria.

So now you have to sift through a universe of systems to find those exhibiting these three qualities.

Well, that’s part of what we do here at Halifax America.

In fact, we’ve got six of them:

System

2.       ?

These results were derived from live trading. In other words, “real” trading…no hypotheticals.

Hypotheticals are untested. Live trading is putting theory into practice.

So what are these six systems?

Well, if you are interested, first you must determine if any of these are right for your financial goals.

But we’ll tell you what they are.
