Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

MTPredictor and market meltdowns


I was wondering if anyone has backtested MTPredictor on historical data that has involved the major market blowups over the last 25 years or so? 1987 Black Monday? Asian Crisis 1997? LTCM and Russia 1998? Credit Crisis 2008?

These are all major Black Swan moves that have made or broken many a hedge fund manager and retail trader alike. A simple moving average crossover would have caught most of these-did MTPredictor's version of Elliott Wave catch them?

Although I am the software developer, I hope I can answer this question and post a chart showing these, as I have data that covers these periods.......
