  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.

Experiences with Collective2

Hi Everyone,
Naturally I am now curious to hear about your good and bad experiences using Collective2, as vendors and as customers. I think I found maybe two or three profitable strats in the population I sorted and the rest were scary at best.

for my first idea, c2 is a kind of a playground for sys-freaks + sys-developer-beginner + trader who think about playing bigger one day.

the one who are succesful with their stuff playing there a bit move forward to some more seriously / bigger places and/or create their own funds / managed accounts.

but nothing to say against such a not too expencive place as a playing / testing-area to make open trackrecords + stuff to see how all that works.

Interesting. Thanks Max. You mean there are better places than C2? Do you have links to other sites? Or do you just mean those that create their own funds?

At C2, I sorted the group by the guys who don't have over a 3% drawdown and had over 1000 trades. Those guys had some pretty interesting things going on. I then added a sharpe ratio greater than 1 (I looked this up on Wiki and I don't fully understand its relevance). It seemed there were two guys on there if I remember that were the only guys that didn't have more than 2 losing days. They do about $100 a day if I remember correctly. I am soo ok with that. But I don't know if it's legit.

In the absence of certified audits by reputable accountants, C2 is a decent choice to evaluate systems for sale.

As an accountant by profession, I am really not sure how to take that comment

Given all the screwups by top tier firms, I understand.
