What are Automated Trading Systems?
An automated trading system consists of computer software that “watches” the market and executes trades based on its specific set of predetermined rules, including entry parameters, exit parameters, and risk controls.
By activating a strategy, S5 iSystems can allow you to:
- Save time
- Reduce emotions
- Monitor your account live through the S5 Mobile or S5 Trader Software
- Receive SMS or email notifications through the S5 Mobile when new trades are executed
- View reports on orders, positions, and statistics
- Receive transparent daily statements
From there, the S5 iSystems platform will automatically do the rest, providing you with accurate information on your fills and account status, reducing human error.
Watch this short video to learn how easy it is to start trading a system:
Study, compare, and choose from many different trading strategies to create a diversified portfolio with various developers, markets, and strategies. Such trading of a portfolio of uncorrelated trading strategies can help reduce risk and potentially lower drawdowns.
Historical prices are used to see how the system would have performed (hypothetically) if it had been active in past market environments. We also recommend that traders study self-directed trading strategies as well as automated trading strategies to see how the current algorithms worked on past prices.
Each trading strategy is forward tested by running the strategy in real time on live market data, potentially helping to confirm the effectiveness of the strategy on today’s market climate and expose any problems inherent in the code.

HYPOTHETICAL RISK DISCLAIMER:
HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN; IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK OF ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT TRADING RESULTS. THESE PERFORMANCE TABLES AND RESULTS ARE HYPOTHETICAL IN NATURE AND DO NOT REPRESENT TRADING IN ACTUAL ACCOUNTS.
PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING DERIVATIVES, INCLUDING COMMODITY FUTURES AND OPTIONS ON FUTURES INVOLVES SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL INVESTORS. YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER WHETHER SUCH TRADING IS SUITABLE FOR YOU IN LIGHT OF YOUR FINANCIAL CONDITION. THE HIGH DEGREE OF LEVERAGE THAT IS OFTEN OBTAINABLE IN COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING CAN WORK AGAINST YOU AS WELL AS FOR YOU. THE USE OF LEVERAGE CAN LEAD TO LARGE LOSSES AS WELL AS GAINS.
