ATM RTQ Info Sheet

The ATM RTQ Method is a real time strategy that is meant to be traded in the 5-minute timeframe. 

The ATM RTQ Method is a real time strategy that is meant to be traded in the 5-minute timeframe. TheMethod analyzes the ETF for NASDAQ 100 (QQQ). It looks for the QQQ to make a strong move in eitherdirection. Once this move is detected, it will trade the strongest (for longs) or weakest (for shorts) stocksin the Focus List. The number of trades taken depends on the time of the trading session.

The trades are managed by the RTQ Trade Plan. This Trade Plan will use various stops in order tomanage risk and capture profits. However, this Trade Plan is unique in the fact that it includes an extrastep if the trade hits its Fixed Profit Stop. This is done to deter the Method from entering another tradeon that same symbol right away. By using this extra step our testing has shown that it helps us avoidoverbought (for longs) or oversold (for shorts) situations and enhance the Method’s performance.

Discover the Difference ATM Can Make:

In Just 3 minutes, see how Market States, Trade Ranking, and Smart Allocation can achieve this goal!

The Adaptive Trade Management System (ATM) has one simple goal - maximizing return while minimizing risk.

This groundbreaking technology controls every aspect of how a trading system, or collection of systems, approaches the market.  In fact, it is a virtual Market Mastermind.

To the right is a Trade Simulation from 2000 through 2017.   Using ATM, ending equity hits $71.6 million versus $3 million without ATM.  And, Avg Annual Max Draw downs are just 9% compared to 40%.

How does ATM Achieve these results?

Market States

ATM is constantly aligning itself with the current market by detecting Market States.  Each different state will use different Strategies, Filters, Rankers and Allocation that are conductive to the current market

Trade Ranking

ATM Ranks trading candidates based on the current market and measurements on each , in order to select the best candidates each day.

Symbol Filters

Filters keep trades from being made when the trade is too risky.  For example, avoiding stocks in a trending market that are too volatile.

Smart Allocation

Smart Allocation based on market behavior can reduce risk even more.

In uncertain markets, ATM can take fewer or smaller positions or hedge between Long and Shorts.
