Inteligex Automates Trading Style Selection

We’ve been busy bees over the holiday period, continuing to develop and test the next release of the Inteligex algotrading system (it will be called Diamond!). It’s going really well and although it’s not quite ready we’ve had so many questions about how the auto Trading Style will work I’ve put together this short blog. […]

Santa Claus Rally or Crash?

Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way we have 3 full weeks of Trading left in 2019.     The question is will there be a Santa Rally or a Santa Crash on the Financial Markets?  We all remember the market dip last December when the S&P 500 alone lost c. 9% and that makes […]

Why you should trade the German DAX

The German economy has been in the news a lot recently, be it about tariffs applied to auto imports to the US, a slowing in industrial output and narrowly avoiding recession or the decision for Tesla to put a factory in Berlin.     If you want to start getting more diversification in your trading [...]

To Bank … or not to Bank?

First apologies to Shakespeare for blatantly abusing one of his quotes. However, the topic of setting a bank for your trades is one that is widely discussed and I thought it was a nice link!   What is a bank point? When you are running multi-contract trades you obviously have the option to exit each […]

Trading Micro E-minis …… think like a Football coach!

Back in May of this year the CME Group launched micro E-mini contracts for 4 major indices: Nasdaq100, Dow Jones 30, S&P500 and the Russell 2000.  The original E-mini was brought out back in the late 1990s so our view on chatting with colleagues in the market, including our friends at Dorman, was that these […]

Beyond the Trades Interview – Mark Sear

Mark Sear, Inteligex Co-Founder and CTO Beyond the Trades Interview   QUESTION – Thank you for taking the time to participate in the Q & A session. Before we start in detail. Would you like to share with everyone who may not know, who you are, what you do, where you live, work and your experience […]

What Traders can learn from NYC Cab Drivers

  We’re traders, we’re our own boss, we decide when we trade and when we don’t. We may trade 8 hours a day because we think of it as a job. We may trade until we hit a certain profit as we have a goal we want to achieve. We may just trade because we […]

Inteligex Algorithms revolutionize Technical Analysis

As a trader you’ve no doubt done your technical analysis.  You’ve put in the hard yards poring over charts, identified support and resistance, set up indicators and charting tools to help you see those repeating patterns and used this information to help you trade.   We all know it’s important to do this ground work as […]

What Are Your Trading Goals?

What Are Your Trading Goals? When I am having a trading discussion with someone, the topic eventually comes up – What are your goals? I want to make money! A common goal for a lot of people is – I want to make a certain amount of dollars per day. They will also usually have […]

I Just Needed To Get Out Of The Way!

I Just Needed To Get Out Of The Way! So, if you have read my last 2 posts, I presented my thought process (hopefully logically) about why I chose to go with automated trading and specifically, Inteligex. So, you would think that when I turned it on, I trusted the math and just let it […]

Trust The Math You Must!

Trust the math you must! The next step In my last post, I talked about why I decided to go with an automated system. The next step in my research was to decide on which automation company. There are lots of options out there, but once you start looking, the choices narrow down very quickly. […]

Manual vs Auto Trading

Manual vs auto trading For me, the choice to move to an automated system was relatively easy; you may be considering it now. Let me share my thought process… The Emotional Element I know I have trouble sometimes not wanting to take another trade if the last one lost because I don’t want to lose […]

New Release It’s great to get the new version of Inteligex (Amethyst as it’s known). You can see the Inteligex team have been listening to feedback and incorporating this into each subsequent release. [...]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 16

Preserving Capital Hey Traders! I’ve been trading for about an hour a day this week and then trying to stay away from my charts.  There are a few reasons for that: one of them being I am working on becoming a funded trader via Top Step Trader, so I have set goals for myself, and […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 15

Hey Traders! What a week it has been! We all knew it would be a fun filled rollercoaster ride, chock full of opportunities, when we looked at our charts Sunday night (May 5th) and saw the Dow was down significantly. Unsettling time, for sure – you never know if Trump is going to tweet in […]

What Vin Diesel can teach us about trading

You may not think Vin Diesel had many lessons for traders.  But he has several.  I mean, first of all there is the obvious one.  Fast and Furious.  He’s been in a few of those.  But ideally trading is neither Fast nor Furious.  Certainly not with Inteligex.  It should be almost the opposite. From there [...]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 13

Hey Traders!   Missed a week of writing; been concentrating a lot on my trading, and wrapping a few things up before embarking on a Top Step Trader combine, which I am hoping to share with you.  Great way to invest in your trading education, which is key to success, and then simply trading it [...]

Lessons in time and emotion

Today Notre-Dame de Paris, a cathedral over nine hundred years old, something that had survived many wars, succumbed to the most basic of things.  A fire. It was lost so quickly. Destroyed in a few hours. A tragedy. The building can of course be rebuilt.  But it will take much time and then one must [...]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 12

Stick to the Plan!   Hey Traders! I'm writing to you on a bleary Friday morning.  Another week has passed us by, and what I personally do at the end of every single week, is take inventory of where I am at in relation to where I want to be. Given that I have had [...]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 11

Lots of great things going on at Inteligex!  Peter and Mark are both working VERY hard to make this the best software possible, and a HUGE shout out for winning the ADVFN International Financial Award - Best Trading Alert Service! That is [...]

The Definition of Madness

We often read that the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. The implication is that if something isn’t working, change it and change it again. It turns out for traders and investors, life may not be as simple as that. According to London-based Essentia Analytics, […]

From Red Monday to Green Wednesday

From Red Monday to Green Wednesday At Inteligex we are often asked if we are nervous when we trade and if we change our trading habits if we have a bad day or a good day. The answer to both is no. Why? Because we stick to a routine that works. It works over time, […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 10

Hit and miss! Hey Traders! Had one of those weeks where it was hit and miss – busy with things that pop up in life… Guess that is one of the advantages of being a trader; we can manage our schedules and come and go (to some extent) as we please. I had the usual […]

First off, Peter mentioned that he wants to be ‘obsessed’ with providing the best customer service possible, so that each and every one of us has the best […]

Slow & Steady Wins The Race

120 points on the Dax. When we talk about Trader Emotion and Trader Psychology we think of all the times we’re unsure about what to do and let our adrenaline get the better of us. We enter or exit a trade and as soon as we’ve done it we know it was the wrong decision; […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 8

The Midas Touch Hey Traders, I wanted to experiment a bit and try Inteligex out on Gold. I don’t trade this market very often, but thought why not see how well it would work with this software? (the guys do say it’s a mathematical modeland willwork on any index!) I took 2 trades on Thursday […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 7

This week I wanted to show you a couple of trades on the eMini Nasdaq. Hey Traders, Going to keep this short and to the point this week. Two trades from Thursday, February 28th. Both were long trades, taken on a 15-minute chart. I am keeping Market Trend Signal on for convenience sake and as […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 6

Hi Traders! This week let’s take a look at everyone’s favourite market. (not mine, but it is generally the highest traded volume wise) Decided to go with a 10-minute time frame, just because this market can be a monster. I also kept the Market Trend Signal on, and always check the market bias dots to […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 5

Hey Traders! You know the old adage, “Show me a card, any card”? Well, I do NOT want to make any false claims or mislead in any way with my blogs. I would like to avoid all smoke and mirrors, so on that note, please send Peter or Mark an email off of the Inteligex website, […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 4

On a really good note, there have been some really cool and impressive features added to the Inteligex software, that will really make things […]

The Trouble With Stops

Where should I put my stop? That is the question people always ask us. The answer is simple, but at the same time it’s complicated: You need to put your stop where it won’t get hit. Let’s look at today to see exactly what we mean. This is the Dax this morning (31 January 2019). […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 3

This week I wanted to show you a couple of trades on the YM (E-Mini Dow) Going to try and keep this blog short and sweet, since that is pretty much how the last week of trading has been. Was nice to have the Holiday (Martin Luther King day for all you non-US residents); always […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 2

This week I thought I would give you a glimpse into 3 of my trades. I will also touch on emotions, because I find they truly play a large role in my performance, and I’m hoping some of you will respond – perhaps we can all work together, help each other, maybe even form a […]

My Inteligex Journey: Week 1

Hi Traders! I’m a futures trader, primarily the stock indices. (YM, NQ mainly). Have been trading nearly 10 years (off and on) and like the majority of all traders, knew going into this that 90% of all traders fail. I also read numerous times not to waste my time and energy searching for the “Holy […]

The Golden Globes

I just spent 2 hours watching these, live here in LA, as I waited for the start of the European markets. I wish I hadn’t. I learned nothing other than that in the event of my winning one, I should (a) look astonished (b) pretend I hadn’t rehearsed anything (c) say the other nominees were […]

2019 – The Year of Augmented Intelligence

Because we recognise the power of human expertise and experience. So our latest software release, our most advanced yet, is designed to augment your intelligence not replace it. […]

Largest One Day Dow Rise, Ever!

Inteligex saw it coming! The markets have had a rough time in the run up to Christmas, dropping over 2500 points in seven days trading. Inteligex users have had a field day, a very Merry Christmas! At the end of trading on Monday 17th December, Inteligex indicated an SB2 trade, that put us into “short […]

Slow, Slow, Brexit Slow – 85 Pips

Evening traders I just wanted to show you how with a little thought Inteligex generates profits even on a slow day. Cable has been a bit of a tiger recently, but today was always likely to be slow after the failed confidence vote in UK government last night. So. How did we see the daily […]

What’s in Store for Nasdaq and GBPUSD in 2019?

One of the advanced features of Inteligex is the predictive capability of the product. This works on any timeframe, but it is advanced so expect it to take you 2-3 months at least to fully understand how it works; we will be producing a video on this in the New Year. It is particularly useful […]

Biggest Ever Bitcoin Bet!

The chart I am highlighting today is focusing on something that is clearly currently in deep trouble. An 85% decline in price, and with more to come. And what is it?  Bitcoin. From $20,000 to $3,000 in just under 12 months.  All of the short trades signalled by Inteligex are highlighted but I show this […]

Inteligex vs Brexit

The British Prime Minister Theresa May is heading into a vote of confidence this evening, let’s see what the Cable (GBPUSD) has done today on Inteligex full auto-mode.     Well it’s been a vote of confidence in Inteligex. Markets hate uncertainty and you can see how the day played out, with 4 trades netting 97 […]

The Quants are Coming!!

Recently, a report was pushed that stated that Goldman Sachs has replaced 70% of their day traders with Artificial Intelligence based systems and is now recruiting more programmers than traders for its day trading offices. Wow! Let that sink in for a moment – if such an established institution is doing that, then the rest […]

Algos & Psychology

They say the hardest aspect of trading is psychology. If you have been trading for a while then you will verify that this is indeed true. Trading is such a mentally driven business that two people can have exactly the same strategy but apply it in totally different ways and achieve completely different results. The […]
