Membership Account Questions
Why did you create the C2Vtrader trading system?Top
After hearing stories for years about how people have been beat up in the markets, we felt it was our responsibility to help out as many of the average traders and investors as we could.
What type of trading system is this?Top
The C2Vtrader trading system is a swing trading system that is based on a proven computer-based trend trading methodology. Many years, and countless hours have been spent unlocking the secrets of the stock market, but its our members and their needs that drive the service.
How long have you been doing this?Top
Officially, we have been releasing trading suggestions to members since the open of April 27th, 2010. The system has generated signals for many years of past market data with very similar results as our official releases.
Do you send out new recommendations to members via email or on the website?Top
We send out email notifications advising members to login to the C2Vtrader website to view the latest trades and market news updates. We, at minimum, will update members each and every week.
Do you send out email updates daily?Top
We usually send out email notifications if there is important information that we feel you need to know about – An email is sent out for each trading notification, and usually one email per week or so for market news updates and information.
Does the system trade the SSO and SDS ETF's exclusively?Top
No. Although the C2V Indicator is always trading either the SSO or the SDS ETF shares, we do trade other stocks and ETF’s alongside the SSO/SDS pair very frequently. However, we certainly encourage you to make the trades that you have researched and are comfortable with. You do not need to trade all our suggestions, but only the ones you have researched and feel the most comfortable doing so.
How often do trade recommendations come out?Top
Typically, the C2V Indicator will change general market directions 5-15 times per year for SSO/SDS trades. We will trade other stocks and ETF's mainly based on those broader market signals – It all depends on what type of market we are in.
How many trades can I expect trading this system per year?Top
Typically, the system will generate 5-15 broad market direction changes per year. We are likely to trades multiple ETF’s and stocks along with the SSO/SSO ETF pair. You could have 20-50 trading opportunities per year or more trading our system.
Do you use stops in your system? And if so, how large of a stop?
Typically, we don’t use Stop Losses on the SSO/SDS pairs, however, we do use stop losses on our other ETF and stock trades.
The reason why we don’t usually use stops on the SSO/SDS pair trades is because frequently when new trades are issued, the markets tend to fluctuate more than usual during that time period, thus increasing the odds of getting stopped out before a big move. Several of our loses were due to being stopped out at tough times in the market. You are welcome to use stop losses in your trading, but we are trading the larger market swings, which our system is very good at flagging. A typical trailing stop loss will be at or around 4-6%, or at major support or resistance level.Top
How long, on average, does each trade signal last?Top
SSO/SDS trades last roughly 2-3 weeks on average, but can trade much longer, depending on market conditions. Other stock and ETF trades vary dramatically also given market conditions. But as a general rule, we will exit most trades in roughly the same time frame.
What is your typical draw-down?Top
Our system doesn’t utilize draw-down information in calculating our trading signals. Sometimes the C2V Indicator will come out right before a major market move, or right after a major market move - in the long run (i.e, sometimes you get a great fill, and sometimes not), so tracking this information is most likely fairly insignificant over many trades - why complicate things.
How long do you plan on doing this?Top
We are absolutely dedicated to helping our members build substantial trading and retirement portfolios for many, many years into the future. It is our passion to re-allocate some of the money from the big players, and distribute that money back into the hands of the smaller player - that is the motivation that drives our entire system.
Does the Past Performance page show all trades the system has ever made?Top
The Past Performance page shows all trades suggested to C2Vtrader members, winners and losers, except of course, the most current trade recommendations.
Are Stock or ETF Options trade recommendations offered as a service?Top
Not yet, but that will probably be the next major service offered here at C2Vtrader.com.
How do you use the C2V Indicator and C2V Oscillator to calculate trading signals?Top
Much of how we calculate trading signals is proprietary information, but we certainly look for confirmations from both systems, as well as other valid market data, to justify official trade releases - finding "Measures of Merit" in trading.
Is the C2V methodology completely computerized?Top
Yes. The whole point of the our trading system is to leave the emotional reactions out of our trading - those emotional reactions can cause the most severe losses while trading or invest, in our experience. All our trades are based on the overall trend direction of the S&P500. C2Vtrader is a technically-based trading service. The media, fundamentals, and other irrelevant market data is not used in our methodology. As a matter of fact, we strongly encourage you to avoid that information as it is designed, we believe, to mislead you into the wrong trading positions.
Do you track Futures contracts or Options on Futures?Top
We do not. We suggest a company specializing in Futures trading if you want to trade in that avenue.
Are Entry or Exit prices included with each trade suggestion?Top
We have never released specific Entry or Target prices for any official trade thus far – we wanted to make the system as easy as possible for the average trader or investor. Maybe in the future we offer this type of granularity to members. Having said that, we very frequently talk and highlight important support and resistance areas where changes are likely to occur. The C2V Indicator uses none of the popular market indicators to calculate changes in trend - it is all a proprietary computer-based model.
What is a “Re-Buy”?Top
If a trade recommendation has previously been released to members, but at a certain point after the recommendation there is a potential additional buy point on the security, a "Re-Buy" may be issued. This helps new members trade the security, which otherwise they would have been on the sidelines for the trade.
How much back-testing was performed before official trade suggestions were released to members?Top
We literally ran the program using actual stock market data ranging from 2 to 15 years back in market history. We are always running new studies, thinking of new ways to disect the market for more accurate indications of what's to come. The C2V Indicator performed very similiarly as it does currently - A roughly 80% success rate.
Are the C2V Indicator trading signals good for other types of trades?Top
Although we do not endorse alternate usages of our signals, we have many C2Vtrader members that use our signals for various types of other trades, such as timing signals for the E-mini S&P 500 futures, the QQQ’s, and the DIA ETF’s, among others.
