System Trading

LAMM Based Allocation

You asked for an auto trading solution and Evil Speculator delivered. In collaboration with our partners at Sweet Futures I have developed a program that is flexible, secure, and allows you to retain complete control over your trading accounts at all times.

This is how it works: In essence all trading activity produced by a master account is copied to one or more client accounts via what’s called a Lot Allocation Management Module (LAMM). Clients have the option to setup a trading account at Sweet Futures. Authorization to accept the signals issued by the master account is given via a letter of direction (LOD) – you print it, sign it, send it, and that’s it. This arrangement is extremely flexible and withdrawals can be made at any time.

On the Evil Speculator end you simply sign up for the package of your choice after your account at Sweet Futures has been activated. Currently I am offering two systems: CrazyIvan and Scalpius. You’ll simply pay monthly subscription fees, there is no profit sharing and no annual management fee. All profits or losses accrued are yours to keep and are immediately accessible – simple.

Be advised that the minimum account size for the futures account is $100,000 and on the forex side it is $50,000. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email at admin@ – I’ll be happy to answer any questions or if you’re interested put you in touch with Mark who’s my contact over at Sweet Futures.

CrazyIvan – The Slow Grinder

I am pleased to offer an automated trading strategy which represents a modified subset of price patterns originally invented by Ivan Krastins. I decided to call it CrazyIvan in a misguided homage of its original creator. The system is completely mechanical and runs on 480 minute charts which trades on five of the most popular forex pairs (i.e. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, AUD/JPY, USD/JPY) as well as the gold futures (GC).

System Edge

The past two years of live trading activity supports the envisioned concept, which is a system that ekes out a small but consistent edge over many trades per year (on average 300 trades per year with some filtered out by our EC filter). The system is expected to generate 50R in a normal year, around 30R or less in a bad year, and over 100R in an exceptional year. It takes an average of 20 campaigns a week. I have not seen a peak-valley drawdown over 15% though it is absolutely possible. As you already know – past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Our live trade log is available here – please note that this is a live Google spreadsheet that is automatically updated after each completed campaign.

Scalpius – Short Term Trend Trading

Volatility is a double edged sword – it is the force that drives all markets and therefore leads to profits as well as losses. But more often than not it seems that volatility happens when we don’t expect it, but rarely when we do want the tape to start moving. Well, that is until now. In late 2014 I developed a predictive volatility indicator I named Darth Mole that ever since has been delivering very accurate alerts ahead of volatility surges across various popular futures and forex symbols.

The next step was to produce a short term trend trading system that would take advantage of volatility surges. After six months of hard work I introduced Scalpius which runs on a 60-minute chart on three forex pairs (i.e. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY) as well as the NQ futures.

System Edge

The system has been running live since August of 2015, thus there is still limited forward data available. Based on extensive back testing statistics and the live results since its introduction I expect Scalpius to produce between 50R to 75R per year on average with about 10 campaigns per week. Once again it is important to understand that past performance is no guarantee of future results.
