I am pleased to offer a signal service based on a 100% mechanical and automated trading strategy I call VIXEN.

What Is VIXEN?

As may have guessed already the strategy tracks implied volatility and in my not so humble opinion is the best trading system I have ever developed to date (and I’ve done this for a long time).
