Emotional decision making is often a trader's worst enemy. System trading removes this emotional element from trading. In fact, many of the top-performing Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) rigidly follow proprietary trading systems.

A trading system eliminates gut feelings, second-guessing, whims, uninformed decision making and other emotions which many times are responsible for traders' losses. An added benefit of trading a system is that it eliminates the anxiety, time and effort of formulating a trade.

We believe a good trading system does not give you any choices-it should tell you exactly what, when, where and how to buy. Additionally, it should tell you clearly, in an easy to understand manner, exactly when to buy or sell.

How systems work

Trading systems provide discipline to overcome the fear and greed that paralyze traders and prevent them from making proper decisions. Systems remove the pressure of making specific buy/sell decisions on a trade-by-trade basis. Each order placed is governed by a predetermined set of rules that does not deviate based on anything other than market action. Finally, a system will include specific money management parameters and the mechanical placement of these orders ensures those rules are being followed.

There are many trading systems to choose from. On a continual basis, Vision evaluates trading systems and selects the ones our analysis concludes are the very best available. Then, on behalf of our customers, we negotiate a deeply discounted rate to either lease or buy the system or receive the system's signals by E-mail or fax.

Many systems require constant monitoring where a trader must be "glued" to a trading terminal. Using a broker can eliminate virtually all the work associated with trading a system. Additionally, a broker can assist you in placing the system orders in the market as an objective third party. It eliminates the temptation to deviate from the system. Brokers watch their screens all day so traders do not have to follow the markets. Ask your broker about how the system you select can be traded for you.
