Program Info

The Currency Trading Program is a short term, trend following system which trades in the Forex markets exclusively. The Currency Program uses an intra-day time frame and attempts to capture long-term moves within that time frame. Eight currency pairs are traded and the system is 99% mechanical based on technical data and price patterns, with the only discretion being the ability to halt trading in the event of world catastrophic events, or to add or delete markets.

The Currency Trading Program employs its own built in risk management procedures to limit risk to individual trades and provide overall portfolio protection.
