Frequently Asked Questions Part 44

No, this isn’t part 44.

Q: Are the results hypothetical or real?
A: Both. We’ve been live since 2015 AND we’ve tested our systems since 2007 in order to show how they would have handled the 2008-09 Financial Crisis. They outperformed in the back test (263% and 300% return in 2008). No surprise, as they are built for volatility!

Q: How Do Futures Work?
A: Generally speaking,  there is a minimum tick size and a multiplier. The dollar amount earned/lost for the minimum move is the minimum tick size * multiplier. For example, the eMini has minimum move/tick size of 0.25. It has a multiplier of $50. So every tick is ($50 * .25) or $12.50/contract. So if you bought one contract at 2074 and sold at 2075, you would net $50 less commissions. Also, a 20 point gain would result in a $1,000 profit. (20 points/.25 min tick size) = number of ticks moved = 80. 80 * $12.5/tick = $1,000 or calculated in points, there are 4 minimum tick moves or 4 * $12.50 in 1 point ($50). So 20 points * $50 = $1,000. The latter is much simpler!
