Alerts: Nothing, but your futures account. You can pick and choose which trades you decide to follow and which ones you decide to skip, if any. Also, you can get our alerts and trade the correlated ETFs instead. For example, you receive and alert for eMiniS&P500 and copy the trade using $SPY, the ETF, instead. $TLT for US Ten Year Note Trades.
Automation: If you choose to automate, you’ll need a futures account with one of our supported brokers. We recommend using $13,000 to $17,000 of initial capital to trade ALL four or six algorithms – again, if FULLY automated. However, smaller accounts can choose to only automate/trade individual algorithms, if desired! You can simply turn certain algorithms on and off with the click of a button. However, if you have a smaller account, we suggest receiving the alerts based on previous experiences.
