The R.H. FTSE100 Future Program.             

The R.H. FTSE Futures program is designed for trading the FTSE 100 Futures Index .The program carries out technical analysis calculations on the index daily price data and  automatically inserts arrow signals into the chart. These identify the direction of the expected trend in the index ; an upward trend is denoted by a Blue 'Sign of Strength'  and a downward trend by a 'Sign of Weakness' which is Red.  If a trend is likely to pause, trade sideways or end then a White 'Consolidation' arrow is given. The manner in which these signals appear is shown in the various Screen Shots.
The program runs in either Omega 'Tradestation 2000i' or 'Supercharts' and requires only the index data; consisting of the previous days Open, High, Low, Close, Volume and Open Interest figures to be input each day. This may be done automatically or manually, in just one minute, if the trader prefers. For full information on the 'award winning' range of Omega " Technical Analysis" software please go to the Technical Analysis page.  In addition to running the Futures program these platforms also provide the user with the ability do do their own technical analysis, charting and portfolio tracking on other investments in which they also have an interest. We provide a 12year data history with our systems and also provide information of different Real Time and End of Day Data Feed systems.

The FTSE Futures program is a slightly longer term program and will give signals extending over two to three trading weeks but also the main signal may stay in for three months if a trend is maintained. During a trend the market will cycle up and down within the range of the program without giving a consolidation signal and thus introduce draw downs. The effect of this may be reduced by running other shorter term programs which provide additional information to determine when to close a trade or open a fresh one. The three Screen Shots illustrate this using different programs; B.1. shows the RH Trend added which changes the colour of the price bar to green or red depending on whether the shorter term direction is likely to be up or down. Thus the main signal is only traded if supported by the price bar.

Similarly B.2. shows the 'R.H. One to One' program on the FTSE cash index on the same time base and presented as a dual chart ,one above the other, for easy signal recognition. As before it is only traded when the signals support each other and although it will likely increase the number of trades it will reduce the risk of loss and of suffering draw downs till the market recovers.

The third chart shows the application of a secondary indicator which is used in conjunction with a set of simple rules. As previously the market is only traded in the direction of the main signal.  

A comprehensive Manual of  instructions is provided which covers the loading of the software into the Omega platform, the updating of data and exactly how to use the trading programs. We also can provide a home study course which covers professional trading and the trading of Options. A synopsis of the course can be found by linking from the Grail Home Page.
