Diversity5 Futures Trading Strategy

The Diversity5 Futures Trading Strategy is a short term price pattern based system designed to trade the Emini S&P, Gold, Crude Oil, 30 Year Bond, and US Dollar Index futures.  The system will trade each market about 2 times a month with an average hold time of approximately 5 days.

The Diversity5 Strategy does not use any traditional technical indicators and instead looks at price bar relationships for trading signals.  When an acceptable pattern exists, the system enters at the market open.  Each trade is managed with a protective stop and a profit target until one of the orders is elected.

The Diversity5 Strategy uses daily bar data for trading signals and each market has a unique strategy designed around that markets price patterns.  Here are a few examples of the Diversity5 Strategy on the chart:

Crude Oil

Dollar Index

S&P 500 Index

The Diversity5 strategy has evolved over the years with new models being released over time.  The Emini S&P strategy was released in 2014, the Dollar Index in 2015, Bonds in 2016, and Oil and Gold in 2017.  The systems have not been re-optimized since release.

Here is the recent out of sample equity curve for the Diversity5 combination trading each signal at 2% risk per trade:

Risk Disclosures

Commodity Trading involves high risks and you can lose a significant amount of money. Commodity trading is not suitable for many investors. Any performance results listed in all marketing materials represents simulated computer results over past historical data, and not the results of an actual account. All opinions expressed anywhere on this website are only opinions of the author. The information contained here was gathered from sources deemed reliable, however, no claim is made as to its accuracy or content. Different testing platforms can produce slightly different results. Our systems are only recommended for well capitalized and experienced futures traders.

CFTC-required risk disclosure for hypothetical results

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
