STAR-ES Automatic
Version 2
STAR-ES is an automatic trading system active during the Electronic Trading Hours. It was developed to capture one small sized movement in the S&P 500 Futures market, based on a proprietary technique. It can be used as a decision support system, or as a manual entry system requiring just one simple OCO type bracket order, or as a totally automated trading system requiring no user input whatsoever. The system trades just once a day. As soon as the entry pattern has been recognized, a signal will appear immediately after the start of the Globex session at 5:00 pm CME Exchange Time in Chicago, Sunday to Thursday, with a market order. The system will stay with that position overnight, and if necessary, into the day session until the profit target has been reached, or the stop loss has been triggered. If neither of these trades have occurred, then the system will automatically exit the trade at 4:14 pm Exchange time just before the close of the CME. The position will not carry forward into...

There are about 100 signals each year, with an almost equal number of long and short trades.

Money Management Rules – Automatic Mode
By default, the system will calculate its own profit target and stop loss dynamically for every new trade. This is the preferred mode.

Money Management Rules – Manual Mode
When switched to manual trading, the default profit target is $300 and the stop loss is $850. However, the trader can enter any amounts according to his or her risk tolerance.

TradeStation Securities is not licensed to operate where we live in British Columbia, so we use the same code as you ported to MultiCharts and connected to Interactive Brokers. Even if we were on similar trading platforms, the latency of the infrastructure between our machines to the Exchange via TradeStation’s TradeManager servers, would yield different results. In addition, where exotic bars are concerned, each platform will construct them slightly differently due to their synthetic nature. Anecdotal feedback has suggested that the speed of fills at different brokers varies due to their own technology and trading volume. For these and other reasons, our results are bound to be different. We share our live performance in the spirit of camaraderie to encourage by providing broad evidence of the possibility of success, and they have to be viewed in that spirit, and not used for absolute comparison. Also, make note that Stop Loss orders may not limit your losses in all market conditions. There is no aspect of trading which is scientific and therefore precisely repeatable in all trading rooms. At our end, we view each trade with as much certainty as flying with a wing and a prayer. You should too! © 2016 Oceanic International All rights reserved.

Truly Magnificent

By:Chris T
After bothering Sal for a live trading historical performance of the algorithm, I opted for Sal's 10 day trial and took the plunge with live trading. This system has been a great performer so far, netting me well above its monthly cost in less than a week. Note that there are no promises with immediate profits and even great algorithms can start with a drawdown from the get-go (especially) when trading live, so keep that in mind. Like what the other reviews echo, Sal's customer service has been top notch and has exceeded all my expectations.

TLDR; Great strategy, worth its weight in gold. Sal is an absolutely great guy that has your interest at heart.
Consistent Auto-trading System.

I have been testing/paper trading STAR-ES Automatic for a few weeks now ... and will soon put it to trade live. Results have been very good and consistent. If someone could calculate returns based also on the time the system trades then results are way better. With an average of 80 to 100 trades per year time-in the market-adjusted returns are superior. If we add to that Sal's amazing customer service ... well then it is a no brainer to trade with it. Keep up the good work Sal!
