Services Memo:

Below are specific changes to our service offerings effective immediately that focus / pivot our start-up business exclusively toward a data driven entity and not a trading and/or trade-driven alert entity.

This distinction (a focus toward technical data only) provides a clear pathway to compliance as may be required by various regulatory entities in various jurisdictions through-out the world. It also provides our clients at all levels a clear understanding of our function in the marketplace.

For purposes of clarity there may be follow-up memos to address any items that come forward in future.

The first memo specific to the various regulatory, operational and service(s) topics contained herein was published Feb 11, 2018 and can be found here:

Much of the information below is redundant, but in an effort to cover with clarity all manner of operational procedure it is required.

Coaching

  • Coaching, in future (as it has), will include all levels of trade execution, psychology and technical trading knowledge required to trade various instruments.

  • In past, we have engaged in commercial related trade agreements and / or power of attorney trade relations under various scenarios.
  • Going forward, no trading will be executed by our staff or directors at any level of any type for any reason. Any association to private equity funds, institutional customers and/or commercial agreements will specifically be technical know-how, technical set-ups and/or alerts and/or data driven environments.

Sub-Account Structures and Power of Attorney Agreements: 

Compound Trading is separate and apart from broker-dealers related to the “Private Capital Pool” that has appeared or represented in ad copy, general matter on social media profiles and posts, and others, and acts in the capacity of a market data provider only.

Currently, correspondences with leads related to the private investment fund have been put on hiatus, or have been told that there will be no discussion about said fund until the compliance framework(s) are in place by the registered broker-dealers for whom commercial data provider agreements are in place with or may be in place with in future.

While Compound Trading has positioned itself in this capacity following a well-characterized “decentralized hedge fund model”, any language or mention of the Private Capital Pool will clearly state the relationship between registered broker-dealer partner(s) who are responsible for the maintenance of a financial advising or hedge fund environment and our capacity as market data providers. Any inquiries, leads, or questions related to said hedge fund will be referred directly to said registered broker-dealers.

Back-Test and Historical Data Trails

Pursuant to the changes remarked upon above going forward, all previous data trails (blog posts, static pages) on the website (CompoundTrading.com) will be hand-audited and edited to reflect these points (where possible). All old versions of the website (revisions, mirrors, etc.) are available on the server back-end should interested parties request them.

As mentioned in the previous memo dated Feb 11, 2018, between now and March 1, 2018 our website and various offering(s) will be updated and specific communication sent to customers as needed and as it applies.

Additions and Edits:

Feb 13, 2018 Edit

BTW just finished resetting all our systems/ alarms for the new alerts system. The operational pivot is an upgrade to previous- the buy/ sell triggered alerts in essence provide the same alert signal based on chart set-up but will also include the visual chart set-up & thesis….

for each alert & life cycle of trade as it progresses vs. just a personal trader alert. In other words, the complete thesis and structure of the trade set-up will be encompassed in a more clear data driven technical structure vs. random alerts from our trader(s) based on trades.


Compound Trading Member Memorandum

Feb 3, 2017

Just a quick note / ramble to update our members on immediate and longer term developments for our charting reports, trade room and various stock trading services:

  • Morning Reports. Friday reports, those we are processing overnight – some do not require mid-week updates, will be VERY BRIEF mid week reports and full reports will be updated on weekend. All levels for all algorithmic charting models remain the same and our members have the existing levels.
    • $DXY Model – $DXY US Dollar / $USDJPY are at support decisions.
    • $GOLD is at a support decision.
    • $SILVER is at a support decision.
    • $VIX is trading within the model and classic indicators.
    • $OIL is testing important resistance decisions.
    • $SPY is trading within the model and classic indicators.
    • Swing Trading members have all current levels (more on updates below).
  • Algorithmic Chart Models Completing. This weekend we will be completing the last of what we consider Phase I of our algorithmic models. Phase I is defined as completing algorithmic chart models (for our traders to use on a traditional stock chart as an edge) to include all the important applicable levels for both classic charting and algorithmic chart modeling such as;
    • Classic indicator charting;
      • Fibonacci levels,
      • Horizontal trend-lines (support and resistance from various time cycles),
      • Diagonal trend-lines (support and resistance from various time cycles),
      • Swing trading range (margins of highest probability),
      • Various other classic indicators such as moving averages, MACD and more as applicable and most important to the specific equity charting.
    • Algorithmic chart modeling;
      • Alpha algo targets (specific time and price – see EPIC the Oil Algo for examples),
      • Alpha algo diagonal trend-lines (support and resistance),
      • Algo diagonal trend-lines based on Fibonacci modeling,
      • Algorithm time/price cycles (terminations),
      • Algorithm trading quadrants (related to time/price cycles and historical trading),
      • And more (all those fun indicators we are processing historical data on and representing on charts for our traders to use as an edge).
  • Miscellaneous Points. A few points about the status of our chart model development;
    • $DXY US Dollar is complete and testing very high so it will be published in full (testing similar to Gold, Silver and Oil models at 80% – 93% accuracy),
    • $VIX and $SPY will be published but are testing with the least predictability of the six.
    • The Gold and Silver algorithms – we are finished testing alpha algo lines – we have not been including these in reports to date (used for support and resistance) and algo targets (both similar to EPIC the Oil Algo charting)… new member updates will have those indicators on the charting like EPIC does. So this is actually big news for our Silver and Gold charting. For those wondering about the different kinds of algorithmic model indicators we endeavor to include in our models EPIC the Oil Algo is the best one to view to get an idea of the process and where we are going with each.
    • The swing trading service has been going extremely well, members have been sending all kinds of positive feedback. We will be significantly updating it this weekend. We also have been running model trading accounts for each swing service that we hope to get out soon – interesting results – very, very positive methodology evidence transpiring.
  • Profit and Loss Statements. My personal profit and loss statements for my large swing account and small account build are on our weekend publishing list too.
  • Daily Trading Results. I am behind on posting some of the daily trading results – will get those done also.
  • Your Feedback is Important! We have had a lot of email feedback from members, if you have any feedback please send it in, it really helps our planning and these to-do lists. It’s a community effort – your input is valuable. Ideas, thoughts, things we are doing right, things we can improve… please send us a note.
  • Weekly Webinars! We are also going to post a weekly webinar schedule this weekend for;
    • Members that would like a more in depth understanding of our charting and how to specifically use each chart for each equity will be able to attend weekly. Webinars will be done for our six algorithmic charting models, our swing trading service and our trading room. There will be one webinar each week at a set time for each service, every week. So yes, eight short webinars about 30 minutes each or 4 hours a week. If there is a day and/or time best for you weekly to take part please let us know for consideration!
    • Subscribers Considering our Services. We will be running a weekly webinar for those considering signing up that want to know more about our systems – we get so many inquiries – this way we can refer inquiring minds to a weekly 30 minute webinar that explains our algorithmic chart modeling and our swing service. So this will make it 4.5 hours of webinars done weekly.
  • Promo Discounts. So we did extend them for the members that asked, remember the promo codes shut down on weekend.

I think that covers our news, updates, morning charting advisory and stuff on our to-do list so that everyone knows our direction!

Thanks again!
