While we work through an issue that occurred to Limit-order systems from 8/31/2022, signal execution is suspended for all systems today 9/1/2022. We'll execute the fills later tonight and then turn on publishing at that time for 9/2/2022.

Thank you, Cone! Very happy you fixed this so promptly.

It was a worry yesterday that my system order to Buy SPY (the S&P 500 ETF) sent before the Open of 9/1/22 would not get recorded and sent to subscribers.

In such a fast market it was a concern not to let my subscribers down. In the end, subscribers got notified on time and the correct Entry fill was recorded at 392.88. This morning we Exited that trade at the market open of 400.30 for a one-day return of 1.88%. The returns for the trade are all showing correctly.

If we work out the APR on that one-day return, it would be 10,425.29% compounded.

But clearly displaying an APR from one trade extrapolated out to a year should never be done because it makes a strenuous assumption that my system earns 1.88% every day like clockwork.

Sadly, my strategy only produces trades like this a maximum of once a week in real-time ;)

Perhaps you can look at the use of APR on the leaderboard since strategies with just a few trades are getting an artificially inflated APR compared to more robust ones with longer track records. Although mathematically correct, it may be more informative if none less than one-year gets an APR. No one gains if prospective subscribers don't realize the APR is fantasy when extrapolated from short periods.

Anyway, thank you for all your efforts. I know it's so much pressure when unexpected errors in code happen in a live environment. No matter how much testing before deploying, there is always that one bug lurking that falls through the gap. But you did great work fixing it promptly. Thanks.

Wishing you a relaxing Labor Day holiday weekend :)

Thanks, we do limit this to systems that are more than 30 days old, so we wouldn't see your 10k% APR in the list, and these inflated APRs for systems that have had a lucky 30 days should normalize over time. But we'll consider it and possibly lengthen the period.

I have been following your 90-10 strategy for five months.
I am intrigued by your work. I have one question.
How do you publish the exit points?
