Numbers & facts
SPtrading puts in your hands the power of a methodology that has been
developed by and for professional traders. With one trading signal
at the beginning of each session and one at its end, our trading
methodology will free you from minute-by-minute scrutiny of the
market. The pattern recognition approach will help anticipate market
moves rather than lag them, and the high frequency of trades -
typically one every other day - will lower the risk associated with
each individual transaction.
