Strategy Description
System supports manual and autotrading. Signals are sent out realtime between the hours of 0930 and 1600 EST (East Coast USA regular equity market hours).Accounts trading this system must be:
1) Margin accounts
2) Options enabled
3) Able to sell covered options
The minimum recommended account size is $5,000.
Silver Alpha WILL NOT violate the "Patternday trader" rule, meaning this system will never execute 4 or more day trades within a consecutive 5 day period. This control exists for subscribers with accounts below $25k.
Silver Alpha strategies vary based on market conditions, but they are all limitedrisk strategies that look to exploit volatility, time decay and market direction. Strategies include, but are not limited to, butterflies, long options condors, backspreads, calenders, debit and credit spreads, straddles and strangles. Due to the volatile nature of this market we do not employ any naked short strategies. Directionally, we at times be neutral, bullish or bearish depending what we feel the right market condition is. We apply hedging strategies whenever a directional stance is taken.
Research: Technical analysis, fundamental analysis, COT (Commitment of Trader) data, bullion lease rates and forwardthinking market intelligence augmented by macroeconomic and Fed policy analysis.
In addition to trading signals you will be provided with weekly commentary in the system forum and highlyresponsive customer service in the form of less than 24hr response to any private messages. I usually respond within 1 to 4 hours of receiving your message.
Why focus on silver?
1) Silver has been one of the best performing commodities over the past 3, 5 and 10 years. That trend will continue for another 10 years.
2) Recent drastic changes to global monetary policy are casting a spotlight on the meaning of "fiat" vs "hard" currency. As a result an increasing number of financial players are reawakening to the fact that gold and silver are currencies. This is evident in the massive increase in volumes in the SLV ETF, the liquidity of which now occasionally surpasses even the S&P 500 ETF (SPY).
3) I have real world professional experience trading silver. By combining my options riskmanagement experience with a focus on silver I aim to provide my subscribers with a competitive advantage and produce outsized returns.
Silver is known for its volatility, a welldeserved reputation. My tutelage in the "art" of trading silver has not come easy; think many years and many tears. By subscribing to this system, you are, in essence, directly benefiting (or suffering?) from my harrowing market education in return for a monthly subscription fee. As the gold/silver ratio continues its compression from 70to1 (2001) to the inevitable 7:1 (2012? 2015? Ask Bernanke!), I recognize that there will be increasing demand from traders and investors for a system attuned to the specifics of this white metal market.
You will not see me advertised by any brokers because my strategy is not brokercommissionfriendly, it aims to provide best possible absolute returns to subscribers. Hence the name "Silver Alpha", not "Silver Broker's Dream".
Liquidity is a priority objective, behind only performance and capital preservation.
Closed trade data is delayed for 5 days in order to allow nonsubscribers to see an uptodate snapshot of performance while maintaining the integrity of subscriber privilege.
About Me:
 BSc in Economics from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Finance concentration.
 8 years of financial services experience spanning corporate finance, investment banking, commodities and hedge funds.
I have been trading the silver market for years using the principles represented by the Silver Alpha system. I have recently become an independent money manager and decided to take advantage of the C2 platform due to no longer being contractually restricted by an employer.
NOTE: This is an options system for investors seeking outsized returns over time, not an FX system that one can overleverage in order to opportunistically take advantage of a low drawdown. I've noticed that FX systems are incredibly popular here on C2 for this very reason, which is comical since one large drawdown would wipeout your entire account using that strategy.
Welcome to a new pattern of absolute return, and Silver Alpha.
About the results you see on this Web site
Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.
These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have underor overcompensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown.
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.
Material assumptions and methods used when calculating results
The following are material assumptions used when calculating any hypothetical monthly results that appear on our web site.
 Profits are reinvested. We assume profits (when there are profits) are reinvested in the trading strategy.
 Starting investment size. For any trading strategy on our site, hypothetical results are based on the assumption that you invested the starting amount shown on the strategy's performance chart. In some cases, nominal dollar amounts on the equity chart have been rescaled downward to make current goforward trading sizes more manageable. In these cases, it may not have been possible to trade the strategy historically at the equity levels shown on the chart, and a higher minimum capital was required in the past.
 All fees are included. When calculating cumulative returns, we try to estimate and include all the fees a typical trader incurs when AutoTrading using AutoTrade technology. This includes the subscription cost of the strategy, plus any pertrade AutoTrade fees, plus estimated broker commissions if any.
 "Max Drawdown" Calculation Method. We calculate the Max Drawdown statistic as follows. Our computer software looks at the equity chart of the system in question and finds the largest percentage amount that the equity chart ever declines from a local "peak" to a subsequent point in time (thus this is formally called "Maximum Peak to Valley Drawdown.") While this is useful information when evaluating trading systems, you should keep in mind that past performance does not guarantee future results. Therefore, future drawdowns may be larger than the historical maximum drawdowns you see here.
Trading is risky
There is a substantial risk of loss in futures and forex trading. Online trading of stocks and options is extremely risky. Assume you will lose money. Don't trade with money you cannot afford to lose.
