Dollar Trader System
Dollar Trader is a simple system, that uses pivot points, moving averages and momentum to determine trade entry. It trades on average 5-6 times per year. Before 2002, Dave had a primitive yet functional DOS based application to generate the trade signals. Signals are now generated through the use of a TradeStation compatible module.
All trades are executed during the trading day and therefore require stop orders to be placed. In addition, Dollar Trader trades the 24-hour currency markets and stop orders must work throughout the day and night. This system uses quite a few parameters but this doesn’t bother me because they have not really changed in 14 years. This indicates very little evidence of over curve fitting. Dollar Trader trades just three different markets: Japanese Yen, Swiss Franc and Euro Currency. Originally it just traded the Dollar Index, but with the introduction of the Euro Currency and its correlation to the Dollar, Dave felt that trading both would be redundant. Therefore, he dropped the Dollar and added the other currencies.
