Striker celebrates 20 years of providing transparency to futures industry with actual results for trading systems and CTAs
Press Release (Chicago, IL) --- Striker Securities, Inc., "Striker" celebrates 20 years in business as a commodity futures brokerage firm that services both individual and professional clients. Striker specializes in the execution and tracking of 3rd party trading systems designed by traders and Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs). Striker publishes on its website and in its newsletter the performance results, from actual trading, of a broad base of the 3rd party trading systems publicly available. Striker's dedicated professionals focus exclusively on customer service, including unbiased system consulting, dedicated trade execution, and personalized risk and reward solutions, along with rigorous quantitative analysis.

Striker also provides other industry brokerage firms a unique "white label" package that allows them to service their clients with products based on trading systems that show full transparency. At present, over thirty (30) brokerage firms use the Striker white label. System developers and CTAs benefit as they are paid a monthly subscription fee. Striker, currently, is executing systems at fifteen (15) of the futures industry's leading clearing firms.

Striker is a registered IB with the NFA since 1997 and has supported the industry's traders since 2008 as a sponsor of the CTA Expo conferences.

President William Gallwas remarks, "At Striker, we do not develop or promote our own trading systems, and there is no house trading, in order to avoid possible "conflict of interest" with our clients. Our professional service is based on the coherent policies we laid out in 1998 and entrust not only customers but also system developers, which is why many system developers and CTAs open their accounts and trade at Striker."

Starting next week, the company will provide tweets designed to help traders. Striker twitter address is: @StrikerSec

There is a risk of loss in trading. It is the nature of commodity and securities trading that where there is the opportunity for profit, there is also the risk of loss. Commodity trading involves a certain degree of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Derivative transactions, including futures, are complex and carry the risk of substantial losses. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Please read additional risk matters on our web site, It is important you understand all the risks involved with trading, and you should only trade with risk capital. This communication is intended for the sole use of the intended recipient.

About this report The information and links on this website are for informational purposes. The risk of trading can be substantial and each investor and/or trader must consider whether this is a suitable investment. Past performance, whether actual or indicated by simulated historical tests of strategies, is not indicative of future results. Striker is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA"), the Managed Funds Association ("MFA"), and the National Introducing Broker Association ("NIBA"). Striker is registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC"), and was formerly registered with the Securities Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Additionally, Striker is a former member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation ("SIPC"). FINRA is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities business in the United States. Please read Striker Disclosure Statement for the additional disclosure.

The trading performance cited throughout our web site is based on actual trading history, unless otherwise noted. The starting account balance is based on the system developer recommendation. Striker tracks actual performance by recording and maintaining each trade ticket for each system generated. The performance information assumes that no additions or withdrawals have been made. The rate of return for all systems disclosed in the Striker Report is cumulative from the day the system actually started trading at Striker. We maintain a "life" track for all 3rd party systems. We do not necessarily base our records on any particular client account. No one particular customer has achieved these results. The percentage returns reflect inclusion of commissions and fees.The actual percentage gains/losses experienced by investors will vary depending on many factors, including, but not limited to: starting account balances, market behavior, the duration and extent of investor participation (whether or not a client takes all signals for a system) in the specified system and money management techniques.

Striker is a revolutionary concept in action: an international, professional team of brokers dedicated to trading only for clients. It bears repeating: unlike most other brokers, Striker does NOT trade futures for itself or any of its employees. This policy has been in place from the start in order to guarantee that our entire focus remains on the interests of our clientele. Striker believes that when brokers are allowed to trade for themselves (or have in-house trading practices) there is a strong potential for conflict of interest, as the broker may place more importance on his own trading activities (or that of his firm's) than on those of his clients. Finally, Striker has no financial ties to system developers, so there no bias or pressure on how we report the actual trading results posted in our client section. This section is designed specifically for Striker's clients, so they may audit their results on a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual basis.
