The Striker Secret: How to prepare for a correction in stocks
Putting capital to work takes discipline - a willingness to stick with winning trades and cut losses. How to treat those winnings remains a thornier question - where should one invest gains from stock markets and other investments?

Conventional wisdom suggests diversifying into cash, but the dollar remains in a solid downtrend - given a weak labor market and the American economy's addiction to higher stock prices, the market seems to expect further Fed accommodation in one form or another.

Still, it's far from clear that all this liquidity will remain in equities, or that the leverage added by the big players will maintain its current vector and won't unwind due to some exogenous event or shock. Consider the current instability in the Middle East, for example, and its potential effect on global energy markets.

In preparing to take advantage of such risks, a number of investors have discovered the Striker Secret: trade systems designed to capitalize on global commodity trends as well as market volatility.

While your average buy-and-hold stock investor remains at the mercy of market corrections, system traders can take advantage of down moves by quickly shorting the market, or riding a bull move in markets such as oil or natural gas.

Striker provides actual trading performance results for these systems, a number of which have performed solidly. And Striker provides the whole picture - actual results with commissions and all fees included.

As for stocks, one thing remains certain: markets can be stubborn things. They tend to outfox all who dare to predict their limits. While past performance is no guarantee of future returns, careful investors are well aware of this perverse dynamic - ignoring the chatter, they stick with trend momentum while diversifying their capital based on objective trading data. Striker can provide such data, as well as professional system trading for investors seeking an edge in uncertain times.

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.

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.
