System Developer
Program(s) Developed: Alpha Blend
Interview Date: May, 2015
Interviewed by John F. Gallwas, Founder of Striker Securities, Inc.
Mr. Don Wolf (Wolf Systems) is a professional trader who has computerized his personal trading systems he can also lease his proprietary trading systems to other traders. He has years of experience working with a Chicago-based Futures Commission Merchant (FMC) and learned about Striker close of 2014. In this month we sat down again with Mr. Wolf to examine the success of Alpha Blend live at Striker since October 2014 and currently up +44.93% a/o May 8th, 2015 (all results are actual and include commission, fees, and monthly subscription).
John F. Gallwas: Thanks for letting us interview you again Don and we are impressed with your consitency in trading. Tell us again about yourself will you?

Don Wolf: I have spent the last 30 years successfully trading and developing systems. I started trading Silver and Gold while in school and was so successful I decided to bypass University. I concentrated on creating automated trading systems using a math and algorithmic base. I soon partnered with family to profitably trade several systems before moving out on my own. It is only recently that I have decided to offer systems for others participation. Trading is my life's work and I take great pride in my systems.

John F. Gallwas: Alpha Blend has done very well the last 6 months and has been a top performer with controlled draw downs so can you elaborate on how and why it's done so well?

Don Wolf: Yes Alpha Blend as of today, May 6th 2015 is up +44.93% since October 14, 2014 while the max month to month drawdown was 16.45%. Since Alpha Blend is a day trading system designed to capture short term trends it eliminates overnight risk events. As well, a trade filter eliminates trading where volatility from previous sessions is too high for the system parameters. The use of vigorous stops, instrument/sector diversity and the ability to go long and short helps to control risk too.

John F. Gallwas: Don, can you elaborate on how Alpha Blend has profited and what markets have done well lately?

Don Wolf: Since Alpha Blend is diversified across numerous sectors and instruments, it can take advantage of numerous trending markets and not forced to focus on a narrow target especially when they are not trending. For instance, at the end of January the system caught several trades in the energies that were highly profitable. In April the system captured profitable trades in Gold, Silver and Coffee. Alpha Blend with its diversification has the ability to ignore non trending markets while moving on to trending ones as opposed to having a narrow focus.

John F. Gallwas: Do you have any other new systems in the works?

Don Wolf: Yes I just launched a counter trend system that looks extremely promising and should compliment Alpha Blend very well. Stay tuned this will soon be tracked as well!

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.

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.
