Trading bot subscription built to help traders generate consistent profits in the futures market.

We built a trading bot based on empirical evidence of exploitable edge in the Opening Range Breakout (ORB) strategies. The trading bot's primary objective is to capture daily profits by capitalizing on the recurring intraday volatility in the Nasdaq futures. See the trading bot prospectus.

Can this bot trade other markets besides futures?

This bot is designed to trade only the Nasdaq futures (MNQ,NQ).

What is the expected return for this strategy?

The returns scale with market volatility (higher volatility=higher returns). On average, subscribers can expect a monthly return of 3-5% (40-60% annually).

How does the trading bot manage risk?

This bot uses both price and time based stops to manage risk. 

Will my performance using the trading bot match the advertised track record?

The results for each subscriber will depend on several factors such as execution latency, slippage, and broker commissions and margin requirements.

Which broker should I use to run the trading bot?

Any broker that offers CME index futures products with the MetaTrader 5 trading platform. However, we recommend subscribers to use AMP Futures for their low commissions and margin requirements (it is the same broker we use to run the algo live).

What is the minimum starting capital required to trade with the bot?

The minimum account size to use the trading bot is $5,000

How much does the trading bot subscription cost?

Monthly plan: $50 per contract

Annual plan: $35 per contract - $420/year (save 30% with annual plan)

Subscription plan is tailored to each subscriber based on our recommended trading size per their trading capital.

Why does the subscription fee scales with the starting contract size?

This fee structure ensures that pay commensurates with performance. Subscribers can start with smaller trading size with lesser fee to test and evaluate the trading bot.  Then they can scale with more contracts as they gain confidence in the trading bot's performance.

Can subscriber choose to trade with different contract size?

Subscriber can choose to trade at a lower contract size than what is recommended. However, we advise that they do not trade higher than the recommended size.

How can subscribers scale up on the position size?

Subscriber will receive a notification to upgrade the trading size once their account reaches the minimum capital required to trade additional contracts.

Will ORB Trades work on other trading platforms besides MetaTrader 5?

We are currently working on to expand the trading bot's compatibility with other trading platforms.

Futures trading and algorithmic trading involve a substantial risk of loss and is not appropriate for everyone. Before deciding to trade or invest you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and ability to tolerate risk. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment. Only risk capital should be used.

Financial markets are inherently volatile, and past performance does not guarantee future profits or losses. Trading carries substantial risks, and traders should carefully consider their risk tolerance, financial situation, and goals before implementing any trading strategy, especially one based on hypothetical results. The use of leverage can amplify both gains and losses. It is advisable to consult with a qualified financial advisor or seek professional guidance before engaging in any trading activities, including using the ORB Trades trading bot. No warranty or guarantee is provided, and continuous monitoring and adjustment are necessary in response to changing market conditions.
