The Edge Signals & Indicators

Market Timing Signal

Get The Edge

The Edge is a daily download service that includes predictive signals and indicators for the Australian Dollar, Gold Futures, S&P 500 Futures and Live Cattle Futures. The signals and indicators are produced by market timing models.

Signals are downloaded in CSV format using a Microsoft Windows application provided by AdaptiveTradingSystems.com. The signals that you see in the image were generated by a 'master' trading signal published in November 2011. Still working reasonably well over 5 years later.


Signal Data

Interpreting the Signals

Signals downloaded in the evening apply to the close of the day session on the following trading day. Friday's signals are available on Saturday and apply to the close of the day session on Monday.

Signal interpretation:

  • Out of the market when the signal value equals zero.
  • Long when the signal value is greater than zero.
  • Short when the signal value is less than zero.

The majority of signals correspond to market timing models. Master signals are signals that are computed using an ensemble of signals.


ATS Edge Application

Downloading the Signals

The signals are downloaded daily using the ATS Edge application. They are usually ready by 9:00pm CST. If the data that is required to compute the signals is late or extra data vetting is required then the signals will be late.

Emails are sent out to subscribers of The Edge when the signals are ready for downloading. Subscribers are also notified when there is a significant delay.


DISCLAIMER: Hypothetical or simulated performance results have inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown on this website. Past performance of our trading systems, trading signals and modeling software, whether actual or indicated by simulated historical tests of trading strategies, is not indicative of future results.
