Q5TrackerST, also known as Q5SideWinder after major changes to its logic in July 2008, is a NASDAQ-100 Timing System that generates Buy and Sell signals, after the market close, for the next market days opening price.  System is always in the market and is suitable for trading QQQ (Long & Short - recommended for account sizes 3K+), QLD & QID (Long & Inverse - account sizes 7K+), or Rydex Funds (recommended) such as RYVYX & RYVNX (Long & Inverse - account sizes 25K+ with Rydex but may be traded with small $100 accounts at brokers such as TD Ameritrade). 

 

SideWinder averages approximately 26 trades per year.  All trades are generated by computer algorithm that analyzes price and time from 1987 to the present using traditional and proprietary technical analysis. 

 

Signals are usually sent out between 9pm and Midnight EST and orders placed before the next market open @ 9:30am EST.  I assume a commission price of $9.99 per trade and, though I use market orders on the open, I try to avoid the use of margin by leaving uninvested cash in the account.


This is a RISKY / VOLATILE investment approach and it is recommended that you consult a financial professional before making any investment decisions based on these signals and that even then you risk no more than 20% of your investment capital on the use of these signals.
 

I trade this system in my TD Ameritrade account using Rydex Nasdaq 100 2x funds.

DISCLAIMER: PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS.  QLD & QID ETFS SEEK 200% THE PERFORMANCE OF THE NASDAQ-100 INDEX BY USING LEVERAGE.  PLEASE READ THE PROSPECTUS FOR BOTH QLD & QID BEFORE INVESTING.  THIS IS AN AGGRESSIVE STRATEGY THAT SHOULD BE EXPECTED TO HAVE VERY VOLATILE MOVES IN EQUITY AND EXTREME RISK.
