I agree about the track record thing. I plan to use the "Collective2" to establish a public track record of the system. That takes time though. Plus, thee Collective has it's own peculiarities to the order entry and fills that need to be accounted for. I am paper trading it as a test system right now. I think I figured the timing out though, as my last 5 trades are all small winners.
The thing that is going to really put me under pressure, is that the Collective2 test page will be starting out with only $5000.00. Back in 1995, when Corn margins were only $450.00 for full contracts, this would have been easy. Today though, it's a different ball game.
