What this report displays:
Calculates minimum total tics of trade setup “opportunity” BEFORE hitting initial -1R Stop-Loss. These are trade setups directly congruent with the PTG Trade Methodology that pass strict Quantitative and Qualitative Standards.
***Many of these trade opportunities exceeded the minimum reported tic count and generated positive alpha, though the report only measures the minimum. We attempt to offer a conservative realistic trade representation.

What this report does NOT display or infer:
This report DOES NOT display or meant to infer that every trade “opportunity” should have been traded, or if traded, traded successfully based upon reported metrics. Also, does NOT display any additional “position alpha” (risk-adjusted profit) above Initial Level (1R) on multiple contracts beyond single 1 lot. Trades were made in a DEMO Account and are therefore hypothetical.
*****VERY IMPORTANT: Tic Count Report reflects trade setup “opportunities” that adhere to strict quantitative and qualitative criteria available to all traders (equally) following the PTG Methodology. Responsibility rests upon each trader’s decision to “take the trade or not take the trade”. Trade setups are generated from a computer algorithm and displayed real-time in PTG Trading Room. All trades presented are NOT TRADED IN A LIVE ACCOUNT and should be considered hypothetical”.
The hypothetical performance results displayed on this website are hypothetical results in that they represent trades made in a demonstration (“demo”) account. Transaction prices were determined by assuming that purchase orders received the ask price and sell orders the bid price of quotes Polaris Trading Group (PTG) receives from the broker at which it maintains the demo account. The hypothetical results do not include any commissions or fees which may be charged by a customer’s broker or relevant futures exchange, but are not charged to a demo account. The results represented are based on a trade size of one contract. The performance of customers electing to trade a different contract size will therefore vary. Trades placed in the demo account are based on Polaris Trading Group (PTG) having access to an unlimited amount of funds. As a result, the demo account is not subject to margin calls and has the ability to withstand large, sustained draw downs which a customer account may not be able to afford. Trades placed in the demo account may not subject to price slippage which may occur when a trade is actually placed in a customer account. All performance results presented only include the results of valid trade setups. Customers may elect not to follow all of the trading signals provided by Polaris Trading Group (PTG) or be able trade the recommended number of contracts due to insufficient funds in an account. Therefore, the results portrayed are not indicative of an account which may have traded all of Polaris’ signals or contracts. Accordingly, should the customer attempt to take every single trade as directed by the system, the performance of customer accounts may still vary significantly from the results portrayed on this website.
NFA Compliance Rule 2-29(c)(1) Disclaimer:
HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
