General questions

To use TRADEofficer register here and download the appropriate app either from the Google or Apple store.

Here we go. You will receive trading signals for ten days and see all trades made so far in the timeline.

For the web application: Under Profile Settings you can choose whether you want to receive short, long and medium-term trading signals. You can also specify your investment behaviour. User settings you can specify whether you also want to receive signals by e-mail.

You only ever receive signals that correspond to your investment horizon and profile. You always see all signals on the timeline.

After ten days you can flexibly decide whether you want to receive further signal updates for 30, 60 or 90 days. You can do this in the Web application under User Settings in the top right-hand corner of the update management.

If you are on holiday or for other reasons do not want to deal with the financial markets, simply do not book a service for this time. However, you should make sure that you have no trades open.

When you join and extend the service is always up to you.

TRADEofficer costs € 29.99 for 30 days, € 54.99 for 60 days and € 79.99 for 90 days, depending on the usage space. Alternatively, you can also decide on 365 days and pay 299 €.

The service always runs out automatically.

After initial registration you can test TRADEofficer for ten days and receive signals. Only then do you decide whether you want to receive signals for another 30, 60 or 90 days. You can always book the service flexibly, whenever you need it. This means that if you are on holiday for a longer period of time or deliberately take a six-month break from the financial markets, you simply do not book signals for this period.

You log in on the web interface and click on "Update management" under user settings in the top right corner.

Here you can see your status. "No updates" means that you are currently receiving no signals. Depending on how you want it, you can choose between 30 days for 29,99 €, or 60 days for 54,99 € or 90 days for 79,99 €. Payment is made via the payment method stored in the respective App Store.

If you would like to choose for 365 days, please send us an e-mail.

The service always runs out automatically.

 

You can test TRADEofficer for 10 days. During this time you will get access to both the app and the web access and you will receive signals and messages.

After the ten days you do not need to do anything else. The service expires automatically.

Absolutely. This is exactly what TRADEofficer is made for. All trading signals, depot updates and the like are announced in good time, i.e. with a 48-hour course.

The trading signals themselves are played out in such a way that you always have sufficient time to execute the order with your broker or bank.

Yes, the TRADEofficer is especially designed for professionals. The TRADEofficer keeps an eye on the markets all day long so that they do not have to sit in front of the screen all the time and can concentrate on their work.

One thing distinguishes the experienced trader: humility. The intelligent investor knows how vulnerable his own systems are, how easy it is to be trapped in his own "bias". This is exactly what TRADEofficer offers the right approach.

In the sense of a personal coach, signals and hints are repeatedly given about market opportunities that one might not have taken advantage of oneself. By being able to hear/ liken signals and see in the performance how they develop in comparison to the overall performance, you have a friendly correction of your behaviour (psychologists call it nudging) and can thus improve your own actions.

All signals, market announcements, adjustments, etc. you receive both in the app via push notification. You can also specify in the signal center if you are also notified by e-mail. You can also specify whether you would like to receive a summary at the end of each trading week in PDF format.

You will always find all notifications on the timeline and via web access. The latter is particularly suitable for viewing individual trading signals in detail.

You can also receive new messages directly on your mobile phone.
We deliberately chose an app because messages are read faster there than in conventional e-mails, which are often lost in spam or the flood of mail.
Especially for professionals or all those who do not want to watch the screen all the time, the app is ideal. But we leave that to you.

If you decide to use only "long signals" in your investor profile, this means that you will only receive push messages (small message directly on the display) on your mobile phone for these signals.

In the Timeline, however, you will see all signals - including the short signals, so that everyone at least has the opportunity to capture and consider them for themselves. We even recommend this, because for Behavioral Finance reasons you often tend to have an investment horizon, but a broader diversification would make sense.

You can change the push notification at any time in your investor profile under "Office".

What do you react faster to? SMS or e-mail? It's not just you. Studies show that over 90% of SMS are opened and read within 3 minutes. E-mails, on the other hand, are only opened 22% and it takes hours on average to read them.

The impetus for TRADEofficer, however, was the uncomfortable feeling of sitting in a meeting while good trading opportunities might arise. An app is ideal for this. You have the good feeling not to miss anything, but you also don't have to spend hours in front of the computer watching the markets, but you can take your time after the conference or the important appointment to analyze the signal and enter it at the broker of your choice.

TRADEofficer does not supplement classic chart software programs, but rather provides you with trading impulses. You improve your trading because you are confronted with signals that are not part of your own market scan.

Using web access as a supplement, you can also view everything at your leisure.

TRADEofficer, in contrast to traditional offers of stock exchange letters, places great emphasis on diversification. You receive not only one strategy, but signals from three discretionary strategies and seven (semi-)automated trading systems.
In addition, we send trading signals in a time window that gives you sufficient time (at least one or more days) to place the order.

The third distinguishing feature is that we support technical analysis and rely entirely on scientific approaches.

TRADEofficer has a quantitative approach based on proven mathematical, statistical methods, supplemented with objective technical (indicator) analysis and extended by fundamental aspects.

Ten mutually complementary strategies (mechanical, computerized and discretionary strategies) are combined into a trading system that adapts to the respective global stock market situation by means of a proprietary algorithm. The individual strategies within the trading system are weighted monthly and can thus react independently and adaptively to bull, bear and sideways markets.

As a result, the entire system correlates much less with the major indices such as the S&P500 and DAX.

If you are using a new mobile phone, connect your new device to your personal TRADEofficer ID (the e-mail address you use to log in).

To do this, download the app from the appropriate store to your mobile phone. After starting it, switch to the tab "Account" and connect to your TRADEofficer-ID. The settings saved under your TRADEofficer-ID as well as purchased updates will then be available on your new device.

At the first announcement of a signal, concrete limit orders or combination orders (if done order) can already be set.

This means that one could set a buy limit in the market with the broker.

If the share then rises in the following days and reaches the price, the broker executes the buy order. Afterwards he sets the chain order or combination order (named differently depending on the broker) and then executes the stop and the price target that was previously considered and also placed in the market.

So, if you wanted to pursue this idea, you could have all the necessary orders in the market.

It is advisable to check for safety's sake whether the broker has executed everything correctly and whether the stop and the price target are also in the market.

If you do not have a broker who knows these order types or you always want to enter the orders into the market, you should at least work with alarm functions, e.g. via SMS or e-mail notification from the broker or from your own chart software, in order to implement a signal promptly.

An internal and automatic algorithm determines the weighting of the individual trades. It controls the currently ten different trading strategies (seven computerized, fully automated trading systems and three discretionary trading systems).

In the financial literature, an X% value of the portfolio is often used as a risk measure for a single trade.

In our sample portfolio, depending on whether it is a trade from the short, medium or long-term investment profile, the basic size is between 0.25% and 5% of the current portfolio balance as risk capital in a single trade.

With the filter icon in the upper right corner you have the possibility to search for trading signals and values. These are then displayed.

Within a signal, clicking on the small heart symbol in the top line will display a list of all notifications sent for this value.

TRADEofficer does not give an exact number or percentage of the individual trades. This decision is left to the investor.
TRADEofficer deliberately does not offer copy trading, as this does not lead to long-term improved trading and does not make you dependent.
As an investor you receive trading ideas which you can implement with your own portfolio size and your own risk and money management.
It is very important here that you as an investor decide for yourself which trading signal you want to implement and that you first analyse the stock market signals yourself. Only this leads to independent, improved trading.

Another addition: The position distribution in the sample securities account, which you can see under Performance, is very conservative. 
The sample portfolio shows the return that would be feasible at very low risk. So For example, investors who follow the risk size of approx. 1 % of the portfolio follow, achieve significantly higher returns than we achieve in our sample portfolio.
But this is also associated with much higher risks.

QUESTIONS ON TRADING AND INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

After registration, the investor determines his investor behavior and can decide whether he wants to receive short-term, medium-term or long-term signals. They can also decide whether they want to trade only "long" or "long and short" signals. Note: Day trading signals and recommendations are not provided on a minute or hourly basis. The investor profile can be changed again at any time. Anyone who may have taken a premature decision to trade medium-term, or who has had to completely rule out short-term trading in the 5 to 14-day range due to their professional activity, can adjust their profile so that they also receive these signals and thus expand their trading spectrum. The combination of human know-how with the capabilities of autonomous trading programs thus results in a signal diversity and reduction of risks.

We recommend European and American stocks and exclude stocks that are actively involved in the defence sector. Our recommendations are medium to long-term and range from a holding period of at least a few days to several months and years.

We also offer recommendations for funds, future and options.

Basically, our trading systems and our traders always scan and analyze an underlying asset in the local currency.

For US stocks, this is the USD. Only on the home stock exchange one has the appropriate volume, sufficient liquidity and fair spreads. This means that US securities are always considered on the US stock exchange and should also be traded there.

Especially for the evening trader the US stock exchange is usually very well suited, because the US stock exchanges open at 15:30 o'clock of our time, so that e.g. someone who comes home at 17:30 or 18:30 or even at 20:00 o'clock can trade the value at the original stock exchange or can still manage his positions.

As a rule, the US brokers or international large brokers or brokerage departments of the banks, which allow the value at the stock exchange of origin in this case USA to trade significantly cheaper than German houses.

This is another advantage that speaks in favour of trading the original value. There are some brokers who execute a 10,000 USD position for around 2 USD per half turn. This means that for buying and selling there is only a total of around 4 USD for a trading volume of 10,000 USD.

In the result this means that we cannot inform about US values and then give suggestions for trading ideas in Euro, because this would distort the analysis, too high costs for the person who might implement the idea means and there would be no or a distorted volume and trading times if one would analyse and trade US values in Euro.

They don't recognize it. This is exactly one of the distinguishing features of TRADEofficer from other services and has financial psychological reasons.
A certain emotionality often resonates in relation to strategies. Many services put certain persons in the foreground, which one follows. But it is about improving one's own actions and diversifying accordingly in order to achieve good returns.
They remain and act more objectively. One point of success is that we combine ten strategies and can thus also generate these returns - at low risk.
Which many of our users do. They have their own trading strategies and receive suggestions from TRADEofficer that you would not have considered yourself. Perhaps you are also aware of the fact that you sometimes hold on to a value for too long? At least that is what many experienced financial market participants tell us. This is where TRADEofficer comes in with the good advice that now would be a good selling point, while they themselves still hope that it will work out.
"Do you want to be right or do you want to make money?" it was once well put.
It is important that you distinguish between announcement to the signal and actual signal.
For example, in the first weeks of January 2018 we have 14 announcements so far. But this does not mean that all ten announcements will actually reach their signals. In fact, only 3 (as of 18.01.2018) have been implemented so far. And the signals again come from three investment horizons. This means that it is possible that some announcements do not reach their signal and generate the abort signal, which is always already communicated with the announcement. On average, the announced signals are converted by about 30-50 %. Also for this you will always receive a notification - i.e. you have enough time to form your own opinion (which is very important to us) and enter the value with a stop order at your broker/bank.
In the information documents you can read about this in "History of a trade", how many references there are to a trade including announcement, triggering, following, closing of the trade.
What TRADEofficer does is give you orientation in the infinite variety of signals. "Navigator for the financial markets" we call it. In the sense of a personal coach you get the good advice how to trade better and more successful.
The time lead is very important to us. Because many services send ad-hoc messages to which especially working people cannot react. We always provide the signals with sufficient time for self-analysis and preparation, because it should be a matter of considered action.
You will achieve our currently issued returns if you convert all signals. Therefore, we suggest an account size of at least 25,000 to better 50,000 EUR (ideally 100,000 EUR), because this allows you to easily convert all signals with the right size
You always see all signals on the timeline. In each signal, you will see a note indicating whether it is a short, medium or long-term signal.
This is done consciously, because here too people have often shot at something, but this is contrary to diversification and counterproductive.
Your investment profile only affects the signals you receive via push. Especially in the short-term range (where we calculate it on a daily rather than an hourly basis), it is advisable to receive the signals as push messages.
If you don't want any push notifications at all - then you don't have to commit to any profile.
The push notification helps to combine action with everyday work. You don't have to spend the whole day in front of your PC watching the prices and waiting for a good signal (which often leads to unfavourable price reactions), but know that you will be notified when something happens and can then watch it at your leisure.
You will receive the e-mail summary (if you wish) every Friday after the close of trading.
We recommend to convert all signals (with the note above that you have to differentiate between announcement and signal), because you can't achieve identical performance when using announcement.
In the app, under Performance you will always see the entire signal and if you click on individual signals (i.e. on the heart) you will see your own. So you can always compare real time. This is once again a good way of looking honestly at your own trading decisions from a financial psychological and didactic perspective.
Of course, the individual difference in performance includes the size of the position.
Our signals are traded on a 100,000 EUR sample account. And with a risk size of 0.125 % to max. 2 % in the short and medium-term investment horizon and up to 10 % risk size in the long-term investment horizon for ETFs (whereby there is no stop at ins for ETFs, as these positions are held for years to decades and we do not want to be thrown out by a "black swan" (flash crash).
