I released IndexTrader in April 2001 when it was originally called SpiTrader.

In April 2003 I renamed it IndexTrader.

IndexTrader continues to perform well since it's public release profiting during both bull and bear markets.

IndexTrader is a short term 100% mechanical index trading model that can be traded across global index futures. Its methodology is surprisingly simple making it robust.  Regardless of whether you're trading the SPI, NIKKEI, TAIWAN, HANG SENG, DAX, FTSE or E-MINI S&P500 futures contracts with IndexTrader you will be following the same simple rules. IndexTrader can be traded with a AUD20,000 account commencing with two markets. Traders can add additional markets to trade as their accounts build. Please refer to my real time results as I have personally done this. Please review the performance page to see whether IndexTrader may have helped your index trading and don't forget to request a copy of my Real Time Results!

IndexTrader come with 3 months of FREE support. Your FREE support will include an on going education into the trading methodologies and access to my live orders (before the market opens) as I personally trade the model. You'll be able to watch me trade live 24/7 for 3 months. I'm not aware of any other system vendor or trading educator in the world today that would allow you to watch them trade live 24/7 for 90 days. To see their complete orders, fills received and trade results. None! But when you purchase IndexTrader you will. You'll be right there with me looking over my shoulder as I trade day in and day out. Being able to in effect "sit" beside a professional trader for 90 days alone is worth the price of this model.

IndexTrader continues to perform well since it's public release in April 2001. The robustness of IndexTrader's methodology is demonstrated by its ability to profit across multiple indexes with the same simple rules.

If you don't have a short term 100% mechanical index trading model that can extract profits across multiple index contracts such as the;

  • SPI,

  • NIKKEI 225



  • DAX

  • FTSE100 or

  • E-MINI SP500

then you may like to consider IndexTrader.

IndexTrader will help you introduce more structure and discipline into your trading and help you overcome your natural tendencies of fear, hope and greed.

For the new trader IndexTrader is a quick and easy, step-by-step instruction on how to trade indices. For the more experienced trader  IndexTrader is a way to get back to basics and keep it simple!

However, if you're not looking for the next "magic bullet indicator" and would prefer a non-emotional, systematic approach to trading, and would like to trade world index contracts such as the SPI, NIKKEI, TAIWAN, HANG SENG, DAX, FTSE or E-MINI SP500, then you may like to consider IndexTrader.
