System Description: TurningPoint is a position trading system Trading the ES mini. The system detects waning momentum and takes a position in the opposite direction. The system uses profit targets and stops. It does not use trailing stops. Waning momentum is also used to exit a position. When exiting a position on waning momentum if certain criteria are satisfied the system will take a trade in the opposite direction. It is not unusual for this system to take a position before the market actually turns. Long positions have a smaller profit target due to the choppiness inherent in most up moves. A wider stop on the long position helps with the more choppy nature of up moves. The system is 100% mechanical requiring no subjectivity to trade. On average it trades about 15-20 times per year. With an average time in trades ~10 days, with ~21 days between trades. The system has one addtitional optional capability. In backtesting, the system does not experience a significant number of consecutive losses. The majority of losing trades are followed by a winning trade. TurningPoint takes advantage of this by allowing the user to double up after a losing trade. It does require more margin but backtesting has shown that drawdown is not significantly impacted.

Disclaimer The risk of trading can be substantial and each investor and/or trader must consider whether this is a suitable investment. Past performance, whether actual or indicated by simulated historical tests of strategies, is not necessarily indicative of future results. Striker is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA"), the Managed Funds Association ("MFA"), and the National Introducing Broker Association ("NIBA"). Striker is registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC"), and was formerly registered with the Securities Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Additionally, Striker is a former member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation ("SIPC"). FINRA is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities business in the United States. Please read Striker Disclosure Statement for the additional disclosure.

Futures Trading Disclaimer:
Transactions in securities futures, commodity and index futures and options on futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract, meaning that transactions are heavily "leveraged". A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit: this may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the clearing firm to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit. For accounts that are deemed abandoned or inactive, Striker may charge up to a $35.00 monthly inactivity fee, depending on the clearing firm where the account is held. If the Net Liquidity of an account reaches a Daily Loss Limit of 80%, open positions will attempt to be liquidated. Clients are responsible for monitoring their positions and are financially responsible for any losses generated by open positions in the account. Striker retains its right to liquidate positions in any account, at its sole discretion, with no forewarning.

Forex Trading Disclosure:
Trading cash Foreign Exchange ("FX") contracts carries the same high level of risk as futures trading (Futures Trading Disclaimer). However cash FX, unlike futures FX contracts that are regulated by the Commodity Trading Futures Commission, are not regulated by any governmental agency. In addition, because there is not a central clearing house for cash FX transactions, there is also a counterparty risk for each contact. For additional information please read the National Futures Association ("NFA") August 2003 "Investor Alert" found on the Striker Disclaimer Page.
