The traders call – may I never be facing north when the markets are headed south.
Z-alpha Trading System proudly administers an exceptional investment product, the Z-alpha Signal, which addresses and controls the two primary components that formulate risk. Since dependable trading signals are our primary differentiator, it makes perfect sense to ask the question as to why we share this investment edge. From our viewpoint, the private subscription service reciprocates the invaluable experience of continual engagement, which unquestionably broadens our horizons.
Being of the old school, we aim to hold ourselves to an exceptionally relevant standard of excellence, facilitating outcomes that professional investors and hedgers aspire to achieve without the astronomical development costs. We recognize that conventional published technical analysis has its anchored following, but logical reasoning would conclude, if everyone is looking at the same analysis, it yields no competitive edges. The prototype Z-alpha Signal was used for day trading open outcry S&P 500® pit futures (formidable foe indeed) but since recalibrated to support other investment disciplines, including bona fide hedged equity strategies.
Z-alpha Signals are unrivaled in quality and design, requiring eight years to build the algorithm with a stepwise approach. We did not take one specific hypothesis to improve upon, we took everything (fibs, pivots, vortex, waves, oscillators, bands, channels, fundamentals, volume, momentum, 67 different theories to be exact) and discarded what didn’t work under real market conditions and cycles. By and large, what has kept the Z-alpha Signal sustainable over the years has been the regularly adapting subcomponents that synchronize with the ever-changing markets to help alleviate all the playing catch-up inaccuracies that occur with all methodologies.
Z-alpha Signals that indicated a (hedged equity) stance have safeguarded 3,431 S&P 500® points commonly forfeited to market volatility. The exhibited data table accentuates the protected S&P 500® points and the supplemental percentages. There is no guarantee that past performance will be indicative of future results.

The schematic representation is a visual portrayal of the system algorithms and is not an attribute of the private subscription. Buy (equity hedge) signals are issued when the Z-alpha Signal rondure moves past and closes below the control status rondure. Contrariwise, Sell (equity hedge) signals are issued when the Z-alpha Signal rondure moves past and closes above the control status rondure. The dynamic control status algorithms are optimized to stay fixed continually on the x-axis. Z-alpha Trading System’s one (and only) discretionary input are the scaling in/out sequence price levels cultivated over decades of complex order flow recognition.

Previously generated (Z-alpha Signals 1990–2020) are archived for review upon request.
Z-alpha Signals are published 252 times per year and of those, there are approximately (14) actionable signals that require investor response. Ninety-five percent of the time there is nothing to do, which is why we do not participate in free trials, because there may not be a control status change during the stated trial period. The private subscription service is priced at $425 per month, billed on a recurring monthly schedule, with no contract. From an institutional metrics perspective, as can be seen, the private subscription service is a mere fraction of the cost of hiring an entry-level quantitative research analyst. Invariably, successful long-term investing requires sitting on your hands most of the time, and the Z-alpha Signal algorithms were smoothed for this exact purpose to blend with most investment processes.
Sentiments curbed. By way of explanation, for us to publish dialogue that contains insertions as “we believe,” “in our opinion,” and others of similitude would be very contradictory since our systematic approach removes all behavioral bias from the investment process. By itself, our opinion does not matter, and on account of this inconsequential as the market is the net output of the collective actions carried out by millions of market participants, each of whom can have a different opinion.
This service is no-frills, providing only the sui generis Z-alpha Signal, trade management scaling sequences, market exposure risk assignments, continuous asset accumulation thresholds, special situation notices, our bona fide hedged equity Q&A sessions, and change in status entry price levels in real-time. In practical terms, the service provides core features from a complete trading system that adapts to the ever-changing markets without the vast development and maintenance costs.
Z-alpha Trading System is perpetually dedicated to stewarding investments and maintains an unyielding conviction that all (actual or simulated) financial published performance returns are hypothetical by default. First and foremost, it is practically impossible for two different accounts (yours and ours) to have the exact trade confirmations void of slippage during the order entry process. Secondarily, even a portfolio grouping or trading system whose constituents each have actual track records must still be considered hypothetical, as the constituents may not have traded simultaneously. Z-alpha Trading System’s private subscription will administer a real-time actual change in status signal confirmation trade during actionable response trading days that we consider hypothetical because of the aforementioned.
