Directional Alpha

The Directional Alpha Collection Service (DAC) identifies high probability, long and short directional trades using a proprietary 4 level scanner comprising technical, fundamental and factor-based quantitative analysis. The objective of this strategy is to extract maximum gain from a directional move in a short period of time. Each trade is either bullish or bearish, is an in-the-money (ITM) long call or put, and is typically open for 4 to 21 days. The bullish trades are on fundamentally strong companies in bullish technical setups, and the bearish trades are on fundamentally weak companies in bearish technical setups. This service is offered as both autotrade and self-managed. Four percent of the capital is allocated to each trade. The DAC service finished 2017 UP +28% including commissions.
