    Earik Beann - Mechanical Trading System




    Harness the Power of Mechanical Trading Systems
    ...and supercharge your trading by automating it!

    Sales Page:

    Mechanical trading systems are one of the greatest developments in the history of trading. Turn them on, connect them to your broker, and they will trade for you. However, developing a good mechanical system is not always so easy, especially if you aren't aware of the many pitfalls involved. Although Earik is best known for some of his discretionary approaches, he got his start building automated trading systems long before Wave59 even existed. From his days trading Treasury Bonds systems at the CBOT, through his work setting up a private fund to trade the ES, he has over twenty years of testing, tweaking, and innovating mechanical systems to trade financial markets.

    This course is all about mechanical trading systems. How to evaluate them, how to build them, and how to trade them. But in typical Wave59 fashion, we're going to go about doing that a little differently. Unlike every other systems book in existence, you'll learn by taking apart actual, working systems that Earik has used in live markets throughout the years. These are not dumbed-down, for-example-only systems, but real life, actual trading methods that you can take today and implement in your own trading. Everything is completely revealed, including QScript source code, so if you want to just skip the book and trade the systems, go for it. You can find the scripts in the appendix.

    This is the biggest book we've ever published and it is crammed full of system ideas and techniques, as well as fully working systems. A brief summary of the table of contents is shown below.

    Chapter 1: Introduction

    Discusses the pros and cons of system trading when compared to discretionary trading. Systems have some distinct advantages. Specifically, they avoid a lot of issues of stress and psychology that plague discretionary traders, they can implement techniques too complicated for humans to master, and they can easily be leveraged up to turn small accounts into incredibly massive ones. Best of all, they can do all of that without needing human interaction, which makes them ideal for people who have better things to do during the day than stare at price charts.

    Chapter 2: The System Report Explained


    Good and bad trading systems both have very distinct ways of telling you whether or not they will continue to work when moving forward into the future. After working through this chapter, you will understand the basics of how to go about evaluating a system, and will gain experience by using these methods as we take apart and discuss good (and bad!) systems working forward through the book.

    Chapter 3: William Tell Bonds


    This system was developed all the way back in 1997, and was actively used not only in Earik's personal accounts, but also in the accounts of his partners and clients when he worked at the Board of Trade. In the years when it was actively traded, this system crushed the Bond market with accuracy approaching 90%. Although it is now an old system, and Bond futures have changed significantly in the last 16 years, the core ideas behind this method continue to be valid, and if accuracy is your cup of tea, you won't find anything that can hold a candle to this.

    To give you a taste, here's the system report from just one of the nineteen individual patterns that go into this method:




    Notice the accuracy number. Over 91% of the trades were winners, with the worst losing streak ever being a set of two losses in a row. This system report has been run from 1990 through 2013, and this pattern continues to crank away as it has been for the last 16 years running on live data.


    All systems can be made to be extremely accurate, and after reading through the William Tell chapter, you'll know exactly how to build 70%, 80%, and even 90% accurate systems. The methods that result in this level of accuracy are universal, so if you already have a system you like, odds are you can transform it into a hyper-accurate system as well, simply by adding a few changes to the way you enter and exit your trades.

    Chapter 4: The Fallacy of Optimization


    In this chapter, we'll take a look at parameter migration, where an optimized parameter set works one year, but then fails the next. This phenomena of markets is the main reason why so many systems found for sale in the classified ads in the back of trading magazines fail to ever earn a dollar of profits when traded live. If you've ever purchased one of those methods, you know what I'm talking about!

    Not only will we cover what the issues are that cause parameter migration, but we'll also discuss the solution. To prove that our solution works, we'll actually build a system that makes simple moving average crossovers profitable! Yes, moving average crossovers can be made to make money when traded in out-of-sample data, but only if you can solve the issue of parameter migration. Understanding this one core concept will save you from countless hours of unprofitable development work, and will allow you to build extremely robust systems that will not fall apart as they move forward into unseen data.

    Chapter 5: Mean Reversion Systems


    Mean reversion systems are a class of systems that, when implemented properly, are extremely robust and profitable. Once you understand the core concept, they are also very easy to design. Check out this one from the book, which can be run with only two lines of programming:



    Sure, it's a little wild, but it also made almost $750,000 trading one contract of the SP! Think of this as the raw edge, which can be taken and developed further. That gets done in later chapters, and if you are looking for some ideas to base your own systems on, this is a great place to start. The system shown in the chart above is actually over 12 years old, and works just as well today as the day it was first built. These techniques don't lose their effectiveness over time, which is why we like them.

    Chapter 6: Stop Losses, Targets, and Other Ways to Lose Money


    This chapter busts some myths. One of the absolute worst things you can do to a mechanical system is to add dollar-based stops and targets to it. But for whatever reason, this mistake is made every single day by novice system developers and traders. There are better ways to protect your account against losses, and better techniques to use in your own trading. This also holds true for the discretionary traders. You may not realize it, but the very tools you are using to protect yourself against losses may in fact also be the reason why your trading isn't generating any profits. Learn the truth about stops and targets, and start using the techniques that actually help you generate profits rather than losses.

    Chapter 7: Lunar System


    Many in the Wave59 community may have some familiarity with Earik's Lunar System, first presented at the 2011 PowerUser Conference. This chapter reviews Spherical Astrology, a new way to define planetary aspects, and discusses the functions within Wave59 that allow this technology to be implemented in trading systems. Unlike typical astro, we can backtest Spherical Astrology, and prove that it actually does provide a timing edge. What kind of edge? Check out the chart below:



    If you've ever thought that the Moon and Sun might have some impact on markets, that equity curve proves that you were correct. This chapter walks through building an astro system from the ground up, all the way from the theoretical ideas behind Spherical Astrology, through implementing and fine tuning the approach on the Dow.

    For those already familiar with this system (or already trading a version of it), you'll be interested in some of the work done on Venus, which provides a starting point for developing something even more powerful than the core Lunar system.

    Chapter 8: Machine Learning


    This chapter discusses the machine learning algorithms available in Wave59, both in the current PRO2 platform, as well as the upcoming PRO3 platform. In addition to an overview of the technologies, we will also evaluate actual systems built using both Hives and the new Genetic Algorithm toolkit.

    After Earik released the Unified Theory of Markets over a year ago, he went into a period of very intense development work which resulted in the creation of an artificial research assistant. Give your assistant various systems and system ideas, and using the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, you can make extremely effective leaps in the creation of mechanical trading systems. How effective are these leaps? Check out the chart below, which details an ES trading system developed using this new technology:



    This approach made almost $200k trading one contract of the ES since 2000. It wins over 60% of its trades and has never had a losing year. What does it use? UltraSmooth Momentum, one of the core technical indicators in Wave59. I'm sure many people are familiar with this indicator, but I doubt many would have been able to use it as skillfully as our machine learning program did. No need to perfect trying to read this tool anymore, just let this system take it and run.

    This chapter presents four systems based on machine learning algorithms, two developed with Hive Technology, and two developed with the new tools available in PRO3. All four of these systems can be used in the most current editions of Wave59.

    Chapter 9: Random Numbers



    Some exit approaches, like most dollar-based stops, will take a good system and turn it into a consistent loser. Others can take a mediocre system and turn it into a rock star. This chapter discusses one of the most most amazing techniques in the course, an exit approach so powerful that it actually works when using completely random entry signals.

    Check out the equity curve below:



    This graph comes right out of the book, and shows what would have happened to a theoretical account had it bought and sold every single bar on the ES and implemented this exit system in every one of those trades. In other words, this is the result of taking every single possible trade available in the ES since 2000 using this exit approach. Since we are tracking both buying and selling every bar, trend and timing cancel each other out, and all we are left with is the result of how we manage those trades.

    The practical result of doing this test is that we now have an exit method that can actually generate profits all on its own, regardless of the entry signal used to enter the trade. Because of that, you can make money trading by FLIPPING A COIN for your entries. Seriously. Combine this with an entry signal that actually has a timing edge, and you'll have a system that significantly outperforms almost every other method you've ever seen.

    Chapter 10: Merged Systems


    This chapter discusses a technique to create an adaptive approach based on using many systems together. By allowing the strength of one system to counteract the weakness of another, two systems working together can generate more profits with less risk than each was able to accomplish on its own. Done properly, this approach makes the overall result extremely drawdown resistant, and robust enough to be almost immune from issues of parameter migration, curve-fitting, and a host of other problems that plague lesser systems.



    By pulling together everything done in previous chapters, we are able to arrive at a base system that has an incredibly smooth equity curve as shown above. This system generates $13k per ES contract per year, on average, with over 60% accuracy, very low drawdown and very high reliability. If you do nothing else but read this chapter and implement this system, you'll have an awesome way to trade the ES that will give you the ability to generate some amazing annual percentage gains that rival the best hedge funds in the world.

    Chapter 11: Position Sizing



    In order to complete a trade, we must know three things: when to enter, when to exit, and how much to trade. The majority of retail traders focus their energy on the least important of these three elements, the entry. Our random exit proved we can make money without even needing an entry signal, and this chapter shows how to take a profitable system and leverage it up into a fortune. There are various position sizing approaches floating around the industry, and in this chapter Earik shares the one he uses himself, which is a modified formula that results in extremely fast account growth while keeping drawdowns reasonable.



    This equity curve is from the exact same merged system as shown before, with one exception - we have implemented position sizing. Give the first system one contract and 13 years, and it generated almost $200 thousand in profits. Give the second system one contract and 13 years, and it cranked out $200 million. Same signals, same amount of effort, same starting account size. If you are serious about trading, then you must implement position sizing appropriately.

    Chapter 12: Options


    This chapter follows in the steps of the last, detailing a way to use options rather than outright stock purchases in order to gain massive leverage on a stock-based trading system. Futures trading can be done with huge leverage, but the initial required account size in order to trade futures is oftentimes quite large, especially for new traders. On the other hand, options contracts can be bought for only a couple hundred dollars, and provide a way to achieve similar leverage with only a fraction of the required account size.

    Unfortunately, there are many ways to lose money trading, and even more if you are trading options. If you have a good stock system, and simply purchase as many options as you can for a fixed percentage of your account, you will see your account crumble, even though your system itself remains theoretically profitable. This chapter presents a position sizing formula for options trading that will be extremely useful when trading small accounts, based on a technique developed here at Wave59. Simply input your account size, various options pricing numbers, and your trading signal, and it will spit out exactly how many options contracts to purchase at what strike price in order to maximize your results.



    The chart above shows the results of implementing this approach over the last two years. The blue line is a stock trading system (that is currently being traded live on the SPY), and shows the result of what would have happened using maximum margin trading a $20k initial account. You can see that doing this earned 150% in two years time, a great result. The red line shows what would have happened had we traded this approach using our options formula instead. Not only did we earn more than twice as much, we did so with less risk. Harnessing volatility is key, and when done right, options provide more leverage than any other investment vehicle on the planet. This chapter details the formula, and steps through how to implement it in your own trading.

    Appendix: The Systems


    Last, but not least, we have the appendix: almost 30 pages of Wave59 QScript source code, which will allow you to implement every system discussed in the book on your own. There are no secret black-box methods here. The logic to everything is completely revealed, and pre-programmed for you. Just enter the scripts into Wave59, apply them to a chart, and you'll have a full working version of whatever system you are interested in. An auto-trading script is also provided, which will allow you to set Wave59 up to trade hands-free on its own, without needing any human input aside from making sure the Internet is on and the broker is connected.


    The purpose of this course is threefold. First, we want to get the community involved with mechanical systems, and after reading this book you will completely understand system reports, and will be able to quickly and accurately evaluate the good and bad points of any trading system. Needless to say, if you've ever been duped by a black-box system for sale in a classified ad, that won't happen again.


    Second, we want to share some of our working systems, and you'll gain access to around a dozen fully operational systems, each of which was designed for use in live trading. These aren't dummy systems built only for instructional value either - they really work. If you just want to skip the theory and start trading, you can. Go to page 312, and you've got the source code for a system that turned $25k to over $1M in only 5 years. Have fun!


    Lastly, as with all our other materials, we hope that by releasing these systems to the community, they will find their way back to us with improvements. There are some really smart people using Wave59, and putting good tools in the hands of smart people is never a bad idea.


    The manuscript has been sent off to the printer, and we expect the books to be ready to ship in the next month. At that time, the price of this manual will be $1995, but if you order now and are willing to wait for delivery, you can get in at the pre-sales price of $1795, a discount of 10%. It's not cheap, but it's not crazy expensive either, especially considering that we could have sold any of the individual systems for more than the price of the whole book had we wanted to. In fact, 15 years ago, a version of the William Tell system was sold for over $4k per pop, and none of those people ever complained about having to pay too much. That's just one chapter out of thirteen!


    There are over twenty years of system knowledge, tips, and tricks packed into the largest book Wave59 has ever offered (almost 330 pages!), and we are very excited to be able to release this information to the community. Don't miss this opportunity to get your own copy of what is destined to be a classic.

    Tradingwisdom I think you should add some more details of what's on offer here because Earik's stuff is quite esoteric and even though brilliant might not carry the same appeal to our members as other "make $1 Million in 3 months gurus!!

    acepro, thank for suggestion. Will do.
    There's been a growing interest building around this course among members of third party investment communities and forums, so the original idea was in providing these people, who are already interested and are familiar with this course's content, with a link to a group buy thread. But if long-time members of GI would as well get interested in Earik's latest work, this of course would be great!
    This course is, by the way, quite different from what has previously been published by Earik and borrows very little from the esoterics.

    I was a long time member of wave 59 and have some of the esoteric courses and you are right about this course. Earik is a brilliant mind and has a lot of integrity so this course will be very interesting to a lot of people. Maybe you can enrol these other members to this GB to raise interest and make this GB a success.
    Realistically you are looking for maximum $100 per member contribution to a GB especially a quite obscure one like this one. Good luck with it

    Marco Aurelio, thanks a lot for your participation and for your help in organizing this thread!! But how really do manage you do that - parsing large images from a remote source? I tried doing this in many different ways, but finally had to reduce pictures in size to meet 19,5Kb restriction. Please, can you teach me??

    first, I saved the Earik Beann - Mechanical Trading Systems website as JPEG format using: http://www.hiqpdf.com/free_html_to_pdf_converter/ or https://convertio.co/pt/html-jpg/


    afterwards, I opened the JPEG on Paint and split it into 2 images to upload correctly (as they limit the image size)


    then, I upload the 2 images using http://imgur.com/


    finally, I copied the 2 url's image and post it on groupinsiders using the Insert Image button.


    you don't need to do these process again. you can copy and past the images that I have uploaded. Click with the right mouse button and copy the image url.

    Marco Aurelio,
    Thanks a lot for detailed instructions!! Really feel silly now. Will update images in the original post shortly.
    We submitted our last posts almost at the same moment. Hehe..

    We can't loose this Mechanical Trading System.

    Earik Beann indicators and techniques are excellent.

    Check a brief presentation here and compare it with conventional indicators: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jxd0o7sbjBU (it has 3 parts)

    I am interested in this and am watching his video presentation now.

    I am curious if you feel like this would be sufficient for a relative noob to get into trading. I don't have a brokerage acct yet, have been waiting to find a solid system or mentor before jumping in on my own.... But, I am ready to fund one with funds I could lose if I totally mess everything up... I'd consider those funds to be a part of my learning curve.

    I have been doing a lot of reading about the mindset of trading and have read about several systems like turtle trading and some others, but never felt like I got enough info to be ready to start.

    So, my question is... With his system and software, would there be enough here that I could eventually be able to get through noob stage and get some momentum on my side?

    ....Or is this product more for people who are already trading to help them do better?

    Ok, back to the videos for me. This is very intriguing. Thanks for posting.

    Fair question, Cartellian! And to answer it I would just like to say one thing: I wish I could go back 10 years from now and come across something like this! Man, what a difference would that make. Really. This course is filled with wisdom that takes years or decades (or, in most cases, forever) to figure out on your own. So, I think, you may consider yourself a very lucky person, and yes, I'm pretty confident this course will give you a great jump-start and a huge advantage. Take the simplest case of using protective stops - took me over 5 years and hundreds of hours of backtesting to find out this is sure way to ruin your account (how much money I have lost on the way I shy to tell). And this is just one chapter in the course.
    Most techniques (except probably artificial intelligent and other computationally intensive methods) can be implemented in an old-fashioned way, with no need to write an algorithm, but learning to code really pays off. Just start with some basic tutorials for EasyLanguage or any other script language, and you won't believe how simple coding a trading system is. In a few months you will never want to go back to discretionary trading.
    As for Wave59 platform, I think this is simply the best trading software on the market today.
    Experienced traders will of course benefit more from the material, but this is for one thing: they know what to listen for and what to ignore. But with Earik, as always, from the first page to the last you don't want to miss a single sentence. Believe me, courses like this are very rare breed!

    Hope you join us in this group buy venture!

    I guess my wording above was a little confusing sorry about that... I meant to say I am 'curious' about this and not ready to put my interest and dollar amount on the list.

    Now, it looks like to really put this book to use, one would need to also have the Wave59 software ($259/mo) and an interactive broker's account and data service... Correct?

    I definitely see the value here, but I do feel like I'm looking at a pro level information that ties in with a pro level tool (that I don't have yet) and I'm still total noob-status.

    With that said, I have been researching Wave59 and am extremely impressed with the system. It does seem like the type of tool I have been looking for (have looked at ThinkOrSwim before and a few others) I just feel a bit 'in over my head' with the amount of new information I'd be taking on here.

    I will do more research today and I am open to your insight or tips for me at this point.

    As someone who was a long time user of Wave59 and a student of Earik's work, I can highly recommend it as well as his educational material. If you are serious about trading then look into his work as he is a genuine guy with some really cutting edge work that works!

    Absolutely NOT! Open source code for the systems is indeed included with the course, and if you want to plug and run them right away, you can. But this is probably the last thing you want to do, what you want instead is tweaking them, playing around, taking your own trading approach and applying principles outlined in the course in order to improve it, hopefully to a significant degree. If you still want to run the systems without tweaking, I don't see how they are dependent on any proprietary indicators or modules of Wave59 (with exception for a variant of Artificial Bee Colony, artificial swarm intelligence algorithm included with Hive Technology module (chapter 8 of the Course) - but are you really able to code that one on your own?), which means it isn't imperative to use Wave59 PRO2 (which costs $99/month, not $259, data feed you have from your broker) as an execution platform. Instead, you can recode systems in EasyLanguage, and run on TradeStation, or any other platform of your choice.
    Please don't sabotage this GB with poorly founded statements, we are having hard time recruiting members without it.))
    True value of this course may be hard to appreciate for a trading freshman. Textbooks like "The Evaluation and Optimization of Trading Strategies" by Robert Pardo is a great starting point for a beginner.
