Q. How do the TradeFinders work?

A. The TradeFinders automatically source the highest yielding trades in the market for selected strategies, subject to our proprietary algorithms and filters for parameters such as adequate liquidity. The point is that we only look for those securities with enough volume and open interest to enable you find a market if you want to reverse your position.

Q. I found a trade that should have been included within the TradeFinder list for a specific strategy.

A. Remember, we filter for specific liquidity and other requirements before running the algorithms. Therefore, it is possible that some seemingly high yielding trades escape our net, but, with some research, you may discover that they possess some rather disadvantageous characteristics that makes us disqualify the trade after our filtering process.

A. Yes, this latest version will work on Safari and Firefox.

Q. What version of Windows do I need?

A. Any version of Windows will work provided you can use IE 6 or above, Firefox or Safari as your browser (see next question)
