The Gemini approach to markets really turns everything the financial industry tells you about markets on its head. A well-designed system can successfully time the markets, and the best buy-and-hold time frame for index investing may be more like two daysthan two years.
Gemini is like streaming your music from Spotify or Pandora while other approaches to markets are like buying vinyl records. The algorithm takes advantage of the latest in computer hardware, software development and behavioral science research to help members profit from volatility in a whole new way.
The systems achieve above-market gains by treading what its developer calls a Sequence Path -- a trail through the market chaos that allows it to alternate long and short positions without cognitive biases toward a fixed point of view. Even though the Sequence Path winds through a lot of underlying complexity, its twists and turns are presented in a format that is easy for independent traders to follow.
Past results are no guarantee of future returns. All accounts may not achieve comparable results. Futures trading involves the risk of substantial loss. "Gross" results do not include the cost of subscription or brokerage commissions.
HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT.
IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS.
