Simple logic: Both entry and exit logic are straightforward in identifying the trend and trend change.
Versatility: AXIOM is able to trade a variety of markets. This versatility indicates a system based upon the realities of the market.
Robustness: The walk-forward optimization results show considerable consistency of returns over years of dramatically changing markets. This increases confidence in the likelihood that strong performance may continue.
Diversification: AXIOM Index performs well on a number of indexes, allowing clients to create a portfolio with a risk/reward profile fitted to individual preferences.
Low Correlations: Correlations with a number of the other TradingVisions systems are low, providing sensible opportunities for combinations into portfolios.
Peace of Mind: Early in a move, the protective stop is moved to lock in a profit, thus reducing the risk window to shorter periods and also ensuring that healthy winners aren't allowed to become losers.
Staying Power: Compared to daytrading systems, the advantage of holding positions is that AXIOM Index is able to capture larger period movements. Additionally, by designing the system to run nearly wide open after locking in an initial profit, the market is allowed breathing room, limiting premature exits and yielding larger winning trades.
AXIOM Index is a mechanical, trend-following, swing system that is recommended for the emini Russell, emini S&P, and emini NASDAQ. It employs a unique entry mechanism that utilizes a proprietary channel built upon the confluence and mutual confirmation of a number of trend cycles. The system may be leased and traded through designated broker-assist programs or TradeStation brokerage accounts. AXIOM runs on the TradeStation platform and was officially released April 21, 2004, when it was submitted to Futures Truth for third-party tracking. No change has been made in the proprietary channel logic since release.
AXIOM Index II WFO
On June 1, 2013 TradingVisions released AXIOM Index II WFO, which incorporates several changes to AXIOM Index made over the last two years, a change to the volatility filter, and most importantly, a walk-forward optimization protocol (see details here). Re-optimization of only the exit stops is done once a year, and the resulting best values are used to trade for the next year. The greatest strength of WFO is that it allows us to report years of out-of-sample, unoptimized results (see examples below), which is almost as valuable in evaluating a system's performance as an actual trading record. Seeing an out-of-sample history helps to verify the validity and robustness of a system much more powerfully than a traditional backtest optimization report, because the results are generated by applying the system rules and parameters to new data that's forward in time.
Lease or Purchase
AXIOM Index WFO can be leased for $65-$75/month/e-mini contract and traded through designated brokers or TradeStation., or on a limited basis it may be purchased with the logic fully revealed.
