AXIOM e-mini S&P Swing Trade: Walk-Forward Optimization Results, $30 slippage/commission deducted. Out-of-sample, unoptimized results from 2/13/2004.

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.
