Welcome to the second stage of the unique G-Bot Project. The original project (started several years ago by Prof. T. Gastaldi, University of Rome) has now been evolved into a new enterprise and it will continue under the code name of IBCMSF.
We maintain all the strengths of the original concepts, actually giving even more emphasis to the core of novel ideas which were originally proposed. In particular, the use of "player superposition" and the central role of the trading information and its preservation, as essential means to obtain a real and sensible edge in the long term.
What is it ?
- IBCMSF is a software system,
for Windows, suitable for hedge fund management, or for perpetual management of good risk
capital for private investors.
It is currently configured as a platform for Interactive Brokers (and, therefore, a technical prerequisite is that the fund to be traded, real or simulated, be deposited in an Interactive Brokers' account).
(It is also forming a managed fund, which is fed by the PNL "shares" and the endowments we receive.)
The software platform is now made available for use to different "categories" of investors.
Summary of main features of the application
Request it for paper (simulated) trading: free
Copies are now distributed freely for paper trading and they can be used for
an unlimited time, until possibly ready for real $$$ trading.
Send a "G-BOT request", via email, to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following
- Name, City, Country
- MAC addresses of your PC or virtual machine (if you do not know them, you can run this executable safe utility to simply retrieve them.)
- Category of "Risk capital" that is being planned to trade in the future, should you eventually decide to trade real $$$ (select one of the following):
|XL||from $2M to $10M|
|L||from $500K to $2M|
|M||from $250K to $500K|
|S||from $150K to $250K|
upon receipt of your
email request, we will place your data in an
automated "private distribution" list, and
you will be receiving (approximately each 4-6 weeks) via email a link to download
your latest software update.
The above info provided via email will be used only for the purpose of preparing and sending the periodic software-update email. It is kept stricly confidential. It is changed or immediately removed, on simple request.
(If you are supposed to get the update email (because you already sent a request) but you do not, please resend the request.)
Use the automated management platform for real $$$ trading (PNL share)
The application can be freely used as long as necessary on paper trading. For automated real $$$ trading, we require some contribution to support this project: see here
Request for application changes
Any request for change that is useful for all investors will be immediately implemented and incorporated in the next software update.
Best trading environment
Best results are usually obtained
using good risk capital (category L or superior) and trading liquid futures and fops.
As hardware, a good laptop with reliable internet connection (and possibly a backup) will suffice.
For optimal management, a peaceful environment and full commitment is also advisable.
currently accept managing funds on request, for investors in categories M or superior. There
are no management fees if we have a PNL share agreement on the "new profits"
(as explained in the previous point), or else 1% per year, anticipated, applies.
For management, either a dedicated machine will be set up on purpose ($1K per year), accessible anytime to the investor or, vice versa, the investor can setup his own machine and provide us access for remote management (e.g., via Teamviewer). Management permissions can be revoked at any time.
Anything related with the management of an account (capital, performance, etc.) is kept stricly confidential, and under no circumstance communicated to anyone.
