How it Works

NTACT Trading has developed futures trading strategies, also called futures trading systems. Computers make sure they get executed as designed, round-the-clock and without emotion. It leverages the strength of each without compromising the other. If you are currently trading or have online trading experience, you may qualify for the “self monitored” approach to trading NTACT’s automated trading strategies.


Once you’ve decided to trade automated trading strategies with NTACT Trading, open your account with a self directed broker that has the ability to run automated trading strategies. NTACT Trading will send you some initial set up instructions as well as verify you have the correct installation for the strategy. You will receive an initial email with the strategy to install on your computer. You will receive weekly updates that will need to be installed. Maximum 30 minutes per week on weekends to update the strategy. (Most self monitored subscribers dedicate less time for updates)

Transparency and Control

You will always have complete transparency and access to the performance results of your account. The strategy is executed in your account. Although your selected strategies will call the shots on the trades to make, you will always have control of your account.

Automated Trading Strategies will remove the emotion of trade decisions but not from trade results.

You have the ability to turn on or turn off your strategy: daily, weekly, and even intraday. As a result, your emotions will play a role in your trade results. We mention this, because it will become an issue. If you are looking to completely remove emotions from your trading, please explore our “100% Hands Free Approach.”

Automated Futures Trading Strategy Execution is ideal for traders who:

  • Wish to defer their trading decisions to an automated futures trading strategy. Some traders find that being relieved of the decision-making responsibilities regarding when to enter and exit trades, and committing to following the strategy trades regardless of momentary apprehension, has improved their trading results.
  • Have previously experienced poor trading results due to ineffective trade selection, improper entry or exit strategies, or momentary apprehensions in the fast-changing futures market.
  • Are too busy to fully monitor the futures market, but would like work with an automated futures trading strategy based on their ideal trade activity level, account capital range and trading product mix.
  • Are new to futures trading and lack the time to learn everything there is to know about trading to participate in the markets independently.
  • Wish to reap the benefits of online futures trading through experienced brokers and a trade desk staff who transmit and execute trades electronically whenever possible.
