MOON is a customizable hedge-fund style day trading system for accredited professional traders. It is traded everyday by the designer. Though it was developed to catch the intraday trends in the S&P 500 Equity Index Futures market, it can also catch the intraday trend in the 30 Year Treasury Bond Futures market. MOON can be deployed as an automatic plug-and-play trading system, or used for decision support by discretionary traders. This system will work on many bar types such as Kase, Momentum, Range, Renko, Heikin-Ashi, as well as Tick, Volume, and Regular bars ranging in size from 1 to 30 minutes. The start of trading and the time of the last entry can be controlled, as can the time to exit the market at any time prior to the close of the market. The default targets and stops can be also changed to suit the trader’s personal style and risk-reward tolerance. No restrictions have been placed on the number of charts of MOON that can be opened with different symbols, or the number of contracts that can be traded.here.
Looks very promising. I ran both Moon-ES and Star-US in the simulator for a week. And both performed quite well. – B.
I have been testing out MOON on T-Bonds (USM15) AND the S&P (ESM15) and it is VERY promising on both and easy to use plus great support IF necessary. – G.
Excellent. I am most impressed with your software! – B.
Results. MOON is working for me. – G.
Amazing Experience. I've had some good success with the moon strategy. In addition to being a good developer, Sal Starzun has been
absolutely top notch at walking me through anything i did not understand. I highly recommend using his product. – R.B.
Amazing System – Great Investment. Moon is one of the best trading decisions you will ever make. Moon's ability to trade in multiple markets and time frames puts the strategy head and shoulders above most. Lastly, I can't say enough enough good things about the customer service as well! - M.J.W.
Highly Excellent. This is as good as you'll find anywhere. Read the developer's notes on this strategy before going live. We are very satisfied with the results of our live trades. - J.K.
Very Excited. I've been using Moon for over 6 months and I an super excited about the long term prospect of set-it and for get-it over the long haul! – P.T.
Well what Can I say, brilliant!!!This is REALLY good system! I have traded this with @ES and @US with very good results. But I have to say that Trading with this system looks easier than it is. I mean it is easy, if you just take all trades and DON'T do anything else! If you do that you'll do great! But very often this system makes a trade or two where (if you know some technical analysis) it looks crazy! And right after that one loosing trade it makes a ton of money. Don't try to avoid losses, take it all and you will take winners too. Recommended!! – J.
So Easy To Work With. The most easily customizable system you have ever worked with along with Sal Starzun, the best developer to answer your questions – R.T.
Best what you can find in appstore - very good, can apply it for TY and US as well! – W.B
Excellent System. Very good system for ES and 30 years bond (@us. You should give a try. Thanks Sal Starzun for making this great system. – R.V.
Highly Excellent. Helps portfolio. No overnight trades. Read the story written about this strategy by the developer to learn what to expect. Most accurate. It's true, actual trading results are less than back testing results, but there's plenty left for my happiness... and it's consistent. Working best right now on @US 15-minute, but @ES and @TY not slouches. –J.K.
Very good strategy. Very happy with it, I'm making money. Customer service and support is outstanding! Thanks for everything Sal Starzun! – F.T.T.
Outstanding live trading. Sal Starzun and his group are first class with support and products. Been a Moon-ES user since May 2014.Trading live ES, US, and LH. It took some hours of back testing and fine tuning to find my own risk and profit system. That what's great with Moon -ES, you can back test with Renko, Momentum, Range, Minute, tick any chart and see results. I trade live when signals are given. I have learned do not second guess the signals when given. Thanks Sal - K.P.
Getting a new trial to take a fresh look. Reviewed it in the past. Now going back to take another look. - TX.U
Impressive Results. During simulation, I got impressive results. On auto-pilot, it appears to intelligently exit at a propitious time to book a profit and exit to minimize losses. Kudos Sal Starzun for brilliant work. I look forward to going live with some degree of confidence, sorely lacking previously. - W.L
SIM Testing Results Positive. First time I have ever tested a system that actually went positive in SIM (ES and US). Looking forward to going live with it. –A.S.
Very powerful product. Sal Starzun is excellent at responding and answering questions on his products. Very happy I found this. – R.F.
In the short time I have been using MOON it seems to show very promising results with: US, TY, AD, BP, CD and EC! - M.S.
FIRST LIVE TRADE = $300! We extensively tested Moon-ES before paying, then our first live trade hit target. Our testing gave us good confidence and showed how robust this brilliant strategy really is. It's well worth the monthly rent, for sure! Thank you Sal Starzun... and thank you TradeStation. - J.K.
The Very Best Available. Excellent product and exceptional service and email feedback. - D.G.N
Consistent Positive Gainer. This looks like it will continue a profitable pattern, it does require some experimenting with the proper setup, looking forward to learning more about this. There are some ups and downs, but not too extreme, thank God! - G.S.
Great Strategy. Compared to any other strategies I have I tried, this is showing positive results. I have seen the last 10 months of live results and is showing a profit despite slippage. I am going to try on my real account. - D.C.B
Great first inpression! Good results give confidence..I am gaining trust & confidence at the same time. - D.D
Probably the best you'll find - I think this is the only strategy I can trust. Recommended +++++ M.I.D.L.V.
Testing - so far so good! I'm gaining confidence with this system and getting ready to go live. This strategy appears to be working! – T.F.
Needed a bit more info B4 jumping in - Being using Moon-ES V3 for the last 8 days in SIM. Needed some input from actual users. Support at ES Moon was helpful and cooporative. I may leave SIM and start taking real trades much earlier than I thought. This bot rocks. "RECOMMENDED" – L.
Ok - But slippage happens - Beware - It is a great idea for a system but recommends that no slippage be accounted for - I've been using for the 30 day free trial to determine slippage - Just this morning the first trade had 1/2 point slippage and the second (Of which was a cover and a short) had 3/4 point slippage in both the cover and the new short. Once you add even $12.50 slippage into the system it destroys the wonderful equity curve. *** I've since had some discussion with the developer and they are very helpful in explaining and answering questions. Thank you. – F.T.
Full Moon. Moon has been on fire the last three days: 12 Wins and 1 Loss - C.F
Tried for stimulus trading works very well. Going to Live trading! - E.T
Great system on 10 point days in the SP or greater. You get chopped up if range day is small. Will defiantly advise traders to give it a try. - N.
Great tool for involved traders. Everyone should trial test this product for the 30 days the developer gives .. You won't be disappointed. - R.
Great product and support. Just subscribed to the strategy. it seems to be working. The developer provides great support. Basically he answered all my questions with well thought emails. - J.Z.
Simply Amazing. Using Heikin Ashi bar on back testing the strategy gives amazing result on 10 minute. The developer also provide a very nice support. Clear and fast answer on all questions. Five Stars. - A.S.P.
The moon system seems to be too good to be made from a human. The system has a impressive smooth performance curve. I think it is possible to apply rules of money management like optimized f with the system. The RINA Index was very high with 2713 on 5. of august 2013 (15 minutes charts @ES 5 years data)!. - T.
Powerful strategy for active traders. A very solid daytrade system for the popular ES market. - Anon.
Outstanding Strategy. I am so impressed with this strategy! After testing countless strategies, this developer's entry logic truly performs well in the real market. The signals are consistently profitable and quite often the default target is met. This is a winner!!! - K.M.
Excellent Strategy. The Moon day trade ES system has executed very profitable trades for me three days in a row (5 points per day). Without regressing form my entry to get anywhere near a stop. I have tried every system available through TradeStation so far for the ES and this one performs as good live as it does in simulation. Additionally it comes with a 30 day free trial. Another positive is it made the 5 points with only one trade per day, significantly cutting down on commissions by avoiding multiple entries and exits. I would highly recommend the Moon to anyone who wants to make money... Which I assume is everyone reading this :) - D.H.
Entry Logic – As soon as the Regular Trading Hours begin at 8:30 am Exchange Time in Chicago, MOON will begin to scan the futures prices in search for an entry pattern. When an opportunity arises, MOON will print an up arrow to signal a BUY or a down arrow to signal a SELL. The system will enter at a limit price and will stay with that position until the default target using a limit price is achieved, or there is a change in the signal, or the default stop has been triggered at market price, or the end of NYSE trading day has been reached at 3:00 pm CT. MOON will then automatically exit any open positions at the market price. There are no overnight trades. Since trading technology is not fail-safe, all automation must be used with caution and constant supervision.
It is important to ensure that no position has been left open and carried into the overnight market inadvertently.
Data - The system requires a minimum of 50 days of @ES.D data or @US data.
Signals – The system will generate more signals if you use smaller bars. There are almost equal numbers of long and short trades.
MOON 30 min - 3
MOON 15 min - 5
MOON 10 min - 7
MOON 5 min - 12
Money Management Rules – The system allows users to redefine the default Profit Target and Stop Loss, while sophisticated traders can also adjust the Daily Profit and Daily Loss to suit their risk-return tolerance.
Version 9.1 (Update 25)
There are eight user-defined inputs.
1) ProfitTarget. The default value of $200 can be changed to suit the trader’s risk-return profile. This amount is per contract. If you trade 5 contracts, you do not need to change the target to $1,000. The system will calculate it from the number of contracts you have specified and end the trade when the target of $200 per contract has been reached.
2) StopLoss. The default value of $550 can be changed to suit the trader’s risk-return profile. This amount is per contract. If you trade 5 contracts, you do not need to change the stop to $2,750. The system will calculate it from the number of contracts you have specified and end the trade when the stop of $550 per contract has been reached.
3) NumberOfContracts. The default value is 1.
4) StartTime. The default is 0830 (i.e. 8:30 am Exchange Time). The system will initiate new trades after the StartTime is reached.
5) EndTime. The default is 1430 (i.e. 2:30 pm Exchange Time). The system will not initiate any new trades after the EndTime. The EndTime can be set to the same time as FinalExit, but cannot be greater than the FinalExit.
6) FinalExit. The default is 1500 (i.e. 3:00 pm Exchange Time). The system will close any open positions at this time. The FinalExit can be set to the same time as EndTime, but cannot be less than the EndTime.
7) Daily Profit. This is a money management feature. The default is $1,200 per contract before trading commission. Once this amount is reached, no new trades will be initiated, but while you are in the current trade, the profit could exceed the specified value by an amount equal to the profit target minus commission. This feature is provided for advanced traders and must be used with great care. Novice traders should not change the default values.
8) Daily Loss. This is a money management feature. The default is $1,200 per contract before trading commission. Once this amount is reached, no new trades will be initiated, but while you are in the current trade, the loss could exceed the specified value by an amount equal to the stop loss plus commission. This feature is provided for advanced traders and must be used with great care. Novice traders should not change the default values.
