Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Asif Bacchus. I've been a futures and currency trader, an I.T. consultant, network engineer and freelance programmer for over a decade. Lately though, I've found myself merging all that together and turning my attention to automating and backtesting a bunch of trading indicators, tools, systems and strategies.

My focus is on simple, effective systems and indicators that provide clear and timely signals within market context -- allowing us, as traders, to make less stressful decisions about whether to take the trade. I've also developed a few drawing and trade management tools and improved on some common publicly available ones, making them more useful with clearer output.

Everything on this site has been used successfully in real trading and in realtime with real money. All the systems and indicators have a positive track record and all the settings are customizable and fully documented so you can tweak them and make them fit your trading goals and personality.

Several of the tools on this site are completely free and have publicly available source-code. I know how hard it is to find examples of properly coded actually useful trading indicators. I wanted to provide a few for fellow traders to study and maybe be inspired to create their own unique tools. The blog linked to this site is a side-project in the same vein -- I hope to provide programming tips specific to trading indicators and systems along with updates on how stuff available on this page performs over time in realtime.

I hope you find something here that helps you out, gives you some ideas, or maybe inspires you to work with me to develop an indicator or system that you've been thinking about for a while. I'm a real trader making stuff for other real traders -- I hope that's what you'll find on the rest of this site.

keep me updated!
