Some Questions from Subscribers (Dec. 16, 1999)

"Do you post the "Commitment of traders' report" at this site? If so, when will it next be posted?"

Editor-in-Chief Courtney Smith: "No, we don't publish it on our web site because the CFTC publishes it for free on: cftc.gov"

"As a new subscriber I was sent a gratis back issue. In it (June 1999) Lars Kestner reviewed the OptionVue 5 program, and you wrote a note that there was to be a review of Omega Research's OptionStation, and a comparison of the two. Has this appeared between then and the current issue, and if so, when?"

Editor-in-Chief Courtney Smith: No, we haven't reviewed the OptionStation program yet. However, we will have a review of it and the Omega ProSuite in one of the next three issues.

"All your reviews of systems seem to be of futures trading. Are these outcomes also applicable to the options on these underlying futures, or does trading commodities options require different systems altogether?"

Editor-in-Chief Courtney Smith: The reason that we only test futures systems is that it is impossible to test systems for trading options. We cannot get intraday data on every strike and so on. You can obviously use options in conjunction with futures trading systems. However, the results will be different because you have added an additional instrument to the mix. Over the long run, I would imagine that the results would be similar but the attributes of each system could be quite different. For example, it may be that using a long term trend following system to buy long dated options may work fine but using a two to three day system to buy the same options will not work well at all.

"Many words and terms in the CTCR are mysterious to a newcomer. Is there a basic glossary you can recommend? It's not possible to judge from the website descriptions of the books you offer which is basic and impartial and just gives simple descriptions and definitions. Your suggestions would be much appreciated."

Editor-in-Chief Courtney Smith: Let's work on two different solutions. First, I want to put up a glossary on the site for people to understand the various terms. Second, I will put up a page that has products recommended for beginners.
