All results are hypothetical data

Learn what this means. Remember: trading is risky. You can lose money.

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.

These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown.

In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program, which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.

Traders using Collective2 and what they are saying about it

Thousands of serious traders, passionate about the markets and producing alpha, choose to publish their strategies on the C2 platform. In their owns words…

Rik Kwan

Trade Leader | Charise Francesca

We love the transparency and features of Collective2’s web site, and its integrity as an organization. We love the fact that C2 is a technical website, and not a “dumbed down” mainstream consumer portal. Everything — from The Grid, to writing queries using C2 Explorer — is designed for trading professionals.

Francisco London

Strategy Manager | SPX Trends Futures

Collective2 lets the numbers speak for themselves. There’s really no better way for a trader to get noticed, and to do it on a trusted, verifiable platform. C2 is a great place to launch a career in the financial industry. And for subscribers, it’s a great place to find tomorrow’s stars before they become stars.

John Netto

Trade Leader | Protean & Author 'The Global Macro Edge'

Manager talent will be sourced in much different ways in the years to come when compared to the past. Web portals like Collective2 will be important third-party verification venues for trading talent. Increasingly, market participants without a Wall Street pedigree have the opportunity to display their talents on an apple-to-apples basis across all strata of their money management brethren.

João Carvalho

Trade Leader | JC Alpha

The C2 team is professional and courteous, and the AutoTrade technology works brilliantly. I recently personally experienced this when I signed up to use Interactive Brokers, and I linked it to my Collective2 account: executions happen almost instantly, at nearly identical prices to the models. Overall, the platform is amazing. The statistics are deep and useful, the layout is clean and easy to use.

Ron Kapar

Strategy Manager | Universal

I really admire what Collective2 has built. As an IT professional, I can see that it’s an immense accomplishment — an entire middleware stack connecting trading strategies to brokers. It’s really well-done, and I’m glad to be a part of it.

Jay McGivney

Trader Leader | Just Forex Trades

It's a great platform. It's great on a couple of levels. For strategy managers, it's a way to prove your value in a verifiable, trusted way. For investors, it's a way to find strategies that are compatible with your risk tolerance and profit objectives. And I just love, love, love its radical transparency. Everything is just out there for people to see, and to study.

Questions about pricing?

Do I need a live account to manage a strategy?

You do not need a live (or real money) brokerage account to manage a trading strategy on Collective2. However, you can “run your strategy,” (submit buy and sell signals) with a live brokerage account at Interactive Brokers, OptionsHouse, and several other popular broker platforms.  

A trading strategy on Collective2 is also known as a “Model Account.” Although this is a simulated account, it is not an imaginary track record, based on how you would-have (should-have… could-have) traded.* You actually have to tell us: “It is time to buy XXX now.” Or: “Take a profit now on my position in YYY.” The results of these real-time buy and sell signals are the track record we show to prospective subscribers.

How much money can I make?

With over 101,000 registered users, and hundreds of millions of dollars of automated transactions flowing through our platform each week, Collective2 is the dominant trading strategy platform. If your strategy performs well at C2, you will probably make money.

How much? That obviously depends on your strategy, but we can give you some benchmarks. The highest-grossing strategy on C2 has earned over a half-million dollars. Other strategies approach the $100,000 dollars in revenue level. And quite a few good strategies cluster around the $20,000 to $30,000 level.

How do I price my subscription?

You can charge subscribers any amount but the “sweet spot” seems to be between the $49 and $199 monthly price point. Most strategies offer free trial periods.

Another important factor to consider is the amount of capital required to follow your strategy to account for margin, position sizing, draw down, and other factors. Strategies that require more than $50,000 may be less popular than those that can be followed with a smaller initial investment.

What is AutoTrading and the associated costs?

We’re not huge fans of the term AutoTrading, mostly because it sounds like something that would go on at a used car lot, yet it is the term that is widely used to describe a brokerage service that places orders on behalf of a customer.

At Collective2, we use account syncing technology and brokers that execute orders in real-time. Using the magic of software, trades are entered and exited automatically, hence they are truly “auto-traded.”

Autotrading costs include strategy fees, autotrade fees, and brokerage commissions. Strategy fees vary and are set by the individual trade leader (strategy manager). These fees range from $20-$200+/month and can be found on the Strategy Summary page on the Collective2 application. Many strategies offer free trial periods. Brokerage commissions and structures are determined by the individual brokers. Rates are published on the broker’s sites. Autotrade fees of $99/month allow for unlimited autotrading per unique account. Individual strategy fees still apply. Accounts and funds remain at your broker.

Can I subscribe and follow more than one strategy
at a time?

Yep, you sure can, provided your account has enough capital. A good way to experience the results of multiple strategies as a ‘portfolio’ is to select a few in the Simulated Broker Account account provided on Collective2. You can follow trade signals for any system that has a free-trial period.

What brokers are available to autotrade Collective2 strategies?

You can find a list of compatible brokers that can receive autotrade signals from Collective2 here. We are continually updating this list.

Do I need to be licensed or registered?

If you are an American citizen, the short answer is: No, you do not need to register with any government agency, or pass any kind of test, or have a license in order to publish trading advice. However, you must be aware of certain restrictions. The most important restriction is this. You cannot provide individualized advice to clients. That is, you cannot offer different advice to different clients based on their individual  financial situations.

If you are not an American citizen, please check with a local attorney as to what kind of constraints your government places upon you. Of note, Collective2 has trade leaders from over 30 countries. 

How do I get paid?

Once you start signing up subscribers, we’ll take care of all the transaction processing. We pay Trade Leaders (strategy managers) 70% of any subscriptions you collect through Collective2. Charge whatever you’d like for access to your strategy. 

Everything is included:

  • Offer Autotrading to subscribers. Included.
  • Broadcast signals via email, Instant Messenger, or cell phone. Included.
  • Private forum for your subscribers. Included.

How do I get my trade signals into Collective2?

To “manage a strategy” here on Collective2, you’ll need to submit buy and sell signals. That means: when it’s time to buy something, you need to tell us, “Buy now.” When it’s time to sell, you’ll need to tell us, “Sell now.”

The most simple method for communicating with C2 is to type your buy and sell signals directly into our web site, which then “publishes” them for your subscribers. It’s like using an online broker, but no broker account is required.

Or, you can explore the more advanced choices which include API, email, platform connectors (NinjaTrader, MT4, TradeStation), or programming in our Seetu language.

Can I subscribe and follow C2 strategies in a retirement account (IRA)?

Yes. Stock and stock option systems can be traded in most traditional IRA accounts. Futures systems often require an alternative investment custodian. You can check with your broker for a recommendation of companies that allow for self-directed accounts that can participate in non-traditional assets.

Can strategy subscription fees be deducted directly from my brokerage account instead of a credit card authorization?

We’re working on that and it may be available for some brokers in the future. For now, though, subscription fees can only be paid via credit card on file for your C2 account.

I don't see my broker in the list of available choices?

We are continually adding new brokerage relationships to provide choice and flexibility to Collective2 subscribers. If you are a customer of Schwab, E*TRADE, or TD Ameritrade, please contact them and say you would like to be able to follow C2 strategies at their firm.
