2  The protective loss stops are calculated based on the actual market volatility and are placed at 2 times Average  True Range (ATR) from the previous day close. The ATR is defined as the average of the price movement over a preset number of days.  Atlas-35 exit rules do not specify profit objectives and the system offsets the trading positions on reverse signals. Despite this, we calculate minimum targets for the recommended positions. The minimum targets are based on 50% Fibonacci Retracement Levels.

THE HIGH DEGREE OF LEVERAGE THAT IS OFTEN OBTAINABLE IN COMMODITY TRADING CAN WORK AGAINST YOU AS WELL AS FOR YOU. THE USE OF LEVERAGE CAN LEAD TO LARGE LOSSES AS WELL AS GAINS.

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.
