Product Review: FutureScope, Trade Search Over The Internet by John Sweeney
Given a contract, a time period, and a set of parameters, FutureScope, an Internet-based trade search service for Lind-Waldock customers, can tell you how a proposed trade would have resulted on
historical data. FutureScope looks for repeating trends in the futures markets — markets ranging from agriculturals to financials (rates) to the Standard &
Poor’s to metals to currencies. Available for searching
are 20 years of data on 32 different contracts.
FutureScope works simply. You tell it which market you’d like to trade and when you’d like to trade, and after checking some other inputs, it goes back five, 10, or 20 years to see how things might have worked out had you traded the best trade available during that period in previous years.
