SMART Signals:
Objective. Transparent.

Get trade ideas driven by statistics – not opinions.
Our SMART Signals engine analyses dozens of major
global markets based on years of historic market data.

See how each signal has performed the last 10 times it was triggered to get transparency into their previous performance.

(Past performance is not indicative of future performance)


What are SMART Signals?

The SMART Signals engine uses a selection algorithm to automatically monitor 36 major global markets across thousands of price data points to highlight potential trading opportunities.

Once it has identified a price pattern which has been successful historically in a given market, it will then show them through the SMART Signals dashboard.

Each signal represents a short-term potential trade in a 4-, 6-, 8- or 12-hour timeframe and comes complete with an auto-populated trade ticket with suggested take profit and stop loss levels. Please note, signal trades will not automatically close at the end of the signal period, you can choose when to close them out.
