Solas Trend Finder – Futures
The Solas Trend Finder Futures software is designed for traders and investors who want to systematically trade short, medium and longer term trends on global Futures and Commodity markets such as Emini S&P, Gold, US Bonds, Wheat, Crude etc.
The Solas Trend Finder analyses price action on an individual price bar basis, identifies statistically significant levels in price action and generates buy and sell signals at optimum price levels.
Once a buy or sell signal has been identified the software automatically generates a dynamic intelligent risk management exit price, based on statistically significant levels in price action.
The following describes how the Solas Trend Finder Algorithm works:
- The price bars are automatically coloured GREEN indicating a long market bias
- The price bars are automatically coloured RED indicating a short market bias
- The price bars are automatically painted BLACK indicating a neutral bias
The dynamic intelligent stop loss levels for the software are calculated based on current market volatility and statistically significant levels in price action. These stop losses are automatically generated and updated on each price bar.
- The ORANGE DOTS signifies the dynamic stop loss level on the green long market bias.
- The YELLOW DOTS signifies the dynamic stop loss level on the red sell short market bias.
Buy when you see Green. Sell when you see Red. No math required. Our team has done the software modeling – you do the trading.
Solas Trend Finder – Risk Management with Intelligent Stops
Good trading requires good risk management. In the Solas Trend Finder software there is an in-built intelligent stop loss feature which updates automatically in line with price action and price volatility. This feature can serve as a defence measure for both protecting gains and limiting losses.
How does it work? Typically a trader places a “stop-loss order” at a predetermined dollar level. If the market moves against the trader’s position, it will automatically liquidate the position and limit further losses.
The Solas Trend Finder software generates a dynamic “intelligent” stop with all buy or sell signals – defined by statistically significant levels in price action taking into account current market volatility. The software provides stops with small orange dots below the bars for long buy positions, and small yellow dots above the bars for sell short positions.
These intelligent stops are dynamic and automatically adjust as price adjusts in real time on an intraday or end of day basis.
Market Screener at a Snapshot
The Solas Trend Finder Software works on all global Futures and Commodity markets. The following example illustrates the trade mining screener of current position status of a Index Futures watchlist. You can view the screener on either an end of day or intraday format. This screener gives you a snapshot of the current market status including current open positions and highlights new trade entry and exits on your watchlist.

Solas Trend Finder – Work on all time frames
From 1 minute to 1 month, the Solas Trend Finder works on all time frames. The following are some examples the Solas Trend Finder across varying intraday timeframes.
Below are some examples on how the Solas Trend Finder:
- Enters a trade
- Manages risk with its intelligent stops levels
- Stop loss levels adjust in line with price action to assist with protecting profits
10yr US Treasury Note (ZN) – Daily Chart
The following example illustrates the Solas Trend Finder software on a daily chart of the US Treasury Note (ZN). As you can see the instrument held an extended Long Bias (green bars) for over two months from early July to Mid September, during which time the market rose a very impressive 7 full points before go into a neutral (black candle) price action phase. The dynamic stop loss did an excellent job tracking price action higher, protecting profit en route.
30yr US Treasury Bond – 60 min Chart
The following example charts the US Treasury Bond (ZB) on a 60min interval. As you can see the Solas Trend Finder Algorithm generated the initial Long Bias (green bars) on 9/22 following a period of sideways consolidation. The dynamic stop loss again did an excellent job in protecting profits (c.5 points) as price was increasing. Following this the software very very quick to adapt to the weakening order flow by picking up a Short Bias just as it reversed off its 9/23 highs. The software took two trades lower capturing c.2.5 points on the 3 day trend lower.
Copper (HG) – 15 min Chart
This following intraday Copper trade was captured on a 15minute timeframe. The sideways consolidation at the highs failed to breakout to the upside and the Solas Trend Finder software was very quick to identify the weakening order flow once it took over. The 12hr intraday trade trended beautifully lower tracked by the dynamic stop loss which protected profit.
Emini S&P500 (ES) – 5 min Chart
Capturing solid intraday trends and holding these trades for long enough can be difficult at the best of times. The following example charts a beautiful Long Bias signal on the Emini S&P (ES). Following on from an earlier bullish bias the software again went long just ahead of the US RTH open. Price action once taking out earlier resistance rallied 12 points before consolidating. The dynamic stop loss tracked price action higher, locking in profits en route. In addition to this it also kept you in the trade for longer thus maximising the profit potential of the move.
The Solas Trend Finder software is an ideal trend identification tool to assist timing your entry into a trade and to keep you in the trade while price action is valid.
