At Strategic we offer a system assist brokerage service where you select the trading systems you would like to trade and we manage the trading for you on your account.
Your account is opened and held with Interactive Brokers via an Advisor Account structure. This links your trading account held with Interactive Brokers to our Master Account which then enables us (SCM) to place orders on your account on your behalf. All trades executed on your account utilise the award winning trading systems you select to trade when opening an account to determine when to enter and when to exit a trade.
Please note that all funds and banking is done directly with Interactive Brokers. The only fees you will be charged are the brokerage, performance or account management fees you agree to in your account opening documentation. Your counter-party risk (risk of default through broker collapse) is with Interactive Brokers, not SCM. We beleive Interactive Brokers and the advisor account structure offers our clients security and transparency.
For more information on your account security please click HERE to be directed to Interactive Brokers website information in relation to account security.
Currently we offer futures trading systems across many different asset classes including stock indices, currencies, bonds and commodities with plans to offer options, forex and stock/ETF systems in the future.
