Louis Lukac – Head of Algorithmic Trading Louis Lukac was the former Director of Futures Research at Prudential Securities. In 1990, along with Jack Schwager he founded Wizard Trading. His pedigree includes system design while he was still an undergraduate at Purdue University. The Wizard Global Systematic Program employs computer assisted trading strategies based principally on technical analysis. Technical analysis uses internal market data (e.g., price, volume, open interest, sentiment) to determine price trends. No discretionary intervention has been utilized although the Advisor does reserve the right to utilize its discretion in extraordinary circumstances. The program uses a wide spectrum of strategies including trend following, countertrend, and pattern recognition approaches developed and streamlined over many years of research. Additionally, this program incorporates a volatility adjusted portfolio allocation method developed initially by Louis Lukac and Jack Schwager. The program attempts to optimize position size on a daily basis based on the relative volatility of multiple market sectors across previous time periods. Market sector allocations are based on several criteria, including historical profitability, sector balance, and liquidity.

Most traders and investors possess little edge to compete with institutional money managers. The institutional investor spends 90 hours a week reading fundamental research covering a specific number of stocks. Their resources are vast with access to top Wall Street research. Even top technical analysts who
have spent their career studying the markets cannot compete with computer based models. So how can the average investor expect to compete? Our mission is to help both investors and traders become more profitable while protecting their investments. For the past 25 years we have designed our computer based models and have been running real money with these models. The core of our platform is our proprietary algorithm that has been not just back tested but running institutional money for 15 years. We initially built the site after developing the basic concept for family and friends to access our algorithm. It worked so well, we decided we could help level the playing field for all investors.
ChartLabpro.com was started by the founders of TheChartLab.com, Greg Troccoli and Brett Golden. We wanted to create an easy to use self directed investment tool. We wanted to build a stand alone tool and give investors a platform to become great investors. Unlike Thechartlab.com, where we provide our
proprietary technical analysis and stock picks, ChartLabPro.com empowers you to take control of your own charting in an easy to use way without having to be a professional. Technical Analysis is a great tool for investors and traders to determine where to buy and sell stocks, bonds and commodities. But what if you are not a technician? How do you know at what price to buy or sell? Or if your stock is in a bullish or bearish trend? Most people have not spent decades mastering technical analysis and pattern recognition. ChartLabPro is for any investor who: • Wants to stop guessing where they should buy or sell a stock. • Wants to be alerted if their stock becomes bullish or bearish • Wants to know the short, medium and long term trend How ChartLabPro Works We have automated technical analysis so you don't have to be an expert. It's that simple, no gimmicks or false promises of astronomical returns. Technical analysis is security analysis discipline for forecasting the direction of prices through the study of past market data, primarily price and volume. The theory behind technical analysis is that investors collectively repeat the behavior of the investors that preceded them. To a technician, the emotions in the market may be irrational, but they exist. Because investor behavior repeats itself so often, technicians believe that recognizable (and predictable) price patterns will develop on a chart.
