2) What makes Zoom in Profit Algo System different?

I’ve found that multiple layers of indicator filters tend to contradict each other. Instead of trying to make one perfect strategy, the ZiP Algo System’s premise is:

To develop multiple strategies whose results hedge each other through an inverse synergy of cumulative drawdown.

3) If your system is so good why do you sell it?

It's for mutual benefit: It helps me with further development costs and provides with you an affordable automated trading system.

4) What resources are needed and how much capital?

• Ninjatrader 8 and live futures data (14-day free trial is available). When trading a real money account, you'll need to upgrade Ninjatrader platform license, or you can continue having it free by funding at least $400 with the Ninjatrader Brokerage account.

• Very reliable internet (99.99% uptime) and a desktop computer.  For added reliability and peace of mind, vps or dedicated server is highly recommended. We have a list of our most reliable service experiences.

• Day trading margin as low as $500 does NOT work for system trading. It's recommended $10K per contract. If you intend to daytrade with lower margin, you'll need to optimize the strategies to meet your personal goals. Even better, consider the low risk approach of Trader Funding Programs. See V3 page for more details.

5) What if I still need further assistance?

Ninjatrader offers free training on all aspects of its platform. For installing and running the strategies, you’ll receive tutorials as well as direct assistance for importing the strategies to Ninjatrader 8.

6) Can the Zoom in Profit Algo System be used on any market and swing trading?

The main markets are the e-mini S&P 500 (symbol ES) and NASDAQ (NQ). 

Micro-contracts: You can trade the MES (one-tenth of e-mini S&P 500 contract size. Proportionally, the micro-contracts incur more commission cost.

7) Why trade futures?

  • First, futures markets have large pools of liquidity, whereby you control a diversified number of stocks or commodities with a single order.
  • Second, futures trading provides ample use of leverage, which is adequate for short-term trading using pre-determined targets of profit and loss. Risk Disclosure

Zoom in Algo System is the premier provider of automated trading software for indicators. Ninjatrader is a leader in futures charting platforms with proven autotrading capabilities. 

If you are new to futures trading, think of it like this:

1. Indicators are like an automobile that carries buy/sell signals from the markets onto your charts. The user is the driver/operator of the "vehicle" (indicator).

2. Zoom in Algo System turns indicators into a standalone trading system with full control of trade execution, i.e., your trading autopilot. 

3. Ninjatrader is the information highway on which Thing 1 and Thing 2 happen. 

About Zhwoun Santos:
I’ve used the Ninjatrader platform since 2008. I made my first algorithm robot at the height of huge market volatility, which made it look easy to daytrade futures. Little did I know that when markets quiet down, volatility-based strategies tank. Ever since I've dreamed of creating a system of multiple outcomes to survive all market conditions. A more robust platform since the launch of Ninjatrader 8 and professional indicators by have facilitated this process. As of July 27, 2021, with the collaboration of 20 traders and systems engineers in my coop at, we'll reach new heights of achievement in seeking trading profits ethically. 

Btw, 'zhwoun' is the phonetic pronunciation of my seemingly unpronounceable Brazilian name João. John sounds good, too!
