New Algo Products
One of my goals in 2020 was to take my pattern-recognition, volatility-based indicators I used with clients and convert them into automated trading strategies for clients. Then I decided to make them available as stand-alone products for anyone outside of my ‘inner circle’ of LaDucTrading members. Although sophisticated in their composition, I designed these indicators to be SO simple to use and to not require my analysis/interpretation to use them. Let me be clear: my new algo products do not replace my style of macro-to-micro analysis and trade set ups, because there is only “One Samantha”, BUT, they are built to use independently to support/enhance anyone’s trading style and time-frame.
These best-of-breed indicators will absolutely alert you to volatility entering the market across three important time-frames: Chase, Swing and Trend. Their goal is to help you stay on the right side of your trade without getting shaken out – whether you are a day, swing or position trader.
I am very pleased to announce that my Risk On/Risk Off Indicators being built on Vigtec.io and are 90% done!
Of course, I can’t wait to announce when they go live, so stay tuned!
These are truly AMAZING ALGOS – and they are coming REAL SOON to our In-App Marketplace! 🔥🦾🔥 https://t.co/QlyGz0RVeO

New Brokerage-Triggered Trade Alert Upgrade
Basically, we had built a brokerage platform on top of a brokerage platform – now we are rolling out an upgrade that will allow the head trader to work directly within the IB platform that then communicates with our app so we can have the much-needed trust with control, the security with the visibility while improving risk management and performance. This is all to make for a better client experience! Andrew and I will be doing beta-testing for rest of January and will announce when the integration is complete! Can’t wait.
Slack will be open all day and night where Andrew and I will continue to populate time-sensitive market-moving news, trade ideas and set ups, with annotated charts, watch-lists, and key option activity. In particular, this is where I will post my intraday market thoughts, Intermarket Analysis, macro trade ideas and risk on/risk off indicator alerts. As a result, I will be delivering less live trading room commentary (see new hours below) so I can focus on providing more actionable trade alerts.If you have have any issues getting into our Slack workspace, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know.
New Trading Room Hours
This is the plan in a nutshell…
- 9:00 – 12:30 Market Analysis
I will come on at 9 o’clock every day for pre-market look but then I am going to be working in the background starting 9:30 while I populate slack and actively enter and manage trades. I will pop back in intermittently throughout the day – most notably 11:30-12:30 – and on occasion for an end-of-day trade review at 3:30 before the close. Members can ask me questions in Zoom chat for custom analysis and in member chat in SLACK. Remember, SLACK is open all day and where Andrew and I actively post.
Guest Captain Interviews
I am very honored to have had the response and the outstanding guests on my recently launched Guest Captain Interview series. Every Tuesday I meet with Jonathan of Vigtec.io to discuss our view of market option structure that drives the direction of the market (and volatility) in addition to timely topics related to investment themes. It’s a sophisticated look from macro-to-micro and it’s worth a follow.
Every other Thursday, I have been meeting up with Anand of SangLucci to uncover the hidden gems out there in our Women in Trading and Finance interview series. This is another inspiring view of trading that is birthed from my desire to elevate and support this growing segment of the market, and it’s a movement worth supporting.
In the off weeks, my Thursday Macro-to-Micro Power Hour has focused on a subject-matter expert in a particular trading domain. We’re talking fabulous insights and strategy reveals from Oil to SPACs, with much more to come.
In addition to broadcasting these interview live each Tues/Thurs at the close from 4:00-5:00 ET, will will be live-streaming them on YouTube as well as continuing to archive them under PAST INTERVIEWS but best to subscribe on our LADUCTRADING YOUTUBE CHANNEL to be alerted.
