When people subscribe to your strategy we will collect the subscription fees and deliver them to you the publisher, minus our commission. There are many web sites that publish signals or alerts and promise to make investors a fortune, but realistically there is rarely a real track record or consistent reporting to give investor an idea how a given strategy would perform or what is the long term performance you can expect. SFOsignals is designed to solve this problem. When a signal is created system will use independent third party market price to determine entry or exit levels, thus signal publishers cannot manipulate the results of their signals and therefore all returns you see on our site are true and call it Honest Market Signals. SFOsignals will record and tabulate returns of all the signals and publish historical performance of all strategies available on our site to all the customers to see.
