Performance

We measure our trading performance using ‘R’ as we feel this is an honest and fair way of displaying our returns. You can get a clear picture of how we are performing and compare us to other analysis sites.

Our performance figures refer to past trading performance of our signals. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Financial education is a better indicator of individual trader performance.

How to Trade

Intraday Trading Ideas

Buy or Sell trade ideas are published daily prior to the European market open, with a specified trigger level, 2 target levels, a stop loss level and an analyst confidence level.

If stop or target levels are not reached then the traded price at 21:00hrs (UK time), or in the case of Asian/Pacific ideas 16:00 hrs (UK time) the following day, will be used as a closing level for performance analysis. Prices may differ compared to your own online broker or brokerage account.

All our trading is based on Technical Analysis principles though many of the techniques we use were developed in house and form part of a bespoke online indicator.

We publish our performance to allow for comparison to Autochartist and Trading Central.

Short-Term Trading Ideas and MT4 Financial Signals

For the short-term trader, Signal Centre publish trade ideas that have a longer projected time scale.

These reports are sent directly by email, or through MT4, with a specified trigger level, 2 target levels, a stop loss level and an analyst confidence level. Although a target and stop loss level are published in the idea, these can be adjusted as directed in live updates.

The performance report is based on the opening level and either the stop, 1st target or closing price.

Although a target and stop loss level are published in the idea, these can be adjusted as directed in live updates.

For performance purposes, profit is calculated to the 1st target only.

Our History

Trading Signals

We were founded in 2007 as an independent research firm to serve professional clients’ central need for trading signals. The focus was providing solid technical based trade ideas to Fund managers, hedge funds and central banks. The company diversified into investment management in 2012 and out of this PIA-First (Signal Centre) was created to continue the analytic research. After a management buy-out in 2013, we expanded our reach into the trading platform arena and the growth continued.

Over the years, Signal Centre has been recognised amongst its peers as a leading provider of technical analysis-based trade idea provision with numerous awards and accomplishments. In 2015 a multi-lingual CMS system was designed and developed to further enhance the global reach.

FCA Regulated

2018 was an important year in the development of the firm. We successfully applied for direct authorisation and to be FCA regulated. More recently, Joe Neighbour was invited to join the management team bringing a wealth of experience and expertise in portfolio management. A full re-branding led to the creation of the Signal Centre brand, maintaining the vision of the senior management team, to become a global leader and central place for trading analysis & trade idea provision.

Our Vision

We strive to be a global market leader in our field with a focus on quality research, timely and accurate reports combined with the latest advancements in online trading technology.
