What makes us so different
We are not consultants, we are Traders
The Smart Money Corporation – SMC – was founded as an answer for the wish of thousands of investors around the world to benefit from Vicktor Flagenhein’s expertise.
SMC is definitely different from other investment businesses. Unlike other financial institutions, we do not trade as a counterpart to our partners in our trades.
We also do not provide trading signals. If you’re considering clicking your own account using signals from consulting firms, paying U$ 200.00 (two hundred dollars) a month, you will not be doing business with us.
Our business is trading our own capital and extending the same opportunities to our partners. Any trade in our third party accounts is exactly the same performed in our own accounts. We do not put ourselves in our partners’ places. We are exactly in the same places.
Trading third party capital has become a natural development, following the stream that first came to place with a methodology that it’s proving itself a winner for over 20 years, then evolved to the automated trading platform that makes what was once unthinkable a reality.
We do not have clients, we have partners
SMC is not looking for ordinary clients. We aim at establishing solid partnerships with investors and serious institutions, for our mutual benefit, through consistent and robust trades.
We welcome investors/traders with accounts in ECN’s (read more) or who are ready to open one, and that wish to trade amounts over U$ 1,000,000.00 (one million dollars).
We are not in a hurry to establish new partnerships
We also know that smart people are careful when deciding. We are aware that the most important aspect of success are the results.
That’s why we provide our prospect partners real time signals (free of charge) for 30 days. See for yourself, they speak for themselves (see trading charts).
As a teaser, after these 30 days, you will be invited to trade with us for 3 months a test account U$ 50,000.00 (fifty thousand dollars).
After the trial period, the partnership is consolidated through a minimum deposit of U$ 1,000,000.00 (one million dollars) in your trading account.
In order to avoid amateurs, we hold high standards for acceptance. If you are interested in a partnership with us, please fill out the application form and we will get in touch with you for the procedures (application form).
The methodology designed by Vicktor Flagënhein and later automated by SMC uses objective criteria to assess the fundamentals of the global economy and determine the best timing for a decision to buy, sell, hold or close a trade.
We don’t predict the direction and movement of a currency pair, although we know precisely what to do in the face of every action and reaction of the market.
This methodology has proven highly profitable for over 20 years, and was validated by rigorous scientific and statistical testing, for stocks, commodities, futures, options and currency. See for yourself (trading chart or table).
We trade the Forex (read more). This market deals about 4 trillion dollars a day, being the market with the biggest liquidity in the world.
This is the perfect scenario for the VF Automate (read more), which was designed to deal huge figures. We are not talking about 1M (one million dollars) trades. We are talking about 100M, 200M, 500M clicked in less than 2 milliseconds (0,002s).
All of our trades are done in an ECN platform (read more). This means that we operate in the very core of the interbank market, dealing directly with the price makers and the biggest players on the market, such as Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, Citibank, UBS, Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas e Nomura.
This structure enables us to achieve smaller spreads, better quotes, higher liquidity and depth (read more) for our trades.
Counter intuitively, world crisis doesn’t affect the quality or the profitability of our trades. On the contrary, our specialty is making money in periods of crisis.
We trade at both ends, buy/sell — sell/buy (read more), so volatility and liquidity are essential elements for our trades.
Besides, we do not gamble or trade outside our strategy. If we wouldn’t put 1 million on a trade, we won’t put a penny. On the other hand, when we see an opportunity, we do not hesitate in investing heavily. We are selectively aggressive.
All gathering, analysis, and processing of data, as well as the execution of trades in the market are done via an automated system. That eliminates the human error.
We keep our personal and our partners’ information in secrecy. The choice for the low profile is one of our strategic tools for the success of our trades.
There is a history of Liquidity Provider Banks, in order to avoid eventual losses, to boycott high volume trades over U$ 100,000,000.00 (one hundred million dollars) from successful traders.
Anonymity is then essential to broaden the limits of liquidity and depth of our trades.
