I started using VantagePoint software about two months ago. I back tested the program first trying different options on the chart. After that I started paper trading to see how it would do real time. From the middle of June to the middle of July, I am up in the excess of $18,000.00. The first of July I started trading for real. I am not as aggressive with real money, so from the first of July to the middle of July I am only up just over $2000.00. This looks like it will continue to give consistent results.
