Irving, TX (PRWEB) September 23, 2008 -- NetPicks recently announced the launch of its new DAX futures live signal service. The service enables clients to trade the German DAX futures market alongside a skilled coach in a live trading room.

"The DAX service is an incredible addition to the NetPicks lineup," said Shane Fry, NetPicks DAX Futures live trading analyst. "It gives our clients access to the much sought-after German market and really rounds our investment offerings nicely."

In addition to the DAX Futures service, NetPicks operates Forex and e-Mini Futures Live Signal Services. The trading systems offered by NetPicks are Internet-based and easy to use, Fry said.

"For the launch of our DAX Futures service, we are offering a free two-week trial to let our clients see the service for themselves and decide if DAX is right for their investment needs," Fry said. "We are confident clients will enjoy the service."

Fry said NetPicks' trading systems are comprehensive and designed to meet client needs efficiently and effectively. The DAX Futures system, for example, is responsive to meet the needs of clients in both the European and North American markets.

"Five days a week, we call exact trade setups for customers - exact entries and targets, and manage every trade until completion," he said. "We even do this twice per day - once during the European market hours and once during the U.S. market hours - so no matter where clients are in the world, they can now trade the DAX. We even do all the analysis and show our clients exactly where and why a trade should be taken."

Although new to the NetPicks' lineup of trading systems, DAX Futures has already proven popular and successful.

"Since June 1, 2008, we've called over 552 points of profit live," said Fry. "That's worth over $20,000.00 USD. All clients do is just execute the trades and have their brokerage commission costs. In August, the European session had 68 percent winners, nearly $5,000 per contract with most trading sessions ended positive. The U.S. session, assuming everyday showed 66 percent winners, enjoyed over $8,000 per contract and a profit factor of 4.17."

As it is with NetPicks' Forex trading system, the DAX service is designed to be as easy for clients to use as possible.

"Our goal is to always get in, get out and be done," said Fry. "We try to trade as quickly and intelligently as possible - get our gains and go on with our day."
