A black box system does not reveal the logic the system uses to trade the markets and this presents two concerns:

Firstly, futures and commodity trading is all about discipline and it’s a fact you will have more confidence in a system if understand the logic it is based upon. If you don not, you will not have the confidence to follow it through inevitable periods of losses.
