If what you want to do is sell a system to the public, then running small ads in trade magazines, online sales, the classifieds in back of the Star and the infomercials or spot commercials I previously mentioned are the thing to do. You'd want to patent the system, which actually means having an ownership not on the indicators (unless they're proprietary), but on how the whole method you created integrates together and works. Of course, patents don't mean squat if someone takes your method and sells it and you don't have the money to see a lawsuit or several lawsuits succesfully through to completion. Especially so if the competition comes from overseas. Showing your method to prospective investors/backers doesn't mean revealing the method, although it could need that. But an confidentiality agreement would be in order before proceeding. Sometimes, confidentiality agreements can seem to be breached when the other party comes to market with a similar product, but it may turn out they had something close to mind as your method all along. You'd have to prove they didn't and that what they came out with was truly yours. If you have a system that you'd rather trade but don't have the capital, trade it for a good term and with the results, see if you can get a small circle of friends to finance the kitty for trading, set up as an investment club, where you all agree to adhere to the method's signals.
