Porch Paint That Doesn't Fade in the Sun

I need to know the best paint to put on a back porch, that although covered gets sun on the steps. The enamel we have used in the past tends to lose it's luster after a year or two. We like the high gloss black green. Any suggestions?

We were told to use deck stain. I had painted the back porch with outdoor paint, and it's almost all gone after just one year! Deck stain comes in various colors; I don't know if there's such a thing as high-gloss deck stain, but at least you won't have to keep painting your porch as often. I know that's what we're going to use this year.

One thing, shiny paint will be very slippery when wet or has snow or ice on it. My deck was left natural and I love the silver grey color of aged wood.
