Data Driven Research.
Our research is primarily focussed on US equities and ETFs. This is because we feel that the best opportunities are to be found in this area. We believe that beginner traders can save themselves a lot of money by avoiding the forex markets at first since these markets are highly efficient. Having said that, there is plenty of information that will be of use to forex traders, especially in Candlestick Analysis and Mental Models. There will also be future content that focuses on forex topics.
We prefer to focus on US stocks because they are more liquid and we have considerable experience trading these markets. Historical data for US companies is also cleaner and goes back further so it’s more useful for analysis. However, we believe that our research can be well applied to other developed stock markets and we have had some success doing so.
Absolutely. Although most of our research is based on end-of-day historical data it is possible to implement our strategies on shorter timeframes than presented. Trade systems can be setup so as to provide valuable watchlists and next day signals for day traders. There are also a handful of intraday strategies on the program and full code is provided.
The data we use (Norgate Data) includes delisted securities, historical constituents and is adjusted for capital events and cash dividends. This greatly reduces the chance of survivorship-bias in the results. You can read more about the data we use on the Norgate Data website.
No, the strategies are designed in such a way that most of them can be run with free scanning tools. The rules are explained in detail so you can be sure to execute them correctly. The program also contains many trading strategies that were not developed in Amibroker. The Marwood Value Model, for example, was developed in Portfolio123 and Ranger 1.0 is built in Excel. However, we do recommend Amibroker as a software tool and having a subscription or free trial would be beneficial to the program.
There are a mix of trading systems. The shortest is a day trading strategy for stocks and the longest trades on monthly timeframes. Most of the Amibroker systems trade stocks belonging to the S&P 1500 or Russell 3000 universe. Peter’s volatility course trades volatility ETF’s and utilises options contracts. The Marwood Value Model was designed in Portfolio123 and uses their own All Fundamentals database. Please see the individual course outlines for more details.
After enrolling, you will have unlimited access to the program including updates and new content for the duration of your membership – across any and all devices you own. Subscription memberships renew at your original purchase price and can be cancelled at any time.
Absolutely. We have several courses dedicated to Amibroker including Essentials For Amibroker, Mastering Amibroker AFL, Amibroker CBT Intensive and Build a Professional Trading System. The course Hedge Fund Trading Systems also contains a detailed back-test template and you will pick up plenty of Amibroker tips and techniques, particularly related to the back-testing of trading systems.
Yes. As a member of Access All Areas you can expect regular updates and new content. That might be a new course, a full trading strategy or useful article. We are constantly working to find new trading ideas and improve the quality of the program. On occasion, we may also introduce you to new materials that are not part of Access All Areas.
When you enrol in Access All Areas you gain access to all of our existing trading strategies and courses. You’ll discover complete trading systems with code, a quantitative value investing model, a trend following course, a course on volatility, candlestick analysis, a course on trading psychology (mental models) and lots more besides. The program includes instructor support and will also be kept up to date with new material. On occasion, we may also introduce you to new materials that are not part of Access All Areas.
All of our Hedge Fund Trading systems have been back-tested using data from Norgate Data. Subscription to Norgate for US stock data is beneficial but not required as we do go through the rules in detail and provide code for non-Norgate users.
No trading strategy is guaranteed to make money as the future is never known. Anyone who claims otherwise is withholding the truth so the systems are best thought of as useful ideas for further research. They can be adapted and modified as you wish.
