STA Monthly Meeting February 2008
Living in a fast paced world filled with a myriad of investment opportunities buried beneath a sea of market noise, news, data and other perilous distractions, getting to the pearls can be a real challenge. Relying on your brain to digest and process large amounts of information in a limited amount of time comes at its own perils, owing to cognitive impediments that make us vulnerable to information overload.
Revealing some of the biases exhibited by investors, Rashpal will explain the benefits of simple quantitative techniques in arriving at the answer, and go as far as revealing one simple, backtested system that is born out of the concept of trends.
Rashpal graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science with a first class degree in Actuarial Science. He has been working as an asset allocation analyst at Rathbone Brothers, formerly assistant to Robin Griffiths (before his retirement in December 2007) and specialises in the use of quantitative techniques in the analysis of global markets with particular emphasis on building models for system trading and investment purposes.

The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats. To overcome this challenge and construct sustainable, scalable and reproducible strategies in a quantitative manner, the Smart Money Framework was developed by the quants in the 1960s. With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
