STA Monthly Meeting September 2007
Systematic Trading, devoid of human emotions has become the “holy grail” of trading. Technical trading approaches can now be quantified, tested and validated using a variety of system testing packages. The theories of the old master technicians can now be tested and validated in real-time. The talk will focus upon how to produce and validate a variety of technical trading systems; then moving from theory to the practical application of system trading.
David will present “Examples of Trading Systems – A diverse collection of systematic methods”. Shaun will present “Testing Trading Systems – Finding the systems that really work”. Finally Francesco will round up the evening with, “Using Trading Systems – Putting it all together in practice”.
