A SQX workflow that works!

StrategyQuant examples of strategies
Disclaimer: The presented results are based on a simulation (back-test) using accurate historical tick-by-tick data with 30%…70% OOS (out-of-sample = data not used during strategy generation). However, the positive historical results do not guarantee future continuation of the same or similar performance. SQX platform with its automated workflows is relatively new and there is no or very little live-performance data from live trading accounts.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”

Let’s look for a minute at the big picture w.r.t. system trading, which of course is making money. So how do system traders make money? Simply by using 1 simple formula. Below the only equation you need to remember in order to be successful in trading:

Money = positive expectancy * uncorrelated trading frequency.

So if that’s so simple, why we need to collaborate? Where is the ‘catch’? The big ‘catch’ is, that it takes time… a lot of time and computing power to find uncorrelated and very robust systems with a positive expectancy. That is why the only way to go is: collaboration…

Free video course: How to properly optimize trading systems

Curve-fitting is the most common mistake made by inexperienced algo-traders. This is because the MT4 based optimization is nothing else but pure curve-fitting. Curve-fitting is a fancy name for cherry-picking (or ‘falsely’ connecting the dots), where you optimize your system using all possible combinations of all parameters and you select only the best results, the highest profits or the best looking equity charts.
