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…

Coensio Algo-Trading Group (open forum)

After many years of EA coding for other traders (also for many of you) I think, I have seen it ALL. I have seen traders creating thier EA’s and strategies based only on one chart screenshot with only few trades on it or just because they have read something on the web. Obviously this approach doesn’t work! So the only way to go is to start creating strategy-portfolio’s using auto-generation supported by machine learning platforms like StrategyQuant. Read more…

#1 reason traders fail in auto-trading

The number one reason traders fail in their auto-trading is due to lack of proper monitoring of their trading systems. Algo-trading is all about being able to find a needle in a haystack. If you are running 50 systems on your MT4 account, processing of statistical data can become very overwhelming. CoensioMT4Charts tool generates beautiful graphs and a clear overview of all system statistics, directly on your local MT4 platform. Read more…

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.

See how to trade news events with profit

Recently I was investigating the possibilities of trading the market during high impact news releases.

In this blog you will learn:
  • How to trade during the news events and do it properly
  • How to use statistical advantage to trade news (no fundamental background required)
  • How to avoid trading during the news events and how to automatically disable your trading account during high impact news releases.
