Separating Positions from Allocations

Most trading models I see are missing an important concept. It’s not a terribly difficult concept, but it is an important one. It’s not at all strange that most traders, in particular on the retail side, are missing this point. Most trading books skip over it. Most books gloss over it, or just don’t mention it at all. My books ...

Norgate Data for RightEdge Review

I’ve written in the past about how RightEdge is one of the best simulation platforms on the market. The only issue with RightEdge is that it can be a little tricky to get started. If you’re not comfortable with programming, it’s not that easy to get your data hooked up so you can start modelling. Perhaps the new RightEdge plugin for ...

You can’t beat all the chimps

It is a long established fact that a reasonably well behaved chimp throwing darts at a list of stocks can outperform most professional asset managers. While there would be obvious advantages with hiring chimps over hedge fund traders, such as lower salaries and better manners, there are also a few practical obstacles to such hiring practices.

How to make proper equity simulations on a budget – Part 2 Software

Your choice of simulation software can have a greater impact than you may think. Most simulation platforms that are priced within reach for hobby traders and even smaller asset managers are quite frankly junk. If you start modeling in those environments, you will most likely either need to throw it all out and start over later, or accept massive error factors. ...

How to make proper equity simulations on a budget – Part 1 Data

Simulating an equity strategy is difficult. Much more so than simulating a futures strategy. There’s a lot more moving parts to care about. Much more complexity. All too often, I see articles and books that just skipped the difficult parts. Either they didn’t understand it, or they hoped it wouldn’t matter. It does. When I set out to write Stocks ...

Why I prefer RightEdge for strategy modeling

Choosing a good platform for strategy modeling, simulations and signal generation is critical. The bleak reality is that most back testing software is horribly bad. They are geared towards consumers with limited knowledge and experience and they cater to what your average get-rich-quick technical analysis guru claims that you need. I’m often asked for my views on simulation platforms, and in ...
