Core competence : Trading
Our core competence and operational focus is trading the markets, being trade centered and performance oriented.
We aim to identify trading opportunities, what we call Trading Vectors, well before the market moves, employing a multi-dimensional approach with the “Vector” family of algorithms to determine the current market state and decide the corresponding trading strategy.
Vector algorithms monitor the markets 24/5 to identify changes in the main parameters of market behavior, providing a predictive element in market opportunity. In effect, the system tracks the structural existence of a trend and determines the best way to trade.
We do not try to predict the market, rather we aim to provide tools that result to trading ideas that capitalize on market opportunities.
How we trade
Low risk “targeted” trading is employed, with low , pre-set risk of capital while aiming at pre-determined profit targets, using protective stops in every trade. In effect, the portfolios produced are low volatility.
Quantitative models are mainly based on facts and less based on expectations, with very strict risk control.
Risk control is an inherent component for sustainable performance.
