The right timing for trading and investment decisions requires a systematic strategy for entry and exit as well as for money management. On this blog we focus on algorithmic trading strategies. Algorithmic or systematic trading strategies refer to trading in clearly defined, pre-tested rules. The basis of such a trading strategy are mainly tools of technical analysis, for example patterns or indicators. With the aid of so-called back tests, recurring patterns and relationships can be identified on the basis of historical data – even before they are used in real trading. In comparison to the discretionary approach, algorithmic trading provides a decisive advantage: Instead of relying on the intuition of the trader, all decisions are based on quantitative factors that manage without the influence of emotions. Our articles give some tips about different systematic trading strategies and show how to develop as well as to improve them.
