Presentations for the STA
STA Monthly Meeting September 2007 Technical Trading Systems: The Elements of Technical Systems and Testing
Systematic Trading, devoid of human emotions has become the “holy grail” of trading. Technical trading approaches can now be quantified, tested and validated using a variety of system testing packages. The theories of the old master technicians can now be tested and validated in real-time. The talk will focus upon how to produce and validate a variety of technical trading systems; then moving from theory to the practical application of system trading.
David will present “Examples of Trading Systems – A diverse collection of systematic methods”. Shaun will present “Testing Trading Systems – Finding the systems that really work”. Finally Francesco will round up the evening with, “Using Trading Systems – Putting it all together in practice”.
