9:30 – 9:45 Welcome and Introduction

9:45 – 3:25 Diversified Systematic Trend Trading by Richard Brennan and Manfred Bretterecker from ATS Trading Solutions.

ATS Trading Solutions (ATS) is a small group of trading specialists devoted to educating and informing FX and CFD retail traders about Diversified Systematic Trend Trading, as used by some of the most successful fund managers. ‘The Traders Outpost’ contains ATS’s education material on it’s website (, with the aim of assisting traders to get a ‘leg-up’ in their knowledge and understanding of the techniques of this trading style.

Diversified Systematic Trend Trading is based on the principles and practices of diversification within a comprehensive portfolio by adopting a Price Following Model as opposed to using predictive price modelling.


Richard Brennan

Richard has been involved in the fund management industry since the 1980’s in fund compliance, fund administration and fund investment activities. He was company secretary, compliance manager and financial controller of Trustees Australia Limited (TAU). In his capacity as compliance and fund management specialist for the Group, he was heavily involved in assisting investment managers to setup fund offering under a responsible entity structure and was privy to the operations that occur ‘under the hood’ of the highly successful, but very secretive, fund managers of Australia. Richard now applies these principles and practices in his proprietary trading company Grail Investment Solutions Pty Ltd. 

Manfred Bretterecker (Fred)

Fred has an engineering background but his passion lies in trading, system development, automation and programming. Fred has been developing automated trading software for many years and is fluent in many programming languages including MT4 and Visual Basic. Given his expertise in all things programmatic, Fred is the chief designer and architect of the many trading programs and tools available on The Traders Outpost.
