6.40 – 8.00pm – Chris Meakin: Mechanical Trading Interactive Workshop - Part 1

Chris Meakin has proposed a creative idea to introduce non-mechanical traders to the world of mechanical trading. In Part 1, Chris will elicit trading ideas from workshop participants to formulate a system to be coded and traded.

During the workshop, all codable ideas using EOD, ASX, Long only data, will be discussed by participants. When agreement on parameters is reached, Chris will code the ideas, and in Part 2 at our meeting in June will backtest the code, tweak the parameters and present the results.

Our last in person meeting in April was a great success, with no reported cases of Covid. Chris is particularly interested in including currently non-mechanical traders and those new to trading in general.

A list of the variables to consider will be sent to those enrolling. The workshop is a great opportunity to transfer ideas from mechanical trading to your current trading methodology or  begin the mechanical trading journey, even if it seemed too complex before.

The workshop will not be recorded or streamed online.

Chris Meakin: Chris Meakin has been a member of ATAA since 2005, a one-time Canberra chapter committee member and National Board member, and the convenor of a Canberra-based (and collegial) mechanical trading special interest group since Jan 2019.
