Presented to VTAD Stuttgart Chapter.  

Presented at IFTA 2015 Tokyo. Where do quantitative methods fit in the technical analysis landscape?  Quantitative methods need facility with computing, computational processes, probability theory, statistics and machine learning.   In skilled hands, technical analysis and quantitative methods can build excellent trading systems. The quantitative process allows testing and establishing the risk and reward profile before commitment.  Ongoing checks can then track the ?health? of a system so it can be ?tuned? to the market over time. The process aims to use the ?scientific method?, allowing evidence based decisions. Should we ignore its growing popularity?

Melbourne Quant One Day Seminar: Robert will introduce the concept and principles behind System or Quant Trading.

Quantitative methods used to construct trading systems use good technical analysis principles along with computers, computational processes, probability theory and statistics to develop and test trading systems before real money is risked. They then monitor the ?health? of a system during use so it can be ?tuned? to the market over time. The ?scientific method? is adopted and applied. Systems designed with this approach are likely to be more successful. The principles discussed will help every trader. If you wish to make use of quantitative methods this will be a good introduction.
