What if we could quantify the sentiment of market participants to improve our market timing and keep us on the right side of the market? In this lively and thought provoking presentation, Alan will seek to demonstrate how the term structure of volatility futures can be used as leading indicator to determine the future direction of the stock market with high accuracy. In a real world example, he’ll step through the process of using this input as the basis for a trading strategy. With the management of risk a key part of any strategy, Alan will apply a number of filters and controls and also look at how intermarket measurements can be used as a reliable method to determine risk in the overall stock market. Alan will also illustrate how the basis of the resulting strategy can be applied to multiple markets to increase diversity and maximise profit opportunity. Full quantitative results and metrics will be shown throughout. This use of sentiment and intermarket analysis as quantitative inputs will be sure to whet the appetite of practitioners who are otherwise predominately focused on price-based models.
