More Quantopian alt hedge fund announcements

Another Quantopian like alternative hedge fund approach looking for ‘suckers’ (I mean strategists) to pony up their trading ideas


New York, NY, May 15, 2017 – Momenta Capital Management LLC (MCM), a Greenwich, Connecticut global macro investment advisor, today announced an agreement with the Algorithmic Traders Association (ATA) to establish the new Global Strategies Platform (GSP).

Under the terms of the agreement, qualified members of the ATA’s community of emerging systematic managers can take advantage of the opportunity to be onboarded to the GSP as part of a new and diversified macro portfolio. The GSP macro portfolio will be available for investment by qualified institutional investors seeking unique Alpha-generating strategies.

The GSP is currently accepting applications from emerging systematic managers and authors of systematic trading strategies, apply to join the GSP here: http://www.atassn.com/capital

The GSP Portfolio has the potential to accelerate managers’ institutional-level asset bases by exploring the inherent knowledge and expertise of a massive talent pool. MCM and ATA will partner with talented managers who have drafted and tested investment strategies that meet the high implementation and returns benchmarks.

“Institutional Investors understand that intelligently designed and executed ideas are often developed by emerging managers or strategists. These ideas, coupled with an efficient execution platform and disciplined risk management, form the basis for delivering favorable and consistent risk-adjusted returns in today’s markets.”

– Nick Vasserman, CIO of Momenta Capital Management, LLC.

Turn off the news & economic announcements

Turn off the news & economic announcements

Has anyone ever tried this? To trade purely on price action ?
No news, no announcements, no opinion,



I trade like this, but you still need to look at the BIG news!



Every day… never look at news at all… my forecasting accuracy raised no end…

As John Kenneth Galbraith once said:
Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists.
The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable.
