Worlds first artificial intelligence ETF makes its investors nervous

This article I just found on Bloomberg entitled ‘World’s First AI-Run Global ETF Makes Its Own Managers Nervous’. This ETF is put out by a company called Horizons out of Toronto, Canada. And they’re being listed on the TSX Bourse.

As a result, my opinion on machine learning is quite vague right now. When I look at how I felt with Python about three years ago, I sort of questioned it, but here I am now programming with it as my primary language. So, I’m kind of on board with cryptocurrency and Bitcoin. If you’ve not been watching the rise of Bitcoin, it’s quite incredible. I really don’t think there is any other asset out there in history that has risen that much. In just two weeks it’s gone from $5,000 to $7,000, it’s pretty incredible.

But back to this artificial intelligence, and/or machine learning, and/or deep learning topic, what I find very fascinating is I do think there is enormous potential with this application in algorithm /automated trading. As it stands right now, AI is not quite there to take over the entire workflow of automated trading. I do believe that there are certain types of frameworks that you can apply in let’s say, applying maybe stop losses, or doing risk management. I firmly believe that there is application uses for that without a doubt. In fact, when I look at my quantitative techniques, I am now using my portfolio optimizer to do just that quant-based. But I’m also using fundamental and technical analysis for various reasons.

So, at the end of the day, where I do think machine learning will come into play is when it needs to be used under certain conditions. I would not give machine learning or artificial intelligence the entire enchilada of running a trading operation, but I would definitely have no problems with it running certain functions within the operation. Just my thoughts on that, let me know what you think.

Also, I just wanted to mention about my Telegram private messenger group, which will be massively pruned tonight. It will be pretty well reduced to about five high quality trading personalities I guess you could call it, where everybody’s learning. And as a result, more confidential information will be shared among us, instead of having the tire kickers and those that lurk in the group. As a result, the dead weight will be removed in coming hours.

What does that mean for you? Well, it means that I’ll be able to implement smarter trading technology and ideas into my own implementations. For instance, one that just was learned last night on how to find highly liquid trading pairs or currency pairs was learned. I might reveal those some time in a video or private video for my Quant Analytic members. But for now, I’m not gonna say anything. And moving forward, I will be not publicly talking about what is discussed in this telegram private chat group. In actual fact, it reminds me and puts me at the same level of learning from the legendary ‘London Quant’ a few years ago. So if you’ve been following me for a while, you know exactly what I mean.

Lastly, I just wanted to mention that I have my entire three-set course available with an annual membership for my Quant Elite, it’s pretty well all the same access, all for the price of a measly $800, which will take you up for one year. I’m actually thinking of some other exclusive bonuses as well down the line, but as it stands, this is the best deal I can give you. So if you’re interested, just head on over to my product page at Quantlabs.net. All right, hopefully you have a good trading day, and I will report back in the next few hours on my testing.

Secret The ETF Companies Don’t Want You to Know

 

Basically you time certain sectors vs with ones with or without dividends

love it because, as I’ll demonstrate in a moment, it’s caused plenty of stocks to become mispriced, creating opportunities for active stock pickers who do their homework.

ETF outperform hedge fund and S&P 500 according to Vanguard founder

ETF outperform hedge fund and S&P 500 according to Vanguard founder

A while ago I posted this video below. I wanted to add the following articles that came out to prove that ETFs are the way of the future for trading individuals. No more betting with individual stocks or underperforming alternative funds.

“There is deep disenchantment with hedge funds among large investors. People have been paying extremely high fees for very poor performance — performance even a zero fee wouldn’t justify….

The latest figures, which were compiled for FTfm by ETFGI, the consultancy, capture investors’ waning interest in hedge funds. Pension funds in US states including Illinois, New York, Kentucky and Rhode Island, have eliminated or reduced their holdings. The largest US public pension fund, Calpers, announced in 2014 that it was withdrawing entirely after concluding hedge funds were too expensive and complex.

“Trade union trustees on the boards of public pension plans on both sides of the Atlantic have been pushing for ETFs while stock markets have set record highs. They believe that unless and until hedge funds regain their mojo, ETFs are a better, simpler and cheaper alternative.”

Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor and an outspoken critic of fund managers who profit from high fees at the expense of their clients, bet in 2007 that a Vanguard S&P 500 index fund would beat five funds of hedge funds selected by Protégé Partners, an investment company, over the next 10 years.

Also remember that Vanguard is driven by HFT technology as well

The best part of this while argument are there are morons in these industry who think otherwise. It is time they get it together to fully understand small alternative funds either need tp perform or will be shutdown as more institutional funding will go towards performing ETF firms like Vanguard and Blackrock.

Dutch speed trader did not lost money in 2 year with ETF

Dutch speed trader has not lost money in 2 year with ETF

Oh look another successful HFT story. Are you getting tired of these over the last few week? I find it interesting in how Bloomberg is reporting these so frequently. This just shows the powerful potential of this technology which is rapidly changing.

Here is the Bloomberg story about this Dutch high speed trader

Here is an alert!

Today is a day of flurries around here at Quantlabs.net The website will be going through a makeover which is part of our phase for the new Quant Analytics service. Everything is going to a professional and premium level as I have been hinting in previous videos. You can also expect some higher quality training videos.

As a result, we are counting the last few days of the Quant Elite membership public access. As explained in the video below, there will be three standalone courses that will be independent which will be worth $500 apiece. If you join the Elite now you’ll be able to get them all for a low monthly plan of only 97 bucks. As I have kept saying, it is now or never to take advantage of this last opportunity of a deal that could enhance and secure your potential automate trading business.

People ask, what will happen to the current Elite membership?

It will remain active until we see the maturity of the Analytics service over the next few weeks to months. So in the meantime, you could use the full benefit of the Elite and roll over into the new Analytics Service as it matures.

More details you may have missed yesterday

Intro preview to new quant future options courses and Python infrastructure

I just posted this video on how I will be removing the PUBLIC ACCESS from my Quant ELITE membership the next few days to weeks. This will be the last of my ‘highly valuable’ deals before I go premium in coming weeks for my new Analytics service.
See my video here.

If you want to take advantage of the last combined courses I have for a low monthly fee before they total $1600 in a few weeks.
