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.

Cohen backed Quantopian starts fund for external investors

This could be pure genius if Mr. Stephen Cohen would decide to use Quantopian as a front to help fund his operation with external capital. Apparent his new Point 72 is not growing as fast as he would like so Quantopian could be a fantastic proxy for his investments. I could be wrong as well.

 

Here is that article I speak of

 

As I slightly hinted in an email and posting, I’ll be going through an exhaustive testing phase to validate my theories of volatility in currency trading. I’m hoping to reveal some positive relationships and patterns that may be helpful to my supportive Quant Analytics members. In fact I may do an unconventional Live meet up webinar for them next week sometime. It will be very last minute to focus on these theories and results. Be aware of this coming up. Once again I’ll only be available for my Quant Analytics members only.

 

Yesterday I revealed some of my daily analysis for my Quant Analytics Lite service here’s the latest headline from today.

NZ dollar hit after party agreement and China develerages to expand GDP

Investors scared of the rise of quant trading

Investors scared of the rise of quant trading

First they can be scared b/c they fear what they don’t know

They are right. Extra leverage means extra risk in the market for extra juicing. Maybe I should find a new line of work

It seems algos are programmed with a bias to buy. Individual stocks have risen to ludicrous levels that leave rational humans scratching their heads. But since everything always goes up, and even small dips are big buying opportunities for these algos, machine learning teaches algos precisely that, and it becomes a self-propagating machine, until something trips a limit somewhere.

And suddenly things happen that weren’t part of the scenario. To deal with it, the machines, perhaps in lockstep, revert to a part of the code that says “sell.” Plunging markets trigger more sell signals, and so on. And in this paroxysm of selling by the machines, there might not be enough human traders left—they’ve been sent to pasture years ago—to jump in and buy. Sure, it cannot happen, we’re told. Until it does happen.

It looks like value investing is back for 2017

Macquarie goes on to say value investing is still performing well in 2017, despite fading slightly from last year’s outperformance. The value trade involves selecting stocks that are trading for less than their intrinsic values.
