Trading Psychology: Use Our Acclaimed Software Platform to Gain Confidence

Trading Psychology is More Important Than Your System

The personal attitude (trading psychology in our parlance) required to succeed in pair trading is the same attitude required to succeed in any other style of trading or anything else in life for that matter. Every trading system or style will have drawdowns and soft patches, that’s the nature of the trading beast. There is not one trading system we are aware of that will produce profit, day in day out all the time (except Virtu’s ultra-high-frequency algorithms co-located at exchanges at the time of their IPO).

New Year Reflection on Trading: You Know Nothing…

As a first reflection on trading to kick off the year 2020 (as part of the Western world measures the calendar), we would like to link to a blog post by Jared Dillian, and ex-Lehman Brothers trader, now writing for Real Investment Advice.

Why do we highlight his post?  We think it shows our reflection on trading – that in a world of ever changing market regimes, where objective truth (value) is non-existent – perhaps a legitimate way of approaching profit generation is to follow a trading system that seeks to profit from RELATIVE value.  The perceived value of Stock A vs.

How a Stock Trading System Costing Under $2/Day Can Help Deliver Consistent Profits

PairTrade Finder® PRO, our acclaimed pairs trading software platform, encapsulates a stock trading system refined over more than 10 years.  We employ a hedge fund trading strategy that has been empirically demonstrated to be highly profitable over multi-decades on the S&P 500 (1), delivering between 1%-5% per month over the market return over more than 10 years.

Stock trading systems are useful to keep your emotions out of your buy and sell decisions.  And the trading legends will agree:

Stock Trading Strategies: Long-Only Has Been Amazing…BUT

A Word on Stock Trading Strategies

Since Q2 2009, the most common of stock trading strategies – passive “long-only” i.e. just buy the S&P 500, would have delivered 348% or a 15.2% CAGR with dividends reinvested and without transactions costs or management fees (Source: https://dqydj.com/sp-500-return-calculator/)

But with the S&P 500 at or near a new all-time high, is the risk still weighted in your favour?  Perhaps, if you can hold 20-30 years.  But what about the next few years?

If you had held the S&P 500 from January 2008 until January 2009, the S&P 500 delivered a -35.6% return with dividends reinvested and without transactions costs or management fees (Source: https://dqydj.com/sp-500-return-calculator/)
