40 sec read

Here is a real life example from Gary Chan sharing the way he started running Algorithmic Pair Trading strategies. Its a pretty old video taken from NYC Algorithmic Trading Meetup. It is a must watch if you are algo trading enthusiast and willing to start your game.

Gary Chan gave keynote talk – in this clip he explains his motivation for sharing his work in a public meetup forum:

In this video Gary chan points out the examples he used for what his definitions of Easy vs. Hard are. Spoiler alert: Getting into Harvard is hard. Opening a successful restaurant is hard. Algorithmic trading is (by comparison) easy.

  1. Hai Rajandran

    Can you please tell how much accuracy we can expect from super trend indicator

    1. 42 out of 100 trades will be profitable in case of nifty/bank nifty in 5min timeframe and the strategy winning ratio varies from timeframe to timeframe and scrip to different scrip

  2. Hi Rajandran Sir, Is it possible to configure Amibroker with profitable strategies of buy / sell signals supported by free RTD from NEST TRADER and an Algo Plugin. If so, how much it would cost? I am using NESTTRADER platform. It would be still better if F & Os are included in the watch list for trading purpose.
