Today, I have some exciting personal news to announce which will certainly affect this blog to some degree. Four months ago I was fortunate enough to meet a group of extremely talented and motivated FX traders that have devised an algorithmic trading model that is truly unique in concept and performance. Due to their success in the past few years, they are now expanding and offering a fund vehicle on top of their managed accounts. Recently, I was asked to add my expertise to the mix and contribute in risk management and product development. As the firm is based in Switzerland and operates out of Switzerland, Austria and the UK, it is time to pack my bags and find my pass port. Needless to say, I will be rather busy but will try to keep this blog open and going. If you would like to follow our progress please visit us at http://www.akribia.ch
Finally, I would like to share a video that explains how High Frequency Trading has conquered the financial markets and after watching it you may understand better why I seek to find alpha in traditional market movement patterns over nanosecond technology that has extremely short life cycles yet high development costs.
