Trading the markets can be very rewarding and yet it may come with a lot of risk and are very challenging at times. Traders would usually have to spend a lot of time to acquire the knowledge and skills before trading. After that, plenty of time is still required to monitor the markets with resilient emotional discipline to not break their trading rules or even overtrading. Some may have even tried to solve this problem by purchasing fully automated trading softwares but they tend to fail over time.
Here at StreetQuants, we believe trading can be automated but still require some human touch. Trading strategy, timing and risk management are aspects where they can be coded or programmed for automation. However, there are times where unforeseen market forces may disrupt a particular strategy and that is where human intervention would play the role in keeping your profits.
