Artificial intelligence has been making an extraordinary impact across all investment markets. Today we will explore three areas in which computer trading strategies are making a huge impact: stock option scanners, futures systems and crypto currencies. Get a strong overview of how AI is implemented with three actual case studies. Pro-Trader scanner: developed in the legendary Citibank innovation lab in Israel, this advanced software utilizes historical data to map out high odds trades based on statistical analysis. The scanner was incubated with the bank and is in use on the trading desks of multiple global banks. Join us for a look at the features and a brief discussion with the lead developer.
Futures systems: the traditional instrument for leveraged trading and margin is a natural outlet to realize the potential of systemic trading. These often volatile and highly liquid global markets have been tested for many years by systems developers. The futures markets also provide a regulated environment through major exchanges to trade Bitcoin. Learn the risks of leverage and margin that are a part of these markets with 22-year Commodity Principal.
Bitcoin update: compare the new exchange traded instrument to the far-flung Cryptocurrency universe. Is there a way to participate and reduce risk? Can you hedge the dangers? Are there arbitrage opportunities or spread trades for relational discrepancies? Can we identify evaluation skews? How are those third party systems bring touted online doing? PLEASE BE AWARE THAT TRADING STOCKS, FUTURES, AND OPTIONS INVOLVES SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL INVESTORS. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THE CALCULATIONS PROVIDED IN THE OPTION RANGER PORTION ARE BASED ON INTRINSIC (IN THE MONEY) PREMIUM VALUES. SUCH VALUES APPLY TO EXPIRATION ONLY AS THEY MAKE NO INPUT FOR TIME (VOLATILITY) PREMIUM. THE TOOL IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE THE USER WITH AN INITIAL ASSESSMENT OF AN OPTION TRADE BASED ON OBJECTIVE INPUTS, WITH A NEUTRAL BASELINE FOR PROFIT / LOSS MEASURES AND FOR MARGIN RISK. THE OPTION RANGER IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A STAND-ALONE TOOL TO MAKE INVESTMENT DECISIONS. ONE SHOULD MONITOR PREMIUM VALUES CLOSELY FOR VOLATILITY CHANGES AND TIME EROSION. CHECK WITH A QUALIFIED FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL AND REVIEW ALL APPLICABLE DISCLOSURES BEFORE YOU TRADE.
