The Basics of Algorithmic Trading
Algorithmic Trading, also known as Quant Trading is a trading style which utilizes market prediction algorithms in order to find potential trades. There are various sub categories of algorithmic trading to include High Frequency Trading (HFT), Statistical Arbitrage and Market Prediction Analysis. At AlgorithmicTrading.net, we focus on developing automated trading systems that place swing, day and options trades in order to take advantage of various market inefficiencies.
Algorithmic Trading Example
Consider Using One of Our Algorithmic Trading Systems
We offer multiple automated trading strategies that have passed our strict criteria for releasing to the public. In addition, we have assembled algorithmic trading systems that utilize various combinations of the trading algorithms offered. Our flag ship automated futures trading system, trades all seven quantitative trading algos in an attempt to better diversify your auto trading account. Our algorithmic trading software utilizes finite state machines & pattern recognition to create a black box trading solution for use with an auto-execution broker or stand alone utilizing the tradestation platform.

The following data is based on back-tested data from compiled tradestation reports. This data does not include the “walk-forward” results that have been seen since the trading algorithms were released to the public. Because it is back-tested data, it is subject to certain limitations per CFTC RULE 4.41 (below).
|S&P Crusher *||Bearish Trader *||ES/TY Futures *||The Day Trader|
|Avg P/L Yr||$26,193||$11,348||$17,508||$3,854|
|% Month Win||76.58%||72.78%||71.52%||60.51%|

CFTC RULE 4.41: Results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown. * Options back-testing has numerous limitations due to unknowns regarding premium collected during live automated trading. In addition, Weekly Options on the S&P 500 Emini Futures (ES) were not available to trade for the entire backtested period. ** Actual losses could be greater than what is shown. Trade to trade drawdowns are based on back-testing which has limitations.
Multiple Trading Algorithms Are Traded As Part of A Larger Algorithmic Trading System
Each algorithmic trading strategy offered has various strengths and weaknesses. Their strengths and weaknesses are identified based on three potential market states: Strong Up, Sideways & Down moving markets. The iron condor trading strategy outperforms in sideways and up moving markets, while the treasury note algorithm excels in downward moving markets. Based on the back-testing, the momentum algorithm is expected to perform well during up moving markets. Checkout the following collection of videos, where each trading algorithm offered is reviewed by our lead developer. The strengths of each trading algo is reviewed along with it’s weaknesses.
Multiple Types of Trading Strategies Are Used in Our Automated Trading Software
Day trades are entered & exited the same day, while swing trades will take a longer term trade based on expectations for the S&P 500 to trend higher or lower in the intermediate term. Options trades are placed on the S&P 500 Weekly options on futures, typically entering on a Monday and holding until Friday’s expiration.
Swing Trading Algorithms
Momentum Swing Trading Algorithm
The Momentum Swing Trading Strategy places swing trades on the Emini S&P Futures, taking advantage of market conditions that suggest an intermediate term move higher. This trading algorithm is used in two trading systems we offer: The S&P Crusher v2 & ES/TY Futures.
Ten Year Treasury Note Algorithm
The Treasury Note (TY) Trading Strategy places swing trades on the Ten Year Note (TY). Since the TY typically moves inverse to the broader markets, this strategy creates a swing trade that is similar to shorting the S&P 500. This T-Note algo has positive expectations for down moving market conditions. This package is traded in three autotrading systems we offer: The S&P Crusher v2 , ES/TY Futures & The Bearish Trader.
Day Trading Algorithms
Day Trading Short Algorithm
The Short Day Trading Strategy places day trades on the Emini S&P Futures when the market shows weakness in the morning (prefers a large gap down). This day trading strategy is traded in all four trading systems we currently offer.
Breakout Day Trading Algorithm
The Breakout Day Trading Strategy places day trades on the Emini-S&P Futures when the market shows strength in the morning. This strategy is traded in three trading systems: The S&P Crusher v2 , ES/TY Futures & The Day Trader.
Morning Gap Day Trading Algorithm
The Morning Gap Day Trading Strategy places short day trades on the Emini S&P Futures when the market has a large gap up, followed by a short period of weakness. This trading strategy is traded in all four trading systems we offer.
Options Trading Algorithms
The following options trading algorithms collect premium on the S&P 500 Emini Weekly Options (ES). They are used in multiple trading systems we offer to take advantage of sideways, down & up moving market conditions. One benefit to trading options with our algos is that they are supported in an automated trading environment using one of the auto-execution brokers.
Iron Condor Options Trading Algorithm
The Iron Condor Trading Options Trading Strategy is perfect for the individual who wants a higher back-tested per trade win rate or who simply wants to collect premium on the S&P 500 Emini Futures by selling Iron Condors. When our algorithms expect a sideways or upward drifting market condition, this system will create an Iron Condor trade. This strategy is used in one of our Trading Systems: The S&P Crusher
Covered Calls Options Algorithm
The Covered Call Options Trading Strategy sells out of money covered calls against the momentum algorithms Long ES swing trades, to collect premium and help minimize losses should the market move against our momentum algorithm position. When traded with the Momentum Swing Trading Algorithm- as is the case in the S&P Crusher & ES/TY Futures Trading Systems, this creates a covered call position. When traded in the Bearish Trader Trading System, the calls are sold without being covered and are therefore naked short. In both cases – as a stand along algorithm – it performs well in sideways and down moving market conditions. This options strategy is used in three of our trading systems: The S&P Crusher, ES/TY Futures & The Bearish Trader
While each of these trading strategies can be traded stand alone, they are best traded in a broader collection of trading algorithms – as seen in one of our Automated Trading Systems such as the S&P Crusher.

What Separates Algorithmic Trading From Other Technical Trading Techniques?
These days, it seems like everyone has an opinion on Technical Trading techniques. Head & Shoulders patterns, MACD Bullish Crosses, VWAP Divergences, the list goes on and on. In these video blogs, our lead design engineer analyzes a few examples of trading strategies found online. He takes their Trading Tips, codes it up and runs a simple back-test to see how effective they really are. After analyzing their initial results, he optimizes the code to see if a quantitative approach to trading can improve the initial findings. If you are new to algorithmic trading, these video blogs will be quite interesting. Our designer utilizes finite state machines to code up these basic trading tips. How does Algorithmic Trading differ from traditional technical trading? Simply put, Algorithmic Trading requires precision and gives a window into an algorithms potential based on back-testing which does have limitations.
