Use Diversification to Reduce Risk
There’s a common saying that one should not put all their eggs into one basket. This holds true for the markets as well. Diversification helps reduce your investment risk and TradersStudio Multicore helps you trade on large portfolios in minimal amounts of time. One of the issues facing traders in the past was that backtesting a well-diversified portfolio was a challenge. It was time consuming to run calculations that would span many, many years on hundreds of markets, stocks, ETFs, etc. The newest version of TradersStudio supports parallel processing meaning that calculations are performed quicker than ever. Murray Ruggiero, Chief Systems Designer for a fund holding over $200 million in assets and designer of TradersStudio, has extensively used the latest version to backtest his systems. Like many of his clients, Murray has reported speed increases of 10x or more on the right hardware. Indeed, systems that used to take days to test (say, 80 hours, for example) can now be run in less than a day.
Simply put, the latest version of TradersStudio can let you test larger portfolios enabling you to diversify your strategies. Using advanced techniques such as equity curve feedback, you can design your strategies to span more markets and make smarter choices about when to enter and exit the trade. This will allow your system to have more resiliency so that if one component of it stops working, the other aspects of the system might still be able to work as designed.
TradersStudio Is Accurate, Which Also Reduces Risk
It’s important to note that TradersStudio is the most accurate backtesting platform available. The quality of data greatly affects the results as well as how the platform uses it. TradersStudio combined with CSI Data is extremely accurate as it uses split-adjusted, dividend-adjusted, and unadjusted data to ensure that the results of a system are as reliable as possible. Having historical results that you can trust lets you make better informed decisions about which strategies to run and which ones to avoid. This will greatly reduce the risk of choosing a system that, although it looks good on paper, may not trade well in the real world.
