Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
Do I need Norgate Premium Data to take this course?
All of the systems have been back-test using data from Norgate Premium going back to 2000. Subscription to Norgate for US stock data is beneficial but not necessarily required as we do go through the rules in detail and provide code for non-Norgate users.
Do I need Amibroker to take this course?
A registered version of Amibroker and experience with the platform is beneficial although not compulsory. You do not need Amibroker to take this course as each trading system is explained in detail.
Do the trading systems account for survivorship-bias?
Yes, the data we use (Norgate Premium Alpha Database) includes delisted securities and is adjusted for capital events and cash dividends. You can read more about the data we use at the Norgate Premium Data website.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
I trade forex, will I find this useful?
Our research is primarily focussed on US equities. This is because we feel that the best opportunities are to be found in this area. We believe that beginner traders can save themselves a lot of money by avoiding the forex markets at first since these markets are highly efficient.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
Hedge Fund Trading Systems contains proprietary trading system formulas that we do not want shared around as doing so could greatly reduce their profitability. By purchasing the program you agree not to distribute or share any of the formulas found inside. Please make sure you read the full terms of use and risk warning before signing up. If you have any doubts about the value of the service provided, then you should refrain from subscribing. If you are still unhappy with the course, please get in touch within 10 days so we can better meet your needs.
I am a day trader, will I find this useful?
We prefer not to watch charts all day so most of our research is based on daily timeframes and we use end-of-day historical data to back-test strategies. This means we can make our trading decisions any time that the market is closed and this gives us the freedom to do what we like for the rest of the day. Having said that, our fastest trading strategy has a holding period of one day and it is possible to implement some strategies on shorter timeframes.
What about UK/Australian/European/Asian stocks?
As a general rule we believe that our research can applied to other developed stock markets and we have had some success doing so. However, we prefer to focus on US stocks because they are more liquid and we have considerable experience trading these markets. Historical data for US companies is also cleaner and goes back further so it’s more useful for analysis.
What trading systems are included?
There are a mix of trading systems. The shortest has a holding period of one day and the longest trades trends on weekly timeframes. Most of the systems trade stocks belonging to the S&P 1500 or Russell 3000. Please see the promo video and curriculum outline for more details.
Are these trading systems guaranteed to make money?
The trading systems on this course have been through out-of-sample testing for validation purposes and the code has been double checked for mistakes by an independent expert with 12 years Amibroker experience. However, no trading strategy is guaranteed to make money as the future is never known. Anyone who claims otherwise is withholding the truth. The systems are best thought of as useful ideas for further research. They can be adapted and modified as you wish.
Will I learn about Amibroker on this course?
We have provided a detailed back-test template and you may pick up some tips along the way. However, the course is not principally designed to be a learning guide for using Amibroker. The focus is on the trading system ideas.
What is Access All Areas? Is this course included?
Great question. The answer is yes. You can access all my courses and save up to 50% with Marwood Research: Access All Areas. This is the best value option.
A Letter from Joe Marwood

Don't make this mistake

When I first started out building trading systems almost 10 years ago I thought I knew what I was doing. I would get some data, program some rules and then start trading whenever I got some nice results.

Soon enough, the market proved that I actually didn't have a clue. As you can imagine I experienced my share of heavy losses.

At that stage I didn't have any idea about key concepts such as out-of-sample testing, walk-forward analysis, look-ahead bias or survivorship-bias. I was using software that was not equipped to the task and I was using data that I downloaded for free.

The data was so full of holes and mistakes that attempting to test any type of strategy was pointless. But I carried on regardless because I so desperately wanted to make it work.

Eventually, I realised that something had to change and that's when I started to use Amibroker and learn how to build trading systems properly from scratch.

Now that I know about all the mistakes and what it takes to create a working strategy, it's embarrassing to think about all the things I was doing wrong when I first started!

I don't want you to make the same mistakes. Which is why I've created these strategies which you can use and learn from.

Don't make the same mistakes I made. Download these strategies and start your journey to more profitable trading.
