Our program contains numerous swing trading strategies ready for you to discover. One such system trades ETFs and is called Trading For Yield.

If you don't have Amibroker, don't worry. All of our trading strategies are explained in detail and are designed to be used without need of any additional software.

Put An End To Emotional Trading

On our course Mental Models For Wall Street we show you how to take a more business-like approach to investing with the help of 20 classic mental models.

Models such as the availability bias, misconceptions of chance, the law of small numbers, feedback loops, loss aversion and cognitive dissonance can help you to take control of your emotions and become a more disciplined trader.

Frequently Asked Questions


I trade forex, will I find this useful?
Our research is primarily focussed on US equities and ETFs. 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. Having said that, there is plenty of information that will be of use to forex traders, especially in Candlestick Analysis and Mental Models. There will also be future content that focuses on forex topics.
What about UK/Australian/European/Asian stocks?
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. However, we believe that our research can be well applied to other developed stock markets and we have had some success doing so.
I am a day trader, will I find this useful?
Ranger 1.0 is a day trading strategy that is built with Excel and links up to Interactive Brokers. The rest of our research is based on daily or weekly timeframes and we use end-of-day historical data to back-test strategies. It is possible to implement the strategies on shorter timeframes than presented but we do not recommend trading too fast due to the dominance of high frequency traders.
Are the strategies accurate?
The strategies in Hedge Fund Trading Systems have been through out-of-sample testing for validation purposes and the code in Part One has been double checked for mistakes by an independent expert with 12 years Amibroker experience. This verification process includes checking for future leaks and execution errors. We have taken steps to avoid survivorship-bias in our results and we typically incorporate trading costs of $0.01 per share to account for commissions and slippage. However, we cannot guarantee that the strategies are completely error free or that they will perform exactly as shown in a backtest. The same goes for any other trading strategy or idea in the program. Please make sure you have read and understood the Terms of Use and Risk Warning before purchase.
Do the trading systems account for survivorship-bias?
The data we use (Norgate Premium – PDU/NDU) includes delisted securities and is adjusted for capital events and cash dividends. This greatly reduces the chance of survivorship-bias in the results. You can read more about the data we use on the Norgate Premium Data website.
Do I need Amibroker to enroll?
A registered version of Amibroker and experience with the platform is beneficial for Hedge Fund Trading Systems but not compulsory. You do not need Amibroker to take the course as each trading system is explained in detail. The program also contains many trading strategies that were not developed in Amibroker. The Marwood Value Model, for example, was developed in Portfolio123 and Ranger 1.0 is built in Excel.
What trading systems are included?
There are a mix of trading systems. The shortest is a day trading strategy for stocks and the longest trades on monthly timeframes. Most of the Amibroker systems trade stocks belonging to the S&P 1500 or Russell 3000 universe. Peter's volatility course trades volatility ETF's and utilises options contracts. The Marwood Value Model was designed in Portfolio123 and uses their own All Fundamentals database. Please see the individual course outlines for more details.
What if I am unhappy with the program?
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 solely 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. We feel our combined course bundle offers tremendous value, but if you aren't satisfied in the first 30 days, contact us so that we can better meet your needs. If we are unable to address your concerns a full refund will be provided.
How long do I have access to the program?
After enrolling, you will have unlimited access to the program including updates and new content for the duration of your membership - across any and all devices you own.
Will I learn about Amibroker on this program?
The course Hedge Fund Trading Systems contains a detailed back-test template and you will pick up plenty of useful Amibroker tips along the way, particularly in the realm of back-testing trading systems. However, the program is not principally designed to be a learning guide for Amibroker. The focus is on the trading system ideas and becoming profitable.
Is the program updated?
Yes. As a member of Access All Areas you can expect regular updates and new content. That might be a new course, a full trading strategy or useful article. We are constantly working to find new trading ideas and improve the quality of the program. On occasion, we may also introduce you to new materials that are not part of Access All Areas.
What else is included?
When you enrol in Access All Areas you gain access to all of our existing trading strategies and courses. You'll discover complete trading systems with code, a quantitative value investing model, a trend following course, a course on volatility, candlestick analysis, a course on trading psychology (mental models) and lots more besides. The program includes instructor support and will also be kept up to date with new material. On occasion, we may also introduce you to new materials that are not part of Access All Areas.
Do I need Norgate Premium Data?
All of our Hedge Fund Trading systems have been back-tested using data from Norgate Data. Subscription to Norgate for US stock data is beneficial but not required as we do go through the rules in detail and provide code for non-Norgate users. Please be aware that Norgate NDU is currently in beta testing mode and is closed to new members in preparation for launch in September 2017. The trade systems can actually be operated with Norgate data or data from other services and even free data. The program also includes many strategies that were not developed in Amibroker such as the Marwood Value Model and Peter's Ranger 1.0.
Are these trading systems guaranteed to make money?
No trading strategy is guaranteed to make money as the future is never known. Anyone who claims otherwise is withholding the truth so the systems are best thought of as useful ideas for further research. They can be adapted and modified as you wish.

A Letter from Joe Marwood
Don't make this mistake

When I first started out building trading systems 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.

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

Whenever I had a winning trade I was fooled into thinking I was on track. But ultimately I lost money time and again.

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

Now that I know about all the mistakes I made 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 courses and strategies which you can use and learn from.

Every course and every strategy that we produce is designed to help you find that elusive edge that you can use to become a better trader.

As I repeatedly stress in courses and blog posts, financial investing is extremely difficult. You are competing with the best of the best so you need to arm yourself with the right information.

Don't make the same mistakes I made. Enrol in our program and start your journey to more profitable trading.
