Keeping risks at the lowest level is what makes our trading terribly profitable. We do not pursue astonishing returns but we try to minimize drawdowns. This is because we trade our own money and we know very well that we must keep everything under control.
If you make a living from trading you know that you have to endure drawdown periods with the most sustainable pain ... this is the point where the rubber meets the road.
We do apply the same approach to other people's money when we rent our systems since we know that more or less all human beings want to be secured before being rich overnight.
Year after year we make money: this is what matters from our perspective.
We develop third parties ideas, we implement them into whichever programming language you can imagine (Phyton, Metatrader, Multicharts, Tradestation, C ++, Java, etc.) and we end up with testing and optimization. We do this work just for institutional customers on a long time frame schedule.
Yes, we rent trading systems. We trade more than 50 trading systems on different markets (equities, ETF, options, futures, commodities, forex, bonds, etc.) and we rent just those systems that have proven themselves profitable, robust and trustful in real time trading during a many years' time window.
