Automated Trading System Ideas

Welcome, Trading Enthusiast!

Systematic Algo Trader is dedicated to taking trading ideas and turning them into profitable, automated trading systems. We take one trading idea every week, build a system, and test it to see how it may perform in the real world.

Subscribe for our weekly newsletter with shiny new content, sent every Friday with the Trading System Idea of the Week, system portfolio update, and more!

Don’t worry, we will never, ever, ever sell, overuse, or donate your email address. Promise.

Watch us build and test a new automated trading system every week

Join us every week as we take a new trading idea through our four phase development process:

  • 1: Plan & Design
  • 2: Build
  • 3: Test
  • 4: Deploy

Follow along and you will learn how we do what we do, as we do it.  We are never short of ideas and believe that we can never have too many good trading systems.

About 98% of ideas are bad and fail

We have a trashcan full of wonderful trading ideas and bad systems.  Failure is okay and expected. You will see our failures and successes here.

1-2% of ideas may result in good trading system

If a trading system passes all of our tests, we will put it into a virtual portfolio for the world to see how well it performs.  Our aim is to be as transparent as possible and show what a system may look like if it were in a real portfolio.  (Read our Disclaimer on hypothetical results).

We hope you learn more about systematic trading through this site and are entertained, amused, and educated by what we present.  If you have a trading idea that you would like for us to turn into a system, drop us a line via the Contact page and we will give you all the details.  In the meantime….

Enjoy everything!
