• FINDING ORDER IN CHAOS



  • Art conveys complex issues, simply. Traditional art is associated with painting, music or literature. However, there is also the art of mathematics, a prime example being Einstein’s famous formula E = mc2, the equivalence between mass and energy.
    At Qantares we regard ourselves as mathematical artists, bringing clarity to complex global financial markets.
    A New Realm in Quantitative Finance
    1. Any attempt to model market behaviour suffers from limitations inherent to the model.
    2. Rather than modelling market behaviour we let the data speak for itself and continuously adapt our analytic approach accordingly.
    3. Following this approach we discover hidden market patterns, derive trading signals of outstanding quality and minimise risk.

    Since the formation of markets, investors have worked to optimise trading results through a broad variety of advanced mathematical and statistical methods.

    Such methods to forecast market futures have seen varied results, with the very best delivering close to 52% forecast accuracy. Compared with a simple coin-toss which in the long run produces a hit-rate of 50%, such advanced prediction systems appear to be only slightly ahead, but the profits they generate are vast and often mind-blowing.

    Consider a classical roulette wheel (with one zero) where the probability of being right with a simple bet (e.g. red vs. black) is 48.65%, granting the house a marginal ‘hit-rate’ of 51.35%, from which the casino is able to make considerable profits.

    In order to enhance current technology and achieve truly outstanding trading results, a paradigm shift is needed, and this comes with an entirely new approach to understanding market data. QanTRADE is such an approach.
