Lucena Presents in Partnership with the MTA and TSAA-SF:

How to Design and Validate a Systematic Foreign Exchange Strategy

May 26th, 12-2PM

Room 3214, Golden Gate Univ.

Quantitative trading strategy creation is a unique intellectual undertaking that draws on human insight, proprietary data, and nearly all aspects of computer science.

Our goal in this presentation is to take you on a creative journey from the seed of a trading idea to a live traded systematic strategy. Finding real value in systematic trading requires constant attention to detail to avoid the trap of overfitting. Forex is perhaps the deepest most liquid market on Earth, but it offers new challenges to the trader with equity experience.

Pivots - The Best Technique You Probably Aren't Using Yet

June 11th 10AM-12

Room 3214, Golden Gate Univ.

Speaker: Jonathan Ravel

Did you know the key stock index low of 2016 on 2/11-12 was bang on yearly support levels for the Dow, Russell, oil and high yield bonds? And that the high of the year this far in TLT was directly on a major pivot cluster as well? The list goes on. This talk will explain a less common technical tool and will discuss its usefulness in all components of a successful trade: entry, management, and exit. We will look at short, medium and long term market examples so the talk will be of interest to all traders and investors. Learn about the surprising simplicity and effectiveness of pivots for more effective market analysis and profitable positions.
