I’ve been an independent participant in various financial markets that stretches over forty years, while in times past, becoming one of the largest OEX index options traders. Out of the blocks, in all likelihood, I made every trading mistake known to man. Having experienced the volatility of index trading, I realized the significance of having a quantitative and systematic approach, thus embarking on the purposeful endeavor of creating a workable trading system. After years of testing higher-order polynomial regression methods and technical analysis theories with actual trading, our system’s algorithm was formulated, and through continuous research and improvement, has maintained sustainability. Even though alpha returns do matter, the investment process is far more reaching. Z-alpha Trading System’s vision is to bring about positive returns every year, and our mission is clear and concise with strategic disciplines to accomplish that visionary end.
