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 option traders. Out of the starting blocks, in all likelihood, I made every trading misstep time and time again. Having experienced the volatility of index trading, I realized the significance of having a quantitative and systematic approach, thus embarking on the purposeful task of creating a workable trading system. After comprehensive testing of higher-order polynomial regression methods and technical analysis theories with actual trading, the algorithms became of value, and through continuous research and improvement, have maintained sustainability. The adaptive Z-alpha Trading System, which predates (1990), combines the outperformance potential of discretionary and quantitative to collaborate across the two spectrums to compound capital through rising and falling markets with reasonable risk. Even in the fact alpha results always matter, the investment process is far more reaching. As futures traders deploying hedged equity strategies, I would be lax if I didn’t state that (sometimes), but not very often, we are, the investment lexicon known as bagholders. Z-alpha’s pursuit of excellence and vision is to achieve positive returns every year, and our team mission embodies the firmness of purpose with adaptive tactical procedures to secure this visionary end.
