Algo Trading

Algorithmic Trading often refer to as Algo Trading is a method of executing order using automated pre – programmed trading instruction accounting for multiple variables such as time, price etc. This type of trading attempts to leverage the speed and computational resources of computers and reducing the need for a human trader’s intervention is minimized and thus the decision making is very quick. This enables the system to take advantage of any profit making opportunities arising in the market much before a human trader can even spot them.

Examples of some of the common trading strategies used in algo-trading are High Frequency Trading, Arbitrage Opportunities, trading range etc.

Advantages of Algo-trading

  • There is no time lag, as soon as the signal gets generated, the order gets executed.
  • Manual transactions take time as first trigger/signal is received, and then brokerage account is opened to enter the order.
  • Human emotions are not involved. Hence, removing last moment dilemma and time lag.
  • Retail investors may avoid booking the loss due to the phenomenon called loss aversion.
  • Positions can be scaled up, if a profit is made on previous trade, a percentage of it can be deployed in the next trade. Thus, even position sizing can be automated.
