What is a Systems Trader?
The answer to that question depends on whether you’re talking about the industry of algorithmic trading, or you’re talking about the growing community of retail traders that are running their own portfolio of automated trading systems.
This website is dedicated to retail traders who want to run their strategies on their own computers. The industry of algorithmic traders is big business, which typically includes investment banks, hedge funds and institutional traders. They have huge budgets and are running hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars.
The typical retail trader is trading with a much smaller account, typically a few thousand to a few million dollars.
So, while the industrial trader and the retail trader don’t compete, they are both doing essentially the same thing. They develop and run a portfolio of automated strategies that trade their accounts.
How is the Retail Trader Different?
The retail trader has a big advantage over the industrial trader in that he or she is small and nimble, and at the same time has access to incredibly powerful tools that are on par with many of the tools that the industrial algorithmic trader uses. They also both have access to essentially the same market data.
There’s nothing stopping the retail trader from running the same sophisticated algorithms as the industrial trader, except that they are looking at two fundamentally different problems and with much different criteria that is a direct result of the size of their respective accounts.
But this is the advantage of the retail trader. They can employ some of the same methodology and strategies in most of the same markets, at a much smaller scale, and also put tu work very effective strategies that are impractical for the industrial behemoth.
