Algorithmic Trading is the Investment of the Future
Algorithmic Trading is the Investment of the Future

<p style="box-sizing: border-box; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 25px; color: #333333; font-family: &quot;Open Sans&quot;; font-size: 14px; letter-spacing: 0.3px; outline: none !important;">Let’s face it – investing is difficult! &nbsp;<em style="box-sizing: border-box; outline: none !important;"><span style="box-sizing: border-box; outline: none !important; font-weight: bold;">Gone are the days of saving for retirement.</span></em>&nbsp;&nbsp;The average savings account in the USA pays less than 1%. &nbsp;Fortunately for most investors the stock market has been going up and up, but it’s going to correct (it always does). &nbsp;But it hasn’t been a good ride for all investors. &nbsp;Many retirees now living off their retirements are heavy into fixed income investments like annuities that pay a fixed monthly amount based on interest rates, which are at historic lows. &nbsp;Interest rates are so low, when these investors bought annuities, they are getting up to 90% less than what they expected. &nbsp;Quantitative Easing is killing retirees’ portfolios.</p>
<p style="box-sizing: border-box; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 25px; color: #333333; font-family: &quot;Open Sans&quot;; font-size: 14px; letter-spacing: 0.3px; outline: none !important;">So what is the solution? &nbsp;Along with the bad comes good – like with any technology. &nbsp;Modern hospital techniques prolong life and save lives, but also with new medical technology comes many dangers. &nbsp;This is also true in financial services. &nbsp;For example, it’s now possible to trade and invest in algorithmic trading products called sometimes ‘robots’ which do investing for you. &nbsp;Just like human managers, all robots are different. &nbsp;Some are extremely risky, some are extremely conservative. &nbsp;With the advent of algorithmic trading, investors should be prepared to do due diligence on this new asset class, and be familiar with some of what such an investment entails.</p>
