Archer Managed Forex | Our Algos
Archer Trading has developed a unique trading and risk management framework with an innovative money management model that powers all of it’s algorithms. FATAL stands for Forex Automated Trading Algorithm. FATAL is a robust platform which drives the various algorithmic trading models by which Archer Trading extracts profits from the Forex market.
The first part and core of our program, aptly named STASIS, or STatistical Arbitrage SwIng System, is a short-term, market neutral strategy focusing on correlation and cointergration of currency pairs. STASIS exploits these relationships by capitalizing on them when they move beyond predefined thresholds as statistically they move back into alignment or homeostasis; the namesake of the algorithm. This strategy is commonly known as Statistical Arbitrage or Pairs Trading.
The second part of our program is our PATH or Probability AlgoriTHm scalping models. These models are a series of scalping algorithms designed to take 1-2 high probability trades per day. Typical hold times for these trades are under an hour.
The third part of our forex trading program is the M-MATH or Multipurpose Multi-timeframe AlgoriTHm. M-MATH is our longest running program and is a robust, linear mathematical based model, which uses multiple timeframes to gauge strength and trend and selects one of 4 entry models based on those probabilities.
The final component of our program is the PETAL or PrEdictive Trend ALgortihm. PETAL is a trio of trend following strategies that capitalize on longer-term trends on the G7 currency pairs and can be in the market for days at a time.
With the combination of the components of each system combined with the base that drives each, we've smoothed out the equity curve from drawdowns in our managed account program. Diversification and innovative ideas were key in designing each component of this managed account program.
While some of our systems would be classified as swing-trading models, most of our systems are definitely day models. Day trading sits in the middle of the continuum between scalping and trend following. Day traders hold a particular stock/derivative/currency for a period of time, generally between a few minutes and 12 hours, and trade it on the basis of its intra-day or intra-week oscillations.
In finance, day trading is an investment strategy that tries to take advantage of short-term moves that seem to play out in various markets. Our system aims to work on the market trend, market range and fractional pricing inefficiency to take benefit from both sides of the market enjoying the profits from the ups and downs.
We treat your money like our own. After all these trades are placed in our personal accounts just the same as yours. How many other money managers can say that?
RISK WARNING: Trading in foreign exchange is speculative and may involve the loss of principal; therefore, assets placed under management should be risk capital funds that if lost will not significantly affect one’s personal financial well being.
