Meeting # 5:


Jeff Drake
Director of Trading Technology, Nirvana Systems
Date: January 16, 2018
Time: 7:00 p.m. (Registration 6:30)
Duration: 2 hours +/-
Location: Crowne Plaza
Topic: Adaptive Trade Management: Adjusting to Changing Markets for Superior Performance

The only certainty in financial markets is that nothing is certain. The ability to adapt to changing market conditions allows us to outperform bullish markets, but also protect ourselves in bearish times.  Adaptive Trade Management (ATM) is a new technology created by Nirvana Systems.

In this presentation, Jeff Drake, Nirvana’s Director of Trading Technology, will introduce you to an automated approach to deal with market changes.  Whether it be adjusting our trading strategy, trade management, or portfolio allocation, see how ATM gives us the peace of mind knowing that as markets change, our trading approach will automatically change in order to achieve the optimal investment outcome.  This will be applied to swing trading, reversion to the mean and trend following strategies
