What is a bot?A bot is an autonomous program on a network that can interact with computer systems or users, especially one designed to find certain things and bring them back to their command(er) and function like a player in a game. [Read More]
What is an Algorithm? An algorithm is a set of instructions designed to perform a specific task. [Read More]
How are algorithms useful?Algorithms are useful in solving challenges we encounter every single day. [Read More]
Where all do we use algorithms in our life?EVERYWHERE! Algorithms aren’t confined to mathematics alone. [Read More]
Do algorithms make our decisions easier?Algorithms allow us to make more informed decisions more informed decisions. [Read More]
Do the vSPACE algorithms decide things for me?vSPACE algorithms simply provide you with a specific output based on the mathmatics parameters of the coded algorithm, whether that’s an options strategy, new stock entry, or existing stock hedge. [Read More]
How do I use vSPACE algorithms?You utilize vSPACE algorithms to execute many different tasks associated with your investment process that you would never be able to accomplish on your own.  [Read More]
How are the vSPACE algorithms built? vSPACE algorithms are all individually written. They are first designed in mathematics to apply to a unique problem or command. This could be a filter task, a search task, a calculation task, or complex formulation of multiple layers.  [Read More]
What is algorithmic trading?Algorithmic trading is securities trading that uses a computer program that follows a defined set of instructions to place a trade. [Read More]
What are algorithmic notifications? Algorithmic notifications are pre-programmed and systematic calculations that track an unlimited amount of potential variables in the market to provide you with an indication that those variables have been met.  [Read More]
What is a trend following algorithm? Examples of trend following algorithms inside vigtec are the Bull Bear pivot, VPOC, Momentum, and VWAP. These are all algorithms that are related to location and connection of price to metrics. [Read More]
What are Mathematical Based strategy algorithms? Proven mathematical models, like the delta-neutral trading strategy for example, allow trading on a combination of options and the underlying security at the same time (an example of which is called a ‘Collar’).  [Read More]
What are Index Rebalancing algorithms?This is what we refer to as OTF trades here at vigtec. These occur at ‘one-time frame’ and are predictable every day. Usually these OTF index rebalancing algorithms work between 3:40PM and 3:55PM every close of market days. [Read More]
What are Mean Reversion algorithms? Some examples of mean reversion algorithms inside vigtec are Swipe Right, Buzzed, Snap Back, and Skunk Drunk. [Read More]
What is a VWAP algorithm? Institutions will run this type of algorithm all day every day to average into large block volume level positions. [Read More]
How do people use algorithms to trade? Most propreitary funds (prop trading and/or Hedge Funds/Institutions) will hire "quants," or mathematicians, to create algorithms for automated trading purposes that become proprietary to that entity.  [Read More]
What is a Neural Network?A neural network is a series of algorithms that seeks to recognize underlying relationships in a set of data through a process that mimics the way the human brain operates. [Read More]
What is Multiple Linear Regression and is it used in vigtec? Multiple linear regression (MLR), also known simply as multiple regression, is a statistical technique that uses several explanatory variables to predict the outcome of a response variable. [Read More]
What is the difference between Linear and Multiple Regression? Linear compares only one dependent variable and multiple assumes that there is a linear relationship between both independent and dependent variables. [Read More]
What is Artificial Intelligence? Artificial intelligence (AI) makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. [Read More]
