What is algorithmic
trading?

If you've ever sat down at your computer, logged into your brokerage account, and said...

“Hmm... what should I buy?” Or: “What should I sell?”

then you should consider algorithmic trading.

What is Algorithmic trading?

Trading that follows rules

Algorithmic Trading uses mathematical rules to make buy and sell decisions for stocks, futures, or other instruments. Some algorithmic trading techniques are familiar (trend following, mean reversion), but others are exotic and less well-known (volatility dispersion). The beauty of Algo Trading is that one does not need to deeply understand the math behind it. One can simply “turn on” the algo.

No, it’s not High Frequency Trading

The media often confuse High Frequency Trading (HFT) with algorithmic trading, but they are not the same. In HFT, trades happen in milliseconds. Most regular humans can't trade using HFT. But there are all sorts of algorithmic trading techniques. Some trade very infrequently - maybe once or twice each month - and do not require ultra-expensive data centers or fiber-optic cables.

How does it work?

In the “old days,” it took weeks or months of work to deploy
your own algo. Now it takes... a mouse click.

Thousands of algos to choose from

Collective2 is a marketplace for algorithmic trading strategies. Once you sign up for a free account, you can shop for algos that meet your criteria. Then, with the click of a button, or two, you can turn on strategies inside a regular brokerage account.

How much do they cost?

Unlike hedge funds and CTAs, we do not charge a percentage of any profits. Instead, there is a simple, flat monthly fee for each algo you use. The price is set by the individual algo creator, and ranges from $25 to $300 per month. You can snap together multiple algorithms and let them trade side-by-side inside one brokerage account.

Who builds these algorithms?

The algorithmic trading strategies available on Collective2 are designed by traders, software programmers, and finance professionals around the world. Rather than working for a hedge fund or quant shop, these developers sell their strategies directly to investors through Collective2.

How can I trust the results?

Some of the results on Collective2 seem surprisingly good. (To be fair, some are surprisingly bad, too!) While all the track records on Collective2 are hypothetical, they share one important characteristic: they are go-forward, out-of-sample results. Meaning: we do not post “backtested” results. Rather, we require each algo to say exactly when it wants to buy, or when it wants to sell; and then we track (and publish for the world to see) the results of those trades in real-time.
