Social Trading for USA Residents

I have been travelling in the last three weeks. One of my destinations was Tampa, Florida, where I attended Ralph Vince‘s Risk-Opportunity Analysis course, over a weekend (check here for a presentation of the course). My main objective for attending was to strengthen my knowledge of Money Management/Position Sizing and my understanding of the concepts presented in Vince’s books.

The ideas expressed on this site are solely the opinions of the author. It was disturbingly absent from his book on the LSM. As a system designer that has an ETF trend trading system on Collective2. Of the mainstream social trading networks which let you follow and automatically copy other traders, ZuluTrade is the only one which still accepts clients from the USA.

The following table list the latency between our Trader's VPS and popular brokers by CNS datacenter [read more about low latency].There is also more information listed in the FAQ below this chart.. Click on the datacenter (i.e. LA, NYC or UK) at the top to order a VPS in that data center.

One problem I can see right away is the fact that the real drawdown is a big unknown. The recent flash crash is an indication that even the best drawdown estimate is not a good risk measure for trading. Regardless, the use of drawdown values to calculate position size is a very old concept and I fail to see anything new here other than the introduction of fancy terminology and display of 3-D plots.

As I said, a few real examples will show whether this is of any real use. Bill I agree with the comment. The methods presented by Vince are based on historical data and there is always the uncertainty about what the future holds and these methods do not provide a magic bullet to this issue.

Anyway — I hope you enjoy the future posts with practical applications. What do you do when you have 10 stocks held simultaneously, but the trades are closed out on different days? This induces an unrealistic upward bias on the results. Did he mention what to do in his seminar? It was disturbingly absent from his book on the LSM. Sorry to ramble — just trying to be detailed. Zack — I did have the same reaction during the course and this is indeed a problem of the methods presented by Vince — who briefly discussed this during the course.

But my goal is to try and see how this can be adapted for these types of problems so stay tuned in the next few weeks.. Jez, Totally off this topic, but how would I obtain historical spread data for euro dollars? For instance dec, red dec spread off of CSI? Spreads is an area, which I believe can offer additional diversification with potentially lower correlation than other straight instruments. Adding them to a TF portfolio would probably be beneficial something I want to test at some point….

Correlations are not static and are therefore problematic when incorporating into a trading system design. I also agree that risk is not volatility but is more closely associated with maximum drawdown. As a system designer that has an ETF trend trading system on Collective2.

Did Ralph indicate how many money managers are using his techniques? You can talk about this stuff until you are blue in the face but your best learning experience will come from put trading theories into practice and, if you are brave enough, putting the trades out there for the public to see e. Nothing forces you to focus on your trading system than having your own money on the line and allowing the public to view your performance!

Fred Vince did not mention any specifics on how many institutions were using his model — he simply referred to some of his clients for which ha had done some consulting work.. Agree on putting your performance public: Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.

But basically it is up to you whether you want to copy the actual trade or not. Peeptrade itself is based in the USA and so are most of the investors on the platform, meaning most trading strategies are fully compatible for US customers.

In addition, their platform is now connected to all brokers and financial institutions in the US. There are a few binary options brokers which started offering a social trading feature which allows you to copy the best performing traders on their platform.
