Why Our Technology Rocks
We are totally committed to creating the safest, best, and most profitable trading systems to change the world. How is it possible to achieve such an outlandish goal?
We built our business on the following foundation:
- Risk Mitigation
- Value Creation for our Clients
- Education for All (Financial and Otherwise)
- Changing the World for the Better
We apply the latest and most powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to create our trading systems. The specific areas of AI that we use are Genetic Programming and Genetic Algorithms.
Genetic Programming and Genetic Algorithms use the paradigm of natural selection to find high quality solutions to difficult problems. They are used more and more throughout a variety of problems including engineering, aerodynamics, as well as voice and vision recognition systems.
How Do Genetic Algorithms Work?
Genetic Algorithms mimic nature by creating a population of individuals. Each individual represents a solution to a particular problem. In our case, each individual represents a trading system. The computer iterates over generations so that the best individuals reproduce and give rise to more and more successful systems. As more and more successful systems fill the "gene pool," the average success of the trading systems goes up.
As the individuals reproduce, the computer calculates the results of thousands of generations. You can see the results from a recent population:
Our goal is to create trading systems that have an extremely high probability of succeeding. One of our most important and powerful areas of technology is Risk Mitigation Technology. Using statistical analysis, we calculate the probability of our systems' success rate. By measuring predictability, and developing technology to increase the predictability, we have created a methodology for reducing and minimizing risk.
Probability Maximization = Risk Minimization
As we apply our technology to creating and maximizing probability, we are able to reduce and minimize risk. How is this possible? If you have 100 percent certainty of an outcome, and you're accurate in measuring the probability, then there is no risk. Similarly, if there is a 50 percent probability of an outcome (such as a coin toss), then you have no way of predicting the outcome or reducing your risk.
We are not saying that our systems are 100 percent successful, all of the time. As a matter of fact, nobody is successful 100 percent of the time at anything. We do not pretend to be able to predict the future with absolute accuracy. As with anything in life, there is always risk involved. However, by increasing accuracy and minimizing risk, we can optimize success.
Value Creation for Our Clients
We believe that value creation is the key to success for any business. Therefore, our goal is to create as much value as possible for our clients. While most mutual funds do worse than the market, and financial advisors say "You have to ride through the ups and downs," we take a different approach. We believe that our client should consistently make money regardless of whether the market goes up or down.
Education for All
It's a fact that 90 percent of Americans struggle with their finances, and most people live their whole lives without having enough money. Through our service, we strive to help everyone become financially independent. But money will only take you so far. To really succeed in life, and have enough money, education is critical.
And by education, we do not mean a college degree! And certainly not a Harvard MBA. To us, education is learning the skills that it takes to succeed in every aspect of life, including finances. They do not teach these skills for success in college, or any traditional school. Specifically this means reading books and blogs, listening to the CDs, visiting web sites and going to seminars that teach these skills. We want to inspire and facilitate the improvement of education for all the people in the world.
Changing the World for the Better
A business is a powerful force on its clients, employees and the environment. We strive to help our clients and employees succeed in every aspect of their lives.
For our clients, we want to provide both the ability to achieve financial freedom is short period of time, as well as a little bit of advice for their continued success. Our goal is to create trust and build strong relationships with our clients so that they feel inspired to improve every part of their lives: financial, mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual.
Our employees are critical to the success of the business, and we strive to create the most positive environment to help them succeed. We have advisors, not bosses. Our goal is to create a company where employees actually want to come to work!
We only have one earth to live on (at least for now). So that means that we must do what we can to preserve it. As a business, we have much more of an effect on the environment than an individual. And with that impact comes responsibility. Therefore, we set up our business to have a minimal negative impact on the environment. In fact, we will create a business that has a positive impact on our environment.
