Systematic Trading and Investing

So many of us find it difficult to manage our investments without emotions of panic or anxiety, often leading to financial decisions that are unsound. This even applies to those of us who deem ourselves knowledgeable about the markets. Think about the time you have been faced with a decision to buy or sell a position, and sentiments of fear or notions of greed began to obscure your ability to make a decision in a rational and logical manner. We’re all driven by factors that often cannot be rationalised by data. ‘Being human’ can, unsurprisingly yet regrettably, get in the way of us making the best financial decisions for ourselves and our lives.
