INVESTING MADE EASY

Use my app to build your own ETF or stocks portfolio, backtest it for up to 100 years, and follow it!

Having an investment plan is a must!

Design your portfolio based on the built-in strategies

You need a plan! In System Trader there are 39 ready to use strategies, both passive and active, for ETFs and individual stocks. You can quickly run them and adjust to your needs. And all is simple: no special skills are required.

Test your portfolio for the last 100 years

The effectiveness of strategies can be checked for the last 100 years using built-in historical market data! Most people look at the recent data, which is dangerous because you should know how the strategy works under as many extreme situations as possible.

Get recent market data at no cost from free sources

You can import free market data from Yahoo and Stooq (ETFs, mutual funds, stocks). If you have data in a text file or Metastock format, it can be loaded into the software as well. For American and Australian stock market System Trader supports Norgate premium paid data.

Invest following a plan rather than emotions

Use an evidence-based decision-making process to avoid behavioural biases and errors. Now you don't have to think about what to do next because all you have to do is to follow the plan. Same data, same decisions!

Evidence-based rather than story-based decisions.

Many investors have disappointing investment results due to a lack of strategy. Others believe that it is impossible to make money on the market. The truth is as the famous investor Warren Buffett described it: investing is simple but not easy.

Now with System Trader software you can use a ready-made, simple long-term strategy that requires little time to implement and execute. When making decisions based on a clear and proven strategy, you are not acting under the influence of emotions. You can spend your saved time elsewhere while saving a lot of money by investing yourself instead of paying for advice or services to others.

Stocks investing made easy.

The Advanced Equity Momentum strategy is a professional all-weather equity momentum approach that may always be fully invested but still protects the downside. We want to have in our portfolio stocks which are in an uptrend.

The stocks momentum ranking is calculated based on Andreas Clenow's book "Stocks on the Move". It is using annualized exponential regression slope multiplied by the coefficient of determination.

It's a long-term approach in which we may set a minimum required momentum slope. An absolute minimum momentum slope is required then for a stock to be bought. Stocks are ranked according to this number, and the top X stocks are purchased at volatility parity (i.e. each stock is holding equal risk).

If not enough stocks are available with a positive slope, we can fill the allocation with a bond ETF (e.g. BND) instead.

Trading is done monthly only by default, but can also be executed on different time intervals (e.g. weekly, quarterly, even yearly).

ETF investing made easy.

Design any permanent (passive) portfolio and backtest it for up to 100 years using built-in data. If you are looking for ideas, we have dozens of ready-made portfolios.

Details matter. You can quickly check the optimal rebalancing method to restore the portfolio to its original weights.

If that's not enough, try out an excellent strategy called Global Equities Momentum (GEM) by Gary Antonacci. For the past 70 years, GEM has generated a 15% annual return, with a maximum drawdown of around 20%.

In 2018, I launched the System Trader podcast, in which I try to present practical, proven and verifiable methods of investing in capital markets. I try to reach distinguished and recognized experts all over the world.

I graduated in computer science, and I have been a professional programmer for 15 years, working for such companies as Motorola and IBM. In 2007, I started my adventure with capital markets.

Experience in the field of computer science and knowledge in the field of investing allows me to implement a unique project for investors. My ambition is to present a practical approach to investing based on hard rules and numbers, rather than conspiracy theories, guesses and predicting the future.

How much does it cost?

What are the technical requirements?

You need a computer running on Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit) + Internet connection.  

How to get market data?

In System Trader, you have built-in historical data for the most common asset classes. You can also import free data from Yahoo and Stooq (ETFs, mutual funds, stocks). If you have data in a text file or Metastock format, it can be loaded into the software as well. For American and Australian stock market System Trader supports Norgate premium paid data.

Is it for me?

System Trader software is an excellent tool for all those who don’t want to follow markets daily as you can build a long-term portfolio which can require as little as just a few minutes per month to run it.  

How to use System Trader strategies in the real market?

In the case of fixed portfolios (e.g. 60/40, 60% equities, 40% bonds), System Trader can be used to conduct tests going much further than ETF quotes, e.g. 100 years. You can observe how such portfolio performed in various long-term economic cycles. You can also adjust the execution details of such portfolio, for example, how to rebalance it to restore the original weights efficiently. Finding ETFs matching historical data is usually very simple. To use the portfolio on the market, you can do it even without using System Trader because they are very simple.

In the case of active strategies, such as Global Equities Momentum or Advanced Equities Momentum, System Trader is used not only for backtesting but also to generate current market signals, typically monthly.  

What type of strategies can I find in System Trader?

There are two groups of strategies in System Trader: passive and active.

Passive strategies (fixed portfolios) do not try to beat the market. They have fixed allocation of various asset classes (e.g. stocks, bonds, gold, REITs), which are only restored to their original weights (so-called rebalancing).

System Trader also implements two active strategies based on the momentum anomaly. The first, Global Equities Momentum (GEM) uses ETFs and is very simple to use. The second, Advanced Equity Momentum, uses the stock market - companies with the highest momentum are added to the portfolio.  

Is it possible to beat the market?

Markets are not fully efficient and recurring market anomalies, such as momentum originating in behavioural psychology, have been observed for centuries. This does not mean, however, that they are easy to use for psychological reasons. Besides, beating the market in the horizon of many years does not mean that the strategy beats the market every year.
