I’ve worked with Matt for about 3 years, going back to the Connors Research Chairman’s Club. When he first got my attention was two Amibroker training courses he taught. Starting from zero knowledge of Amibroker, by the end of these courses, I was empowered to be able to code and conduct portfolio-level backtests of a wide range of mean reversion strategies. This was absolutely one of the best investments in my trading skills I ever made. Wanting to go further, I followed up with Matt several times for personal consulting and he was able to help me with implementing scale-in trades through the low level CBT in portfolio level backtesting and outputting results on a monthly basis to Excel. Not only did he help me with the actual code, he also provided a detailed understanding of how it worked that enabled me to build upon it further. Overall, Matt has been a great person to work with, he is a fantastic teacher and very committed to delivering value to his clients.
We had coded a stock-trading strategy in AmiBroker (AB) using an easy high-level approach. Although our code was functional, eventually we realized that there were too many differences between the code and our actual trading, and that our code was not strictly tradeable. We had hit a wall and did not have the experience or skills to improve the code any more.
I enrolled in Matt’s Amibroker CBT Intensive course and got a lot more than I bargained for. I expected something along the lines of “do this, then do that”, etc. Instead, I received expert explanations of how the CBT works, its order breakdown, etc that I could apply across all parts. I’ve been staring at back-testing code for years and, while I could follow the logic, never understood how it all held together. This course was a big deal for me. I did the homework Matt set and applied it to one of my systems. Eureka! It worked!
I found Matt’s CBT Course to be invaluable. Having used Tradestation for many years, I began working with Amibroker about a year ago. Matt’s help was a massive shortcut for me. There are many possible pitfalls when designing and testing systems. Improper coding is certainly one of them. And with Matt’s help, I was able to learn how to code in Amibroker both accurately and efficiently. The skeleton code that comes with the course is something I’ve used over and over. And the ability to go back and review the videos and PowerPoint slides allows me to easily refresh myself on concepts I may not have used for a while. I highly recommend Matt and the CBT course.
I took Matt’s beginning and advanced Amibroker (AB) courses a few years ago. After that, I was able to code three swing-trading strategies. I then worked with Matt to put them in a live-trading form, which I’ve been trading successfully for several years on a daily basis. I also took Matt’s CBT and Adaptive Trading Course in AB in 2018. I then worked with Matt to significantly upgrade one of my 3 strategies and started trading it in Jan. 2019. Not only have my trading results more than paid for the course fees, but they have paid for several family vacations! I highly recommend Matt’s courses if you want to create trading strategies you can have confidence in.
If you have the Amibroker basics worked out, and you want to progress to the level of creating robust, accurate and incredibly powerful back-tests, Matt will guide you through it brilliantly in this course. Do this if you don’t want to stay an amateur but want the easiest possible learning curve! Matt is an excellent instructor and he really knows his stuff.
Being a trader I always look for strategies to add to my portfolio to diversify and have smooth equity curve. I worked with several Indian programmers but never reached my expectation of realistic portfolio management techniques, optimization of the system for different market condition, consultation to make good system better. Matt provided me with all of the above. His experience in coding your logics, Amibroker, backtesting and optimization is commendable. He also consult me to make sure that my systems are as realistic as possible when I trade the systems live. Initially I was sceptical that our different time zone will not lead the desired result but Matt understood the concepts(even complicated ones too) very easily and coded and provided the results at fastest turnaround time possible. He keeps on helping me with how I can bring some new filters or condition to make the system better. I can summarise his consultation fees as “Value for Money”. I advocate every new enthusiastic programme trader, experienced traders to work with him to see how he can help your system make better return.
The Only Shortcut to Success
Getting the algorithm development process right from the start is critical to success. The nuances of creating a robust trading system are many, including being aware of faulty assumptions, commissions, slippage, liquidity, survivorship bias and the list goes on. The greatest of these curses are rooted in human behavioral biases, such as natural tendencies to curve-fit and data-mine, producing wonderful backtests that utterly fail when released on an unknown future. We have a process for designing robust systems – believing there are “frameworks” in which one should operate to avoid over-optimization. This is where art meets science and why so very few ever get it right.
