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.
Thanks for your patience and professionalism. Your experience as a programmer and heart of a teacher was the perfect combination I needed! Looking forward to working together again.
Being 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.
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.
We asked Matt if he could improve our code to make it work seamlessly, as we were spending too much time doing multiple backtests. Because the strategy was complex, Matt initiated a Skype conversation with us so he could understand the scope of what we wanted. Matt then came up with a unique, elegant solution of several codes that were a major overhaul of our code, but were far better, and were easy to use.
Matt supplied the custom backtesting code solutions in just a few days. We were amazed at how Matt could put together multiple complex codes with so few errors, and then troubleshoot them very rapidly, if needed. In the first month of trading using the new codes, our profit was +8%.
In summary, Matt saw the big picture that we didn’t, and offered a better solution than what we could imagine. His extensive knowledge of AmiBroker and custom backtesting allowed him to match the code to our actual trading. He is very fast and accurate, and has reasonable rates. He has provided plenty of post-purchase customer support with any questions we have had. We are more than satisfied with the solution and Matt’s professionalism, and highly recommend his services. We would be delighted to work with him again for either helping with coding or being coached in AB.
Matt’s work helped me to simplify my trading systems and gave me easy tools to implement my trading ideas. He was a pleasure to work with, very competent and easily met all project deadlines. He helped me to enhance my systems and opened my eyes to seeing what I wanted to accomplish in a different way which was beneficial to the overall project. Matt helped to make the process painless and gave me a very easy to implement solution to my challenges.
