Australian fintech teaches non-traders how to build trading robots

Traders came to Melbourne from various regions globally in order to participate in the event, marking out Australia as a very important region for retail FX and its surrounding technology

Over 100 traders from all over Australia, Canada, India, Hong Kong, and South Africa gathered at the Sofitel on Collins, November 25th 2017 for the first ever inaugural Algo Trading Conference hosted by Melbourne-based proprietary trading firm Trade View Investments.

Attendees were treated to a full-day intensive workshop discussing how three world class traders developed and tested each of their automated trading models to support their own trading strategies.

Led by Trade View Investments Founder and Head Trader Robert Bubalovski, Tribelet Capital Management Founder Kevin Saunders and four-time World Cup Trading Champion Andrea Unger who each demonstrated how to build one of their automated trading models using Trade View’s in-house trading system development platform, EA Lab.

The models built on the day were then tested live on EA Analyser, also developed by Trade View, to test trading models before they are set in motion. After the conference, VIP attendees had the opportunity to discuss their own ideas and trading strategies over canapes and drinks with Unger, Saunders, and Bubalovski at Sofitel’s Atrium Bar overlooking Melbourne’s lush cityscape.

Attendees received copies of the three automated trading models developed exclusively for the conference, which they can use to test further, decide to trade and incorporate into their own ideas.

With Trade View’s ongoing intensive workshops, video tutorials, and unlimited professional trading support, attendees are encouraged to further broaden their skills and develop their own strategies to know what works best for them.

Automated or algorithmic trading is a method of executing trades by putting together a set of mechanical rules for market entry and exit whilst taking into consideration variables like time, pricing, and historical trends to name a few.

The term “trading robots” is also gaining even more popularity now as technology continues to outpace and revolutionise the financial services industry. Whilst automated trading minimises human intervention, much of its success still relies on an intensive strategy development, performance monitoring, and timely response to market activities that cannot be managed solely by trading robots.

Trade View founder Robert Bubalovksi is overwhelmed by the market’s reception of automated trading development programs. “We started Trade View in 2012 with a vision to share what we’ve learned from trading since 1996.”

“Automated trading is the way of the future, and it is an incredible opportunity to be able to put together the Algo Trading Conference to further empower individuals who are willing to put in the hard work and develop their own automated models and strategies”, said Robert Bubalovski who started the business in 2012 and has conducted over 100 workshops on trading, risk and money management, and trade automation.
