David Pieper, Senior Technical Analyst at Tradesignal Ltd., will show in his presentation how to develop, test and improve the risk-return ratio of systematic trading strategies at the Evening Event hosted by Zug Commodity Association on October 24th, 2019 in Zug, Switzerland.


Systematic Trading – Improving Performance with rule-based decision making.

Systematic trading refers to trading with clearly defined rules that have been tested in advance. The entry, choice of position size, risk management and calculation of price targets all follow a systematic approach. The basis of such a trading strategy is primarily with the use of technical analysis tools, such as patterns or other such indicators. Using proper back test methods, recurring patterns can be identified on the basis of historical data. Instead of relying on the trader’s intuition, all decisions are based on quantitative factors that do not depend on emotions. Especially for institutional market participants, professional software for technical analysis and algorithmic trading is an indispensable tool. David Pieper, Senior Technical Analyst at Tradesignal Ltd, will show in his presentation how to develop and test systematic trading strategies and improve the risk-return ratio.


David Pieper has 20 years of financial market experience. After earning the designation of Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA), he spent several years in investment research at Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW).
