At present, we have to be satisfied with relying on a hybrid approach: A melange of chaos theory, complexity theory, physics, mathematics, behavioral Prospect theory, empirical observation, with a great amount of trial and error experimentation, experience and creative insight thrown into the mix. This, so far has been the only way for us to achieve reasonable results and to get some rewards for our efforts. We often use the weather analogy to explain our core philosophy: Can you tell us exactly what the weather will be three days from now?

We think that this is the most you will need to start with. One of the most important concepts for us is Moving Averages. For the strategy of ALPHA ALGO design moving averages of the price, volatility, return density, and intertrade duration are the key ingredients to the recipe. In this book we will be concentrating only on stock price as the input data, leaving the analysis of the other factors for future volumes. We shall now describe these moving averages in some detail as they constitute the foundation stone and raw material building blocks of most algorithmic strategies from the most basic to the ultra advanced.

In all cases we must be aware that we are dealing with a moving target – the volume pattern of a stock on any particular day may vary substantially from its average. It even depends on what type of average we use, and how long its lookback period is. The volume distribution time function varies considerably between different stocks – more variation is experienced with thinly traded stocks both intraday (during the course of the trading session) and EOD (End Of Day), and predicting anything from historical volume data for a thinly traded stock is a dicey enterprise indeed.
