Here's a suggestion from a noob... My investing strategy that I decided to share with everyone.
I've decided to split my funds of my personal acct into 2. 50/50.
50% goes into all so called Fix-Income, high income and cap appreac. funds. I can easily yield a >8% and the AUM volatility, is very low, while sharp ratio is stable.
Reason being, mid-long term investing for my future, and a with $100,000 AUM, I can happily take a $5-6k/yr just purely on dividend income. Sounds not bad, but not enough.
The next 50%:
I started IB with TWS, running automated trading strategies. I run about 5 algorithms, used to detect market movements, and they are do "pretty" well. +- $200 a day, 50-100 trades/day
-Positions held no longer than 5 mins
-no overnight positions
-scalable to any markets.
-Fully automated, hands off intra day trading, support up to 50 quotes (as per IB)
The reason I do this because I want a strategy that has no effects on this bad and volatile market. Now I could scalp, and have net 0 positions, free of cash flow, while tweaking settings and finding good securities.
Here's why I'm stuck. With my entire strategy I wonder what I could do next:
1) Market my fund to friends, relatives, take their capital to trade.
2) Market my automation to a Prop. Connect my system to their IB acct and do it frm home.
3) Sell my s/w to sell-side brokers, setup monthly subs $
4) Start a webby, sell subscriptions to signals of my algos to retailers.
5)Get a job that requires Algo developers. (they are quite rewarding usually >$100k PA)
This may sound stupid, for most retailer traders, but I need advice from good people. You know what I mean. Thks !
