Hi, I'm an undergrad who's relatively new to trading but know some basics. Something has really been bothering me lately. It seems to me that retail/individual traders like you and me are mostly bound to trading strategies that involve fundamental and technical analysis or some cross of the two. However, from what I know, traders at hedge funds and BBs don't really trade on pure fundamentals, and technical analysis is pretty much frowned upon. So can someone explain to me or give me a general idea of the strategies that these firms would use to trade something like commodities/futures? Why is this sector considered among the most quantitative? I thought options would actually be more quant with the greeks and black-scholes. Thanks in advance for any insight.
