  • The CodeX-Aroon Auto-Trading Approach – the AAPL Use Case

    The CodeX-Aroon Auto-Trading Approach – the AAPL Use Case

    We implement the CodeX-Aroon auto-trading strategy to examine the AAPL stock 2022 in terms of stock trends, trading signals, positions, backtesting, and benchmarking against SPY ETF. The Aroon indicator is composed of two lines. An up line which measures the number of periods since a High, and a down line which measures the number of periods since a Low. The indicator is typically applied to 25 periods of data, so the indicator is showing how many periods it has been since a 25-period high or low. When the Aroon Up is above the Aroon Down, it indicates bullish price behavior (cf. 2022-04, -08, -11) When the Aroon Down is above the Aroon Up, it signals bearish price behavior (cf. 2022-02, -03, -05, -06, -09, -10). Crossovers of the two lines can signal trend changes. For example, when Aroon Up crosses above Aroon Down it may mean a new uptrend is starting. The road ahead: this indicator should be incorporated into the comprehensive investment/trading risk management and portfolio optimization workflows.

  • Bear vs. Bull Portfolio Risk/Return Optimization QC Analysis

    Bear vs. Bull Portfolio Risk/Return Optimization QC Analysis

    Based on the Portfolio Allocation and Optimization Algorithm discussed earlier and the related portfolio management, let’s run the Bear vs. Bull QC test of the portfolio P=[MSFT, AAPL, NDAQ] in terms of the Risk/Return Ratio (RRR). We have got a Sharpe ratio of less than one that is considered unacceptable or bad. The risk the portfolio encounters isn’t being offset well enough by its return. A high correlation coefficient indicates poor diversification. Results are consistent with the Barchart stocks-to-sell opinion.
