One of Currensee’s newest Trade Leaders, Adantia leads with a smart strategy that puts risk management first. Adantia’s strategy stems from their strong background in software development and is evident in their fully automated trading approach. Their founding team has over 20 years of experience in the software industry, and this is one of the company’s core strengths and differentiators. Their original model was built in 2008, and has seen a wide variety of market conditions since it started to be used for live trading.
The risk management strategy that Adantia has designed is the foundation for their actual trading strategy. They run four versions of the strategy, each with its own defined limitations along three risk measures considering account-wide loss, per position loss, and percentage of margin exposed. A breach of any of these measures results in closing out of positions.
Adantia has built their strategy on the core belief that financial markets are driven by a herd-like dynamic, due to the current-day fluid availability of market information and the balance of traders using similar indicators to respond to the information. After defining the risk measures appropriate to the strategy, Adantia’s team built a mathematical model that was focused on maximizing returns within the constraints of the risk management strategy. Stop-losses and take-profits are calculated based on the current conditions, using a capital-rationing algorithm that is different from the more typical pips-based approaches.
It’s important to point out that 100% of Adantia’s strategy and trading are automated – the software makes all decisions, there are no decisions made by humans. There have been times in the past where the temptation was certainly present, but the decision to rely on the model has been proven time and time again in the team’s experience.
Recently, BarclayHedge ranked Adantia #1 currency trader managing under $10 million and Future’s Magazine listed them as a “Hot New CTA.” A live webinar with Adantia was also recorded to showcase their commitment to risk management and consistent, long-term returns. Adantia’s model also works exceptionally well during times of increased volatility, which seems to be the new norm in today’s market.
Currensee welcomes Adantia to our program.
