Hello, I’m A Casey, a business entrepreneur, an avid reader, and a passionate trader. I have a B.Sc. in Computer Engineering and countless certificates from educational courses. I lived in many places around the world, and now I reside in Toronto, Canada.
I launched several businesses in the past 20 years, sold a few of them for profit and closed some at a loss. I made my first 6 figure trading profit at the end of the dot com bubble, only to lose it all and then some in the crash afterward. I thought I knew everything at the time, but obviously, I was just inside the dot com bubble.
In the 2000s, I was in and out of trading, never spending enough time to treat it seriously as a business as it should be, but always looking for the holy grail strategy or indicator (hint: it doesn’t exist).
In the past decade I have been blessed to be able to invest in hedge funds, which opened my eyes to how simple strategies can be profitable yet robust.
I read a lot of books, some good and some garbage, but Micahel Covel Turtles book was really an eye opener on how simple algos can generate wealth. I took a handful of courses with some of the top systematic traders and manage to combine the best of what I learned with my own research to reach a powerful development workflow that produces robust algorithms (trading systems). Still the workflow needed a lot of programming which is not easy to accomplish without dedicating many hours for it, but the last 2 years saw many advancements in software tools, where they became cheaper and more powerful, coupled with continuous power increase in the hardware, it is now easy to do what hedge funds used to do just 5 years ago.
