Strategies’ base and scale

All strategies described on this site are based on proprietary algorithms , organized in spreadsheets and coded in VBA , with macro routines ; they can be easily converted in other languages (Python, R etc. ) . Every strategy has its relevant page , where points of intervention (buy and sell) are showed , to check how they work and when they act . For example , Equity Alpha Strategy page lists , at each week start , which stocks are selected to pursue strategy objectives . Futures page exhibits , for each day , assets to buy or shorten at following day’s open price (performances are obtained selling the asset at same day closing ) . Long-Short strategy page shows what assets are selected on a weekly base , with relevant stop-loss prices , or prices to enter a long position . EMAs strategy page , on a daily base , points out levels where opening or closing positions ; and so on .
