Frequently Asked Questions

Algorithmic Trading

Do you trade yourselves?

Absolutely, we trade Inteligex every day.

I'm not currently trading, is Inteligex for me?

If you have trading experience then certainly Inteligex will work for you. Inteligex is an intuitive add-on to charting/trading systems so as long as you understand basic market dynamics then you'll get the hang of it pretty quickly.

Am I smart enough to trade with algos?

Inteligex is designed to make algo trading simple. Think of it like this, you may not be smart enough to design the automated control systems on a Tesla, but you can drive one.

How do I start?

First off, use a demo account so that you get to know Inteligex with no "live" money at stake. Leave it set to manual and understand how the algorithms work, optimising your risk factors to levels that suit you. Then you can move to small value trades, again we would recommend initially in manual mode. When you have more confidence in how the system is working with your selected market than you can increase the value of trades within either manual or automatic mode.

Software

Why don't you offer a free trial?

We've found from experience that if there is a charge for the trial than traders are more committed to spend time understanding the product and getting success from it. Anyway, if you go on to a subscription you'll get the cost of the trial back!

Do you make money from me trading?

No we don't take any commissions, in fact we don't actually trade at all. Inteligex only sends the signal to trade, either manually or automatically, depending on how you have it set up. All the trades will be done through a broker that you either have or will need to set up. Our revenue comes from licensing the software to you, that way we are incentivised to ensure you have the best possible algorithms to work with.

What are the best markets to trade?

This is an interesting question. There are no real "best" things to trade. We trade forex, S&P (emini), DAX, SPY, oil, bonds and some highly liquid stocks. What we don't trade ourselves are cryptos and some other commodities (such as soybean) that we believe you need to have specialist knowledge to trade. We would recommend starting trading cautiously. Perhaps a mini-lot of GBPUSD. That won't make you rich, but it will get you into the swing of things. Give you what professionals call "market touch". Then over time increase your positions size and also diversify into other instruments. This is called a structured trading plan. As part of your education, we will help you make one.

Why do you continue to spend on research?

Our background is in investment banks, hedge funds and IT companies so we know that research is the key element to ongoing success. When someone says that they 'have discovered the key to the markets and have decided to share it', it is simply untrue. They might as well be telling you that they know the Lotto numbers for this weekend! We are honest with you and know that Inteligex is a product that gives you an edge in the battle to succeed. And in this game an edge is all you need, we continually research to ensure that edge is maintained and increased.
