The only beginner to advanced online academy for algo trading
Get the tools, support and training you need to go from your first trade, to financial growth and freedom with quant trading
The Financial Hacker
Gain the exact skills I use to build $1k-10k algos — over and over again — without back-breaking chart time, emotional discretionary trading or costly guessing games:
82% total equity growth (large fund) traded with simple algos
$1998 to $5114 (+256%) in 5 months in Forex—just 1 algo coded using a basic strategy
$10k to $18k (+$8348) in 5 days — Traded during the Brexit vote count
Over the past 7 years I've used the same skills I teach our students at Robot Wealth to write winning algos in FX, futures and equities, both in my prop firm and retail account, while our students successfully trade Crypto and other markets too.
Today, I'll to show you exactly how to code algos like the ones above, so you can trade your way to freedom in-between work or studies — and with less frustration and wasted money.
The best part is, you can be a complete beginner with no trading experience, a part-timer looking to "level up" with machine learning and other tools, or a seasoned veteran moving away from the mental stresses and volume limitations of discretionary. I'll show you how.
I'm Kris Longmore, the founder of Robot Wealth
After a 10-year engineering career, I became a hedge fund quant and later consulted with Asia-Pacific’s biggest fund managers on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Now, I'm a partner and shareholder of a proprietary trading firm, as well as the man behind Robot Wealth.
Hundreds of frustrated algo traders have become profitable — now you can make money with algos too.
Recently, we began asking why most of our new members come to Robot Wealth STILL asking foundational questions, even after buying other algo books and courses in the past:
Even after paying for other training, most new members haven't even made their first live trade yet, let alone made trading their primary income source. The 2% who have always have trouble scaling their algo portfolio and building the kind of equity that would set you up for life.
Other sources aren't teaching you in a way you can go and use today — beginner, part-timer or seasoned trader level.
That's why Robot Wealth exists, to solve the same problems we all share when starting out on the algo journey, and to finally make you a (more) profitable trader, with the ability to trade full-time eventually if you want to.
Algo trading went from a distant fantasy, to my primary income source and dream job
....I knew something bad was happening, but I was too unprepared and unguided to pull the plug when I should have.
That might look like a good equity curve, but let me explain how "going solo" cost me $4956 in profit.
Eager to try out a new strategy I'd worked hard on for ages, I put up $5k equity, enough to make some worthwhile returns.
I was right. With aggressive position sizing, a lot of early trades went my way...
...after 3 months my $5000 grew to $17562 — my overconfidence grew with it. Big mistake.
Surprisingly, the strategy started to sink and I had no safety net in place.
Panicked and losing money, I started tweaking the parameters, adding new assets to the portfolio, and making all sorts of daily changes to get the thing working again — everything an inexperienced trader would do.
Eventually, my strategy was so "dilute" it never worked again.
It cost me $4956 over five frustrating months to realize it was time to admit defeat and exit.
I had no one to ask for help, and no guide for reference.
Like you, I know how it feels to sit and tinker with a strategy without ever trading it — or worse, to tinker with it while it's trading real money — and to doubt every line of code you write and every edge you think you have. Not to mention trying to "understand" market behaviour.
It's even more frustrating when you get stuck before you really start.
Robot Wealth was created to pack over 20 years of combined trial-and-error experience into one digestible place, so you can avoid the common rookie mistakes when trading as a side project.
Robot Wealth is your ticket to fast-track this learning curve and trade profitably sooner, safer and with more fun
Fast forward a few years after that trade — plus many tough lessons — and I'm building algorithms that do this:
From slowly losing $4956 in profit, to turning $10k into $18k in five days, the whole point of Robot Wealth is to quickly and smoothly bridge this gap between risk-prone beginner and a confident algo trader who can:
Besides making them profitable, we've helped everyone from beginners to hedge fund veterans master:
Time to Code
Trade profitably between work or studies. Access ready-built content and code you can "cherry pick" and use in your strategies to trade in less time.
Forget constant sidetracking. Learn to laser-in on the strategy best suited to each market opportunity and code profitable algos over and over again.
Discretionary trading is always an emotional rollercoaster. Algos remove the urge to "over-engineer" your trading — making you more profitable, scalable and sane.
It's annoying how many books and courses assume you know a ton already. Advanced equity growth requires advanced strategies, but first you need to master the right basics.
What if YOU could easily gain these skills — as well as meet likeminded friends and build your wealth-growing portfolio — and go on to algo trade full-time quicker, easier and more enjoyably?
