As a trader or investor, you want to turn money into more money.
In our newest quant trading course, you will learn "what works" for the retail trader.
How do you make money trading in the highest probability, most effective way?
Most trading advice does not address this question seriously enough. Either it smothers you in meaningless platitudes (don't fight the trend, don't risk more than 2% of your account on any trade), or it misses the mark in the other direction - being something that only a full-time professional trader and coding genius could realistically implement.
In this quant trading course, we concentrate on the simple things that work: the things that turn money into more money.
We are full-time quant traders, but we don't expect you to be.
We believe that trading skill is less important than choosing the right games to play. We have put together a simple, rules-based trading portfolio of 5 high quality trading edges that anyone can trade.
Reserve your space now.
What works in trading. Explained simply. No bulls#!t.
We share techniques and trades that we have discovered through years of quantitative analysis and trading, and we put them in a program that can be implemented simply by anyone.
We believe that trading skill is less important than choosing the right games to play.
In this course, we show you the right games to play. The easiest games. The least competitive games. The ones you are most likely to succeed at.

"It would take years to grasp these concepts via books and coding...."
"Bootcamp is a live trading algo development workshop. If I were to read books and learn to code by myself, it would take years to grasp the concepts that are presented in the Bootcamp. For example, we learn about "parameter space", the steps of developing strategies or not to over rely on the backtest results.
Kris and James are showing us how professional quants and traders develop their strategies and both are not hiding any tricks that make money in this Bootcamp. Retail trading is tough and I am glad I participated this Bootcamp so that my learning has accelerated. "

"It's like working at a quant hedge fund....."
"RW Bootcamps are the best thing going in trade education I have found. Going through the whole process start to finish lets you get a real feel for what goes into a successful strategy. Plus you get to have team generated code at the end that is better than what any of us could do on our own!
It's like working at a quant hedge fund if you could use the code yourself! Highly recommend Robot Wealth to anyone looking to put time into developing this skill set!"

"Bootcamp is an amazing ride that brought my trading skills to the next level"
"My understanding of how to theorize, research, test and develop new trading strategies has advanced tremendously – in any market. I learned a lot of new stuff from our Robots in Chief as well as from other dedicated and talented members, and I feel much more confident in developing my own ideas both in R and directly in Zorro.
This also inspired me to put together a trading framework that let's trade multiple strategies in one Zorro script, which is a powerful tool that can potentially save trading costs (one of the few really certain outcomes you can and should try to control when embracing the mayhem). All in all this Bootcamp was an amazing ride that brought my trading skills to the next level!"
Enrolments will open 26th April 2021 and remain open until midnight (GMT+1) on 30 April 2021.
If you are passionate about the markets and are ready to work, then joining us may be the best decision you'll make in your trading career.
Don't let the limitations and frustration of solo trading drive you away from trading for good. Join us and enjoy the potential for success the markets have to offer with others who share your passion and goals.
You'll gain an understanding of the markets that is usually only gained after decades of expensive trial, error and failure. Your view of what trading is and how to operate your business will shift dramatically as you progress through each topic.
Here's what you'll be able to achieve with Trade like a Quant:
You'll not only see how we build strategies that allow us to trade for a living. You'll gain the foundational skills, processes and tools required to build a robust trading portfolio that you can scale from zero. You'll see exactly what NOT to do if you want trading to be financially rewarding for years to come.
You'll discover the power of smart execution; combining edges to create more reliable returns at the portfolio level. Instead of hunting for 'perfect' edges, we'll teach you to be agile and systematic in your research. Bootcamp is a hands-on experience that will get you thinking and trading the quant way.
You don’t just get stuff to trade. You can adopt the approach and intuition we’ve used to make trading our full-time careers for 20+ years combined. Our approach is simple, lean and effective. You'll get to copy our approach as we build our systematic strategies, so you can stop guessing at what works and finally move the needle.
You can't do the work of a whole trading floor alone. Many solo traders have no one to share their work with or to collaborate on new ideas. Trading should be fun first and foremost, otherwise you won't last. Here, you'll join a team who share your passion, goals and workload so you can win more quickly.
"I’ve traded every day for the last 16 years. I spent the first 10 in institutional finance and tech, then founded a data analytics and prop trading firm in New Zealand. I work in the RW community every day, turning the our ideas into profitable trades."
"After a 10-year engineering career, I became a hedge fund quant and later consulted with Asia-Pacific’s biggest fund managers on AI and ML. Now, I'm a partner and shareholder of a prop trading firm, as well as one of the men behind Robot Wealth."
"If you're coming from a retail background then buckle up. Trading is tough and you're likely unaware of what real trading is. You may also be unaware just how much easier it is having a community of pros and like James and kris on hand practically 24/7.
I went from getting scammed by FX signal providers to trading many FX alphas built by us in the community.
Trading is complex, involving multiple disciplines, but stick with the guidance of the community and you'll make it."

"Trading is the hardest game in the world but, thankfully I don't have to take on the challenge alone. With a community of 300+ highly motivated and intelligent members, you get to develop trading strategies relying on quantitative research techniques that professionals use.
Joining Robot Wealth has not only made me a better trader but, a better data scientist as well."

"Bootcamp is a full-frontal introduction to systematic trading. You won't find this anywhere else without spending years trawling through scientific and mathematical papers.
Kris and James are welcoming, inclusive, fun and literally happy to share their lifetime's of work."

Course feedback directly from past Robot Wealth participants
Even more comments lifted straight from our Slack community
Bootcamp participants have shaved years off the steep learning curve that comes with trading — and they're having a blast doing it as part of a like-minded team!
But Trade like a Quant is not the right fit for everyone — trading is hard and YOU have to work hard too!
We keep our approach to trading simple, but that doesn't mean it's easy or completely without risk. You will lose money sometimes. That's part of the trading game. To win, you need to make more money than you lose, over and over again.
We don't want anyone who will quit as soon as they realize trading is hard work and takes time. Trading isn't a get rich quick scheme. It's not a "market hack".
Please, only join us if you have an obsession for the markets, are open-minded, realistic about what is possible, and can commit to this journey. If that's you and you are excited to get your hands dirty in the markets with us, let's get started!
Absolutely! We built this course specifically because we were tired of digging through dense books just to find the fundamental skills and approach we needed to start. This is the dream resource we wished we had when starting our trading journeys. Now it's yours.
Doing a course with a class of likeminded eager wannabe traders is the most efficient way we know of to go from little trading experience to a trader with the approach, tools and strategies that can grow your capital.
Whether you are more comfortable spectating in your first course, or want to contribute as much as you can, you're welcome to join us. So long as you are willing to put in the work.
Definitely! Welcome to a new world of trading. Discretionary trading requires countless hours of back-breaking chart time every day just to keep up, this can really suck the fun out of trading. That's not to mention the problems when it comes to scaling your portfolio and the emotional rollercoaster that comes with manual trading.
Many of our members who've discovered quantitative techniques are not only more successful, but are less emotionally reactive and have rediscovered their passion of trading.
No! Part of the beauty of Robot Wealth courses and the community is that you get to leverage the skills of your new team in order to accomplish the shared goal, without having to spend months learning each skill yourself. Not all of us are great coders, but we are better at other tasks and can contribute to the projects in those other ways.
If you are interested in understanding the research behind the edges we present, we will make that available to you. But you don't need to. We share what works so you can implement it straight away
We release the written and video content week by week. We have found this to be the most effective way to keep all course participants moving through the course material , working together and collaborating in the Slack community concurrently.
Live webinars will be held weekly to recap the content and answer any questions that may have come up along the way.
The power of our community is that it's packed with so much experience that it will cut the learning curve massively — so it won't be anywhere near as time-consuming as doing this yourself.
We recommend 3-4 hours per week to keep on top of the course material, assignments and to be involved in the community - but you can get more involved if you wish.
The other great thing about our community is accountability. We keep each other humble, help each other, and are more likely to contribute a little bit every day, rather than letting trading slide off your radar completely. Consistency is key, we'll help you achieve it.
The course is taught through a combination of videos, webinars, presentation slides, written materials and our Trade like a Quant Slack workspace. We find this combination works well for those on a very tight schedule who struggle for free time, so they can stay on top of things more easily. People are available on Slack to help you all around the clock.
You'll never be left with your hand waving in the air.
Our Slack communities are a hive of activity. You'll not only get help and insights from your pro trader instructors Kris and James along the entire journey but from your fellow teammates throughout the course.
Being an international community, you will always have other community members around to talk to.
Questions are also addressed in weekly live webinars. These sessions are always recorded and posted online for you to review if you're unable to make the live session.
No. To quote our RW mantra: "Trade broad, trade small, trade humble".
Of course you need money to make money, but we recommend traders start small.
That being said, our goal is to make your money grow, and as long as you have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with a small retail-level account, you're in great company!
That's fine! It would mostly be redundant, not because what we do is basic, but because you simply don't need expensive setups to do well.
We assume you have a brokerage account and can trade stocks and ETFs.
The tools we give you, and the tools your broker makes available, are all you need.
We strongly believe that joining this course could be the most impactful decision you'll make in your trading journey. You'll get the fundamental approach, skills and teamwork that has turned our passion for trading into life-long careers. But whether you join us or not, we hope your journey is filled with passion and the rewards you deserve.
-Kris, James and Team
