Investor's pain point

At this stage, the total number of people investing in digital currencies has reached tens of millions of people, most of whom are involved in investment in the form of retail investors. Most participants do not have a complete trading strategy when investing in digital currency. In the face of price fluctuations in the secondary market, they do not know when to buy and sell, resulting in frequent losses. Quantitative transactions in the digital currency market just address investor concerns and provide them with solid returns. In real life, investors often have difficulty applying quantitative trading strategies to actual digital currency investments because of various conditions. In the face of ordinary investors and quantitative trading investors, we have summarized their troubles: The troubles of ordinary investors can reach thousands of digital currency currencies that can be traded on secondary market exchanges worldwide. The resulting deal is nearly 10,000. At the same time, there are more than a hundred exchanges around the world, and each exchange has different transaction currencies and pairs. For ordinary investors, it is difficult for them to monitor the price of several exchanges at the same time. At the same time, because of their limited ability to acquire information and data and build models, this poses a significant obstacle to the construction and use of quantitative trading strategies. Quantifying the troubles of trading investors For investors with a certain quantitative trading base, it is difficult to implement quantitative trading models and complete back testing. Because the trading interfaces of different exchanges are different, it is difficult for investors at this stage to develop a common interface based on their own capabilities. It is used to collect data from various platforms and complete strategic transactions. It is difficult for links to utilize existing resources to achieve cross-market and cross-transaction. arbitrage.

Digital currency arbitrage

With the rapid increase in the popularity of the digital money market in recent years, people's willingness to invest in this field has become stronger. Digital currency has the characteristics of global circulation, attracting investors from all over the world, but individual investors are not profitable. In the 7X24-hour digital currency trading market, because of the large number of retail investors, the large number of trading currencies and the diversification of exchanges, the quantitative trading strategy is very suitable for such a market environment where price conduction is lagging or even distorted. And because there is an exchange rate difference between the trading pairs, there are also currency differences between hundreds of exchanges, which creates a huge arbitrage space. However, ordinary investors often become victims of market volatility because they do not have available quantitative trading investment tools. Looking at the digital currency market, there is no mature professional platform at this stage to help investors conduct quantitative transactions. Under such an opportunity, we have established the Blue Ocean Global Quantitative Trading platform.

Blue Ocean Global Quantitative Trading is a one-stop quantitative trading platform for the digital currency market. We will use our tools and strategies to easily complete quantitative transactions and help investors achieve sound investment returns.

What is a quantitative transaction

Quantitative trading is a future investment trend. Quantitative trading refers to the use of procedures to execute trading strategies and place orders. Compared with traditional fundamental analysis and technical analysis rules, quantitative investment mainly relies on data and models to find investment targets and investment strategies. Different from traditional investment methods, quantitative investment does not rely on personal feelings to manage assets, but appropriately reflects investment ideas, intuition and other factors in the quantitative model through the code, using computers to help the human brain process a large amount of information, and help investors summarize the induction. Market rules. Compared with subjective investment, quantitative investment strictly implements the investment advice given by the quantitative investment model, and the investment strategy implemented through the program will not be interfered by investor sentiment. The computer can quickly respond to the market through quantitative analysis of data, and can avoid the deviation caused by human negligence and laziness, thus overcoming many human weaknesses, such as greed and luck.

Because the data required to quantify investment is even larger, the ability of the human brain to process information is extremely limited. Faced with a huge market, quantitative investment models can rely on computers to analyze more data and capture more investment opportunities than human subjective investment strategies. The advantage of quantitative investment strategy itself is that it can clearly describe various investment concepts in different economic environments and different market environments. The United States has more than 30 years of history in quantitative trading or quantitative investment. According to Bloomberg's data, as of November 4, 2008, the total assets of 1,184 quantitative funds managed reached US$184.8 billion, an average annual growth rate of 20% compared to 1988's 21 quantitative fund management assets of US$8 billion. %, while the non-quantitative fund growth rate for the same period is only 8%. Today, ten years later, 60% of the orders in the securities market are issued by the program.
