LongShortSignal.com is a newly launched fintech platform that provides free and premium quantitative trading signals to investors everywhere. We use state of the art quantitative techniques employed by the world's top hedge funds, and are lifting these models from the "smoke cloud" they normally live under in order to make their daily directional (long or short) investment signals available to you.
We know from experience that financial research is often inherently biased and only accessible to large institutional investors. Besides such information assymetry, rising market complexity is making it incrementally harder for smaller investors (whether retail or advisors/small investment firms) to compete against institutional quantitative and algorithmic traders. We are driven by a belief that these quantitative signals should be made available to a broader audience of investors rather than just the financial elites, to level the playing field if you will.
Our motto is that signals speak louder than words. We make our models' calls available in a minimalistic and transparent way: our models update daily and pump out long or short signals for the growing list of assets that we cover. On any given day our models may for instance tell you to be long the Nikkei, short gold and neutral on Bitcoin. We keep track of how well historical calls have worked out and welcome you along on our journey of assessing which models have higher "win rates" than others. We believe that intelligent and consistent implementation of our signals will help you beat the market, as we showcase ourselves on a daily basis in our model portfolio.
Our models are the quantitative engine behind LSS. We make use of a variety of techniques that have proven to be effective and are well-tested in the industry, including Markov regime switching models and other more sophisticated machine learning techniques. An investor who invested $1000 in US stocks in 1990 and followed our signals would have ended up with $34,000, while a simple buy and hold portfolio returned $16,000. An investor in Bitcoin would have outperformed in each of the preceding few years, including the gigantic 2017 bull run.
Our models have a short to medium-term focus and best align with a similar investment horizon. For instance, our stocks model gave approximately 5 different trading signals over the course of 2019, alternatively suggesting to go either long or short or to stay out of markets entirely. We think this is a desirable quality as it allows you to avoid responding to smaller bumps and only provides signals when real change is happening. On occasion different signals can be given in a matter of days as markets experience bouts of uncertainty, though historically our signals have on average often been maintained for weeks. Being able to estimate the prevailing market regime and staying the course (whether long, short or out entirely) despite positive and negative days is one of the key strengths of our approach. In particular, our models are good at picking up on shifts in momentum.
We currently offer free signals on Bitcoin, stocks and government bonds and will keep making these available in a transparent way. We complement these with a number of bespoke models that are available to premium subscribers. Our full model offering currently includes:
