Trade Academy Scanner Review.
The Trade Academy Scanner is a new concept towards using algorithms and automated trading for Indian Retail stock traders.
This platform is useful for non experienced traders who wants to trade based on back-tested strategies. The programmers of The Trade Academy Scanner are transparent with the strategies they use on the algorithms. This makes it easier for the subscribers to analyse the setup and improve their own trading skills at the same time. Since they have made the strategies transparent, you can be sure that you are not trading on some random signals. Since you also know the strategy you can double check on charts for errors before initiating the trades.
The convenience to place Buy and Sell orders directly from the platform through your upstox trading account is productive.
For a beginner trader, some of the strategies used in the algorithm looks illogical as they are mostly counter trend. Like shorting a gap up stock on market open and trading against the previous day’s up move, these are setups many traders are not used to traditionally . However, The programmers have back-tested these strategies and proved they do work. Also the risk levels for each strategy are clearly defined by the programmers before initiating the trade.
From The Trade Academy forum, it was noted that the within very short time the programmers keeps modifying the algorithms by adding new conditions and naming it version 2, 3 etc. This affects the confidence of paid subscribers who wants to follow one strategy over a reasonable period of time. Hopefully the programmers will realize this and stop creating this confusion for subscribers.
The Trade Academy team have done a good job with The new Trade Academy Scanner Platform concept.
The pricing of 1500 p.m sounds reasonable. This makes it easier for anyone to try it out for a month and decide for themselves.
The Trade Academy has also started a forum for The Trade Academy Scanner users, you can read through them to explore more on this subject.
