Welcome to Vanstone Trading - this website is dedicated to the education of Systems Traders.
I am both an academic and a trader. As an academic, I have a PhD in Computational Finance, and I keep up to date with, and contribute to, the latest research on trading systems and theory. I lecture on trading systems design and implementation at international conferences, and I publish my work in international journals. As a trader, I know what works in the real-world, and have developed a number of successful systems of my own. I also work as a consultant to a boutique funds management business.
I teach a methodology for creating and testing trading systems that was largely created as part of my own PhD thesis. To create trading systems, I believe it is necessary to know what you are doing, use the correct tools, and follow a well defined methodology.
To find out more about me, or the methods I use, please feel free to spend some time on my website. Let me know if you have any questions, or if you feel my courses or systems might be right for you.
