About the Session

Is it possible to build a profitable trading model, using no historical data, no fundamental data, no stop loss and no target price? This presentation aims at introducing a potentially new way of approaching market analysis which is currently only applied by futures trading professionals.

Quantitative Analysis is traditionally based on historical data, which can be analyzed visually in a chart or mathematically using time series analysis. There is however no reason for this to be a limitation.

Using the information found in the term structure of futures markets we can extend our quant toolkit and broaden our scope. The key point of this presentation will be to investigate if there is a predictive value in this term structure information and if we can trade based on nothing but this curve.
