Advanced Statistical Analysis

Optuma 64bit introduces two advanced statistical charts, Regression Analysis and Frequency Distribution Charts. Both of these are designed to help us determine the range of expected returns, how they may be correlated to dependent variables and what our realistic expectations should be. In this session we will be examining these charts and having a look at the theory behind them.

What’s New in Optuma

We are taking a different path this week as we explore some of the new features of Optuma. We are always working on new tools, features and time-saving ideas. 

Optex Bands

In this webinar we take a look at the revolutionary Optex Bands tools that are included in Optuma. This is one of the most powerful mean reversion techniques available. We explain how it is constructed and show some examples of how it is used.

Signal Testing – 3

In this third session on Signal Testing, we combine multiple strategies with practical examples. Tests Include:

  1. VBSR Reward and Risk with Optex Bands Trend.
  2. RRG Headings in the Lagging Quadrant.
  3. January Barometer on Dow Jones.

Signal Testing – 2

In this session we continue our exploration into the Optuma Signal Tester and how you can use it to build better strategies. We also have a look at Profits and Targets to see what effect they really have. We talk about the dangers of traditional backtesting from a quantitative point of view.

Signal Testing – 1

So much of the research work we are doing at Optuma centres on the Signal Tester. In this session, Mathew Verdouw, CMT, CFTe takes you through the process of coming up with an idea, how to code it, and how to create a full Quantitative test. 

Note: We had some audio issues on this one, but it gets better!

Volatility-Based Trading

In this session we are joined by Kirk Northington, CMT, the man who wrote the book on Volatility-Based Technical Analysis. The module that Kirk and Carson Dahlberg, CMT put together is one of the most amazing toolkits we have seen. Kirk explains why Volatility is so important for every trader and portfolio manager to consider, and the journey he took from control systems design to building the VBSR tools.


In this webinar on Relative Rotation Graphs® (RRGs), we focus on two main areas:

  1. How we can monitor a portfolio using RRGs.
  2. How to perform RRG-based Stock Selection.

We also briefly explain the theory behind RRGs and what do to when you are working with multiple Asset Classes.

Setting up a Dashboard

In this video, Mathew Verdouw, CMT, CFTe, the founder of Optuma, demonstrates how you can quickly and easily set up a powerful Dashboard of a group of securities.

One of the best things about Optuma is that it’s a blank canvas that’s super flexible. This session shows how you can quickly take that blank canvas and create your own financial dashboard with everything that’s important to you.
