AbleMarkets Aggressive HFT Index: Longer Hold Times + Execution Delays Using Adj Close Reference Data
  • In real life portfolio management operations, the same day execution of positions may not be feasible for several reasons:

  • We test long-range strategies based on the moving averages and trends in the AHFT index and the corresponding impact on the equities using formal Adj Close data from Yahoo! Finance to avoid any data ambiguities.
  • We find that all Russell 3000 stocks, but stocks priced at $25/share or below in particular, respond well to the moving average of the AHFT data.
  • We obtain 90%+ average returns per annum with Sharpe ratios of 2.5 and higher.

Momentum and Mean-Reversion with AbleMarkets Aggressive HFT Index
  • In the short term (1-5 trading days), HFTs drive momentum in prices of financial instruments. In the longer term (10-20 trading days), HFT behavior triggers a reversal in prices.
  • Momentum and reversals are two of the most important aspects of trading. It's crucial to be able to identify when a trend is starting so you can hop on board, and equally important to know when a trend has ended so you can get out before things go too far.
  • The AbleMarkets Aggressive HFT Index tracks flows generated by high frequency traders as a proportion of overall market flows. This index will help you determine when HFTs are driving the market and identify potential momentum or reversal opportunities.

AbleMarkets Institutional Activity Predicts 5-, 10-, 20 and 60-Day Beta

Abstract: Beta is commonly used in portfolio management, hedging and other risk management, options trading and more. In this paper, we show that market-microstructure derived identification of institutional flows are highly predictive of future beta realizations computed out-of-sample over 5-, 10, 20- and even 60-days ahead. We present the results of the predictability analysis along with a sample use case: a successful market-neutral strategy utilizing the analysis. We find that AbleMarkets institutional activity, both buy and sell, the difference in AbleMarkets Aggressive HFT activity and the security in-sample return are highly predictive of future beta realizations. Prior betas are not predictive of future betas in most cases. The sample risk-neutral portfolio built with AbleMarkets Institutional Activity index and AbleMarkets Aggressive HFT index generates over 50% per annum in all market conditions, including the COVID crash.
