Trading algorithms make the job of investing easier by taking human emotions out of the equation. You will not have to sell your stocks or equity mutual funds in panic because a software will calculate your risk profile and tell you where to invest.
Also consider the hours you spend analyzing multiple companies. It is very tiring work for the human brain going through data sheet after data sheet. What if a software could analyze hundreds of companies for you ?
The future is here
An algorithm can use hundreds of data points and scan the entire stock market according to the target criteria which is not possible for a human.
That is why the big institutions first started using trading algorithms and now this power is also available to Indian stock investors in the form of Angel broking Arq.
Features of ARQ
Invest Easy and earn better
No Minimum Investment
All strategies are optimized to give the best returns over a 1 year period.
Let’s look at an indicative strategy:
Holding Period: The current strategy has a 1 month holding period after which you will be notified whether to retain the stocks or switch to a new set of stocks.
Market Cap: Large-Cap
No. of Stocks recommended: 3
Over a period of time there will be several strategies which may have different holding periods, market capitalization and no. of stocks recommended.
Going forward in this FAQ section the questions are answered in reference to the above strategy.
ARQ is a disciplined stock investment strategy. Unlike other advisory products, ARQ’s stock advice works at a portfolio level, designed to keep you invested 365 days a year in the Top 3 best quality stocks.
ARQ’s strategy has been optimized to give the best performance over a 1 year period. Due to the volatile nature of stocks, daily/weekly/monthly returns can tend to fluctuate, so the ideal recommended investment duration is 12 months.
ARQ is an advisory product & not a PMS product. There is no enrollment fee or minimum committed investment. Once you receive the recommendations, if you wish to you can go ahead with the recommendations or decide not to.
Without ARQ’s advice you might end up buying under-performing MF schemes as the traditional methods of MF selection have proven to be inadequate:
- In last 5 years, Top 10 MF schemes gave 14% returns while Bottom 10 schemes gave 5.1% returns.
- Size didn’t matter. The 5 largest schemes in 2013 were not even in the Top 50 performance charts over the next 3 years.
- Past performance did not equal future performance. Top 5 schemes between 2006-11 were nowhere near the top between 2011-16. In fact they lagged behind the 2011-16 top performers by more than 30%.
- Holding the same scheme for years at a time was not the ideal strategy. Over the last 4 years, only one scheme held onto its Top 3 position for 2 consecutive years, while ten other schemes featured in the Top 3 only once in the last 4 years.
ARQ offers recommendations for mutual funds across various categories such as Largecap, Midcap, Smallcap, Multicap & ELSS funds
ARQ’s investment strategy for Mutual Funds is designed to work best in a 1 year time frame. You must hold your Mutual Fund schemes for 1 year.
After 1 year, you will receive a notification intimating the list of Top 2 Mutual Fund schemes. If some or all of the schemes differ from the ones you are currently holding, then you must sell your existing holdings and buy the newly recommended mutual funds.
No, you cannot. ARQ is available exclusively for Angel Broking customers. To use ARQ, you have to open a Demat Account with Angel Broking (which takes about 1 Hour if you have your documents ready).
Once your Angel Broking Demat Account is active you can access & use ARQ on the same day.
