  A detailed model of the futures trading process

Quantego’s dynamic hedging model consists of a price model and a decision model:

  • The price model captures (a) the dynamic evolution of the price forward curve, (b) randomness in renewable production, and (c) spot price mean reversion and price spikes.
  • The decision model (a) anticipates future portfolio rebalancing when new contracts will become tradable, (b) accounts for varying liquidity of contracts over time, and (c) respects institutional order limits and hedge targets.

  A ready-to-use graphical user interface

The model is available as ready-to-use yet highly customizable software solution deployed through QUASAR® Cloud.

Users can import and manage input data, execute optimization runs, inspect and analyze trading strategies, create interactive charts and reports, as well as export result data and easily share it across the organization.
