Guideline to deploy an algo portfolio

How it work

What is an algo portfolio?

An algo portfolio is a type of investment portfolio that incorporates multiple independent trading algorithms to manage and execute trades in various markets and assets, such as stocks, commodities, and forex.

Each algorithm in the portfolio is assigned a different weighting depending on its performance and the overall investment strategy. The concept is similar to a traditional investment portfolio or a fund of funds (FOF), but it uses sophisticated algorithms for trading decisions. For quantitative traders, an algo portfolio is often preferred as it allows for better risk diversification.
