Quant Insight (Qi), a quantitative financial market analytics and trading insights provider, announced the launch of iQbyQi, a new product empowering retail traders in Europe and the Middle East with institutional-grade analytics.
iQbyQi uses a cloud-based AI “market brain” which analyses millions of data points in real time, understands how they are all connected to market prices, highlights opportunities and risks, then broadcasts ‘insights and analytics’ tailored specifically to individual traders.
Mahmood Noorani, Co-Founder and CEO for Quant Insight commented, “Key information moves markets. It’s all connected and overwhelming and it is impossible for the human brain to parallel process all this data and information. Institutional investors have always had access to cutting-edge technology, tools and resources such as Qi. However, the trend towards democratization is accelerating and the launch of iQbyQi designed for individual traders is another key marker on that path.
“iQbyQi, has levelled the playing field, offering retail traders a real opportunity to make better investment decisions. Individual investors now have access to a new level of insight and analysis backed by AI, machine learning and data science. Armed with this unique insight into the macro-forces driving asset prices, individual investors will be better equipped to identify key market opportunities and risks. This is a far cry from the myriad of subjective, conflicting, and often confusing opinions and comments that flood retail investors every minute.”
Individual traders are becoming a greater force in financial markets. Indeed, this trend accelerated over the Covid 19 outbreak in 2020. According to a recent Charles Schwab survey, 15 per cent of all retail investors began investing in 2020, and retail investors’ share of total equities trading volume is now approaching 25 per cent, up from 20 per cent in 2020, and 10-15 per cent the previous decade. In fact, by March 2021, retail trading accounted for almost as much as mutual funds and hedge funds combined.
