Approach to trading

RIMAR’s investment strategies are based on multiple layers of analysis to filter and identify potential trades. Algorithms and AI drive the process to allow almost immediate analysis, filtering and trading. Algorithms incorporate technical analysis, multiple analysis, fundamental analysis and wisdom of the crowd (trend analysis). Only trades with a high probability of success are entered. Stop losses are used on every trade to prevent large losses.

There are currently 4 live strategies 3 of which are available to the public.

Fund A

This algorithmic strategy employs the use of artificial intelligence, combined with deep learning. The algorithms forecast market movements in liquid equity instruments. The strategy then utilizes these forecasted market movements to enter pair trades that utilize a combination of both ETFs and stock options. This combination is particularly utilized to ensure that investors earn premium income. Adjustments are continuously made to the existing strategy to make sure that all pairs remain in sync. To do this strategy has had a 85% success rate, and has produced returns exceeding those of the S&P500 Index since its inception.


Using a base of artificial intelligence, algorithms combine fundamental and technical analysis. These algorithms offer highly detailed trend analysis that identifies S&P 500 stocks that are expected to outperform their peers. Once the stocks have been identified by the algorithms, options are sold on the stocks, helping earn option premiums. These options are often held for 5 days, with no individual stock trade representing more than 4% of the portfolio. This strategy has achieved an exceptional success rate of 90% (as of September 2019).


This strategy is based around the idea that prices of equity investments drop faster than they rise, with the prices being range bound over a short period of time. Through detailed algorithms, RIMAR is able to ascertain the financial instruments that provide a minimum trading volume which extends towards the higher end of the price range, while also being expected to fall over the short term. Having a short position or a short exposure through options is entered on the various identified instruments, generally being held for a period that ranges between one day to a maximum of six weeks.

Global Macro

The Global Macro strategy involves the analysis of various trends and shifts in major currency pairs. To
assist in developing a strong analysis, the strategy studies and considers resistance and/or support
levels, market signals, trend lines, market cycles and various other indicators. The trading is not
dependent on expectations around major political and macro announcements or events.


Trading via algorithms means that trading strategies are less impacted by behavioural biases, which human traders are frequently prone to.
