How have we arrived at this insight:

The conditions that led to similar insights previously have just been triggered in the market, making this ‘insight’ relevant right now.

While sorting through the mountains of data, our data engine detected a statistically relevant historical relationship between this ‘insight’ and the asset. Our data engine aims to optimize between statistical relevant relationships (high accuracy), situations that are relevant right now (entry timing) and ideal trade horizon (exit timing).

Based on the statistical significance of previous returns in similar situations, a high score indicates a more statistically relevant expected ‘future’ move for this particular asset. After calculating various scenarios, we found the optimal trade horizon for this particular relationship to be 3 months.

We calculate the median return for those previous situations (median is calculated by taking the ‘middle’ value, the value for which half the observations are larger and half are smaller) to determine the -3.5% estimated target return.
