FAQ for mPower Algorithm Program (MPAP)

A. DESCRIPTION

The MPAP is a state-of-the-art trading program and system under the highly elite Malacca Securities Algorithm Division.

The Algorithm Division houses the elite data scientists, programmers and proprietary traders that work on the proprietary algorithm trading desk of Malacca Securities.

We use sophisticated, complex and specialised mathematical and statistical algorithm and large-scale data analytics of price, volume and volatility movements in the whole market and individual stocks to identify trading opportunities in any stocks and reap returns from their timely entry and exit in the stock price.
The objective of the MPAP is to provide a comprehensive and holistic resources to elite traders in trading the market which include assessing the risk and reward of the local and international markets, the different sectors of the market and the different asset classes underlying the synergy and correlation to the individual stock picks of the MPAP.

At its core, the Malacca Securities Algorithm Division utilises a complex and comprehensive Master Algorithm program that is designed to service the usage and requirements of large local and global institutional funds with complex and comprehensive needs. To help the common traders wishing to trade at the level and skill of the institutions, a small part of the Master Algorithm dealing with individual stock picks is extracted to power the stock trading picks of the MPAP.

The immense power of the MPAP for the common traders is that the strategy, system and risk-reward assessment used are the same for those that power the trading for the large institutional funds under the Master Algorithm.

The elite subscribers to the MPAP is thus not just getting a list of individual stock picks but is actually getting a complete system of assessing the broad market conditions (local and globally), risk and reward exposure and other trading factors that will underpin a professional trader’s stock portfolio’s risk and reward exposure.

The elite user of the MPAP will also learn the real art and psychology of trading, the complete education of being a real elite trader and be given the opportunities to network and learn from other top individual and institutional traders in the market, and much more.

It is hoped that the common traders approved into the MPAP will use the opportunities given to them in accessing the resources and materials of the MPAP to not only make trading gains in the market but to advance themselves and graduate into a master trader themselves one day.
It is common knowledge in the market that only 10% of traders (we call them elite traders) make money in the market while the balance 90% of traders (we call them common traders) lose their money trading the market every time, year-in and year-out.

In other words, 10% of the elite traders tend to monopolise all the gains in the market.

Most of these elite traders are actually large institutional funds or market makers (whether we call them private funds/hedge funds/proprietary traders/high-net worth individuals/syndicates/insiders/etc.) and have a large pool of managed or private funds and access to high-technology trading software, research and information.

These group of traders are very well-informed and tend to “know” the stock direction via large volume, first-hand access and quicker reaction to news, making their entry and exit faster and earlier and making their profits almost effortlessly.

Most common traders on the other hand use simple charting and technical analysis tools, research reports and so-called rumours/tips to trade and tend to enter and exit late and at the wrong time with the wrong exposure, making losses most if not all the time.

For the common traders, their tools and efforts do work some time but they all come at a heavy cost of time spent, small wins and poor win ratio, rendering them relying more on luck in the end rather than skill against the elite traders despite their many laborious hours of personal hard work and investment money spent.

Common traders also lack the system and mechanism to track and monitor the factors moving their individual stocks and the market as a whole and are often overworked, misinformed, confused by conflicting research reports and media news and second-guessing their positions most of the time.

Unlike elite traders who are in control of their trading, common traders tend to end up angry, confused, frustrated and dejected at their trades and often quietly exit the market after losing all their capital.
The problems facing a common trader has increasingly multiplied many times over today.

The competition and complexity of trading has risen in the new age.

Consider the actual REAL world of trading and investment today.

The business world is changing with newer companies and businesses in new-age industries replacing the traditional bricks-and-mortar businesses.

And the investment markets are also seeing newer financial technologies (fintech) such as automated investing and trading software, robo-advisers and social media wealth management platforms.

Globalisation and social media have caused markets inter-play and real time news to affect stock prices almost instantly.

Movement in a stock price may have nothing to do with the company itself but rather on events happening on a global scale such as geopolitical or economic or in another asset class such as a commodity or interest rate.

These among other factors are causing volatility to rise in the prices of equity instruments and markets locally and worldwide.

Choppy price movements instead of the traditional straight-line rise or fall are beginning to be the norm, confusing even traditional research and analysis.

In the end, without the resources and skill to track new-age trends and developing factors, the common trader is left to suffer at the hands of the elite traders, who move ahead in and out of the stock first at the right time.
The global and coming future trend for trading and investment houses are to employ data scientists, or "quants," who program ultra-sophisticated algorithms and even self-correcting artificial intelligence (AI) statistical models to predict market trends and pinpoint particular trades.

And this is not your common trading platform charting system.

We are talking cutting edge, state-of-the-art, multi-million-dollar programs that utilise the latest in technological programming to analyse and make sense of millions and billions of bytes of data in seconds to consistently help their traders and investors be ahead of the market.

In the past few years, the trend has been that even fundamental analysis has taken a back seat to algorithm- generated mathematical formulas modelled to eliminate risk about a stock’s short and long-term direction.

Professional fund management firms and newer players into the industry now have systems that not only pick the stocks, but also auto trade completely without human interaction at high-frequency.

These developments further leave the resources and skill gap between the elite traders and the common traders growing wider, making it harder for the common trader to make money against the professional and elite fund traders in the market today.
The simple answer is to use what the elite traders use in terms of their access to resources and skill set. The harder answer is to learn and go through the many years of experience of the elite traders in trading and managing large portfolio of funds.

None of these options are freely available to common traders, who lack the time, resources, skills set, education and precious experience of the elite traders (of which the last can’t even be bought with money).

But under the MPAP, common traders will finally get the chance to see a level playing field for the first time with the elite traders.

Not only will you get the latest trading skill sets and tools to compete with the best of elite traders and technologies out there, you will get them only at a fraction of the cost of what the professional fund management firms are now feverishly spending for the technologies of the future.

However, due to its immense power and to ensure that all clients receive the maximum benefits from all the resources and materials under the MPAP including the ability to participate (and gain) from the stocks highlighted under the Trading Sheet, the number of premier clients approved to the MPAP will be limited under a quota system on a first-come first-admission basis.

In addition, as the MPAP is also accessed by institutional traders, we have to subject the premier clients of the MPAP to the strict confidentiality and compliance rules governing the Terms Of Use of the MPAP materials and content.

As such, the management of Malacca Securities reserves the right to reject the application of any prospective clients deemed not able to comply with the MPAP Terms of Use agreement.

You are advised to refer to the strict MPAP Terms of Use at TOU before you choose to apply for admission into the program.
The MPAP provides guidance and monitoring of COMPLETE entry to exit of individual stock picks in a Trading Sheet that any common trader can just follow or replicate without any prior knowledge of the market, among its many other resources and materials.

While this work fine with most traders, as explained previously, there is so much more resources and materials in the MPAP to provide a comprehensive and holistic resources to elite traders in trading the market.

The MPAP’s aim is to create a small elite base of independent world-class traders with its resources, education and knowledge base provided to its users and to create an exclusive network of such elite traders in the market.

How you intend to use the entire MPAP resources and progress as a common trader to graduate to an elite world-class trader is entirely up to you.

From our experience, some traders will just rely on the Trading Sheet while others will use the immense opportunities given to advance themselves and graduate into a master trader themselves.
Both retail (common traders) and institutional investors (elite traders) can use the exclusive Trading Sheet and other resources presented in the MPAP.

At its origin, the Malacca Securities Algorithm Division utilises a complex and comprehensive Master Algorithm program that is designed to service the usage and requirements of large local and global institutional funds in that it addresses comprehensively the risk and reward of the entire local/global markets and the creation and maintenance of a model portfolio that easily outperform in terms of both absolute and relative returns.

Such institutions’ needs are vastly different to the common traders in terms of their asset size, asset allocation, trading volume, liquidity, the ability and need to cover the whole depth and breadth of the market, the inter-play to global markets, etc. among many other factors.

To help the common traders wishing to trade at the level and skills of the institutions, a small part of the Master Algorithm dealing with individual stock picks has been extracted to power the stock trading picks of the MPAP.

The MPAP is without doubt a boon to common traders who wish to trade and make money like an elite trader while institutional investors will find its materials and standards of use to be highly superior to many of their own in-house trading tools.

B. FEATURES

The MPAP algorithm utilises extensive software and server resources and are designed to filter a large amount of data and information using proprietary mathematical, quantitative and statistical techniques.

Millions of data input points are processed and analysed daily and intra-day, which without the algorithm and technologies involved, would take months to process.

The algorithm uses millions of advanced conditional, related and formatting codings and formulas and its ability to analyse the entire depth and breadth of the market and its interplay with the global markets is to say the least – breathtaking.

The algorithm presents a comprehensive and Integrated strategy for elite traders where all trading strategies in multi-time frames are covered such as sideways, breakout, trend, counter-trend, etc.

All trading picks of the algorithm are formulated to meet a very stringent risk-assessment analysis designed to identify low-risk high-probability reward situations only.

Because it is primarily focused on risk first and reward second, there will be times and days when no trading picks will be highlighted by the algorithm despite scanning the entire breadth and depth of the market.

This could occur when the algorithm detects elevated risks as being present in the individual stock, sector or market, such as when there is a possible change in the overall market trend or when extreme volatility is present in the individual sector of the stock or the stock itself.

The final selection of trades undergoes a further complex filtering of risk-reward assessment criteria by the human element (master traders) in our elite Algorithm Team and hence only select RISK-ADJUSTED instruments can pass through the final process.

We are not only interested in high probabilities trades but only in low-risk high probabilities trades.

The exact composition of the selection algorithm and risk-adjusted system is a copyright and proprietary asset of Malacca Securities and its partners.
The algorithm powering the MPAP is NOT a mechanical trading system.

While the Master Algorithm powering the algorithm used to service the usage and requirements of the large local and global institutional funds with complex and comprehensive needs is more than robust to power a mechanical trading system, it is NOT the intention of the Master Algorithm to be used as a mechanical trading system.

As an extension, the MPAP (which is powered by a small part of the Master Algorithm) is thus NOT a mechanical trading system.

While the individual trading picks are initially selected by the Master Algorithm, these trading picks must cross the human element in that they are further judged and reviewed meticulously by master proprietary traders in the Algorithm Trading division before the final selection is made.

The master proprietary traders in our Algorithm division are specialised proprietary traders on the trading desk who track and trade the market diligently using human trading skill and acumen.

Our proprietary human trading desks employ a number of strategies but broadly they can be categorised into fundamental, technical and event-driven via price arbitrage, index arbitrage, statistical arbitrage, merger arbitrage, volatility arbitrage, global macro trading, etc.

What the algorithm does first-hand is to perform specialised mathematical and statistical algorithm and large-scale data analytics of price, volume and volatility movements in the whole market and individual stocks in a short span of time that would take months and years for a human being to do the same amount of analysis.

The ability of the algorithm to perform various analysis in terms of looking for correlation, diversification, measuring risk and reward, volatility, etc. is also beyond the capability of a human being in the same amount of time.

The trend and technology of the future in the trading and financial world is towards big data, automation, robotic and artificial intelligence (AI).

However, no amount of advancement (at least not yet), not even in the field of AI, would be able to replicate the experience and judgement of a master trader in the trading world.

In fact, the MPAP is so immensely powerful in the sense that it combines the resources and analytical power of BOTH the machine (the algorithm) and human beings (master traders).

In other words, the output of the MPAP through the machine (algorithm) is reviewed by the human being (master traders) and the output of the human being (master traders) is also reviewed by the machine (algorithm) through input back into the algorithm itself by our data scientists and programmers.

This double confirmation is what makes the MPAP so immensely powerful and unique.
It is a typical fallacy among common traders (retailers) that to make good trading gains in the market, the primary (or probably only step to them) is to identify foremost the highest reward stocks in the market.

While this is certainly an attractive proposition, the fact is that 90% of the common traders lose money based on this myth of making money in the market.

This is because in focusing primarily on reward, the risk element is almost ignored and the outcome is typically a total loss of capital in the end as the market is typically a zero-sum game and swing from one end to another in cycles.

Common traders thus always ended in buying at the high and selling at the low as opposed to the adage of buying low and selling high.

In the animal farm analogy below, common traders can be classified into three categories where the first two groups (the sheep and the buffaloes) will typically lose all their capital while the third (the chickens) will never ever make any money but has empty bragging rights – talking good about their ability to predict market movements after-the-fact but will never ever trade or invest beforehand.

Sheep: Beginners and traders who trade at random (based on rumours, tips, price moves, etc.) without regard to trading rules. They lose heavily by not selling at the highs and often at the lows and are often overwhelmed by emotions.

Buffaloes: Greedy traders who aim at unrealistic huge profits, often chasing volatile and high-gain stocks and disapplying money management rules. This group also lose heavily by not selling at the highs and often at the lows and are also overwhelmed by emotions.

Chickens: Out of fear and lack of confidence, this group rarely open trades until signals or prices are out of their reach. They are afraid of making losses (seldom exit their positions until the capital is at decimation point) and are unable to fully understand the concept of risk and reward and trading and making real money in the market.

The algorithm and human element powering the MPAP work in complete reverse of the myth and focus on low-risk high-probability (reward) stocks.

The MPAP will certainly identified high-reward stocks but will only attempt entry picks at the lowest minimum risk possible.

By entering at a certain pre-determined price level (and stopping out at the earliest level if the price action turned out wrong than anticipated), the algorithm is able to let the profit run on strong stocks and cut losses immediately on the weak stocks, ensuring a very healthy winning reward to risk ratio (win ratio).
The answer is NO as it will not be suitable for the majority of traders in the market.

While the Master Algorithm (and in corollary the algorithm powering the MPAP) is more than robust to act as a very profitable stand-alone mechanical trading system, it is not intended to act as one as a mechanical trading system is more suitable to only certain types of traders (typically institutions) which are engaged in large volume or high-frequency trading for example.

For most traders such as retailers and even local institutional traders, there is no point in for example churning out 10 trades daily, making gains in five trades and losing in the balance five but still profit handsomely via a very favourable win ratio (winning amounts far outnumber the losing amounts).

The first main reason boils down to the fact that human beings are unable to replicate the large number of trades effectively and efficiently (unless their trading system is plugged in directly to our algorithm trading system, which is used to power exclusively our own Discretionary Trading for our own proprietary traders in the Malacca Securities Algorithm Division).

The second main reason is due to the emotional factor where most traders are still unable to handle the concept of losing a large number of trades, despite having a handsome net gain among all the trades at the end.

This is where the human element (our master proprietary traders in the Algorithm Division) come in to further filter the best potential trades of the algorithm based on our immense trading experience and acumen.

In addition, as highlighted previously, as our proprietary algorithm is primarily focused on risk first and reward second, there will be times and days in a stretch when no trading picks will be highlighted by the algorithm despite scanning the entire breadth and depth of the market.

This could occur when the algorithm detects elevated risks as being present in the individual stock, sector or market, such as when there is a possible change in the overall market trend or when extreme volatility is present in the individual sector of the stock or the stock itself.

In conclusion, users of the MPAP may typically expect no more than one trading pick a day or several days.

The frequency is determined by the market condition and individual stocks as determined by the algorithm system.
Overtrading is one of the main cause of losses in the market by common traders as they jump in from one stock to another at the wrong time with the wrong exposure almost every time.

Elite traders bide their time and wait for the most opportune low-risk high-probability entry similar to the adage of plucking the low-hanging fruits first. The algorithm has been programmed to work in the same way and it works very well in this manner in delivering low-risk high-probability rewards in selected stocks that display such opportunities.

As such, there will be times when many stocks are picked such as when the market is detected to be in a bullish mode and practically none for a possible stretch of time when the market/sector or individual stocks are displaying a high-risk mode such as when it is nearing the end of a trend or in the midst of a trend turn.

The number of stocks picked by the algorithm is thus a function of the market/sector/individual stocks condition at the prevailing time.

There is no point in trading overwhelmingly against a prevailing trend with a large exposure and losing precious capital in the process.

When the market/sector/individual stocks condition turn in our favour, the algorithm will detect such a situation and this will typically be reflected in the increased number of stocks picked as well in the Trading Sheet.

The algorithm focused on making each investment in each stock counts as opposed to other trading systems which focus on picking a large number of stocks and trying to get a good reward to risk win ratio but at the expense of a poor win rate.

As highlighted in the preceding FAQ, such a system is not suitable for the majority of common traders. The MPAP algorithm thus at its core is a Performance-Based trading system, not a Volume-Based trading system.
Each stock highlighted will be tracked from entry to exit and they will be exited if they hit their stop loss level or trailing stop profit level.

Profit targets are typically given and we may occasionally choose to exit at these profit targets as well and these will be communicated to the elite MPAP users.

Based on historical precedence, the time frame to hold the stocks under the MPAP Trading Sheet typically last from a few days to a few weeks.
While the Master Algorithm can scan the whole breadth and depth of the market at intraday time frame for intraday trading picks, the algorithm powering the MPAP Trading Sheet will only be based on end-of-day market closing prices.

The difference between intraday, and end-of-day entry (which will be at the open of tomorrow’s market opening price), is typically for the former:

a) more trading opportunities as intraday trades can be closed off during the day itself

b) lower entry price

c) and a potentially better exit price.

The majority of traders whether retailers or institutions are not intraday traders and thus are likely to do fine with end-of-day trade picks.

However, Malacca Securities also offers a Discretionary Trading service which is powered exclusively by our Master Algorithm for Institutions and High Net Worth Clients and if you are in need of such a service, please contact our elite proprietary trading team at mpower@malaccasecurities.com.my for a personalised presentation or refer to the details of our mPower Trading Program at mplusonline.blog

Our Discretionary Trading service operates at both intra-day and end-of-day basis for maximum benefits to Institutions and High Net Worth Clients.
The MPAP Trading Sheet highlights stand-alone trading picks based on the algorithm strict risk-adjusted criteria and human review and are designed to work well in whatever market conditions.

However, traders should adjust their overall trading exposure to each individual stock after taking into account their own trading objective and risk assessment and the overall market condition, which will be presented as well to guide the users of the MPAP in their decision-making.

Most common traders lose money by holding trading investment in the wrong stock and compounding it by holding such stocks at the wrong market condition, which almost likely lead to the decimation of their trading capital.

The ability of the MPAP (and Master Algorithm) in assessing the overall market condition locally and globally (apart from just individual stocks) is what makes it so powerful in the eyes of institutions.

In fact, the ability to avoid losing money in the wrong market condition (say in a bear market for long buyers) is MORE IMPORTANT than the ability to pick the right individual stocks for large institutions and portfolio funds as asset allocation is a prime strategy for these groups.

The Master Algorithm (and in extension the MPAP) processes a large amount of data and information using proprietary mathematical, quantitative and statistical techniques covering the entire market breadth and depth in assessing the overall market condition and in this respect, its power to assess the overall market/indices/sector conditions whether locally or globally is virtually unmatched.
Certainly. The Master Algorithm is a very powerful and robust trading system that tracks the entire breadth and depth of the market in all market conditions whether in a bullish or bearish market.

Studies have shown that typically 75% of stocks prices rise in a strong bull market and 90% falls in a strong bear market.

This means that even in a strong and long bear market, 10% of stocks will see their prices rallying to the upside.

The algorithm is designed to perform in any market condition as it is a performance-based system.

Typically, in a long bear market, the algorithm will also identify many sell calls, as well as buy calls for rebound plays in a bear market.
The Trading Sheet under the MPAP is designed to track low-risk high-probability stock setups from entry to exit.

We would expect most elite users to duplicate the Trading Sheet and that would be just fine.

In fact, as the algorithm is designed to be a performance-based system, we would expect most elite users to be very satisfied with its results.

However, as highlighted previously, the MPAP provides a complete and holistic approach to being an elite trader and we encourage all users to use all the resources and materials (apart from the Trading Sheet) for their total benefits.
The core Master Algorithm program is designed to service the usage and requirements of large local and global institutional funds in that it addresses comprehensively the risk and reward of the entire local/global markets and the creation and maintenance of model portfolios that easily outperform in terms of both absolute and relative returns.

But even at the institutional levels, there is no one single model portfolio that fits all as there are various different funds with different objectives such as index funds, equity-only funds, small cap funds, Syariah-compliant funds, etc and different features in terms of risk exposure, stock and sector fundamentals and other requirements, volume and size, liquidity, etc.

As the Master Algorithm cover the entire breadth and depth of the market, its ability to address the various different institutional requirements above are virtually unmatched.

For common traders like retailers, a long term buy-and-hold strategy like those adopted by most institutional funds may not work as well for various reasons such as the lack of fund size of the retailer, lack of diversification reach, inability to withstand market cycles, etc., which are advantages that institutional funds possess.

The creation and maintenance of a proper investment/trading portfolio management system typically adopted by institutional funds also encompasses many other factors such as portfolio objective, risk and reward expectations, asset allocation strategy, correlation and diversification, monitoring and rebalancing, and etc.

Hence, a long term buy-and-hold strategy may not be the appropriate strategy for the majority of common traders, especially during a bear market or in volatile stocks.

For the purposes of the MPAP to serve the majority of common traders’ needs, a small part of the Master Algorithm dealing with individual stock picks has been extracted to power the stock trading picks of the MPAP under the Trading Sheet.

The typical holding period for stocks highlighted under the Trading Sheet in the MPAP could range from a few days to a few weeks and they are typically stand-alone picks.

For reasons highlighted above, most common traders would find the stand-alone trading picks under the MPAP to be more than sufficient for their needs.

However, for some traders who have a longer time frame of trading/investment and who believe that they can replicate the size, model portfolio ability and other advantageous of institutional funds, we occasionally highlight some “longer term” or so-called “buy-and-hold” trading picks under the Model Portfolio Sheet or Hunting Sheet, etc.

However, please note that these picks are primarily designed for institutions and are extracted from analysis materials which are tailored-made for the needs and requirements of institutions.
While we are not able to provide any guarantee, we believe that the algorithm powering the MPAP is more than powerful and robust to make trading gains in any types of market condition whether it is a bull market, a bear market, a bear market rebound or a sideways market.

The algorithm (together with the human element) is programmed to identify stocks making a minimal of 10% upside in a short amount of time while attempting to keep the stop loss level to around 3% on average and the loss rate very low.

However, as buy calls have unlimited upside, there are stocks which run up to more than 50% to 100% gains before triggering their trailing stop loss.

That said, you are advised to understand the risk and reward of trading real money in the market under our Terms of Use at TOU before applying for admission to the MPAP.
Any trading system will make some losses in the market and a trading system that does not make any losses do not exist in the real world of trading.

However, the MPAP algorithm together with its human element identify trading stock under a very stringent risk-adjusted criteria with a dynamic stop loss level that is designed to give both a low stop loss ratio and loss rate.

The Master Algorithm (and in corollary the algorithm powering the MPAP) is at core is also designed for institutions where risk management is itself paramount by both design and law.

In this respect, we believe the MPAP is well-designed to handle the concept of risk and portfolio protection (or preservation of capital) and we are continuously boosting the latest and more robust risk-preservation measures in the Master Algorithm and in our risk policies governing our proprietary traders in the Algorithm Division.

In you are unclear about the risk and reward of trading in the live market, please consult your regulated investment adviser before applying for admission to the MPAP.
The Master Algorithm serving the institutions (and in corollary the algorithm powering the MPAP) identify both low-risk high-probability individual trading BUY and Sell calls.

However, for the purpose of the local market and the majority of traders, the focus of the MPAP is on trading BUY calls even though trading Sell calls will be included in as well.

The trading Sell calls will be useful where long traders may want to liquidate their buy positions in an individual stock at an attractive level or in avoiding buying the particular stock altogether.

In the case of short sell, please note that short selling of individual stocks (where permitted) involve a high degree of risk and you should consult your regulated investment adviser before attempting any short selling trades in the market.
Any type of stocks will be identified by the algorithm powering the MPAP as long as it satisfies the stringent risk-reward criteria of the system.

These may include both consensus stocks (stocks tracked by investment or financial analysts) and non-consensus stocks.

However, during the human element review process (by our master traders in the Algorithm Division), we will be pre-disposed to consensus stocks first followed by non-consensus stocks and thereafter speculative stocks such as thematic stocks or even penny stocks in line with our risk-adjusted criteria.
The MPAP algorithm picks are stand-alone trading picks and are NOT designed to address the needs of a comprehensive trading or fund portfolio management system.

A trading portfolio management system encompasses many other factors such as portfolio objective, risk and reward expectations, asset allocation strategy, correlation and diversification, monitoring and rebalancing, etc.

However, the Master Algorithm is designed to is designed to service the usage and requirements of large local and global institutional funds with complex and comprehensive needs.

Malacca Securities offers a Discretionary Trading services which is powered by our Master Algorithm for Institutions and High Net Worth Clients and if you are in need of such a service, please contact our elite proprietary trading team at mpower@malaccasecurities.com.my for a personalised presentation or refer to the details of our MPower Trading Program at mplusonline.blog
For the purposes of the MPAP for stand-alone common traders, the resources and materials presented have been tailored-made to address their needs as such.

Such needs are however different for institution requirements.

The Master Algorithm is an immensely powerful trading system that scan the market in all time frames at any times and its use is more suited to large local and global institutional funds which needs breadth and depth for their large portfolio funds and various other strategies such as portfolio risk and reward, asset and sector allocation and the creation and maintenance of a model portfolio that easily outperform in terms of both absolute and relative returns.

These needs are best serviced by our Malacca Securities Discretionary Trading Services, which is powered by our Master Algorithm for Institutions and High Net Worth Clients and if you are in need of such a service, please contact our elite proprietary trading team at mpower@malaccasecurities.com.my for a personalised presentation or refer to the details of our M Power Trading Program at mplusonline.blog

We have also tailored-made private and advanced trading strategy and educational reports for analysts, fund managers and high-net individuals who are managing their own portfolio of funds or for others (whether privately owned or for an institution).
At the heart of any elite trader is the passion and greed to make trading easier, more accurate and effortless. Traders (whether retailers or large institutional funds) are also always looking to make more gains and returns from their trades.

Our proprietary traders, programmers and data scientists at Malacca Securities Algorithm Division are committed to help our premier clients and institutions progress to the next generation of trading in the market.

Our Master Algorithm (and in corollary the algorithm powering the MPAP) contains millions of advanced conditional, related and formatting codings and formulas and are continuously refined and upgraded to address the latest future trends and advancements in database and trading system and techniques.

Such future trends in the trading world include making sense of hidden patterns in unstructured data, big data analysis, deep learning, artificial intelligence, etc. Other advances in technologies such as blockchain, cloud computing, machine intelligence, behavioral science, and other areas will also likely change the securities trading world in the future.

C. CONTENTS

The elite subscriber for the MPAP will get a very comprehensive main Trading Sheet which will address the market condition locally and globally and include individual stock trading picks.

In addition, various other value-added trading reports exclusive only to the MPAP subscribers will be given for free only to subscribers who chose to be a member for more than one year.

These additional trading reports are powered by the Master Algorithm, which is used to power trades for large institutional funds only.

An example would be trade picks from the Model Portfolio Sheet which are available to top institutional funds only but are occasionally made available to MPAP elite subscribers.

Another example would be trade picks from the Hunting Sheet which are also only exclusively available to top institutional funds but are occasionally made available to complement the Trading Sheet given to MPAP elite subscribers.

Various other resources are also exclusively made available to the MPAP users only including educational and networking materials.

The MPAP is a program for premier clients only and you shall adhere strictly to the terms of usage if you intend to become an elite user of the MPAP.

These include the protection of our copyright and proprietary MPAP materials, confidentiality rules, single license for personal individual use only, non-distribution to third parties, etc.

You are advised to refer and understand the complete terms of use of the MPAP program atTOU before applying for admission to the program.
The Trading Sheet will present a list of low-risk high-probability picks that short-term investors, traders and scalpers (defined as those with a holding period of a few days/to a few weeks) may utilise to enter stocks that are likely to rally up again within a short time.

It is more suitable for elite traders and those who prefer to keep their risk and capital low by entering and taking quick profits of various diversified rallying stocks (up or down) in the market at the right time.

The compounding effect of making profits within a day or a few days (or weeks) over and over again could translate into a tremendous return over the period of a month or a year.

The optimum entry (high-probability buy price) and exit profit levels (high probability target prices) and trailing stop loss price will be given so that a trader will know how much risk he has to take and when he can exit his profit at the optimum right time.

All Trading Sheet picks will be tracked from entry to exit.

As such, if the trader so wishes, he can just follow or replicate the Trading Sheet picks WITHOUT any prior knowledge of the market.

However, there are various other information presented in the Trading Sheet to help one’s manage his portfolio exposure as an elite trader and there are also various other value-added reports/tools/education that come with the benefit of being a member of the MPAP.

From our experience, some traders will just rely on the Trading Sheet while others will use the opportunities given to members via the other value-added reports/tools/education to advance themselves and graduate into a master trader themselves.
There are a total of four main strategies to address the different risk-appetite of traders i.e. the Aggressive Trader strategy Type 1 and 2, the Moderate Trader strategy and the Conservative Trader strategy.

A brief description of each strategy is given below:

Aggressive Trader Strategy – Swing The Swing Strategy (Type 1) for Aggressive Traders incorporates the use of swing and trend analysis for short term low-risk high probability trades.

Aggressive Trader Strategy – Breakout The Breakout Strategy (Type 2) for Aggressive Traders incorporates the use of price breakout analysis for short term low-risk high probability trades.

The strategy also incorporates scalping trades, which are riskier trades in terms of volatility, volume, time and other factors but nonetheless still qualify as short-term low-risk high probability trades.

Moderate Trader Strategy tab The Moderate Trader Strategy for Moderate Traders incorporates the use of price reversal analysis for medium term low-risk high probability trades.

Conservative Trader Strategy tab The Conservative Trader Strategy for Conservative Traders incorporates the use of the Trend and Cycle analysis to identify a stock that is firmly trending up (or down vice-versa) and within that firm uptrend (downtrend), it identifies areas of cycles low for longer term low-risk high probability entries for a buyer (seller) to continue to ride the uptrend (downtrend).

The analysis algorithm builds in very powerful risk-reward calculations that incorporates various factors such as volatility, velocity, pattern and etc. to filter the stock picks.

All the stock picks under each of the four trading strategies above must comply with our proprietary strict mathematical and statistical-derived algorithm filters before they qualify as making it into a Trading Sheet pick.
The Model Portfolio Sheet will present a list of low-risk high-probability picks that long-term investors (defined as those with a holding period of days to weeks to months) may utilise to enter stocks that are likely to continue to rally up or down over a longer period of time and thus possibly deriving a much higher amount of profit per stock over a longer term (for example 20%-100% or more).

The Model Portfolio Sheet utilises the core concept of trend and trading in the direction of the trend.

The trend is calculated from a mathematical and statistical algorithm incorporating various mathematical theories such as calculus (derivatives), regression, acceleration, standard deviation, etc.

Unlike the Trading Sheet strategy which is suited more for short term traders, the MP sheet is more suitable for long term traders looking to ride the main trend of a stock, rather than its momentum - which may flow and ebb from time to time.

It is thus more suitable for long term investors and institutional funds who manage a portfolio of stocks and want to ride on the right rallying theme and stocks in the market to make a much higher range of returns for the portfolio.

The optimum entry and exit levels will be given so that a trader or investor will know how much risk he has to take and when he can exit his profit at the optimum right time.

The Hunting Sheet will present a list of low-risk high probability picks that traders and investors could enter and exit into at the precise high-probability levels.

The Hunting Sheet utilises the core concept of support (buying level) and resistance (selling level) in picking these high-probability levels to enter and exit a stock.

Stock prices typically rise until sellers emerge at high-probability selling levels and fall until buyers emerge at high-probability buying levels as movement in stock prices are but just a reflection of the demand and supply of the stock in the market.

The buying and selling levels are not your basic support and resistance levels but are derived from mathematical and statistical algorithm-derived high-probability levels incorporating various factors such as clusters, volatility, time frame, divergence, volume, etc and are determined in advance for action to be taken way in advance before prices even reach the level.

We have never ceased to be amazed how oftentimes prices reverse and rally at the exact level calculated in advance, right up to the exact tick or zone.

Our Algorithm Division caters to both retail and institutional traders and investors.

In fact, our Master Algorithm program was designed actually to service the usage and requirements of large local and global institutional funds in that it addresses comprehensively the risk and reward of the entire local/global markets and the creation and maintenance of a model portfolio that easily outperform in terms of both absolute and relative returns.

Such institutions’ needs are vastly different to the common traders in terms of their asset size, asset allocation, trading volume, liquidity, the ability and need to cover the whole depth and breadth of the market, the inter-play to global markets, etc. among many other factors.

To help the common traders wishing to trade at the level and skills of the institutions, a small part of the Master Algorithm dealing with individual stock picks has been extracted to power the stock trading picks of the MPAP.

The MPAP is without doubt a boon to common traders who wish to trade and make money like an elite trader while institutional investors will find its standards of use to be highly superior to many of their own in-house trading tools.

We believe that retailers by and large should have their requirements satisfied by the resources and content made available under the MPAP.

However, we have also tailored-made private and advanced trading strategy and educational reports for analysts, fund managers and high-net individuals who are managing their own portfolio of funds or for others (whether privately owned or for an institution).

Under these special arrangements, you will get personal and private access to our algorithm team of data scientists, programmers and analysts at any time you require.
