What is MQ Trader?

MQ Trader stands for Malaysian Quantitative Trader. Why do we call ourselves “Quantitative”?

Quantitative analysis is a technique that uses mathematical and statistical modeling, measurement and research to identify trading opportunities. It enables investors to examine and analyze past, current and anticipated future events by using a large number of information to study and process each stock. It is generally only available to larger financial institutions and hedge funds.

Every investor has different level of knowledge ranging from beginners to professionals in the stock market. We have seen a lot of traders losing their hard-earned money because they do not have the right tool and mindset to trade and compete with the professional traders and investors. Thus, we want to include our knowledge and expertise in Quantitative Analysis into MQ Trader Stock Analysis Tool, so as to equip all of our group members with proper tool and right mindset in seizing opportunities from the stock market – carving pathway for our MQ group members to a level playing field via MQ Trader Stock Analysis Tool.

Advantages of Quantitative Analysis

  • Increase investment returns

It is able to identify and model the patterns to predict the price movement of a stock, so as to increase the winning chance of our investment. MQ Live Backtesting is one of the strategies that predicts the share price movement by analyzing a number of signals based on past 5 years historical data of a stock.

  • Discipline in investment

Quantitative analysis enables investors to trade based on the facts and data which are consistent and repeatable. It is a systematic methodology that provides result and manage investment risk based on the historical data.

  • Unemotional investing

Quantitative Analysis does not take subjective aspects of a company such as company’s management and prospect into account, as it only analyzes factors that can be quantified. Hence, misinterpretation of information which can lead to emotional biases and eventually cloud the judgement about a company can be avoided.

  • High efficiency

Quantitative analysis is able to run a big number of investments simultaneously while the traditional analyst can only look at a few at a time. Hence, it can locate the inefficiencies before others do.

  • Lower volatility

Multiple trading strategies can be applied in the investment, various risk characteristics of a company can be identified. For instance, one strategy might detect the stock is performing bullish at the moment but another strategy shows the share is still undergoing bearish price movement but potential rebound is identified. This approach can avoid false signals generated by the trading strategies.


Quantitative analysis is useful in providing insight into the valuation or historic performance of a stock. Besides, it also combines different trading strategies into a single portfolio. This makes our investment efficient, as one strategy may look for companies that are currently undervalued whereas another strategy can look for stocks with rising price. Thus, quantitative analysis is used in conjunction with fundamental and technical analysis in MQ Trader system to provide a better investment strategy in both short and long term.
