The Scientific Method Applied to Investing

The aim of statistical inference, whether it is in investment strategy development or medical research is not to say what would have been most effective in the past, but to make a statement about what will hold in the future. For valid inferences, we need to avoid bias in our conclusions.

Winton's research process has been designed to manage selection bias and avoid other common quantitative investment pitfalls. Here we describe the causes of such bias and some of the tools that can help us yield valid conclusions.

TestingOur Strategy for Testing Our Strategies

We have a well-defined process for testing and screening signals that has been honed over the past two decades through a combination of trial, error, and careful thought. Our research process is designed to answer the question: does a trading strategy work? But does our research process work?

In a carefully designed experiment, 26 research-approved trading strategies were shown, on average, to have genuine forecasting skill. This is an encouraging result for both the profitability of these systems and Winton's research methods.
