Trading Signals

Every day ORTEX identifies alpha generating opportunities. These are identified through rigorous analysis and validated through back-testing. The Alpha trading signal will tell you how much return has historically been made and the optimal holding period and relative success of this signal in the past. ORTEX back-test data sets in infinite combinations and bring you the highest ranked signals across over 50,000 stocks every day. These signals are the ones that are most likely to happen again and produce the highest return in the shortest time.

The type of Signal that has been fired. ORTEX Alpha signals are EPS divergence signals (EPS), P/E signals (P/E), short interest signals (Short Increase), RSI, STOCHASTIC (STOCH) , MACD and an ORTEX technical,(ORTEX, which is a combination of the various Technical signals that has provided strong historical returns when back-tested).

Indicates whether the trigger is suggesting a buy or sell trade.

The average mean return that the signal has historically generated. Signals are only generated where triggers have worked historically, hence the mean return is always positive.

This shows how many times this signal has triggered in the past and the percentage of those triggers that have moved in the intended direction.  

Significance is a score out of 100 displayed as 0-5 stars with 100 or 5 stars being the top rated signal. The signals are rated based on highest return over shortest time combined with the frequency and success of previous signals.

The return chart shows the predicted success, risk and return levels for every day of the recommended holding period of the signal.

Signal Types

EPS divergence signals fire when the consensus of analysts EPS estimates diverge significantly from the share price and this divergence historically reverts and leads to strong alpha generating opportunities.

P/E Signals fire when a historically attractive/unattractive P/E level is reached (vs its own history and peers) that tends to lead to a reversion.

Short Increase signals show when there is a specific increased level of Shares on loan, which tends to be followed by an underperformance in the stock price.

Technical signals RSI, STOCH, ORTEX and MACD are fired when an extreme relative level is triggered that has historically produced a strong and predictive subsequent move.
