2021 World Cup Trading Championship

Top 5 in just under 6 months
with 80.9% net return

When she was a newcomer to the year-long Trading Championship, Lisa was excited to participate in a global competition where she could pit herself against others. Competitive by nature, she was motivated by her late start in mid-July 2021 into focusing wholeheartedly over the next several months to try for a comeback.

The intense period following has seen her strengthening risk management, which plays a predominant role. The team works continuously to incorporate new data into risk models and stress-test strategies to ensure the best balance between risk and reward.This has been an on-going and evolving process from the very first day she found out about the Trading Championship and decided to enter.

She resumed competing in the World Cup as of April 2022, and has begun trading fresh accounts as an Advisor, a position she is honored to have been invited to as a result of her incredible results during 2021. Investors can follow along automatically by connecting their own brokerage accounts.

Lisa Chen is a prime example of high performance and precision.

Lisa Chen started executing trades for her firm’s clients at just 22 years old.

“I remember being nervous about making a mistake. But as someone who dreamed of becoming a professional race car driver, where the slightest mistake can be detrimental, it was essential that I have the necessary capabilities,” Lisa recalls.

Since then, Lisa’s life of both championship motorsports and trading has proven that she has the drive and skill to excel.

Despite having started the 2021 World Cup Trading Championship only halfway through the year, Lisa still managed to be ranked amongst the Top 5, and says she is looking forward to having her strategies demonstrate their capabilities as an Advisor.

Lisa has translated her methodologies into hard-coded algorithmic strategies, with the goal of eliminating human error or emotion. These strategies are designed to trade whether the market rises or falls.

She notes that her fully automated algorithmic system has been developed in conjunction with top-tiered industry programmers and is updated regularly.

“Each improvement is built using exhaustive walk-forward optimization and analysis to ensure the trading model can handle variables, allowing it to perform effectively in the future,” she says. “The system monitors market behavior, and opens trades when the rules are met according to the indicators I have developed.”

Lisa works alongside an expert risk management team to constantly diversify and balance the portfolio, working towards achieving a smooth equity curve.

One of Lisa’s guiding principles, and a lesson she freely shares, is to “stay focused on always improving and extracting every edge possible, whether on the race track, where competitions are won by tenths of seconds, or when trading. Leave no stone unturned on the quest to achieve sustainable results.”

This attitude of self-improvement has enabled her to grow continuously as a trader. Keeping in line with the above motto, Lisa now spends much of each day analyzing results, improving, and building new strategies, while the systems themselves handle the monotony of executing trades.

What is good risk management?
- It is when the outcome of one particular trade has no effect on the overall result.
- It is when a large series of losses does not cause heart palpitations.
- It is when a strategy with random entries crosses the 1,000-trades mark and is still in game.

Understand, calculate, minimize & manage risk to maximize opportunities for growth.
