What our clients say?

QuantLab has the most comprehensive set of quantitative mean-reversion trading strategies that I have found in the market. Its clear focus on risk management and the thoroughness with which the strategies have been tested have generated surprisingly consistent, market-beating returns in my account. Implementing a trading strategy using its portfolio selection tools and order entry system couldn’t be easier.

Craig Van Zyl CA(SA), CFA

What our clients say?

Having used Quantlab for more than a year now, I can safely say that it is one of the most impressive retail trading products out there. Quantlab generates trades without emotional bias, encourages prudent position sizing, and houses it all in a clean, user-friendly interface. It truly is the one-stop shop that I was looking for. Highly recommended!

Clint van Heerden CA(SA)

What our clients say?

What a pleasure using Quantlab - this takes the biggest failing of investors being successful out of the equation - namely EMOTION! Just log on once a day and push your order activation button. No more trying to second guess your indicators, Quantlab takes care of that for you. After 15 years of active investing and trading, using many different systems, this is the best I have come across.

Ed Peen, Amberdawn (Pty) Ltd

What our clients say?

I had tried to trade with CFD's some years ago and very soon got wiped out. Two reasons I did not have enough capital and no expertize. I have been with Quantlab for 4 months and am enjoying the whole concept of investing and having the computerized system buying and selling for me. The return so far for 4 months is just under 10% which equates with about 30% per annum minus the fees for using the programme. Thank you I love the concept of being able to short or go long depending on market movement.
