Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
Scott Andrews, Founder and CEO of Master The Gap, Inc. announced today that it has changed its corporate name to InvestiQuant, Inc., and is closing on $1.5 million in funding from some of its long-term clients. The funding will be used to build the company’s new website and technology infrastructure, and to create a single destination for active investors and traders interested in quantitative trading research, education, and tools for short-term strategies.
InvestiQuant’s new subscription-based service, to be launched by end of Q1, will provide actionable, on-demand research focused on short-term strategies for better trading stocks, ETFs, futures, and commodities. “Since the financial meltdown of 2008, self-directed investors have moved increasingly to shorter time-frame investment strategies to reduce their risk and increase their returns. But many have struggled with the biggest pitfall of short-term trading: sub-optimal, emotionally based decisions resulting from the subjective and unreliable nature of interpreting visual price charts. By providing concrete historical data, InvestiQuant will enable active investors to overcome these challenging discretionary elements and help them to trade smarter, with less emotion, more confidence, and more consistency,” says CEO, Scott Andrews.
Scott Greenwell, a Member of InvestiQuant’s Board of Directors as well as a self-directed investor and subscriber to the Company’s research since 2010, adds, “InvestiQuant will be the ideal solution for those like me who are interested in trading when there is a historically-proven and quantifiable edge. With IQ, you will be able to leverage the power of sophisticated algorithms looking at years of historical data and trade with history on your side.”
Since 2008, Master The Gap has provided quantitative research and education for select strategies and markets to intraday traders. Using a transparent and unique ‘guide-based’ approach the Company has built a loyal following of intraday traders around the globe. Scott Andrews and his team are highly regarded leaders in trading the S&P 500® Index and related futures markets using short-term, quant strategies.
