InvestorsEdge is a simple yet powerful trading management platform that allows you to develop a trading concept from an idea through to a fully backtested trading strategy.

Our platform gives you access to a global database of historical data, including end of day share prices and point in time fundamental and analyst estimate information, which you can leverage to build high quality trading strategies.

Once your trading model is developed, tested and live, the platform will suggest opening and closing trading positions on a schedule of your choosing. Additionally, monetise your strategies by using the InvestorsEdge website to publish and market your idea to paying subscribers.

The InvestorsEdge platform provides a web based platform through which you can:

  • Select a universe of stocks based on size, geographical region, sector or any other factor within our database.
  • Rank your selected stocks by criteria you specify. Ranking allows you to sort companies from best to worst using criteria you specify, and then converts each to a percentile score.
  • Define your strategy, which denotes trading rules for buying and selling shares together with rules for how a portfolio is put together and rebalanced.
  • Backtest your strategies against historical data stretching back over 17 years to determine how successful your idea would have been.
  • Paper trade with your tested strategies as if you were using real money.
  • Manage a live portfolio of stocks, with the InvestorsEdge platform suggesting changes to your positions on a regular basis.
  • Publish your strategy onto the InvestorsEdge website and attract paying subscribers to follow you and receive trading suggestions.

The InvestorsEdge is powered by data from Factset. We take Factset’s global data feeds and structure them to give in depth access to:

  • Shares Outstanding and Stock Splits

Our data feeds go back to 1st January 2000.
