Cyprus-headquartered SquaredFinancial, a fintech brokerage offering trading services through online and mobile platforms, has become the first company to offer its customers access to iQbyQi’s cutting edge analytics, backed by artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science. iQbyQi is currently available for retail traders in Europe and the Middle East.
iQbyQi is developed by quantitative financial market analytics provider, Quant Insight (Qi). It uses a cloud-based AI “market brain” which analyzes millions of data points in real time, understands how they are all connected to market prices, highlights opportunities and risks, then broadcasts insights and analytics, tailored specifically to retail traders.
With this partnership, SquaredFinancial’s retail traders will receive iQbyQi daily analytics and insights. iQbyQi’s unique insights into the macro-forces driving asset prices allow individual investors to identify key market opportunities and risks and make better trading decisions.
SquaredFinancial is the first major brokerage to offer their retail traders iQbyQi’s AI-backed insights. Until recently, Qi has used its technology to provide unique macro insights exclusively for the institutional world with some of the world’s best known investment banks, hedge funds and asset managers, including Alan Howard of Brevan Howard, incorporating Qi’s analytics in their investment process.
However, Qi have sought to ‘level-the-playing-field’ with iQbyQi, by matching retail traders with institutional-grade analytics via online brokers in Europe and the Middle East. As it stands, retail trading accounts have boomed, but between 60% and 80% of individual trading accounts are losing money, as there is a significant knowledge, experience and resources gap that iQbyQi aims to fill.
Zahi Younan, CEO for Quant Insight Europe, said in a statement: ““iQbyQi is the antidote to a world where retail traders are swamped by countless subjective opinions leading to nothing but confusion; an antidote based on the power of data science, AI and machine learning for better investment decisions.:
Husam Al Kurdi, CEO for SquaredFinancial, said in a statement: “An informed decision is always a better decision, which is why we believe education is the key to healthy trading. We offer our clients the necessary tools that allow them to deepen their knowledge and react knowing the latest market updates and insights in order to make the right trading decisions…The technology provided to SquaredFinancial clients by iQbyQi offers astute detail into the macro factors driving the prices of all the assets available to trade on our website.”
Daniel Skowronski, CEO for SquaredFinancial’s new digital asset arm in the US, said in a statement: “SquaredFinancial is empowering retail investors with special tools that will help them throughout their trading journey. This partnership with Qi goes in line with SquaredFinancial’s expansion in the USA through its new digital asset arm.”
