DAILY TRADING STRATEGY

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS The FTSE closed lower for the 4 consecutive session as is coming close to the 50% retracement leve. There was some indication that bargain hunters were on the prowl towards the end of the session so we may see a bounce tomorrow. We expect any upside to be limited in the short term.

5 Stocks to Buy in October

September has been a tough month for the FTSE100, with the Index being down, around 1.5% on the month from 7430. The index continues to trade in Range-Bound fashion between 7100-7550 points. Support at 7300 points broke down and we are currently attempting to retake this level. Overall the Index remains bullish, but we can foresee more Range-Bound/volatile trade between 7100-7500 points. Conditions remain favourable for buying shares but we advise towards selective buying of shares.

MACRO COMMENTARY 

European bourses are set to open lower on Monday morning after preliminary coalition talks in Germany 
collapsed. The FTSE 100 is seen lower by 11 points at 7,369; the German DAX is expected to open 81 points lower 
at 12,911 and the CAC 40 is seen down by 25 points at 5,288, according to IG. In Asia, equities were mostly lower 
on growing doubts over U.S. plans to update the tax system. The euro was trading 0.5 percent lower against the 
dollar and 0.58 percent lower against the yen at about 4:30 a.m. London time. The currency was under pressure 
following news that Chancellor Angela Merkel failed to reach an agreement with two other political parties to 
form a new government. The FDP pulled out of the talks citing irreconcilable differences. Merkel is now to consult 
with the German president on what to do next, but it's possible that new elections could be called. In corporate 
news, the Swiss private bank Julius Baer is due to report interim results on Monday morning and William Hill in 
the U.K. will release its latest quarterly figures. UBS, Royal Bank of Scotland, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, 
Barclays, HSBC and two other banks are reportedly willing to negotiate settlements with European regulators, 
likely to cost billions of euros combined, after a four-year probe into rigging in the forex market, the Financial 
Times reported. Meanwhile in the U.K., Finance Minister Philip Hammond, who is due to present the next budget 
Wednesday, promised to advance housebuilding in the country.

REAL ESTATE FOCUS

UK Real State coverage

We partnered with HousePrice AI to provide a unique insight into the RE sector and how it affects real estate related stocks and ETFs

SEQUANT RE PORTFOLIO

HousePrice AI (HPAI) developed an algorithm based on machine learning and big data that allows to predict the price of a property around UK with an error of 1-2% within a second.

Using the data and indexes developed by the HPAI we are analysing the real estate sector and determining correlations between property related exchange traded instruments thus having a unique insight into which stocks may be mispriced.

SEQUANT RE PORTFOLIO We have compiled a basket of stocks and ETFs that have high correlation to property prices and aim to predict the dynamics of the basket looking at where the prices move.


MODEL PORTFOLIOS

MODEL PORTFOLIOS We have developed a model that filters multiple fundamental and technical parameters and rank instruments accordingly.

This process for investment has been refined over many years and aims to attribute the highest weightings to the best performing assets classes.

A lot of emphasis is placed on the relative performance of the assets against generally accepted benchmarks.

We invest solely in Exchange Traded Funds.

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges, much like stocks. Sequant’s long term ETF strategies are aimed at investors who want to take a global, passive approach to investing.

The strategy re-balances monthly and investors will be notified when changes need to be made. The approach is to be fully invested at all times across 10 different investments.

We focus only on global equities and developed market Government bonds.
