About this Event

What is Alpha?

"Alpha" (the Greek letter α) is a term used in investing to describe a strategy's ability to beat the market, or having an "edge."

Alpha is a measure of performance, indicating when a strategy, trader, or portfolio manager has managed to beat the market return over some period. As Alpha is the active return on an investment, it is also often referred to as “excess return” .

Now, we've put together a band of diversified traders who are extremely active in the markets, and are Alpha-hunters by profession.

Join us as we invite these active traders in one single setting to share their strategies, tips and tricks in their quest for Alpha.

This is Trading For Alpha: The Active Traders' Rally.
