What market opportunities do we post and why?

T-Advisor, your suite for self-directed investment management, has a module to help investors find new ideas to improve their returns. These “Investment ideas” has a list of market opportunities from exchanges around the world that our algorithm selects and update every Monday. That is why we post every week a selection of them, but what criteria do we use to choose you some of them?

First of all, we look into all the markets to find what stocks have been selected. The screen shows initially just some figures from the securities of each market. We take into account the trend. We opt for the ones with bullish trend and with less than 1% slope. Why? Because we prefer stable and progressive increases instead of sudden ones which makes the security more volatile.

The selection keeps on checking several figures in the T-Report:

  • The liquidity grade: it has to be higher than 5
  • The score: it has to be also higher than 5 or 6
  • The performance: it has to be positive in the year and show also a positive figure in the last year, to confirm that the stock did not suffer a strong variability.

Finally, we also look the 1-year chart. We avoid charts with strong variations or sudden jumps upwards. We prefer steady positive trends to avoid high risks. You can find the difference clearly in these charts:

Chart with high slope in T-Report

We consider that investments should be for a long-term. Trading is also a possibility for investors. We are not critical with it, but we prefer a more stable model. That is why our weekly proposals tend to be bets for that idea. Of course, markets change daily, but it does not mean that investors have to react immediately to every event. Portfolios should tend to be stable and include changes when your goals and risk profile change, because you evolve also as investors, or when your securities do not play a positive role anymore. That is why it is relevant the long-term view. That avoids sudden changes… and mistakes guided for the moment.

Gamification: investments are a serious game

One of the multiples changes produced as a result of the development of Internet is the use of games in non-gaming fields. That is known as gamification. Through this idea, several companies try to promote certain behaviours or uses amongst its customers.

How to use it in investments? There are some ways, as points, badges or the fulfilment of a line with several processes, for instance. From the very beginning, T-Advisor has used it for the portfolios. Every user receives a score to learn about how well he or she is doing with his or her assets.

Gamification in T-Advisor with tools for score

This score has a double purpose: to report about the quality of the portfolio related to some ratios and to motivate the user to research into our tools to improve the results. At the end, more points will also mean a better performance.

Our commitment with gamification as a useful strategy for our users will continue. The score is just the first step. We are going to add soon a new module for investment planning that proposes also gamification tools. Investments have always a purpose: retirement, a house, a car, a journey… Aims are so different as people are. The idea of our planner is to help people focus their personal targets just fulfilling several steps. Doing it in an enjoyable way will motivate and increase the personal engagement.

Gamification with investment planner in T-Advisor

This will not be our last development in this direction. The addition of gamification tools in serious areas has succeeded to develop personal skills. This is our internal goal: that our users develop their investment skills in an easy way taking into account our advanced suite full of relevant data for them.
