Trading Philosophy

unlike many other trading firms, our approach is to work smarter, not faster.

proprietary formulas & expertise drive success

Hard Eight executes its investment decisions through risk arbitrage and relative value trading strategies where entry and exit points are determined by quantitative pricing analysis and proprietary formulas. As a general philosophy, our trading strategies seek to work smarter, not faster than other firms while closely managing our risk. We are NOT a high frequency trading firm.
