In the few years that I've been writing this blog, I've written about different sites and products related to financial topics, but I think this is my first post on algorithmic trading. is a site that offers an automated investment management system which is professionally controlled by human analysts.

The AlgoRates system is always being reviewed through the company's continual improvement process, and new research is brought to bear on how the system works. The idea of the system is to help small traders who have historically experienced losses in the market. Large banks and funds have uses algorithmic trading for years, and AlgoRates strives to help smaller investors build their portfolios in this way, too.

The website also contains informational material on what algorithmic trading is, its potential advantages, and what strategies the company utilizes. In a nutshell, this type of trading uses an online trading platform (or computer software program) that uses a set of operations (an algorithm) to automatically make trades based on specific factors that are programmed into the algorithm, such as price and timing.

Honestly, there's much more to learn on this topic than your humble blogger can explain to you, but AlgoRates is an interesting place to start if you want to learn more.
