How are the results?

TRIDENT | AI factor values have provided timely warnings of every major pullback & recovery during a wide spectrum of market conditions since 2000.

At the sector level, TRIDENT | AI users have also gained insight into periods of underperformance, giving them the ability to optimize risk-adjusted outcomes to a degree not previously possible.

Displayed factor weights are:

  • Relative to all included assets
  • Have an absolute value total of 100%

Below is an example with three securities, and again with the third security removed.


Blue bars represent positive strength values, whereas red bars show negative strength.

The lower graph displays historical model output for the selected asset over a series of chronological dates. When no asset is selected, this display represents the cumulative historical values of all included assets. The cumulative display has an upper and lower value and can be thought of as a sliding 100% range (from +100%:0% to 0%:-100% and anywhere between).

An overlay of the asset’s historical close price is provided for quick reference. When no asset is selected, this becomes a daily mean average of included assets’ closing prices.

TRIDENT | AI factor weights are derived from competing momentum and mean-reversion AI models with a specific focus on volatility precursor identification. Each of these models consider an assortment of datasets, including:

  • Macro economic data.
  • Constituent fundamentals.
    • Individual & sector aggregate fundamentals for single names.
  • Traditional market price & volume data.
  • Proprietary derived datasets.

These are temporal datasets, representing the measurement of a given criteria at a specific point in time. Through seemingly countless iterations, conditions across these criteria occurring concurrently serve to continuously train and enhance TRIDENT | AI models.

A third model completes the TRIDENT | AI suite. This model acts as a de facto arbiter between the competing models, determines the relative importance of individual criteria at each particular time, and ultimately decides the included assets’ factor magnitudes & trajectories.

In practical use, it’s best to think of TRIDENT | AI factor weights similarly to those of smart beta strategies: as a means of enhancing model portfolio construction and raising attention to potentially hazardous exposure arising from individual assets and, in some cases, equities as an entire class.

Suppose two assets have displayed values of +10% and -5%, respectively. This does not necessarily mean TRIDENT | AI expects the first to appreciate by 10% and the later to depreciate by 5%. Rather, this indicates the former having a higher likelihood of upward movement (relative strength), and the latter displaying disproportionate risk, but to a lesser degree.

Although situations allowing for a more tactical use of TRIDENT | AI may occur, the primary focus should be on enhancing risk mitigation/capitalization efforts via focused allocation adjustments without a burdensome disruption to either your mandates or investment thesis.

TRIDENT | AI output values can be used as a proxy for comparable assets. For example, an investor may prefer to utilize the VOO in place of the SPY and could do so without expecting significant discrepancies. However, TRIDENT | AI users should understand that not all assets – even those of comparable holdings – will necessarily offer a one-to-one equivalency.

Output values should not be used as a proxy for small cap or OTC assets.

Use of TRIDENT | AI for “day trading” purposes is generally discouraged.
