Investtech's systems are built on research dating back to 1994, and several projects have received support from the Research Council of Norway. Our research is based on principles from mathematical pattern recognition, statistical optimisation and behavioural finance.
Our most important goal is to identify circumstances that can give investors robust excess return over time.
The Chief Indicator is Trend
Investtech's research shows that stocks in rising trends give a good indication that they will continue upwards. And not only that; they will rise more than benchmark index.
