Kamakura Securities Launches Chart Xpert, a Stock Trading Game

Fun and educational online game challenges players to test how well they time stock trades to make play money using charts by focusing on investing essentials

Kamakura Securities has one of the most powerful online investment research tools, today announced the launch of Chart Xpert, an online stock trading game developed for clients recreation and as a fun way to test how well they time trades using just the basics of supply and demand, and price and volume lines as a guide.

Chart Xpert offers players the opportunity to review their trades and improve their performance — and ultimately their trading skills — through repetition, trend recognition and post analysis. Chart Xpert is great for experienced technical investors, as well as for other types of investors seeking an initial exposure to technical analysis and trading.

“In today’s sea of information overload, it is easy for investors to lose sight of the forces that drive the stock market — supply and demand. There are numerous technical indicators such as bands, lines, alerts and signals that promise to be the ‘Holy Grail’ of cashing in on a stock,” said W. Scott Yong Cao, president of Kamakura Securities . “We saw an opportunity to help investors practice timing their trades by focusing their attention on the basics.”

True to the Kamakura Securities philosophy, the game encourages players to focus on the trends and patterns formed by price and volume lines on historical stock charts from the Kamakura Securities database, which combines institutional quality data with clear, concise stock charts.

“Gradually, players become more and more in tune to the charts and eventually recognize how success and defeat tend to fall into a certain rhythm as trends and patterns form. Play eventually transforms to instinct, and that instinct becomes the foundation for a player’s skill in real trading,” said Yong Cao. “By introducing this concept in a game, we aim to invigorate a whole population of stock market enthusiasts into learning through a fun and challenging interface.”

Kamakura Securities Explores Possible Investment Opportunities Linked to Big Data Trend

Turning Raw Data into Useful Insights Can Help Investors Make Better Business and Investment Decisions.

Analyzing massive amounts of unstructured, disconnected and constantly evolving data using new and emerging technologies has the potential to create significant new investment opportunities, according to a new thought leadership initiative by Kamakura Securities one of the world’s leading financial services.

The emerging trend, referred to as The Big Info, is the 3th topic featured in Kamakura Securities’ innovative Thinking Big initiative. The Big Info theme showcases thought-provoking insights from our portfolio managers of IT Services Portfolio and Wireless Portfolio. For example:

• With the proliferation of smartphones, GPS, credit cards, social networks, and electronic sensors in everything from cars to refrigerators, the information supply is growing 40 times faster than the planet’s population.

• Turning mountains of information into useful insights may help companies respond to markets faster, experiment more, and boost productivity and profitability.

• Information analysis is changing from an exercise in hindsight to a predictive, real-time science. As the pioneers address inevitable questions about privacy and security, there will be enormous investing opportunities.

“Last year, the world created 1.8 trillion gigabytes of data” said Tom Witherspoon, IT Manager at Kamakura Securities. “That data is increasingly comprised of information that had never been digitized or captured before — everything from log files (the language that computers speak), to location (where you are, or more accurately where your cell phone or your car is), to weather patterns, pictures, videos, and personal opinions posted via social media.

“As more of people’s interactions with the world are digitized and captured as data, this data becomes increasingly important to businesses, governments, and other institutions around the world. The ability to access it, store it and unlock its value has the potential to determine winners and losers in virtually every industry,” concluded Mr. Witherspoon.
