Can an individual investor use a computer to improve the chances of beating the market? Will using a computer help or hurt your results? Will it reduce or increase the amount of time necessary to manage your portfolio? Many performance claims ignore major negative factors in returns. Probably the four most significant such factors are fees, taxes, inflation and the impracticality of exactly following the benchmark. Claimed time savings ignore the time spent downloading data and updates and fixing the problems that occur when you install them. This seminar will look at these claims and discuss actual and simulated results obtained with real software under real market conditions. We will attempt to provide a completely realistic look at what results can be expected by an individual using a computer.
