How Has Engineering Inspired Trading Robots?

It has long been argued among engineers that robots will eventually do most of our work for us. However, nearly fifty years after the claims of robots stealing our jobs were made, we are still yet to be granted a day off because a robot is coming in to cover. But that isn’t to denigrate the work of scientists and engineers who have been developing robots – who have been building upon the principles of AI, machine learning, and smart algorithms – in order to make our lives easier and streamline processes for us. One such crop of robots has been engineered to help streamline an incredibly complex process and looks to begin making our lives easier – trading robots. But, how far into developing these trading robots have we gone?

Trading Robots to Streamline the Process

Engineering is all about practical solutions to problems. The main reason for developing a robot to aid with trading is to make the process quicker and react to signals in the markets. One of the benefits of using trading robots is that they remove any of the human emotion of the trade and the psychological barriers that may impede making a successful or risky trade. Another difficult aspect of options trading and speculating on the price of a future financial market is understanding when to make trades and what to make trades on. As trading robots are designed to help amalgamate a lot of information and analyze it for patterns and sequences that can indicate what trades you should make, they could help streamline the process. Overall, trading robots could be used to greatly increase efficiency, and their use in trading could inform the wider uptake of similar software being developed.  

Engineering Companies Inspiring Trading Robots

Trading robots were spawned from the development of various aspects of engineering and have taken inspiration from many engineering feats. Lahore-based Descon, for instance, has a division of its engineering unit based around automation and control. The company aims to work alongside existing levels of automation and branch out into those that give added value. Indeed, automation is fast becoming a necessity when it comes to engineering, and the influence for trading robots is likely the amount of automation that engineers have developed for other processes. The move of engineering companies towards more intricate issues involving computers and algorithms shows where the development of these trading robots came from and how they fulfil the remit of most engineering companies who aim to solve problems and discover solutions.

Trading robots are just a drop in the ocean of the extent to which engineering and modern technology are colliding in order to make our lives easier. Testing the software out on a smaller group – those interested in trading – means it can be perfected by the time we use similar software in more overt ways through our daily lives
