Patterns and AI Robots:
Tickeron`s AI Robots are recommended to be used when the markets are falling in general. The core algorithm makes only long trades utilizing 15 expert-selected inverse ETFs. A sophisticated risk-management engine builds the position using dynamically calculated trailing stop levels while the market goes in the expected direction. The trajectory of falling markets is analyzed and short-term corrections are used as additional entry points. The Robot closes all trades when a significant market reversal is detected and confirmed.

The robot's trading results are shown without using margin. Every minute, AI Robot scans the ETFs (15) listed in the field “Customized”. A user can adjust the ETFs selected and see changes in the expected number of trades per day and/or other statistics.

Tickeron's AI advancements, particularly in pattern detection and robot-assisted trading, exemplify the transformative potential of AI in the financial domain. As these technologies continue to evolve, they promise to further refine market analysis, enhance trading strategies, and ultimately, redefine the landscape of financial investment.
