Investors Exploit "Star Wars" Mathematics

10 June 1992

Jurik Research and Consulting announces the arrival of "Star Wars" mathematics to get an edge in the financial markets.

During the last decade major new trends have totally transformed the nature and risk of capital markets. As a consequence, financial markets are more complex, interrelated and volatile. More and more books are discussing "market chaos" while popular trading methods become less profitable. Large institutions now spend millions to develop trading systems that exploit subtle and hard-to-find market inefficiencies.

Jurik Research & Consulting offers powerful add-in modules to numerous market charting platforms. They easily handle the jarring aspects of market behavior and give investors a unique advantage.

"There were no compromises in the development of our MOVING AVERAGE indicator, AMA" said Mark Jurik, founder of Jurik Research. "AMA utilizes concepts in Robotics and Information Theory. AMA attains a smooth estimate of market price with low lag."

Numerous statisticians and mathematicians have requested AMA's mathematical formula. "A handful have paid a significant fee for the actual algorithm", said Jurik. However, the public can get AMA software straight from Jurik Research for just $205.


Futures Magazine gives TOP SCORES

10 FEB 1995

Futures Magazine (jan 95) gave near-perfect scores for Jurik's financial forecast preprocessing software: DDR, AMA and WAV. These three tools save the Excel user from an enormous amount of coding time by automating three operations extremely important for financial market forecasting.

AMA [later revised to JMA] is the most advanced moving average technical indicator available on the market. WAV compresses lots of historical data into a smaller set of numbers. DDR compresses information across many indicators into a smaller set of new indicators. This trio of tools removes unwanted noise and then performs compression in both time and space, resulting in optimal data sets for regression modeling of market forecasts.

The ratings given were :

  • DDR modulegreen_stargreen_stargreen_stargreen_star"Excellent"
  • AMA modulegreen_stargreen_stargreen_stargreen_star"Excellent"
  • WAV modulegreen_stargreen_stargreen_starhalf_green_star"Excellent-Good"

Stocks and Commodities gives favorable review

1 MAY 1999

The Jurik Research software suite was reviewed in the April 1999 issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities. JMA's famous ability to jump along a price gap to new trading levels significantly faster than classical moving averages was said by the reviewer to be "especially important to day traders".

As for VEL, the reviewer plotted daily T-bond closing prices and commented, " can see that a number of key turning points are quickly picked up by VEL."

All three tools, JMA, VEL and CFB can be incorporated into visual basic subroutines for complete automation, including optimization. As for user friendliness, the reviewer said "working in Excel and the Jurik indicators is a breeze."

In summary, with regard to a trader's particular dissatisfaction with classical indicators, the reviewer stated "Jurik Research may have the solution."

15 MAY 2000

The following is extracted from the complete article.

"At $205, the JMA package is good value, as it not only includes a generous selection of pre-built indicators and systems but the manual supplied also makes a thorough job of stepping you through their effective deployment. ... The bottom line is that this is the sort of tool that could add significant value on any trading desk, both in its own right and as a highly efficient smoothing mechanism for other technical analysis techniques."
