“Due to the white-box approach and development tools in the autoTRADER, we were able to start with standard algos and gradually build up to our own sophisticated strategies. Our trading team can focus on higher-value tasks, and we now have several unique, AI-based strategies and are discovering highly successful new approaches. It’s definitely a win-win situation.”
