A quantitative strategy is designed to take advantage of modern technology, mathematics and statistical analysis. A computer program will generate all the trading activity without human intervention.
Quantitative trading can be applied to many different trading styles. However, the main advantage of quantitative trading is the fact that the trader can rely on past performances (even if just theoretical) and statistical reports, compared to the discretionary trader that has usually a very limited sample of trades for his/her trading system. It’s true that emotional trading is often the downfall of many traders (even systematic traders), but the single greatest advantage of algorithmic trading is its removal of emotion from the process.
If you get emotional during trading, quantitative trading is probably for you because the decision of when to enter and when to exit a trade is done by the program and executed by the computer and not by a trader. The number one reason why traders lose money is the lack of discipline in respecting the stop loss (a small loss becomes a huge one) and when to take profits (taking profits too early is also a common mistake for beginners).

Risk Control And Money Management
