An Open source hedge fund strategy

Hi guys,

this is my first post so I have an interesting topic. We all know that hedge funds are supper secretive but what do we think of an open sourced hedge fund strategy?

Could it work? I know the immediate response is no but lets give it some thought.

Im thinking that it will have to be a quantitative / systematic / algorithm based strategy as discretionary trading would be very difficult to make open source.

Kind regards

The push back you are going to get with the concept of open source and algorithmic is that once the algorithm is public it is likely to start to see degraded performance as others use it. Not a big deal if you’re just talking retail forex traders, but if it gets used at the level of hedge funds then it’s an issue.
