For  larger multi-strategy accounts, a professional trader can use QT to create dynamic “META-strategies” that pick and allocate across existing Logical-Invest strategies. These ‘META-strategies’ can be tweaked to desired risk levels. They can be backtested as well as run in ‘real-time’ to create  both strategy level and ETF level re-balancing instructions.
