Composer helps give solo investors some of the power of a hedge fund

Graphic of colorful lines.

TL;DR: As of August 14, you can get your first month of the Composer Pro Subscription for free. (It’s $24 per month after that.)


Elon Musk now says he never suggested people should buy cryptocurrencies. That’s easy for him to say after the already highly combustible crypto market has recently started to combust. But after years of tweeting about crypto, including his seemingly personal favorite dogecoin, the Tesla chief now says all that chat was never an endorsement.

The moral of the story is that it’s probably better to depend on your own knowledge than the opinions of a billionaire. Composer is a tool that can help bring your skill set up to what it needs to be for success in investing. There are still no guarantees when it comes to investing (and there never will be), but a knowledgeable investor is probably going to beat a newbie every time.

While automated trading for the personal investor has been available before, Composer is hoping to push the idea forward, designed to deliver the immediacy of hedge fund-style investments on a platform that’s supposed to be as streamlined and intuitive as they come for retail investors. Composer tries to make it easy for novice investors to create their own portfolio strategies in a visually based, no-code environment, along with automatic trading triggered by your own established transaction rules.

For those just getting their feet wet, Composer offers dozens of preset fund strategies called symphonies. Each is composed around themes, like Stocks or Bonds: Ride the Winner, which fluctuates between stocks or bonds depending on their returns for the past three months. Or Big Tech Momentum, which invests in the two big tech stocks showing the best performance over the past month. With each, users can look into a symphony’s returns history, begin to understand how it works and decide if it’s a practical choice for them.

While shoppers can add any of those symphonies to their portfolio, they can also create symphonies of their own with the Composer Editor. Editor is like a garage for investors, designed to allow users to take each symphony apart, then use pieces to construct their own strategies. Editor is also supposed to make it easy to put your philosophies to the test, evaluating your investing ideas by backtracking and extrapolating what their performance would have been over the past six months.   

And since most people don’t have time to watch every investment constantly for perfect buy and sell times, Composer is also made to automate purchases to carry out your guidelines like clockwork. You set your buy and sell points based on nuanced measures like standard deviation, max drawdown, or relative strength Index (RSI) of each investment. Or you can decide a timeline for buying and selling, and once that threshold is reached, Composer is set up to make the transaction automatically.

It takes about 90 seconds to sign up and create your own Composer account. Once the account is funded, you can invest in a pre-made symphony or create your own to get your investing journey underway. Get your first month free, no code required, on a Composer Pro Subscription (regularly $24/month).
