Once you start using ARQ, it provides recommendations on a periodic basis through notifications sent via SMS. So, all you need to do is execute trades as per ARQs recommendations & thus become your own fund manager.
No, you cannot. ARQ is available exclusively for Angel Broking customers. To use ARQ, you have to open a Demat Account with Angel Broking (which takes about 1 Hour if you have your documents ready). Once your Angel Broking Demat Account is active you can access & use ARQ on the same day
ARQ is an advisory product & not a PMS product. There is no enrollment fee or minimum committed investment. Once you receive the recommendations, if you wish to you can go ahead with the recommendations or decide not to.
ARQ Advisory is based on a model whose performance has been optimized to provide recommendations with high outperformance and strike rates. The model has been tested using scientific back-testing and has also been validated based on its track record. The model has been calibrated to take advantage of the upticks in the stocks or mutual funds during an investment period.
ARQ is a disciplined stock investment strategy. You must buy all 3 stocks in approximately an equal amount. The holding period is 1 month. After 1 month, you will receive a notification intimating of the list of Top 3 stocks on that day. If some or all of the stocks differ from the ones you are currently holding, then you must sell your existing holdings and buy the newly recommended stocks.
Eg. 1st June 2016 Recommendations: Buy Piramal Enterprises, JSW Steel, Bajaj Finance.
1st July 2016 Recommendations: Buy Piramal Enterprises, JSW Steel, Pidilite.
Based on the above, on 1st June 2016, you should buy an equal amount of Piramal Enterprises, JSW Steel, Bajaj Finance. On 1st July, one of the recommendations has changed from Bajaj Finance to Pidilite. Hence, you must sell Bajaj Finance & Buy Pidilite.
Unlike other advisory products, ARQs stock advice works at a portfolio level, designed to keep you invested 365 days a year in the Top 3 best quality stocks. The engine is optimized to provide the best returns over a 12 month period. Hence, there is no individual target price or target returns from each stock, but rather you should follow the strategy for 12 consecutive months to get optimum returns at the portfolio level.
ARQ Equity strategy needs to be implemented over a 12 month time period at least. In the past six years, over any 12-month period, on an average ARQs stock strategy delivered 49% annual returns, beating the Sensex by 34%. And thats after considering transactions costs. This performance is not just from one point of time to another, but the average performance irrespective of whichever month you would have started applying this strategy. Harnessing the true compounding power of equities, between Jan 2009 to Jan 2016, Rs1 lakh invested in ARQs stock strategy would have become Rs13.6 lakhs as against Rs2.6lakhs if invested in the Sensex over the same period.
ARQ stock recommendations beat the Sensex 92% of the time in the past six years, provided the strategy was continued for 12 consecutive months. The strike rate for a 1 month period without any reinvestment is 62% after factoring in charges. This means that ARQ stock recommendations beat the Sensex 62% of the time in the past six years, if invested for only 1 month. The reason for the better strike rate over 12 months is 2-fold: firstly, the number of months that the recommendations underperform are lesser than the outperforming months. Secondly and more importantly, in the months when ARQ recommendations underperform, the quantum of underperformance is much lesser than the quantum of outperformance in the positive months i.e. the risk-reward ratio is favourable. By keeping you invested 365 days a year, it helps you capture the significant up-moves in several stocks so that eventually you end up on top by a healthy margin, as demonstrated by the validated results.

The strategy involves disciplined investing. You must invest in all 3 stocks equally. You must sell within a month and buy the next set of 3 stocks.
As a part of ARQ Stock Advisory, you will receive recommendations to Buy Top 3 stocks by SMS notification. These 3 stocks are selected from a universe of high quality fundamental stocks. These stock recommendations are updated daily, so you must make sure to buy the 3 stocks which are recommended as the top buys on the day you choose to invest.
New set of stocks will be recommended every month. They may or may not be same as last month. For the next month those are the stocks that are expected to give maximum returns, so irrespective of the returns generated in the previous month, you should not hold on to the previous month stocks if the list of stocks has changed this month.
ARQ is empowered by advanced technology:
Teraflops of processing power
The returns are calculated after taking into account the brokerage charges (weve taken 3.5% for 12 churns, implying 24 Buy/Sell transactions i.e. around 15paisa per transaction). Plus, STT has been taken, Service Tax is taken, so basically the returns arrived at are after all charges.
Note: Short Term Capital Gains Tax not considered, just as banks also do not quote interest rate post tax, nor do we give Target price and target upside in any Fundamental/Technical, etc. net of tax. But, for reference the investor can keep in mind 15% short-term capital gains tax, which means that returns would be lower by around 6.5% in the 6-year testing period.
Dont just take our word for it
Our goal with ARQ from the inception was to challenge, evaluate and scientifically back-test every piece of investment wisdom & logic. ARQs performance test results are available for you to examine, before you take the plunge with your hard-earned money.
The strategy has been optimized to give the best performance over a 1 year period. Due to the volatile nature of stocks, daily/weekly/monthly returns can tend to fluctuate, so the ideal recommended investment duration is 12 months.
ARQ offers recommendations for Mutual Funds (Lumpsum & SIP) and Equity Stocks.
All Angel Broking customers can access & use ARQ through Angel Eye or the Angel Broking App.
