Angel Broking ARQ Demo
In this ARQ Angel Broking Review, our team tried to have a walk-through of the technology and the following were our observations. It basically takes in few inputs from the user around:
It uses the current trends, user inputs and develops a future predictive analysis to calculates the best possible asset allocation strategy for that particular client both in Equity and Mutual Funds (Large, small, mid, multi-cap and ELSS funds) segments.
Based on the inputs given by the team, the ARQ system within Angel Eye provided us with the following allocations.
The way it basically works is that if you are looking to invest ₹1,50,000 in Equity, ARQ recommends you buy “Top 3 Stocks” for that particular day.
You have to invest ₹50,000 equally in these “Top 3 stocks” for a period of 1 month and then wait for next month’s “Top 3 stocks”.
If for your portfolio, these “Top 3 stocks” stay the same then you don’t have to take any action, however, in case there is a difference then you are supposed to sell off the stocks that do not appear in the next month’s recommendation and buy new recommendations.
ARQ Angel Broking facility is also available in the mobile trading app of Angel Broking for Equity investments too that will help you to know how you can kick off your investing:

ARQ Angel Broking Concerns
Some of the concerns with ARQ Angel Broking:
Since the concept is technology-driven, it is very hard to prove anything if something goes wrong.
Although it is the first such step towards digitization in trading recommendation it will still take some time to prove its value.
The engine does not give or promises any range of return percentage. That is simply strange for the reason that at one place the broker claims that the engine has been run over millions and billions of data points and on the other hand, they don’t have any clarity on the kind of returns a client can expect by following the exact same stocks and holding those for the recommended duration.
“The biggest flaw is that the broker claims the recommended stocks change every day while it is not always the case.”
The investment duration for ARQ recommendations is at least 12 months, so users can not ripe quick benefits with this concept.
ARQ engine’s capability is limited to Equity and Mutual funds. There is no set up for Commodities, Currency or any other investment segments.
We think that ARQ is suitable for users with the following set of benefits it provides:
Users who are digital savvy and prefer online modes of trading.
Anybody who is looking to enter into trading or investing in mutual funds but does not have the know-how of how the market works and wants to work with lower risk.
Anybody who is looking for recommendations but does not really prefer or have the time to go on calls on each to understand the best possible.
Since the complete concept is based on an automated algorithm, there are no chance of any human errors that can lead
