System Trading Do’s and Do Not’s

leave a comment »

Zulutrade sent a newsletter the other day.

I agree with some of the “Do’s” . I disagree with “3 hours or less per trade” and “win % over 90%” as it unnecessary narrows the choice of trading styles and ignores the concept of expectancy.

On the “Avoid” side, I would suggest that any system which is less than 3 months old is a new system. From experience, there may be systems which perform splendidly for weeks and months, then crash … however, if there is a fundamental flaw with the system, it is likely to be exposed within 3 months.



Author shares some personal experience. Honest enough. However, I believe this is simple once you grasp the concept of system trading and apply some common sense to evaluation of the proposals.
