DIY System Trading

leave a comment »

Can a person, having full time occupation, do the system trading by himself? The short answer is “Yes, but too risky”.

Why? By far the hardest, the most time consuming work that requires certain qualifications as well is system development itself. And this is not an issue. Companies like Covestor, Collective2 or Zulutrade have done a good job to offer sufficient amount of back-tested and well-maintained trading systems to choose from. To acquire some basic working knowledge on trading system analysis shouldn’t be a major problem either.

The key issue with DIY system trading is still far from 100% reliable routing of the trade from the system vendor to live account. The hard fact is that automated system trading from to time results in mismatched positions in live account. Mismatched positions, if not corrected in timely manner, is one of the costliest mistakes one can make in system trading.
