Trading System Design: A Practical Guide
What makes a good trading system? How do we know if one entry or exit is better than another? How do we come up with a trading system that suits our personality and lifestyle, and meets our trading objectives? In this practical guide to trading system development, Alan will outline the process of investigating, testing and quantifying trading ideas and point out some of the pitfalls typically made along the way. He will demonstrate the role skill and luck play in trading, and will show why some entries and exits work better than others. He’ll also discuss why just getting the market direction right is not enough to make consistent gains over the long run, and round off with a demonstration of designing a fully exposed system with real edge in the market. If you want to find out how your current system stacks up, or are on the lookout for a better system, then Alan will highlight the steps to take and show some of the tools available to you.
