ROBO FUTURES TRADER
DISCOVER THE POWER OF ALGORITHMIC TRADING AND THE PROCESS THAT I USE TO CREATE WINNING STRATEGIES AND PORTFOLIOS
Twitter traders will promise large piles of cash if you join sub, social trading platforms encourage harnessing the wisdom of the crowd and professionals want to manage your money for a fee. I prefer to manage my own trades and trade using automated strategies that I can test, prove and then set live to manage my money. This site describes my journey, process for strategy development and results. I hope that you will enjoy following my journey to becoming a full time trader and money manager.
WHY I CHOSE TO FOCUS ON AUTOMATED TRADING
As someone who began trading with a full time job there were two main paths open to me, either become a Swing Trader using filters to find positions to hold for a couple of days or to use Expert Advisors, Trading Algorithms and Systematic Trading.
Personally I found that Swing Trading had a steep learning curve and the requirement to choose you own companies to trade that this form of trading was more psychologically taxing than the fully tested short term intra day systems that I now favour.
Using the Prorealtime platform it is possible to analyse a strategy introducing out of sample data and for me more effectively measure to expected maximium risk, drawdown and profit from taking a system live.
