Mechanical trading systems have been the only verifiable means of vetting out the true worth of a trading methodology over the course of time. Never before have so many trading programs been available to the general public. The technology boom has brought the ability to program and test trading systems to anyone with a high speed internet connection.
However, the purchase of :
· Soybeans doesn’t make one a farmer.
· A Nike driver doesn’t come with Tiger Woods’ talent.
· A 10 speed doesn’t make one Lance Armstrong.
Here at Commodity & Derivative Advisors, we have an intimate understanding of trading system design and implementation. Andy Waldock first published the DCB-Bond system in Futures Truth over ten years ago where it has been a top ten market performer. This system is purely technical in its development yet, continues to be a solid performer. Our Tradestation programming has grown to accommodate fundamental and psychological data into our systems. This can be seen in our incorporation of the put/call ratio and Vix index into our stock index day trading system, “Attacking the Indices on Multiple Fronts,” and also through our proprietary work using the CFTC’s Commitment of Traders data at COTSignals for swing trading in all market sectors.
Over the course of time, we have seen some trading systems that work and some that haven't. We have a working knowledge of executable systems and we've seen the "perfect system" that's impossible to trade. Ultimately, trading system success comes down to a real world understanding of technology, data, and brokerage.
